I cannot stress how much fun I have been having in LFR!!
In the last few days I have done even more of them and I still have more to go. I was hoping to get to through all of them before reset this week, but couldn’t quite manage it. I admit to being chuffed everytime I finished one a new one would open.
But in all the fights I have done I have only died once due to my own stupidity. I think that proves that a small amount of input and understanding of what you are supposed to be doing can help you immensely. LFR may not be the full blown version but it does show that you can be prepared to do your job well and avoid what needs to be avoided. I ran without mods except for recount just to see where I was sitting, so no omen and no deadly etc, just watching my surroundings and I confess to feeling so good about using my brain and my head to watch for things.
I enjoyed it anyway 🙂 Others will surely disagree.
The one fight that killed me was the boss who summons the purple cloud of death? I was doing ok until that happened and i was down faster than…well faster than someone getting paid to…!!! The raid wiped and we went again and i survived until the second one happened, but since most of the raid had died in the first one, i was happy to have survived. I died with about 5 other people with me. I am feeling no shame about that death!
I didn’t have a clue on the hydra boss, the strat said something about using ice to kill fire but i never got a buff or debuff…so i just followed the crowd when the head died. I felt a bit ‘meh’ about that one.
I cant remember the other ones at the moment – thats terrible!!! But overall i was happy with the fights and was loving being back with other people killing stuff!
Hubby is really close to levelling so we can start doing crazy isle together!! Woot woot!!
I spent a little bit if time getting my druid to 88, and so will be getting her to 90 next – deciding is she should stay horde or not.
Wow so much has happened in the last couple of days! So much so that I haven’t been able to post!
My ilevel is now sitting on 355 – yay! It has taken a fair bit of poking around in instances that I don’t ever want to do again! ZG – last boss – I just did not understand the fight – wiped us three times, thankfully it was a guild run and they were very patient with me. It was one of those fights that I just couldn’t figure out what I supposed to do and consequently was doing everything I shouldn’t 🙂 I felt about .5 cms tall….I don’t want to go there ever again!!!
ZA was ok, except the first time I was in there – as a random, the tank decided it was going to be timed but forgot to tell everyone else….consequently he left after 3 minutes because we were still stuffing about near the front 🙂
I didn’t realize until I made comment about it later in guild, that the majority of people just assume it is timed…..stupid assumption if you ask me! There is no way I want to do timed runs yet -I am still wearing blue gear FFS!!!! I did score mojo FINALLY when the guild took me through later on, but once again players just amaze me with their arrogance 🙂
So our guild leader figured we were now geared enough to go raiding with them…so tonight I got to go to blackwing descent, we did 3 bosses and didn’t get the 4th one done due to time restraints…all good though! I was a little disappointed with my DPS -however it was my first time on those bosses and I was still keeping mostly in line with other dps….
The fights are so confusing and there is so much going on that I am not surprised I was confused…I didn’t die in fire, I didn’t get killed, and I even did the gongs!! So all in all I was super proud of myself!
My tailoring is maxed as well now!! Wooot! It took a bucket load longer than I expected it to; but glad it is done, saving for all the recipes now and will just see how long it takes me to get them all. My first aid is also 500 as well so that is really just a few more bandages away 🙂
And….I started a Druid….again…..I never get past level 10, but this one is already level 20! So far so good; but only time will tell – don’t get excited about it yet 🙂
