Boss Kills and Legendary Quest Chains
Another week of raiding done and Shadow Rising has killed another boss! Both Arv and Van have already written about it so I'll try and be brief.
Tuesday Arv came for the first two bosses on his druid and a promise that next week he'll be solo tanking council as a bear. But for this week he switched to his paladin and I didn't have to try and pretend I understand how to tank that fight. Thankfully Arv was willing to talk me though how to tank Megaera and
Ji-kun since I was dpsing the other times we had done those fights. We managed to reach Durumu the Forgotten and after a few attempts realized we needed a better idea of the fight. So the raid was called for the night and we were given a homework assignment of watching the fight so we would be prepared for learning the fight on Wednesday.
Wednesday we went to work and kept seeing improvements and finished off the night with a boss kill. We thought about just calling it a night right there but Arv was determined to go see Primordious and set off though the oozes. We attempted to follow him but the first set of oozes blew most of us up before we even reached the room. Next week we'll do better.
This week I have managed to hit the 3000 vp needed to continue the legendary questline and I just needed to kill a mob at Domination Point and to win two battlegrounds. I had attempted earlier to kill the mob in the Alliance area but I couldn't deal with his spinning, summoned adds, and rifle shooting by myself. So after we called the raid for the night I asked for volunteers to help me with my quest. There was quite a lot of help and we quickly went down and stomped the dwarf into the dust.
Thursday night I spent in pvp to try and complete the legendary questline. I qued up for Silvershard mines and Temple and waited to see what I would get. I got Silvershard and it went terrible. The Alliance was getting the carts and holding onto them with a vengeance. But with a little persistence I did manage to snag an achievement even though I didn't get a win.
The next battleground I got was Silvershard again and it went about as well as the first. I wasn't feeling too lucky so didn't que for Silvershard again. I usually have really good luck with Temple so I decided to wait for that que. Temple is one of my favorite bg's since the goals are pretty simple. Get an orb, stay alive, and kill those other people.
And doing that enough times will get you an achievement. I can't stop, won't stop and just don't plan to stop anytime soon. :) After dominating that battleground I was ready to try another Silvershard bg and got lucky with a group that kicked butt.
