    On our first normal run, my raid team accidentally pulled the boss because the tank thought it was just another wave of trash mobs.

    After the pull and the Masters boss was dead, everyone was quiet on Discord until one broke the silence with “so, this raid has some interesting trash mobs with cool mechanics.” As with every “first boss” encounter in a new raid, this is a very easy fight, especially on Normal.
