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 :)
