Mythic within time!!

We thought we would give a timed mythic run a go, because why not. We only had lowbie keys though so the best of the selection we had was a Tol Dagor 2.

We smashed it. I was so excited about the situation though I forgot to take a shot of the timer screen and I wanted to get a group shot….All I have is this.

The only proof I have is Moryrt receiving the achievement for completing a times mythic.

We have both been snowed under the last week with things going on and stress so have have barely had any game time at all. Including gearing up, mythics (or doing the weekly 4) and even expeditions, all been left and forgotten about.  I guess we also don’t want to burn ourselves out by doing nothing but WoW, however I do feel bad that we aren’t running more mythics with the guys, however they seem to be making their way in the world without us (thankfully).

I was excited about out little achievement and then I saw a +16 has already been completed and someone was saying they were doing +9’s…. <shame>. How do they even get the time to gear up for that so quickly.  I just don’t have enough hours in the day. Seriously. I need to pull my finger out though and get some more runs in.

I need to either win lotto or get a part time job that pays what I am on now…LOL.

We have tried multiple mythics since then and have not managed to get another one in time yet. I mostly blame other people like Chris and his fat hunter butt; but we all hold some blame for pulling extra mobs, dying to stuff and generally falling of planks and dying to sharks (thankfully before the timer actually starts!) or not turning into golden balls of energy and dying upon hitting the ground for 10000 feet up. The highest I have done so far is a 4 underrot and that was simply so I could possibly get a better piece of gear upon reset. See our steady stream of failures below….

I really would like to get some complete in time and it is honestly our death counts causing the problem. This can be solved easily! Lol

Mythic dungeon master?

So once we broke through the first barrier of mythics we basically never went back to a heroic. The only time has been for world quests so we can just burn through them quickly or to complete an achievement.

The upside is we managed to get the dungeon master achievement after some targeted runs.

Tol Dagor is such a confusing maze of a place, I have no idea how people find their ways through these dungeons for the first time.

The Sand Queen boss is a pain of a fight, with the worst bit being the drones giving the boss a buff so you have to kill them away from the tank. Great for a ranged class but crap when the rest of the group is melee.

Jes Howlis is fun, I like this fight but only the you have the ability to clear out the cells before the fight.

Knight Captain Valyri is a horrible fight, my most hated, having to move the barrels is painful and if you don’t you get covered in fire. I managed to move the barrels perfectly one attempt but did no DPS on the boss. I guess that is the point right? Someone sacrifices their DPS for the good of the group?

Overseer Korgus the last boss, it a fun fight as well. I like the mechanic of not being able to move too much (unless your tank pulls the boss before you are even up the last lot of stairs so you get stunned almost immediately and nearly die from the first lot of black on the ground). It certainly keeps you on your toes.

King’s rest. What can I say. Screw you to the pits of hell you rubbish instance. Specifically the The Council of Tribes (bastards).  What a horrible horrible fight. I can’t even talk about it without getting angry.  In fact it annoyed me enough I took a picture when we killed them.  This is not so bad a fight now having done it a few more times but it still a touch and go situation.

The Golden Serpent; the best tip we got for this (Thanks Nathan) was to start the boss at the top of the steps, dump our first and second batches of gold just there and then move the boss to below the steps for the next lot. It keeps the gold together for some amazing AOE and they die super fast.

Mchimba the Embalmer I don’t mind the boss fight, but the trash can go and get screwed. SCREWED!!  Every single time I do any damage I get the green puddles under me and no one else gets them. It doesn’t matter if I am in melee, middle or farthest away.  The only time I don’t get puddles is when I stand there and literally do nothing.  Everything I have read says it is supposed to be random, but I can guarantee you it isn’t. It makes me so angry, I swear every single time I am in that room and everyone just laughs at me. Which makes me even more angry.    Not much angers me in WoW.  Even Moryrt made comment during a run about how he never sees me angry when I play, except this room.

Finally, Dazar, The First King I had no idea the first time I did this, it seemed super complicated and confusing but the next couple of times I have run it seems like no problem at all. I would consider this much easier than any of the other bosses in this dungeon.

Shrine of storms we did heroic as it was the last one we needed for the dungeon achievement! What a place. So good in fact that I can barely remember it. There were fights, something about water, loads of trash….yeah it was good? I don’t remember disliking much about it?

I guess I need to go back to Shrine. First I want to open up Siege or Boralus.
