It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

Monday of Raids
comment 1 Written by on April 20, 2009 – 8:10 am
  • This week saw a lot of raiding action, with Annorah running OS10 and Naxx 10, and Aely running Malygos/OS25 and Ulduar 25 and then Ulduar 10 last night.  I’ll have thoughts about Paladin stuff later this week.
  • TRI saw the death of Flame Leviathan, Razorscale, XT-002 Deconstructor, and were VERY close to taking down Kologarn this week.  We ran out of raid time before we ran out of boss, unfortunately.  I expect to see him down this week.  (We skipped Ignis, since we would’ve been attempting him before his hotfixes went in that kept him from randomly oneshotting raid members)
  • My Ulduar 10 raid saw Flame Leviathan, Razorscale, and XT-002 Deconstructor down as well, but we DID attempt Ignis, since his bugs were supposedly fixed.  Though we didn’t see bugginess, we didn’t have time to really put in more than two attempts – both of which were solid.  If this 10 man runs again next Sunday (which I hope it does, I had TONS of fun), I expect him to go down as well.
  • Both raids got the Gravity Bomb achievement – pre-hotfix.
  • As much fun as I’m having with my *raids*, I’m not entirely sure yet about Ulduar.  I think this is largely a class/healing based issue, however, and I do like the boss encounters I’ve run up against so far.  I just… well, I’m not sure I like healing them.  More on that later when I talk about Paladin healing in there.
  • I’m running Auctioneer again, on a tentative, trial by fire sort of basis.  It’s a HUGE memory hog, even when it’s just running on my banker, but I’m told, with the right knowhow, I can make good supplemental gold doing it.  Having shelled out 2K for dual specs so far, plus an epic flight training approaching for Annylais, I need to both farm more herbs AND work on making the most out of the auction house.
  • The Feathermoon glyph market took a nose dive yesterday.  I’m hoping it boosts back up slightly, as I still have glyphs to sell.
  • Farming herbs for two healing classes worth of mana potions, elixirs, and flasks takes quite awhile – especially when you add in a Paladin tank (my husband) whose flasks and such I also make, as part of our trade-alliance.

  1. As bad as it sounds, after the first day taking a few shots at Ignis, we skipped him in my 10 man the 2nd day in. He’s certainly not impossible, but I just knew that we’d have more fun with Iron Council and Kologarn and ultimately, getting closer to Yogg-Saron quicker.

    I’m thinking next week, we’ll probably even skip Razorscale and just go FL > XT > Kologarn and then see how far we can progress from there. One thing that I’m really, really loving about Ulduar is the teleport pads everywhere and the lack of trash. I can really see this place going very fast when bosses are getting 1 or even 2 shotted 😀
