Last night we were supposed to continue our 25 man assault on Ice Crown Citadel. Unfortunately, too many peeps weren’t available and we didn’t want to “pug” the remaining. Soo… We decided do go pay a first visit (finally) to a new, um… Friend. Last time we were in Ulduar, one of our team got the last piece of whatever that he needed to get the key to the Planetarium.
Yeah, we spent an hour wiping over and over on Algalon the Observer. Yeah, I was tasked with killing the stars.. We did, at one point, have him down to 55% or so before we wiped.. It definitely is a big “strategy” encounter. Lots of stuff going on and situational awareness is a must. DBM only can help so much. Timing heading into the black holes.. Having the constellations tanked to some of them, but not all of them. Taking down the stars, but no more than one at a time and not when any other damage is happening.. Fun Fun Fun. If we were hoping that our “uber” geared selves (Somewhat ICC geared I guess.) would just mow through him, we were mistaken.
All in all, it was fun learning a new fight again. It is definitely more complex than some of the others out there but I’m sure given a few more weeks, we’ll get it down. I also spent more time on the Mage and even got another level on the Rogue (72 baby!).. I specced the Mage secondary to Arcane and enjoyed it very much in the random heroic I did. A few more Emblems of Triumph and I can pick up a nice shoulder.
In non-wow news. My copy of Mass Effect 2 for 360 is on it’s way! I should get it tomorrow and then, when I get a chance, I’m going to play it like CRAZY! Oh yeah, and we record Episode 9 of Polygamerous tonight! Head over to http://www.polygamerous.com for more information. If you haven’t listened yet.. DO IT! It’s so much fun.. Really.. I promise!
