This afternoon I had an opportunity to do some Flex raiding thanks to Arvash. At first I thought it was a guild run but as soon as I entered I realised it wasn’t. Luckily I recognised a few names so it was nice to receive a warm welcome from both Rep and Arv.
I missed out on Galakras but managed to do the other three in the Gates of Retribution. Thankfully the fights went pretty smoothly and we even managed to complete Rescue Raiders during the Dark Shaman fight – an achievement I thought we had failed due to an overzealous raider. I was particularly excited to get Gamon Will Save Us! as I never thought I’d have an opportunity with just LFR this expansion.
By the time General Nazgrim died we lost a few to sleep but soldiered on after a short AFK break. Malkorok turned out to be another story after wiping several times to one thing or another so we called it a day before promising to return another time. Cool thinks I’ve become soft since I kept dying on Malkorok. It always seemed to happen when I was running to a safe zone. I even tried healing for one or two attempts but it became too late for several more people.
Not too bad for a couple of achievements and I even got to meet a reader of the blog :)
