It’s a Mythic!!

We did our very first mythic!!  Can you believe it! We are soo excited. 310 ilevel for me, Moryrt and Nibblepie were about 316-320, so we knew we weren’t too far off being able to handle them with our set group. Stab was 340 I think and Pracey was 332? But still not exactly stellar levels.

Figuring that mythic 0 isn’t a killer and isn’t really much worse than heroic we decided to head to the motherlode because it was a central location and easy to get to. Never underestimate laziness people, never 🙂

We had one particularly bad patch where we got mobs from behind a hut accidentally as well as mobs to the side. It was bedlam. We wiped technically once, but we died a lot more than that. We kept running back individually to keep the momentum going before deciding to just wait and go again as a group.

I took a picture of our group in the middle of the run because I wanted to remember our very first mythic. Unlike some people who have already completed the collective mythic achievement, some of us have waited to go together as a group. LOL yes, many cherry popping jokes were made because some of us are juveniles when together.

The last boss killed us, once. I am terrified of doing this on a harder keystone. This fight is horrid. So much stuff on the ground, and homing missiles and gattling guns and smashes ….it makes me nervous.  Hopefully a few more attempts and we will spank it with ease.

We finished that earlier than we thought we would, so we signed up for another heroic. The Waycrest Manor.  (We now only have 2 more to see).  I liked it. Pracey was enamoured with the pipe organ playing throughout and I admit it was nice.  The fights aren’t too bad on heroic. I have no idea about the fight with the flasks and the dead people, but I am sure I will make sense of it after another couple of goes.

I clicked a “Vile pod” which was sitting in a fountain in a courtyard and “Groundskeeper Lilltih” popped up and almost killed me. I started screaming for aid. Reminiscent of Gondor really, but my team came running and I survived.  I tried to not touch anything else. There doesn’t seem to be anything fancy about the pod just an extra elite spawn.

So mythic number 1 done. We got so much gear drop as well.  Pracey is the only plate wearer and the brilliance of 4 people being able to swap gear is indescribable.  We are now well into the 324 space for ilevel which means we might get close for raiding requirements set by the guild of 330, especially if we can fit in some mythics between now and then. 340 ilevel gear dropping on bosses is nothing to be baulking at and basically why we stopped running heroics – why chase 325 when we can chase 340? Amirite?

DPS wise I think the boomy is doing me ok, I would like to be higher but I need to stop comparing myself to Stab and Pracey who had 30 ilevels on me and still have about 20 after upgrades. It makes a big difference.  I even downloaded Hekili (mod for rotations) and my DPS isn’t that far off if I am not using the mod compared to when I am using it. This makes me happy.

I see many more mythics in our future. Many.

Heroics, finally :)

Our heroic runs have been basically smooth as butter. Until our first attempt on Merektha.

She spanked us in ways, we ought not to be spanked and we died. Horrifically. There was just…stuff going on everywhere and we made too many mistakes.  We went back in and killed her the next attempt but it was touch and go as well.

I think the moist difficult thing in the dungeon is the electric balls of pain. Do not attempt this when drunk. I can vouch for it being very hard to watch the patterns and react fast enough. Someone else in our group can also vouch for the pain. I hate to see these in mythics. I really just don’t want to.

Of course Moryrt just flaps himself over. Cheater.

We did a few others and they all went super smooth. A few niggles and me pulling extra moonfired mobs, but I swear it was some other druid we are in the group with.

Underrot wiped us a couple of times due to those stupid snakes, we tried…attempted…to stealth past. Stealth by a rogue type person. It failed.  We had multiple snakes and it was nasty.   We didn’t do that again LOL.

The motherlode was nowhere near as bad as I had thought it would be. The last boss was horrific. I still just don’t get that fight, so much movement and too many things to watch out for.  I can’t wait to see that one in mythic and tear my hair out in tears.

I learnt during our heroic runs that my battle rez is no longer instant cast. I have to actually cast it?  Like what the heck? I need to plan what I am going to do and when I can rez people.  It is insanity. INSANITY I tell you!  Then I tried to dispel a curse and found that has an 8 second clown.  WHAT?!  I tried to help our healer and failed.

