4th birthday!

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday Royal Jesters,
Happy birthday to you!

It was the guilds forth birthday earlier on in the week and to mark the occasion there were festivities to bring everyone together. There was a transmog competition, a quiz and a pvp knock out tournament.
RT2 had hoped that we could start an hour earlier on Sunday and try mythic Hellfire Assault but alas, seeing as most of us are grownups with responsibilities like children, who don’t want to go to bed early so mummy and daddy can play wow, we were destined to be short on numbers.
So on that note we decided to get to Highmaul. With that it meant that a few of us could get the achievement for doing certain bosses on HC and who doesn’t like achievement points?

We made our way over and upon landing it was apparent that we had forgotten in an instant that we could fly. The last time we were over here we had to run to the raid, dodging horde and mobs alike. If someone got caught then it was tough-tits and you left them. No one wanted to spend 10 minutes ressing to only be killed again. Danue pointed out that our mounts wings actually worked and we took to the skies.
Most of us were gathered up outside when Jolly gave out a ‘call to arms’ as he was being attacked at the Goblin flight path. Two Hordies were attacking him and as we coordinated or efforts and flew back to him, he told us they had buggered off.
“It took so long for them to kill me they gave up and left” he laughed.
“Autobots, stand down” Opala added.

We went back again. And this time got in.
Old habits took over and we headed up to Bladefist.
“Don’t forget the tigers in this” I started… “and he’s going to do chain hurl as well, where the closest five will be thrown into the stands”
“I’m not sure he’s going to last that long…” Deko chimed in.
He lasted long enough for us to kill him before he needed to be dragged into a fire pillar. My marking of them had gone to waste. /cry

I lead the charge onto the next boss but was apparently going the wrong way. Upon doubling back on myself I ensued that I brought friends with me. I say friends in the loosest possible terms as they seemed to be quite angry to see me.
Once dealt with, we went the correct way and had Insaria cloak us to get past a group of mobs. It was going well until Alune was snatched out by a chain and we all started running around in circles, not sure if we should help and leave the cloaking circle or try and stay hidden.
There was a conversation about two hunters that I had no idea who they were going on about but thought I’d throw my two cents in.
“Remember those two hunters? Those girls, they were good…”
“Two hunters, one pet?” was my input.
“Yeah, those as well”

We got to Twins and upon entering the room it was decided that we should do it like lfr and pull the room.
We actually put markers down again to use. This time they lasted long enough to use Quake.
“Don’t get hit by fire” Jolly asked.
“Aw fuck…”
“Did you get hit by fire?” Alune asked.
“Of course I did” I replied.

Making our way up to Ko’ragh we waited for Moose to get in. I went into auto pilot and started going on about the barrier and needing to soak the orbs.
“I seriously doubt that he’s going to last that long…”
Dang this being over geared thing is hard to get your head around. Especially considering the last time we were here was a year ago!

image

I put up the markers for old times sake. This confused some of them.
“What are all the colours for?”
“Well, when he came out and hit one of you with his massive hammer, you would go and move to the next marker. Don’t worry, I’m just doing it for a screenshot…” I said as I was tweeting it out.
We got the the first barrier and then he fell over. Onwards!

Going up the stairs to the giant outside platform, someone pulled the mobs there.
“What are we doing?! You can sneak past all of these…” I blurted as I was suddenly in combat.
We all attacked them for a good five minutes before we realised they weren’t dying and more were spawning.
“What is going on?”
“What even is this?”
“Guys, let’s get to the door…”

Killing the guard we went through the portal with a shout of “don’t run forward!”
Taking out the guards in the portal room; in front of the door and in the throne room as well, we braced ourselves for the might that is/was Imperator.
We did zero tactics. Complained about having to wait 15 seconds for the wave of ghosts. Complained that he transitioned too quickly. Complained that nothing hurt.

