Tossing a coin.

Via Minimal

I procrastinate a lot.

I stopped umming and ahhhing and made a decision.  Had a coin flipping in my head for so many things the last few weeks.  This one was easy to make -if only because there aren’t as many consequences.  And if there is – I no longer care.

 I moved my main back to Dath’remar to raid.    I enjoyed my little holiday on Blackrock.  Definitely found a different notch of players – attitudes & skill. 

Am now 10 man raiding on my main, in the guild I joined as a healer on my alt.  They are quite happy to accommodate my much better geared main as dps.  It may not seem much to those further ahead  – but we killed Fester,  and are making progress on Rot – the only thing that is failing at the moment really is attendance.  We had to pug the 10th spot and got a  ret pally because someone got saved. 

I knew we were in trouble when I had to Mindvision the pug when he got in the instance to see where he ran off to, and then guide him where him where the teleporter was.

On our last attempts on Rot we misdirected to our Pally pug to try and get him killed. He was draining too many resources alive,  but we wanted his buffs. He wasn’t on vent even after several requests,  and even though he had a personally whispered clear instructions on what to do with the slimes – was failing.  On attempt 5 he asked ” So whats the deal with the slimes?”  He was ok on Fester because we told him to stack on boss and dps to his delight.  We didn’t cry when he got the hint and left – 9 maning Rot was still better then 9 men and a phail.  ( well actually 2 women, 7 men and a phail)

But Wednesday heralds the first real new raid week of the guild – so they have big hopes – and so do I.


And Emalon Down as well ( 10 man )

Server came back earlier then expected.


Now he was a bit trickier.

He throws a buff onto one of 4 adds , and that add needs to be killed asap.   It took us a little while to work out how to target that particular add in time to get it down.   You have about 20 secs before that add builds up 10 stacks of  Overcharged and blows up the raid. .

The easiest way I found to target the right one was tab target as soon as DBM announces when Emalon empowers the add –  that way your not relying on someone calling out  that they have it targeted,  or the add tank targeting the right one.   It was messy because all 4 get tanked together and trying to pick the right one of the four was hard.  It was either click target or tab tab.. untill you find the add with the debuff.  (is a blue lightening symbol)     We use ORA2 but that still relys on the add tank getting the right target and then targeting their target – By the time I found my target they were announcing on vent that they had it,  so if anything I only gain 1 sec  but add lag ect ect..  20 secs to kill something is not that long. I look forward to 25 man..
