keepers (horde guild) is now 3/4 done with ToT with our first (VERY messy) kill of dark animus, and a few pulls on Iron Qon, we are getting to P2 and almost P3 so hopefully we keep that up and get to work on twin consorts next week

congratz and welcome to the group of people that post in frustrations about goddam runestones not dropping :)

To be honest, having a guaranteed runestone off lei shen made it much more bearable.
Before that hotfix, you would often have a week with 0 runestones.

Overally took me 8 weeks to complete the runestone step (which is, quite silly in my opinion).

12/12 runestones on the Lock. Three in this week alone and I know I had a few previous weeks with more than one, so I could see something like eight weeks for me as well (don't remember offhand when I got the meta, though it might be posted earlier in this thread).

Funny that they are happy with it taking that long, given that I'd swear I've seen blue commentary about the 6000 valor step being a bit much from the get go. I suppose capping valor every week for 6 weeks isn't quite the same as just running a couple LFRs.

Is the celestial's challenges step really as difficult as the posters on Wowhead are making it out to be? The forge step sure wasn't.

Depends on your gear and overall skill.

I completed the healing one almost by accident at first go without knowing what I had to do.

The ranged DPS one is fairly difficult - that took quite a few tries for me on my hunter. The healing one is very very easy. I just finished the tanking one for my warrior - it's harder than the healing one but not as bad as the ranged DPS one.

(Was a little strange, I failed on the tanking one about 4 times, said "screw it" and went to bed. Next day, I got it on the first shot. Odd.)

The caster one was a joke. I read all of this stuff about cheesing the bloods using the balcony and all this dumb shit.. he was dead about 10 seconds after they spawned.

RNG based quests are fucking stupid. The drop rate is so pathetic I don't even see why they didn't let you double up on them between difficulties in the first place.

Oh wait yeah I know why. $$$$

Um, what kind of ilvl were you guys at when you did those (and for the tanking one, what class)?

Here's how Xuen went for me, without doing any research:

- OH THAT BLOOD GROUND EFFECT TICKS ON YOU FOR 50K. OH HE'S STUNNABLE.
- Oh he died in 30 seconds.

Cloak done with the cheesy balcony method. Gave it a few shots without that approach, but I only ever got him to about half before the bloods spawned and annihilated me. Maybe if I was a little more skilled at staying behind him for the extra big hits, but didn't really care to spend the time trying for a more legit kill after the fifth death or so.

Should probably get my butt in gear and finally spend some time on the green fire scenario now.

H primo down in two tries. Made a few mitakes, but nothing breaking (actually it was the old tanks that fucked up on Viscous adds and blew us all up, while I managed a save on a *very* close call \o/)

DA is actually pretty boring so far, but considering we hardly ever made it beyond the 2:30 mark...
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Yeah, DA is incredibly boring, and yet so easy to wipe to.

I hate those fights. Although at least it is only 3 minutes of boredom instead of 9, like with Sindragosa.

Problem is this "boredom" is also "move 1 step too close and wipe the raid", since if 2 golems get too close (either to bad positionement or one person dieing to Anima Font) it leads to a chain reaction and a swift raid wipe (almost impossible to recover)

Me:"Yup."
Friend:"So what do you do?"
Me:"You pick an add and dps it to like 20% and then you stand there."
Friend:"Really?"
Me:"Yup and then after 3 1/2 minutes you get to actually do something."

Ah. That explains the "piss easy" comments then. *shrug*

They should have done gear-normalization for those. (ILVL 505 would be about right, I think.)

I read about a half dozen "ZOMG, snorefest" comments when I had trouble with mine... a big part of it for pallies seems to come from making sure that 1) you're ready to run at all times and 2) you don't stun DW in the bad (holy wrath was my downfall), because Wrathion's going to keep standing on it. Once I got over that, I couldn't do the rocket bit for some reason that I was never able to figure out (think about a dozen tries for me).

Oh, at least one commenter did admit to using a shadopan companion, which made it awesomely easy (they do better DPS, don't seem to be as dumb AI-wise and there's a healer) :P

Biggest advantage for Paladins compared to other tanks is that you can heal Wrathion.

Be quick on the taunt and you don't need to heal Wrathion.

Oh wow I was ahead of you? I'm a dirty stinky unwashed casual, how did that ever happen? :shock:

We got Qon last week, much cleaner kill tonight. Got the shoulder token from my coin roll, and that pushed my hunter all the way to 539! :) (Had the H-Horridon chestpiece in my bag, the shoulder lets me now use it without breaking 4-set.)

Unfortunately, the raid server was having all kinds of problems - we wiped once on Twins and everybody (except one or two) got stuck on the loading screen. Permanently. Re-staring the game put us ... back on the loading screen. (We could log into other chars not in Throne just fine, however...)

Forced us to quit about an hour early. :(
