Zul'Aman Clear!

Add the 10 man raid Zul'Aman to my full clear list. Was a lot of fun even though we lost the roll on the Tiny Voodoo Mask and Blood of Zul'jin. I did get Bladeangel's Money Belt which was kinda nice even though I blew 60 badges over a month ago for Waistguard of the Great Beast.

In typical Wow fashion for me Berserker's Call didn't even fall so I will continue using my antiquated trinkets until I can get Tsunami Talisman or Shard of Contempt the later of which I have also not seen in my last half dozen or so runs of Heroic Magisters Terrace.

At this point it is all about the trinkets since I am sitting on 2T4, all the possible badge upgrades, and S3 gear to fill out the rest. Until T6 and Black Temple me DPS will not change much short of taking up the powershifting hobby or improving my trinkets.

I was able to get Breastplate of Malorne from a Mag's run which completed my T4 set... WOOT... my first full set playing Wow. This was important for 2 reasons, flexibility in which 2T4 to wear for the bonus for DPS going forward and I am now getting the 4T4 bonus for tanking while wearing my first piece of T5 Nordrassil Feral-Kilt. This makes Tanking Tidewalker and the FLK add a little easier.

Last but not least, we downed Rage Winterchill on our first try... but he is so easy.

A'Lar down

Well, it's Tuesday... no WOW for at least 5-6 hours I suppose.

Last night AC downed A'lar for the first time I am sure of many more to come... well, that's about it.

I finally got my first piece of T5 gear in the form of pants. We lose armor and stamina putting them on but gain Hit and avoidance and did just fine with them tanking Tidewalker last week. I also used the new tanking neck from SSO which added some expertise... not much but enough I think to avoid a little more burst damage from parries. Looking at our WWS numbers from the prior week the Hit and extra avoidance from changing to the T5 pants and new neck equaled about another 3% to avoidance and shrank TW's avoidance of our attacks noticeably.

Tidewalker Dead

Went into SSC last night and 1 shot him.

Had my Commendation of Kael'thas equipped and it went off 4 times.

My hat off to my healers they did a great job keeping me alive. I did use my Healthstone macro once which went off without a hitch.

/use Master Healthstone
/Cast Dire Bear Form

Also used a Flask of Chromatic Wonder and a Magic Resistance potion.

Although I couldn't see it, I hear our only Prot Pally did a flawless job with the murloc's along with the warlocks doing their thing. Last time we got Tide to 1% and it was due to losing our Pally so his healers did a bang up job too I assume.

I got no loot from Tidewalker and probably never will since I will be saving for the Thalassian Wildercloak from Kael'thas Sunstrider.