Once we had killed him we went back to Hellfire.
Landing on Iskars doorstep, Danue noticed that it was called ‘Iskars Clutch’
“Have you noticed the name?” she said. “Iskars Clutch!”
“This place is clutch!” I added. Which resulted in a troll of Chris for his many moons ago use of the word clutch. Which Moose remembered fondly it seems…
image

Jolly was about to put a pull timer up when I felt the need to point something out.
“Are you putting up markers?”
“Oh fuck me” he sighed “Yes I am…”

image

There was also the issue of Jolly not being in the slightest bit ready…

After we got the boss down there was some congratulations in order.
“I was to congratulate Ketod for lasting longer than I did!” Hellsreaper said.
Ketod? He stayed silent…

Raiding funnies

WoWScrnShot_121515_214315

Our attentions turned to Soc upstairs tonight, practice to get him down this reset so we can progress with Fel lord on Thursday. Markers went up and tactics were explained.
“During phase two we need to dps down the starcallers…” Jolly started to say, confused laughter rippled out over ts. “Is that what they’re called? Starbringers?”
“Ummm I don’t think so…”
“What are they called?” Jolly mused.
“Shadowbringers?” was added into the mix as undoubtedly nearly everyone opened up the dungeon journal to see what the fuck they werecalled.
“Shadowcallers!”
“Ah that’s it”
“We were close…”
Now satisfied we knew who exactly we were killing we made sure we were all aware about the ghosts and stacking up correctly.
Team hunter (that’s Deko, Moose and I) knew our jobs. Ghost duty. Jolly was taking the construct and everything was going to go swimmingly.
Alas, the best made plans and all that meant that we were a little wobbly to say the least.
All went well during the first phase and the portal was on the side where you enter the room.The green shit on the floor was placed and Jolly wasn’t as keen this time to take ghosts to the face.Team hunter got into position and got ready. “Ghosts” I said as they appeared. Three barrages went off.
“Errr we have Trash, we better wipe it…” Deko said as we were a little confused as to where they came from.
“Barrage through the walls!” Moose added as we all stood in shit to die.
“We should clear them just to be safe”
“Were they the ones by the stairs?”
“Yep”
“Bloody hunters”
“I don’t think it was me?”
“it’s like when you have Boomkins, blame one, blame them all… It’s just because we’re so op…”
As we got to the Trash and cleared them up Moose was bouncing around in the door way.
“It’s a pretty thick wall. That’s some skill to shoot through it!”
“And magic arrows!”

image

Like something from the Blair Witch Project...

We set off again and this time it was kinda clean.
Jolly put the green stuff down again, with Deko softly having an ocd attack over the placement on ts. I wasn’t sure what he was saying but it was in a pitch only dogs could hear…
The portal switched position just as Jolly put another row of fire.
“The portals switched… Oh shit. This is going to hurt.” Deko said as team hunter got to organising stuns.
“Ranged, time to get your shit together!”
Jolly put another line down. However, it was only in the general direction of the portal.
“Oh my God, that is not a straight line…” he said as we froze to admire what he had done. The fire was kinda diagonally across the portal. If I wasn’t laughing so hard I would have taken a screen shot, or better still, a selfie but once again all I can manage is to crack out my amazing paint skills to illustrate what happened…
image

At one point, I contracted the ‘green circle of doom’ disease. At this point Deko and I were stood next to one another and as I moved away to my left, so did he. As we both kept running in the same direction as the other was going in a futile effort to get away from one another, the Benny Hill sketch was finished when I sqawked over ts “Waaaaah! Go the other way”. By this point, he also had the cooties and we had positioned our circles beautifully.

