About 2 nights ago on a world I share with the other half I had finished messing around with a rollercoaster attempt and decided to build something decent. A few ideas floated around but the one that I was interested in the most was taking on a build of a football stadium. It took about an hour to clear the land and then a good chunk of time calculating the size etc. Now the pitch is finished I’m beginning work on the stands.
I’ve took a few photos throughout the build just to show a progress, just hope they are decent quality as I only used the ingame Minecraft screenshot system. Once its finished I’ll get the photos up and possibly a video 😀
I’ve had my fair share of countless dungeon runs for specific drops and sometimes never ever getting what I run for, for example a decent wand upgrade for my Mage. However the other night Blizzard treat me well with not only the best night for item drops but one of the best Herioc runs I’ve ever done.
To kick start the love I ran Lost City of the Tol’vir specifically. When after particular items I prefer to run the dungeons I need then go random in hope to get them again if I didn’t get the item the first time. One of my rings was only 333 while the other was a rep vendor ring at 346, both still upgradeable. I came here to get my self the Veneficial Band but was happy when the Spirit Creeper Ring dropped from the first boss. Both decent upgrades, both dropping in the same run, and both going to ME!
On a high I then moved onto Halls of Origination where I had done a couple of runs in hope for Blood of Isiset as my one of my trinkets was still a green from quests and the other a decent 346 but DPS orientated. Whilst here though I was blessed not only a 200k+ tank who had took down all the current raid bosses and needed minimal healing but also a DPS group full of casters that pumped out a crazy amount of DPS and needed no upgrades. I was happy to get myself the herioc version of my current Soul Releaser as well as the Solar Wind Cloak both items I had forgot to put on my wish list. Needless to say after the times I’ve felt hard done by, this night of sheer love made it all worth it!
Last night the group I ended up running Lost City of the Tol’vir with had the most unfortunate luck with tanks. We wiped on the first group of mobs due to the tank having connection issues, and only just scraped through the second group before we decided to give him no more chances. Our next tank left after the first boss, third tank lost connection on the run up to mobs to the third boss and the forth tank left just as we were about to start Siamat as he didn’t get the drop he wanted from the boss before.
During all this we were quite fortunate the DK had a tanking off-spec which was enough for trash but without the gear we didn’t want to risk trying a boss.
After the lengthy run we thought we may aswell give Siamat a go otherwise we would just be standing around waiting. The fight began pretty smoothly however with the tank taking more damage than usual and with 1 less dps the adds spawning were beginning to take their tole on the rest of the group which stretched my healing and drained my mana pretty fast. Before phase 2 I had already become oom so with the druid’s innvervate on CD I wipped out my shadowfiend. This managed to squeeze me though to phase 2 where innvervate made its appearance. A few AoE heals and the group was topped backed up in time to nerf the boss to oblivion. Needless to say I pulled in quite an applause from the group which made this experience one of my most favourite healing times to date.
