So if you didn't know KIN Raiders the Korean guild were able to take down Heroic Deathwing. The Deathwing encounter itself seeming much easier then the Spine Encounter. The guild themselves actually sat down and answered a few questions from Playforum, here are a couple questions I thought were interesting.
Q: The time you spent on Madness, compared to Spine, was rather short. How
would you compare the difficulty between the two?A: Spine was harder. It
was as if a huge wall was blocking your way. Every time you first encounter a
difficult boss, you can naturally feel that way. For Madness, it was like "hey,
this isn't so bad". As for the Spine, it was more like "we don't wanna repeat
this next week..." But no matter what, the members that had to be on stand-by
had to go through the most stress by far.
Q: In US & EU, many people are claiming that you used an exploit using
SLT, which allegedly negates a debuff that lowers your health.A:
Regarding that, we have received personal apologies from MMO-Champion and
Paragon website (From the people that made such claims). At that time, I wasn't
too concerned about it because I was focused on the next encounter. But when we
finally release the video of our kill, all of the suspicions will go away.
Q: For this raid, class specs seemed very critical. Can you give us a word on
that?A: For tanks, Paladins were far inferior to DKs and Druids. Thus,
prot Paladins were benched. Also, enhancement Shamans and Hunters had to be
benched for Madness encounter as the pets weren't attacking tendons. For
healers, holy Paladins and resto Shamans were good. Other healing classes had to
be on stand-by. And for caster DPS, boomkins had to be benched most of the time.
I want to thank all of them for sticking around for the entire duration of the
If you are actually interested in the the kill video of Spine of Deathwing you can see it here
So if I haven't said it enough a huge grats goes out to KIN Raiders for all of the hard work they put in. I know people are finding anyway to shoot them down because they are not the normal world first crew, but it isn't there fault that the likely suspects decided to exploit and fall behind. They did it and deserve the credit for it.
