OMG! After yesterday, I had a good look at my shadow gear and figured I should fix up all my gems, reforges and enchants (at least the cheap ones) – I even switched my gown which was my old Disc chest as I wanted to see what I could gain from every little tweak. It turns out I gained ~3% haste which should help some.
So with several attempts under my belt, I decided to do a bit of research regarding Ixx, reading a few notes and watching a couple of videos. I noticed one video showed his conal attack from an aerial view which I think helped as it looks like a straight line otherwise. In the end I stood right underneath his hitbox so I wouldn’t have as far to run when he casts it. It worked like a charm because I one-shot him today! Woot! I can’t believe it.
Other than that, there wasn’t anything unusual except for the fact that you can use your execute abilities right off the bat since Ixx starts the fight at 20% health.
I had an extra nice surprise when I looked at my friends list and saw that Kamalia was in the Brawler’s Arena too. I was about to PST her asking how hers was going when I noticed she was on a level 1 toon!?!
Wait a minute!
I did a double-take when I saw she was on Dath! She came to watch me fight!! So I whispered her telling her she’d been sprung and told her not to laugh at me since I’m a healer at heart which is how she feels too – this wasn’t our first meeting together though. :)
I’m not quite sure when Kam turned up but she managed to watch my next fight and cheer me on through a couple of attempts at Crush. You can see her above with my gift to her recently :D
Mazhareen – Looks just like one of my favourite rares Loque’nahak who gets stronger when his health gets to ~25%, so I saved my defensive CDs for then.
Beating him meant one thing…
Woot! I have the pet… although it took me a minute to find the vendor who sold him. Just look for Paul North (the Quartermaster) opposite the portal. I mean, who wouldn’t want a Jeeves look-alike with boxing gloves. As Leyton Hewitt would say “Come On!” He also sells the potions and Brawler’s Razor Claws at Rank 8.
Crush – This yeti is kind of glitchy for ranged as I found out on my first attempt – he charged one of the corners and healed back to full. To avoid this, you’ll need to get in melee range after he’s been stunned to stop that from happening. So as long as you can avoid getting hit by his charge, you’ll probably find it’s the first real DPS check – at least that I’ve noticed.
Thx Kam for my surprise visit. Hope you enjoyed the show :P
Now to level up my newest addition :D
After my confident start a few days ago, I was pretty eager to give Fran and Riddoh another try. On the first attempt I was really close having killed Riddoh and was a nitch from killing Fran when the fireballs came down. If you’re lucky, the landmines will be placed around your pet and not you.
King Kulaka: Fear and tendrils worked well against this King Krush look-a-like, not to mention my speedy bubble when he got too close.
Blat – A combination of fears, tendrils and kiting will get this replicating slime down but I tried to do as much damage right off the bat – before there were too many copies of him. Thankfully you can just focus on the original while kiting them around otherwise they will build up a lot of damage on you very quickly.
Sanoriak – First of all Firewall hurts! So interrupt or run out of it ASAP. As usual, fear works on him so I took advantage of that and my fiend to DPS him quickly.
Ixx – The hardest thing about this is fight is getting caught in his Devastating Thrust (which is his only ability) but considering he casts is so often, you really need to be on your toes for this one. Running through him was still getting me killed so I tried standing right underneath him for less running time. He’s also immune to CC so is my bottleneck boss at the moment.
Two more and I can buy the pet. >.<
A while ago, Cool managed to farm his Blood-Soaked Invitation from one of the Alliance rares in Krasarang Wilds. After reaching Rank 7, he gave me his Brawler’s Pass so I could start fighting my way to Rank 4 – but not before earning me The First Rule of Brawler’s Guild.
However, I was feeling some trepidation about doing the fights. Having seen Coolidge and others doing some of them earlier, it seemed easy enough but being more of a healer than a shadow priest, I had my doubts about getting past the first fight, especially in front of an audience.
So today I took the plunge and queued for the very first time. It’s no surprise that these are aimed at DPSers as it seems like a good way to test your situational skills and reaction times but I was intrigued about trying the first fight as Discipline. It didn’t end too well so I switched to Shadow and queued again.
I must say the fight went a lot better earning me the achievement – You Are Not Your $#*@! Legplates.
Bruce: All I had to do was sidestep to avoid his Chomp.
Goredome: I couldn’t believe how easy this one was with his charge really easy to avoid.
Honestly, Rank 1 turned out to be a bit of a blur as I pretty much one-shot the bosses except for my false start on Bruce.
Kirrawk: I needed a practice run on this one but as long as I kept him between his Twisters and me, it was an easy fight – otherwise you’ll be knocked in the air and likely die from his Lightning Flurry (unless you heal/disperse). This fight made me squeal A LOT!
Not bad for a first day, if I don’t say so myself. All-in-all, these were a lot more enjoyable than I’d expected. Thx to Cool for being my constant cheerleader and supporter – letting me know what to expect for each fight beforehand – I think I need to mog a cheerleader set for him. Now I just need to get past this one and the next five so I can get my Clock’em pet :)
