The Clouds are so Pretty

We got General Vezax down on Friday night which left us two full nights to work on Yogg-Saron. Sunday was a complete mess. People were drawn into the fluffy green clouds like moths to a flame. I think we only managed to get to phase 2 maybe 3 or 4 times with less than about 8 watchers up. Last night it went much better. We managed to get to phase 2 fairly regularly, and we made steady progress. We only got to phase 3 once, and we had to many people down to do more than wipe at that point, but I'm pretty optimistic that we should be able to down him this week. The super leet raiders are pobably posting on forums about how easy Yogg is, but man there is a ton going on in that fight. I can certainly say its going to feel good when we finally get his ugly ass down.

In other raiding news Thorim dropped Vulmir, the Northern Tempest. Man thats a sweet looking hammer. He also dropped, Pattern: Belt of Dragons, so I scored two upgrades. I did have to drop about 1000 gold getting Leatherworking from 445-450. I hadn't bother previously as nothing required 450 LW to make.

Eggcelent Smithers

As we were buffing before an attempt on General Vezax, I noticed that someone had gotten a proto drake whelp pet from a freshly hatched oracle egg, and I realized that my egg should have hatched. So I click on it and Boom! Reins of the Green Proto-Drake I love the proto drake models, and I hadn't been able to get one yet, so I'm pretty happy about this. Plus its green and purple. Orc colors!

Friday night we downed Thorim for the first time. Sunday we took out Mimiron. Mimiron is a fun fight. Takes a bit to get the hang of it, lots of ways to die if you arent careful. But You get to kill VOLTRON! (Well V-07-TR-0N to be accurate).

I got T8.25 Legs off of Thorim, so I've abandoned all my 7.25 pieces aside from the shoulders.

Tonight we try for General Vezax! We are finally back on top of horde progression, so it would be nice to stay there for a bit.
