We’re #1

January 31, 2013

Heart of Fear. Amber Shaper Un’sok. Many deaths, mainly from missed interrupts, failure to exit constructs, or other various vehicle-related issues. In the final pull, I was transformed twice in phase 2. Miraculously, I managed to interrupt the Monstrosity, interrupt myself, AND spam 4 to gtfo before I ran out of willpower. Twice. Apparently, everyone else did too.


Everyone dead except me, Lyss, and the tanks? Yep sounds about right.


Left to right more or less: Liyhe, Lyssianna, um … I see Gurgie behind her so Adoe must be hiding back there somewhere, Sorak, Arvash, me (Vanicus), Zugzuug, Zarm in the back, Shadeey, and Wok.

Go us! First guild on the server to kill Un’sok. Moving on …

I did zero preparation for Grand Empress Shek’zeer. I had planned on it, but I got distracted. So I did a really quick strat study during our 5 minute break. See, I’m weird about this. I don’t do LFR. I might, now that we’ve cleared it. But I’m old and stubborn. I want to see the content for the first time with my guildies, the way it used to be.

First couple pulls Slice and I are all like, yeah this is easy. Ok well, phase one at least. We had issues keeping tanks alive when phase 2 started and they had to gather all the adds. We got that worked out though, and, on our 10th pull, we downed her.


I spent all of phase 3 praying for more mana, until I got feared twice in a row, ending up dead clear across the room from everyone. Wok got transformed in that phase and we had to kill him and rez him. Thank the Light no one else had died and been battle rezzed or that would have been a wipe!


Left to right sort of: Zarm in the back, Slice in front, Sorak, me (Vanicus), Arv, Arv’s pet, Zugzuug, Lyssianna, Wok, Adoe in front, and Shadeey clear off to the right.

These kills put us officially on top of our realm for progression. Of course, there’s always joking about how we are default leaders because everyone else left the server, but we’d be fourth on Winterhoof, so it’s not like we are the least sucky of the suck … we’re pretty good, guys! Really.

Only four more bosses stand between us and completion of the tier. We can do it!


Breaking Wind Lord Mel’jarak

January 24, 2013

Don’t ask me what we changed to make this happen. We did have to adjust which ones we CC’d in the beginning though. Too many menders out with only a single priest to mass dispel, and quickening would demolish our tanks. Combinations of attacks could easily take out a player quickly with no way to save them. For example, take this kill shot …


This was my second death of the fight. The first occurred when the Blademasters hit me with Kor’thik Strike right after a Rain of Blades when my health was already low. The second time was also during Rain of Blades … my health was low going into it because he had just tossed the Wind Bomb on me. Totally not a fan of Rain of Blades; everything else we have no problem healing through but dang that thing does a lot of damage, and to the entire raid. Blech.


Hey look, I think I got all 10 of us in the shot for once.

L to R: Zarm, Shadeey, Wok, Arvash on the pedestal with me in front of him, Lyssianna, Sorak, Zugzuug, Liyhe, and Adoe.

We are the first guild on our server to kill him. Go us!

Garalon Down

Can we ever just kill something new early in the night? First pull 9% … then we spent the rest of the night on it until the final pull of the night finally did the trick. It’s just so easy for one little wrong move to end it all. Then again, a lot of bosses are like that when you are right at the gear level to face them … no room for error. Once we get it though, it just gets easier each time. Heck, I even lived through the tornadoes on Tay’ak this week.


It’s probably a good thing we took all night though. I haven’t looked at any of the bosses past him, so I would have been clueless. This way, I can go in next week all prepared and stuff.


Left to right: Adoe, Slice (Liyhe) petting Gurgie, me, Zarm is in the back jumping up and down or something, Sorak standing behind Zug, half-nekkid Arv, and Lyss in disguise. I think Shadeey might be behind Adoe.

I like this picture better though … Zug with the infamous table throw.


Oh hey, you can see Shadeey in that one. 🙂

Checking out Heart of Fear

November 26, 2012

Yes, this is close to a week old. Holidays, ya know?

Anywho, we went last Tuesday and cleared our way to Elegon with no real hiccups, and spent some time working on him again. Then Wednesday, Arv was out, so rather than making Zug tank and banging our heads again, we headed to Heart of Fear instead and spent the better part of the night working on Imperial Vizier Zor’lok. It’s a fun, crazy fight with different abilities on each of 3 separate platforms, then all of the abilities at once in the final phase.

There was one pull where Bocat and I were the last two to be killed. Unfortunately, the actual kill turned out more like Bocat’s typical screenshots.

Oh well, at least we got him! The discs are a pain in that last phase combined with everything else, and some people were having bad lag that night which of course doesn’t help at all. And yes, if you look at that screenshot, you will see two interesting things … the actual Sorak (although he’s gone from Tauren to Goblin and now to Panda) and ZARM.

I’m kinda pissed at those two though. Bitches keep talking about their damn McRibs so I went to McDonald’s on Saturday and guess what? THEY DON’T HAVE THEM HERE. /rage
