So we are continuing ahead, beating more heroic bosses after clearing all normal current raid content and I need to start thinking about items I still want… here is my short term list based on what we have on farm.
Gao-Rei, Staff of the Legendary Protector – I can’t believe after like 6 kills this has yet to drop and my bonus rolls give nothing but gold…. Grrrrrrrrr – Tsulong
Eternal Blossom Headpiece – I am currently using normal Tier gloves and LFR chest. I have a 496 chest in my bags and would love to go helm and hands and maintain my Heroic pants for now. – Sha of Fear
Choker of the Unleashed Storm – Dude is on farm on Heroic so just a matter of time… I have the normal currently. – Blade Lord
Eternal Blossom Raiment – To replace LFR version. – Empress
Bracers of Unseen Strikes – Blade Lord
Tomb Raider’s Girdle – Feng, another one we have on farm on heroic.
Feng’s Seal of Binding – Same as above.
So we have completed the first raid in MOP (on normal) and I need to start looking at my new gear needs as we down bosses.
I was able to get almost every slot with an item of ilvl 463 or higher right about the time we started raiding but since then have gotten some lucky drops, rolls, and some gear from increased rep.
Here is what I am looking at now to grab…
Choker of the Klaxxi’va – Need the currency (Already honored with the Klaxxi) OR Amulet of the Hidden Kings – The Spirit Kings
Netherrealm Shoulderpads – Gara’jal the Spiritbinder
Arrow Breaking Windcloak – The Spirit Kings OR Blackguard Cape – Need the currency
Bracers of Violent Meditation – Vaults zone drop
Chestguard of Total Annihilation – Elegon
Stoneflesh Leggings – The Stone Guard
Feng’s Seal of Binding – Feng the Accursed
Bottle of Infinite Stars – Elegon
Relic of Xuen – Need extreme luck or lots of Gold
Mists is fun and going well. Working on gearing up for raiding still. Looking to still get…
Aerial Bombardment Cloak (Heroic Siege)
Korloff’s Raiment (Heroic Scarlet Halls)
Still finding a renewed excitement raiding as I have now been fortunate enough to complete BWD on Heroic, Almost all of BOT on Heroic (Still need Heroic Valiona & Theralion which is a simple formality) and I am currently working on Heroic Sinestra (Most likely another formality as the guild has already done and knows the fight) and Heroic Ragnaros.
Hopefully we find some time for Heroic Throne of the Four Winds, which sounds possible as the RL and Co GM makes it sound like the last thing we want to do is spend too much time on Heroic Rags.
I have been fortunate with gear and all I have left outside of Heroic Rag drops…
- Widow’s Kiss
- Obsidian Arborweave Grips
- Choker of the Vanquished Lord
- Flickering Wristbands
- Upgrading Idol and Belt to Heroic.
Basically right now I am running a 4T12 set with non Heroic gloves and using Heroic Helm offset item. Because of running 4T12 I am reforging into Hit/Expertise to the cap and Haste above all else. Technically this is the way to go running 4T12, if you are not in 4T12 it’s best to maximize Mastery in reforge wherever possible and ignore Hit/Expertise caps just like the old days.
So I faction transferred on Friday to Horde and Raided on Sunday…. We worked on Heroic Baleroc and Heroic Beth’tilac for a little bit before closing out the week with some normal 25’s which was a TON of fun for me having been raiding only 10’s since downing the Lick King on Heroic late in Wrath.
We also got in a Heroic Majordomo Staghelm kill which has ended up on Video…YouTube responded to TubePress with an HTTP 410 - No longer available
It has the ability to watch full screen in 1080p no less where you can see my name in the raid frame and my flaming kitty butt jumping around.
We also downed Ragnaros in Regular 25’s
Supposedly the nerfs have really made it all a lot easier though but since I have not raided with these folks or in 25’s it was hard for me to really know since they are all very good to begin with. We one shot Heroic Domo and Normal Rags and the Raid leader sounded pretty happy with that considering a bunch of new raiders in the raid.
I didn’t die to anything stupid and managed not to wipe the raid so hopefully I get to see some more action this evening, will update as my new adventure as a Horde player unfolds.
On that note, just an FYI…. If you transfer to Horde you have to go and get your portals to Vash and Twilight Highlands again…. was kinda a pain in the arse.