Despite the fire being all over the floor, and the ghosts having a whale of a time chasing people we killed it. It was better than last time! Onward to the goat!
image

This one was fun. Mostly because I, along with 4.5 others (Blackdahlia had his Monk thingy outside the gate), did nothing.
We were all in position around the boss and we’re just running through a few pointers when suddenly we had an epic ninja pull. (Theres a video about this…) some of us beat a hasty retreat and as the gates went up. There was a group of us outside.
With nothing to do but watch as they went for it we relaxed. We had a healer with us so we should have been fine.
“I like how team hunter all got out…” I said as we watched the rest of them batter the boss.
The big hammer appeared on us outside and we all stacked up. Deko and I succumbed to it. Leaving three still physically there we watched with the advantage of being dead.
The font of corruption came out and it was survived Moose got the hammer and stacked with Lyra, the healer. Watching the purple circle get smaller her fate was inevitable and gracefully she flopped to the floor as Moose hopped away.
image

While we were pissing around outside, all their hard work inside paid off and they did kill it to much laughter. Not quite to the book but a kill is a kill!

Is it fair?

I realise that it’s been a long time since my last post. I have so much stuff to type up but alas, it lost out to typing up my assignments and getting A’s (go me!  I digress…)

We killed Archimond on Sunday, great stuff! We did have a few wobbles but after five pulls or so, we had him down.

image

One thing that was a hiccup was the chains and breaking them in order. I use dbm and doing this boss with this group was the first experience I’d had. When we got to the chains part I noticed that amidst the other flurry of text on my screen, it said what chain number I needed to break. ‘Great!’ I though. ‘now I don’t need to be turning my camera all over the place to see who has done what’.
Yeah. Dbm doesn’t like to make it that easy.

Dbm tells you what position in the chain breaking queue you are. Which is nice! Big letters fill your screen. Im always third (stupid alphabet) but I get this announcement.

ZIONXI BREAK CHAIN: THIRD

(or something like that, I was tempted to take a screenshot but thought that instead of tweeting, I should probably be killing the boss…)

image

This is someone else’s screenshot showing the chain. Now when this first happened I was expecting something like the below shot when I needed to break it…

image

But no… That would be too easy on a fight like this! So they give you this…

image

Well, not quite. They do however demand that while you’re running around screaming at being chased over ts that you steady your nerves with a little counting puzzle…

image

Wtf dbm! You’re expecting a group of people who are crying because the imaginary Wolf thing with dreadlocks is chasing them and trying to bite their arses to then have enough mental prowess to complete a puzzle? No no no no. What you get is this…

image

Such fun…
Implement this plox.
image

Pugging

image

We had a raid last night that didn’t quite go according to plan.
Starting at 8:30 anyway, we were missing a tank and two healers which meant we had to go to the glorious world of pugs.
Which was fine, we had done it before. However this time it took us over an hour to find the people we needed.
First tank shows up, gets here and then says they need to go.
A healer joins but all they are doing is server hopping.
Another healer joins and stays.
Then we get a ranged. A Warlock! Summons all round!!! COOKIES!
A tank.
Final healer.
Sorting the groups out (as we were starting on Kilrogg) things went swimmingly!
No one died. Everyone got in the visions… I had heartseeker right before my group and seamlessly swapped with Frank…

While we were waiting for people in Kilroggs room it was noticed that I had something on my head.

Frank: what’s that parasite on your head?
Me: that’s a bird pretending to be Leatherface…
Frank: Pepe… Whenever I hear that name I just think of a Mexican
Me: or Pepe Le Pew!
F: nope it’s still a Mexican name… What’s that thing you hit with a bat?
Me: a moron?
Ketod: ellas…
Me: a piñata!
Frank: yes! That’s it
Me: Ketod… Did you just say ellas?
Ketod: I insulted you and you didn’t even realise… Well I’m still in the group…
Me: I’m tolerating it…
Ketod: tolerating it because you don’t have enough healers???
Me: …yes…

We got to Gorfiend and the mini boss went down before rather smoothly. Coordinating the group of three hunters to stand in the circles that do the aoe damage they went down so quickly.
We got organised as Gorfiend was crawling out of his pit.

