10 Man Drama in a 25 Man Guild

Lathere promised me about a dozen times that she would write a post about how 10 man groups can just about ruin a 25 man raiding guild. Are you in a 25 man guild? How many times have 10 mans been the source of your drama? I’ll bet a hell of a lot of the time.

The Future of Raiding

A few days ago we got to look into the crystal ball and see the future of raiding in World of Warcraft. Developers released this announcement which outlines how they intend raids and progression to work in Cataclysm. Most of the changes left me feeling pensive about Cataclysm – I can’t help but feel that all the things I love about raiding are slipping further out of my grasp.

Dedicated Insanity and some Less-than-Epic Epics and Rares

After last week’s success (earning a Tribute to Insanity – 0 wipes in Trial of the Grand Crusader) our 10 man group decided to push the envelope even further. Last night we ditched our shiniest new epicz to see if our previous achievements in ToGC was a testament to gear… or skill.

An Insanely Good Tribute Run

Last week the group got him in 2 attempts (without me, /cry) and this week we got Anub’arak without wiping at all. Our 10 man group earns the achievement: A Tribute to Insanity (10). Where’s my ToC Undying title hey?

Starcaller

Our 10 man group defeated Algalon the Observer on Sunday. If you’re following Lathere’s and my Achievements closely you probably already know that. It took us 3 weeks – 2 hours and 33 minutes all up to get him.

Patch 3.2 Shadow Priest Gear
for the 10 man Raider

Bring on the shiny new gear! This post is aimed at 10 man raiding Shadow Priests and casual players who want to see some of the cool new loot available in game with Patch 3.2. In this list I have used my preferred stat weightings to create a list of achievable gear for the 10 man raider. Not all items have been listed but I’ve tried to find the best Hit, Haste and Critical Strike piece for each gear slot.
