Fun times

We had a really good raid tonight, everyone was on the ball and doing their thing. We one shot everything except Hodir and called it after we killed Thorim. The poor kiwis had daylisght savings,  which means they are 3 hours ahead for this week, so we have been calling raids early so as to …

Onyxia

  What a farce is all I can say. So Ony is exactly the same with one tiny exception, she spawns adds during phase 2 now. ie big fat scaly dragons who do an AOE blastwave thing which hurts. Ony can no longer be targeted by melee when she is in the air and hence …

foot in mouth disease :D

So after my little whinge fest, my guild decides to prove me wrong and kill bosses like we are in a level 60 instance. We killed Beasts and Jaxx this week….both after very little effort. Now I know they are not considered hard bosses like Ulduar, but you have to understand we have a very …

spanking along

So the other day I wrote about how my guys are impressing me…they did it again with a take down of Ignis 🙂 We had maybe 6 attempts in total on him and we got him.  We had always avoided him simply because we failed miserably every time we did try him, so we decided …

Freya…nicely done

So we got Freya down, i missed the raid and was listening on via vents and an alt 😀  But was really good, the guys were working together, communicating, throwing ideas back and forth…was excellent to hear :d  I am very very proud of them. She is a complex fight and I was really concerned …

Thorim Strat

So we have figured that either 2 hunters or a hunter and a melee down the gauntlet works really well for us, and also 2 tanks in the arena seems to be the winner for us. I know it reduced a DPS, but in all honesty, I think 2 tanks is more important in keeping …

Thorim DOWN!!

So we squished the big pansy tonight! We had a full group with the best of our guys online and it took us a few attempts but we did it.  We had a funny run of it actually, as one attempt the ganutlet woudl do awesome and the arena would suck, but then the next …

Ulduar last night :D

Had a great night in ulduar last night, was awesome, we one shot every boss except Ignis (we skip him). FL, razor, XT, IC, Kolo and Auri.  All one shot and perfect attempts. Very few deaths and was sexy! I got a new ring off IC, which was a fair upgrade :d  I also got …

Ulduar and gear:D

So last night in Ulduar, we did really well.   We one shot Auri and her mental pussy cats with one healer and DPS down from the start of the fight, we almost one shot Hodir (we had a false start) and we had a false start on the Iron Council, but that was due to …

What a wow!!

SO last night after a week with no raids the guys were just superb 😀 After three weeks of constant wiping on Hodir – we got him on attempt number 2 – our second Hodir kill!!  Very exciting 🙂  We one shot everything else and then went and had a play on the Iron Council, …

No raiding….woot?

Basically haven’t raided this week due to numbers, just people offline with RL things, which has been nice I have to admit. A nice week of not being pushed for success. Next week will be back to normal I am sure, and I think most of the guildies were happy with a couple of nights …

Iron Council Strat

So far the best strat that has worked for us, is having our MT grab Steelbreaker and tank him near the front door, and an OT picking up Morogrim (or whatever his name is) and tanking him to the left hand side of the room. (Left hand as you are looking at them).  We don’t …

Hodir Strat

So basically our Hodir Strat is to remove all the NPC’s from the iceblocks – every time the flash freeze happens…get them out – starting with the mage of course 😀 We tank him in the centre of the circle on the ground and try and keep him as still as possible, so we don’t …

This weeks wrap up!

So Hodir finally bit the dust…no idea why he is so hard, but finally people got it together, so we went to try out Iron council as well and had Brunir to 50% before we all ended up dead…so basically they are doable as well. For the sake of testing it out, we tried FL …

Auriya Strat

Crazy cat Lady 😀  Evil bitch this one. We use a few combos of strats out there, we have a hunter/immolation trap, DK/D&D, Pally/Consecrate etc to pull them over, we stand at the top of the stars and the end of their patrol and we hide 😀  We have an OT for the 2 cats …

Oh How I hate thee Hodir….

We wiped all night on Hodir, we got much better towards the end, and we were getting him consistently to approx 30% before too many of us were dead to beat the enrage timer. However I was consistently sitting on about 3.5k DPS all night which made me pretty happy, I have to admit I …

Kologarn Strat

Kologarn, is such a fun fight 🙂 Dead easy too 😀 MT attacks Kologarn – funny that :d  Making sure they dont’ fall off the ledge 😀  We have lost so many people down the front of Kologarn’s pants 😀 All DPS is on the Right Arm, we pop heroism when the arm respawns.  We …

Defense rating

Each point of +Defense skill adds 0.04% to the chance to be Missed, to Block, to Dodge and to Parry. This means +25 Defense will grant you an extra 1% Miss, Parry, Dodge, and Block. The formula is constant across all classes. Critical Hit immunity for a level 80 player against a raid boss occurs at 540 Defense and …

Hit rating

Ok, my hit breakdown in english 😀  well my english anyway: So based on the fact we don’t have an Oomkin all the time – i need my hit to be at (for my fire spec) 420 for most raids and  341 for some…LOL…great fun that will be 😀 Arcane spec – 263 hit rating …

New Guild

New guild has been created and moved across to a new server.  Approx 10 of my guildies decided to follow me to the new server, so we are just going to focus on 10 man content, as that was my intention with my moving to a new server. It is nice to have my closest …
