What have I been doing lately? Well, this weekend I spent time raiding (I know, shocker). We did 10 and 25 man “Ulduars”. In 25, we got up to Thorim and then called it. Received nothing in loot other than badge(r)s. Things went really well and we had a really good group. We wiped a couple times on Thorim (arena wiped, flushed us in the hall.. [hear large flushing sound as big ball of lightning comes and one shots everyone]). It was getting late, so the RL called it.
While we were working through Ulduar last night, I was reminded about the 3.2 Tome of Cold Weather Flight. This book is purchasable by a level 80 from the riding vendor at the landing in Dalaran. You can trade this book to any same-faction/same-server/same-account toon. They can use this from 68+ to learn cold weather flying and let them fly in Northrend. Of course, if they didn’t already have the fllying skill and a flying mount, they would need to go get those before trying to use the book. I picked up two of these. One for my Paladin (who does NOT have flying) and one for my Rogue (who does). Anyway, yeah.. I’m a noob.
Last up, we got a group together to do the Daily Heroic (which was Azjol’Nerub for our server last night). We headed in and it was asked if we were interested in trying for the first achievement. “SURE!”. We pulled normally (each group in turn) and did not kill the named creatures for the achievement. We failed. We then tried the Zerg offensive.. Kill the boss as quickly as possible and ignore the adds until afterwards.. Well, after a few more tries, it finally worked.. We killed the boss and got the achievement… and then promptly died. BUT! All the adds despawned (including the named ones, etc) and DID NOT RESPAWN! Woot!
Next up was Mr. Spider.. We did not attempt the achievement here (kill ‘em before he webwraps the openings at the top to stop the adds coming down).. We killed ‘em before he got a chance to do that (completely by accident) and got the achievement! Woot!
Last but not least, the boss we came here to kill! He used to seem like one tough cookie, but we steamrolled him under. Not only did we kill him with no problems, but we also got an achievement (the last in there for heroic I think) for killing him within 4 minutes! Woot!
So, tonight, I have no idea what’s going on. We might be trying ToC25 but then again, no idea. I suppose I could possibly come back tomorrow and do a blog post about it, but why would I want to do that? :P Have a good one.
