Ravens 2, Nerubians 0

The falled Anub'Arak in Azjol-NerubLast night saw the first venture into Azjol-Nerub in Dragonblight ... and despite a couple of nasty encounters (particularly as we went into the dungeon cold) we made good time and finished up in under an hour - in fact, due to a slight accident with forgetting to aquire a quest drop we ran it a second time (learning more about the encounters as we went) and in the end both runs came to little more than 90 minutes (and I reckon it'd be 30 or less each time once people are up to speed). Without getting too spoilery, its a spooky place and (as one might expect when dealing with undead spiders) its not somewhere for arachnaphobics. The gear drops were solid and rapidly approaching the kind of kit aquired from the top of Kara/ZA/Badges, so I imagine the next few instances will see larger-scale swapping of gear.

Utgarde Keep falls again

Another group of Ravens ventured into Utgarde Keep last night on a spoiler-free, Blayse led mission.

A few wipes as we threw ourselves against bosses with no idea what to expect, and quite a few drops which were greeded as nobody could use them (and we had no enchanter). But it was pretty good run nonetheless - I do remember Popps being excited with one drop, and I think everyone had lots of fun! The detail in the graphics is amazing btw, and although the keep is fairly straightforward, there were enough twists to have some 'ooh hang on' moments :)

It was only the 2nd time I'd ever lead a group, so thanks for being patient guys, I thoroughly enjoyed it :) Oh and thanks for letting me try some 'inventive' tactics with cc :)

Following the battle in Stormwind Harbour, Andromache and Leafshine pledge themselves to King Varian Wyrnn and the expedition to Northrend.

Onyxia? Deadyxia more like.

So, yesterday evening we gave Onyxia just a minor shoeing ... in 3 1/2 minutes. It took longer to loot her than it did to kill her.


We did the head hand-in in Stormwind afterwards, but as there was already a head up there were no celebrations. Boo!



Ravens versus Onyxia
