I was asked to fill in again for the guild raid, and although the raid had defeated Lord Rhyolith before, this was my chance to see the Big Butt Boss go down in flames.
I only had a few minutes to celebrate (think there was also “Not an Ambi-Turner” achievement) before getting back to what I do best – dying!
I think the raid is still working on the last one, but I had a great time – thanks everyone!
I also got a big kick out of seeing my character on WoW Heroes with three Firelands bosses down – who would have thought that would ever happen? Woo Hoo!
I’m still bottom of the charts on dps which has been nagging me lately. I know I’m not going to do as well as someone with better gear, experience, etc. but I’m sure I should be doing much better with what I have right now.
I’ve got the two-piece bonuses for T11 and T12, all my stuff gemmed and enchanted properly, reforges are optimized. I’m following the spell priorities from shadowpriest.com and Elitist Jerks. I’m keeping Empowered Shadows up, refreshing my DoTs, etc. etc. and I’m averaging around 11k with buffs? Yikes!
I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong because I was pulling about the same in a troll with the 5% “Better Luck Next Time” buff. I’m missing something – but I don’t know where I’m going wrong.
Back to the drawing board…
Just because I have crappy dps doesn’t mean that I can’t have an interesting fight once in while…
I tagged along with a couple of guildies for a random troll and got ZA. I’m not sure what went wrong, but at the Jan’alai fight – always a tough one for me because I can never stay out of the darn fire – the tank went down, then a couple of other players went down. I’m not sure who was left as it was just me and one other person who could heal.
The boss was very low on health and I was almost oom so I thought what the heck I’ve got nothing to lose. I sent the Fiend in to “tank” for me and when it died the boss started beating on my face. I got just enough mana back from the Fiend to blow enough spells to kill the boss.
No, I didn’t save the day – it was fantastic heals from whoever was keeping me alive long enough to get the boss down – thank you!
And me caught without any Talent Points in the Priest Tanking tree….
I Need a Bigger Closet
The fun of putting together outfits for Transmogrification hit the wall when I realized I’m out of bank space. I can’t even send my outfits to an alt bank because they are soulbound.
So…a major bank clean out was hastily done and I might have to upgrade all my bank bags with Illusionary Bags – a rather expensive option!
It’s a good thing Blizzard anticipated the need for more storage space with the upcoming Void Storage, but I could sure use it now!
I’ve got three fun outfits and more on the way!
I lucked out and found the perfect hat for my Silver-Thread set.
Thanks to some fantastic guildies, I finally got the Ghostweave set complete! A big thanks to Troutwort for sending me the matching hood, and a special thanks to Koalabear’s mage for not only making me the Ghost Dye, but going out and farming all those mushrooms!
Well, that was just too good to pass up so…for your approval I present the obligatory Scarlet Crusade Clothie Set.
Apparently there is a very nice RP set using plate and/or mail, but we clothies have to be creative.
I had picked up the tabard a while ago, so a couple of more runs and I got the hat and robe. I found a lovely Runecloth Cloak in my Tailoring book and matching gloves at the auction house. I just need to find a suitable belt then I’m good to go!
Hurry up Blizzard – I need that Void Storage now!
