HKM = DEAD
GRUUL = DEAD
DPS Sh*t mostly dropped, no new pants and more importantly no shield for me. My DKP is capped since nothing will drop for me to spend it on.
LOOT FRUSTRATION = MAX
The good news is that we got together and did a 25 man raid. I really enjoy raiding (except Kara, at this point I’m so sick of that instance) More good news is that we’re doing Mag on Friday, looking forward to it even though there really isn’t anything on him that I would put dkp towards(possibly the polearm for pvp).
After Gruul I formed up a ZA group.
Disappointing news is we wiped on the trash therefore eliminating a shot at the timer and double the loot. Once on the bear a short “nightmare” began and we wiped about 5x. One attempt it was my fault, I tagged the boss before the druid OT did and I had agro on the wrong phase. Therefore causing me to get the wrong debuff. Druid taunted off me also getting the debuff, in the end causing a quick wipe. My stupid fault, said my apologies, boss reset & retry. Several druid taunt resists later and bad silences resulting in druid deaths = trash mobs and boss reset. That was a kick in the nuts, two weeks before we had the boss almost beat in the count down time. I mentioned on vent that were getting worse in this place and I actually really meant it, I take that on myself also, I messed up once so I’m not without blame. Overall it was blamed on us being rusty to ZA. That maybe exactly the problem, which says to me less Kara more ZA. Some people left the raid from a mixture of it being late and frustration for others. After a short time I found more guildies willing to come which was good news, I would have been very disappointed to of left off on such a bad note. We worked our way through trash and 1 shotted bear boss. That was a good feeling, but still it wasn’t an “accomplishment” since we have already done this several times, I’m dying for some progression.
After bear boss and my need to progress I pulled enough favors from people to stay up late and we headed off to check out the lynx boss. Trash to him is a little longer than bear or eagle but nothing crazy to deal with. At first we were all hanging around the back door (*snicker* back door) of his temple for like 15 minutes not realizing we had to work our way around it. After we figured out we were retarded we were standing in front of lynx shortly after. Along the way to lynx we also found an npc needed for a quest which i picked up a +15 stam gem(pretty nice for free). After 3 attempts at the boss we had him at 50%, but by that point it was 3am server time and everyone was beat. I’m pumped about the Lynx attempts and honestly I feel like ditching any Kara runs in favor of ZA. I’m really glad that what started out as a nightmare run was turned into a satisfying attempt at ZA for me. I realize other people feel like not killing a boss and having a repair bill = fail, but that’s just not the case. There is always a learning curve, and last night I think the group pulled together and did a great job. I'll wipe on a boss all night long if i feel like everyone is still trying and not giving up. Thats more fun to me than killing easy bosses over and over again.
