Because someone was looking for it…
and found me.
Back in the office today so here’s a quick progress report:
ICC was attempted a week or so back, but is too much of a gear check with us not having enough power from the top end to muscle through it.
Trash was cleared and Marrowgar attempted.
We will return.
We’re *usually* able to clear ToCr in an evening with some time to spare.
Last night was the night when it seemed like everyone forgot basic fight mechanics as soon as we got to the Twins.
It was ugly.
After a couple wipes, I decided we needed a refresher.
I explained the fight in a manner that can best be described as a lecture through clenched teeth.
Then, as we were short a few people, I called the raid.
Those bitches are safe for now since we lack the coordination to kill them.
We were a little short on time last week, but we were able to clear through Festergut again.
Abracadaver is mine.
I’ll try to get a picture of the little ghoul thing it can summon.
And yes, those are my T10 shoulders.
Helm too, but it’s hidden so as not to obstruct the glory that is my ponytail.
I do miss my T9 shoulders. They were prettier.
Revered ring from the Ashen Verdict kicks ass.
Poked at Rotface and then couldn’t resist sight-seeing in the new blood wing.
Was expecting frostbolts or void zones from the mini-lich.
Seriously. That’s its attack.
So between laughing hysterically at that and some mob with pally powers and shadowstep and a “wipe the raid” ability, we had a few deaths.
Oh yeah, and someone was turning us into spiders.
We raided smarter not harder and brought out the shackles (love our priests) and managed much better with only half the trash at a time.
We played with the Princes a couple times before we had to call it.
The fight is crazy hectic, with so many things to watch for.
And I got to TANK.
Granted, he just stood there and shot shadowbolts at me, but I was still technically tanking – top of the aggro meter and no one was yelling at me.
Very weird experience.
We’ll regroup and storm the citadel again tomorrow.
We’re in the process of testing out the EPGP loot system and will be rolling that out very shortly.
I spent a looooong time last night writing up the post for the guild on it.
Should be up tonight if I can get the last details hammered out.
It was a tough decision to move away from loot council, but not every “gets” loot council.
There has to be a lot of trust and a lot of belief in the progression of the guild as a whole.
As we move to 25-man content, it’s not always easy to ask 25+ people to keep the “good of the raid” in mind as loot is being shuffled around.
With EPGP we’ll be able to objectively and quantifiably distribute loot – while still rewarding/encouraging good guild progression.
It is way past the time I should have passed out so I’m stopping here. Told you posts would be thin for a few days.
