Tonight we did the last two and then the rest of upper and then cracked on with the harder stuff downstairs.
We had a ninja pull on Manni. Not even a case of an itchy barrage finger. This was a full out ‘ yolo’ ninja pull.
“Are we fit?” Jolly asked in his normal way before the pull timer goes out.
The yes reply came in the way of suddenly being in combat.
“Awww I was in the wrong spec” came over ts.
In my surprise at shit going off everywhere I used a potion.
Things went pretty well, then we were in the last stage.
“Right there are no markers up so everybody be at the other side of the boss.” Jolly said with an sense of hesitancy.
We instinctively went to the side where green usually is. Jolly managed to get a Red marker up for the tanks and only one person died!
I’m sure it was to set the tone for the night even if Archimond went down almost without a hitch. Jolly asked Deko to set up the groups. There was no reply.
“Is Deko here?”
“Yeah?” someone replied.
“Maybe he’s dc-ed?”
“I’m here. That’s what happens when you have your mic on mute…” he said. Eventually…
Upon entering the second phase where we should attack under the boss there were a few stragglers.
“Stack under the boss… Solo stacking… I see… ”
I was in the even number phase group, first team went in. Swirlies were all over the floor and in trying to get away I was having to run away from the boss. Then the warning went out for the second group. I ran as fast as my little legs could carry me, dodging Infernals like I was going for the winning try at Twickenham. I ended up with my toes just at the edge of the circle when they disappeared.
“Aw fuck! I missed it!”
I took my angst out on an Infernal who was next to me. I then started running away again while he chased me around the room.
The sacrifice group went in and we took down the last couple of percent. After we killed that, we went to do the rest of upper.
We started on the red corridor. Going to Soc and the angry goat.
Soc went well, Jolly only put one wonky fire line down. He then manage to follow that in a straight line before discovering ‘third times the charm’. He went down so quickly.
Next onto the goat, none of us got locked out, no ninja pulls. Nice kill.
Opala reminded us that there was a back door to Iskar.
As we were running round I had a moment of realisation.
“I need to upgrade my shit…”
“upgrade your shit…” Ketod replied, with a weary tone.
“Yeah, to make it ‘special shit’!”
“Well. You are special Ella… So it’s already special shit…” he replied, before whispering me with ‘nomnut’.
Not knowing what person was going to run in/barrage first.
During this fight we had some whoopsies.
“The bombs are not being dispelled…” Evil said.
“That’s because I don’t have the eye…” Lyra replied.
“Who has it? Jolly…..”
“I missed it that time!” he groaned.
There was some nice loot. The trinket was a hot topic.
“Oh look at the trinket. That’s got hunter loot all over it!” Jolly quipped.
It said hunter loot so much, blizz were forced to state it wasn’t hunter loot…
After the kill, everyone ran off while I was looking at gear.
“Which way are we going?” I asked, genuinely for a moment unsure.
“There is only one way to go…” Moose replied.
“Well I was… Oh, no there is only one way…”
There was groans over ts.
“Oh my God Ella” Ketod mumbled.
“I got confused!”
“You really did need all that intellect…” Jolly mused.
“You could go and talk to Kadghar for a bit?” Moose offered.
“I’m sure he’s pretty lonely up here…” I replied.
“People keep using his portals and not saying thanks…”
“Like every mage!”
We went towards Xhul and started on the dogs.
“Can we aoe?” someone asked.
“I’ve just barraged…” I replied “and used my trinket… And a few multi-shots for good measure!”
“Ella, can you not barrage…” Hellsreaper said.
In the history of telling hunters not to do something that was the worst thing ever to say.
“No!?” I blurted out.
“Every time you barrage my screen goes crazy!”
“Well I can only do it every… 20 seconds”
“So doing some maths, there’s four of you so you could set off a barrage every five seconds” Jolly mused…
“My screen would go nuts”
“There’s only three of us…” I said.
“Imagine if we all did it at the same time!” Moose pointed out.
I paused on the bridge to ‘check something out’… When I say check something out I mean I was furiously scribbling down who said what for this blog. I then on my last sentence hit auto run and then died. I laughed heartily at my misfortune.
“How did you even die…”
“I found the hole in the Bridge…”
This lead to a dumb way to die conversation between the others.
“I’ve seen monks roll down that”
“I’ve seen monks roll off the platform”
“I’ve yet to see a warrior charge off the platform…”
Jolly said nothing.
Once we had killed that we went to Fel Lord.
The eye thing caught my attention.
“What is this flying eye thing here for? The one that’s like Willy you get in children’s week…”
“You get a willy in children’s week?” Moose asked, concerned and confused.
“Oh the flying butt-hole?” Insaria added.
“Yes that’s the one”
“YES. Oh my God I fucking hate that boss” I spluttered. Getting Vietnam style flashbacks.
“Is that the one with the maze?” Jolly asked.
“Oh that was awful…” he groaned.
“That was the only boss I was glad to die on” I declared.
“I’m sure everyone was glad you were dead Ella…” Ketod quietly added.
(Yes, I did hear that!)
