We did a 25 man raid again last night. We headed into OS first and took it down with +1. Then we moved into Naxx and took down the Spider wing pretty easily. Although, for some reason (probably that we were low on healers) most of the tanks died (one by one) on Max. Meh…
We had to call it early as people needed to leave, hopefully we’ll go back in tonight. I then went and did a bunch of quests in Storm Peaks on Fyra and then got myself to Honored with Sons of Hodir and got my new shoulder enchant (very happy!). I did one daily and turned in 20 relics and found an everfrost chip! Woot!
I then travelled back to Sholazar and circled around farming for herbs. I got a bunch and then ended up logging in order to record the podcast. Like I said before I hope we’ll head in for the rest (as much as we can do) of Naxx 25 tonight. If not, maybe I’ll work on leveling the Pally a bit.. Excited to enjoy the new mount 😛
Still watching the 3.1 stuffs, but not getting all that upset (or excited) about anything yet. I have a feeling it will be a while before we actually see this on the live realms. We’re still trying to get through the current content, no need to rush new content yet. Of course, I wouldn’t mind having the dual-specs..
Another day, another Naxx. This time it really IS another Naxx. Well, another Naxx run that is. We finally got together our “Alt” run. Otherwise known as Group 3. This is a group of standby mains and alts. We ran with a Pally Tank and a Warrior Tank (A Main on off week, we have 5!). We also had 2 Holy Priests and 1 Holy Paladin. In addition, we brought 1 Rogue, 1 Mage, 1 DK, 1 Shaman (Ele) and 1 Warrior (Fury, I think).
It went really well! We got through the Spider wing with the only deaths being on the final boss near the end of the fight. Plague wing went pretty well also. Noth was generally easy and so was Heigan. Well, easy for me. We lost half the raid during the fight, but we 1-shot him anyway. Loetheb was also easy-peasy. We had some issues with Raz because one of the tanks hadn’t dealt with the mind controlling yet, but we got him on the second try.
Oh, and who did I bring? Fhuun! Yeah, I was one of the holy priests. The only problems I had were mana ones. I think that is one of the problems with the changes they are making in 3.1. Lower geared folk do not have the uber mana regen to disregard their mana levels like, supposedly, the better geared peeps. I was using everything in my power to keep up the healing. Note that i have not healed a raid since before 3.0 when they removed multi-potting (right?).. I did pick up some ring, but most of the loot was leather and nobody wanted it.
Tonight we start our 25 man run. I wonder if we are going to try 1 drake again? Anyway, I’ll let you know how things go tomorrow.
Once again, got a lot to talk about.. Well, maybe not so much. I’ll start with Friday though, and move on from there..
So, Friday was the second night of our 10 man Naxx run and we made it all the way to K’T. We gave him 2 tries and then had to give up for the night as people had to go. Prior to that, one of our tanks was having an issue that none of his special attacks worked… He tried removing all his addons and other stuff (which wasted an amazing amount of time). I had suggested somewhere in the middle of all this that he might have a stuck modifier key (Alt/Shift/Ctrl) and maybe he should bang on the keyboard a little to see if it would help. I also told him where to go to check the self-cast modifier and suggested he turn it off.. So, finally, after much ado with no result, he tried setting the self-cast modifier to none.. WHOA! It worked.. Sometimes I amaze even myself..
Anyway, Saturday and Sunday consisted primarily of leveling some alts. On Saturday I hopped on my mage, Fizz, for a bit to do some questing. I finished up Zangarmarsh and headed into Terokkar. Got him much closer to 66, but then switched to my Paladin, Furis. Why should I do that? Well, Pil and Kezz had rolled Death Knights and asked if I was interested in leveling with them when they hit outland. I hopped on the pally and got him all specced ret (he was unspecced previously, left that way since 3.0). I had no idea what I was doing.. The speccing part I got right, I think, but I was lost with all the different buttons.
After a little while I figured it out and on Sunday near the end of our questing, he dinged 61. I went and picked up his Charger (yeah yeah, I didn’t do the quest) and then set about leveling his enchanting profession. Why? I dunno. Just bored maybe? He got to about 235 before I called it a night. At least he will be able to Disenchant most if not all of the BC greens. Oh, I forgot that on Sunday night we also took down K’T with the 10 man group. We wiped once, but the second time was spot on. I think people are getting sloppy. Ah well..
Tonight? I have no idea. We might get the 10 man back together and do OS and then probably go back to leveling the paladin. Later!
