I Feel for the Person that Left This LFR

50min in the queue, zoned into an LFR with 3 stacks of Determination and promptly 1-shot Garrosh with next to no experience on him besides a few wipes in 10m for phase 1.

It pays to have patience, people!

On a side note, the bad thing about 1-shotting Garrosh this week is that I still don't really know what the hell is going on in that fight. Avoid stuff, kill adds, DPS MCed people is about what I got out of it... hopefully it's a lot more interesting on normal mode!

Standing Achievement

It's been a while since I last concentrated on getting some Achievements done, but I realised recently that I was close to another milestone. Perfect opportunity to knock over the Timeless Isle ones and hit 17000:

...or, I could have been procrastinating because I hate farming mobs and I still haven't got to Honoured with Emperor Shaohao yet. Possibly. *cough*

The Sound of a Body Hitting the Floor

Yep, Thok has fallen to our efforts on our second night of raiding this week, meaning we have a full night tomorrow to figure out Blackfuse.

It's pretty exciting to be on the frontline, yet again beating LFR and Flex gating to see new bosses. Although LFR has its merits - not having to use 10m to learn fights is one - I do think encounters are a little diluted when you go through an almost guaranteed version of it first.

Thok was actually the first boss this tier where the thought of perhaps needing a gear buffer (ie better gear to guard against our skills or lack thereof) crossed my mind, but on our last pull of the night (naturally!) we finally managed to get to the end with everybody alive.

It's nice to know that even though our limited raid comp forces both hunters to use specific pets to cover buffs, we can still progress well. The only real problem we still have is a lack of people on reserve - one person away is probably OK, 2 away means scrounging in Infamy or Trade chat for help.

We've been lucky so far in that we've only had to completely skip one raid night due to lack of numbers... but I don't think that will hold for long.

Timeless Grind

Anyone else find the mob grinding for Emperor Shaohao rep tedious? The fact that I'm only Friendly with them shows how little patience I have with mob grinding, particularly as I have less time to play now than I used to.

I don't, in fact, keep track of Achievements, pets or mounts as much as I used to, since there isn't any way I can keep up with all the new additions at the moment.

Not that that's a bad thing; at least I'll always have something to do. I just don't feel like I have any particular thing to work towards right now, apart from keeping my gear up to date for raiding.

Oh well, I suppose I'll get my rep up some day... there is one thing I'm up to date with, after all - I have pretty much every single useful port item in my bag for ultimate mobility and I don't intend to skip this one!
