Let’s Go Farmin’ Now…

April 17th, 2009 Posted in Uncategorized

For me, one of the gret mysteries of Ulduar was “How can the instance crash in such a way so much?” on Wednesday night. At least between the place being unplayable we were able to down the Flame Leviathan, which granted me a new toy. We were able to clear Ignis’s trash too, but just before the first pull, the instance crashed. By the time it came back up again, trash and all, the raid had been called.

Thursday was an altogether different story. This time we cleared the trash to Ignis, and actually got to engage him. After a couple of goes, and talking to other guilds, it emerged that the bugs reported (shattering not working, meleeing people in the slag pot) were still present.So we moved on to Razorscale. And in one sense, eveything fell apart.

That would be a good sense, though. The encounter wasn’t a faceroll. It was difficult, and we made some definite progress on it by the end of the evening. It was the sort of difficulty that might in the past have resulted in people screaming to go back to an easier instance to farm more gear. But as there isn’t any more gear – we’ve been farming Naxx for months, it’s all down to our own execution.


  • Total repair bill over 2 days: 250G
  • Money spent on flasks: 100G
  • Having an instance with isn’t nearly as easy as I was beginning to fear: Priceless

Looks like it’s time for me to actually do some dailies for a change…

    Only 250g?! Provided my consumables are provided by the guild (minus food) I spent 500g on our second night alone! It’s fun though, never had so much fun kissing the floor!

    For four hours’ raiding (we only got an hour on Wednesday thanks to server issues), I don’t think that’s too bad.

    Like Yakra, we only raid for three hours at a time, three to four times a week.

    My gold supply is hurting. Running Naxx brought in cash, since it was low-death high bosskill gold drops. Now, my cash intake from raids is minimal.

    I’m thinking dailies are the way to go. Especially if I’m going to be running some Uld-10 on offnights as I currently am (40% of the player of a 25man, 100% of the repairs o.O).
