Where’s The Dress?

Some of you may not be aware, but my good friends over at For The Horde have started blogging again. Most of them are all back in the game for the MoP launch and having fun catching up on what they’ve missed throughout most of Cata. I’ve kept in touch with them all through e-mail since I joined them all on Dawnbringer way back when. So when Pie sent a group e-mail last week about wanting to run an ICC on Saturday night, I excitedly volunteered, and went right over to my SR friends to spread the word.

Come raid time we had Pie on his paladin to tank, Fikkle on his dps warrior, Sy on his hunter, Duke on his mage, and Nim on his priest. Add in me on Van, plus Slice and Lyss on their mains, and you have a pretty kickass group to storm the citadel.

Here’s some action after we moved into the Upper Spire.

I swapped back and forth between dps and healing as needed. That was interesting, considering I hadn’t even touched ret since the patch. I had this big gaping hole in my bar where Holy Wrath used to be. I eventually (like after three bosses >.> ) discovered that I had Hammer of the Righteous to place in the spot, but it doesn’t really help the emptiness in the rotation since it shares a CD with Crusader Strike. I guess it’s for using instead of that for AoE? Makes sense, since Divine Storm now requires Holy Power. *grumble* THAT change I do not like. Hopefully I will get some new ability later on that will smooth out the rotation. Someday I will look up some ret stuff … maybe. :p

Swapping back and forth between specs removes your current aura. So yes, that is why I don’t have one turned on in this screenshot. Wut? I was just doing my best Fayle impersonation .. you know, living down to expectations and whatnot.

Some of the group hadn’t seen all of ICC before. Heck, some may not have ever been there. So it was nice having Lyss there. She gave awesome little pre-fight rundowns on the bosses for us. All in all it went very smoothly. We did have a fun little pile of ice blocks chained together on Sindy … that was pretty amusing but not fatal.

I think we only had one wipe, and that was when we didn’t all get back on the platform on time during a phase transition on Lich King. THAT fight is still long and complicated if you haven’t done it a lot of times. This here was our second wipe …

Of course everyone had been warned ahead of time not to release, so Sy couldn’t resist making jokes about having released and not being able to find his way back. /facepalm

I had a great time that night, and I hope everyone else did too! Thanks again to Lyss and Slice for coming along and helping out. πŸ˜€

    The tank trades the ability to see anything else that is going on for not having to worry much about the other things going on. Staring at the midsection of bosses is boring, but necessary work.

    Thanks to the folks from SR for joining us and taking down the Lich King. Apparently, all you folks who raided and killed him way back when…didn’t do it right. He’s dead now for sure.

    And I knew things were going to happen, Lyssi spoiled us πŸ˜‰ but when it happened I thought I did something wrong.

    That was truly a blast! I may be leveling up a toon with SR once the expansion hits… If they’ll have me… After all, I am a goofy one.

    Goofy is a requirement in SR.

  4. koalabear21 Says:

    You are totally welcome in SR! πŸ™‚

    Sorry for spoiling the fight for you!!! >.>

    Just whisper me and I will get you invited in. If I’m not on let Rep know, she knows how to get in touch with me to get you an invite.

    No worries on the spoiler. It freaked me out, so I am glad you mentioned something. Had I spent anytime looking at kill videos I would have known it already, but moving a couple of fridges all day nixxed that idea.

    Someone booted my Forthepie DK out of SR, he’s sad. Of course, He’s only over there to hold the name. If Blizz ever solves the account wide heirlooms 1) I’ll be mad because I already have a pair of Arcanite Reapers and at least 2 pair of the daggers and 2) I can actually join other servers.

    As I told the other guys, if we weren’t doing horde on WH, I’d be rolling in SR.

    You know … as we noticed on Saturday night … Drak and Winterhoof seem to be in the same x-realm zone grouping … so we should be able to all hang out in Dalaran together without any server movements.

    “I excitedly volunteered, and went right over to my SR friends to spread the word.” must a got lost in the mail /cry

    yes i know technically im not in SR πŸ™‚

  8. repgrind Says:

    Awww. Next time I’ll let you know. Sorry!

  9. slice213 Says:

    Pie…you can lyss for that! She is a boot crazed warlock!

  10. koalabear21 Says:

    He can “lyss” for that? /sigh Engrish

    BTW I was not the one who booted Pie. I knew it was him and wouldn’t have booted him.

    From what I remember, he left Pie OUT of SR to sign charters and make gold. So I don’t think that toon was ever in SR.

  11. forthepie Says:

    It’s prossible (shout out to Engrish) that I was never in SR. I should have at least on in there though..just for GP. Perhaps I’ll roll up a belf warlock/paladin hyrbrid. eww belf…no.

  12. repgrind Says:

    I think it’s in the guild charter that you must have at least one belf to be in the guild. πŸ˜‰

  13. forthepie Says:

    I cannot roll a belf…I am allergic to them.
