Been a while since posting here, I know. R2B takes time so that’s what I’ve been up to lately. HOWEVER, Friday July 25th was a good night for me. BBB posted a while ago about an impending guild drama involving raids and cramming 11+ people into 10 slots. Up go a few sticky threads in the guild forums and we’re good to go. I expressed general interest in going on Kara runs but didn’t sign up for this first round; couldn’t make raid start time and there seemed to be a deep enough bench to handle any RL things that may have delayed or scrubbed the raid.
Fast forward to Friday the 25th. At about 7:30 local time (9:30 PM server time) which was just over 2 hours into the raid, I log on to see how things are going. As my toon zones into Shattrath, my chat window, as Phinn would say, esploded. The upshot seemed to be that they were short a DPS (maybe 2, I was a bit confuzzled) and so I was asked to join in so I did.
Recall that my last time in Kara was my first time in Kara. BBB explained everything as we went and it ran smoother than the finest Irish whiskey. (Well, I think so anyway). I remember Curator, Chess, Illhoof, Aran and Prince. So this alone — A Kara run — is sufficient to be called Christmas in July. BUT…. I got a thing or five while there:
Zierhut’s Lost Treads: These appeared in my bags after going AFK to put two of my kids to bed. I suspect they were bored and killed some things and decided that I could use them.
Terestian’s Stranglestaff: This was the best item of the night for me. I figured long ago that I would not obtain this any time soon and so didn’t think about what drops off this boss until after he was dead.
ZOMG! I haz purplez now! And what made it really great was that I had nine friends with me to share the excitement. Here they are…
