Wow. There hasn’t been a lot going on in my WoW life recently other than raiding. I haven’t been doing much in the way of leveling, although my priest is getting close to 85 now (6 million to go.. ugh..) and well, that’s about it. I don’t even tend to farm anymore because I have enough gold to just purchase flasks and food when I need them now. Oh, that reminds me that I need to pick up some more food before tomorrow’s raid!
Oh yeah, the title.. That’s really why you are here, right? Yeah, we finally got Cho’Gall down! No, not heroic. We’re still doing non-heroics. You know what? I really don’t care that we aren’t at heroics yet. We raid generally 3 nights a week for about 2 1/2 hours give or take. With this kill, we finally have “finished” one of the Raid Instances. No, nothing dropped for me.
I have to say that fight was a big pain. We couldn’t even reliably get him to the final phase either. Prior to getting him down, I think our best shot was 8% which isn’t too shabby either. The biggest issue we have in the first phase, of course, is the little slimy adds. The first 5 are easy but then it gets progressively more difficult when you get to 10 and then 15. We just push to get him to the next phase before group 4 comes out.
I’m sure we’ll go back there again this week, but I ‘ve noticed that once we’ve gotten a boss down, the second and further times go better. Of course, that stupid blind dragon seems to be the exception to the rule on that one.
EDIT: Oh, and as of the beginning of March, ‘this’ blog is 4 years old!!!
