Last night was a very interesting raid night for me. In brief we went to Ony 25, Gruuls, Mags, Sunwell and then OS 10 with 3 drakes.
Ony 25 went well the second attempt, no one died and we got some achievements since I hadn’t done it in 25 man before 😀 So that is always nice 🙂 Have scored a fairfew achievements overall the last week, I am loving it!
We wiped the first time as the guild seems to have an overly excitable character – reminiscent of Tobio – who thinks that pulling whelps and dragging the boss on a false start is a funny way to play the game. Not so for most of us, who don’t enjoy that kind of play time. We don’t get a lot of time to play so I find it annoying when I have to spend time running back for my corpse. Anyway after the initial wipe because said person kept going to the caves and dragging more whelps even during the fight, no idea how we even got as far as we did to be honest. As mentioned second attempt when raid leader went a little aggro at him was much better, nice and smooth.
We then went to Mags and gruuls for those who didn’t do it back in BC. Someone kept agrooing mags and false starting us, which was annoying as well, then someone pulled Gruul while only 5 or so people were in the room, they managed to kill him as well!! Can’t believe both those fights used to be so hard and would wipe raids for weeks :/ Mags was dead before we even had to click the cubes…that’s how fast he died…..
We then trolled over to Sunwell for a looksie, was fun as, we bugged out Kalcegos due to someone being outside the circle, then we got Brutallis down and were playing on felmyst – she wiped us twice i think and I am not so sure we would have gotten her down, she was tough! I want to go back to Sunwell !! I was having so much fun!
A fair few had to leave at that point so when we got back to Dal we got a group happening fro OS 10 man with 3 drakes, we pugged a couple of people who left after each attempt, and we were getting her to 10% each time.
My new GM’s both brought in their mages and gave me crap about having such low DPS, one even commenting that my gear was better than what was being shown on the meters. So I decided to prove to them I sucked and I whipped out my arcane mage talents….and it backfired, I hit 5k DPS on the next attempt compared to the 3k I was barely doing as FFB. So they both started whispering me tips, hints, rotations etc and I got completely overwhelmed. I have to fix my glyphs and change my gear fi I seriously want to give arcane a shot, but I have to admit I was almost beating one of our best hunters and that was feeling good….the other 2 mages were hitting 7k DPS and i want to do that kind of damage!! So I guess I am going to have to look through my gear and see what i can change out for some other stuff. I am also going to have to learn how to play mage – ie what gear I need to go for, food etc.
So I will be researching today at lunch and then some when i get home!
I am slightly excited – all this in the week when I have been able to just sit back and enjoy the company! I Love it! I may actually be able toplay my mage again like I used to and be proud of my knowledge.
