Push it to the Limit

Random blog title has nothing to do with anything!

SSC and Tempest Keep are both down as we continue our two-man runs. My new main is starting to look pretty snazzy now, thanks to transmog.

Tier 5? Tier 5! Just need to get the chestpiece to drop now.

In other news I find it amusing that I now have to tag posts with Burning Crusade content as “classic WoW,” seeing as I invented that tag during Burning Crusade for vanilla stuff.

Well THAT'S something I didn't think I'd see


Namely, a certain betrayer known as Illidan.

So yeah, I got into a Black Temple today. About 18 or so of us all-told, mostly level 80 though we had a sprinkling of 70 and mid-70 alts who wanted in on the gearfest.

My thoughts?

Okay, first of all, to all of you who did this at 70 and fought those four guys all lined up, what’re they called, Council? Ohmygosh. My deepest condolences.

This is how the fight goes by the way:

“OMG! He’s at 5% health!”

(one minute later)
“OMG! He’s at 4% health!”

(one minute later)
“OMG! He’s at 3% health!”

and so forth. So this fight took like 15 minutes by the way. I wanted to cry.

…but on the same token, it felt really-freaking hardcore. I think a part of it was because this run was being hosted by a pretty hardcore guild that is one of the top raiding guilds on the server and had BT on farm pre-nerf. So they were pretty serious about things on Vent and while on one hand it was somewhat off-putting to poor lil’ casual me, to hear people being critiqued pretty heavily in voicechat if they screwed up… on the other hand, for one of the first times ever it felt like I was participating in a hardcore encounter, ya know? Because I was trying very hard not to screw up so I felt like I sort of had heightened senses, so to speak. I’m somewhat infamous for taking several tries on a boss to finally “get” an encounter, but with this group, I listened well and nailed everything the first time, because I didn’t want to let them down. It was refreshing and stressful, at the same time. I don’t think I could do it full-time, though.

But yeah, I have no idea how you 70s did it. So like, this Bloodboil guy? My word. I wanted to curl up in the fetal position somewhere and never leave. You have no idea how glad I am I didn’t volunteer to bring my healer instead. I salute you all.


It was epic. Kinda short seeing as we were all overpowered for it, but epic nonetheless. Glad I got to see it.

Grats to the random level 76 rogue who won a Warglaive, by the way.

And now for something completely different! I have a “Hunter’s Guide to Naxx Bosses” all polished up and ready to go, however, I worry it may be too long. So I leave it to you lovely readers to decide: do you want the whole entire shebang in one tasty post, or would you prefer I split it up by wings or in half or something? Once I get a decent “vote” on it I’ll post it right away. /nods
