Alive and Treeing

Long time, no see. Yes, the blog has fallen into disuse as of late. A lot of work with the semester starting up and not much exciting happening in the game for the last couple of weeks of Christmas break. Soon after I posted my resolutions list, I actually achieved a couple of them. Got the shoulder enchant from Aldor. Hit revered with HH this past weekend for the head enchant. We did a guild run of regular SH with one of our warriors warrior who is not prot-specced (he had been for a long time so he knew how to tank, though). I mean, it’s doable, and we did it. And it’s a good lesson in aggro management, but it makes for a long run (especially with no OOC rez). Still, it got me to revered, so all is well that ends well.

As for the raid goals I listed: Guild took a shot at Nalorakk in ZA (still some learning to do there). Not much guild enthusiasm for downing Netherspite; we’ll get him eventually, but it’s not a top priority for us. Had an awesome night where we one-shotted Shade, as well as the other bosses for the night. That was our first one-shot of Aran, too. Prince is still troublesome, but always due to unlucky infernal drops. As long as get good positioning, we can down him, which is what that fight boils down to anyway.

Nightbane is a piece of cake now. Here’s our strategy: We have our caster/ranged group on the side near the door and we send one healer (priest or pally) to the other side to focus on the melee group. This positioning helps tremendously when melee gets feared away from the main ranged group. I stay in the ranged group to throw HOTs on the raid when hit by charred earth. It has worked every time so far (except once when the tank got feared and Nightbane turned toward and hit us with Smoldering Breath).

For fun here’s our WWS report from last night’s Kara run (anonymous, I’m “Mist”). We did some switching in and out of alts so that’s why there are more than ten in the overall chart.

As for other goings on, I’m 3 badges away from the Gnarled Ironwood Pauldrons which I am very much looking forward to getting. Between the stats and the look, I will be very happy to have it.

So, the big goal now it to save up and get epic flight form. The only rep I’m interested in increasing is with Aldor for the next level of shoulder inscription. I don’t care anything about any of the faction mounts. Thus leaving epic flight as the most attractive goal to accomplish.