Me: I didn’t die!!! Why have I lost Pepe?!? Oh. It might have been an hour.  Fuck my life…
Ketod: jesus christ ella get a grip woman…

Gorfiend was started well and we got to the first feast of souls. Adds were dead and we were going for it. Suddenly people were dropping like flies.
I turned my camera around to see what the fuck was killing us and I was greeted my the crone mini boss. It took a few seconds to work out that it was her but when I saw the purple pools you have to stand in I knew we had some how annoyed the gods of blizzard.
We fake wiped it, ressed the dead and had a good chuckle at it.
The next attempt was smooth as silk.

We were going to go to Xhul but the three we pugged in left. Jolly started organising an archimond group for ring upgrades. Xozox (Zoz-Zox) asked to join.
Oz: I can come
Jolly: you’re going to have to remind me who you are…
Me: it’s Oz!
Jolly: look, I might not sound as old as Grumpy
Ketod: oi!
Jolly: but I’m getting there…

Ketod did say something that rang true. I’ve been having fits of hysterical laughing over things in the past couple of raids. “does this mean you’re actually having fun again?” he asked.
It does. And now we’re more or less on our feet again it’s good to be able to stop stressing over it and enjoy raiding and having fun.
As Jollys lad would say: Smash keys, smash boss, get loot… And have a bloody good laugh while doing it.

More tales from Twitter!

I seriously have had a spam overload to the guild unofficial Twitter account.

One thing that would be nice is to be able to look through the last few screenshots/selfies taken and chose what one to post. The amount of times I’ve taken a few in quick succession to get that perfect shot and then have to go through the folder on my computer to find it… I digress but idea for you Blizz!

While scrolling through my time line I found a few more photos with little stories behind them. There’s a whole post going to be needed on the lfr we did in Highmaul not long after we got our cameras! However, here are some that are from the last couple of days.

Repair bill

image

I’d taken a moment to go afk after we got to our ‘call it’ point. People were using their hearthstones or a Mage portal to vacate the raid.
I was stood there minding my own buisness when I got back to my laptop to see the boss attacking me. As I died and expressed my confusion with a subtle exclamation of ‘what the fuck?’ over ts.
There were a few sharp intakes of breath as my health went from full to zero in seconds.
Fenrir then explained, trying to hold in the laughter, that he was trying to kill Marvv and I ended up being in the way and subsequently flattened.
Marvv essentially skipped away laughing as I took a fist to the face and Fenrir had behaved like a true paladin and hearthstoned out as well.
I think I did get ressed by someone, even though Jesse put his foot down at doing it.
(Fenrir did pay my repair for that later, bless him!)

@nickclegg
image
We had the dubious joys of Nick Clegg joining us for a clear. He buckled under pressure a fair amount (as in real life).
Nick Clegg gets booed whenever he logs in. Despite it just being Rawls at the other end of the keyboard, when Nick Clegg logs in that’s it. The gloves are off!
“Oh look who just logged in…”
“Booooooooooooooo”
It did prove rather amusing when on Iron Maidens in lfr when one of the healers, after that long, suddenly realised who exactly they were healing.
[Raid chat]: I’ve just seen the tanks name and laughed so hard
(Over ts)
Rawls you’ve been spotted…
What? Oh…. HAHA!

Which leads very nicely onto…

Nick Clegg killed us all
image
I don’t think there that is really much to say to this. We were counting on Nick Clegg and he let us down… twice! and took half his raid team with him.
Bad Cleggy!
It was also in this raid where we realised once we got in, that we were in the dubious position of not having any healers we trusted. We were not expecting miracles but at least we had two tanks we could count on! (Almost)

Heroic Bladefist

We killed this! WE KILLED THIS!

I remember reading somewhere ‘even if one person is left alive, a kill is still a kill’ and we had everyone left alive. Not.

