Guild Perks? Sounds cool to me. Also, the Best Weekend in WoW ever, in my biased opinion.

Normally, I don’t pay much attention to news pages/announcements/etc. during the weekend, but a friend asked me if I had looked at the upcoming Guild Perks, so I had to check into them. Now this is all in beta still and a lot of this can change, but based off what’s available, the guild perk feature is going to be really sweet. I dare say it walks the line of “too good to be true”, so I’m being wary of being OMG SO EXCITED or anything of that nature.

Now, for material that would qualify as OMG SO EXCITING, this weekend in WoW would be it. Friday I finally finished the achievement “To The Rescue!” by getting 4 base defenses in one game…way to close that out in style. The biggest highlight were yesterday, though. Saturday night into Sunday morning, we worked on Lich King 10 hard mode, and around 2 AM Sunday, everything fell in place and we were once again wtfBBQed by Fury of Frostmourne at 10%…oh wait, that means we won! The only downside (if you want to call it that) was losing out on Tel’thas to our priest, but in all seriousness, I didn’t (and still) don’t give a damn; this was a win where the loot was only secondary. It’s all about the title, heh. Besides, the previous week I had upgraded from the heroic Midnight Sun that I had mentioned in a previous entry to Bleak Coldarra Carver, so I wasn’t exactly hurting. Yes, Tel’thas is a pretty significant upgrade over BCC, but loot was my last concern with winning this encounter. With 3 weekends worth of work on the fight, we just wanted to get it down and collect our sweet title.

So how could I top that? Well, that’s a hard act to follow, but later that day (after some healthy sleeping in) my mount farming partner and I did our rounds and I came out of ZG as owner of a Swift Zulian Tiger. I’ve been running in there for a good 3-4 months for just about every reset, starting out just soloing the raptor boss (came close once or twice on the tiger boss but silence + interrupts = heals going off), but my farming partner and I expanded our Anzu farming scheme over into other dungeons; so far he has Anzu for his main, while I have the Swift White Hawkstrider and now the Zulian Tiger.

But wait, there’s more! A couple of hours after picking up my shiny new mount, our guild ventured into ICC 25, which I was quite nervous about because for the time between raid start and when I won the mount, my connection speed went right into the doldrums and was shoddy right up to our first pull of Putricide. Connection stablized in time for LK (which feels like a total breeze after doing the 10 man hard mode, heh) and I was awarded theRoyal Scepter of Terenas II. Sure, Tel’thas is better stats-wise in terms of DPS, but the scepter wins out in that it’s faaaaaaar easier to obtain and it looks way cooler. 😛

With that, my Best Weekend in WoW was over, but damn, it’s hard to ask for more. Next weekend I will most likely end up the owner of another nice shiny mount, the Bloodbathed Frostbrood Vanquisher.

Oh, yeah…totally forgot to mention that I’m halfway home in terms of level 80s; my warlock dinged 80 yesterday afternoon amidst all the goings-on with my shaman and I’ve already replaced all of his heirlooms AND have 2 piece T9 on him. As much as I despise running heroics on other toons, it’s actually fun to run them with the lock, since he isn’t uber leet dps yet. I run some with a freshly dinged druid tank, and it’s scary to watch his health see-saw back and forth, but it’s a nice reminder of how far we have come in WoTLK, where once upon a time heroics were a reasonable challenge to their faceroll status now.

    Hey Man, do you remember me? We raided the T7 content together at Lowered Expectations. Have been a long time! Didn’t know about your blog until I found the link on a website and recognized the name… hehehe. Nice post! Congratulations for your Loot and Achievements.
