Last night (as is almost always the case on Wednesday) we had more than enough people for ICC-25, so we had our usual ICC-25 clearing run.
What was different about last night was that it was the first time with the all-new +10% ICC buff, a 5% increase over the previous weeks' buff.
To make a long story short, there were some noticeable differences but they didn't make much difference in terms of progression for the evening.
- Our tanks had more health as did the rest of the raid, leading to increased survivability.
- Healer HPS actually went down. I guess this is due to all the healers doing more healing per spell, resulting in more over-healing. I could be wrong.
- Raid damage was higher. We managed to take down Blood Queen with 2 MC'd people at the end, something which probably would have meant a wipe before the buff.
Still all-in-all I think the effects of the buff are noticable and I hope this week we'll have some good attempts finally on LK-25.
In personal news I won a nice new necklace, replacing my old 251 necklace and bumping up my GS just above 6k. Yey :)
