We are such a hardcore guild, we 9 manned FL last night with me tanking again….LMAO…ok, so we only did Shannox and Baleroc…but we did it with 9.
I tanked Firelands on my pally!! We got the first four bosses down – Beth, Shan, Ryo and Bale. We could have gotten more done, but we ran out of time as we wiped a couple of times on a few simply because we had a weird mix of people on.
You know when you have one of those nights where everyone is doing everything wrong…just by small amounts….that was last night….we had to get Lord Ryo and Baleroc down and it took us a long time, I think we wiped of volcano dude 4 times maybe? We just couldn’t get it together….every attempt something got borked….it was nasty….however…success in the end, it went pretty smoothly actually – sometimes you just a few practice runs I guess….
Baleroc was interesting to say the least, we lost a healer just as we were about to start him, so had to change everything around and get some others doing their shizz, it was difficult, but in the end we also got him on the “last attempt for the night”…we won’t include the second last 5 second attempt when all the DPS stole aggro off the tank in the first .2 seconds….ehhehe it was a little funny….and I will never give up that secret as to why it happened! I have to protect my tanking friends 🙂
So tonight we will be going to Alyzrazor…..god help us all. I have to watch a few more videos today and see if I can pick up any extra tips or tricks to help people get through it….but honestly they just need to move and I can’t help with that, especially when I am flying around upstairs….
So onto other things…..I finally! FINALLY!!!! managed to get the achievement for all the cooking and fishing dailies in the major cities. The fishing ones I have had for a while – however the cooking one is a completely different story – I have been going to Darnassus almost daily – I would say 5 out of 7 days a week to get the one quest I needed and FINALLY!!! it happened! YAY.
I have done the headless horseman every single day for halloween and gotten 3 sinister squashlings (I have kept them as I am wondering if and when pets become tradable if they will be sellable given they are a halloween event?) and no damn mount!! I have seen so many other people get them and I am just alone in the world with no mount 🙁
My archaeology is just on 400, so I am going to try and max that out today…I have been doing it slowly slowly, but it is a painful profession to level – I never eve want to do it on another toon if I can avoid it! It’s worse than fishing in my books!
Extra long weekend this weekend, means I can do a few things guilt free 🙂 Archaeology and druid levelling!! that’s my plan!
I did my first raid the other night as full fire, and it was…interesting….to say the least…I suck at rotations at this stage…I kept getting flustered when things would proc, I have also discovered my UI SUCKS! I have cast bars over other bars and I can’t see boss debuffs, and I can’t seem to locate my dot timers….heheh
I must fix it this weekend. Hopefully before tomorrow night. I also need to make some stop cast macros as I need to get my pyro off asap and not waste time…anyway, these are all things you learn when you change specs 🙂 In all honesty I have just put up with my ui because it is such a daunting task to redo it all….and with arcane I really only needed to watch one thing….
My dps was a little touchy, but that was to be expected given I am learning rotations and getting frustrated with myself when i got it wrong. I was up there at 23k sometimes and then as low as about 12k…most of the time I was in between those…..it’s very spiky damage and I really can’t just look at a dps meter at the end of a fight and expect that to show me anything much….I really should look at the logs and see how I went and what I need to cut out on and who i can compare myself to 🙂
Aside from that I am enjoying fire, there is something satisfying about pyroblasting something three times in a row when you get a great proc run 😀
I am off to do my Ui now….it is going to take me a while and we are raiding tomorrow….so I have to have it done before then.
I uploaded the guild’s Lord Ryo kill onto my youtube page as well, and I am hoping to get the baleroc one up there tonight – if I remember to set it to upload before I go to bed tonight.
Went into firelands tonight after killing Beth yesterday and we smashed lord ryowhatever AND baleroc!
Lord R was seriously pretty easy, a bit of movement and things to look for but overall with the increase in communication it went so smoothly in fact two shot….rather happy about that.
Baleroc was a little more difficult, given our guilds penchant for not talking on mumble much, I made a pointed comment about needing to talk it through coz we suck at it….didn’t really help to start :). I think we wiped 4 times? And then everything just sort of fell into place, I think an easy-ish fight once you figure out who is doing what and when. Communication was awesome 🙂
My dps was woeful on lord R, I am not entirely sure arcane is the best spec for me in this raid 🙂 but then I was about 17k on bale…could have been better but I died in the last 2% and I was running to get a shard before that…so I will check our logs to see actual figures 🙂
There is still some drama going on which I (thankfully) don’t know anything about, but it just weighs on the mind…that people may leave or stop raiding or any manner of things.
We did prove that if people are paying attention; bosses can die! So we are now 4/7 and I have 4 videos I need to do now…… 😀
