Ta'yak is known for his patience and intelligence. In battle, he is a master at discovering his opponent's weaknesses and awaiting the perfect opportunity to strike. Ta'yak's skill with a blade is unmatched, and he cherishes imparting his martial knowledge on young mantid warriors. So there we go, our first heroic kill in the Heart of Fear. The fight has two particularly annoying mechanics. First Unseen Strike is hilariously inconsistent, you devise a tactic that seems flawless on paper, every stacks up and then 2-3 die with others getting hit in a mechanic that is supposed to spread damage. So we threw that tactic out of the window and just stacked. Works. The other annoyance is reaching the second and final phase where you nearly die running to the other end, quicker if you can't dodge tornadoes. But we made it down the end of the room once and then a sufficient number arrived down the other end and we got a kill after a 145k wipe the week before. The next patch is not too far way now so there is only one or two more encounter we want to take a look at before that and we can forget these previous three instances existed, but as it stands we have killed every heroic we have attempted!
