Nazgrim Defeated

April 22, 2014

After Juggernaut, we skipped ahead to General Nazgrim. We started out 3 healing it, but once we got the new mechanics and positioning down, people were mostly only dying to things they should be moving out of, so I switched to ret. Sometimes having things die faster is the answer. It only took a few pulls after that to get him.

Yes, I watched the last part of the fight from the floor. No, I didn’t stand in stuff … adds killed me. :p

I assume we are going back and doing Dark Shaman next. We practiced the 3 tank method last night in preparation. We generally just tank them together and deal with all of the mechanics, but that makes the fight seriously harder on heroic.

Nine

That’s right, only two more classes to go.

Hunie became the ninth class to max level on Saturday, dinging in the Dread Wastes as all of my characters do.

I know I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. Maybe it’s just me having a natural feel for the spec, I don’t know, but I’ve found balance druid to be very durable. Scrapes that would have killed any of my other non-plate characters, she comes out of, bleeding but alive.

That being said, she didn’t really try to take on anything serious on the Timeless Isle, although she did go and complete the introductory quests there.

The cannonballs from Dread Ship Vazuvius will still kill you even if you do nothing but run circles around the ship casting moonfire, FYI.

The other two aren’t far behind. Vozzkaz visited Zouchin Province yesterday and is ready to move on to Townlong Steppes. Ales didn’t get as far, but he did get through some of Kun-Lai and set his hearth at the Shrine. He also had more fun with his Glyph of Disguise.

That’s all for today. Happy Dyngus Day!

Sulfuras

April 17, 2014

Tuesday I finally got the last Blood of the Mountain that I needed to craft the Sulfuron Hammer. This weapon, combined with the legendary item Eye of Sulfuras that drops off Ragnaros in Molten Core, forms the legendary 2H mace Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros.

I sent the blood over to Kirgra. She grabbed the rest of the mats out of her bank and headed to Blackrock Depths. The dark iron can only be smelted at the Black Forge, and the hammer itself can only be crafted at the Black Anvil.

Once the Sulfuron Hammer was crafted, she mailed it off to Van. All he had to do once it was in his inventory was click on the Eye of Sulfuras.

And of course, we must have a couple of shots showing it off.

Hm, kinda dark in there. Go outside!

As You Command

April 15, 2014

Well, I made the mistake had the honour of reading our dear Warchief’s Liebster Award post, wherein he commanded everyone who read it to answer his questions. Therefore, I deemed it appropriate to follow his instructions. I do like my hair and it would get terribly messed up if he were to decapitate me.

1. Do you write a blog? Link it here if so!

If you are reading this, you know the answer to that question. Reputation Grind

2. What was the first Azerothian blog you ever read? Was there an early memorable post that hooked you?

Someone else mentioned Big Red Kitty, which was definitely one of my first and most favorite blogs to read. But the one that got me started on blogging was called Critical QQ, written by a clever and very entertaining troll mage by the name of Euripedes. To this day, my hunter Junahu’s precious Loque’nahak carries the name Euripedes in his honour.

3. Recommended reading, part one! Link and endorse three bloggers that you’d encourage your fellow readers and minions should check out.

Well, many readers probably know these, but that’s ok.
That Was An Accident!
Tome of the Ancient
WoW Misadventures

4. Recommended reading, part two — link one single post, from wherever, that makes you think “OMG, people HAVE to read this.”

It hasn’t been written yet. Someone has been slacking on the character profiles. Fortunately, it’s not really possible for Edwin to die before it gets done.

5. How long have you been reading the Command Board? What post or storyline was your jumping-on point?

I have been here from the beginning. At least, within the first two or three posts.

6. One more chance for shameless self-promotion: Are you on Twitter? Give yourself a non-Friday #FF here if so. Also feel free to recommend a few accounts worth following.

I have an account. I never log into it. 255 characters or whatever it is just is not enough for me. I prefer to use the blog for communication.

7. What class do you play on Earth Online? (Don’t try to deny that you play. I know my readers.)

Administrative Assistant.

8. What real-life ability to do you wish your Earth Online character could use?

I … can’t decide. Although … you know, my EO character DOES work at a zoo, so the hunter’s Tame Beast would be quite useful. She wouldn’t be allowed to just wander around with a large predator at her heels though, so maybe not. Teleport would probably be better.

9. Here, I’ll throw a bone to Utvoch. The age-old hoof question: Fem-taur or draenei girls?

Femtaur all the way! Go furry or go home.

10. Whose head would you rather have on a pike, Varian’s or Magatha’s?

Magatha’s. RIP Cairne :(

If the world were going to end (or change substantially) in, say, oh, six months or so, what would be your bucket list of things you’d want to get done first?

Would it be really strange if there really wasn’t anything? I hate having my routine thrown off, and that would seriously mess things up.

Ok Mr. Warchief, Sir, am I off the hook?
