Yeah so let me back up a little here. Last night was our usual Dragon Soul run. Since we’re still doing normal to gear up all of our regulars and Arv has pretty much everything he needs, he brought his warrior. All night long, tank stuff would drop, Dizzee would get a nice high roll (even though he technically wasn’t rolling against anyone), and he would say “suck it Arv” because apparently he feels like he always has crappy rolls on his main. I half-heartedly rolled against him for the 2h mace off lootship, and mentioned in vent that I didn’t *really* want it because I’m kinda holding out for the sword off Madness. Didn’t matter, Dizzee rolled great.
Get to Madness and we make some pretty lousy attempts at it and are discussing calling it. Sorak is like, just one more pull guys, come on. Arv swapped back to the pally … he’d spent most of the night complaining about not having the same toolbox on the warrior anyway. Not sure if it was him being back on the more familiar toon, the infamous last pull of the night, or pure dumb luck, but we got a solid kill.
Aaaand the drops are … Maw of the Dragonlord, the awesome healing mace that Slice spent most of the raid being jealous of since I got it last kill … and my coveted Gurthalak, Voice of the Deeps, aka the Worm Sword.
I totally said “suck it Arv” in vent when I rolled that 99, too. I’d feel sorry for him, but his warrior, lock, and hunter ALL got weapons in Dragon Soul in the last week.
I put it on right away and took a screenshot still in my holy gear while I was collecting my gems of non-epicness from the vendor.
Oh yeah, I also sort of got two pieces of tier for my ret set. Great timing, since I obviously was going to have to change my mog anyway. I want to show this baby off, not hide it under another skin! I didn’t quite have what I want lying around, and of course there was none of the set I’m eyeballing on the AH, so I had to make do with this for now. It’s not terrible, other than not having boots of the right color.
We’re doing Firelands tonight since DS is clear, and I think I have them talked into letting me try dps. So I started gemming and enchanting the stuff but had to go to bed before I was finished. I guess I better refresh my reading on ret priorities so I at least have something resembling the correct reforges. I’m looking forward to creating a whole bunch of these! …
One more thing … super big grats to my two favorite trolls, Stunnah and Zarigar, on their Destroyer’s End titles! Why didn’t anyone make fun of Zari for getting the title on his alt? You’re slacking bigtime, Sorak!
