I am legendary

I don’t usually brag about things, maybe cause I don’t feel like I have a lot to brag about, so I think I’m allowed to do it this one time. I’m just proud and happy cause I finally got my Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa’s Rest! I think it took around two months in total, and I wasn’t sure if I would get it this week cause of the Smouldering Essences nerf and we were forced to do 10 man this week and you get less in 10 man, but I got precisely as many as I needed.

The reason we had to do 10 man was that we the last weeks haven’t had enough people or a good enough setup for Ragnaros 25 heroic on Sundays and Tuesdays, so this week we wanted to do two 10 mans instead but some people went and got saved to a pug, so we only had enough for one. But it was a very good group. Our best tanks, two of the best healers and some of our top and best geared dps. I think our best try on Ragnaros 25 heroic was around 40% in phase 4, which means we just hit phase 4 and didn’t really get control of it. But now in 10 man it was much easier to get to phase 4. We got to it with only one meteor which was fairly easy to control and get down, but we ran out of time and had to kill him normal. Our best try was around 26%. I’m sure we would have taken him down if we had more time, but I think we’ll be doing 25 man on Thursday and it might be a setback as it’s harder to control, more people and some people will fail or fuck up. Still hoping for some good tries next week and a kill before 4.3.

So I’m proud of our progress on Ragnaros and that I got the Dragonwrath, it has increased my dps a lot and I’m looking forward to trying it out in next raid. We now have three staffs in the guild. The legendary quest chain has also been very interesting and a lot of fun.

I also had to check WoW Progress and update my character cause it’s always fun to see how your gear is compared to other people and other druids on the realm, in the rest of EU and the world. So I have to admit that I’m a bit proud to now be #1 Druid on Kazzak, #14 on Kazzak and #17 Druid in EU English, #27 Druid in EU (including German, Spanish, French and Russian realms) and #50 Druid in the world!

It might not matter that much or mean anything at all to others, but I think it’s fun to know.

And a small update: Legendary is awesome! My dps is so much higher now, it’s insane! Here are before and after screenshots.

 

 

Dragonwrath – Still collecting

I completed the Time Grows Short quest where you have to collect Seething Cinders a few weeks back, so I got the 2nd stage of the staff called Runestaff of Nordrassil which was a nice upgrade from what I had before

I’m now on the final collecting quest Heart of Flame where I have to collect 250 Smouldering Essences and then Heart of Flame from Ragnaros. It will take about 5-6 clears to collect all essences, and then I’ll get the final quest which rewards the legendary staff Dragonwrath.

A mage in the guild is getting his legendary this Tuesday which will be the second staff in the guild.

Dragonwrath

Ever since we heard about the legendary caster staff there has been a lot of discussion and a bit of drama in our guild about who was getting the first. But as we use loot council our officer team and guild master chose who was getting it. We have some really good casters and the two first ones were pretty obvious, and the third one is me. I never thought I’d be getting a legendary weapon, but this staff really isn’t that hard to get as more than one can be on the quest at the same time, but different stages, so not like Shadowmourne and Val’anyr.

Our warlock started first and has now the second stage of the staff which is an upgrade for most, I’m not sure how much longer it will take before he gets the legendary, maybe a week or more. Our mage is still collecting Seething Cinders. I have just finished the first part in Firelands where you gather focus from the bosses to get the first stage of the staff, the Branch of Nordrassil. It’s not an upgrade for me so I’m not using it at the moment, but waiting for second stage.

The quest chain and storyline is great, it took me extra long cause I wanted to really get into it and know how and why.  I know someone posted a video of the quests on YouTube and MMO-Champion when it was new on PTR but I never watched it cause I wanted to experience it myself, not just watch someone else do it.

I loved the quests in the Nexus, but it was kinda hard at first, cause I died more than a few times. The mobs hurt more than you think and some of them spawned so fast I didn’t have time, or I forgot to eat/drink/heal up. But it was fun also, and after some tries I got through to the final boss in there which was a pain at first cause I can’t interrupt as moonkin, or well, once every minute, and I had to heal myself almost all the time. But I made it after like 3-4 tries by healing myself, dots on the boss, running down the ramp when he casts the fire and rooting and hibernating the adds.

The Firelands part was also a lot of fun, simple and easy. You just have to loot a few items and place them on a specific spot on each boss and then loot it again. But you can’t really do that and focus on dps at the same time, so it can be harder on heroic bosses, but it didn’t take me more than a few tries max so I could go back to dpsing.

When I had the four focuses from the four first bosses I opened the portal to the Anvil of Conflagration and Volcanus the Firelord which is the quest boss you have to kill to get the first stage of the staff.

I’m looking forward to continuing on the quest and recover the rest of the staff. If you need a good guide with info about how to get it and exactly what to do, check out Icy Veins’ guide.
