As the title says, I managed to do two more new heroics today, fearsome ones too – Halls of Lightning and Caverns of Time: Stratholme.
HoL – This instance is awesome with stellar dps. Loken is something else though . Half the time I couldn’t really time my getting out of holy novas very well so I had to binding heal a fair amount. The pulls with the exploding elementals also gave me a bit of a heart attack. I also managed to get a few off-spec gear pieces, which is always nice.
Strat – I went with the stellar dps group and it was fast-paced and actually quite fun. I don’t recall anyone really dying and we managed to get a drake to drop. Now that I actually know that a drake drops here, I want to run it many many times. >.> Of all the drake models in game, the Caverns of Time drakes are my favorite. I remember flying over to Black Morass once and remarking that I would love to have a mount just like the one I was flying. I guess Blizzard listened. A new goal is born. >.>
We also did a quick Violet Hold run (oh Icharon or whatever your name is, I hate you so much, you are a headache and a half) and gathered several achievements – 100 emblems of heroism (woo), and the Got Money on My Mind acheivement.
It was unfortunate that I had to go to work afterwards (curse you, grocery store job of fail) but being able to do ‘hard’ heroics without too much trouble makes me feel happy.
And a quick shout-out again to Kadomi who is celebrating her birthday. =D Heroic UP WILL drop your sword >.> And a mount.
