Zul'Jin Down!

Zul'Jin did go down yesterday. I hooked up with a 4 chest group and we went and raped Zul' Aman. It was a lot of fun. I think though that if I had a dedicated raiding team that had been determined to bring him down and been stuck on him for several months, this kill would have been worth more to me. As it is, I saw him and killed him.

Now, Akoris has been running around doing all the low level quests. I just finished up Dun Mourgh and right now I've got most of the quests in Loch Modan. All these quests and achievements have really made me realized that I haven't done anything in this game. I think after I raise my rep to exalted with Ironforge, I might just go and buy lots of cloth from the AH and give it to the Gnomeregon reps in Ironforge for easy reputation. I've also realized the need I have to complete the raids. I need to raid Kara(ha), Gruuls(ha), TK, Serpenshrine, Hyjal, Black Temple and Sunwell. I've basically only cleared Mags and ZA. It's not cool, at least in terms of game progression. I did manage to get all old world instances under my belt. Now I have most of the old world raids. I think with a competent 10 man, we could easily clear Blackwing Lair, Zul Gruub, MC and all other raids. It's just a matter of doing them.

Zombie Attack!

This is probably old news to everyone, but an in-game event started two days ago. Zombies invaded the world of Azeroth. Suspicious crates showed up in Booty Bay and if one were to loot them, they would get a de-buff that, if not cured by someone in 10 minutes, you die and become a zombie. As a zombie, you get special zombie powers. One is where you explode and it does an AoE spell and everyone around you gets the debuff.This might sound really cool, but I don't really like it. I don't want to be having to fight off zombies as I try and run around and do quests. It's not really hard for Akoris to dodge them, as he has a flying mount and all, but someone like Mordenial, its not going to happen. He'll just die.

So, Akoris finally got off his ass and finished Magister's Terrace. How come whenever I go in there, it turns into such a disater? People leave, its too hard, blah balh blah. We had the tank and a DPS leave when we got to Kael'Thas. I was able to round up two guildies, Eldwor and Volan, to come help me out.

I really love this guild. We were a serious raiding guild, but everyone is friends here. There really isn't any drama. And I can almost always recruit people to go and do random shit with me. We had 4 or 5 people come with me on a PuG Magtheridon run. I lead that fucking run. No one there knew the fight very well and so I ran it. I had been there once before, ironically on a pug, and so I sorta knew the fight and therefore, I was the one explaining what was going to happen, fielding questions and calling out for the clickers to click. After we got everything sorted out, the run went well. I forgot that if the ceiling collapses, it doesn't reset the box timers, so on a run, the ceiling collapsed, not a lot of people died, but we were all scattered so much that we couldn't click the boxes in time and there was a wipe. But, in the next attempt, we minded the timers, and it so happened, we got him through 32% with like 45 seconds left, so we DPSd through it. Fun was had. I almost got a 20 slot bag. I rolled a 99/100 on it and I convinced that I had it. Nope. It was ninjad by a 100/100 roll. Complete and utter bull shit. I was so angry.

I went into Zul Aman two days ago. I really enjoyed it. Our group was way OP and so we raced through all the bosses and killed everything very efficiently. I healed the most, as usual. We got stopped by the Hex Lord, which bummed me out a little. I wanted a full clear on my first time through. But, I'll put a group together again and really fuck the shit out of that place. Lols and ggs will be had.

So, I have been telling my self that I should level Mordenial. But, I can't get myself to do it. I need to get his herbalism up to a level that matches the zone. Dustwallow Marsh is a high level zone, so I need to run around and pick a shit load of herbs to get it up to that high. Doing that is a major buzz kill, but I'm sure that I will regret not having done it. Going back as a 70 to all these low level zones will be even worse. Wow. I started off this post not knowing what to say.

First Post!

Okay, so I decided to start a WoW blog, one that I just babble about my WoW experience. It will be fun.
