It’s been a while since I tried to do a dungeon achievement but with three left for Cataclysm, this was one I was missing. When Arv asked if I wanted to do a dungeon earlier I didn’t even know achievements were on the agenda. We ended up doing Well of Eternity and End Time, although there was a bit of a hiccup at the second crystal as no one clicked the first one and poor Illidan was left twiddling his thumbs for a while. So I went back to set it off and Illidan was on his way again. I think Arv was right when he said they weren’t ready for Mists :P
When someone suggested Lazy Eye, all I could think was I wish Cool was here. It’s been one we’ve been talking about doing for a while. We didn’t get it but when the time came to do Sylvanas, another suggestion was made at the achievement. This is where I mentioned Coolidge. Two of our DPS’ers offered to drop for him but I said he wasn’t home yet. It was a sweet offer but I would have been the one to drop if anybody and try it at a later date – even though I love achievements.
Now we just have to do it again for Cool! Arv and Slice both offered to help with this so that’s excellent. It was great to meet a few more of the SR crew – Fayle, Adoe and Lyss. Plus, it’s always nice to hear when someone enjoys your blog. :)
They all managed to get quite a few achievements from our three runs which included the bear from ZA. I must admit that I had a bit of mixed emotions when it came to my achievement but it was great to actually see my achievement count moving again. It’s been too long. :P
Oh and I finally managed to get the Scepter of Azshara.
I must say that we haven’t had a Guild achievement for a while but this one was a nice surprise. When I logged in after the Patch on Wednesday, I noticed that amongst the personal and account achievements I received, there was this one.
It’s not so much that we have the achievement but just look how far we are over the quota? :P
I love Archaeology, but all the professions in Pandaria are all kind of fun, especially when you don’t need to equip any tools like a fishing pole for other professions. :)
Ok well, I guess it’s not good to feel too cocky when going into a low level dungeon. After yesterday’s fiasco, I wasn’t even going to mention the Reinforced Targets in Scarlet Halls except that Cool make a passing remark about them which made me play coy. When we got to Houndmaster Braun I decided to go ahead and clear the path while Cool went ahead and finished the boss. Only about a second after I ran to the wall of men guarding the doorway, I was dead.
I wasn’t sure what had killed me at first, I mean it was a small group of level 21-22′s. But just look at the combat log :P
So take it from me and don’t try and run ahead. When the boss dies, they pretty much disappear.
The rest of the instance was pretty non-eventful, except for the loot I managed to get. It was the reason we were there in the first place.
Thx Cool for the idea. You really changed my melancholic mood from last night <3
