For new readers (or those of you with short-term memory... Hai Calli)
I have been spending... An eternity combatting Arthas (thats the Lich king) on heroic mode.
For the time being I do not consider myself very heroic. As a matter of fact I feel very much like a little baby. Who hasn't had any sleep and who has not yet been fed.
That is how this fight is making me feel.
This is me
And let me tell you, Arthas must be one evil arse mo-fo if he enjoys taking a big sword and slashing it into the above.
And boy does he love it.
I tried to add our attempts together with the 1 minute his speech at the start of the fight takes. I got very depressed. And that is just the heroic mode times. Im not going to tell again. I might cry.
I am starting to feel very tired with this fight. And I am not the only one. I think 9 of our groups regular 11 members are hating it. (there is one of those who does not hate the fight that has a neat title "the insane" -nuff said?)
At the moment, we do not have more than a solid 2 hours a raid-day that can be spent on him. After that our attempts just gets wasted because we start slipping up. Or the game breaks on us.
I think my killed-from list now has Arthas as number one followed by "death by combat-log breaking down so that you get no warnings" as a close second. With Alganon as a possible distant third. Unfortunelty the statistics page is very poorly done, so it only counts the time I've died by Arthas hand, and not the times that so and such ability killed me IN the Lich King fight.
The clouds are breaking
But I can see glimps of light in the distance. We do have phase one and mostly phase two down. We are now battling with phase 3 (thats the last one) and we did get him as far down as 38% at one time.
(Remember he only needs to reach 10% for it to be a win.) Only thing is. We cannot seem to find the save-points.
So whenever we wipe, the fight resets, and we are back at the very beginning. With the intro-speech and everything.
So if anyone knows where the save-points are, please let me know. maybe if I hit the right combo of XXYYOOXXXYYYYY [UP][RIGHT][LEFT]XXX We will get invincible mode unlocked. It has not seemed to work yet, and Mrs Dwism keeps yelling at me to put my Xbox controller down when playing WoW.
As you might be able to gather from this, I am grasping at straws to remain just a little bit sane. But the sands of my sanity-well is dribbling out, and to me it does not look like Lich kings health is going down fast enough to keep up.
So if my next post is all about the dunking bananas from vampire-penguin-land, you will know why.
At least we will get the 25% buff this week.
