OpenRaid – Heroic Ruby Sanctum 25 man Complete!

Sorry for the OpenRaid spam, just trying to get many of these complete before I have to grind out levels in Pandaria next week. =)  This raid was led by Nananananan (lol!) from Zuluhed.  I’ve only attempted RS 25 man once before and we never completed it after 10 tries.  This run took 5 tries, after people learned to drop the debuff AWAY from the raid and peeps stopped dying to cutters in the Twilight Realm.

The weird thing about this achievement is that it says its worth 20 points, but it only gave my 10 according to the Armory.  Hmmm, oh well, lol.

One thing I want to mention that I noticed just recently….I use the Multishot addon to capture screenshots of my achievements and boss kills and didn’t know that they now added a timestamp at the top of your screenshot, showing your toon’s name, level, class, raid/instance, date, time and server you were on when the shot was taken (apologies for my Titan Panel getting in the way ><).

Calling the Grand Crusade and More Dragons!

More of the same from the previous night, as SR went old raid hunting again Wednesday night.  We had Van, Lyssi, Slice, Moog, Tel, Adoe, Shadey, Bobcat, Chewy and me.  Trial of the Grand Crusader on heroic 10m was our first stop.  We thought that we would run into trouble, trying to go for the achievements while the raid was set to heroic, but we quickly found out and we definitely had plenty of dps to bypass a lot of the mechanics.  We killed Gormok so fast that the Snobolds almost didn’t come out for the Upper Back Pain achievement, lol.

Jaraxxus was more of the same, he went down pretty quick after we waited for two Mistresses of Pain to spawn from the portal.

I forgot that only 6 Faction Champs come out on 10-man, so with the 10 of us, we made quick work out of them.

We also got Salt and Pepper achievement on the Twin Valkyrs fight for those who didn’t have it.  Then we dropped down and waited to take Anub out.  And waited.  And waited.  And he never showed up.  We thought that we killed the Valkyrs so fast that Anub was waiting to spawn on a timer, but that wasn’t the case.  Apparently the raid bugs (lol) out if you change the raid difficulty while inside the raid.  So we weren’t able to complete ToTGC.  Oh well, I’ll remember to change it next time before we zone in.

Then it was off to kill more dragons.  Onxyia’s Lair was next.  We kept it at 25m for a chance that the mount would drop, but no luck for us tonight.  We missed out on She Deep Breaths More and Many Whelps! Handle It!  but we’ll get them next time.

The last stop was Halion in the Ruby Sanctum.  I think there were a few people who had never seen him before, RS was that “filler raid” in between the end of ICC and the beginning of Cataclysm.  We died once on a trash pack, but the rest of the raid went pretty quick and after a quick debrief from our Adoe Addon, Halion was out for the count.

Chewy had not seen ToTGC or RS before tonight, so it was pretty cool to bring him along for the ride.  Grats to everyone again on their cheeves!
