I spent some time yesterday running instances with Elentari.  She’d recently hit 85 and was all shiny and ready to hit heroics.  I ran her through Ahune the Frost Lord (hello haste cloak!) and then thought “I have time to run my daily heroic” and queued up.  I notice that healers have the call to arms buff (or whatever it’s called) and figured that I shouldn’t have to wait too terribly long for my queue to pop up and get started.

Sure enough, within a couple of minute my queue flashes up on my screen and I find myself looking at the Grim Batol loading bar.  Now, this instance can be a nightmare if the group is careless/doesn’t know what they are doing, but I’m down with it.  I mean, I’m a fresh 85, but it’s not as if I don’t have experience healing this zone as a new druid.  We start the instance and the third pull the tank falls off the edge.  I have no idea how this happened, but there you have it.  Of course, PuGs are now too good to use CC *ahem*, so all of the mobs are running rampant and we naturally wipe.

Hello.  My name is Beru, and I have done something of which I am not proud.  (Hi, Beru).

I think that there must have been some wierd alignment of the planets last night or something, because I wasn’t the only one behaving a bit oddly.  Seriously.  Ok, to my tale…

I run an Alt/Friends & Family 25 man ToC every week on Tuesday.  It’s all members of our guild (we had a few from a small 10 man guild that we were quite friendly with, but their guild has dissolved a bit and a good number of their members have joined our F/F ranks), and we set pretty strict loot rules before our very first raid a month or so ago.  There isn’t really any drama, and it’s mostly everyone having a lot of fun for a couple of hours on an off night.  The runs tend to go fairly smoothly, with a stumble here and there on Faction Champs and Anub, but we usually finish early enough that we have time to trek over to Ony and knock her out too.

I have been taking my paladin to these runs since their inception.  The biggest upgrade for her at this point is a healing weapon, as I have been unable to upgrade the Naxx 10 mace I had been using since…well, Naxx 10.  This has not been for a lack of trying though.  I lost the roll on the 10 man ToC mace to a guy who plays once or twice a week (but, hey, it’s ok, I told myself, I will have more opportunity to see the item than him since I have the opportunity to do this 10 man every week, and he may not…of course we are assuming that the damn thing will ever drop again).  And I’ve run the 5 man ToC heroic until my eyes have bled to no avail (I have earned over 100 champion seals on Dannie solely from this running instance).  So this weapon issue is a bit of a sore spot for me.
