    Default Do guilds still use tomes of Matron?

    Today for fun we decided to mess around with not using tomes. I must say i was quite suprised but the fight was almost easier without any adds. We pulled 37k raid dps and she was down before 60stacks. Is this something other guild do?

    We don't use any tomes and kill it with around ~40 stacks, and our DPS isn't anything to brag about.
    AFK.

    We still use them once at the end. We don't have to, but the fight is just boring if you don't flood the place with adds at least once. Everyone saves their AoE CD's for the last 10% or so and we all watch our DPS skyrocket.

    We still use a couple tomes; to be honest we hadn't even thought about not using them...
    im sure we could get away with it.

    and by "guilds" you mean only the ones that are fully HK geared now :P
    progression guilds that aren't geared would fail without tomes @ such high stacks.
    It would flatten their tanks and her purple circles of doom would 1 shot people. lol

    Nothing wrong with using tomes. Of course guilds still use them.

    we use 1 tome just to make life easy on melee

    no reason not too really. though with the new puri aoe shields i could see not using them perhaps if u have 2 puris keeping them up.

    If you can kill her before she gets enough stacks to 1-shot melee (very difficult), then by all means go with this method.

    Otherwise, it's a raid dps loss to keep your warriors at range (and rogues, for that matter)

    Matron uses tomes on us.

    I mean, I guess it would just be a guy who you know, grabs bananas and runs. Or, um, a banana that grabs things. I donít know.
    Why would a banana grab another banana? I mean, those are the kind of questions I donít want to answer.

    To kill the warriors. (Go marton!)
    Be careful of the words you speak. Keep them short and sweet! For you may never know, from day to day, which ones you will have to eat!

    Use all 4 tomes first then go. That ups the fun factor.
