My first video :D

This is my first attempt at video for my guild recent Blood Queen kill 🙂

Yes I did say first attempt, so be gentle with me 🙂  I am sure I will improve with more practice!

Blood Queen killed

It’s amazing what can happen with a little focus and effort 🙂  We had never seen blood queen before, but I was adamant on the train home tonight, that we could kill her tonight.

And so we did!

Our first attempt we got her to 20% – sheer lukc I think, then we just kept dying at about the 50% mark, just silly things really, lack of communication etc….we had one attempt where she was at 1% – SO of COURSE we decided to go again….and we got her…..was a little messy, but in all honesty I think that is a messy fight by nature that people get Mind controlled etc.

But my guys did realy well, they all listened they paid attention, they suggested things quickly and briefly and we spanked her!

Wednesday we shoudl be able to clear the usuals suspetcs then perhaps spend Thursday getting Sidnragosa down, as I honestly believe we are pretty darn close to getting her done….

We are 10/12 of ICC ! I am excited!  I may see the lich king dead in a couple of weeks!

More firsts for my magey :D

Last night in ICC I got to see Dreamwalker, Professor and blood princes all killed for the first time.

Aside from a little issues on Professor as one of our tanks learnt how to drive the Abom (we normally have a dps do it), it was a good night, was a little messy in some spots, but to be honest we have only recently managed to start actually killing the bosses and So far – Professor sucks the life out of me…he is the most HORRIBLE fight I have ever seen!!

I cannot really express how much I hate it.

I love the blood prices fight – that is one of my favourites i think.  Sindragosa is also shaping up to be a fav, we tried that a couple of times last night as well, and I got made into a tomb at one point – I was excited by that. When I was in the tomb I couldn’t scroll my camera out to watch everything else going on , it was like I was actually in the tomb….WAS SUPER!!  LOL  Yes ok stupid I know but I get little joys like that almost every time I raid 🙂

It was a mail drop night last night with most pieces being sharded 😦 but that is a good sign I guess.

All in all was a good night I think, with some real evidence that our current raiding team is the fucking shit. We may not spend all that much time actually raiding, but OMG we do a good job with the small time we do have.

Went into ICC 10 for the first time in a very long time and it was caster drop night 🙂

I scored four pieces, three actual gear pieces – which are upgrades on my ilvl 232 gear and then 2 weapons…one was as word – can’t remember the name of and the other was the Staff that does the Cadavaer 🙂 I wanted it just for coolnees purposes – it is comparable to what I am currently using nut so much more awesome 😀  One piece was a frosty chest piece to replace my Merlin’s robes, so although they are nice robes – I want better 🙂  So all and all an awesome night for my gear score, but a terrible night for my coin purse!

We did first 4 then fester and Rot – did the raid weekly and then went and attempted Professor – spent the night wiping, our healing wasn’t up to it.  Sadly one healer can’t do that fight – although they gave it a fucking awesome attempt.  Yes we actually had two healers but the second healer is not really up to the challenge of hard fights…..but having said that neither of them had healed that figth before from what I am told 🙂  They generally DPSed it, so perhaps that was a factor.

I now have to gem and enchant – 3 pieces of gear – need to convert my badges to heroic and buy some today and figure out what gems I am going to use 😀

The guild drama seems to be forgotten about now, and I am trying to field questions about where I want the guild to go come Cataclysm, I was planning on going for 25mans’ but with the changes I don’t really see the point now, and we do have a very very good core of people to choose from now, barring 2 people, so currently I am in a state of confusion and need to sit down and read as much as I can about Cataclysm before I make a decision……

Another day another headache

So we have lost one guild member to the recent raid time issues, he has been with us since the days of Kara, and will be keeping a toon with us for chatting etc 🙂

He basically apologised for being selfish…and was very amicable about it, however I am unsure why it has even come to this as we are keepingthe raid times in a suitable window…

Anyway we may yet lose another person to the same thing, 2 DPS in one night – I feel like Matticus at the moment 🙂 heeheh

Onward and upward as I always say – let’s see how this pans out and what becomes of the broken hearted.

Blood Princes !!! 9/12 now :D

Can you believe it!!  We are now 9/12 now!!

Only a couple more to go and We will be seeing the Lich King!!!

From the info I was given the guildies spent about 3 hours learning the fight and getting them to 4% on their last shot the other night, so they went back in and ONE SHOT THEM!!  They also 2 shot Professor only having killed him last week for the first time.

So in true fashion they always manage to repeat the kill once it has been done…just getting to that first one is sometimes painful.

I am so very proud of them and I am sad that I missed all the first kills!!  But at least they are doing it, that is the main thing.

Not sure they even need me now they are kicking butt!!  LOL  they may decide I am not good enough anymore!!  ROFLMAO!  (I Laugh because I know I will suck when i get back!)

Anyway!! GOOO GUILDIES!!!!!  Cheer Cheer cheer!!!

8/12 ICC – Putricide dead!

My guildies finally killed Professor putricide last night! YAY!! Can’t really explain how excited I am for them!

This is a very good thing – a major boost for their morale I would say! They were getting closer every week, just lacking some DPS in most cases, but they were getting consistent 15% last week, then the last few nights on him was 4%, then 3% then 2% and well you get the picture, close every time just no cheddar.

