For this week’s Laid Back Raid, we had a solid turnout, including at least four new players with us -which was awesome in itself. Don’t know if it was timing or if people just really don’t like Kael’thas all that much as I had scheduled Tempest Keep for the night. We just blew through the place, not surprisingly. I believe Liouxpold got a Leatherworking recipe out of it, but can’t recall for certain. I know I saw a few need rolls for Mog items, so that always makes me happy.
With such a large group to tear through the place it was evident from the get go we would be hitting more than one raid on this night and my first suggestion was well received and we headed off to a certain Temple in Shadowmoon Valley.
Honestly, there were a fair number of achievements that went off at the end of that raid, which again made me happy. Always nice to see people hit a raid for the first time. I joked when we got to Illidan that he needed to drop a glaive, the bow, and his shield (hey, we got a glaive and shield one night, why not be a bit greedier?). Well, he did drop one of those items, and I was quite happy.
Unfortunately now is the matter of building an outfit for him. My first two designs involved Yogg-Saron (10N) or Freya (25N). Barring some pug somewhere, Lioux’s not hitting Ulduar any time soon. I have other toons that will go first. Then again, should I really be working on Mog outfits when I’m in the middle of a Mog contest?