Apparently the mechanics are the same, he just hits harder. Well, they were kinda the same. Apart from the horrendous bug we encountered where Bladefist would switch targets mid beserker rush and half the raid would get eaten.
I’ve always been a fan of standing near the pillars so I’m prepared for the rush but the boss moved quite quickly so our usual tactic of just looking up and seeing where a pillar was did not quite cut the mustard. We used world markers on them to call out where the pillars were and melee would have to move to an opposing colour to make sure they were out of the way.
It wasn’t clean by any means. It took five wipes to get it down but each time we were getting closer.

The only thing of real importance I said all night (apart from calling out mechanics) was to “make sure your nappy is strapped on guys!” Holy crap by the end of it we needed it!

The last pull things were going ok. A few people had died but we were burning him down as best we could. Group one went up when they should do, they killed who they needed to. It then all unraveled slightly at the end.

Blunnerz was the only healer with both tanks and the smattering of dps left alive.
Blunnerz died
Dps 1 died
Tank went down
Dps 2 went down
Tank 2 went down
Boss had 300 health left
Nullflows health bar went down to a glowing red line
Boss had 65 health
Squealing/weeping/hysteria/praying over ts
Boss goes down
FUCKING EAR BLOWING SCREAMING OVER TS
Everyone is dead

Purgatory. Saved. Our. Asses.
Nullflow is a demi-god for the rest of the night.

It didn’t go unnoticed that we only had one player left alive at the time of the kill. Although, it may have been forgotten when Blunnerz noticed that is ring had dropped from the boss.

We went to the Butcher after we stopped screaming.
We had a pull issue. The Butcher seemed to be very very angry about something. Fenrir, who was on his pally, managed to pull him by just standing there.
Cue a mad panic and everyone running around. As we tried to regain control we inevitably got slaughtered.
Running back in I paused to eat, a ready check went up and with only ten seconds to go until I got my food buff I clicked yes but did warn I was still eating.
“Why did you click ready if you’re still eating?” Blunnerz joked.
“There isn’t a pull timer yet!”
Up went the pull timer.
“Omg don’t go! DON’T GO!”
Many messages appeared in raid chat of ‘don’t go’ right at the end of the rather short pull timer but to no avail. We went.
We did manage to scramble into position. And start the hokey-cokey phase.
With the first bounding cleave we got scattered and also half the raid went down.
I, somehow, managed to land on top of a pillar. I stayed there as my feign death had somehow been removed and was on cool down. I just hoped that the boss would think there was no one left and ignore me if I just didn’t hit him.
As the last man standing I half breathed a sigh of relief as the boss was miles away just standing there.
Then like a scene from Hellraiser, a hooked chain came flying out and dragged me towards the boss where he promptly smashed me with his mace and I dropped to the floor, quite dead.
[LOL] Xérath typed into raid chat. [He was all like “don’t think I’ve forgotten about you!”]

Danue was having an issue with her boss mods when we settled back in by the stairs. We sorted her out and someone asked how a pull timer was activated. We had already stated we were ready and Jolly put one up for five seconds. He charged at the boss and I shot it as Blunnerz and Rawls were both shouting not to go.
“Oh Ella!”
“What! Jolly charged!?”

At this point we decided to just switch to normal and take a five minute break.
Needing to exit the arena to reset we tentatively walked outside. There were a couple of hordies waiting for their raid team to arrive. For which Marvv decided was an ideal time to kill things.
A little bit of pvp went down…
I was just standing by the portal being targeted by hordies who were about to die. For the life of me I couldn’t see where they were before they disappeared.
We then realised after Rawls had a nosey at what we were up to, that we had been ganking raiders from Exploding Lab Rats. Upon learning this we started pleading for people to get out of the raid so we could swap it to normal and get back in before the rest of the Lab Rats team showed up and handed our asses to us.
“Dead people get our of the instance!”
“Can we get in now?!”
“There are hordies here!”
“Omg let me in!!!”

