Heroic Morchok Down

 

After a couple of weeks on Heroic Morchok, we can finally say that we have our First Heroic Down after 25 pulls. In previous weeks, we tried healing with three, four and today started off with two for the practice. After several attempts, we managed to get him to around 25%. Further attempts consisted of adding another off healer to the mix. With one of our tanks switching to heals and one of our new members switching to tank, we had another go getting him to 2%!

That’s nothing new for us. The same happened before we had our Madness kill. Our main issues today were knowing when to run in and stay out for crystals with a few moving prematurely; particularly before being healed up and before the stomp. Although on one of the attempts, we had really bad placement with two of the crystals, dropping right next to each other. But with perseverance, we managed to get him down with Coolidge (tanking Morchok), Ðisturbed, Azalpha (soaker), Lafeme and Bogarat on North side. The other group had McVoe (tanking Kohcrom), myself, Zespri, Jabs (soaker) and Norallin. From my point of view, I made good use of my barrier during his furious stage, plus lots of shields and PoH for DA goodness.

Grats to Coolidge for his Hand of Morchok and Zespri for the Petrified Fungal Heart.

Let’s do it again next week ;P

River Boat

If you’ve done the quests in Thousand Needles since the Shattering, you’d probably have completed one of the starting quests, Two If By Boat taking you by canoe from the northern tip of Thousand Needles down to the Shimmering Flats area. Now this is a very fast canoe ride; it took about a minute to reach the other end of the Needles.

When you reach Fizzle & Pozzik’s Speedbarge, you’ll get a quest from Razzeric to build your own river boat, called Down in the Deeps.

Razzeric supplies you with a spare diving helm...

and flippers.

Before long, you’ll be travelling in style in your own river boat. Unfortunately, it’s only usable in Thousand Needles and only built for one person. With all the novelty items in my bags/bank, it would be nice if this could be summoned via spell, like the seahorse but alas, it takes up another spot in my bank.

What a great way to travel while questing in the area

Under the Barge you may even find the hidden room filled with takeaway containers, a calendar and floatie.

Secret hideaway perhaps?

So next time you’re in the area, see if you can find this hidden room.
