I won’t lie. For selfish reasons, this weekend and next I scheduled Laid Back Raids for Saturday night and I never know how that is going to turn out. Some folks have plans and some simply don’t notice. With Algalon on the schedule for the Alliance last night, I knew for sure that Healblade was out. After that was a crap shoot
We ended up with about seven of us, eight when Zwingli was able to join us early on and then again for the final two bosses. In 10-man, that was serious zerg. Well, except for the fact that I wanted an awesome screenshot of Algalon, but instead targeted him and interrupted his little constellation speech. We wiped when I think he removed the entire floor. No fight, just more of a “how dare you” as we all died. So we regrouped and hoped that didn’t happen again. Well, us Claws of Nature folk…despite “thinking” we were within the platform for the fight, were in fact not. But at least I got to watch them whoop the star-crossed boss.
I think if you look close you can see Repgrind’s Mage getting off a spell. I can’t remember if we still had two alive at that point…I know Magik was dead beside me. I was fine with dying, but disappointed I didn’t get the shoulders to complete Liouxpold’s current transmog. However, I did win the roll for Avalanche when it dropped from Hodir. It would seem after years of being a crossbow only guy, Liouxpold is turning into quite the bow collector. Which is probably good. Man did I get heckled on his behalf last night. No Guild Page, not Exalted with my own guild, no Cold Weather Flying, “Turn off aspect of the pack,”"turn it off again please”…yeesh, it was never ending!
The good news was that we rolled on and I had forgotten Magik had never finished Ulduar, in fact Cat Lady was as far as he had gotten (back when it was current). So to be able to show him the whole place was great. To be able to down Yogg-Saron at the end was perfect as well.
Also during the raid, Magik, Mrs, and myself got a pleasant surprise as one of our other guildies (Grexinimi) was on and kinda doing his own thing…
So, needless to say when the raid was over…Magik went straight to Stormwind, while Mrs. and I switched to toons that were Exalted with the guild and we were all proud owners of Dark Phoenix pets. Magik and I captured the moment…that prissy Hunter Naeda was too good for us, I guess.
