Streakers downed Valiona and Theralion last night. (to be honest, I had to look them up to find out their names… I told you the details detracted from the magic right?) Yes, we are a little behind many, probably ahead of others, but then our members have been battling boss mobs of their own: flood, cyclones, earthquakes, 4,000 ping lag leeches, overgrown lawns (hey it nearly killed me!).
I have to say it’s a fun fight with half the battle knowing the differences between purple and blue dragons and which one is actually on the ground.
You want to get hit by some bombs (well at least fear them less), group for some, divide for others all the while watching who the current dragon is looking at and watching the sky for those lovely pink rivers of flame.
Fun, fun, fun, wipes and fun.
It’s cool that there are two dragons sharing the same health pool, no fussing about wondering who has to die first, just pew pee pew with an extra measure of pew.
Then when it’s all over, around the 1st corner, you run into two big buggers with their “raid flares of death”. Ohh the giggles when the first raid member went down with WTF was that. Quickly followed by a different party member speaking from his grave “Ohhh that’s what’s killing us”
No, not me, but I was laughing away.
Around the next corner and “Oh shit, this room is crawling with mobs”
Where we quickly discovered that once again, two is better than one.
Unfortunately Jono fails at math, so 2 became 3, became 4, became 5 and OOM calls from the healers.
Meh, maybe I shouldn’t stand in the fire.
Trash cleared and what can we see…
Not one, but two bosses!
If only the epics dropped in twos…
It was a seriously fun night. We got the dragons down on our last attempt, we weren’t quite winging the dastardly dragon duo (we were there Monday fighting the lag monster), but we were tweaking on the run.
With less than 30 minutes left on raid time there was no point in continuing, especially as one of our members left to smack his lag about.
But, never let the reality of zero potential progress stop a bunch like Streakers.
We pressed on, winging it all the way to the next boss as I described previously. With negative time on scheduled the raid clock, there was no real point in having a shot at the bosses, but then is there really a point in playing the game at all?
We winged it.
We learned a valuable life lesson.
Of course I could have told then that, I like burning things.
At least no one can complain about value for money.
How often do you get two for the price of one?
Anyway, that’s my token WoW post, I must write more, it kinda rolled off my fingertips.
Gnomer and Out!
