My guild went to Karazhan on Saturday– I unfortunately was unable to go– and they managed to get past the Opera Event in what I hear was an epic fight (something about six people dying, the tank kiting stuff around for five minutes while the healers regen’d mana, and eventually four-manning it) but then got stuck on Curator.
So… we went back. When I was available!
This fight, for those of you who haven’t done it before, works something like this: There are these electric fuzzballs that aggro on random people that you have to kill. Every so often, Curator, a giant robot, turns all blue which means he takes double damage from everyone and that’s when you have to focus on DPS’ing him.
Here’s the final video I made– after three or four false starts:

(I know the last song is ridiculously silly. Bear with me when I say it’s an inside joke of sorts. And makes the fact that the tank and Curator died within about a half second of each other even funnier.)
I’m not sure if this is a difficult fight for a hunter or if it was just hard for me because I’m not used to it. I know I do my best when I get to stand still and really dig into my shot rotation and let the crits flow. But for this fight I hardly got a chance to get in one or two shots on each fuzzball. For this reason, I had the snot beaten out of me in the DPS charts. I don’t mind though. I had fun, I had the killing blow, and I got something shiny out of it:
Feels good to have some Tier 4 on my Armory, lemme tell ya.
At some point I’d like to write detailed guides to playing a hunter in each of the Kara fights but that’s a ways off yet, right now it’s just a blast to run around and check out all the different bosses. It sort of has a “rogue’s gallery” feel to it. These are the bad guys that I’ve been hearing about since I started playing WoW about a year ago. It’s so neat to finally go “meet” them.
We went to the Chess Event after this and then called it a night. Yes, we won Chess. I’d been informed that we’d be disowned if we didn’t, so I guess that’s a good thing.
