A Noth Bites the Dust

Last night we attempted our first 25man raid with the new EPGP loot system. I have to say things went pretty smoothly both in bosses and in loot. We did OS25 first, 0 drakes up. If we had 25, we might have, but we only had 21. No problems with anything and our DPS was doing pretty well. 2 of the Druid, whomever glove tokens dropped and only 2 people asked for them.. Woot! Of course, my priority for later loot dropped, but that’s okay.

Next up, we moved to Naxx. We got another Elemental Shaman to join (a friend of a guildie) and other than some annoying wipes on the Grand Widow (I have no idea what was going wrong), we swept through the Spider wing pretty quickly. No good drops for me at all, but the emblems were nice anyway.. 🙂

After that we moved on to Noth.. Ugh.. He has been our nemesis previously in 25man, but this time we 1-shot him! It was pretty awesome and we only lost a couple of people during the whole fight. I have to commend the tanks for really stepping in and picking up those adds so efficiently and the healers for keeping alive anyone who happened to steal aggro. The DPS, of course, did a great job too, but we always do that (LOL)..

Max_022409_232124 That was the last boss for the night since some people had to get going. I think once we get used to the loot system and such, we’ll get better at this thing. We’ll hopefully go back into Naxx25 tonight if everyone shows up again.

Oh.. almost forgot that I got Fhuun up to 78 last night also. 2 more levels to go! Maybe next time we have a break from raiding I’ll suck a couple peeps into going into more instances. The quests give more XP, if I have them, but even if I don’t, I enjoy it more anyway.

Ok.. Gotta split! I’ll try to keep you informed!

Instance Priestly

Heading back to the end of last week.. We finished up Naxx-10 pretty easily and neither the dagger nor the mace dropped (I would have taken either, although the mace would have been better). I did a bunch of heroics this weekend also on Fyra. She now has over 60 emblems.. Not all that much to do with them though .. 🙁

We did get another timed CoS run down though. We got to the boss with 2 minutes left!!! But we got him down before the timer expired. I wish it would turn to seconds as it gets below 1 minute.. We really didn’t know how much time we had left, but we managed to do it!

I’ve also been working on leveling the priest more. He is now closer to level 78 (about 2 bars now).  I ran 2 instances with him last night and that moved him up nicely.  I should be able to get to 78 easily when I get back on him.

WoWScrnShot_022209_161852 I’m considering moving to Sholazar to quest after that (or maybe FOR that). I like the quests there significantly more than the ones in Grizzly. In addition, I can probably get a lot more mining done wandering around there doing quests than I can in Grizzy.  I did some of the quests in Sholazar, namely the ones to open up the flight point, but still have plenty there to do. Either that or I’ll push and go start the Hodir unlocking questline.. Hmm.. choices, choices..

We had an officer meeting last night to discuss our implementation of EPGP. If you are in the guild go check out the post on the guild website to get the details. Mainly just talked about points and how they will get allocated. I think it is going to work pretty well for us. I guess we’ll just have to see. Tonight we are doing our first 25 man with EPGP in place. Maybe we can get enough to really do a dent in Naxx… 😛

Oh.. and on a sad note, Resto4Life is shutting its doors.  No new posts will be gracing it’s hallowed pages after a final post in March. We’ll miss you Phae! Good luck in the future in everything.

Split 10s

So, for the last 2 nights, we’ve been doing Naxx-10. We didn’t get enough peeps on Wednesday night to go back to Naxx-25, so we had an impromptu Raid Leader meeting and split the available peeps up into two groups of 10. We aren’t, at this point, planning on running simultaneously, but we have them split as much as possible to allow for that in the future.

I was in the group for Wed-Thur+ and we did alright Wed until Grobbulus, where we had a lot of problems. It was getting to the ending time by then, so we called it a night with him still alive.

The next night we went back and, after many more wipes, finally got him down. Now, we have gotten him down before, it just was a string of unfortunate incidents all around. Gluth and Thaddius went down in one shot and we were on our way to the Military Quarter.

WoWScrnShot_021909_223921 Raz went down, the Live/Dead boss went down after a wipe due to a funny incident… So.. WARNING! WARNING!  Do not put vigilance on someone on the other side!!! WARNING! WARNING!  You will cause mobs to cross the gate and attack you.. The dead side Warrior tank put vigilance on the live side Mage.. Guess what??? We got mobs coming over to the dead side.. Whom we killed and then got them again on the dead side when they were dead.. BAH! In the end we were overwhelmed and failed. 

We also figured out something that makes the fight REALLY easy (especially for the live side).  Vigilance on the healer.. If you have a warrior tank (on either side) have them put their vigilance on the healer on their side (that is important.. See above!). Since healers are constantly causing aggro with their heals and tend to pull aggro immediately when these guys show up.. This gives move aggro to the tank and makes the fight a cakewalk, pretty much.

WoWScrnShot_021909_224251 So, we then moved onto the four horsemen.. I was the designated in-back partner for the pally healer.  We were doing pretty well until I got outside the bacon radius.. OMG! Have to stay near the bacon!! Anyway.. I died and the raid wiped.. Second try I remained glued to the bacon.. (eww…) and we got them down….

That was it for the raiding night. The daily was Heroic VH, so I put together a quick group and we pounded it out pretty quickly. Then it was time for bed..

Anyway… That was my last couple of days.. Tonight we are going to finish Naxx hopefully, but the second group gets going tonight and I can help on Fim if need be. Otherwise, we might just run some Heroics or do some questing.. Also, TNB #35 is up and available! Go listen!
