The Wall

Sunday night, Heroes ventured into Kara picking up where we left off on Wednesday. It was really cool because all of Moroes trash has despawned so we walked right up to Maiden's hall way.

There's a pat that walks through that hallway. I made sure they were gone before bringing everyone in and getting ready. Somehow the stationary mobs pulled along with the pat. Wipe.

I think next time I will pull them into the other room. We cleared to Maiden with little other problems.

We decided to have our Feral Druid tank her, and he did an awesome job. It was nice to see him able to tank some after being DPS on the previous runs. His Feral tank gear is quite good. He actually gimped his DPS most of the night staying in "Bear" gear so he could pick up anything I lost.

Our first attempt at Maiden did not go well. She kept Holy Fire on the Healers and it was lights out. We did a better job with healing the healers the 2nd time around. Wichita's Grounding Totem ate Holy Fires like they were candy. She dropped some cloth bracers and the Healing Totem, both of which we already had. Void Crystals all around!

After Maiden we cleared the room with Karena's Log. Finally managed to pull the room without killing the tank.

Next up was Opera. We got Big Bad Wolf. Of all the opera events, this one is the easiest to me. This time however, I got turned into Little Red Riding Hood. The only thing I can think happened is that I must have lost aggro right before he threw the debuff.

The Wolf dropped the epic healing cloak (gratz Bacon) and the epic Healing Libram, which I took as the only class capable of equiping it. Joy!

With our goals accomplished for the night, we needed to decide what to do. We still had some time left, so we decided to clear up to Curator.

I absolutely hate Curator's trash. Those little mana leeches just destroy my ability to do....well anything.

We finally got Curator's room cleared and discussed the fight. We don't have an Arcane Resist Bolt Eater geared up so we tried it as best we could.

First attempt we got him down to 60% or so. Not bad. Flares were a problem. Origami had to run all over the place to pick them up, and they were killing our healers.

Our second attempt we wiped at 33%. 33%!! Wow. I know we can get this guy, and get someone their Teir 4 gloves.

By now it was getting late and we had already run over our time.

Curator's a really strange fight for the tank in that everything is kind of going on around you. The fight is much more about the Flares than the Curator himself.

It looks like the mantle of Raid Leader is being passed to me. Here's hoping I can lead us to progression without becoming the very thing many of us have tried to get away from.
