I went on a LBR this morning to Ulduar :)
We started off with barely 10 of us and by the end we had swelled to 20, new people being added every couple of bosses or so. It was pretty enjoyable, slightly scary to start off as JD was “tanking” (he had tank gear on right, that counts???) and all of us were stealing aggro like maniacs, I am surprised we didn’t have more death to be honest. He was a trooper though!!
We killed everything except Yogg and Algalon. Although we gave both of those bosses 1 attempt – I thought we should have given them each another try, given these are LBR people don’t know the fights, they come to them with very little experience and I think it is a little harsh to expect people to do the right thing first time in.
We wiped on FL as we left all the towers up – but I blame the game for that as my buttons could not be used during the fght from about halfway – I don’t remember ever having that issue, so perhaps it was a mechanic I have forgotten, but it seemed a little glitchy to me. We then killed all the towers, or so we thought, and spanked him down with the freezing tower up.
We wiped on Ignis with so much damage going on not surprising really, and I think we only had one healer at that stage – correct me if I am wrong. Then we got a couple more people in and killed him. I spent most of the time in his crotch pot, which was sweaty and disgusting!!!
Razor we smashed out of this world – and killed her before she took off again, XT we killed the heart on and then managed to smack him to bits which was also pretty cool. We killed the council without too much trouble although it was a little messy.
Kologarn we were trying to get the achievement for not killing his arms, but discovered that an unnamed guildie of mine was attacking the right arm instead of the chest, so we managed to kill him, but without the achievement :) We went to Hodir next and managed to get both chests open on that one, I think people got caught in the first flash freeze, ut then after that it was just the NPC’s mainly, so that was pretty good if you ask me, it is one hell of a messy fight! Auriya killed us by accident as we were taking too long in killing some adds, so we came back in and she layed some smack down on our tank – literally one hit wonder- I swear!! We got her on the third attempt as we had a couple of others come in to supplement, and she went down like a sack of potatoes.
Freya got pulled before we were ready, and although we lasted quite a while, it was a little premature – given we left all three extras up for hard mode, so we reset her and then came back in and got her easily without the extra extra adds. That is one hell of a messy fight and never ever ceases to amaze me!! Then we did Thorim and spanked the bejesus out of him not very exciting at all, my guildies main concern was the lack of Jorgmunger at the start :) Mimiron was easy, although I dc’d just as the middle bit started firing at me, and by the time I got back in I was dead in flames!!
I spent most of the fight wanding it up against General Vesax and just sort of doing nothing, then failed miserably on Yogg, I went in and killed the tentacles and then went insane because of the stupid stupid skull sucking insane thing. Algalon, would have gone ok, except we had lost a fair few by then due to lunch, so we called it after the wipe on him.
All in all, I had a very very enjoyable run today, it was nice to just be chilling out and not really paying attention to much except having a laugh. There were so many people getting achivements!! It was amazing, I was so excited for them all to be getting them :)
The most embarrassing moment of course is me telling my hubby that Kerise was Kamalia and I was far too chicken to even talk to her….so he actually SAYS THAT in raid chat!
*embarrasmment crits for 1000000 overkill*
Then when she had to leave I got this whisper, and the coolest thing I could think of to say back…..was with a smiley face….seriously!??!!? I suck!
There were a few other bloggers in there that I was all excited to see the names of, but I couldn’t bring up the courage to chat to them privately so I just stuck to chatting in raid chat :)
