Well, we got Morogrim down in 3 days of tries, overall after a week (Th-Th). I found I wanted more spell damage ^_^ so over the weekend and on Tuesday I recieved my tier 4 gloves, tier 4 pants, and the Eye of Magtheridon :) this gear + a wizard oil put me over 500 spell damage for the fight, and yesterday we ripped Morogrim a new one and downed him almost flawlessly (8.4k HP mage died in a grave >.<) on our 3rd try (me tanking all the Murlocs, of course). Good times :twisted:

combat log diving for fun and profit

Postby fuzzygeek » Fri Aug 31, 2007 4:40 pm

Finding stuff like this in the combat log is fun.

8/30 22:19:28.437 You gain Holy Shield.
8/30 22:19:28.812 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You dodge.
-----
8/30 22:19:30.390 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You dodge.
8/30 22:19:30.703 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You parry.
-----
8/30 22:19:31.937 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You dodge.
-----
8/30 22:19:32.812 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You dodge.
8/30 22:19:32.828 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You dodge.
-----
8/30 22:19:33.890 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You dodge.
-----
8/30 22:19:34.156 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You parry.
-----
8/30 22:19:35.546 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You dodge.
-----
8/30 22:19:36.859 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You dodge.
-----
8/30 22:19:38.218 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You dodge.
8/30 22:19:38.562 Holy Shield fades from you.


Finding stuff like this, however, is scary:

8/30 22:19:27.000 Holy Shield fades from you.
8/30 22:19:27.609 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You parry.
8/30 22:19:27.609 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You dodge.
8/30 22:19:27.687 Prince Malchezaar gains 2 extra attacks through Thrash.
8/30 22:19:27.718 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You parry.
8/30 22:19:27.718 Prince Malchezaar attacks. You dodge.
8/30 22:19:28.437 You gain Holy Shield.

I blame the GCD.

My guild just killed High King Maulgar for the first time tonight (joined a new guild recently). I was the MT, and the main healer said that it was the smoothest healing of a MT he had seen. :D

Maulgar down - and first time the guild ever downed him at that.

Also, took us 4 attempts to kill him and it was the first time the guild had ever been in there ;p.

If by "5 miss" you mean your miss% (from the defense tooltip) + 5%, then yes that is correct. Don't forget to include the 5.33% from the Libram of Reptenance when you get it. :)

I'm excited, I main tanked curator through ilhoof in kara today, this is second time I've ever raid tanked, first time was maiden and a disaster, was too nervous.

AND I GOT GEAR! AWOEMSDOMFSDKLFMSDF!

This is the first time I've ever gotten epics I actually care about in this game after a year of playing. Picked up T4 gloves off curator and battlescar boots off of chess event.

I just did my second proper evening of Kara, today I was MT!, and Raid Leader! :o

My god that was draining, being responsible for 10 peoples live is tricky, I felt absolutely crappy every time we wiped. Anyway, we eventually downed Moroes, and he gave me his pocket watch, by the end there were only both tanks and one healer standing, we didnt even have enough DPS to down the final add after Moroes, I just DId the healer instead :p.

Kara is intense

We had our normal MT out on vacation this week and a new tank in on Vashj to get his vial, so I stepped up to the plate to tank. MT for 100%- 70% and 50% - 0%.

Following downing Morogrim and Karathess as first kills, which puts me at 5/6 SSC and 2/4 TK now, I took part in a 15 man surgical strike on Exodar. After aoe tanking dozens of guards at once (<3 infinite guard spawn), we reached the Prophet, and after tanking him AND his guards at once, an alliance leader went down, and Exodar became ours =).

My guild downed prince for the first time this Friday. After he was died an infernal landed right on his body so we had to wait before we could loot him.

Here is the video a shadow priest took of us downing him, we got real lucky with infernals.

Wow a bragging topic! Then i want to make my first post as something that made me happy, since i successfully menaged to convince our warrior MT to let me tank Gruul and finally convinced him that we paladins can tank everything!

Finally got the chance to take Prince this weekend. First two attempts I got whacked at the end of phase 2 due to healer movement and lack of HoTs. Third time I switched out block kit for dodge and the guy went down like he's supposed to. There was much cheering.

But, progress!

Got my libram, which makes me uncrushable and my Vindicators Haulberk!

Good times.

Hey guys, now on my third Karazhan run as a guild tank.

Unfortunately our MT was unable to join us straight away because their puppy was sick (poor puppy :S)

Fortunately that meant I got to be main tank for a while and I took the opportunity to show my guild what I could do.

We got to Attument's area with a few deaths, due to the fact that a lot of the regular people were missing. We were down one mage and shammy and had replaced these with various Pallies (5 in all) so there were some unexperienced players. Unfortunately we had no-one who could off tank as the shammies alt was out back up tank.

Anyway the raid leaders first tactic was to us a ret pally as a tank. I havnt done enough raid tanking to pass criticism and tbh the raid leader was filling in for the main tank anyway. Nevertheless I couldnt help but wince slightly as the Pally went to tank midknight with his big two hander. Again this wasnt his fault as he doesnt know anything about tanking. He died pretty much immediately and I took over tanking both which I managed for a while but most people were dead by this point.

After seeing me tank both Midnight and Attumen with not much of a health loss (one pally was keeping me up) the raid leader said I should tank both at the same time while we burn Midnight then Attunmen.
I was completely crapping myself. I had no idea how hard these guys hit and I was only just uncrushable. Two epics so far, Tankatronic Goggles and the Violet signet at honoured.

Anyway to cut a long story short I picked up Midnight then Attumen and tanked them both so easily it was untrue. Nobody died, I never had to use LOH or bubble or anything.

Also last week we took down Moroes with me as off tank but like someone else who tanked this guy recently I ended up taking aggro off the main tank so many times. I ended up just stopping hitting him with anything but auto attack but he just wouldnt leave me alone.

We also tried Romulo & Julienne but couldnt get them both to die at the same time :S & Maiden who I changed into healing gear for and is pretty nasty although we only had one try.

By the way im now 1.6% off uncrushable which will be taken care off with the heroic libram this week :D

After a really rough early week, wiping repeatedly on Moroes on night one, we downed him on Night two the first shot. We then went and one-shotted Maiden and Opera (R&J), cleared to Curator, and got him down on the third attempt. Second time ever the guild has dropped him. :)

Night three, we went in, cleared to Chess, did that, then headed back down for an Illhoof attempt or two on a whim, as the trash was spawning in behind us and we were all pretty tired. Second attempt we got him down to 48%.

Normally, I wouldn't crow about this, but that was Thursday night. I've had company over during the weekend and only played a couple of alts. Last night I logged into my Paladin and discovered that that 48% attempt was done with me in my block set that I use for non-heroics and farming the BT Terrace. I was 5.20% crushable, and we still managed to get him down to 48%. :D :oops:
