Last Thursday night was the first night we had an attempt to get to the new content (Rotface et all) in Icecrown.

Except Saurfang was being annoying and not letting us pass. Now I remember Blizzard saying something about how they don’t want to restrict people to having certain types of groups or requiring certain classes in order to be able to pass content. Sure, it was a while ago (probably at the release of Wrath infact).

However the nature of the Saurfang encounter demands ranged DPS. You could do the entire fight with all ranged DPS if you wanted even (excepting the obligatory tanks/heals of course). Our group on the night was very melee heavy (only 2 warlocks for ranged dps), and this meant that we couldn’t manage the blood beasts.

Tonight we’re up for round two, and our first attempts at the new content. Seeing we will have our usual group together (fingers crossed), I’m not expecting Saurfang to give us any trouble (seeing as how we pretty much have him down usually).

I’m more commenting on the fact that this encounter does seem to be at odds with the previously announced Blizzard philosophy of being more lenient on the balance of your raid.

Perhaps the long overdue Icecrown Citadel is nearly on its way.

Blizz has just released some new pages detailing some of the bosses to expect and the dungeon layouts. Initially, I was confused as to why they would release the layouts before people had even been in there when I remembered they now have that map feature. So as soon as someone sets foot inside it will display the whole zone.

They have also put out some new videos, see them here

After much (all right one time) whining from Marlokh about how his heirloom breastplate for his paladin is hot pink & how he needs a tabard to cover it up, I began the arduous task of choosing a guild tabard that will hopefully perform the task adequately. Keeping in mind that I am a girl and what I think is manly doesn’t always qualify as such I give you the new guild tabard:

Okay, not the best picture, but you get the idea. Get your guild tabard from this orc (it’ll be a badly washed gray until you put it on) & enjoy your more manly, respectable look. Nobody will know you’re wearing hot pink tops & fishnet stockings underneath!

Well I have been flapping around the Storm peaks for a few days now and still no luck.

But I’m not giving up yet :)
