Misaka and the group of raiders finally went somewhere tonight. We were planning the Naxx run for more than two weeks already, but weren’t able to get enough people online to actually do it. Now we did, so I’ve seen more action than just logging onto Misaka and her bank alt to do a few dailies, maybe run a random heroic if I feel like doing it, and then log out.
The result is below (and please forgive my crappy graphics settings).
The whole run was pretty good, apart from one wipe on Faerlina with adds not being close enough to the boss. Doing everything took us about 3 hours and we haven’t really had any problems anywhere. Of course, it’s only Naxxramas and just a bit harder than a heroic dungeon, so it wasn’t a question IF we can do it in blues, but rather how good can we be at it.
We weren’t also able to do Noth, because one player did the weekly raid this week for some reason. Ah well, we have an achievement for killing Kel’Thuzad and all the rest, so it’s not like it’s a big problem. We can always go and poke Noth or do the weekly raid some next time.
From my point of view, it was a decent run. I’m still not totally accustomed to heals with cast times, which was probably most visible on Loatheb, but on the bits where we went with only two healers, I was pretty close in healing done to our resto druid, Triev (pretty close being 45-55% for each one of us). I can blame it on lag though, since the latency on Arathor is a bit higher than what I’m used to on Deathwing – and also I’ve had some times when my screen froze for a few seconds. Before the raid, I was worried that I will have mana problems with the pretty low mana pools in blues, but only on KT I’ve ended the fight with about 5% left.
I could probably still improve things – one thing I’ve noticed is I should somehow make a Power Auras setting to remind me that I’ve ran out of totem range and have to reset them. I should also bind Tidal Force and Blood Fury to something, so I actually use them at all. Fortunately my gear is mostly done – I only need a new cloth chestpiece and gloves, but as it requires them to a) drop at all, b) not be sharded while I have to greed for them, this might take a while.
Next week we’re planning to do Sarthartion +1 or more, and maybe we could also do Malygos since Gevlon got the key item. We’ll see.
