Farming Druid Set Boots

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

I read about this on the druid forums. Mother Smolderweb is an Elite Named Boss in Lower Blackrock Spires, who drops the druid set item "Wildheart Boots". Because she is a beast, it is possible for a druid to hibernate her. This means that she is actually soloable with a little skill at level 60 (I wouldn't recommend trying it before then, although people have posted they have done it as low as level 57, but the resist rate of the mob will be much higher).

The basic strategy is to sneak your way to her, and then stand in a corener and open with Starfire, then immediately hibernate her, run to the other side of a narrow space, and repeat. Of course, you will be resisted, and might mistime a spell, so you need to heal up a bit too. Although you can spam hibernate her for very little mana, and hibernate, at lvl 60, lasts about 45 sec, so you get plenty time to take a 'regen break' to allow some of your mana to tick back up.

Here are some pictures (taken from 2 fights, because in the first fight I only remembered to take a piccy just before she died and as she died).

Incursions into Black Wing Lair

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

Got my first run into Blackwing Lair Yesterday. All I can say is WOW! The instance visually is a lot like Blackrock Spires (being a wing of it I guess), but the fights are amazing, and as much harder than the Molten Core as MC is than everything before it. There are lots of clever ideas, and whoever figured out the secrets is smart :) We only managed to kill the first boss, and wiped about 8 times on the second boss.

The second boss fight only takes 3 minutes (you get a 'debuff' put on you at the beginning of the fight that basically gives you unlimited mana/rage/energy for 3 minutes), but in that 3 minutes you have to put out an insane amount of damage to kill him, and you have to have flawless tank rotation between your 4 MT's.

Lots of fun. Here are 2 piccy's I actually managed to remember to take.

Ding 60!

I picked up the nice little bundle below when I was working at Dragonmeet over the weekend: something to bring to the next face-to-face gathering of the Ravens?
