Well now that three mages are raid worthy – and one even has two of the ‘time’ tier pieces from raid finder /dance
The other two mages are clearly letting the side down – but it’s ok I can manage. Got one epic so far ! woo… if i keep at it I might earn some nice rep – who knows.
Finally we’re onto Cataclysm instances.
I heard about another boxer completing all instances with five mages, I think I came across the video to find that they were done with level 85! mages. Which having done Blackrock Caverns and moved on to Stonecore I can see the issue, boss health points!
Anyway, here’s the Blackrock Caverns video, the hardest part was getting the 3rd boss to go through the lava – and it’s not THAT tricky really – it’s just I failed the first time, thankfully I was able to reset. What is nice, is all the loot! great for 79 twinks, so it sells well in the auction house.
A very easy instance, I had a slight concern about being in the laser room for 5 minutes without a healer – but I just made sure I spammed mana shield up so that the lasers didn’t pick away at me.
The only other problem I had was carelessness, which seems to be rife when I’m actually making the video.
Mudgem and her crew are now on youtube with their first superspeed video! This is my first game video capture, let me know if you have requests/tips for future recordings!
As of posting switch to 1080p for the Audio track
As explained on the youtube description, it was a very sloppy clear of the instance – I was rushing because I was recording.
Running this at level 74 is not easy going when everything is orange, but I’m impatient and I ‘had’ to do it. Not only do I have reduced DPS from missed spells, but polymorph does not last very long and sometimes I need to polymorph after every kill of about 4 trash mobs.
Slad’ran and Moorabi were simple, and I was confident enough with the last boss to run without the UI. The Drakkari Colossus elemental boss caused me some trouble, I just had to make sure I ran a good distance away when it was swapping form.
The worst part of this instance were the charging rhinos. 75% life off a mage straight away, and I had to hope it wasn’t re-targeted. I had a few corpse runs.
