Really, I do…
I’m scared to say it, because I don’t want to jinx it but dizam, our 10 man group is the bomb. It feels like we have the best class balance and the best personality balance a group can have. We steamrolled through last night, taking out Flame Leviathan, Ignis, Razorscale, XT, Kologarn, Iron Council, Auriyia, and Hodir. We had a couple hiccups on Iron Council, but it was stuff we could easily correct and avoid on the next attempt. Everything else went very smoothly; there was friendly and fun banter on Vent. Nothing is really getting DE’d because a class isn’t represented, it’s getting DE’d if it’s a duplicate. We have a pally, a shaman, warrior, druid, shadow priest, a holy priest, a hunter, deathknight, and 2 mages. The pulls are getting to be muscle memory and everyone knows what their responsibilities are. Love it!!
I did have the funniest thing happen on Razorscale. We had just finished up Flame Leviathan and headed to Razor when my little one started fussing, so I needed to AFK for a quick 2 mins to get him back to sleep. When I came back, they said “Ok as soon as Sinny gets back, we’ll start it up”. And I said I was back on Vent and then looked at my shapeshifting bar… Hm, where’s my tree… OH NO! “WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT” I hit N and click Activate for my resto spec… “too late, we just started it up”. I thought I had gotten it in time but then I see “Entering Combat” and my spec switch stops mid stream. “uh guys? I’ll be dps’ing for this…” It was really fun, too : ) We got the achievement for A Quick Shave even.
We had one wipe on Hodir, I can’t even really remember what went wrong, but when we did our 2nd attempt, we got the I Have the Coolest Friends achievement. I think the only fight that I had mana issues on was Iron Council and I think that was mainly because I was healing our Pally tank and I’m not used to healing him so I can’t anticipate his damage yet. I had a lot of overhealing on that fight from spamming Nourish and constant Blooms. I’ll be conscious of that on our next encounter with The Council and see what I can do to be more efficient with my mana.
Before the raid started, I finished up a couple quests that I had in my quest log. Trying to make room for Loremaster craziness. I did one quest that was inside Uldaman, but not actually *in* the instance and it didn’t count towards my total. So I abandoned the rest of the chain for the time being. Sure it would count towards my Seeker achievement but I’ll have that without problem when I have Loremaster (the big Loremaster, not just Classic) done.
As it pertains to this blog, I’m tweaking some of my layout. I’m learning more about blogging from practice-makes-better-but-not-perfect and reading other blogs and seeing what elements I like as a reader. So, stay tuned and hope you (the one or two people who are reading) enjoy it! :)
