Just a 25-man trash run, but I was asked if I wanted to tag along.

Since I never get to see this level of content while it’s current, I thought “Hell YES!”

Only problem was I wasn’t sure if my ilvl was high enough to get me in, but I went through the portal and wonder of wonders, I was in!

Firelands

Firelands

That’s me sitting at the bottom. About 1/2 a second into the first pull I got knocked off the ramp, died and fell into the endless void…

Fortunately it’s a very short Humiliating Run from the Graveyard and easy to find the portal.

It’s an undisputed fact I was the lowest dps in there – rocking the raid with my amazing sub-par 2k-3k dps!

Despite my poor performance, these were experienced raiders and it was quite an education for me to watch how they solved problems and succeeded.

Crowd Control

Crowd Control

I didn’t get a lot of screen shots because one really has to pay attention and follow directions, but I managed to get a few just in case I don’t get back there.

After all, it’s not as if I need raid level gear – heck, I’ve got a ton of hard work to do just to get my dps up to “average” – for the Holiday Boss!

Yes, once again someone posted Recount after the Holiday Boss yesterday and I actually did worse than the last time.  Bottom of the list at a whopping 9%.

Ugh.  That’s just embarrassing.

But I digress.

Spinning Turtles

These guys are fun – and gave me a free trip back into the void.

Turtle Pack

Turtle Pack

Molten Surgers

These guys – not so much fun.  I didn’t get a screen shot because well, I was busy dying.  They will randomly charge someone and can two-shot me back to the graveyard.

I think I actually cheered when they finally killed these guys.

Firelands

Firelands

At one point I had a quest pop up, but just as I clicked it I died so I wasn’t sure if I picked it up or not, but it was in my quest log – Your Time Has Come.

I decided to follow the chain for a bit before logging off so back to Stormwind to pick up A Legendary Engagement, then off to the Caverns of Time for A Wrinkle in Time.

This quest had a very nice cinematic where apparently, the entire fate of Azeroth is in my hands.  Considering my ilvl and astonishing dps….Azeroth is doomed.

I figured it probably wouldn’t be a very good idea to inform Anachronos that Azeroth will probably be consumed by fire if I’m the only one who can save it, so I played along and picked up the next quest – All-Seeing Eye.

Well, this is where I hit the quest wall.  I need 25 Eternal Embers and 3 Sands of Time.

Sands of Time can be purchased from a vendor for about 3,000g a pop – way out of my price range at the moment.

Eternal Embers drop from a Firelands boss so I don’t think I’ll be doing that any time soon!

No matter, I’ll keep the quest in my log as a souvenir!

Midsummer Fire Festival

Picked up a few of the Festival Achievements although some will have to wait until next year.  I don’t think I’ll manage to squeak out enough Fire Blossoms to purchase all the items for the Midsummer Set with all available fires and dailies – I’m short 198 for the shoes.

I might try the Torch Juggler Achievement, but I did manage to get everything for Desecration of the Horde, the Fires of Azeroth and King of the Fire Festival.

Oh well.
With a nice, long weekend coming up I have some time to start doing some serious work to get my dps up…and maybe even run a normal dungeon or two!
