Holy Crap! I was having a pretty difficult time on this Anzu look-alike but after a number of attempts here and there, I was in the mood to give him a solid attempt today.
Yikkan Izu – My main issues were missing/getting caught in his screech or being overrun by birds. Then when I managed to get him to 23%, 8% and then 2% (with a few dodgy attempts in between), I knew it was close but I was getting quite antsy because I missed his screech a couple of times. If I wasn’t bubbled, I didn’t fare so well but it also depended on how many birds were up at the time. To be sure I caught his first screech on the next attempt, I slowed my rotation down just waiting for his cast.
This boss can be feared and rooted so I used those to keep at range while silencing his first Disorienting Shriek. Just make sure you don’t get overrun by birds as this can happen very quickly if you’re not careful. Killing more than five will enrage him but he is still killable if you are on the ball.
Akama – This was an easy fight for a shadow priest. Roots and fears work like a charm so not much else to say for this one as I one-shot him.
Smash Hoofstomp – This was another one-shot fight, even with two gnomes sitting on his shoulders. I only killed one but noticed a considerable damage increase to Smash so to make the fight faster, I should have killed the second goblin too. Fear and roots also work.
Unguloxx – I didn’t think there was much to this boss until I realised he could hit you for about 30-60K in melee. Again just keep him at range with root and fear and you’ll have him in the bag.
Beating all four meant a new achievement, a new rank and a Brawler’s Pass.
Now on to rank 7… Eek!
I’ve been wanting to complete a number of these achievements for a such a long time that I decided to have a look at the more doable ones. Attention to Detail was definitely one of them so Cool and I headed out to try it.
Turns out it was super easy so we were going to try School’s Out Forever but it couldn’t be completed with a partial group.
The next day I noticed Bomberman in my log so we flew over to the Gate of the Setting Sun to complete it.
This was another easy one which gave me the achievement before we even killed the boss. Before we left I checked to see if there were any more and noticed Conscriptinator. The most time consuming thing about it was to work our way to the mobs (which didn’t take too long at all).
Ah, it feels great to get another three out of the way. I think I’m in the mood for some Brawlers….
As I was looking through my blog dashboard, I noticed a referral link from Anoukisse so I went to check it out. She was talking about an addon created by Aelo (the author of Mogit) called MogIt Armory in which she happened to be featured. It was only then that I noticed that Cymre was in the image too, as well as a number of other familiar bloggers.
I admit I was flattered and intrigued so I logged out to try it. The addon was designed to offer mogging enthusiasts some inspiration, as it incorporates over 11, 000 player templates who were randomly selected from the armory.
I had a quick look to see what other people had mogged and found a lot of similarities to the one I had designed around the Robes of the Guardian Saint – the most popular mog from my Armed and Dangerous series.
So the next time you’re on Curse, why not check it out. You may just find yourself staring back at you.
