How to Make a Feral Druid Cry
Step 1: Spec Resto or Balance.
Step 2: Loot Fandral’s Flamescythe because you are the only Druid in your 10-man raid.
Step 3: Hang out in the busiest section of your capital city while in fire kitty form.
Step 4: Enjoy the sweet, sweet cries of pain and jealousy from your Feral brothers and sisters.

Ok, so usually I’m not such an attention whore, but dammit, this staff is sweet! I’ve been joking about how the staff is mine ever since Blizzard announced it. Then when it dropped I was the only one in the raid who could possibly use it – we didn’t even have our Hunter with us because she wasn’t feeling well last night. Of course, everyone joked about how we should just shard it, but they knew better than to face my wrath.
I guess I can start recruiting Feral Druids now that I know they can’t steal my precioussss…
In Which We Learn A Valuable Lesson While Dying Repeatedly
This week we learned a very valuable lesson: It is a bad idea to have only one person who knows an essential task.
For example, if only one person knows how to do the flying on the Alysrazor fight, and then that person can’t make it to raid one week, the raid group is completely screwed. It took us about 5 hours of wiping over two raid nights, but we finally, FINALLY managed to get that damn bird down again. (Sure, it took us three complete sets of phases to do it instead of two, but she died and that’s all that matters.)
The good news is that we know the ground crew is capable of doing its job and doesn’t lose focus or fall apart during multiple sets of phases; and we also have at least one more person who knows how to do the flying. (Yay, Naishee!)
We fought so hard to get her down this week that we felt it deserved another screenshot. Shishioo, if you’re reading this, I want you to know we can do it without you! Now never abandon us again. Seriously. We need you.
I keep meaning to blog about all the new exciting changes that were announced for Patch 4.3, and also about how we’re starting up a second raid group. I guess I should do that soon. Keep your eyes open!
