Talked things over with the Officers and it looks like we're going to try to accelerate our progress a little bit. We're all anxious that the xpac is on the horizon, and the raids that we're doing now will be long forgotten by Christmas. As long as we feel the team is overall geared up, even close to enough, we're gonna try to push past bosses as fast as we can. If a boss has already been killed, and is considered optional to a dungeon, pretty much gonna skip.
I was originally hoping to farm Gruul's and Magtheridon, and master each until we could do both together in a single 2 hour raid. After talking it over, we figure that we're pretty much ready to move on, and not linger too much longer. Kill Maggy a couple more times, just for the sake of proving its not a fluke, and to get a couple more pieces of gear for folks to boost up some healing capacity and maybe some under performing DPS.
That means SSC is coming up soon. If we have 20 ppl from the guild online this Sunday, we'll probably go in.
That means we need the specialized magic resist gear for our tanks.
That means we need primals galore.
Luckily, Amava's got a financial manager (AH mule alt) who likes to squirrel away valuables for rainy days, and so a couple of stacks of Lifes, Fires, and Waters went into the Guild Bank, getting us pretty close to what we need. Supposedly also need Shadow, but I'm all out. Time to kill some of the Void guys over by the Clefthoof farming grounds.
Its a little corny, but there's a part of me that likes the Guild-wide effort like gathering up Primals to gear people up.
Of course, there's also a part of me that thinks that specialized gear for just one encounter is stupid. And even more so once one of those players jumps ship, and takes their soulbound resist gear with them.
But, at least for now, I'm somewhat amused by the process.
