Great, WTF, Lame, Fucking Awesome

Tuesdays we are trying to scrape together enough warm bodies to run 25s and then on Thursdays we try to run 2 sets of 10s.

Tuesday we did manage to get the weekly raid done and clear Trial, but did not have the time to take on the new VoA.

Here’s how Thursday went:

Great:

It took some finagling and a little patience, but we did manage to scrape together enough people to run concurrent 10-man runs.

Not only that, but we were concurrent in IC-fucking-C.

That’s right, two teams in the Citadel at the same time.

The progression team steamrolled through Marrowgar, Lady Deathwhisper, and the Gunship Battle while Team-T (is that what you guys are calling yourself?) took a more leisurely pace.

At the end of the Gunship Battle, my rogue hubby ended up dead.

In the attempt to resurrect him, something went terribly amiss, leading to…

WTF:

He ends up alive, but in the hold of the ship, with no way to get to the deck to meet us on the landing.

We have no warlock to summon him so I suggest he strips and jumps.

Somehow he ends up half-disconnected from the game and in a partially rendered area of the exterior of ICC.

Then the rest of the raid starts experiencing difficulties.

We can communicate with the other raid through various chat channels.

We can watch general chat scrolling by with inane insults.

But we cannot cast spells, move things in our inventory, or even log out properly.

It takes a while, but we finally all end up logged out and back in, with the game having teleported us to our hearthstone locations.

Whatever.

Fly back to ICC.

Aborted. Instance is full.

WHAT?!?!?

It seems the game thought we were still all inside. Can’t have more than 10 people in the 10-man instance so it wouldn’t let us in.

Several tickets are opened.

What to do while we wait for resolution?

We own Wintergrasp, let’s head over to the new VoA boss, Toravon.

I had watched the video earlier in the day and thought the fight looked pretty easy.

But then again, I also thought the Rotface fight didn’t look so bad and we’ve been banging our head on that ooze-pile for how many weeks now?

Get everyone into VoA and commences the…

Lame:

One shot kill.

No deaths.

No effort.

I seriously hope he was tuned incorrectly somehow.

I know we’re a decent group of players and we are well geared and mesh well together and blah blah blah.

Koralon fucking kicked our asses when he first came out. Emalon wasn’t anything to sneeze at.

This guy?

Fucking pushover.

Our achievement popped and we were all just sort of like, “that’s it? really?”

Del did get his T10 gloves (which was not lame).

To continue the lame, a GM contacted Dark/Soth about our broken raid and said we needed to wait 30 minutes and then attempt to re-enter the instance.

That information came as we were about to pull Toravon.

Still had 25+ minutes to spend, so we took down Koralon for some extra Triumph badges and then headed out to Trial of the Crusader.

/set raid difficulty to Heroic

We had a wipe on the beasts due to a wheat thin.

You just had to have been there.

Then we roflstomped the beast encounter.

Pulled Jaraxxus and the MT says, “this is going to be a wipe, I have an emergency”

We’re assuming his kids lived through whatever mischief they were causing because he did eventually return.

By this time we had dicked around for at least 30 minutes.

Fly back to ICC.

Instance full.

Fuckers!

Reset instances.

Instance full.

Reset again, just for good measure.

Woot! Back in business.

Fucking Awesome:

We picked up where we left off.

The Deathbringer Saurfang encounter has been tweaked slightly and having a disc priest is no longer quite the EZ-Mode it was before (we still love you anyway, Slice).

Whereas last week we got him dead before his blood power was over 60 or something ridiculous like that, this week he marked the rogue just as he fell.

Onward and inward.

We were running out of time, but cards fell in our favor.

Trash fell swiftly.

We didn’t even bother flasking since we were on a time crunch and flask supplies are looking low with 2 groups raiding 2 nights a week.

Festergut went boom.

We’ve now 1-shot everything in our path.

Delerius had a good feeling all night and asked that we make one attempt on Rotface.

Sure, why the hell not.

Switched up our strategy a bit and went with 2 healers.

I just checked our parse record – 44 attempts at Rotface since that wing opened.

And here we were just going to waltz in – no flasks, I forgot to pop the ghetto Kings drum – and take him down.

Of course, my parse stopped recording after the disconnect and I forgot to restart it.

But we are now 6/12 in ICC – in 1 raid night with 3 other boss kills from 2 other raids.

    Awesome job!

    Long time reader, first time poster. But for your combat log parser, you might want to check out an addon called LoggerHead. My GF uses it since without it, she constantly forgets to start the log.
