Every single week when someone pugs to zerg Sartharion for the drake mount I try to make sure I join in. Its a fun mount that I wouldnt mind having. Both the black drake from 10-man and the Twilight drake from 25-man. Sadly, the First 25-man version I did ended with the raid leader ninjaing the mount.
But yesterday night I did another zerg. Not only was I amongst the top 3 in dps, I was also the only one who survived! As Ive made it through the exit and rolled on the drake and whatnot I cheer in raid chat I survived! Woot! a couple of the others point out And you got the drake, you lucky bastard! I hadnt even noticed. I just naturally assumed I lost the roll. But I didnt. I really did win.
I flew around circling Dalaran for at least 30 minutes playing with it. Even though I already have the red and bronze drake mount, and the albino drake on my tank, I still thought this particular one was better then all of them. Go figure.
Furthermore I joined an ICC 25-man pug. These pugs usually ends at the first wing since people tend to drop or ninjalog by the time we finish Deathbringer Saurfang. The resto shield of Lord Marrowgar -finally- dropped and I won the roll against another resto shaman with only SEVEN points. I was so excited, finally I didnt have to farm for a new shield anymore.
Ive been farming ToC 10 and 25-man every week to see if it would drop. Unfortunately, either the groups were so shitty they never made it to the bosses that drops the shield, or it didnt drop at all. Frustrating to say the least. Especially since its one of the very few lower item levels I had that were starting to become obsolete compared to the content I was running. I had already been chatting about it on vent while the group was forming, so when I won the shield several people were almost as excited as I was, and one guy enchanted it for me on the spot.
And later today.. Im healing the Lich King in 10-man. Im hoping well get him down, cause its an achievement Ive been wanting to have ever since it got out, and this is one of my few opportunities before I go on vacation.
Wish me luck!
