So last night, around 5pm, the 5 core members of my guild, yes I said 5, all gathered together for our first ever run as a group. We decided to head into……
Yes, you read that right. While every other guild out there is in Ulduar and Naxx, our small group has made its first official guild run of Kara. The group was myself, Daxan, playing healer, hubby was tank, and we had a 71 mage, 80 ret pally, and an 80 shadow priest.
We pretty much blew through everything. We struggled a little bit on the R&J fight, but we got through it much better then when we only had 3 people. This was the 2nd showing of R&J for us…lets hope next time we get something else.
The only bosses to give us issue were Illhoof, and Netherspite. Netherspite requires more than 5 ppl. So he will always be skipped. Illhoof caused issue because out shadow priest does not put out enough burst damage and we needed that to down the chains. We made it all the way to the Chess Event, which is TONS of fun BTW, before we called it a night. Our plan is to head back in tonight, and down Prince, and get the achievment.
All in all, it was great fun. The mage is a fresh 70, so he got a few gear upgrades, including a piece of his tier gear. This should make his leveling a bit easier. I managed to pick up the enchanting recipe from Shade as well. Everything else was De’d by myself and the other enchanter. Still hoping for the mount, but otherwise, its fun to get together as a group, and “see” content, even if that content is 10 levels below us.
Next on our “to do” list…Gruuls!
