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 […]

Another week, 6/6 and 2/4

Solid clear of SSC and two bosses of TK.

Hopefully that means that we’ve got the farm content covered and will be moving in on Al’ar for real this next week. (He really is pretty for meteor-breathing, touchy aggro, pampered, sissy fire-parrot)


This week was frustrating though, with some leadership musical chairs on Friday, and the feeling that people just didn’t have their A-game there, especially since we took out Vashj on Thursday instead. Friday’s momentum seemed off; we had a lot of broken sheep and people not paying attention/pulling aggro on trash.

Raid Chat Comment of the Evening: So, do you still get the set bonuses if you win the rolls on body parts from two different dead mages?”

We also had what I can only call an … unusual … Void Reaver kill. Remember the above about people not paying attention? Well, we wiped once because two people were standing just outside melee range… and hitting melee with orbs. Discussion was had, and one of them fixed it (and stood well within melee range). The other? Yeah. He just stood there, happily flash of light spamming, while he ate two orbs (both of which splashed onto some of the melee). The second one, fortunately for the melee, killed him.

It also killed another healer. By 50% we were down to two healers (and a shadow priest). At 30%? One healer and a shadow priest, almost exclusively melee alive. That one healer… was me, standing in the middle of the melee, taking the poundings with everyone else, and counting down every last second before I could chug another mana pot. And while there is no amount of gold or sedatives that could make me want to go through those last 30% again, we did manage to kill him.

Really though, I’d much, much, MUCH rather have kills where people don’t die, nobody has to stress out, and we all get happy loots faster. Having a good story is kind of fun, and its nice to know that we can pull it together in the rough spots… but next time, let’s just not have rough spots.


My blood pressure appreciates it…

  1. He’s a pain to learn, but once you have the fight down he should become easy… We used to do it with 2 pally tanks for adds (one prot pally and a ret pally taking one for the team) but last weekend we did it with only one and it worked well…

    Now, if only the server would stop going down on sundays maybe we could do some progress on SSC…

  2. We also only do it with one pally tanking all of the adds. This pally gets three dedicated healers.

    The active tank (whoever has Al’ar) also has three dedicated healers.

    About your VR kill: it sounds like your pally really doesn’t belong in T5 … why is he/she getting invites?
