A couple of days ago I told you about my trip into Ulduar as a furry beast. This time, it was back to normal with a bit of a different agenda. Since we didn’t need anything from Ignis or Razorscale we skipped them, working our way a little bit further than last time.
Once again here’s a quick pictorial of our kills.
As we waited for Auriaya to come back around, I took the opportunity to take a few pics and going back to Disc for the fight.
I spy with my little eye…
Heading towards Hodir, I had a brief incident with a pack of worms proving one snow mound can still be detrimental to one’s health. Cool managed to join me afterwards and made quick work of them. I initially tried Hodir as Disc but we managed to hit his enrage timer so I ended up going shadow again which resulted in his demise.
We ended the raid with a new mace for myself and a shield for Cool.
A little bit later, I headed over to Kara to try and farm my belt again (since I traded it in for a free slot a while ago).
While we waited for the Big Bad Wolf, I took a shot of our new toys.
Unfortunately, no luck with the belt today so I guess I’ll be back next week.
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
Madness of Deathwing
It would be fair to say there were a few mishaps yesterday. The major one was starting the raid on 25 when it should have been set to 10. Hmm, I thought the Morchok fight seemed to be taking a long time. BTW, our new perk of ‘The Quick and the Dead’ (esp. the when you’re dead part) is such an added convenience. After the rectification, we managed to clear up to Blackhorn, two-healing all but one of the bosses. Due to some connection issues and latency, our Blackhorn attempts were kind of messy. Our kill actually came with me going Shadow to add to the ranged DPS. It seemed to help some but it became really hairy when we lost a healer and I could see Zes was running on empty towards the end of the fight. So with a well timed Hymn of Hope followed by a Divine Hymn to help out, we managed to get the kill we needed. Phew!
Unfortunately today, we had an hour wait before we could zone in for the last two encounters. Not surprisingly, we were itching to get in there since we had a long overdue appointment on Madness; last week getting him to 2% and all. Thankfully a friend of ours logged in, meaning we could finally get under way. We managed to have a pretty smooth run for Spine moving onto Madness after a short intermission. Being down a tank, we were able to get one of our raiders to switch in theirs – Thanks Nok.
The most surprising thing was, the fight we had yet to master, ran like clockwork. It was so smooth, in fact, that we one-shot the last encounter of Dragon Soul. Finally making us 8/8!
Congrats all, now to start working on Heroics…
