more adventures with the guild

firetree being a bit more active than jubeithos recently, although i just got kingslayer on xbow and zappel with the jubei guild.

classic dungeons with Vertu

sunken temple

first, me and vertu went to do classic dungeons. i dragged along fruit to make it a guild achievement run. ported to blasted lands, then flew into ST. headed straight for the end boss, only to find the dragon sleeping and refused to wake up. so we had to go kill jam the prophet first. he didnt have time to MC. fruit didnt need to go bear form either to tank the end dragon. he dropped superfast.

then vertu used his brewfest remote and ported us to BRD bar.

blackrock depths

we didnt have to kill phalanx cos vertu once upon a time did the quest for love potion so she would just open the door for us. nevertheless, cant just pop into end boss (emp room) so we had to clear some mobs and bosses along the way. the 7-dwarf room, then the hunt for 2 flame keepers. that was fun cos we didnt aggro any of the mobs, just kill and light altar and continue. then just aggro boss and kill him, and it’s over. then we had to run back the same way we came – to the portal, just outside the bar, then port to entrance and run out of the instance.

then it is a run up the chains and drop into BRS

blackrock spire (lower and upper)

we did lower first, and basically cleared mobs that were in our way. it was a pretty long run to the end boss cos there was a shortcut to drop onto the boss but i didnt know how. anyway, along the way i picked up the spider pet for everstone

then we dropped from the end boss to near the starting point, and ran upper. didnt do the “leeroy” achievement cos no mage. anyway vertu already got it and i dont care for it. again, killed stuff we needed to cos they were in the way, but i specifically went to kill for the worg pet. then end boss and we hearthed.

done for the day.

the next day, we did H Wrath dungeons with Samin

we decided to clear L to R, but i forgot ICC.

so i ported everstone to dalaran and then flew to coldarra to summon samin and spiritcat. vertu used his engr portal device to meet me at the nexus summoning stone.

H nexus

have to kill all bosses for end boss to activate. so we did that

samin was half tanking cos he had his RF on. who cares? whatever it takes to make it faster.

run out and fly up to H Occulus

H Occulus

vertu was skeptical if the end boss fight was possible, since we would have to 3-drake it out, but i said let’s try it since the dungeon has been nerfed so many times.

the first part, i thot can just run thru the mobs and then port into next zone. cant. so we killed them all at the end of the path.

cant avoid any of the bosses, so just tank and spanked them all.

drake boss fight was simple. and no one died. but no mount looted either. oh well, that was always a rare chance anyway, like the rivendare mount.

after that, run out and fly everstone to dragonblight for AN and OK.

H AN

again, kill all bosses. but we used vertu to FD to glitch boss so we can kill the spider boss faster. everstone got achievement for that. lol.

after kill end boss, path opens for us to run out and then into OK

H OK

skip bosses 1 and 3, and optional boss. then we went on to VH.

H VH

i hearthed both everstone and spiritcat, then use mage to port them to dalaran

VH is just kill kill kill and then achievement done.

 

time’s up. leaving the rest for another day.

Everstone dinged!

actually, everstone had been L84 for the longest time. but i didnt take him into any dungeons or questing (stopped after getting the SW portal opened in Twilight Highlands).

instead, i levelled him via mining! ROFL! i did a screencap of it.

gear-wise, he already has a full set of blue L85 bloodthirsty resilience gear, an epic tanking trinket from JPs saved up from former dungeon runs,  plus some other stuff xense and other firetree toons picked up/crafted for him

so he was ready for H dungeons right from hitting the level cap, but first, i had to train and spec him up, then gem and enchant.

then i took him to queue for H.

unfortunately, his first run was H Stonecore, and i failed at the Orzuk boss fight. i just cant get the tanking mechanics right. i felt really bad about it. cos the rest of the party were ok. i can tank for normal, but H is just too complicated. even after i get the sequencing right, i get the timing wrong. i probably need to practice more. so good luck to those who are stuck in my party!

next run was H Tides. that one i am confident about. so we cleared thru, ok, with a couple of deaths along the way. for example, on the 1st fight, i think healer ran out of mana, and so i died.  i think the party was a bit low on gear, cos all the boss drops were needed. so Everstone picked up his first VPs!

a H LFG run that failed for Spiritcat

this one is an awesome epic fail. we didnt even make it to downing the 1st boss. everyone just left in the middle of the fight, when people started dying.

actually, i already suspected it wont be a good run. whenever there are 2 healers in a mob, the tank would ask the druid to root one. which totally is useless, so i ended up using MC on the rooted healer. then they went off and broke the hex on the other healer…. sigh.

at least, there was a best excuse to use root on a castor: that way i know where they are (Griffin-Stonemaul) – i even have a screencap of the convo.