Once we were almost all back in we got the trash down while the last few got back.
We were a little bit slack in the actual boss. With Marvv and Nullflow managing to jump down from the stands in to a tiger pit.
Gio also had a ‘hope no one saw that’ moment.
“Pillar at Blue”
“Beserker rush in two”
“Gio”
I was positioned in between the blue and orange pillar and watched Gio run in front of me towards Blue. Beserker rush was ended and I paned my camera around slightly as I noticed Gio was almost dead. Gio was also nowhere to be seen.
I thought about it for a moment and figured that he had just run away quite fast.
My brain however wouldn’t let the matter rest.
“Did you fall in a tiger pit?”
“Nooooo…”
I fell silent.
The boss went down. Gear disenchanted (LOL)

Later on, I still wasn’t convinced…
image
AH-HA!

Playing with the twins…

Tuesday was our last lockout day before we made the decision to clear again or to extend. We were on twins.

We made our way over and the usual conversation started on ts.
“Is there Horde there?”
“Yes”
“Yeah there’s a million of them”
“Run in like a boss”

I’d landed at the flight path right after Danue and started following her in. There were a lot of Horde that’s for sure. As I take so long to load up, I’d been attacked on my way over by a mob that I couldn’t see, crossing everything that the scenery would load properly before I got to the entrance I arrived at the steps on my invisible mount with only the dots on my mini maps as clues as to how many Horde were there. Running up, I still couldn’t see any players, but I charged forward and slammed myself into an invisible wall where the portal should have been. Obviously I got targeted. An Alliance player flailing against a wall was too good of an opportunity to pass up. Just when I thought I had met my doom and would have been the first casualty of the night, the big glowing circle appeared around me and my loading screen popped up. Take that suckers!

There was a little congregation of people on the top step before the hallway trash for the twins. Someone threw a zeppelin at me and as I was mounted, I managed to confuse it by running around it in a circle until it disappeared (I did at some point completely miss another one being thrown at me and only realised when I opened my bags some time later) we waited for the rest of our merry bunch to make it through the gauntlet of Horde, some decided to pass the time shapeshifting with toys and playing with robots.

image

Watching them fight it out in their tiny death match it reminded me of a program I used to love.
“It’s like watching Robot Wars…” I mused.

All of a sudden I had two of Blunnerz stood in front of me. I didn’t really pay much attention until Danue changed appearance… And looked like me. Gio arrived and he looked like me. And then Blunnerz… What the hell was going on?

image

Wait a moment. I look like Marvv…
There was a whole lot of changes going on and no one was saying anything about who was doing it.
I was quite impressed with the Goren. It was quite cute rolling around. While wandering around to see everyone I got turned into and and was rolling my way through people’s legs. Awww yisss.

Everyone had arrived and whatever state we were in we started.
To be honest, I don’t think we were paying much attention to the mobs and were just concerned with what we looked like. I got turned into Rawls (who had stepped out of his Princess dress and put on his ninja costume)
“OI!” He said. “You’re no ninja”
“I’m a tank!” I gleefully replied. As Jolly charged-rolled up the corridor to meet the big add as a goren.

Distracting as it was, we did manage to get all the mobs in the boss room down and started to gather at the back of the room. Going through tactics and setting out our markers we and a final run through in raid chat.
Tanks at Blue,
Ranged at Green,
Whirlwind to Red,

It seemed simple enough.
“Rawls red is the cross” Blunnerz added on ts.
“I know that…” Rawls quipped.
“Haha, yes please don’t take whirlwind to green” I laughed.
“Kill all of the Ranged…” Fenrir added a little too enthusiastically.

Naturally, we cocked up somewhere along the lines and it all went a little wrong. A tank died. And then another one. And then whirlwind went to green…

Dusting ourselves off we ran back. Ate, rebuffed and checked flasks etc all in record time. It was as though if we were quick enough ‘resetting’ then it didn’t count.
It was at that point that someone got creative with one person who happened to be in wolf form.
image
And it resulted in this.

