Soloing Blackrock Caverns

qweweq

Next on my soloing list, Blackrock Caverns. I was pretty sure this would be okay – except Corla. And knowing she was optional, I headed in feeling pretty optimistic of clearing most of the instance. Set up As in my last post, I have: Feral offspec: I have a pretty hybrid feral spec, tankish but without Pulverise – pretty much designed for soloing. Gear: ilvl is 387 in kitty gear + the tanky staff from Madness. Alch flask and Mark of the wild, that’s it for … Continue reading

Soloing the Stonecore

WoWScrnShot_020712_202336

Time to get back to some soloing projects. Prodded along with a small reminder I hadn’t really attempted any Cata 5mans solo, I originally considered Throne of the Tides, but seeing as every man and his worgen are doing that this week, I decided to head into the Stonecore. Set up At this stage I have: Feral offspec: I have a pretty hybrid feral spec, tankish but without Pulverise – pretty much designed for soloing. Gear: ilvl is 387 inĀ  kitty gear + the tanky staff … Continue reading

Soloing ICC 5man heroics

wqrrqew

Hopped into the Icecrown 5 man heroic dungeons this afternoon, as an ease into the weekend. I just ran through each of the three in order, following the plot. It was pretty easy, so mostly this is a quick visual account of my adventures. Setup Druid, feral kitty gear 378-391 ilvl, but mostly I stayed in bear form for easy mode AOE and cooldowns. I have a mostly kitty talent build: with a couple of tank talents thrown in. I didn’t stealth past any trash, though … Continue reading

ZA Bear run video

A video of our bear run last night, from the PoV of our main tank and glorious* guild leader, Easypeasy. For healers interested, I think I stopped and drank twice just briefly. I drank about 6ish mana pots and innervated basically on cooldown. I was flasked from our raid the night before, but it wore off part way through I think. The only thing I did special: For the lynx gauntlet I tried to avoid having hots up between pulls (to avoid cataggro death). This meant … Continue reading

I’m a healer, not your slave.

This post feels a little bit off-center with 4.1 coming out today, as it has nothing to do with the new patch at all. Rather it’s about another PuG experience that left me angry. Angry at the group’s behaviour, the attitudes and with myself. Excuse the usual PuG rant, I constantly run with really good LFD groups, but this one raised a new issue/question for me. The context I was on a priest alt. It was normal Grim Batol. Everything was going okay: paladin tank wasn’t … Continue reading

Duoing Wrath achievements

Ooze: abused.

I’d been thinking about soloing some wrath heroic dungeon achievements, for no other reason than to see if they could be done. As it happens, Shigeko was looking to polish off a few he’d not done yet, as he’d only rolled his character late in wrath. So we set out together to do a few. First off the list, heroic Azjol Nerub, to do Respect your Elders and Volunteer work. As expected, Volunteer work was an easy task with two lvl 85s. For Respect your Elders, … Continue reading

Tempest Keep images

A'lar 1680 x 1050

I tried soloing Tempest Keep today to bump my gold looted achievement along a little. Fel Reaver was challenging enough to be interesting, with Solarian was just nasty. Killed them both though, will post my experience a bit later. Took some screenies while I was there though, I love the rich glowing colours of the instance. So here are a few images to enjoy while I write:
