I had a nice surprise last night, in that my guild’s A team all got online to do a timed HCoS run so I could finally get my drake. We had been clearing the timed event for a while, and everyone else in the group had gotten theirs, but for a number of reasons we just stopped doing that run. So I was kind of shocked when it was announced that we were headed there to get my drake.
And the run went well. We had 7 minutes remaining on the timer when we took on the optional boss. And now I present to you:
Then, it gets better, right after snapping the above screenshot, I noticed Garru (a healadin that I have run with before) was looking for more people for a 25-man OS run. My gang was done for the night and/or raid locked already, so I jumped in and headed to the Sanctum.
As the roster got filled in, it turned out that I knew about half of the group. We quickly one shoted the drakes, as well as Sarth with only a few deaths. I was healing the add tank, and never really broke a sweat. Ended up 3rd on the meter behind a shaman doing raid heals (stupid chain heal), and Garru, who was on the MT.
Now I should say up front that although I do like upgrades, I am not a major loot whore. I generally have no idea what gear the 25-man raids can drop that would be upgrades for me, since I don’t run them frequently enough to justify doing the research. I also believe that it takes a toll on you when you keep running things just to get an item, and it either doesn’t drop, or you lose the roll. But I digress.
Loot drops and all the casters are salivating over the Staff of Restraint. Rolls are made, and yours truly wins with a smooth 86. Come to Papa!
So it was a very good night for the Mob Boss.
