Alt-tastic!

Armed with extreme patience, Grayhorn managed to finish the legendary Val’anyr, Hammer of the Ancient Kings yesterday. Having run alt raids in Ulduar for what seems an eternity, putting up with all kinds of less than stellar performances by random pug members, the reward could finally be claimed from the gaping maw of Yogg-Saron.

Congratulations to what is most likely Stormscales only alt with this hammer.

The new Capt. Hammer!

Fight it with fire.

Glory is not only one of the better looking villains in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but also a meta achievement in Ulduar. Our 10 man group finished off this achievement yesterday following the slew of nerfs to Mimiron’s hard mode Firefighter. The fact that they one-shotted the hard mode might suggest the nerfs were a little heavy handed. This opens up the path for us to fight the last boss in the zone, Algalon.

Here is some of the happy crew on their brand new Rusted Proto-Drakes:

The glory part of the achievement refers to being able to show off in Dalaran, as seen in this picture.

Knock, knock. Who’s there? Summer. Summer wh…oh.

Summer is here close (depending a bit on how far north you live), and it’s starting to show on the sign-ups. We had plans on practicing the hard mode on Freya, or Fr√łya as we Norwegians call her, but settled for the semi hard mode and a day off instead.  We had tried this a bit really early on, but sort of hit a brick wall, so imagine our surprise when we came back and did it in 3 tries. Good times. To balance things out we played horribly for the rest of the night.

Freya semi hard...yeah, I know that sounds kinky.
