When good raiding goes well

When last week's 25m Ulduar rolled around, 34 people were signed up to go, and wouldn't you know it, 34 people were online in time for invites. Having just joined the guild less than a month ago, I fully expected to be passed over for a spot. To my surprise, I was invited to fill the 3rd to last DPS spot. Shortly after I joined, the GM whispered me and said they were trying to include everyone in the 25m runs so everyone could experience content and whatnot. I graciously thanked her for the invite and proceeded to prove that I could swing my mace with the best of 'em. And wouldn't you know, I finished 5th in overall damage when we called the raid after Auriaya (raid started at 10pm, called it at 1:30 because it was a Sunday).

When this week's 25m Ulduar invites went out last night, I was suprised to be invited back so soon (although my invite filled the final spot in the raid, but it's the thought that counts). Again after downing Auriaya and calling the raid a whole hour earlier than last week (progress FTW), WWS reported that I was tied for top DPS with the only rogue in the raid and 2nd in overall damage.

... Ok, to be fair, the four people above me on the previous week were on alts or didn't come to the raid. Still, don't burst my Divine Shield.

Picked up some Decimator's Armguards from Kolo's treasure chest; don't get me wrong, these were an upgrade, but I am now over the hit cap and have some unused ArP. There weren't any DPS warriors this time around, so I rolled on these relatively guilt-free.

Anywho, looking forward to continuing the 25man on Sunday and the 10man on Monday.

I'm a little burnt out from the gear post, and from my lack of a good night's sleep last night. My next post will be filled with epicness and hilarity, don't worry, so stay tuned.


  1. The starter gear post was great. I think you should create a link for it as a stand-alone guide for for new pallies.

    gl on sunday!

  2. Thanks Jong, as soon as I figure out how to do that I'll let you know! haha
