WoW BHA Monday Night Crew - Ruby Sanctum Tonight 12/6! Farewell to WotLK

Damn you guys and your early night raiding! I'd hop on, but as is par for my course, you'll be finishing up by that time I don't think I'm even guilded anymore... I reupped a little while ago to play with some real life friends on a different server with my shammy, but I still have 80s on Blackhand.
Too many other games to play recently, and less time than usual!
Can't wait for Cataclysm though, that should bring me back full time.

Aries - Although I've never been a Night Shift-er, one of my hopes for Cat is that all the re-ups will allow the Night Shift to ride again! I know there are some Goodjers who would love it.

(The Night Shift was a raid group that raided from 9pm-midnight on Thursdays during part of Wrath, for anyone who didn't know)

I think LtWarhound signed up to tank, right?

We're still quite a few people shy of a full run. Come and experience the last night of AoE tanking, and see Naxx one last time. We need a healer and some more DPS for the run to take off.
Edit: It is still early... Thanks for pointing that out Fed.

I can bring Muadihb and heal.

Hopefully we will get some people who want to come tonight. Since tomorrow everything is converted to JP, it is probably a good night for it. Easy Badges to be converted.

Just wasn't sure on your availability with the new baby.
Good, a few DPSers shouldn't be hard to find at all.

Yea, he's sleeping and laying around pretty well.

I was pulling screenshots from our recent Yogg+1 kill, and I found this one from our first run as a group at ICC 10. Unfortunately, Cheeto is not pictured. Fortunately, a dancing bear is.

I must say, though, when it comes to dancing with bears, my hunter is the king (queen?).

Awesome! I made a few screen shots last night when I was going around the zones checking out nooks and crannies before Cat. I wish I thought about taking them more often.

Naxx was pretty neat last night. Some of those fights are a MFer! Thanks to Cal, Schniggles and LtWH for joining us.

PS- Tuskarr's Vitality SO got nerfed. Psssh, more like movement speed decrease! Either that, or Grinds mixed up the wrong dusts and crystals while enchanting them. Someone needs to be the scapegoat for that poor performance, and lord knows it cannot possibly be MY fault. I never was very good at dancing.

I did do the enchant pretty late at night. It might have had some adult beverage mixed into it by accident.

Any ideas on what we could do next week, or should we shelve Mondays until after December 7th?

We could extend our Naxx L/O and wrap that up if we had enough people interested.

What do you guys think?

I think now that Chill of the Throne has been removed from ICC, you guys should go straight there. (Once my availability clears up, I'd gladly bring Reap in to OT for you if needed.)

Chill of the Throne has been removed from ICC

Really? Somehow that one got by me. So, basically nothing in ICC will ever hit anyone ever again?

Sweet, time to holy tank it.

Correct. Between that and the buff this will be very easy to tank.

Last night was fun, would have been better if I could have heard you all in vent up for anything next monday.

Yeah, I am up for whatever!

I did not know about Chill of the Throne.

Confirmed yesterday that the throne is no longer chilly. But the buff is still in place; Strength of the Douche-King I believe it is called.

I know this is TOTALLY and completely the wrong spot.... BUT... Has anyone found a working Healbot? I feel naked on my disc Priest...

You can replicate everything healbot did with mouseover macros you know.

Not the part where spells fire on clicking.

I had told my Curse client to prefer alphas for healbot and it pulled in something new. I haven't had a chance to test it yet though.

I've seen mouseover macros set up to use mouse buttons instead of the keyboard. The catch is that you lose the original functionality.

I'll recommend Vuhdo, its all my resto druid uses.

I'm thinking we should just jump into Uld on Monday. We'll get the weekly, and hopefully we'll get a group that wants to stay and kill stuff for the fun of killing stuff. Everyone hip to that jive?

Definitely.

I'll be glad to bring either of my characters, incidentally. If we need healers I'd definitely like to see the fights from the other side, but if there are enough other healers interested in going then I'll gladly bring the hunter and continue the process of relearning to play my main.

I think there's a new "guild events" system that was added in the patch. I think I'll play around with that this evening and see about adding a note about this on there.

I am up for ulduar I will be attending with bells on!

Yay Cheeto, we missed you tonight.
Ulduar would be fun.

Are we missing any raids? I'd love to try for RS (not likely a possibility) or maybe another Ony run or something next week, but it is tough to get any guildies to come along. On that note, thanks a ton to everyone who came along last night to make that run possible. I appreciate it a lot.

Maybe Mondays will just be a day for us to run the weekly from this point forward? I don't really know what else to do as a group. We seem to have "won WoW" at this point...

Auriaya was a major PITA! I took a screen cap of our bazilloin skeletons piled up there at the top of the stairs. If it turned out any good I'll post it this evening.

Have you done ToC? Other than the back half of Naxx and Ulduar, that's the only "old" content we haven't attempted here.

Yeah, as we've discussed previously, other than Algalon, Ruby Sanctum is the only fight I haven't completed on any difficulty on my hunter, so I might start lobbying to just get a kill of any sort in guild there, despite the lack of interesting loot.

Yeah. I would also suggest maybe going back and hitting some classic raids, but I think I'd rather wait for 4.0.3 for that so we can get the guild achievements.

Yeah, she's always been a gatekeeper fight of sorts, despite coming after the physical gatekeeper. To be honest, we probably didn't quite have the numbers we needed to pull off the zerg rush method that we were using (not to mention having only one healer with a clue what he was doing -- thanks for suffering with us Zee! ). Had we actually used the original strat it might have led to a cleaner kill, but man is that an annoying dance to learn.
