Bye M’uru. Hi Kil’jaedan.

Posted in Burning Crusade, Guild, Raiding with tags , , , , , on July 25, 2008 by pallywithash

Finally downed M’uru last night for my server’s Alliance first kill. Overall was a fun fight and although they nerfed it, the encounter was fun both pre-nerf and post. I couldn’t be any more proud of my fellow guildies. I will say to all of you Paladins, granted only two of you get to go per M’uru kill, healing the main tank is, at first a real pain in the ass but once you and your MT figure out how to position yourselves, pick up sentinals, move with each other you’ll get the hang of it.

Another tip is that if you’re packing a nice amount of spell haste (I’ve got 286), you need to make sure you heal the tank with Rank 8 Holy Light and a mixture of ranks 10 and 11. Rank 11 being for the heavy damage. Spamming some very fast, max rank Flash of Lights between the Sentinel spawns will help keep your tank topped off while he runs around.

I’d really like to hear from you guys about your M’uru encounters so feel free to post comments. For those of you on him, good luck and have fun.

Oh and…I am definitely putting out a video this time 😉

F*** M’uru

Posted in Burning Crusade, Guild, Raiding on July 21, 2008 by pallywithash

Well actually, F*** Entropius. 8% wipe. Healing this fight is probably the hardest job I’ve ever been given in my entire raiding “career”. You can’t sneeze. You can’t blink. You can’t take your eyes off of the main tank for a second. Anyway, hopefully we can beat this particular guild to killing him and snag an Alliance-Server First kill tomorrow night.

Spell Haste Stacking Guide – Part I

Posted in Guides, Holy Spec, Raiding, Talents & Spells on July 2, 2008 by pallywithash

 

***THIS GUIDE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS***

As my guildies well know, I have been testing out Spell haste for Sunwell and despite my doubt I’ve found that thus far, it’s not half bad. My initial response to the Spell Haste stat was—negative. I’ve honestly never been a fan of it and always felt to gimp my +Healing, Spell Crit % and Mp5 in favor of Spell haste was completely ludicris. My initial intent of this guide was to help out the other Paladins in my guild however I felt that since Spell Haste stacking is relatively new to the game, it would be nice to write an actual guide for it. So, if you’re still interested in upping your HPS read on after the jump.

Sunwell, 8/8 and Corrupt Ex-GM’s.

Posted in Guild, Items, Raiding on June 25, 2008 by pallywithash

Yes, what a mouthful! A quick summary since I don’t have the energy or time to go in depth. About 2 months ago I felt a need to jump to a more mature guild, not to mention I had this growing feeling that my GM (Amazed/Titharenko) was going to fuck the entire guild over at any given moment.

So, with that eerie thought paired with our lack of progression — I left Cloverfield and joined one of the top Alliance guilds on Frostmane, Dragonflight. Shortly after leaving Cloverfield I come to find out that Mr. Amazed the GM has been selling Cloverfield’s Black Temple and Mount Hyjal raid ID’s to another top Alliance guild, pocketing the gold for his own selfish reasons. Now, he and I had a few talks when I was in the guild about him putting his account up for sale, checking how much it was actually worth — finding this out from my ex-guildies only supports my thoughts about him being crooked. Oh well. Onto bigger and much better things right? Continue reading

Still no damn shield(s)…

Posted in Items, Raiding on May 7, 2008 by pallywithash

Yet another raid week goes by in which neither Felstone Bulwark nor Bastion of Light have dropped. I hate being next in line for an item and it taking weeks months to drop. I don’t mean to QQ but it’s getting annoying. Guess my good old Karazhan shield will have to do for now…

And what do you know…no less than 30 seconds after I made this post, I come back into game and realize that Shroud of the Final Stand was just looted to me 🙂 Ironic isn’t it? 

Boss Updates…

Posted in Guild, Raiding on May 1, 2008 by pallywithash

Quicky post…we’re working on Bloodboil in BT, Archimonde in Hyjal. Things are going well so far. Unfortunately, our MT and a few other vital players can’t seem to get a stable connection. DC’s FTL.

Also, picked up the guild first T6 gloves the other night and now wishing my damn shield would drop off of Anatheron (or Supremus).

 

Kaz’rogal: The Boss that hates healers.

Posted in Guild, Raiding on April 3, 2008 by pallywithash

Once again, a boss fight that I absolutely hate. This big fella likes to cast a debuff that eats your mana and when you get to zero, you go boom boom. Anyway, we killed him last night on our 2nd attempt (the first attempt we took him to 1%). Honestly, I feel a little bit “left behind” since a lot of guilds killed this guy months ago and are already farming Black Temple but it’s been really nice killing new bosses.  Thus far, I’ve enjoyed Hyjal quite a bit. Anyway, heres the screenshot. Sneak peek of the updated UI too. screenshot_040108_234832.jpeg
