Black Temple Cleared!

Well I never got round to saying we downed the Illidari Council (the day after we killed Mother Shahraz) and then then Wednesday/Thursday re-cleared up to Illidan again. Sunday we spent pretty much all day wiping on him learning the fight our best attempt was 8%, Monday one of our fire resistance tanks didn't show but Tuesday we had another geared up and after a few more hours of wipes we killed him! Black temple cleared! Only 6 bosses left in the game that I've never killed! Were not geared for Sunwell yet but in a few weeks we'll be going and giving it a go. I'm well pleased with our progress took the guild about 2 months to clear MH and BT!

Side note: during our Illidan kill attempt around 32% my keyboard batteries died, when Maiev showed up I ran to get another to plug in. Thankfully while I was away I didn't wipe the raid, also had someone banging on the door while all this was going on... didn't answer it still no idea who it was! Even with all that I still managed to come second on the healing meters! Go me!

Your mother!

Well it's been a good week for Antihero! Tonight we killed Mother Shahraz! We only killed RoS yesterday so I'm pretty surprised that we made it so quick. We didn't have masses of Hearts of Darkness so could only spare enough to get everyone 3 parts of there shadow resist gear which meant we were slightly gimped. I had around 254 buffed and there were some people who were a lot less. We wiped a fair bit because of the lack of resist and people failing on getting Fatal Attraction. Illidari Council here we come!

RoS down! Plus a nice upgrade

Today I finally got me an upgrade for my Red Riding Hood's Cloak from Karazahn. Gurtogg Bloodboil finally dropped some healing loot! Shroud of Forgiveness is way better looking that my old cape so that's one thing but it also gave me 36 more healing, 120 health and like 1.2 more mana regen! I guess those are the kind of upgrades you get when you go from tier 4 or 6! Best priest cloak until the twins in Sunwell.

My new cloak

Oh and while writing this post we had 2 tries on RoS and downed him/it(?) on the second try of the day! That's 6/9 BT! Time to go farm for Hearts of Darkness! Then it's Mother Shahraz!

Magtheridon Rocks!

It's been almost 2 months since my last blog post I've just not been able to find time for it! I've got loads of news though on what I've been up to since I move to Magtheridon. Moving server was by far the best decision I've made in my WoW career, Magtheridon is such an awesome server. You can guarantee pug Kara's will be running any time you need, day or night! They don't fail, out of the 5 or so I did none had any problems with doing a full clear in about 4 hours. Pug Guurl's are just as frequent as Kara again with no problems clearing the whole instance, Maggy raids also run fairly regular and SSC/TK pugs do happen but the ones I went with didn't do so well! Pug 70 content aside one of my favorite things about the server is the weekly level 60 content pugs. Were not talking MC runs here (though they do happen) were talking full Naxx clears, AQ40 clears and BWL, there are a group of people that clear all the 40 man level 60 content every week. I have my Teir 3 ring of Kel'Thuzard to prove it thats something, when the expansion hits, will not be obtainable ever again! So I'll be holding onto that! Naxx is by far the best looking instance in the game, check out the screenies!

I spent my first few weeks trying out several guilds none of which I liked, I applied everywhere I could and eventually found somewhere I liked. The guilds name is Antihero, when I joined they were 4/5 MH and 3/9 BT. Since joining we have killed Archimonde 4 times now (and I got my T6 head - my first part!), we killed Teron Gorefiend without too much bother with constructs in the raid and have killed Gutrogg Bloodboil 2 times and had some decent attempts on RoS (best being about 30% on phase 3). So now we are 5/5 MH and 5/9 BT, MH clears now only take us about 3 and a half hours and that's usually with about an hour of wipes on Archimonde because we still seem to have some problems there and will continue to for a while I expect. This week they decided to make me an officer also which is cool all I really do is assign healing targets but it's nice to be more involved.

So all in all I'm very happy with the move I'm getting to see and beat content that previously I'd only seen in Videos and if we can clear BT before the expansion is released I'll be one happy priest! There are still people back on Bladefist that I miss but actually a lot of people I knew from there were already here, came with us or have moved recently to join us. It's a great server and anyone looking to find a new place to call home I highly recommend checking it out!

What happened next?
