Raid Rehash and Reflections

Raid Rehash and Reflections

Normally I would rejoice over a boss kill and blog about it ASAP, especially one that had eluded me for the longest time for sundry frustrating reasons, but the death of my friend silenced me into a respite and period of mourning the last several days. Now that I’ve found the strength to move on, it’s time to get back to posting and look back at the craziness that was Heroic Dragon Soul. Heroic mode had always seemed unreachable to…

Slow But Steady: Heroic Yor’sahj the Unsleeping

Slow But Steady: Heroic Yor’sahj the Unsleeping

‘Twas a decent practice run with my new guild. We tested our mettle last night on Heroic Yor’sahj the Unsleeping and it took only three attempts to down him. Not bad for a young raid group that has a few peeps still in Raid Finder gear. (Click to see actual size) Speaking of raids and all things Dragon Soul, I had a chat with a buddy whom I hadn’t seen online in a while. He said he finally got Destroyer’s…

Heroic Ultraxion Plus Gurthalak for PvP?

Heroic Ultraxion Plus Gurthalak for PvP?

We resumed our Dragon Soul practice run last night and downed Heroic Ultraxion. And did the rest of the bosses on normal mode. Deathwing dropped Gurthalak, Voice of the Deeps, and since no one wanted it, I took it for myself. I have a mind to use it as a PvP weapon (my offspec is Unholy PvP), as I recall someone telling me I’d be better off PvPing with a Gurthalak than the Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Greatsword. But is it worth…

Back in The Swing of Things: Some New Gear At Last!

Back in The Swing of Things: Some New Gear At Last!

I had a horrible day today. I won’t go into the details, but suffice to say it was the shitty icing on an already bad cake. Good thing my knight in shining armor was there to hand me Kleenex for my tears and snot (well, not literally, but it’s nice to know there’s someone who deeply cares for me). And good thing I had a raid tonight to keep my mind off the negativity. It was my first raid with…

I was so busy the last few days that I didn’t log on any of my toons. Surprising myself again, I didn’t give a damn. If I hadn’t signed up for tonight’s Dragon Soul raid with my new guild, I wouldn’t have bothered logging in at all. I’d rather curl up in bed with my Nook. Yup, that’s right, I joined a guild in my new server. I saw one of their raid leaders recruiting on Trade for more peeps…

Back to Dragon Soul

Back to Dragon Soul

Our core group returned to Dragon Soul for more Valor Points, tier tokens and Elementium Gem Clusters. We 9-manned Morchok and Yor’sahj the Unsleeping while waiting for one of our members to get online. You know your team is well geared AND skilled if you could 9-man DS bosses and still come close to beating your record kill by mere seconds. I only wanted one thing from that run – the Chest of the Corrupted Vanquisher so I could wear…

No Regrets Starting From Scratch

No Regrets Starting From Scratch

I was a bit unhappy at first that we weren’t extending the Dragon Soul lockout, but now I’m glad we did. ‘Cause I won two tier tokens tonight and got my Necrotic Boneplate Pauldrons and Necrotic Boneplate Helmet! Hooray, that’s two Raid Finder pieces taken out of my set…and disenchanted. Now all that’s left to get rid of is the Raid Finder Necrotic Boneplate Greaves! I’m a happy Death Knight!  😀

Deathwing Will Just Have to Wait

Deathwing Will Just Have to Wait

Warmaster Blackhorn downed again. He ain’t a piece of cake when you have only ONE ranged DPS in the raid and the drakes keep snapping from their tethers.  >.< (Click to see actual size) And then came the debate on whether to extend the lockout or not.Frankly, I am sick of farming Morchok and company but we have a rogue in the progression group who needs his Elementium Gem Clusters. Not to mention I still have to get rid of…

Done With Raid Finder and Sundry Musings

Done With Raid Finder and Sundry Musings

I’m done with Dragon Soul via Raid Finder. At least on my Death Knight. My current gear is a mishmash of 397s and 384s which I would like to upgrade to all of the former. The only time you’ll see me there is to accompany friends, but after all I’ve been through in that Godforsaken place, I’d like to avoid DS – Looking for Raid, also known as Looking for Rez, as much as possible. My little guild and I…

No, I’m Not Rolling For You

No, I’m Not Rolling For You

To all the random Loot Whore Strangers in Raid Finder, You are my newest pet peeve. You never fail to disgust me each time you roll need on something you already have, win it and use it as a bargaining chip to get the loot you want should it drop on the next boss. Or, just before the boss pull, you tell me to roll for you on that weapon you really, really, really want. To think we don’t even…

Meet My New Toy

Meet My New Toy

I won Experimental Specimen Slicer in our all-guild Dragon Soul raid. It’s such a gorgeous weapon, I’m tempted to go back to Unholy! Now what to do with Gurthalak, Voice of the Deeps which is just gathering dust in my Void Storage. To DE or not to DE, that is the question.
