Dec 18th 2008 8:29AM I got some Valorous gauntlets and a nice 22-slot bag off of Sartharion. A nice payoff for slaving through heroics to gear for the raids.
Dec 6th 2008 5:24PM I find that the majority of player deaths to Heigan are caused by players running too far into the first and fourth safe zones, causing them to be unable to return to the next safe zone in time.
This hurts especially on heroic, where the splashes do much more damage.
Dec 4th 2008 4:31PM I agree wholeheartedly that 25-man Naxx is undertuned. We went through the plague and arachnid quarters last night, one-shotting every boss in most of our raid's first attempts.
An interesting aside, though: On the Heigan fight, we routinely had 50% or more of the raid die in the first dance. To that extent we took from down from 40% to a kill with 6 people. SIX!
Nov 24th 2008 8:28AM I tried the Culling of Stratholme on normal with some guildies, and wanted to tear my hair out.
It's not so much the bosses are difficult, but there are random undead non-elites that pop out of the ground every so often. They only have about 600 health, but they will put you in combat, preventing eating/drinking, rezzes, etc.
Plus, again... Why are we helping Arthas?
Nov 13th 2008 1:22AM Raleigh, NC having issues as well.
Good to see two bloggers there, though!
Nov 12th 2008 11:42AM I agree, lol. It blows my mind they're actually hosting anything Blizzard-related in the Triangle.
See you all there!
Nov 11th 2008 5:34PM Sixty dollar mouse? Pretty fancy... Can anyone vouch for the performance?
Nov 6th 2008 2:41PM Does anyone know if it was required to pre-order for the collector's edition, or does it just cost more at time of purchase?
Nov 6th 2008 2:30PM I think a polar bear would suit the landscape of Northrend quite nicely.
The goggles are a plus, too!
