Sunday raiding - Heroic Hagara down!
I was being a total stresshead at the beginning of raid. I had my mouse, keyboard and network on my new computer, but I had the hard disk space, FRAPS, mods, etc on my old computer. I was rushing home from dinner with the kids to make it for raid because I knew Hagara was going down TODAY.
Mods weren't set up properly, was trying to reconfigure my keys after downloading it on my new computer and Lushnek said just get on your old computer. So I got on my old computer but that crummy keyboard was so horrible! I had lots of misstrokes during typing and was just miserable, and the kids were screaming and fighting and hitting each other, I just was not in a raiding mood! I even typed as much and Roshii screenshotted it while I was ripping keyboards and mice out and plugging it back into my old computer. After a few times I got it right and I was happy.
Poor Souglyy died so many times!!! She was out of range for my healing a lot and so missed out on tranq love. And on our kill attempt Roshii died twice - I think he died once during the ice phase and I can't recall why he died the second time. Ding dong the wicked witch is dead!
|Roshii, your wings are in my face...|
Then on to Heroic Ultraxion which was stuffed up the first time because Gutsy forgot to press the button. Thank goodness I didn't prepot. Voe snickered at me having to DPS but I didn't do TOO horribly. I was bottom, but that's where I expect to be anyway! And at least I didn't stuff up my rotation... Hwired was a bit "wha?" when I asked him if I could do 3rd rotation with Shabadu because that's our normal rotation and Roshii was like "Navi, come on!" because he said it's easy, but you know me! I like to stick to my number, it's the one I was used to (and fortunately Barkhoof was the 2nd rotation which is his normal one too). Second kill was clean, though Voe took Red and Blue which I think was a poor choice, since it would be best for Gutsy to take Red so Voe could take Green and Blue, but that's what he's been used to doing.
Warmaster was... OMG semi messy! Soug really was having a bad day she died twice! Poor thing! It looked like she was rezzed in the shockwave or something but I think she was just unlucky with the shockwaves. Ouch.
And for Spine we did the achievement, so that was pretty cool! Thanks Lushnek for prompting Hwired to do it and making it easy (we did the roll straight after we did the 3rd roll).
On Deathwing we jumped from another platform and so that was another step of my last achievement done, and Roshii noticed and said next time we're doing the one I already have so the rest of them can catch up. I told Fue we should have done it in our raids.... :P
We wiped on Deathwing! We started from Malygos' platform for a change and we worked our way left, and then when we were jumping back to Ysera's platform, Deathwing was in our way! And so all those elementium things were on the other side, and we didn't know if we could jump through or not. We started out on the other platform and then moved over but by then it was too much and we died. OMG. Noobs :) Gutsy was cracking me up because he did almost no healing that time and was sitting on low numbers for a bit while me and Voe laughed and tried to heal lots!
The second time we did it was better, and the interesting thing was that all 3 of us did the same healing! I only snuck ahead at the end because I did a Tranq meter-pad because all the others were doing it! Peer pressure you know :P but I think even without that we were all still practically equal. That was a good feeling. Considering I'm still using 2 391 ilvl items! I don't think my chest is ever going to drop from Ultraxion, and I'll never get it with all those other people in my tier. I might consider buying the Valor chest but it has such rubbish stats...
Roshii the quick fingered opened the chest and went OMG OMG because there was ANOTHER Blazing drake in there! He wanted it so badly, and he rolled a lousy number and Shabadu won it with a 91. I laughed. Shaba, who has no idea about special rare mounts or achievements or rare pets, and doesn't particularly care about it, won it! It was funny. Shaba actually decided to give it to Roshii and Roshii paid him 10k for it which made both parties happy. Roshii was ecstatic and his face was sore from grinning so much. It was a good raid night all round - mounts, achievements and a new boss kill. Yay Frostwolves!
