Last night, Cayle, on his fail rogue Fayle, wanted to practice his rotations and new talents and abilities by running some random dungeons. So he, Slice on his shammy and I went and queued up and got End Time as our first one. We tried to do the Severed Ties achievement on Sylvanas in the Ruby Dragonshrine, but the lock and hunter we picked up in our group had subpar dps and we could only manage to kill one of the ghouls before the phase ended. The run went fine, no wipes, and Fayle and I even beat the two others in dps on Murozond. ><
Adoe then logs in and we invite him to our group and Slice switches over to his Druid. I see Cymre log in from my RealID, so I asked if she wanted to run some randoms with us and she said ok and I invite her along as well. I think this was her first time running a 5-man with SR; I know she’s raided with some of our guildies before in some older raids and even in JD‘s Laid Back ones. Not sure what impression she got from our guild before, but after tonight she definitely knows how crazy and fun we can be, lol.
Our next instance was Well of Eternity. Ugh, ugly nelfs! So we’re doing our thing, proceeding through the instance when we come to the second crystal and find out we can’t click on it. So we’re kinda sitting around, thinking the encounter is bugged and watching Adoe die repeatedly as he tries to stealth past the line of minions marching past. After a couple of minutes or so, Cym goes off that finds out that Illidan is still waiting at the first crystal, the one we didn’t unlock in the first place. D’oh! I told everyone in the group that I didn’t think our guild is ready for MoP yet, lol. Cym was probably thinking what kind of fail group did I get myself into. =P So we finally get to Pero’tharn after clicking all three crystals and we try to get the Lazy Eye achievement. And guess who “fayles” it for us, hint hint? Yep, the fail ninja. >< I should have known he’d effed it up, after seeing his “fayled” performance on Madness of Deathwing the night before, lol. But it was all good, the rest of the run went well and we had no more Fayle Floor Tanking.
We all queued up for another and got End Time again. And we also got the Ruby Dragonshrine and Sylvanas again and this time with our awesome dps, we were able to finally kill two ghouls and get the Severed Ties achievement.
We got the Emerald Dragonshrine and Tyrande next, so we decided to go for the Moon Guard achievement. Cym had gotten this before and suggested to leave Slice at the portal at the beginning so he wouldn’t get hit by any of the mobs while we made our way around to reach Tyrande. It wasn’t bad at all, I think Cym popped a couple heals and I was able to keep myself healed up too, though we did have one Fayle Tanks Floor, as his Alabama internetz hotel room connection went out which caused him to DC and come back to angry mobs by himself, lol. Slice then met us up at Tyrande and we finished off her off for the achievement.
So during this last encounter, Navi pops up and whispers me through RealID, asking for Lyss’s info. I think Lyss was trying to help her out with setting up Vuhdo or something. I whisper Navi back to hold on for a sec, as I’m trying to keep aggro on the mobs and keep Fayle from dying again as we’re making our way to Tyrande. I guess I was taking too long to respond back, so she logs into her Level 1 Lock that I invited to the guild a couple of weeks ago and invades our guild chat, saying how I was being mean to her! LOL! By this time, Lyss has already logged on and the two of them spam guild chat of how big of a meanie I was, Lyss even broadcasted it on RealID. LMAO!! But it was all in good fun. That’s just how our guild is, we like to pick on one another and make fun of each other and just have a good time.
After killing quickly killing Murozond again, Adoe leaves the group to fix an issue he’s having with his raid frames and Slice drops off to help him. So Fayle, Cym and I just chat it up, talking about things like our upcoming guild meet up in February, how rich Fayle is in real life and how Cym could take Slice’s spot in our raid group, since Slice kinda doesn’t have a feel for his new priest talents/spells yet, haha. Then Cym tells us that she has almost 400 pets in her pet journal!!! I think I only have like 208 and Fayle had like 71. Lol, I told Cym that Fayle hates me because I didn’t help him out with his pet number and I said I only give pets to my real friends, =P. But Fayle doesn’t care about pets anyways, I mean, he’s got Fire Anzu, what more does he need, right?
So we decided to finish the night by doing a bear mount run in Zul Aman and getting Slice his Amani War Bear. Lyss replaced Adoe in our group and off we went. Man, it is so much easier to do now, with everyone in DS gear and these new abilities, lol. We even had the time to grab two more achievements, one for not killing any of Halazzi’s totems and the other for fighting Daakara within his own blue rectangular box of shame.
We had a really good night with achievements and mount and all. Cym wished that Coolidge was on, as she said that he also needed a couple of the achievements that we got. I told her that I’d come back when they were both on to help them out with it and I’m sure the rest of the SR crew would be able to assist.
Thank you Cym and Navi for hanging out with us, we really enjoyed your company and hope you guys had fun too! You guys are pretty awesome Aussies!
