How are you doing?

I hope all is well with all of you, and I hope this post finds all of you kicking whatever is left of ICC in the arse.  For many it will be the last few bosses of ICC that will get the best of them, but don’t give up, the finish line is closer than you might think.  I find that we are all in the lag period before the expansion pack.  For me, I have also been distracted.  We’re moving to a new house, and I really haven’t time to think about raids between that and work.  Buying a house is a stressful process!  It was worse than any defile LK ever put on my toon.. seriously.  🙂

I just wanted to see how everyone is doing out there in the blogosphere.  What are your thoughts on Cataclysm?  Will you be a Worgen?  How are your raids?  Heroic ICC  kicking your butt?  Any fab loot to speak of?   Any new healing techniques I should know about?  Anything.. at all?  Anyone wanna write something and post it here?  LOL

Hope to hear from you soon!

Smooches and Happy Raiding!

Easily Defiled but Not Broken

I haven’t posted much of anything lately, but I had a quick break and figured I would share what helped me make it through the Lich King and all his Defiles.  And for those who haven’t killed him yet, I hope my tips will help you and your guild make it through.  I think I got like three of those Defile things last night- and I didn’t wipe the raid!  It’s a miracle!  LOL

I remember writing more than a month ago that this fight and the Defiles was all about pre-moving.  I still believe this is true, but let me take you step by step of how I deal with this phase of the fight.  TankSpot is spot on when the guide says, “Phase 2 is all about handling defiles and proper slows.”  To avoid wiping the raid (fingers crossed everytime) and possibly being docked DKP, I did the following: Continue reading

Kingslayer, Baby!

Finally!

Lich King Ain't Got Nuthin' On Me!

Crikey!

We went in to see the Lich King for the second time last night, and this fight is a learning process and a work in progress.  That’s the simplest way to put it.  One spell- and one spell alone- can jack it all up.

Defile.

It looks like this if you fail. Continue reading

LK to 61%

Not too bad for our first night of wipes, right?  Some say it will take us four weeks.  I am hoping for three at this point.  Dealing with LK’s defile is proving to be a stumbling block; however, I think we have phase 1 down.  The defile phase is all about pre-moving.  Body and Soul, GO!  Continue reading

Noble is the new Sexxy

Gotcha "sprung" off my Spring Robes.

Yeah, it’s bangin’.  I know.  LOL.  Only two more titles to go before I get my, “What A Long, Strange Trip It’s Been” achievement.  I still need For The Children and The Flame Keeper.  It looks like it may be June before I finish.  That’s just around the corner.. sort of.  I hope I have the patience for it.  LOL Continue reading

Update

So… I been out of pocket… absent.. hiding… working.. chilling.. relaxing… whatever you want to call it.. I have been “away.”  And I have enjoyed it.

Last time I wrote anything, I was the GM of my own guild <OMG Priest>, and I was running the pug-nastiest of pugs.  I had fun, but I got recruited.  Yeeeeesssss, I got recruited to join the guild some of my old guildies went to- almost to the point of it being peer pressure to join.  (I’m glad they like me enough to do that!).  So I joined, and this is my first week raiding with them- and all I can say is, “Wow.”

Blood Queen Lana'thel- DOWN!

Prof Put DOWN!

Sindragosa.. DOWN!

Three ‘chieves… one night.  And all on my bday!  It was a great night for me.  I am soooo close to seeing the Lich King.  I get excited just thinking about it.
BTW- The four-set change is fine with me.  I just haven’t had time to tell you that.  So far, so good.
Happy Raiding!

p.s. This ain’t no April Fool’s joke.  Armory me.  This guild sort of rocks.. ok they “rocks-a-lot!”
