Regular readers may have noticed that my blog posts err towards the.. shall we say, epic in nature? I never write a sentence where a paragraph will do. In fact, I’m already doing it again, all I needed to say was “I write long blog posts”. So Krizzlybear, and everyone else who doesn’t have half a day to check their blogroll, this post is for you.
Shinano hit level 80 very recently (six level 80’s down, four to go!) and I’ve been doing instances as Feral while building up a pretty respectable Restoration set for raiding. I raided the guildbank for 4 pieces of epic leather BoEs farmed from 10 and 25 man raids. I got my Rogue, Fingers, to craft a few other pieces, tailored some others on Calli and blew some cash on the Auction House for the rest. End result, 1400+ spellpower and 800 spirit unbuffed (while specced Feral), enough to start doing Naxx 10 man after a resto respec.
Anyway, last night we’re putting together a Sartharion and Malygos raid for alts and non-raiders. We can only rustle 20 players up, so we decide to go ahead and get the “Less is More” achievements while we’re at it. With 20 people we’re not going to try anything flashy with Sartharion, so go for a simple 0 drake kill. In retrospect we could easily have handled 1 drake, but we wanted a quick kill, so that’s what we did. I was only on Shinano to get the raid invited and sorted out, and was going to switch to a better geared dps character for the kill itself, but people were getting impatient and wanted to start, so off we went.
Now if only 3.1 and dual-spec would get here!
