What It Takes To Lead A Raid

Well my daughter recently restarted her old guild again. She asked me a rather strange question today. She asked me to start leading her 10 man ICCs when they start running them. She’s never been in ICC before, sand she only has 1 other person so far that’s in T10 gear also. Oh, and did I mention Wife is also going to be coming along? Now the big question is will Wife’s computer be able to handle ICC 10 man? If not will she be willing to use the desktop we have setup in the back room? Time will tell. The next question on the agenda is beer or xanax while I’m herding the cats? 😉

Duranub has 7 of the bosses on farm right now, and we’re working on Blood Queen. So I know the first 7 fights pretty well on 25 man, however I’ve never been to the 10 man version. So it’s time for me to do some research about all the trash, traps, mobs, and bosses we’ll find. Luckily, I have access to the interwebz, and all the great people in both House Stalwart and Duranub. So it’s time to start studying up on the difference between 10 and 25 man ICC.  So wish me luck, and pass the beer and Excedrin.

So now we’re working on gearing Wife’s hunter and the Kid’s druid. The 3 of us have started running randoms together, and hitting the weekly raid when we can. I’ll probably keep running them on Gwen until I can get enough badges to finish getting all the heirloom gear I want for my furry warrior, and the mammoth mount. After that, well it depends, I’m about to hit 80 on my shammy, and my DK still needs more badge gear also. So I guess it will depend on what I feel like at the time. It should be a lot of fun… and a little stressful.

So I finally had a little bit of loot luck the other week. Zod’s finally dropped for me and I hit exalted with the Ashen Verdict. So now all I need is the damn trinket to drop…

So until next time don’t forget to reload, so you don’t run out of ammo.

    I do not envy you; leading raids can be painful. Good luck in your endeavor, and just remember to have fun – that’s the hardest part of herding cats. 😉

      Thanks man. I’m still working on getting Wife and daughter geared up. Once that’s done, then the next wave of fun begins. Lol
