So Festergut is interesting

We've only taken a couple of shots at him so I don't really know what we're doing but we have had a couple of decent tries so it shouldn't take us too long. I am done chasing upgrades currently. I have gotten both the tanking crafted pieces done from the primordial saronite. I am broke and none of my toons have any Frost emblems anymore but it was worth it. I am not very squishy at all and I like it. I have been very lucky with drops out of ICC10 and have gotten everything I've wanted. I might try to get in a 25 pug just to see how it goes, I'm not a big fan of 25's or pugs for that matter lol but sometimes seeing things from a different perspective can give you some good insights.

Or Not, maybe next week

Well we were going to try new stuff but we didn't have enough people. We need some more gear off the first wing anyways so we'll streamline our process there and see what we can do going forward.

Tomorrow we take on new stuff

We took down Saurfang again on Tuesday with a little more difficulty then last time but I think it was mostly our cocky attitudes and bad luck with our tree getting marked two tries in a row. We will be moving into the innards of the spire so to speak and taking on some new stuff so I hope we have fun with it and get some good tries in on some new bosses. It sure would be cool to get Festergut down. We'll see how it goes.

Sometimes a picture is all you need

This is what happens when you mix a holiday event with too much time on your hands

We finally killed the Roadblock

YES!! Saurfang is dead at our feet. Sometimes after weeks of trying it just clicks and we one-shotted the bastard. Good job to everyone and I'm sure we'll move on and make even more progress.
K Out!!

Updated rollcall: My toons or Critting you with a Walloftext

JuI thought I would start off with my Nath toons. My 80's Chowyunfat, Iamthetick, Newguy, Psychostick, Septictank. I barely log in on any of them anymore. Maybe once a month or so mostly out of nostalgia. I also have a 78 warrior Warriorbarbi, and a 71 mage Happymadison. I do plan to get them to 80 (or 85 depending on how long it takes, lol) just to know what every class besides rogue plays like at endgame (My highest rogue was 18 I just don't enjoy the playstyle). I think it helps to know what the other classes are capable of and gives me a better idea what they can bring to an encounter. I also really like leveling, it is one of my favorite parts of the game exploring and questing and sometimes just mindlessly killing for xp. When my employment situation gets more settled I intend to transfer Newguy, Psychostick, Warriorbabri, and Happymadison over to Alleria. I really don't want to level another priest and I miss having a higher level mage, and warlock, I also wouldn't mind having a tailor and an engineer since leveling those is kind of a pain.

Okay, so on to the real toons.
Mistrk: My tank, my original toon, the one who gets the majority of my attention. He is ready to kill Deathbringer Saurfang, my gear is right where I want it. the number of upgrades I am really looking for is very small, just the necklace off of Marrowgar, the bracers from the
aforementioned roadblock and just getting the 95 frost emblems for my next piece of t10 and farming primordial saronite on my other toons to craft the boots(1 down 4 to go). I have worked really hard to get to where I am with him now and I can't honestly think of an encounter I couldn't tank if given the chance.

Youbetcha: Formerly Surething on Nath my shammy is getting decently geared pushing some solid 3k+ dps for an alt, and is also a lot of fun, Lava burst crits can put a smile on your face when they go for 12k, he is my primary primordial saronite farmer right now since he is my only other 80 on Alleria but hopefully that won't be for too much longer.

Iamthetick: Version 2.0(I know fail on originality but I just like then name and I was sure I wasn't going to transfer the other one so) He is now level 70, I have started working him through Northrend but its going slower than I would like because I am really tired of leveling through Northrend. randoms help but at the low 70's you are stuck doing UK over and over again, ughh.

Lilangrydude: My DK is 71 and I am slowly leveling him as my second tank(third if you count warriorbabri, but she's on hiatus right now, lol). He is also my JC so I do get that daily done every day, he already has three epic patterns so that is going well. I am enjoying tanking with him right now because its pretty easy and most people appreciate seeing a good DK tank because they are the primary bad tank out there. Not that they are all bad it just seems more bad tank situations turn out to be DK's who just want a faster queue time but don't really know what they are doing.

Rootandnuke: My druid is moving fast (heirloom gear is crazy at the lower levels, 5 levels in a day is easy without really trying. Honestly I just like druids, they offer so many different options they just are fun. I only really enjoy being a boomkin though so hopefully I can get to that level quickly and get to the point where I am not oom all the time.

Septicktank: The only other toons I play at all are on Bloodscalp. I don't put a ton of time in over there but occasionally my friend Tom and I will level our High level horde toons together. we are both 74 and really looking forward to finishing the Wrathgate questline from the Horde perspective. My DK over here is purely damage as my friend has a warrior tank. makes for clearing content ultra quick with both of us.

Ibeatarse: My 44 horde hunter is an anomaly I wanted to level a horde toon and I am a big fan of hunters so he is a lot of fun. One thing about playing him though is I don't know where anything is on the hordeside so its way slower leveling. I go in spurts with him, but eventually he'll get leveled up because I am crazy.

Well thats the 14 toons I have put any real effort into. I have 40 created toons between 10 servers most of the others range from 1 to 10 as bank alts or toons to check out other servers. A couple are for when my other servers are down but that is a lot more rare than it used to be. Thinking about it the realms are way more stable then they used to be a couple years ago, looking at it I have a 14 on a server that used to up when Nath was down. I totally forgot about him. Its interesting to really look at all the toons you have out there when you have crazy altitis like I do.

Well that was extensive and a good look back. We are taking a shot at the roadblock tonight. I watched a couple videos to see some strategy's and so hopefully there will be a post tomorrow of our awesome victory (Yes and SS or it didn't happen lol).
K Out!!
