Sorry for the lack of updates, I really haven’t had any further guides to put up, or at least anything that wouldn’t be just wasted space 🙂 My guild is working on Sindragosa 10, which goes as this. First phase, is easy. Second phase is OMG please survive. Honestly, it’s mostly a matter of everybody clearing their stacks when they can, and not falling behind on the frost tombs. The problem is that it’s much easier said than done. Blood Queen seems a lot easier now. Putricide is easy except for the last 15 seconds of the fight. Really. When there’s slimes everywhere and no place to go and a huge AoE is ticking, it’s tough.
So what have I been up to outside of Wow? Well, I’ve been getting back into Magic:The Gathering. I used to play, but I stopped for about 10 years or so. We have a growing community here, so I generally play Friday Night Magic, then come home to raid. To those who play it, I feel like I’m making progress in the metagame playing a W/R controllish deck featuring a Stoneforge Mystic/Basilisk Collar/Cunning Sparkmage package. Oh. And Earthquake. And Tuktuk The Explorer. But going searching for phat loots with my Mystic FEELS like WoW.
What else? Playing some of the Starcraft II beta, which is really good, and will be a “serious” e-sport game. I’m not sure if it deserves it as much as say, League of Legends, but it is rock-solid Blizzard programming and it IS Starcraft.
Speaking of Starcraft, I’ve also been following the exploits of “The Cutest Zealot Ever” (According to TVTropes users), and watching Angel Beats!. Be warned. This show is the ultimate mood whiplash, and it goes back and forth between LOL funny and omg tearjerker/heartwarming. The last episode actually had what may have been a WoW reference even….IN THE MOUNTAINS!!
So, the healing advice here? Honestly, when doing an early raid, I find it can be difficult to stay focused. I find some music you can pop on if you need a little pick me up helps a bit. As I’m into anime right now, I find that my pep up playlist is mostly that stuff. The linked video above (My Soul, Your Beats!), Soriano Days and Libra Me FROM HELL from Gurran Lagann, Ready Steady Go, and some other random things, Spaceman and Mr. Brightside by The Killers, and Gold, Guns, Girls by Metric.
It’s not a good idea to blast music so you can’t hear Vent, but to keep focus sometimes some music or something to get you pumped up or help you refocus can help for a long night of raiding. The best is when the music fits in with the various phases so you actually have some fight music 🙂
