Backhanding Blackhand

If we downed a boss, you can read about it here. In detail. Sometimes, too much detail.

Backhanding Blackhand

Raid bosses yell a lot of crap. They're always talking trash.
From Ragnaros to Prince Thunderaan to Illidan Stormrage.
Blackhand was certainly no exception:

To be honest, sometimes I get a little sick of it, so this time we called him out:

Note the Resto Druid off to the side completely oblivious to what the rest of the raid is doing...and the DPS warrior tea-bagging the boss' corpse...some things never change

I'm not gonna lie, this kill felt good. Blackhand is a fun boss fight, nice mechanics, and a strat we tweaked to have distinctly different roles for a Main Tank, an Off Tank, two melee teams, and the ranged - it was a real throwback to old-style raiding. We even spent a couple of nights wiping on it while learning. I can't wait until we reach him on heroic.

Oh and I'd just like to make this final point:

If that's your hand, where's the black?
Oh yeah.
