Friday we went and hit Throne of the Four Winds hard. After two… amusingly embarrasing…. wipes on Conclave we were ready for the main event. I’m blaming Log for both of those. Or rather Log’s fishing hat. It totally had nothing to do with me getting distracted and dying the first time. Or on try two, Log dc’ing and me deciding to 1. Growl at the boss to get him out of the green circle and then 2. Switch back to healer mode while the boss was hitting me.
Anyway. Then it was time to work on Al Akir. After about two hours of wipes I was ready to go somewhere else but the raid overruled me and we stuck around. After a few more attempts things started getting better – we had an attempt where we got him below 6%.
I whispered to Kerick as we ate fish that our kill attempt would be chaotic, but soon. We’d have about 4 people left alive. I would not be one of them. And she’d have 80% mana.
The next attempt, we did an awesome job at phase 1 and 2. We grouped up well for Phase 3. We got him lower…. and lower… and lower. I died. Other people died. Then he died.
And there were 5 people alive. I was dead. And Kerick had 80% mana. ><
I die a lot on our progression fights and I feel like I’m healing myself lots, I’m staying out of bad… I just need to prioritize myself I think.
Saturday we worked hard on Nef. Got into P3 several times, really starting to have a feel for that fight. We’re hoping to down him Friday. After that we start having raid attendance issues. Sigh.
Oh and after two and a half hours on Nef we went to BOT and cleared it. One wipe, on the Council. Then set up for Cho’gall – and we one shot him. Nobody even died. Not even me. It was awesome.
Those freaking paladin shoulders dropped AGAIN. At least we had a priest along this time to give them to. Next time Kerick is getting tier pieces for her off spec.