I would ask them for a blow by blow event description, but honestly they suck at describing it and I really want videos of these things! I might start getting them to video the damn things. I know I am going to video any boss fights from now on, once I get my new pc and all should be a cakewalk for it to handle the pressure 😀

I just really wish I was there, seeing new kills is all I live for, I really enjoy the fact that it takes a few shots to kill new bosses, it would be over too quickly if we walked in and walked out. The excitement builds every week as you get closer and closer to the kill 😀 (starting to sound like an orgasm doesn’t it?!?! LOL)

Anyway I am very proud of them, this has been a long hard road and hopefully will life out guild position a little bit and raise our profile somewhat for the 25 mans they are going to try and start running, it will be a very good boost to be able to say we are 8/12 in ICC 🙂

Guild makes me want to cry!!!

The 1 month I am not online is the month they FINALLY decide to start doing some hardmodes and achievement runs in Uld/TOC – I could kill them!!!

Apparently we have jumped from 69th to about 53rd or something in the last 2 weeks, which is kind of cool 🙂

I am glad they are managing to get some achievements done, good to see them working together 😀

I am suffering some major withdrawals, I know everyone says that, but I am seriously suffering, I keep thinking of different areas in the game I want to just ride through, or places I enjoyed whilst levelling, and just a general buzz when I think of the game…I am pathetic I know…but I just can’t help it!!

My hubby has basically given the game away I think, he is pretty much over it, still enjoy it too much to want to quit, so I will be bringing my pally to the alliance side and should hubby decide to take up the game again after Cataclysm I will switch a toon hordeside again.

I wish we could get more information about Cata!! I really want to learn more about the guild achievements and I want to knwo what to expect and if a guild restructure can occur perhaps, I really want to get into 25 mans for Cata….either this guild or join another….I want to be at the forefront of raiding – I am not meaning server firsts – but I am sick of being last to be raid ready….that’s just me being selfish though 😀

Anyway only 3 weeks to go then I should be back online!!! THREE WEEKS!!!! SQUEEEE!!! I hate moving!!! am just on the last leg of packing – will be starting the entire cleaning process this week and planning for our new PC’s 🙂 mmmmmm New computers that can let me have my details settings on high and let me not drop below 65 fps in Dalaran – yes that is my aim!!

AND OMG I can do my UI again and have it the way I want it – with sexymap running and mmm, so many other little gems!! God I am getting more excited about my new computer than anything else at the moment 🙂 !!!

Yes, I am a sap :S

As per the title, I know it…I really do 🙂 But today an old guildie of mine, signed up on our forums and wants to move a toon over to just hang out with us. I am excited and happy and excited…did I say that already?

I have missed so many of my guildies that have, over the years been left behind with the server moves, sometimes I wish I could have them all back again and we coudl just be having fun like we used to, but I got burned by a few things and didn’t stand up for what I believed in….

Anyway, I am just excited he is back 🙂

Are you a selfish guildie?

A few of my guildies and I have been discussing lately the selfishness that appears to be virulent our guild at the moment.

I have always tried to put the guild before my own wants in the game, I expect any guild leaders would do the same. I think about what will make the guild better overall and not about what loot I can get from what place. Yes I know I have BiS gear – but I don’t care if I get it or not first or before everyone else. I don’t care about my GS – it doesn’t say whether I can play or whether I can stand out of the fire, I don’t care about the couple of pixels that boost my spell power by 12 for a few weeks…..none of that will make a difference if we are unable to recruit people to the guild who can play.

Recently it was advised to me, that no one wants to do anything else but ICC, they don’t want to finish Uld (we got to Yogg just as ICC came out), no one wants to finish TOGC (We have Anub left with 43 wipes available), everyone wants to focus on ICC and spend all their time in there and do nothing but it.

Now, I am all for that if you are in a guild that is more progressed than us and has a stellar group of people to work with , they were probably clearing all the content within 2 weeks and so have been farming it ever since and doing hardmodes etc, but we are not that kind of guild. We still have gear upgrades and skills which could be learnt in those older encounters – but apparently not according to a couple of people – who, for your reference, spend all their time in game and so can pug 25 mans whenever they feel like it – therefore no they probably don’t need upgrades.

The rest of us plebs who don’t have as much game time DO need upgrades from TOGC and heroic modes etc, but our needs are invalid.

So I went to my Shadow council and ask their opinion and was told I was in fact being misinformed, that many people do need upgrades from other places.

I should point out that my mates are the type who have changed toons for the guild, have changed specs, for the guild, have picked up two sets of gear to be raid ready and are always offering to be whatever the guild needs – they don’t take gear unless shoved down their throats, they don’t whinge about gear, the don’t whinge about progression (ie which place we go), they are the type of guildies that make it a worthwhile guild.

But why is it all about the gear – killing the next boss in ICC is so much harder if all the people in the guild don’t have the gear from the previous level. All i want is for people to play well and then think of the guild getting upgrades and not themselves.

Cataclysm will either make or break that mentality with the whole guild achievements 🙂 I can’t wait for that – I may actually be able to be part of a guild that is like the majority of us. Good players, who put guild first and have fun with each other.
