Pain and Heartbreak

As soon as the Heart of the Deconstructor appears I pop a potion, dot, dot, dot and Shadowfiend then spam Mind Flay. This is one fight that I’m not happy with my own personal performance. Not even close. Our raid leader is setting the bar at 300k damage done to the heart and I can’t consistently make that mark.

Of Hard Modes & Guilds

It’s been 7 months since I lead a guild & approximately 1 year since leading a 25 man raiding guild back in BC. To me, one of the most important aspects of guild leadership was defining your guild in terms of game style and progression goals. How can people understand what they’re signing up for if you haven’t made this incredibly clear?

Lath’s All Time Favourite Raid Bosses

I’ve killed Yoggy now and even after many many wipes I still think that he is my favourite boss fight. Cass on the other hand experienced the Yogg portals for the first time on our 10 man run and absolutely can’t stand it. This made me start thinking about what other boss fights have I really enjoyed since I started raiding in BC. Below is a count down of my top 5 fights:

Death to the Immortal Guardians (and Yogg and Sara)

Sunday night. We blunder through phases 1 & 2 and with a little change in positioning somehow get Yogg-Saron down on our third attempt.

My Secret Healing Shame

I have identified a terrible healing problem within myself…. At some point over the last few weeks I’ve begun to mourn silently whenever I’m assigned to heal a tank. I don’t quite know when I made this transition; back in BC I was always happy to be in charge of our tanks. How did this internal tantrum come about? I have my suspicions that a number of incidents have occurred making me a raid healing addict.

Lath Loves the Big Freaky Brain!

Ok I really really really like the Yogg Saron fight.  It is so cool it has toppled raid boss Leotheras the Blind off his long held number 1 position of Lath’s  favourite boss fight. Well we can’t actually kill Yoggy yet…. we are still struggling with phase 3, but thats ok I know we’ll get [...]

Resto Druid 4 Piece Bonus = YUM!

I splurged out with my conquest badges last Wednesday to purchase the tier 8 chest piece – Conqueror’s Nightsong Robes meaning I was finally getting to try out the resto druid 4 piece bonus that I’ve been drooling over ever since I saw it posted on MMO Champion. Thursday night saw us in front of the lovely Freya and lucky for me I was assigned to raid healing! Rejuvenation now does an instant tick of approximately 1500 plus its regular ticks. I’m finding when assigned to raid, Rejuvenation is now contributing to approximately 50% of my healing, followed by Wild Growth and then Lifebloom.
