After a fairly shocking start to the week, we eventually stormed through the Throne of Thunder in order to spark up an interest against the Twin Consorts and Lei Shen. Although we actually wiped once on the Twins due to an unfortunate DC (RIP Shade), we quickly picked ourselves up and zapped them dead the attempt after. All it took tonight was 7 electifying attempts, and the first time we all survived and charged into phase 3 the slayer of gods shorted out to the might of ExC!
Puns aside, and a truly excellent job to everyone, we now have heroic modes to look forward to from next lockout. We'll be hitting one new heroic boss each week, so if we down the first one in the first night, we'll be doing the rest on normal, and attempting the second easiest heroic the week after - the rest of the week will be spent on farm content in normal to get people more opportunities at 4pc bonuses/legendary metas/etc. So homework for next lockout is to check out just one boss instead of three in advance - Jin'rokhtheBreaker - unless you choose to look up more of course :P I have linked three videos there to check out however.
We will also be implementing a new 3-strike rule for bosses on farm in Inferno. These bosses as of writing this post is all but Lei Shen on normal mode. If you fail three times on these farm bosses, it is up to the raid leader/officers' discretion as to whether or not you'll be rotated out. This is also subject to the likes of Matty, of myself, of Frackel, Kev, Mante, etc - Some people have bad nights, we can all own up to it, and for the sake of the 9 other people in the raid's enjoyment, we're implementing this rule so we can push the easy, farm content faster so we can get to progression quicker.

With honourable mentions to Shadeknight who had WoW issues and Scope who got tied up before raid, and both unfortunately missed out on the final normal mode boss kill of this tier.
