Sindragosa 3rd Phase…

yes, this is still a problem….

We got Blood queen down last night after about 3 attempts I think? Might have been 4…so not quite there, we are still having too many people dying right towards the end…bad timing on our part with the DPS I think and her air phases….

So we went to Sind, had a few attempts and got smashed every time.

We are trying something new for us though and that is tanking her parallel to the staircase.   That seemed to be going much better than any other attempts we also tried having 1 tank, 2 healers and just bburning her in the last phase, but I am undecided if that worked better or worse 😀

So we have all of Monday night to work on her, with everyone on the stairs and pew pewing it seemed to make it a lot easier, I have no idea why but it seemed to work for us.

We are thinking of extendeding the lockout for the first time this week, but the appealing thing is we knocked over 9 bosses and the ICC weekly in one night, it’s a lot of badges…24 or something I think we worked out…but I am not so sure 24 badges makes up for killing Sind 🙂 hehhehe  but then I am a sadist 🙂

I just want her down this reset!!  If we kill her then we will likely defiantly extened the lockout this week I think so we can go and definately have a look at LK 🙂 o.O  to be 11/12!!!  LOL

Tonight was a great run.

We went into ICC and cleared 9 bosses in one night…all one shot – except for princes, we are not sure what happened, but the hunter tank dropped before you could blink, we think it may have been a flaming ball of death!

It was a very good run, most of the gear was taken as offset for people which is a great sign we may finally be hitting the upper ends of gear in 10 man ICC.  That, and the same pieces are always dropping and therefore not actually being taken.

I equipped my wand from Blood Queen (last week, I forgot to put it on) and I also got my exalted ring, which I need to whack a gem into…might go haste I think!

We are going back in to do the Queen again and then get Sindragosa down, yes she will go down this week – if not tomorrow.

Tonight, however a serious of events set me off mentally, that by the end of the raid, I was fucking angry, so much so, I barely spoke on vents and as soon as the raid was called I jumped off vents and offline with not a word.  Had I not done this I am pretty sure when I had opened my mouth to say goodbye I would have said something very regrettable.

As it is I am likely to want to make snarky comments to the guild about a few things for the next couple of weeks and am just going to have to curb that want.

To be honest I am not entirely sure why I got so annoyed, but I think it has something to do with people not wanting to try anything out of the realms of normality.  If it hasn’t been done before, we can pretty much rest assured that like fuck anyone in my guild will want to try it.  God forbid we do something DIFFERENT – never mind that I have attempted this exact thing previously and it served its purpose nicely, in the end we never needed to actually implement it officially, due to changes in roster.

I think after re-reading that paragraph, what annoys me is that it shifts from what the guild needs or things that may make the guild improve, to what is not beneficial for the individual. 

I want nothing more than to run as frost,  but from a DPS perspective, they are pretty bad in a raiding environment,  so I stick to arcane and may even try fire as my hit is so over the top now as to pull it off.   That’s beside the point,  what I think about is the guild, and if the idea will help the guild surely some support from someone to even attempt it would be better than flat out refusal and mockery?  I am sure (let’s try and think positive hey) that my guildies were not deliberating trying to make me feel awful and like a fucking idiot for suggesting we TRY something 🙂  I am sure.

Anyway it doesn’t matter,  I told all the people having a go to just forget about it, we would just do whatever was easiest for people to deal with.  Some times you just have to shut up, smile and nod your head. 

The other things that got on my goat will have to be addressed in some form in the next couple of weeks, but for the minute I can’t be bothered even thinking about it, just gets me worked up again and I would rather not if I am going to raid tonight.

Enough of that, I am over it now….nice to vent sometimes – just get things off my chest and hence why I blog really 🙂

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!

POWA!!!!

After spending a few hundred dollars and regemming some of my gear – I am now sitting pretty on 3008 Spell damage!!!  When i self buff with Arc Int it goes up to 3018 😀  That does not include potions/food, raid buffs!!!

AM SOOOO EXCITED!!?!?!?!!?!?

Will be cool to see if it makes any difference to my raiding.  I also ditched thwe Maghari’s Staff for the Frost needle with Scourgelord’s Baton, so that bumped up my stats huge amounts.  The only problem is I am now sitting on 462 hit rating!!  So I am going to make very sure the next piece of gear I take does not have hit on it…I may just scream to be honest!!

Well at atleast for us she is,we have no spent 2 weeks screwing up on the third phase.

By that I mean, some people are finding the concept hard to stand in a group until the ice tomb hits.

We were starting to see it come together last night, but still far too many people were running around like headless chooks.  i think it may be time for me to crack out the highlighters and set them all straight on how to do it……LOL I may have to use pc paint though as I have not unpacked everything as yet.

Having major issues with our healing department at the moment, and to be honest I am at the end of my tether – friendships aside I am sick of the complaints about a specific person and so it may just be time to tell her how it is again.  I am however in the middle of trying to sort out our house settlement – three weeks late mind you and we are MAYBE going to have it all sorted on Thursday – so at the moment, I am not in any frame of mind to tell people they are not able to raid with us anymore…I am liable to just be nasty if questioned and I don’t think that is a  good place for any Guild leader to be in….I wonder why I have other guild leaders at all sometimes, but again I am just being nasty, so….grrrrrrrr!!!!

Maybe next week will be our lucky break – and then we can start working on the Blood Queen and Lich King…so damn close if we get Sind down 🙂  and we were getting her to like 20%…..so not far off to be honest.

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……

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 🙂
