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.

Juggs Deactivated

April 8, 2014

So … Iron Juggernaut. The damage on this fight on heroic is just stupid. I mean seriously stupid. Everything hits for 200-300k, and some of it is random damage that can’t be avoided. If you get hit by more than one thing at a time, you’re done for. I was one of the first to die on every. single. pull. Except this one …

To deal with the incredible amount of damage, we … gosh, I’m almost embarrassed to admit this, but apparently it’s a strategy that has worked for other raids, and hey, he’s dead so … yes, we 4 healed it. I don’t think we would have gotten through it without the extra cooldowns.

In other news … they finally got me. I don’t know why I even bothered to resist, it was inevitable. After raid I always stay in vent and chat. Kash and the tanks were all playing D3 together while I did quests in the Storm Peaks on Giska. They were having so much fun! So I figured, you know, I don’t have to buy the xpac to check out the loot changes. So I logged on. The witch doctor went out and promptly died to the first pack of mobs she saw. Yeah. But I decided the barbarian deserved a chance, too, so I dusted him off as well. The first two mobs he killed dropped upgrades! He is level 35 and was actually on the final quest, so he ended up killing Diablo and getting two legendary drops. Yeah … let’s just say Van logged on to collect his treasure goblin pet before I went to bed.

I blame Lyss! She told me the Crusader is voiced by the same actor as Lor’themar. She tempted me! Evil warlock, you just can’t trust them! :p

8 Down, 3 to go

March 17, 2014

Alright, got my 8th class to max this weekend. I had transferred Adryen over at level 87. Dumb? Perhaps, I mean, monks are easy enough to level and he had no professions. Or rather, he has two gathering professions that he didn’t pick up until he reached Pandaria, so … yeah. But I like him. And I get attached to my characters. So … here he is!

I sent him as many Timeless Isle pieces as I could. Or at least, as many as I had in Oranis’ bank. Hmmmm …. remind me to check Wega’s bank for stuff I stored on that server.
So far, I like the look of the leather gear. I’m curious now to see how it will look on Huna! She made it almost to 87 over the weekend. Balance is teh fun.

Ok, that leaves druid, rogue and shaman …. go!

All Caught Up

February 27, 2014

Tuesday night we went in and knocked off the first three bosses on heroic. The guild had killed them all before, but we hadn’t yet downed Protectors since I joined. Now that we have, I am caught up to the rest of the guild on progression.

It wasn’t pretty but hey, a kill is a kill. The most amusing part? The three of us still standing are the three who needed the achievement. Ha!

We put some good work in on Heroic Sha, too. Our best attempt had him at 9% when he enraged. Ok, he was at 11% when the rest of us died, Schriko knocked another 2% off before eating the floor. This fight, oh boy, it really makes me appreciate the mostly-stacked strategy of normal because I rarely get to stand still. We’ve got the mechanics though, we just need to fine tune.
