The more TRI explores Tempest Keep the more I like the instance. Granted, it’s been a bit gimmicky as a resto shaman – my entire strategy in there is (quite literally) “don’t stand in fire, spam chain heal”. In a lot of cases, it doesn’t even really matter what I spam chain heal at. Just spamspamspam, because there’s so much random raid damage.
Then last night we fought Al’ar for the first time.
I think my opinion of Phase1 Al’ar is going to be similar to my opinion of Leotheras, except that Al’ar is a lot prettier. Which is to say, I am a useless waste of space.
Fortunately, once phase 2 started up, things picked up a bit. We had some issues with the adds (just figuring out how/where to tank them), but I fully expect to see him toasted next week. We figured out the “don’t stand in the fire” bit for Solarian, and last night the problems were really add-based and not positioning based in phase 1, so I think we’ll have a hang of “don’t stand in fire” for next week. Personally, I’d like to head back in and see if we can’t take him tonight, but the higherups have decided that there’s a water elemental, a fish thing, a demon possessed angry-elf, a giant farting dwarf, and a pack of Naga that need to die in SSC tonight (with possibly a few attempts on Lady Snakehair Herself).

So, in the interest of being interesting, and because he’s generally awesome like that, today’s post is brought to you by none other than Tarquin ap Danwyrith, rogue, rapscallion, and mastermind behind the madness that is Totally Raids, Incorporated.
I’ve been raiding with TRI since August (I think?) and it’s been a great time. Finding a progressing 25 man raid that not only is RP friendly but that has active character interactions during the raid itself isn’t really easy, even on a (so-called) RP Server, and I’m really happy to have the chance to raid with them. Tarquin, being our fearless leader, has had the rather unenviable job of corralling the 25 headless chickens into being 5/6 SSC/ 2/4 TK, and somewhere in there he’s had some time to reflect on all that leadership…
Why Everyone Should Lead A Raid

Beginning the process of switching over from wordpress.com to self hosted wordpress blogging! Yay for some control over how things look around here. I’d appreciate your patience as I get things transferred over, and hopefully all will go smoothly from here.
I will be switching my feedburner feed to point at this site shortly, so any of you that have subscribed through the RSS feed shouldn’t have too much trouble.
