Ragnaros Down! Plus I Got a Present for Someone Else’s Birthday!

Ragnaros Down! Plus I Got a Present for Someone Else’s Birthday!

We finally downed Ragnaros and this time we had the entire A Team for the kill. Whew! Good job to the core people of the progression raid: Kestrin, Kyu, Kamigurucrit, Xerzes, Dakirely, Marrok, Ulthar, Duzen, Tyoz and me. (Click to see actual size) Grats to the following people on the Ragnaros loot: Marrok – Arathar, the Eye of Flame Dakirely – Sho’ravon, Greatstaff of Annihilation Tyoz – Helm of the Fiery Protector The last few weeks were unkind to us,…

Someone Forgot to Switch to the Right Spec

Someone Forgot to Switch to the Right Spec

It’s funny when a DPS forgets to switch from his PvP spec to his PvE spec in Firelands. It’s tragic when your healer forgets to switch from DPS spec to healing spec before the Ragnaros pull. (Click to see actual size) (Poor Ulthar. Such an undignified, awkward death pose.) You know who you are. Don’t. Do. That. Again. Please.

Taking Good Care of My Hunter

Taking Good Care of My Hunter

My hunter (the former Anhur) got dragged into a 25-man Firelands run, which turned into a little loot fest for him, erm I mean, her. (Cripes, I really should get used to my hunter’s new gender!) Here’s what the Loot Piñata Gods blessed my neglected toon: Lava Bolt Crossbow Flickering Shoulders of the Windstorm Sleek Flamewrath Cloak (finally hit Friendly with Avengers of Hyjal) She’s now 6/7 in Firelands but has zero boss kills in Tier 11 dungeons, go figure….

Firelands: Three Bosses Down and a New Helm

Firelands: Three Bosses Down and a New Helm

Our little guild downed Alysrazor, Baleroc and Majordomo Staghelm! (Click to see actual size) And the best part of the raid: I finally got rid of my FUGLY helm from Zul’Gurub…. …and replaced it with Greathelm of the Voracious Maw! Grats to the following people on their respective loot: Duzen – Smoldering Censer of Purity Dakirely – Mantle of Closed Doors Marrok – The Hungerer Xerzes – Helm of Blazing Glory Kestrin – Wings of Flame

Skullstealer Greataxe!

Skullstealer Greataxe!

WOOT! Shannox dropped the Skullstealer Greataxe and I won the roll on it! (Love what the art department did with this weapon!) And rather than redistributing my Frost talent points to fit my new 2-hander, I kept my Dual Wield Frost build and unlearned my Unholy tree. From there, I made a new 2H tree. I know DW Frost is still the way to go but since a certain someone *cough Bloodsoe cough* won’t buy me two Obsidium Cleavers, I…

Back on Exodar: Beth’tilac and Lord Rhyolith Down

Back on Exodar: Beth’tilac and Lord Rhyolith Down

I’m proud of my little guild on Exodar. Our progression, though slow, has been steady. I’m glad to be with mature people who don’t subscribe to the belief that “bigger is better”, and are averse to the idea of recruiting any Tom, Dick and Harry who only want in to enjoy the guild perks. Sure, this decision may cost us in terms of not having enough people to sub for our tanks (we have plenty of DPS and heals, but…

My Hunter’s Baptism of Fire: 4 Firelands Bosses Downed

My Hunter’s Baptism of Fire: 4 Firelands Bosses Downed

My troll hunter formerly known as Anhur and now a female draenei hunter happily ensconced in my friend Natsu’s server got thrown into the lion’s den in Firelands. Just to clarify, I thought it was going to be more of a guild trash run with an attempt at Shannox and possibly even Beth’tilac. My hunter hasn’t even been inside any of the Tier 11 dungeons, and since my RDPS skills were still rusty, I merely wanted to “break in” my…

Back to Nerflands, I mean, Firelands

Back to Nerflands, I mean, Firelands

After a blah few weeks that saw me working more and playing less, I got to raid again. Our raid leader gathered the 10 best people to meet raid composition needs for Firelands. This time, it was a no-excuses affair. No more inconsiderate players going AFK every 10 minutes or so because the dog bit the visitor, Grandma was on fire, or the girlfriend wanted spur-of-the-moment kinky sex. No more carrying 7K DPS players whose only goal is to get…

When Shit Happens

When Shit Happens

I’ll let the images speak for themselves. Sigh. Hope they can restore it ASAP. Thanks to my guildies who all sent tickets as well. Ducelet says if it can’t be restored, they’ll buy me one from the AH. You guys really love me! /hug

Treasure Amongst the Trash

Treasure Amongst the Trash

I did my first Firelands run today. Trash run that is. (Click to see actual size) Someone in Blizzard got trigger-happy with the Add Trash button while working on this place. Trash here, trash there, trash everywhere. “We heard you like trash, so we put trash in your trash so you can aggro more trash while you go pull some trash.” At least that’s the impression I got. But hey trash in there drops epic BoEs, and one of them…