The heroics are fun, I can’t wait to see the other dungeons from the alliance side. Especially whatever id in Drustvar, the witchy part of my soul loves that place.

It is enjoyable doing new dungeons!! ilevel is now 310…nowhere near what i need for raiding or mythics but we were all swapping gear with each other and it is making it easier to gear up.

More dungeons!!

We finally did the other 2 dungeons with our group.

We started with the MOTHERLOAD!!! because someone was a deserter and we needed to physically enter an instance. I can’t remember who the deserter was, it seems to irrelevant now :p I happened to be standing next to the summoning stone and Moryrt was nearby so decided that was the fastest one to get to.

I was looking into the bosses to write this post and found this is actually in Kezan, the Goblin starting zone. We had a discussion when we got out of the instance, about whether it was or not and we decided it wasn’t. We were wrong.

There was so much trash in the instance! Soooo many bombs. It was horrific.

The only boss that seemed like it is going to be horrible in mythics is the lady with the glowing orange flames of death on the ground Rixxa Fluxflame, maybe the end boss as well Mogul Razdunk.  Otherwise I think they should be manageble.  I quite like  Coin-Operated Crowd Pummeler he is fun running around kicking bombs back in his face.

We won’t discuss the issues I had after taking the indian jones style cart down the hill to then stand on a bomb 4 times in a row and die 3.  It just doesn’t need to be talked about….ever again.

Then we signed up for underrot as it was the only place we hadn’t been to. Those worms in the ground are a right pain. Really horrible.

But over all not a bad place. I honestly don’t remember most of the bosses in there…I do remember the last boss Unbound Abomination being a gorgeous hunk of flesh. Divine really.

I like the dungeons so far, they are pretty, the fights are mostly good at this level and I think are going to be terrifying at mythic level. I can’t wait to get to level 120 and start gearing up.

I am really enjoying the changes to Boomy as well 🙂 I really enjoy playing it. So happy I am sticking to my druid this xpac (for the moment).

How is everyone else finding the dungeons?

Chasing achievements

Ever since the achievement system came into effect, I have had a few BC dungeons not listed as completed.  This has always sat in the back of my mind, because I don’t recall doing anything to get the ones I already had.

Yesterday, I finally decided to get off my butt and do them.

I did do Setthek Halls just before this so get my birdie…he didn’t drop 🙁 Maybe Next time right?

Shammy bear and other news

Hubby and I stayed up until 3am last night…3AM!!!  Oh hell!

We got our toons to 85 though and then ran a couple of dungeons on them.

It is a little exciting, but my shammy is now 85!  His pally is also 85!

This makes it my 5th toon to max and his 3rd, with his druid about 30% left to 85 he is certainly catching me up.

I have really enjoyed just running around and playing with him to be honest, I miss it when he is not playing and I find immense satisfaction in us doing this together.

We chased a few achievements last night after we hit 85 since we were in the area.  I really have to fix that mod!!

Twilight quests complete
King of the mountain

I was going to make this a separate post, but then decided to shove it all in one as I am talking about him now anyway it seemed a fitting place to just continue on.  I have found the solution to my guild woes, I have joined a guild – wasn’t that fast?

My hubby has created a guild!  He is currently deciding on a few details at the moment, and it is early stages, but he has been thinking about doing this for a while now. He was one of the GM’s back in the day with out first first guild, so he is well familiar with the running of a guild and he is a no nonsense kind of guy with a very level head.

I am excited because my hubby is not the type to let people who can’t play stay as raiders.  He is an awesome player and to be fair all of our friends are very good players as well, so he has very little tolerance for people not being able to play their class well, I think I am excited most because he is such an eloquent person when he wants to be, I think finding a great team is not going to be easy, but if anyone can pull it off – he can.

So, with the above occurring, I have moved my mage over to be in his guild and left my other toons on AT for the moment, really only because the amounts add up when moving multiple toons around.  I am yet too pin him down as to raiding days etc, but I have gleaned that we will have loot rules (yay!) and more than likely suicide kings, I would say and it looks like only 2 days raiding at this stage for 3 hours…so maybe wed and Sun from 7/7.30 until 10/10.30 pm AEST – but this is all just rough as guts at the moment.

