Yes, this is a bit of a cop-out post.
But I told you this would happen while I’m working on this project at work!
Actually got a 25-man raid off the group last night with all guildmembers.
Took out 25-man ToCr with only 3 wipes – 2 on beasts and 1 on Anub.
No hunter with Tranq shot (Pie, Spliff, we missed you!) and a couple people were just slow on the MOVE part on Icehowl.
Anub we had an issue with keeping the adds on the ice, the burrows fucked us over and we hit enrage.
Turns out we also had a healer that didn’t *quite* remember the mechanics of phase 3 and panicked a bit as I’m yelling about full fucking raid frames. But we did it.
Twins went much better than last week, but my threat to explain the fight AGAIN might have had something to do with that.
Minimal sharding, I even finally got a boot upgrade, which means I now have to regem. Again.
It was our first night of “real” EPGP and it went smoothly.
Except for my screw up.
I ran an upgrade list for myself for cloaks the other day.
I’m tired of rocking the Naxx 25 cloak off KT. I’ve had it for a looooooong time.
I was in a hurry and just jotted down the names of items that came up as upgrades without really looking at the stats, I have to regem anyway any time I get a new piece.
Maiden’s Adoration drops (and I’m too lazy to go get a link for it), and it was one of the upgrades for me.
I rolled Main Spec and got it.
Someone points out that it has Mp5 on it.
That makes it better for the healers.
Passed it off to one of the healers who had best enjoy his cloak bought with my GP!!!! I expect heals for this!!!!
After that, the weekly raid quest was finally NOT Marrowgar for once, so we stormed Eye of Eternity to kill Malygos.
We had a handful of people that had NEVER been (thankfully we had a 25-key) so I run down the fight real quick.
We get to phase 3 with minimal deaths and we’re looking good on time. This is far and away better than I’m expecting as generally any raid with Maly first-timers gets stuck on each phase transition at least once while people get oriented.
But not us!
Phase 3 starts and we group up and start shooting Maly and then we’re all dismounted and falling and then back on our drakes and then falling and dying WTF.
Nail it perfectly next time without further bugging.
Several people got achievements, now we need to see who is still missing what to get them all Champions of the Frozen Waste. I nominate a certain healer sporting a very nice cloak to do this research. =)
OK, I have got to go to bed and I forgot to eat because we had an officer’s meeting after the raid and I had to load the parse but I’m too tired to eat now and my fridge is broken and I have to get up early…
So I leave you with this:
