guild achievement – H dungeon run

Guild achievement – H run

last night, ran a super long H GB (Grim Batol) cos we didnt follow strat. ok, we forgot the strat. Due to the current blizzard development on trial, which allows you to invite cross realm friends to party up, we got a 4-man group (Samin, Vertu, Magel, Musterbaitor/Jubei’thos) and LFG 1 more dps.

We got GB run, and thought it would be a piece of cake. wrong. 1st boss we wiped 3 times before we called it quits and skipped it. turns out, we didnt do it right and as a result, got smashed.

Strat requires cc of the malignant trogg. Killing this trogg near the boss, he will gain a 100% damage bonus (according to wowhead.)Holding the malignant trogg instead of killing it prevents more adds from spawning.

2nd boss fight wasnt easy either. the boss went from 60 deg cone of fire to 360 deg and everyone took too much dmg and wiped. we managed to get the boss down only after vertu was left with the boss at like 1%. it didnt help that the top dps was also the guy who died the first – cat druid.

and just when you thought things will be easier with 3rd boss, no. we wiped. cos i think people got burned by the adds. 2nd time round, we did it ok. this run was like a revision exercise for all. lol.

magel hadnt done GB in a while, since she was queueing mostly ZAZG now, so i had forgotten some of the strat. i only recently restarted H runs with Pickwick, since i was using him to farm mats for Magel’s engineering.

before last boss, druid had to leave and we got a DK. DK stayed alive and we completed the instance without any more wipes. repair cost for magel? 90 Gold.

We did it more for the guild achievement than anything else. the loot was all DE.

Xense changed profs

Yup. Formerly, Xense was mining and herbing, useless for a main. so i told my pal who plays Xense exclusively now, to consider reprofing. As what i did for Zappel when i moved Noice over to Jubei’thos.

so over the weekend, i also changed Werewolfe skinning to mining, and he mined from scratch to now being able to mine in Northrend (cobalt). i also used Pickwick, Everstone, Moodykat and Wormage to help mine the mats needed for Xense’s new profs – Engineering and Blacksmithing.

As of Sunday night, Xense is already using cobalt for levelling profs, with saronite next to come. and before you know it, it will be cata mats. I have parked Everstone in SB for the mining.

Firetree lowbies are now in Northrend

As a result of the last few activities i have been working on the 2 lowbies, both Wormage and Werewolfe are now in HF and have cold weather flying (SW to BT to get trained, then fly across Northrend to start quests in HF together). Wormage is 69 while Werewolfe is 68. Gonna rest them this week else they will be running on empty.
