Alliance Slice

As most of you who bother to come here already know, Analogue and Reversion were not able to raid this weekend, and neither was Logarithm. This left us without both of our tanks, our heal lead … and our raid leaders.ย For most groups, that would mean a week off. But not us!

Plan going into Friday night was for me and Grom to tank. Grom has been building a prot offset and has wanted to try it, so this offered up the perfect chance for it. That left two heal slots open since I normally heal, so we got Jhudora to come back and I asked Lore to come on his pally to take my spot. We filled Grom’s dps spot with a priest, Annaliese.

An hour before raid time, though, Lore got a call and had to go deal with a real life issue. Well obviously family > raid, and we did have Annaliese who happens to prefer disc healing over dps anyway, so she fit nicely into the healing team. But now we’re short a dps. Fortunately, Slice had transferred his mage over earlier in the day, so I wait anxiously for him to log on. When he does, I tell him “We need you to raid!” .. he’s like “sure, when?” … “um … now” … /invite Velineda

I didn’t even give him time to finish enchanting his stuff, but he did fine anyway. The raid went quite well, considering the personnel changes. Of course, we had Ado leading, which almost guarantees a smooth raid. Friday night we knocked off Magmaw, Omnitron, and Maloriak. I’ve now tanked both Maloriak and the adds. Most people will say that tanking theย  boss is the easier job, but … I think it depends a lot on your individual skillset. Interrupting the arcane storms and ONLY the arcane storms (we have a dps responsible for the add interrupts) is just as crucial to the fight as keeping the adds rounded up, so both jobs require staying focused.

We ended Friday night at Halfus but I think we were all tired by then because it didn’t go well. So we picked it up there on Saturday all fresh. It only took a couple of tries or so and we had him. Much much better. Twin dragons took awhile to learn, although I’m glad to have gotten alot of practice on it. The one other time I tried to tank it, we hadn’t seen much of it and Rev ended up tanking and having me bring in Karius. This time I knew the fight well, having killed it as ranged, melee, and heals, so I was prepared for proper dragon placement.

Once the dragons were finally down, we had only progression fights or Conclave of Wind left. So we went to Throne. That took, um … maybe three tries? Really, the group did great. So now we have almost a full hour left, and all of our farm content is down. Ado asks for suggestions and I’m quick to the punch … OS3D! I wants a dragon. People are of course given the option to opt out on that. So we end up going in with 8 people, and down him in …26s. I’m tempted to try that on 25man. Anyway, I actually got what I came for … thank Elune I rolled good on the one thing I could roll on all weekend. hehe!

BTW, rumors that Slice was the only one playing Alliance this weekend are completely false … I ran into this pretty little dwarf lock in Ironforge the other night …

    Lyssi and I caused some trouble in Goldshire with the 13 year old boys there. It was good for a laugh. And who doesn’t enjoy a nice ride on the sandbox Tiger. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well unless you have someone else to do the interupts. Then you can tank the boss while you play Angry Birds on your ipad ๐Ÿ˜€

    Wow, 3 shot on the council with a fresh tank is outstanding! And you made Grom try both roles on Maloriak. Sheesh, you guys don’t cut any slack do you ;D

    Raid 1 only got 4 last night with all the usual people. Even the ‘farm’ bosses can bite you hard if you slack at all. We too way way to long on Atrimedies and then failed enough on Mal to run out of time. On the happy side, Reversion was not saved so I brought her in on omnomnomatron and got my shoulders!

    My favorite was some moron asking me if I was really a midget when I was on my gnome.


  6. repgrind Says:

    Umm … no. Grom tanked the boss on Maloriak, I tanked the adds. I tanked the boss and you tanked the adds the last time Log was out. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I thought we only had two tries on the council. But it doesn’t really matter does it? We got them. I will say that overall, the weekend was fun! Yes, saturday was much better for me than friday, but I learned quite a bit both nights, and really did have a good time doing it. Even if I didn’t realize it at the time ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know our first try went pretty long, and then we had a quick wipe because of adds still up during the transition before we came back and killed them.

    […] you are aware, Slice transferred his mage to Rep’s server to help them with their raiding.ย  I had made a dorf lock over there a while back (and […]
