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!
