I began the day only needing oneÂ Titan RunestoneÂ drop off one of the eight bosses in the first two wings of Siege of Orgrimmar. Â I figured no problem and that the odds were in my favor. Â How quickly i sometimes forget just how unlucky i can be. Â I should have known better.
My first queue pops and unfortunately takes me directly to General Nazgrim already in progress. Â As i’m running in i see a ready check and don’t hesitate to click not ready since i’m not in the room. Â The tank begins the encounter anyways and locks me out of the room. Â I’m not ashamed to admit i was hoping for a wipe so i could actually get credit for the fight and hopefully my last runestone. Â Well that didn’t happen but it didn’t count against a possible loot lockout so all was well.
My next queue got me into the first wing where i proceeded to go 0/4. Â Only four more chances in wing two at that point. Â Well there i was 0/3 in that wing and on my way to Nazgrim again. Â No way could i go 0/8 is what i was thinking as i ran back after a trash wipe prior to General. Â Well guess what happened as i was running back? Â You guessed it – the tank begins the encounter without any ready check and locks me out again! Â I sat there twiddling my thumbs as they killed him.
Well that forced me to have to do the same wing again from scratch. Â This time i made damn sure my butt was situated in that room before a tank even thought about starting the encounter. Â We killed the boss on the first attempt, which seems to be a rarity in LFR on this particular boss, and i got my final runestone.
Now i have a cape that only dirty anime fans would enjoy.
