Three Steps Closer

A full clear of Dragon Soul yesterday meant we had the whole afternoon to do some old raiding. We were going to see how many turned up to do some Guild credit runs for the older raids but only had seven on so we headed over to Ulduar to do some 25 raiding.

A couple of attempts at Algalon with our partial group of eight proved quite difficult on 25. We eventually had another go with our group of nine getting Algalon down with some new titles for some.

By the time we got to Kologarn we had nine in the raid. One extra person really does make the difference as we breezed through the other bosses pretty quickly; even doing a few on Hard mode. It also helps when one of our healers doesn’t get locked out for the Iron Council fight :P

Ulduar is still one of my favourite raids in the game. The fights were so varied and technical back then. Nowadays, you can pretty much ignore a lot of the strategy involved. There are still a few items I have been coveting in there for transmog purposes but sadly none of those dropped today.

Yogg proved to be too much on 25 so we did set it back to 10 for that. Even with several switcheroos, we managed to clear the place a little past our regular time allocated. Although, I don’t think the few who hadn’t done the fights before minded, as well as the bevy of achievements to go around. The transmog gear was another perk but I have to admit, the most exciting thing for me was that I was three steps closer to getting Val’anyr! This brings my total to seven. I know I have a long way to go but with the help of my friends and Guildies I know it will happen eventually.

Dun Morogh Rares

Dun Morogh is the snowy starting zone for Dwarfs and Gnomes in central Eastern Kingdoms. New players learn the basics of questing by fighting leper gnomes from Gnomeregan as well as safely transporting ale. This zone is reached on foot via a series of elaborate connecting tunnels not found anywhere else in Azeroth.

This zone contains both the capital city of Ironforge and the instance Gnomeregan.

He used to drop the Foreman Vest

Nice looking Hunter pet if you like Wolves

This one was tricky to find as he was not in the cave the first time

This massive beast waits for you at the back of the Grizzled Den

Another Hunter pet option if Bears are more to your liking


Something about Hammerspine seems awfully familiar…


Once upon a time, Hammerspine used to be a level 12 rare trogg located in Gol’Bolar Quarry Mine in Dun Morogh. He is said to be on a 1.5-2.5 hour respawn timer.

The first time I remember killing him with the shot above, I just happened to catch him saying his infamous phrase. Looking back at all my rare shots, this has got to be one of my more interesting ones.

On a trip to see my old nemesis Gibblewilt, I decided to see if I could get another shot with my main. It didn’t take long before he said what I was hoping for.

It appears that he only has a couple of lines to his repertoire. Either that or he has a pretty stubborn streak, as he only managed to blurt out

”It’s time to bash!”

around 10 times or so before he said the magic words. Sheesh! The things you go through just to get a good shot :P
