Thuzad Teh Bashturd (Oh, And Dragons Too!)

“Psst..Mage.  Yesss, YOU.  Magik man.  How about just nuking all your friends here?  Excellent.”

“Hey there, Druid.  You’re insane, right?  Being a cat isn’t nearly as much fun as a bear.  Why don’t you shift and then show your friends all that pent up pet battle frustration you’ve been supressing.  Just…let it all out.”

Yeah, you can have the middle finger and then some KT.

The Alliance Laid Back Raid hit up 25-man Naxxramas last night.  Yes there were 10 of us, but a few were 90.  So we pretty much had it made.  Except, of course, for one teeny tiny itty bitty detail.

Kel’Thuzad casts Mind Control.  And he’ll cast it on level 90’s.  It was not a pretty sight.  So after the raid got ripped a new one a few times, we decided to call it a night.  It was getting late, thanks large in part to me getting in the  door about a half hour after we were to start.  But we had a tonne of fun and learned that Glyph of Confession really is the best Glyph in the game.  And some folks got some spiffy Transmog gear as per usual.

The night before, the members of Claws of Nature who were on decided we wanted to go back and visit Sarth for the mount.  However, with only four of us, I felt a little underpowered.  I sweet talked Draynee and Repgrind into joining us and booyah it was a cake-walk.  Mrs. Amateur won the mount, so that leaves Magik to get it next week (unless Grex is on, then it’s 50/50 again).  But after we were done folks were keen on doing something else yet and somehow we decided on Onyxia and also 25-man.

There was a bit of concern whether or not we had the power to do it, but figured if we failed we could just drop it down to ten.  Well, the fight probably took the normal amount of time, but we knocked it off.  Once again the fun was had and oddly enough I picked up the 22-slot bag from Onyxia and from Sartharion.  Tum’s a bit happier now.

She took her last deep breath…

Going into the instance, I actually saw a Spawn of Onyxia.  So, I battled.  Not only did I win against what I suspected was a rare based on the insane stats….but I killed the damned thing.  Not my finest hour.  Fortunately, coming out of the raid I found another one.  It was a poor quality, but the end result was a taming.  In sheer befuddlery, Tum actually captured it on the first try instead of his usual fifth or sixth attempt (yes I have improved traps).

    She’s over there crying in her beer, ah, wine. She’s so ashamed and not speaking to me as I went and told everyone about it in a post. She feels so betrayed, yeah, she’ll get over it, she never says mad too long.

    Oh no! I hate when that happens, you finally find the rare you’re looking for and accidentally kill it, hope he turns up again. I’m a great one for forgetting which level team I have before bonking something.

      It wasn’t even that I was inappropriate level for the Spawn. I had the Spirit out and once again Tum’s stellar trap skills lead to two misses. I forgot a divebomb would kill the Spawn and that’s exactly what I did.

    Eww I forgot about that mind control. Maybe I’m glad I had to skip out early.

    Sorry about that btw, but I did get a couple of upgrades in the guild heroics we ran, so it was probably worth it. 🙂

      It’s all good. Knew we were in for a night after I told someone to bring their tank when there was a level 90 one…

    I predict LBR may be paying KT another visit after 5.1 drops. They just announced they are adding pet drops from the bosses in all vanilla raids and Naxx including Mr Bigglesworth.

      Yes I believe that will be a discussion before the week is up. 🙂
