Well turnout was lackluster last night so rather than spend the evening wiping on Blood Queen, we headed back to Ulduar to finish up Glory of the Ulduar Raider
I don't care how much gear you have. 1 Light in the Darkness is a difficult fight. So now I'm the proud owner of an Ironbound Protodrake. I'm not a big one for achievements, especially one 2 tiers old, but I did want an Ironbound. Coolest mount this side of Ashes of Al'ar.
Also patch 3.3.3 PTR notes are out. The only real Shaman change so far is this :
Shaman (Forums / Talent Calculator)
•Flame Shock: The damage-over-time component of this ability can now produce critical strikes and is affected by spell haste.
So if you are not already using Flame shock in your rotation, you really should add it now. The haste change reduce the chances of clipping, and even with out the dots ticking it was already a slight dps increase from all Earthshocks, now its even more so.
Changes to the flame shock glyph are incoming currently they are using this : Glyph of Flame Shock The current (for us) Glyph of Flame Shock does something like let Flame Shock crit at 230% damage. We'll try to get a new patch note up soon. Whatever it ends up as will probably be some relatively simple damage buff to replace the old crit buff. (Source)
I doubt it will be one that Enhancement will use, but still worth keeping an eye on.
< Fire and Blood > downed the big dead dragon last night. We went for one last pull after official raid end time and down she went. We'd had a couple of close wipes including a 1% a couple of pulls prior, so we knew we had her. Just a matter of minimizing mistakes. Its a fun fight but also a bit frustrating with the constant debuff management. I was really concerned going into the fight as a hybrid, that I'd get both the melee and magical debuff, but I dont think I ever got the magic debuff, even when backing off and casting to let the melee debuff fall off.
Anyways this week we work on Arthas. Hopefully we can clear everthing fast enough to get a good look at him.
