I am going to put myself in the group of “meh”.
I love Blizzcon and I do enjoy my live stream and all the other stuff that goes on, I have always found it enjoyable, however I am outgoing to lose sleep over something like that.
They will have more again and if it means we can actually have MoP out faster I am all for it…well sort of…I am in no hurry for mop – we are still trying to clear DS…hell we are only on 5/8 and we don’t look like we will be getting through it anytime soon.
I don’t really get into the whole egame thing, so it is going to be a quiet year for me on the Blizzcon front….
It was one of those nights last night whee anything that could go wrong, did go wrong…we ended up only downing 2 bosses.
We took two pugs in as we were short people and I think everyone got nervous or something.
Either way – it was not good….hopefully we can pick it back up for Sunday – at least we have heaps to clear I suppose…..LOL
We wiped 3 times on Zon’ozz and 3 times on Yorsahj and then one of our healers DC’d and it was all over….Horrible horrible night….I felt bad for the pugs to be honest…..
Sorry I haven’t been around much, I decided to start taping our kills in DS, and so I have been spending time playing with those and uploading them to youtube etc
Drop past and say hello if you get a chance!! My youtube nickname is onyxiia
It was a tough night! but in the end we got him down.
We were getting him to 2% consistently, we just didn’t have quite enough dps. We were two healing and we decided to have the normal third healer dosing…which means the gear was not quite there and it was a little tougher, however after a short break and some gear upgrades, enchants etc, we smacked him down.
It was still really close, and hopefully next week if people get a couple more upgrades, we will find that just a tad easier again. It’s a cool fight.
I took crit food, pre potted, crit potion – everything i could think of to get my chances of pyro up and in the end i think it paid of. My dps as the fight ended was 27k..shame i can’t hit that consistently…
Anyway, onto the boat now and that will be tomorrow night’s raids and we shall see how we do.
We went and had a play on Ultrax tonight and it will be interesting to see how the logs come out. I am not impressed with my DPS as fire – although it can be quite good, the honest truth is that it sucks if the RNG gods are against you. Tonight I was floating between 18 – 26k dps on attempts and that makes fights like Ultrax a real problem, especially since I seem incapable of getting those awesomely huge numbers that other mages seem to get…
Anyway, was really impressed, the first 5 attempts we had issues just learning the fight and figuring out the fading light debuff, but overall wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. We were getting him to about 50 % at the midway to enrage point, so we are almost there for DPS..another couple of upgrades for people and we will be very close. I don’t really know what else we can do other than run FL for some attempted Rags kills, as most of us cannot actually upgrade any gear in FL now thanks to VP and LFR. But I know I can upgrade a few more things with VP’s…so all in all I think we will have him very very soon and then we should be fine for the rest of it….Fingers crossed
I am not playing SWTOR as much…I did something stupid – I deleted my main toon…yes I know I used to mock those people as well, but seriously – in WoW your characters stay in the same order on the log in screen…in SWTOr – they move the most recently played to the top…since i had only been playing the one toon I didn’t even notice that until I went to select it to delete it….I selected the position where it has always been and typed away. My toons looked exactly the same as well as I had created her to be a bank toon and so didn’t really care what she looked like. Anyway they have not responded to my 3 in game tickets in a week and so i started re-levelling the same toon and basically I am sort of over the game….not that it is boring or anything but…it is just not holding my interest at the moment.
I am feeling a little wow deprived as well and so it has been nice to just be back in WoW doing my think and having some fun.
So hopefully tomorrow night we will have a better idea of the Ultrax fight.
It was our first night back in and we smashed through the first four bosses like a knife through butter.
We started late by about 20 minutes and I think everyone was a little hyped up. I borked the first boss…I got stuck behind a pillar and then to avoid the black blood I ran into some adds…and well you can guess where that went smashed him when we came back though.
Went straight to zonnozz a d we wiped on e due to bad positioning and then I am pretty sure we got him on the next attempt. Considering we spent a month wiping on him; it was a massive upper for the guild!
One shot on the slime lord and then headed to the evil hagara! We had spent two nights on her before the Xmas break so I figured it was going to rough. Thanks to some research into healing through the ice tombs, we only wiped twice, I think, and then we got her. Everyone stayed alive during the tombs and we didn’t lose anyone until right near the end.
Overall though it was an absolutely epic night! I honestly had not expected that success and it was fantastic to see the team work and everything being in sync.
Thursday will be ultraxion….let’s see how we go then hey? Wish us luck!

I finally did a completely painless LFR yesterday !!!!!
I scored a chest tier token and then discovered that I had enough vp with that and my heroic runs to get another upgrade so I grabbed the ring. I will have to wait until next Tuesday now to run it all again but I am happy it has boosted my ilevel to 382 now I think.
So a couple more weeks in heroics and LFR and I should be good.
I am tempted to start running my pally through LFR but in all honesty I am just too chicken.
We are on guild break until the 9th so that is why I have been playing SWTOR and just vegging out.
I also got my archy maxed today finally!!!!!! So I am going to do my best to discover the damn raptor mount and pet and the vial of sands!!! One day
