I logged in to do some levelling on Mabango only to find Navi in ICC. Quickly I swapped to Mab and was invited into the 10man achievement run. I was pretty excited as apart from occasionally walking in the front door and leaving, I’ve never been in ICC, let alone killed the King himself.
I joined as they approached the airship fight. I was instructed to stay on ours and repel boarders.
Again it was mostly a case of follow, bash whatever came within reach, listen carefully to the brief so as not screw up people’s achievements (and my own of course). And the run went well.
The achieve with the green dragon didn’t work out.
I hadn’t realised Sin was a she, until they said the Queen was coming
I have to admit, I afk’d (RL issues) for the first run through this as we attempted to get 30 stacks (of something???) and came back to a dead body and a second attempt. I have a bad feeling that my afk killed them (though I did word them up I was leaving). So again, my record of dieing at least once (usually more) in every guild run is secure.
Moments later I was thrown from the platform and died and I was convinced that we were starting again. Vent and chat opened up with Don’t Release!! so I didn’t, but spent the next couple of minutes staring up to the platform wondering what would happen.
Eventually we were raised up and the KING WAS DEAD! The cutscene started and I watched most of it before the vent conversation brought me back. And you can view it in Dalaran if you wish.
Hmm, actually looking at the achieves I must have been ported in at Lady Deathwhisper, not the boat. I kinda thought that was trash. 8 or 9 Heroic DS geared toons (and me) makes short work of these dungeons.
WIth the kids actually in bed and asleep, and it being Friday night which is normally guild alt raid night I logged in wondering what might be happening. I didn’t find any alt raids (which is good, as I’ve banned myself from them) but a small group was running Black Temple. I was pretty sure Mabaho hadn’t done it, but I think Dasal had, so Mabaho joined in.
Turns out I had done it, but it was over fast and then they decided to push into Naxx. Now I definitely hadn’t done all of that, a check of achieves tells me I finished 10 man Construct qtr in May 2009, about 3 years ago! And I certainly never went there in Vanilla.
We had a group of 8 but with the rest of them geared for DS I knew my mediocre (by comparison) effort won’t be telling (as it is when we alt raid, hence the self induced ban).
So for me, a first time in 3/4 of Naxx and we were running 25man. Here is a few snapshots (though I reckon some of you might be well sick of the place)
It was also a busy night for achieves, racking up the following (all 25 man) –
