I’ve got a legitimate question/discussion to present to the classic forums this morning. I know these are a rarity these days amid the AV threads and “classic is dying” threads, so play nice.
My guild started BWL last night, and after 3 fairly easy bosses, we hit a wall on Firemaw. My raid leader instructed everyone, all 40 people, to equip their Onyxia Scale Cloaks because it “might” save us if we get breathed on. Okay, sound logic I suppose. Gives us some insurance in case something goes wrong.
However, one one or two of our wipes, the raid DID get breathed on, and nearly everyone got one shot. Myself and several others voiced concerns that the cloak is useless if we are getting one shot anyway, and we should use our throughput cloaks instead. But we were shot down and told to keep them on.
Is this right? This seems like we are needlessly gimping our raid for no added benefit.
