My Blood is Boiling!

Monday, July 21st, 2008 Posted in Bosses, Burning Crusade, Dungeons | 2 Comments »

Gurtogg Bloodboil. Dead on the floor. Good raid tonight, it ended with Bloodboil dead on the floor and a first foray into the Reliquary of the Lost's domain. A 5% wipe, followed by a 1% and we had him! Congratulations to all ...

Nobody Badduh dan us!

Sunday, May 25th, 2008 Posted in Burning Crusade, Dungeons | 2 Comments »

Another week, another Zul'Aman Sunday. And the improvement was phenomenal. Taking more or less the same group as last week, we downed Nalorakk and Akil'zon on short order and with loads of time left on the clock. Nowhere near enough ...

Tempest Keep was just a Setback

The Magisters' Terrace is just one part of huge amounts of new content that's arrived with the patch - a new 5-man dungeon, to complement the last 25-man raid, Sunwell. And it's been interesting, I'll give it that. I'll make ...

Gruul says: Die! (And we did)

Wednesday, September 5th, 2007 Posted in Bosses, Burning Crusade | No Comments »

So a return to Gruul's lair before the reset. And how did it go? Well, our attempts were much better than our first go - 18% - but still short of the mark. Gruul's an interesting character, but the thing that ...

Down here in Gruul’s Lair…

Congratulations to all members of Dead Code Elimination; last night in our first trip to Gruul's Lair, we downed Maulgar and got a good idea of how to proceed with Gruul. It was a learning experience, but above all, it was ...

You face not just Malchezzar, but the axes he commands!

Wednesday, June 20th, 2007 Posted in Bosses, Burning Crusade | No Comments »

So our progression continues. And we faced not just Malchezzar, but the legions he commands. And we lost repeatedly. It strikes me that a lot of him is down to luck on infernal placement, and lots of dps during the ...

We can be heroes…

The Slave Pens. How that instance caused us problems as we initially levelled up. The GIANT ENEMY CRAB - first real challenge of the expansion with his evil bleed effects back when we were in the low 60s - lived ...

Taking out the trash

Tuesday, May 8th, 2007 Posted in Burning Crusade, Dungeons | 3 Comments »

This curator is equipped for gallery protection... Yeah, right. Once you work out a strategy for the Curator he's really quite straightforward to take down. And then you enter the Great Library. Visually it's quite stunning. However it's the most badly-thought ...

A Night at the Opera

Monday, April 23rd, 2007 Posted in Bosses, Burning Crusade | 1 Comment »

Hurrah for overacting! A return to the Opera House gave us exactly the thing we didn't want - a repeat performance to the Tragedy of Romulo and Julianne. Many groans abound when Barnes the Annoying Stage Manager announced the event, ...

Romulo, Romulo, wherefore art thou Romulo?

Friday, April 20th, 2007 Posted in Bosses, Burning Crusade | No Comments »

As expected, the Maiden went down quickly on Tuesday night, leaving us to concentrate on the Opera House. Lots of fun but the Opera House has several drawbacks. First, there's the Skeletal Ushers who seem quite nasty. And then there's ...
