Late Friday night I convinced everyone to scrap the 10 man Naxx runs and get back into heroic Naxx. Some grumbled about going to do more wipes instead of having their easy runs but we got it going finally.
Thaddius was all we had left in the Construct wing and the other three wings were cleared. We had some wipes on Thaddius on Thursday so we already had some practice. It took 3 more tries on Friday night and he was down. All 4 wings clear! Yay!
We went on to Sapphiron but it was late. We gave him 4 tries but never got below 80%.
10 mans were on the schedule for Saturday night. Again, I was able to convince everyone to scrap the 2 10 mans and go heroic. It was late by the time we got it going. We gave Sapphiron about 8 tries but we never made any real progress. I think our best attempt might have been 60%.
Sunday night is the actual night we schedule 25 mans so we were back in heroic Naxx again the next night. This time it wasn’t so late and we weren’t so tired. It took 4 more tries but Sapphiron dropped! It was unanimous that the key to the Eye of Eternity went to me since I almost never miss a raid.
We still had time to make some attempts on KT. I must have had 6 people whisper me that KT was going to drop the Last Laugh for me. Yep, I’m still using the blue quality weapon, the Infantry Assault Blade. I’ve lost count of how many runs I’ve made of Pinnacle and still no sword. I am the only tank in our guild to not have an epic weapon. Pretty sad since I am the MT.
Anyway, we got KT to 30% on the first attempt. 20% on the second attempt. KT fell on the 3rd attempt! Heroic Naxx cleared! Gratz to GBU on our guild first! I think we were the 12th on our server to do it.
And guess what dropped? Yep, Last Laugh. And then one of the Pally OT’s, who already had the Red Sword of Courage, beat me on EPGP. He had a ratio of 1.47 and I had a ratio of 1.45. Others tried to talk him out of it but he just ignored them. He had the points and the weapon was his.
