Arena Achievement!

Boy was I lucky on Saturday! I did some 2v2 with Sev and after a disastrous 1st game (I think we lost 16 points) we got Hot Streak! I didn't want to say anything as we got to 8 games thinking it will jinx us and when we were at 9 games I was really anxious! We still didn't say anything and when we got them down (there was a close moment in that game too!) and got the achievement Sev said woot! and I said WOOOOT. Made it to 1400 and 1500 respectively so we both got to buy some new gear.  Then the next game we got a lock and disc priest and we lost.

It was 3 min till WG and Sev queued us for a game and we got in and I said to Sev, do you think we could do WG after this game? To which he replied as long as it wasn't a 45 minute game...

... it only turned out to be a 30 minute game.  And poor Sev got so cold he was actually standing up playing and jumping around to warm up.  And his hands were numb, so he said he was hitting the wrong keys.  We were playing against a mage and a disc priest.  Now I would have thought that Sev could handle the disc priest on his own so I basically was kiting the mage around and around. But the priest kept drinking!  I thought maybe it was becaues Bheetom was being slowed by the mage... but I've decided to blame it on Sev and his numb fingers.  I figured out I should focus the priest and when they're casting mana burn I just bear form.  Why I didn't do that earlier I don't know but made it so easy!  And then I stuffed it up at the end trying to get from the door to the coffin (we were in UC arena) and I was blasted by the mage and priest and Sev was sheeped so he couldn't help me and I had used all my CD and I died :(

And WG was over by the time we got out.

Oops! Sindragosa 25 down on 13 June!

Oops totally forgot that we finally got Sindragosa down on 13 June for the first time. Yay!  The cool thing was the week after that we one shotted it and Moopie was on his Frostmourne blade quest and he had to go and get some Frost breaths and asked me to make sure he got healed... I was thinking to myself why bother we're gonna die anyway!  And amazingly we one shotted it!!!

So Moo was a happy cow and is now up to collecting shards.  At least his shard drop rate is better than my mace shard drop rate.  I wish I did more Ulduar so I could get my weapon.  Oh well!

First look at 25 man hardmodes in ICC

Well with 2 guildies getting carried through 25 man LK we managed to open up hardmodes so we can try them.  We attempted Marrowgar.. ouch!  And that didn't go too well.  But we did Gunship which didn't seem all that different from normal and another abacus dropped which Melfina got.  Nice! Heroic abacus.

Then we went to Dreamwalker and Sindragosa and Sindy wasn't so bad, felt like it was a lot better than last time.  People are starting to get the hang of doing it on 25 but phase 2 is the hard bit and getting everyone coordinated is hard.  Of course I did some dumb things and blew myself up.  But I think 22% was the closest we got.  Still got a long way to go if you ask me.

Dreamwalker was highly ordinary.  Remind me not to send Biship inside.. my healing was way better than his and he was in the dream and I was outside!  For the successful attempt it was me, Melfina and Beldarien.

Melfina has been irritating me a bit with his know-it-all attitude.  Targetme was being a princess yesterday because Sevril made a joking comment about healing in the heal channel and Target got upset and left the channel.  Sev felt bad, he only makes jokes about the good healers...

Finally! Killed Yogg Saron in 10 man

At long last we finally killed Yogg on Monday night.  It only took us 2 or 3 goes (that time) though that doesn't count the zillions of other times we've tried it.


Tanks: Hyad, Coolidge
DPS: Sevril, Moopie, Shadevar, Huntinhk, Shabadu
Healers: Cymre, Navimie, Melfina

Massive achievement spam in Guild chat!

We did have one attempt at doing Mimiron hard mode the day before, FORGET IT!  Was totally nuts.  I have no idea how you heal that crap fires everywhere!!!  On Sunday night we did Hodir 7 man, then did Freya 6 man (me being the only healer!).  Then we had a few more people turn up after their run finished and we could do Thorim and Mimiron and Vezax.
