Long story, but my guild took down Lord Marrowgar without me on Wednesday (my choice to not be there).
They tried Lady Deathwhisper a couple times and had to call it.
I am really proud of these guys for actually pulling in some pugs and getting shit killed.
Bummed that I missed the first kill?
But I’m really happy that they took care of it.
Thursday night I joined back up with them to take on Lady Deathwhisper.
So no sooner than I write a post about not liking fights that require me to just stand in one spot and pewpew, I get assigned to burn the shield on her.
OK, so there is a little movement, she does like to cast Death and Decay on me.
Instead of getting bored, this fight has something going for it that Patchwerk does not.
It is a looooooooooooong fight.
Our kill was 4 seconds shy of enrage.
She enrages at 10 minutes.
So as an arcane mage it was a practical exercise in mana management. For 10 minutes.
I managed to maintain about 4.5k for the duration of all the combined attempts. No innervates and mana tide always gets thrown out at the most random times. I’m sure I’ll do even better next time.
Took 8 tries to get Lady down and then we moved on to the Gunship Battle.
After we goofed off for 5 minutes with the jet packs, we got going.
42 internet cookies to you if you got the reference in the goblin’s name that hands out the jet packs.
FYI – If you move your camera while targeting the jet pack, it’s possible for the green circle to end up on the outside of the ship… and the game will do its damnedest to get you to that location… and you will die when you hit the ground even if you use Slow Fall… not that I would know this from personal experience or anything… moving right along…
I did not get to board the enemy ship, so I didn’t even get to use my jet pack during combat.
I did get to use a cannon once. When both cannons were supposed to be frozen, one bugged and didn’t freeze so I hopped into it. I gotz leet hax. We didn’t win on that attempt anyway…
I don’t know how many attempts it took us, maybe 5 at the most.
Open the shiny treasure chest and out comes the spyglass!
There were two others in the party that were interested in it, another mage that is applying to the guild and the boomkin.
The fluffy featherball suggested that I should get it because I made sure all the other guild members got Onyxia’s head before I did.
So I no longer have a stupid fricking ilevel 200 trinket. This little baby replaced my Abyssal Rune. (Back to RAWR and it’s time for the Black Magic enchant again. /sigh)
We took one swipe at Deathbringer Saurfang, but none of us had really expected to get that far so we just had a very hazy idea of what was going on.
We knew we had to kill the beast things, but we just couldn’t get him below 89% or so.
At that point, we were losing three people so we called it for the evening.
So I’m missing Marrowgar on 10 man, but I’ll be able to pick him up next week. With all the nerfs to him I expect a caboodle of kittens could take him down. /sigh
Ran a couple heroics, had to get my daily, and the last one of the evening was H UP with a full guild run.
