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 Wizzam took his first steps into ICC with 24 other players. I’ve only managed 1 ICC25 with Tynee as since then the usual raid leaders had a party to attend then I was off to i40 and then the lakes. I originally planned to do an ICC25 HC with Tynee however barely any of the 26 signed up came online during invite time so I jumped into a normal guild ICC25 with Wizzam and got really lucky. I missed out on a spell damage dagger early on however HC gunship dropped some loot I could do with. Can’t say I didn’t make the other casters cry when I rolled a 96 for Ring of Rapid Ascent then a 95 for the next item, Amulet of the Silent Eulogy. There was a Mage decked out in the Sanctified Bloodmage’s Regalia who was desperate for the ring but I’m glad it went to someone more important 😉
We went on to plough our way through the bosses and tried Rotface on Herioc but after 3 wipes gave up. We were dropping 3-4 players early on due to not moving as soon taps began and waiting for slime as well as big spray hits etc. Well we took him on normal then moved on to one hit Festergut, Professor Putricide and the Blood Prince Council before hitting a brick wall on Blood-Queen Lana’thel. People messing up on biting as usual as well as not moving with Swarm of Shadows or getting close enough for Pact of the Darkfallen. After about 5-6 wipes we called it a night at 12am. It was all going so well until then and I had hoped to better her since I had the same issue when I was here with Tynee a few weeks earlier, people failing on bites.
Anyway, it was a great night and can’t wait til next Friday to possibly get my hands on some more gear. I’m only about 33 frosts from buying my first piece of Bloodmage Regalia, Bloodmage Robe.
Got to shoot off now to walk the dog before upgrading my PC RAM and moving over to Windows 7. Laters!
