Two days, two raids, no loot. Tuesday night was our 1/2 guild Ulduar 10 run. We got through FL, Razorscale, Ignis, XT, IC, Kologarn, Thorim, Hodir and Freya that night.. (FL was on 2 towers up others were on “easy” mode) I think we did pretty well.. But, of course, absolutely nothing dropped for Fyra. The one thing that was remotely an upgrade for me (and not mail, plate or AP leather) I got outrolled on. Not that I didn’t have fun. I had a blast. The group is really good and lots of fun, but it is difficult to increase my DPS when I am unable to pick up any upgrades.
Wednesday night we did 25.. Things didn’t go as swimmingly. We don’t have a regular group for the 25. We didn’t really have much problem with FL, but then again we did easy mode. I died in the first 5 seconds as I was, unfortunately, incorrectly shot up on to the tank.. Well, specifically, they missed… It was nice and relaxing though. Moving on to Razorscale. This fight went well in general. We pushed REALLY close (like 10 sec) to the enrage timer, but we still got it down. Ignis was our bane of the night. We just couldn’t get him down. Constantly getting to about 35% or so and failing. We even stopped and went to do XT and come back. In the end though, he was just too much for our group and we gave up vowing to be back on Sunday! Wish us lucK!
Not sure what is going on tonight. I have company in from out of town starting tonight until Sunday, so my play time will be a bit more restricted. Maybe I’ll finally get my mage into some heroics or 10man naxx or something Later!
Ah, Midsummer is here. Again a holiday rears it’s head and the servers get all crowded. Instances can’t be launched because everyone is in Slave Pens trying to kill the seasonal boss. It’s great. I have to say that using the bonfires for extra XP on my non-80’s is a tempting idea. Not sure I want to ride around (or even fly around) all over the place to do it. But I probably will. Besides screwing around with the Festival, I continued to do quests on my Mage (for profit and achievement) and I spent my 1k gold on dual speccing him too. I used a Frost-Fire build as the second spec for now. I bummed it off one of our raiding mages in the guild.
I even pulled out Fimlys on Monday night to join in a 25man Naxx PUG. We did great through the plague wing, but then everything fell apart as we tried to do Military. I did pick up a much needed ring upgrade off of Noth. Other than that, it’s been pretty quiet. I was away for the weekend for Father’s Day (hope all you dads had a good one) so there was much less WoW playing than usual.
Since we’ve been pretty much playing things by ear recently, I really have no idea what we are doing tonight. So, I suppose you will find out tomorrow (or the next day)..
Two days ago… Well, more like nights.. Um.. On Wednesday night I joined up with a 25-man Naxx run. It was being headed by the usual RL that’s been putting together the recent semi-pugs we’ve been running. A bunch of other guildies were invited too. It was requested that I bring my Priest in to help heal, so Fhuun got the call from to bullpen!
We headed in and, I have to say, the pace was pretty, um, quick. We did great, the priest tankage on Raz went ok even. We lost some people along the way (as generally happens with pugs) and sooner or later it turned out we had TOO many healers.. So, I volunteered to switch to my Shadow spec and start DPSing. Now, I’ll be the first to say that my shadow spec/gear needs some work.. Lots of work.. However, Fhuun became my first toon to ever finish Naxx25.. Who woulda thunk?
Anyway, the next day (last night) was an Ulduar 10 run that seems to be becoming standardized too. Other than some issues with FL (we did 2 towers up) we smashed through the first wing with no troubles and then onto Kologarn and Auriya ( ok.. if I misspelled her I’m sorry, I am just too lazy to look it up every time and my memory, it is not so good ). At that point I had to head out as we were getting ready to interview Veronica Belmont as the Twisted Nether Guest of the Week for the upcoming ep 49.
That’s about it.. Tonight is the continuation of that Ulduar10 run as long as they didn’t complete it last night .. Hope everything is going great and I’ll talk at you tomorrow.
