Be Imba.. or be frustrated…

Ok.. so I looked at Be.Imba a few days ago. I found it to be interesting but I had other things I needed to do so I didn’t spend too much time thinking about it. I mentioned it to guildies and they also seemed to find it interesting.. but still.. nothing major. Fiancee couldn’t get his toon to load for love or money. I think he gave up trying after about 2 hours.

Bugged Bear.. Birds at 9

Dance Daegothh DanceLast night West Kingdom did a guild-only run at Zul’Aman. We were Gongniu (Warrior Tank), Shaed (Warrior Tank), Tatia (Holy Paladin), Validor (Holy Paladin), Weaver (Holy Priest), Spiralla (Shaman), Daegothh(Mage), Sibiy (BM Hunter), Fynriss (BM Hunter) and Krullwyn (BM Hunter).

First we tried the bear boss. Everything was going very very well until at about 20% boss health Shaed got twitchy and accidentally taunted the boss at the wrong time. Tank dies, Tank 2 dies, raid runs down the steps to reset the boss.

Try two we swapped out Shaed for Amellea (our regularly scheduled off-tank). We ran into a lot of problems where the tank would take a big hit, then the boss would do the roar which silences everyone for two seconds and then smash the tank dead. I think we got three tries in before we had respawn and then the boss showed up -below- us in his initial starting place. At that point we couldn’t aggro the mobs. Believe me, we tried… See the picture of Daegoth dancing between the bear bosses legs.. and he’s not even invisible ;) *sigh* bugged bear boss.

(Sorta) Guild First: Bear lord Nalorakk

NalorakkMy guild “West Kingdom” in cooperation with the guild “Shadow Warlords” fielded a 10 man group to go try Zul’Aman. We were easily able to take out the bear lord but found the bird boss to be too much to handle.

I’m hesitant to call this a guild first only because it wasn’t a guild-only first. West Kingdom -can- field a 10 man group to ZA.. we just haven’t. So this is a (sorta) guild first. Shadow Warlords is also our partner into Gruul’s Lair and (hopefully eventually) other 25-man raids.

I have screenshots but I forgot to upload them before leaving for work. I’ll get this post updated tonight with pics. Seriously, what do you need the screenshot for? It’ll look like every other dead bear boss pic on the net.. only for this one Tatia the Dranei will be standing in front of the corpse. Pfft

Woot! West Kingdom has cleared Kara! That is all!

[Edited the next day to add...]
Um.. ok.. so that’s not all :) Sorry to be so terse last night. The first post was written while we were still in Kara (we went on to kill Illhoof and Netherspite meaning that we’ve completely cleared Kara this week).

High King Maulgar (boring) movie and brief analysis


WWS http://wowwebstats.com/2w26zn3dvcz3u

From Wowwiki: High King Maulgar is the lord of the ogres of the Blade’s Edge Mountains of Outland, ruling from within Gruul’s Lair. His council consists of Kiggler the Crazed, Blindeye the Seer, Olm the Summoner and Krosh Firehand.

I wonder if HKM got the message that Tatia is now queen of the ogres?

Guild First: High King Maulgar

Wow.. things happen quickly around here. Earlier today someone in West Kingdom got a whisper from Joe, someone else on Khaz Modan. Joe was asking to speak to a West Kingdom guild officer. (cue ominous music) Dun dun dun. We all started wondering who was in trouble. Fiancee, the guild master, ended up logging into Joe’s ventrilo server and they had a nice long talk.

Nibuca First: Music Video, Curator

West Kingdom started very late in the evening and made a tiny bit of progress (up until the part where we ran into Shade and he kicked our butts)(combination of lots of alt toons that were undergeared and it being too late at night).

Anyway I showed a couple of my earlier movies to a friend of [...]

I’ll Make You Famous!!! (AKA: OMG! I have a fan!)

First I posted my Lurter video. Gently ribbing my brother (and the guild) about lurting.. with a piece of candid video from an actual lurt. The extra commentary from the guild was priceless and I -had- just figured out how to make videos.. and it made me laugh.

Then WowInsider linked to it. (WTG guys.. [...]