The new ME!

So one of the reasons we were up so late, was trying to get guild rep and experience etc to help get the guild started up – we got 22% through the first level, so that is a good sign if we can continue in the fashion 🙂  We are going to bring over our hunters next week (perhaps) as they are almost 70 and to level them to 85 would be a massive injection of guild experience. We are also going to finish questing in both Vashj and Uldum for the cash as we did neither of them whilst levelling 🙂  Extra Cash!!!

So if anyone has toons they want to stick into the guild on Nagrand – please feel free!  We won’t mind the levelling boost and I won’t mind the company whilst I level, quest and generally try and get some guild rep and experience happening.

Wish us luck, in the world of constant guilds being created we don’t want to just be another one, fingers crossed.

Just chilling out

My rogue is level 17 🙂 Highest level rogue by miles now. Still not sure if i enjoy it, although it has grown on me since hitting 15 and being able to run dungeons. The fact that I am top on dps helps. I won’t discuss any further the horrific LFD runs at that low level – suffice it to say…I think I had the deserter buff more than I was in a run.

Not sure if I mentioned this, but hubby joined frosties on his druid and is now 83. We are still new and feeling a little like outsiders – but that happens with every guild, but so far I love the sense of humour in the guild. They have me giggling a fair bit when I am online. I actually find I am wanting to log onto my dath toons, wishing my AT toons were there…I really do enjoy the people…when they are chatting. I would say 60% of the time guild chat is pretty quiet.

It is fun running dungeons with hubby healing me as I tank. Two more levels and we can start doing heroics, after all, I am only getting 13g for every run, I don’t mind though as it is only costing me about 2g repairs since I am not even close to dying, but I would like to be getting some JP/VP and not just coin.

We may move our other horde toons over, but it really isn’t important at this stage – it would just be nice to have other toons with maxxed professions (or close to max) that can aid us. We have discovered that Dath has a crappy AH…there is not much on there and anything that is on there is so uber expensive compared to what we are used to on Aman’thul. That decision will likely be made on Friday – but I would want to bring both with me…hunter and shammy, he would bring pally and hunter. Decisions, Decisions.

Onto some other news, which I have yet to tell my GM about, I will be breaking the news to him tonight. It looks like in my bid to get healthier, I will be starting karate in a fortnight. Their 2 training days happen to be the same days we raid. I will now only be available to raid on Sundays with them and that means I am not likely going to be raid leading for them in MoP, of course, we don’t have a date for MoP, and i can’t tell the future…but it is not looking hopeful.

Warrior love

I had my day off on Wednesday and so I spent some time giving my warrior some love 🙂

Started off doing Ahune on all my toons – stupidly I was tanking on my pally when I signed up as healer and I didn’t even realise…DUH!

After those 4 were done, I decided to run some normals on my warrior, just to get rid of some gear – I am wearing tanking greens, but they are greens 🙂  I want to be able to at least be running twilight heroics…possibly LFR, but I am not overly stressed about that.  I am already running LFR on my druid and I have no idea how people do it multiple times on their various alts…I could probably handle it on one more toon…but that would be the limit.

Anyway, every run, I explained to the group that I was building my set so my threat generation was a little slow and to be please be aware.  I had absolutely no problems. I think my little warning let people know the situation and it made things so much easier.  If I lost mobs I got them back very quickly, overall no one died in the 6 or so runs I did and I was quite happy with it. No one yelled at me or gave me shit – that made me happy as well.

I am half blues now, 1 epic and the rest still greens, I am getting there.  I can run heroics now for cata if I want to, but I will hold off until I am happy with my gear – a little more change would be nice.  I don’t want to run into heroics and get squished with one hit.

I was quite happy with my effort and I have missed tanking on my warrior…I do enjoy my pally as well, but my warrior has been around as long as my mage has, and holds a very special place in my heart 🙂

He was quite happy to be getting back into the dungeons as well…kept jumping around like a crazy cow. I think he is just happy to be having company again.
