012: Abundance

Aaaaaaaan we're back! Pulled through Attumen, Moroes and Maiden last night and it felt so good. They didn't give us much trouble either, even with 4 of us being in Kara for the first time. There was one memorable occasion though when the tank pulled Moroes and I stood at the front line to shackle my target when, for whatever reason, Moroes and his compadres decided my proximity aggro was a lot more threatening than the tanks pullspell. Have any of you experienced having all of them on you at once? If not, I can reveal that you go down very fast. Very fast indeed.

Several weeks ago I posted my wishlist from Karazhan, and amusingly, the first three items all dropped:
Handwraps of Flowing Thought
Shadow-Cloak of Dalaran
Bands of Nefarious Deeds

Me and the mini-mage duked it out for the gloves and rolled the same number. In the climatic reroll, he got 6 and I got 3, haha. But I won the cloak (which he already had) and both of us bowed out on the band in favor of the first-timer Warlock. If you exclude all my healing items, this is the first drop I've gotten from Karazhan. It's the first time ever that it's been so benevolent with offensive caster drops, though. Now all we lack is some healing plate, which we have yet to see at all. Poor healadins.

Didn't get a picture before I'd disenchanted the old one, so I'm not sure exactly how much of an upgrade it was. Suffice to say it definitely was.

Immediatly after Kara we did a guild run of Shadow Labs for rep. (15200/21000 currently) The Tree claimed he could keep us alive naked and with rank 2 spells, so it ended up being a mad DPS race were we all took aggro regularly. I topped the charts but the elemental shaman and the rogue were neck and neck the whole time. Made it a bit of a challenge for everyone and made SL not quite so boring even if it was run #285 this week, or so it feels like.

Since the Warlock was online but not in group, everything that dropped were things he desperatly wanted. Oblivion pieces, wands, etc. It all dropped. Universal law, I tell you: Every time your guild goes to a place you'd like drops from but you're not in the party, all those things you crave will drop.

'Grats on your Kara epic! As you all gear up, it really does get easier and easier. Since you've been reading and commenting over at "my place", I won't rub in my good fortune on drops of late since you already know. We're going to tackle Aran tonight. Wish us luck! :)

You are making the Kara run sound waaaay more prettier than it really was. I of course blame the others :P

Grats on the new cape, hopefully your hat will drop tomorow :)

@Annai - Thank you! Right about now I'm thinking it ought to be getting ridiculously easy for certain people who are getting drop after drop heh. Namely the rogue and the hunter. Unfortunatly though, with some guildies switching mains and one person quitting, a bunch of our previous drops are now not in use. It's sad, but what can you do? The most important thing is that people have fun playing. We'll clear it in due time and then we'll do it all over again anyway.

@Timo - Oh bb, you know wiping on trash doesn't count ;) We had fun though and it felt awesome to be back and that's what matters.

@Blue - Thank you! And congrats to you on the gloves! You know, as much as I've been in love with the staff from Curator, I might just pass on it for you if it drops. I think my orb & mace will be better in the end. Just a heads up :)
