We didn't make our 10-man run last night - our guild 25-man, which usually runs on Thursday nights, was scheduled on top of us due to Thursday being Christmas Eve. Instead of fighting for attendance (and probably losing) we went along on the 25-man and I broke out the leafy goodness. We went into Ulduar to get Razorscale for the weekly raid quest (and I picked up the Three Car Garage and Shutout achievements along the way).
We moved on to Onyxia and one-shotted her. I was lucky enough to pick up a Stormrage Cover from her for my healy set, which is amazingly now approximately equivalent to my tanking set despite 95% of my badges going to my tanking stuff.
We downed the Northrend Beasts and Lord Jaraxxus before a couple of wipes on the Champions put me out of time for the night. I picked up a Ring of the Darkmender as well. Sometimes, I'm glad I'm not tanking! Our guild rules would have meant I probably didn't get a chance to roll on at least one of the items I won, and there were very few tankish drops I could have rolled on.
On the blog front, I'd like to link a post from the Big Bear Butt himself... Hilarious take on the mindset of a lot of tanks out there. Read it and laugh, and thank me later. I'm also in awe that he took the time to point out A Bear in the Trees. In case you were wondering, it was mostly reading BBB that inspired me to start this little endeavor of mine.
With tomorrow being Christmas Eve and family plans over the weekend, I'm not likely to get a post up again until sometime next week. I've only been going a couple of months, but so far it's been a fun ride and I hope anybody that's found their way here has found some use and/or enjoyment from my inane ramblings. I'm planning on exploring some thoughts on high-end rings, trinkets, and relics soon - I have a feeling my first 100-150 or so Frost Emblems will be spent on this kind of gear... I don't know yet though, I'll have to dig into the specifics of the Tier10 gear.
I hope everyone has a safe and fun Christmas holiday! If you're not inclined to celebrate Christmas, then I hope whatever holiday or holidays you celebrate around this time of year are also safe and fun!
Merry Christmas and see you on the flip side!
