Aww yeah, that's right... I got my Anzu
mount... It's about damn time!
So, I still don't really have a lot to say. There's a lot of changes happening to people's stats over the next month or so, but i'm really not that phased by most of it. Druid tanks are getting nerfed? Well sure.. we're overpowered as shit right now. Our self healing is absurd, our mastery is outrageous, and our health pools are obscene. All 3 of them are getting nerfed...
meh, such is life.
My guild has also been teetering on the edge of taking the break from official raids until Cataclysm... Not entirely unexpected really, but it's happening in a bizarre way. People are cancelling at the last minute, people are getting frustrated for one reason or another, and it just seems like we're losing focus easily... I understand that things happen, but being a raid leader it's really frustrating trying to hold the raid together in spite of all of this. I do what I can but man sometimes I just wanna smack people... hahaha.. BUT.. In spite of that, we got several people something really cool with a project raid on fridays...
Yep.. That was the last achievement a couple people needed to get their Ruste
d Proto-Drakes... the mount given from the "Glory of the Ulduar Raider (10-man)" achievement
Awesome looking mount isn't it? I wants one for my own (photo courtesy of Wowhead).
With our project raid FINALLY downing Yogg+1 (which was a nightmare of a fight, by the way), we moved on to the only boss none of us have never killed in this expansion...
Algalon, the goddamn, observer.. Widely heralded as the most difficult boss encounter in this expansion short of Lich King hard mode... and rightly so. The man hits fast, hard, and has a LOT of goddamn aoe damage. When I ended up having to leave for work tonight, we had about 20 minutes left on his timer and had already wiped on him around 5-6 times... Not a fight to take lightly, even as much as you might outgear it. To give you a hint? My crew which is comprised of 10 man, kingslayers and ALL of us with average item levels over 251... and we could barely get past the first Big Bang (that's only 90 seconds into the fight) on our best attempt.
Algalon is no... fucking... joke... yarrrgghh. /flail