Still with the majority of us completely in the dark about how this was happening. We suddenly went from ‘raid mode’ to ‘PUPPIES!’ in about two seconds. It was magical, little doggies running around, sniffing, having a scratch.
“What is doing this?”
“How are we turning into Wolves?”
“LOOK AT ALL THE DOGGIES!”

Turns out, jewelcrafting can provide something much much better *cough* than gems (who needs those anyway!) The delight that is Reflecting Prism And as you can see were not the only ones to have dabbled in the art of ‘Raiding with Wolves’
image

image

Once everyone was a wolf there was only one thing left to do. Line up and dance!
image

Cute as it looked, there was something missing…
image

Moon Moon!
In my haste to get screenshots I’d manage to accidentally open a ton of tabs and activate Aspect of the Fox… It could have been a lot worse, it could have been Hero I set off (not that I’ve ever done that before *cough cough*)

image

With all of us dancing away and silently watching our majestic group. Raiding had certainly been forgotten about four a while.
image

That was until Narlos got over excited and one can only assume tried to hump the bosses leg.
Our dance was abandoned as the wolf pack tried to run for the door.
image

“Run doggies! RUN!”
“Omg the doors shut!”
“Weapon!”
image

It was carnage. We were running around everywhere. I forgot I could still attack… It was only when I got a heal that I remembered.
image

It’s safe to say that the Wolves never made it. Although we did get the stupid boss down after that, for the rest of the raid we didn’t change into Wolves again…

Ko’ragh
Truly living up to the huntard name, for some reason I could not work out the mechanics for this boss. The shield in particular. I resorted to whispering Blunnerz many times to clarify what I should be doing and when. Looking back, I thought that you couldn’t go into the circle in the middle until the boss ran into it… derp.

We kinda had a plan for this. We were going to run right every time we had the big shit circle on the floor. Considering how many issues we had with left and right last time on Tectus I was skeptical this was going to work.
First plan was to eat a lot of food.
image
After Xérath was convinced I wasn’t dead as I did eventually click ready we all agreed to poke the boss and see what happened.
Poke we did and death happened.

When we decided that stacking loosely wasn’t working we spread out. Insta-death to a tank and wipe number two was in the bag.
Setting up again on this try we got a shit circle to land half in and half out of the central bit. It was quite handy for the adds and still left the soaker enough room to stand. When we wiped on that attempt we had a brain wave.
“Can we force one of them there and then spread out?”
“We can stack on the first fire and then use a cd?”
Two seconds later we were dead.
“Ok that didn’t work”

Spreading out again we had another crack. But something was telling us that tonight wasn’t going to be our night. We just all seemed to be out of sync. We couldn’t get a grip on the adds, one minute the tanks had them in a shit circle and the next, they were running around eating people.

I was still all very confused about the whole orb thing. I couldnt for the life of me work out what was my cue to go in and as Blunnerz have the call out prompt for the next one to get ready to run, I lost my head.
“Who? WHO IS GOING IN!”
“me, I’m in” Narlos announced. Cool as a cucumber.
In my flapping around for some reason my brain told my fingers to make my char stand on the green swirly shit.
Boom. Dead.
“Oh for fucks sake…”
I couldn’t help it. I just laughed.

While we were having a mini meltdown about why the fuck this thing WASN’T DYING on our ressing from the last wipe, Blunnerz decided enough was enough and I agreed, so did everyone else. We still for some unknown reason, ran back to the boss room and took up our positions. Fenrir decided to leave us with a little momento and pulled the boss.
Lightning bubbled and hearthed while the rest of us stood their trying to get out alive.
“Did lightning just bubble – hearth?”
“Yes, yes he did”
“Haha jammy!”
*Boss goes mad and obliterates us*
“Aw, I was two seconds away from portaling out!”
“run in!”
