When Cool decided to collect his Tier 8 set from ULD10, I was happy to help although killing the bosses on normal wasn’t much of a challenge so by the time we reached Kologarn, I suggested we try some achievements.

While we focussed on Kologarn’s torso for one achievement, I assumed we’d need to come back for the other so I was a little surprised to get both.

With-Open-Arms

Getting Cold in Here was the only one I didn’t have for Hodir. I normally jump up and down for this one on 25 (or run around) but it was easier than I thought and I didn’t have to dispel once.

Cool suggested we try Lumberjacked first since you don’t need to be in combat with Freya. We just cleared the room before Cool kited two of the Elders to a central spot while I body pulled the third.

Lumberjacked

Deforestation requires Freya to summon two sets of adds so it was just a matter of time before we had the six we needed.

Thorim was the only fight we did on heroic, so Who Needs Bloodlust? proved quite difficult. I managed to MC a Warbringer but I kept getting hit or interrupted before I could buff myself. Shadowdodger is another one we’ll have to try again.

Alone in the Darkness was easy (even with no keepers) meaning we were able to collect the three easier ones automatically – although I’m not entirely sure which ones we had before today.

I don’t normally step inside Yogg’s mind but it appears I’ve done it once before (at least on 10) so I’ll be able to complete In His House He Waits Dreaming very soon. Sadly, Cool only managed to collect one of the pali pieces he needed but there’s always next week. I did manage to get my shoulders though.
