Some Good News

Some Good News

After one crappy RNG week after another, I finally ran into some good luck tonight. Ji-Kun dropped the leg tier token I so desperately needed – and won – to get my four-set bonus back… …and I also won Band of the Scaled Tyrant and Caustic Spike Bracers, though I’m rather iffy about the latter missing one secondary stat. Oh well, I could still use it for my tanking off-spec, I guess. Then there’s the surprise achievement of the night,…

And Won Gold Yet Again

And Won Gold Yet Again

Yeah, RNG still hates me but at least I got a new cheesy achievement. Hooray to another 10 points! (Click to see actual size) And another Lei Shen kill. Our friendly druid healer had won the shoulder token earlier from Iron Qon and offered to give it to me but I declined. She deserved it, after all. I’m glad she won it instead of the other DK who gets on my nerves a lot. Oh nobody evil like that Ducelet,…

Throne of Thunder: 12/12 At Last

Throne of Thunder: 12/12 At Last

God, what a night! Downed Iron Quon, Twin Consorts and da man hisself, Lei Shen, within a 2 and a half hour period. Not bad for peeps who have never done the last three bosses on normal before. (Click to see actual size) Well done, Team Madness. After all the frustrations, the break-ups, the guild politics and the painful rebuilding, we can now relax and give ourselves a pat on the back. Looking forward to Patch 5.4!

First Primordius Kill

First Primordius Kill

And another boss down.  #oneshot #zerg (Click to see actual size) Not to mention another cheesy achievement for 10 points! We’re getting our groove back. I hope I didn’t just jinx myself. /think positive thoughts

First Durumu Kill

First Durumu Kill

So….after a frustrating period of cancellations and other real life shit, we finally got our group together for our first Durumu kill tonight: (Click to see actual size) *tears of joy And….yet another Mogu Rune of Fate wasted on token gold. Whoopee. But hey, at least I got tanking boots — Treads of the Blind Eye. Peeps are insistent I build a tank set and try tanking so the other Death Knight in the group can take a break from…

At the Mercy of No-Shows

At the Mercy of No-Shows

Shit always happen when Mercury is in retrograde. You can’t get everything on your list done because this is the period when many things go awry: gadgets break, things move slower, and people become dumber. If you want specifics, here’s a list from the Llewellyn Journal on the subject: WHAT TO EXPECT  – Angrier people  – Crazy drivers  – More accidents  – Miscommunication  – Quarrels  – Computer problems and breakdowns  – Delays  – More mistakes  – Slow mail  – Games…

First Ji-Kun Kill

First Ji-Kun Kill

We got our first Ji-Kun kill tonight and boy, what a crazy fight! (Click to see actual size) I had a lot of fun doing nest duty and my Raid Leader was such a pro guide. The only bummer was that I had used my last Mogu Rune of Fate only to win gold. Sigh. With Ji-Kun dead, it’s on to the next cockblock: Durumu. /shudder

Not a Bad First Week on My New Server

Not a Bad First Week on My New Server

I hope I’m not jinxing myself when I say that I have no regrets transferring to this realm and that I’ve accomplished more in my new home than I have in the few months I was on Whisperwind. For starters, the six of us who left Whisperwind plus four people from our Stormrage guild downed Horridon and Council of Elders with ease, something that eluded us in the recent past no thanks to some individuals who couldn’t push more than…

Describing Mario

Describing Mario

While in a Throne of Thunder raid (and very aptly during the Tortos fight whose mechanic requires a turtle punter à la Mario and Luigi)… …someone on general chat posted a description of Mario that has forever changed the way I view the beloved Nintendo character.

Council of Elders Down

Council of Elders Down

Well, I got invited back to the team’s progression night, and tonight we downed Council of Elders! (Click to see actual size) Thank you for the privilege of raiding with you guys. I don’t mind being sub/back-up for now; I know that being a fairly new member I still have to pay my dues and prove myself more. I’m just happy to be learning from the best!

Horrible Horridon and My New Trinket

Horrible Horridon and My New Trinket

What a horrible fight! (Click to see actual size) I got into a Throne of Thunder guild raid this evening, something I didn’t expect to happen since I’m not really part of the team’s regular roster, plus I knew the Raid Leader was extremely picky when it came to taking in substitutes, but I guess I passed muster in his eyes. I swore to myself not to commit the same dreadful mistakes I made last week on Horridon (*cough sand…

Throne of Thunderf*ck and How I Got My Karmic Comeuppance

Throne of Thunderf*ck and How I Got My Karmic Comeuppance

I remember the early days of LFR-Dragon Soul. Those were clueless and chaotic times when even trash pulls spelled instant death, and people cussed each other in ways that would make a sailor blush. Blizzard must have felt our trauma back then because in MoP, they gave us a kinder, gentler LFR in Tier 14 where most mechanics could be ignored by 25 people and you could earn Valor Points without blowing a gasket, literally or figuratively. But with the…
