This is really just a random squee post. I had such a good night last night and I wanted to share.
First up was our Tuesday night raid, on which I am the Raid Leader. We got our group together neatly by first pull time, with only a couple of people to cut. (Tuesday is usually the hardest night to form, because we’ll get 32-35 people showing up. On Thursday and Sunday, when we’re wiping on stuff, suddenly people don’t turn out. Funny that. I keep lists.) We took a while to get started because we had to sort out some folks for a new strategy we were trying on Flame Leviathan, but once we got rolling it was easy city. We downed FL+2 in one with only a couple of deaths, so it was a marked improvement over the previous week. We then proceeded to knock off XT-002, which finally dropped Twisted Visage for our guild leader, Kologarn and Iron Council, each of which dropped wishlist items for folks….including me! I got the Iron-bound Mantle to replace my last piece of T7.5, and next week I’ll have the badges to get the helm and complete my 4pc bonus on T8.5.
As we were heading into IC, we got the news that the Alliance had managed to capture Lake Wintergrasp, so we downed the big trio and proceeded portal out to Dalaran to get our weekly guild clear of VoA done. The other hunter in the raid grabbed his T8.5 gloves as a result.
Though it was only 11:30, there really wasn’t time to do anything else, so we called it there. I went and got my new shoulders properly enchanted by the Son of Hodir, and checked to see what my guildies were up to. Seeing several folks in Slave Pens, I volunteered my daily Ahune summon to anyone who wanted it, and ended up duoing it with our chief ret paladin for just my one attempt (He’d just wrapped up about 4-5 attempts with someone else, who was going to bed.) We knocked him down easily and….the pet dropped, I won the roll, and I now has a Scorchling! *happy dance*
I’ve promised the pally I’ll keep going back with him in the hopes it will drop for him too. But what a great night of WoW!
It’s great to see you happy…. about anything.
May I just say though, sans offense, that this sounds like a Geek version of a guy relating the excitement of a really hot championship basketball or football game. Hee hee. 🙂
*laugh* It was actually intended to be posted to a community where the people reading it would have had a much greater idea what I was babbling about. 🙂
I read this in that community and here, but this all makes perfect sense to me. 😉
Congrats on teh Scorchling!
*grin* Thanks. I’m terribly pleased, because I’d not had time to really *work* for the thing, and so I had resigned myself to likely not getting one. 🙂
Oooh, awesome. Makes me think about getting back into raiding… maybe, once I get the work computer, so I can play WoW while I’m at work, so I can get some playtime on my main. Maybe. c.c Glad you had such a good time with it!
Raiding is mostly what I do anymore, though I’m starting to gear up my paladin for heals now that he’s 80, and that may be a fun project.
Where do you play? (And which side?)
My main is Hordeside (tauren hunter) on Thorium Brotherhood; the alt I’ve been playing most recently is a draenei DK on Moon Guard, but that’s solely for solo entertainment -- I’m not planning on ever instancing or raiding or anything with her. I’m thinking, once 3.2 comes out, of going back to ThoBro to level my tauren druid; I think I’ll have more fun taking her into instances and raids than I have been with my hunter. I love my hunter, but I just feel so burned out on playing her, y’know? :/
I suppose. I still love my hunter, but he’s the one I raid with. I’ve just gotten my pally to 80 and am equipping him out to be a healer, but that’s not really my focus. My various other alts are attached to specific groups and don’t play more than every week or so.
I have a single horde alt of note, a 53 Warlock on Earthen Ring. But I haven’t touched her since September of last year.
I always enjoy hearing about others WoW adventures. I have been WoW starved the last few weeks due way too much to do. I only get about 1 hour in the evening when all is said and done. Hopefully after this month is done, I will be able to play a bit longer and get back into some of the instances I have not visited yet.
Keep the game posts comming
I’ll try. If you’re on Twitter, I actually have a WoW account there: TGCPryderi.
While this was a mis-post, I’m glad people on my friends list found it entertaining. 🙂
Out of curiosity, what server are you on? (And which faction?)
