Well, after an hour of two attempts we finally got the boss that was giving us trouble the other night down. It was all thanks to the guy that hits the gongs to stop Atramede's attack. He finally started not sucking (just kidding he was lowest DPS) and rung the gongs on time.
Then again... He DID die at about 50%. So I take back what I said about the not sucking. I actually died around 25% because the laser caught up to me. The guy who rang the gongs told my brother to ring the gong. My brother didn't hear him. So even though I could have run the gong myself, I didn't want to risk wasting a gong.
So of course, they downed him from 25% with five people. One of them died at 10%, but thank God for Ankhs. Lesson of the day: Druids are nice cause dey can BRes.
