Man of the Marks

Ok.. I’ve fallen in love with my Hunter again.. 🙂 I liked playing him before the patch, just didn’t need anything from anywhere really (well, not at the level we were at) and was just having more fun with the Boomkin.  Well, last night I dragged him into Gruuls and Mags.  Ugh.. I’m getting ahead of myself again…

First… I logged in (isn’t that how most good stories start?). I ran around on Fizz trying to get the parts for his Mote Extractor when I was whispered that we were possibly going to be going to Gruuls/Mags tonight. “Sure”, I replied.. Then a certain Divinely Guided soul whispered me from her alias on Draenor.

I chatted with Lin for a while until we were notified in no uncertain terms that the server was going down! Well, I guess that was better than it just going down… So.. I’ll go log to Feathermoon and hang with Lin and the Annas for a while… WHAT? FM is down too? Oh.. now I see what she was doing on my server.. 😛

WoWScrnShot_102108_232956 So, we picked another server and rolled some little Night Elves. I picked a warrior (no idea why, just felt like it) and she rolled a druid (of course).  We ran around the starting zone a while until Draenor was back up and we started gathering for the raid. I had created the toon on my other account so I continued to follow her around harassing her until we finally went into Gruuls (where I guess I had to start paying some attention).

Ok.. Back to where we started now, yes? So, I have to say I am impressed with the MM specced Hunter’s burst DPS. We now have many instant cast spells including Chimera Shot (which I am LOVING). In addition, the cool mechanics of everything really lend a sense of strategy to your rotations now. I also got back my silencing shot (which I have missed) and it correctly acts as an interrupt now (as far as I can tell).

WoWScrnShot_102108_235942 We had only 18 peeps in the raid (4 healers, 4 tanks, 10 dps) and on the Gruul fight, we pumped out around 10k raid dps.. I did figure out that I end up tanking Kiggler no matter if I am on my druid or not .. 😛 .. After Gruul we headed to Mags and after one wipe do to a bad beginning, we pull ‘em down without any issues. I ended up walking away with nothing but the badges and Earthen Signet (from Gruul) for my troubles, but that was enough.

It was getting late when we finished, but I logged in my Shaman/Lock duo anyway to try to get them moving past 52.  First thing actually, I logged my Warrior up with the Shaman and granted all the RAF levels I had been waiting on.  He is now up to 52 also. I have no idea how to play him of course, and his gear is like level 22 gear.. but.. It’s the principal of the thing.. LOL

I started collecting the quests for BRD and then I got a little tired so called it a night. Tonight we have an SSC raid scheduled. I’m not sure whether I’ll ask to bring Fyra or Fimlys tonight.. I suppose I could also bring Fhuun for some extra heals… I guess we’ll have to see.

Into the Void

As the title indicates, we headed into TK last night. I originally asked to bring Fimlys (you remember, my hunter…) but we were short on healers, so I offered to switch to Fhuun.  Of course, Fhuun is specced holy buff-bot so everyone else (2 druids, 1 CoH priest, 1 Resto Shaman) got off their heals well before I did during the trash.

I spent some time DPSing and just trying to renew anything in sight (since every time I cast even flash heal I was overhealing..)  I admit some fights I was useful, but that was because the other healers died .. LOL

WoWScrnShot_102008_225748 Anyway.. to the main point.  We head into Loot Reaver’s room.. Clear it out without too much incident (other than a particular melee shaman enjoying spending time on the floor) and then get ready for the boss.  The RL reads up on some strats and we finally give it a go…  About 2 minutes into the fight (maybe less) everyone stops moving… “Uh oh”.. “Oh no”.. “Oh Crap…” is heard on vent so we know that everyone is experiencing the same thing…

POOF..  Draenor is Voided.  Doesn’t even show up on the list of servers at all anymore..  AGHHH! WoWScrnShot_102008_215112Maybe we Should have started with A’lar.. LOL.. The server was down for a few hours and when I finally got back in at around 11pm server time (pacific), all I had time to do was my Inscription Research stuff, make a scroll and some ink for Jess, and decide that I was too tired to do anything else.

So, basically I ended up watching TV most of the night.. 😛

Oh! When I got back in and was screwing around clearing out and organizing my bank on Fizz, a fan (yeah yeah.. I have 1 or 2 I guess..) whispered me that they liked the blog! Woot! Thanks! Sometimes it feels like you write in a vacuum and then you get these great little boosts. So, thank you! You know who you are and I really appreciate it.

WoWScrnShot_102008_221520 And even more OH!… Episode 21 of the Twisted Nether Blogcast is out and about, cheesing up the joint.. You should go listen if for no other reason than Kaliope is awesomely cool.

Tonight, nothing is planned. I don’t know if we are going to try out TK again or not. If not, maybe I can get someone to run my little guys around BRD… Haven’t done HH event yet either.. Could try that too. I was having run running my Shamlock around getting candy.. Maybe I’ll do that more.. 😛

While He Loots His Pants..

As a couple others of my guild have mentioned, we had a pretty great weekend.  Boss nerfs and Class buffs non-withstanding. We moved into SSC and cleared all but Vazsh (sp?). We wiped out Gruul and Mags. We even went back and took out AQ20 with about 12 people. And, to top it off, on Sunday night we blasted through Z’A, got 3 chests and wiped the instance clear!

Yeah yeah.. They nerfed the bosses, we know. But I still think it is a pretty nice achievement. I know I am proud of it. Tonight we’re heading into TK and I’m hoping to bring along Fimlys this time to try out his new MM spec. If it works pretty well, maybe I’ll post it.. Then again, maybe not.. 😀

Have a good one!
