Sorry for the slow weekend, I was out of town.
On Friday night (wow, that was a long time ago… LOL) we were supposed to do a Karazhan run, but, after waiting around for over an hour to get it started, we scrubbed it due to lack of a tenth and not enough healing power. I managed to join a guild group to go run Mechanar to get the other half of my Arcatraz key. The run went really well considering that none of us really knew the instance that well (for some it was our first foray). We wiped a few times, but nothing major and it was really a lot of fun. We got the second boss down JUST before we wiped :) It was amazing, she fell down just as I died! The most interesting part of Mechanar is the “waves” of mobs you get just before the final boss. We ended up doing pretty well by sheeping the last mob in a group to gain back mana, etc. I forgot that Fim can “feign death” and get out of combat to eat/drink.. (DUH!) Ah well.. We wiped on our first try with the last boss because we tried to kill the Adds… Bad idea.. The warrior can fear them, so we had him do so on our second try and DPSed the boss down and it was simple.
Our group consisted of Hunter (Me), Warrior (Prot I think), Mage, Druid, Paladin (Holy). We had a lot of fun and I think I picked up a new Gun in the process (I’ll have to look)… Unfortunately, he didn’t drop the Beast Lord Helmet that I think he has, so I’ll probably be back again. Got a good deal of Sha’tar rep though which is really nice. Since it is such a fun, quick instance I would be more than willing to go back for another go.
Anyway.. Like I said, I was out of town all weekend for some sad business so I had no WoW time. I’ll hopefully get into something fun tonight. Maybe a HEROIC run of Underbog or somesuch (since the only heroic key I have is Coilfang.) Either that or some more REP grind.
