Mythos cleared Naxx 10 last night! That’s the good news.. The bad? I wasn’t there.. Just happened that the last night of the raid was the first night we had guests staying with us. They will be here for 2 weeks. Since they don’t seem to go to sleep early, looks like I won’t be raiding until the holidays are over.
So, anyway. I logged in late and started working on Fhuun. He’s level 72 and moving along finishing up Borean Tundra.. Currently on the animal lover quests (whatever that acronym is.. I’m too lazy to look it up). I also respecced him Shadow near the end of the questing time last night. Killed a few things, finished up some more quests as Shadow. Still not sure what I am doing though. Haven’t been shadow for a LONG time.
When the raid finished up I was asked to join a group to do Heroic Old Kingdom. “Sure”, I said and switched to Fim. We did pretty well. There is a quest you can get outside the instance that requires you pick up a corpse of some spider dude and drop it on the brazier after the last boss.. You have 1 hour to complete the quest from picking up the corpse.
We skipped the first and third boss and killed the 2nd pretty easily and even the 4th easily. We did lose both mages (warrior, 2mages, 1 hunter, 1 priest) to the final fight, but the three left picked it up and we oneshot him too. We then went back and took out the other bosses including the heroic only one (took us two tries for that one).
Anyway, tonight is scheduled an Obsidian Sanctuary run, but I don’t think I am going to be able to make it in time. I guess we’ll just have to see.. Maybe I can get with pil and kezz and get back to leveling the drood. Ok.. I’m outta here!
Weekend is over and it’s back to work.. Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish readers (today is the first day.. ). So.. what happened in the WoW this weekend? Well, I suppose you want me to tell you, eh?
Mythos went back into Naxx and cleared the 4 wings!!!! Took us quite a few tries on a few bosses and we made it by the skin of our teeth (virtual teeth?) quite a few times (more than I care to remember). There were some pretty fun fights once you got the hang of it and we did pretty awesome on Gluth once we figured it out (did I get teh ugly dogs name right?).
We one shot the last boss in the construct wing. I would say that the fight was patterned after the dude in Mechanar, but didn’t this raid come first??? Anyway, so Friday we did that and then tried out the big frostwyrm a couple of times. Only 1 tank had frost resist gear and nobody else in the raid had any. So, we had a few problems (given that we aren’t one of those groups that is just walking though this place) and ended up calling it and postponing our victory until Monday (Whoa! That’s tonight).
The weekend was a no-raid weekend (finally, a break). I spent some time on Fhuun (and got him to 72) and some time on Fizz (my mage) and got him to 65 finally! I picked up Grand Master Inscription and now I can resume the level-up of inscription again. My professions are doing pretty well still. I need to get my herbalist up a few more levels so farming in some of the more dangerous zones isn’t so… dangerous..
I also spent time (and way too much money) crafting a couple of frost resist pieces for Fimlys and on Sunday night we ran a few (3 i think) heroics. Part of that was an Heroic Violet Hold run at the end of which I picked up really nice pair of Gloves! Woot! Anyway, We finished 2 heroics that I hadn’t finished yet, Gun’drak and Drak’Tharon Keep. They weren’t horrible, but we wiped on the T-Rex too many times to count (tried to do the achievement a few times first).
Anyway, tonight we are supposed to go kill the frostwyrm and Kel’Thuzad supposedly. We’ll see how it goes! Later all.
Back we went and headed into the, uh, plague quarter? It’s the one with the dancing boss.. Whichever that is.. (I love that fight btw.. I survived until the end on all of them.. Guess I can dance gooot!). We got through all those and even 1-shot Loatheb (the one with an insane number of hit points and healing that only works 3 seconds at a time). We then one-shot Patchwerk in the construct wing and then killed Instructor Razuvious in the military section.
We did pretty well, all things considered. These were all bosses we had gotten down, but some of the people in the raid hadn’t seen them before. Nothing all that interesting dropped for me (hunter lootz) until the last boss we hit, Razuvious… He dropped one of the two things I was looking at in his loot tables, the Accursed Bow of the Elite (I have dubbed thee “BatBow”). Being the only hunter there, I won it.
It has a little less AP than the crossbow I had (from heroic UK) but has some +hit and other stats are improved too. I want to pick up one of the crit scopes for it I think. After the run, I bit the bullet and bought the mats to make the Giantmaim LW items: Giantmaim Legguards and Giantmaim Bracers. Did the LW enchants I can do on them and I’m good to go. I waited on the cloak I can make since the mats for that were much more expensive. I happened to have the 2 frozen orbs for the Giantmaim stuff already.
So, anyway, I’m lookin pretty spiffy in my new gear. We’ll see how it performs tonight when we go back into Naxx for more! Ha.. Later all!
