While the above video isn't my guild, it brings back memories of my first guild's attempts on Vaelastraz back in the day -- and of what my priest's UI looked like while I tried to keep 40 people alive. We did prepare for the fight, though, carefully instructing our raiders on strategy, where to stand, how to watch aggro -- and most importantly, we told them very clearly to find a safe place to die when they got the Burning Adrenaline debuff. One failed attempt we were perplexed by the absence of a shaman's body, only to find he wasn't even in the instance anymore -- he'd hearthed out while the buff was active. Perplexed and annoyed, the officers asked him to explain himself.
"You told me to go somewhere safe," he said. "Kargath is much safer than in there with that dragon."
We couldn't really argue with that assessment.
Today, we've got a handful of posts from around the blogosphere that explain a great deal about various and sundry things in WoW.
- World of Matticus has a guest post explaining the ins and outs of the EPGP loot system.
- Life in Group 5 explains all there is to know about resto shaman mastery.
- I Like Pancakes explains some of the ins and outs and strategies of the gem market and jewelcrafting.
- Troll Racials are Overpowered attempts to explain the relationship between the entry barrier to raiding and population, complete with a nifty chart.
