Looking Up

After weeks of farming the Throne of Thunder raid, my off-hand finally dropped from the Iron Qon. I had been using a 516 staff that came from my first heroic scenario bag but I decided to use that for my shadow weapon instead. The off-hand I had at the time left a lot to be desired so going from a 476 to a 502 item was a welcome change. I also managed to get Torall, Rod of the Shattered Throne last week so it made a nice set.

Then after my experience with the Celestial Blessings scenario a week ago, I decided to go into the raid as Disc and was pleased to see myself getting back into the swing of things. For a while I was switching my focus between haste, mastery and crit because I couldn’t quite find what was right for me. As I said before, I’ve been playing a lot more shadow these days but after today, I’m feeling a bit better about the state of things.

Straight after the raid, we headed over to Ulduar with one fragment drop from FL. Cat Lady also dropped the mace I’ve been eyeing so it turned out to be a pretty special day.

Looking forward to seeing what tomorrow brings.

  1. I love your upbeat attitude. I have found that I get a little cranky over slow weapon drops, and you remind me that patience is a virtue. Or at least certainly nicer to read! Congratulations!

    • Yes, I still remember reading about your predicament. It’s always a little funny when you use your extra roll and you end up with something you have or two of the same thing at the same time. I ended up getting another Torall mace today :P

  2. Yay shinies! Gratz!

    I am still waiting to see an off-hand! My Shaman can’t get a shield either. I gave up on both. My Priest gemmed and chanted an LFR staff that had been sitting in the bank and I won a staff in N ToT for my Shaman, though I would prefer a one-hand and a shield. (Mostly for mogging purposes >.>) I am not going to hold my breath!

    • Best of luck with your items. There’s also a trinket I would like to get from Lei shen.

  4. For a post called “Looking Up”, why has there been no comment that the last picture is obviously looking down.

    Not that it’s pessimistic. Well, maybe for Auriaya, but she’s clearly looking up at the camera.

    Okay, this got confusing but you still get full Gratz!

    • LOL you have a point. Maybe I should have called it “Things are looking up” but I’m not a fan of long(ish) titles.
