Battle of Dazar’alor – You know it.

Last Wednesday night was the start of the new raid and also the day I picked up my new car. Yes. I have a new car – who cares about the raid right? I was late to the raid because everything was delayed at the car yard. I was so late in fact that the …

AoTC – G’huunalicious

We have had a few weeks since my last raiding post being stuck on Zul, Mythrax and G’huun.  It has been a little bit of a struggle not because we aren’t good enough – we really are, but because we have had weird class mixes or not enough people etc. One of the questions I …

Yup, I can say I have done it now.

I did LFR. <hangs head> Why?  Tell me why I thought it would be a good idea? What makes it worse was I had to keep signing up. The first one I jumped into was Zul only. They had already killed FD and Vectis. We pulled the entire platform of adds. We basically died a …

So we finally got our things happening

I am back at karate on Wednesday nights now so I cannot attend the Wednesday night raids. So I can only hope, in my selfish boomy heart they actually get boss kills on a Friday night instead. Sort of like last week 🙂 I was told on Wednesday they tried a few new things for …

Thanks Daylight savings

I hate DST. I detest it. Such a stupid convention. Anyway due to the stupidity of changing the time the Kiwis in the guild needed to change the raid night for the week until we in Aus caught up.  So we raided Friday and Saturday instead. I tried to drag Zeirah along but she had …

Zek’voz can Zek’off*

The guild was a bit weird on our raid the other night. People seemed to be a little grumpy?  No idea why, Friday was a public holiday in Victoria thanks to the AFL which meant us southerners had the day off to chill out and relax. We started to drink way earlier than raid time, …

G’huun you gelatinous grotto grub

Our Wednesday night raid did not go as expected in any way. It was like an event out of some weird TV sitcom that makes no sense from start to finish.  I know on our last raid we were so close to getting him down, but it wasn’t looking promising when we started. A 4% …

The temple of Mythrax

Our temple is not deep in the underground of London.  No, ours is in the dark heart of Nazmir. A place where we were getting our butts handed to us in a devastating manner. Disheartening as well. I spent all morning looking up strats, watching videos and reading about the melee heavy strats people have …

We are coming for you G’huun

You and your pet, Zul. I missed the guild’s second raid as it was moved to a Saturday night due to lack of healer availability for Friday, but we had plans already which I wouldn’t get out of. So I watched it on the stream (thank god Ben was streaming!!) whilst our friends watched the …

Warsong’s first Uldir

There is some current discussion about moving the raid nights around within the guild but until that is sorted the raid nights are still Wednesday/Friday.  On the 5th September (yes this is now a week after we started) we headed into the bowels of the Heart of Darkness to begin the slaughter of G’huun and …

Finally 11/11

It was a great birthday present if you ask me 🙂 Drew decided to stay home with me instead of go to karate and because we had massive dinner plans on the weekend I convinced him we should stay home instead of going out.  We did raid, which was also an awesome birthday idea and …

Shared: Topic 35: Your most badass moment in game

LOL We have long been the heroes of our own stories in World of Warcraft. NPCs, both minor and major alike, remind us constantly that we are the saviours of Azeroth; that if it weren’t for us, the world would have ended if we hadn’t have defeated that boss, or killed that pest, or scooped …

Blizzard why did you betray me this way? After everything I have given you.

I cannot preface this post enough to explain how everything that follows stems from a deep sadness at being misled by Blizzard at a time that should have been amazing. I do not see the silver lining on this. We were going to run some mythics for the weekly quest however Michael was eating dinner; …

Raiding: Is it a wipe or a kill?

Woo!  Wooooo!!  You know what that means.  Epicness follows below. Tonight started rough, we wiped a couple of times due to just random assortment of bad luck, but we improved dramatically on phase 3 with some better set up for adds. It was good to see it coming together. We got him to 4% and …

Raiding: Heroic Argus

As you may be aware at the moment I am suffering a severe head cold. The type that makes your face painful all over with sinus gunk. I haven’t been at work the last 2 days and I wasn’t sure I was really even capable of raiding but I made an appearance because, well, aside …

Raiding: Heroic Aggramar

We decided to give Aggramar a couple of attempts and see if we could do him instead of Coven (the painful trio).  We struggled with the spawns, both location and timing of explosion. It requires a lot of talking between people to ensure the adds are stopped until we need them. If we take 2 …

Raiding: Heroic Varimathras

So we managed to smash this one in the face with relative ease.  I say relative because it was me causing most of the mess with trying to get into the right position to avoid double misery.  My initial attempts were mediocre at best, however I was taunting too quickly  – possibly – I am …

Hellfire Citadel, kicking it old school

The title implies I went to Hellfire Citadel. Reality is that when I stepped into the raid I knew I had never been there. Oops. Missed that completely. The guild was doing a run for achievements, which I now have a fair few of thanks to the guys.  I did offer to drop out when …

Good Friday achievement run

What do you do when you are not a Christian but have public holidays because of the mainstream?  Find others who are also not doing anything over easter/good friday and spend the day eating, drinking and playing WoW. I am quite proud pagan and I would happily work on Christian holidays if it meant I …

The stresses of new bosses

So, iron maidens…. What can I say about them that don’t involve more off colour words than urbandictionary.com??  If only they were as awesome as these ones? Maybe they are if you are into Orc girls…. Anyway last raid week was wipe fest on them.  I missed Thursday and figured they would have killed them …
