The tldr is DHT 10 (+1), Nelth 11 (+1) and DHT 12 (completed, but did not make time). I believe finishing the 12 was their new personal best, and the only problem on the 12 was managing the dragon boss. The successful attempt on that boss was very smooth.
Congrats for a great week to Team Ice on what is definitely a tough set of affixes.

My feedback: dps continues to improve, but there is more work to do. We still take avoidable damage, but it is MUCH better. Our priest healer is lazy. Who invited that slacker? And two healing is hard, but we still had a good week.
Well, Legion pre-patch goes live on 7/19, so it is time to start pondering Legion. I am confident that anything we plan won’t survive the launch, but I am hoping for a similarly long raid season with this xpac. I think the key to success last time was consistent participation of the tanks and healers, and the willingness for players to play multiple roles .
My main concerns for this xpac are entirely personal. Since Blizzard chose to do their first late August launch ever, Nae and I will both be in Scotland for almost 3 weeks shortly after launch. Normally I would just be slightly bummed about being behind, but pretty confident that we could catch up fairly quickly. The mechanics of the Artifact weapon will make that trickier, given that it is so time-gated. We will just have to play that by ear.
I would like to start seeing what roles that people want to play so that I can get a sense of what I should target. Given my late start, I will likely take more of a filler role, at least in the beginning. I would very much like to keep healing, but I don’t want to hold things back with my slow start.
