Night of Achievement

So how was your night last night?

Thursday night we decided to try to knock out some achievements. We had been banging our heads against Arthas for two weeks and we needed a break.

Flu Shot Shortage took a couple of tries to get it right. Luckily for me, my job really didn't change much. I just had to tank him same as I always do. We had a tougher time with Dances with Oozes. We made it just a straight DPS burn, nobody moved and Boston (Blood DK) would taunt a big one if it formed. We had a couple of close attempts and were on the verge of just killing him normally, when we finally got it. I tanked him as I always do and a late Ardent Defender proc kept me going for those last few precious percent. On both of these achievements I felt like our healers really did an amazing job.

Nausea, Heartburn, and Indigestion was probably the toughest of them all. But it's remarkable (ergo, I am remarking on it) how much our DPS has improved. We pushed Professor P into Phase II with only one experiment getting out. Our guys did a great job kiting, but I'm going to single out Jagdorc (SV/MM Hunter), who got picked to kick the Orange Slime twice. I don't know what it is, but Hunters seem to know how to kite. Ardent Defender gets another nod on this fight as it worked beautifully keeping me alive. There are times I would still love to have Last Stand, but I really like the flavor of Ardent Defender. It feels very Paladin.

I remember the first night we ever fought Rotface, Festergut and Professor P and thinking about how impossible these achievements sounded. It's amazing to me that we've gotten them. I'm proud of our team for getting these done.
