Ah Karazhan. I love the place. My favorite nights of the week are the nights I know I'm logging to lead a band of friends and Heroes into the gaping maw of the legions in Kara who want nothing more than to turn our intrepid band into worm food.
Our daring crew last night consisted of Me (Prot Paladin), Aleks (Prot Warrior), Baconstrip (Resto Druid), Calexis (Holy Priest), Rhubarb (Holy Paladin), Wichita (Elemental Shaman), Regolos (Afflication Warlock), Condramous (Stormwind Portal Mage), Jagdelf (Beast Mastery Hunter), Origami (Feral Druid).
First we meet up with the Maiden of Virtue. I know this will sound strange after my gear rant, but what I really wanted to see her drop was Gloves of the Treemender for Bacon, or even a Shard of the Virtuous for Calexis. But she was giving up neither. Instead, she drops Iron Gauntlets of the Maiden. My gloves! These are even better than my Tier 4 gloves which drop off of Curator.
I was so excited, yet at the same time kind of bummed for Bacon. I know what its like to want a drop and not get it time after time after time.
Next up we skipped Illhoof and Aran and proceeded to Chess. Sylvara, one of our guild Rogues had asked to sub in for Chess. Since I had already done the event and I wanted Aleks to get any tank drop that may come from Chess, I left the raid and Sylvara in my place. Apparently Chess drops some ZOMG shoulders he wants. I was only too happy to oblige. The group one shots the event. Some Feral boots drop for Origami, but nothing for Sylvara or Aleks. Bummer.
We continue to work on trash and do the final pulls leading up to Prince. Did I ever mention how much I love having a Warrior with me. I got to over 16k hit points with all the buffs I had including Commanding Shout (thank you Aleks!)
We fought Prince 3 or 4 times. Our best attempt was 7% when I died. I keep getting burst down. If the Healers have to move, I'm toast. Then the final attempt, I got burst down just as their heals were about to land. I think we've really got a good shot at bringing him down soon.
I had a blast last night and I hope the rest of the raid did as well.
