I had very little time this week to play World of Warcraft. Of our two raid nights, one never got going, so we ran LFR instead. Someone in our guild still needed to go through LFR for the first time, so we ran the wing that he needed next before bed. The next raid night we got into Throne of Thunder, downed the first boss, and attempted the second. After spending three days from WoW, I returned Monday night with the goal of doing the final wing of Throne of Thunder for the first time.
When Mooglegem and I zoned into the raid, we had three stacks of Determination and were on Lei Shen. Might as well take advantage of the three stacks, kill him, and then re-queue, right? Well, we wiped two more times. In the others’ defense, there really are a lot of abilities, and you have to know when to run and when to stack. After we finally killed him, Mooglegem and I left and re-queued. We zoned back in to find ourselves about to pull Lei Shen. We pulled, wiped, and dropped group. Time to re-queue, and then we were back at Lei Shen again, although this time there was trash between me and the boss. People seemed to just run past the trash, hoping to reach the teleporter before dying. Fine! But this time, we decided to try dropping group.
Thanks, Blizzard. I wouldn’t say I’m a deserter though. I’d say I’m someone who needed to go to sleep.
We did, however, fight Nalak, The Storm Lord. I didn’t notice at first, but Darkdk was in my raid! Darkdk #1! For people not from Kil’jaeden, Darkdk is a… local celebrity? That’s what I’d call him. Some people might call him a trade troll. I suppose “Darkdk #1” is sort of his catchphrase, and according to my meters, he really was #1.
