We didn’t have enough people to raid on Tuesday night. So several of us went and ran around the Timeless Isle together. Being in a group allowed us to get things done that I would not have been able to accomplish solo. Thanks to Arv’s legendary cloak and Expedition Yak, Lyss and I were able to fly over to the Sanctuary. Ty was with us too, and Adoe and Zerl each hung out for a little bit. We cleared all the Yaungol in the side courtyard and got our Blazing Chest. We killed all of teh things to complete Killing Time, although the Elder Great Turtle decided to kill us first. No one got any rare drops, but we all had a good time, and still got to play with guildies even though we couldn’t raid. Thanks for the idea, Lyss!
Last night we had our full group, and had lost a full night of raiding, so we really needed to make up for it and focus. We blew the first pull on Immerseus, which Zarm and I both admitted was our fault. But the next pull was fine, and we ended with most of the raid alive this time, unlike our infamous first kill with only a tank left standing. Soon we found ourselves in front of the Fallen Protectors. Last week we spent an entire night wiping on them. This week, we pulled them once …
How’s that for focus? Not even one dead raid member. (although we may have used a brez shhhhhhhh) You can tell from the victory photo how many of us have been playing on the Timeless Isle.

That left us almost the entire night to work on Norushen. Here’s a complete reversal of roles … I was explaining the fight. Given my previous aversion to LFR, I normally hadn’t seen the bosses until our guild was standing in front of them. This time, I knew the fight as well as anyone else and even better than some. It’s going to take some more pulls to fully get the mechanics and necessary dps smoothed out, but we made progress on him.
Great night, guys! Hope we have more like it next week. :)
