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!

Anyone there?

I am guessing “no” as I pretty much abandoned this blog, cut back on my playing time, sort of started working out, and got back to doing other things I really enjoy. Like reading!   Let me see… The Kiterunner, The Immortal Life of Hattie Lacks, and a bit of Tom Sawyer.  I also watched The Kiterunner movie.. it made me cry.  My husband likes to make me play the new Resident Evil game- which gives me nightmares.  I hate zombies.  I’ve also become quite a fan of HGTV lately.  So outside of WoW, I’ve been halfway living life as I did pre-WoW.  I have to say.. it’s been nice.  I lost weight and everything!  LOL 

My poor DK still transmutes, but she does little else.  Although, today she did get a new weapon and a new rep ring from AV.  All I did was log her on to transmute, and an old friend immediately sent her an invite to ICC.  I was like, “o…k….”  I almost forgot how to play her, but I quickly got into the groove of things.  It was fun.

LK Lives

On my main, Exanna, I only raid three days a week now- which has been a nice break!  And in pretty much prick-less guild- so that helps, too!  We got LK to 30-something-percent last week, so I am guessing that effer will die soon.  OMG!  I can only hope.  Defile has proven to be a real bitch- but we are getting the hang of it.  It’s nice to Body-and-Soul out of stupidity!

Renew This

In other news- my healing is now very renew, CoH, and PoH heavy.  However, again it always depends on the fight, and it also depends on knowing exactly when damage will spike.  Changing servers has really challenged me to be a better healer.  I feel like I need more crit though.  So we will see.

That’s it for now.  Hope all is well out there!

Happy Raiding!

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

OMG.. Patch?

Did I miss something?

I mean.. I’ve been really busy working on my resume tape, so the patch came and went without much fanfare for me.  Which is odd in itself..

But wasn’t there supposed to be like a change in Tier-10 for us?  I don’t know.  Oh!  Oh, wait.. there it is buried in everything else.

Priest Tier-10 4-Piece Healing Set Bonus: Redesigned. This bonus now increases the effectiveness of the caster’s Power Word: Shield by 5% and Circle of Healing by 10%.

Okay, then, I will eventually have to take a break from RL and find out how it works.  LOL.  I haven’t transmuted in days!

I’ve made about 10 versions of my resume tape in the last week.  Thank goodness for non-linear editing!  Tape-to-tape would make it a total  labor of hate.  Anyhoo- that’s where I’ve been hiding the last few days.  I guess I need to step back into WoW for some fun! 

Nice to know those frozen orb ninjas can’t ninja anymore.  I should make a list of all the people I have stalked after they showed their arse by needing an orb.  I have a few level 1’s who were made expressly for that purpose.  It takes a real sonofab!tch to wait until everyone greeds to need.  And it takes a real b!tch to stalk them and tell them what jerks they are.  Yeeeeeeeeppppppppp…

I actually look forward to trying the new bonus in a raiding situation.  I think our leet 10-man starts this week.  That will be nice.

Anxious to read what you guys think of the patch and the bonus “redesign.”  Leave a comment!

Happy Raiding!
