So ever since I hit 85 with Jacemora in the Beta I essentially stopped playing in Beta.
My plan now, with the little time before the Cataclysm release I plan on testing out just how Uber my premade can be in full Raid T11 gear. I have cut the gems (such weird requirements on the meta), enchanted my gear, and choose a bear feral spec.
My plan is to solo some content… Most likely some Black Temple trash, just to see how viable solo grinding the last little bit of rep I need will be. Also probably Utgarde Pinnacle as I still don’t have the Blue Drake. It is possible to solo Utgarde already for the drake drop, but I want to see how much easier it is at 85 with awesome gear.
Ok… so off to BT… Fly to Blasted Lands… go through portal… fly to Outpost…. fly to BT…
“You must be in a raid…”
Fly to SW Harbor… boat to Northrend… fly to Valgarde… fly to UK… set to Heroic and enter UP.
Stealth to Skadi…
Run the gauntlet… kill guys… pick up harpoons… shoot down Skadi…. oh wait…
Bags are full… /damn it
Drop a Heaveweave manual…
kill guys… pick up harpoons… shoot down Skadi.
Kill Skadi, loot… no Blue Proto. /Sigh
Ok, so what did I learn?
- This is Easy. I went from 130K+ health to about 100K. Fought him standing still, never moved. Used no cooldowns.
- Bears hit freaking hard.
- Droprate will have me doing this quite a bit.
