Hellscream’s Downfall

October 29, 2014

So .. remember how I quit raiding? I did mention that, right? Part burnout, part desire to do other things on raid nights. Bowling league every other week on a raid night, polka club once a month on another raid night, and my favourite TV show during the last hour of the other raid night each week. Yeah, it means I still have things scheduled, it’s just a lot less time consuming than a 3 hour block, 3 nights a week, every week.

But, this doesn’t mean that I’m against coming in to help out when I’m available and they need me. I might have mentioned being pulled in to kill Mythic Siegecrafter a week or so ago. Well, last night they needed bodies for Mythic Garrosh. I almost went along Monday night but someone else logged on late who hasn’t quit, so I bowed out. But last night they needed me. We *almost* got him in one pull. It didn’t take all night though. Heck, we got him in time for my TV show so I didn’t have to watch it later On Demand.

I never saw an achievement show up, just the heirloom and the bonus roll. It shows up in my achievement pane, but never flashed up on the screen.

At first I was disappointed about getting an heirloom that I already have. But when I thought about it, I realized that nearly half of my max level characters (7/15) are strength-based plate wearers, so actually, that axe is the MOST useful thing I could have gotten.

Yeah, someone chopped him up into a pile of meat.

P.S. Why does Varian look so awesome and my humans look … like …. /cry

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

That was my reaction upon seeing Kerick on the character select screen. I mean really. He went from this:

To THIS:

I went straight to the barbershop but … nothing was right. Even the hair colours are different. And that hairstyle … I mean, it’s called ‘Fabulous’ not ‘Slept in an alley’ so why???? I found a face I could live with but the hair is not happening.

Even my Conan character, Yendrus, looks better than Kerick now.

Ok, there’s the bad. How about the good?

This one made me squee. New (old/original) main, perhaps?

She’s so adorable!

P.S. Yendrus is a nickname for Andrzej so yeah, just when you thought there was no Mount & Blade reference .. BAM! :D

and Victory

Thankfully, we did extend the raid and did not let Thok escape. We had one really frustrating wipe at less than 1% … we’re talking like 5M health left on the bad boy. But we got back up and kept trying until finally we had enough people alive long enough to get out of that fire phase and have enough dps left to get him down.

We’re skipping Blackfuse for now and moving on to Paragons so … off to study!

Wait. Here, let me zoom that in so you can get a better look at the misery.

Two blanking percent. TWO! The dang yeti managed to take out me, Kash, and I think one other person, so with two healers down … sigh. If only I had bubbled or hit lay on hands when I was in the air. I would have survived and perhaps kept others up long enough to get the kill. I swear, I really think I am too old and my reaction times are too slow to be counted on as a heroic raider. We should have had him down there. Stupid fight. RAWR.
