One Boss Down
I failed badly today. I failed at a Horrific Vision with the high cost of the 10,000 currency. I failed at the Vision Daily because I completely missed that they put a potion in my bags. Imagine trying to Google the answer inside one of those things knowing that you are getting pummeled with corruption.
Soldier on, little warrior.
We raided last night! We fielded twelve players, several who had not played in months. It was slow going but we downed the first boss after five tries. No loot for me, but the other healer got a trinket that shows wings which I really want now. We all want wings, secretly inside our dream chests.
The first fight was a fun fight on Normal. We had to learn the three or four mechanics. It did not feel like it was a mechanic heavy fight; more like a simple execution fight. As always, the art work was great and the RP speech was fun to listen to.
We all got the Achievement.
The second boss is a choice of two. We chose Maut. We did not kill him but made good progress. The tanks have special jobs in this fight, the healers get special mana buffs and the dps has to learn the dance like everyone else.
We simply ran out of time. A lot of our raid night was chatting. It had been a long time since we’d grouped up. Some players did class switching, like from mage to hunter. Everyone is still smarting from “bring the class” I think.
Will Sunday bring our twelve back? I don’t know but I sure hope so! If not, I will be happy running the LFR or even joining some pugs. The trick is to do it this week while everyone is learning the fights on the servers but I feel duty-bound to wait until Sunday. Ever so the challenges when playing the World of Warcraft.
