We had these done before the guild meet up, but you know I felt that post took precendence.
Friday night I didn’t happen to log onto my mage and see the mail from Owl (exray) advising we were doing CM’s on Friday night at 9pm. So I was quietly watching some TV and I got an SMS about it from Navimie and boy did I jump online fast!
The usual suspects attended, me, Aza, Nav, Owl and Crooked made up the group and we headed into Scholomance first. Aza getting excited in the background! I couldn’t get a ninja pick with Owl as he was running and jumping around like a crazy person, and crooked moved everytime I got close – almost like he knew what I was trying to do.
I like his transmog to be honest, especially being used in EPL, it seemed fitting. Yes, I enjoy the little things.
Scholo was hard, not in that it was particularly difficult, but it had a lot of big AOE pulls and I was reminded why I could never be a healer…Navimie is just amazing I was watching Owl’s health at some points and wondering how in hell he could survive but he did, testament to amazing healing and tanking. I was gobsmacked! Whilst we were attempting to kill the last boss Aza was on a particularly upset tirade about how he didn’t want to be grats’ed for silver. (Remember readers, we go for gold – even if I only need silver – Aza doesn’t CM for silver!! ) We got silver originally as one of the bosses bugged and we lost too much time. So we re-did scholo just to get the gold, we pumped out a little more DPS and speed and didn’t bug the boss! WOOT!
I forgot I recently reinstalled my WoW and I have been playing modless since, including my screenshotter!!! So this is the exciting achievement spam I have for completing it!
We then decided to head to Niuzau temple because apparently all the dungeons I have left are the hard ones, which terrifies me as these haven’t been easy by any stretch, but I think that is the issue when being dragged through – they know them really well and I am just trying to keep up and not make bad decisions.
We actually did pretty well actually with this one hardly any issues, we started a couple of times, stupid debuff killing us. But overall I was pretty ecstatic I had another 2 knocked off my list.
After completing this though the guys were keen to do more, but…I only had the really horrible ones left until I mentioned I had Jade Serpent at silver only. Well, that was completely unacceptable and it was apparently easy, so off we trundled for the last of our golds for the night!
I know have Shado-pan Monastery, Stormstout Brewery and Mogu’shan palace to get. I also just noticed I have silver for Setting Sun, but don’t tell Owl or Aza, they might make me do it anyway!!! heehehh To be honest though, given I have only really done all these once for the achievement and not really gone back to see if I can better the scores I have – I find this below list actually pretty good…we are not that far off the guild bests….on some of them…I would hate to see the realm bests or even world bests to be honest!
As always another post about how much I owe these guildies, there are just not enough words – there will never be enough that I can say which will sufficiently cover the amount of gratitude I feel for them. So here is something that may express one small tiny amount:
