Welllll… That was fast. Tuesday I logged in needing a Hallowed Helm and a Tooth Pick. I got my Tooth Pick in my first treat bag of the evening. I then Instantly joined Trade chat seeking out a HH Group. Don’t ask why LFG doesn’t happen in the LFG channel. If you don’t know that Trade is for LFG by now, you haven’t been playing WoW nearly long enough. Or you have a guild with more than 5 people in it. Wait, I think we have 6. Drew, Liz, Tom, Me, Eli(what’s her name anyway?), and that other guy… What’s his name? Oh I forget. Noah. That’s his name. Right?
Well. yeah. I joined Trade chat to look for a group. Got a group pretty quick. got 6 summons because someone hadn’t ever done it before, and didn’t see the helm drop at all, but we did have 4 Temporary mounts drop. So I have a Broom for the next little while. I still have not seen the mount drop at this point. So, I logged off Tuesday night needing only the Hallowed Helm for my achievement. Wednesday night I logged in, Started looking for a group. Got a group, ported to IF, Got on a Gryphon and… WoW Error. Log back in. Oh good. I’m still in the group. WoW Error. Run a Repair, Log In. Kicked from the Group, sitting in Chillwind Camp. Great. no trade chat. Join LFG for H Nexus, Spam LFG for HH boss. No dice. Fly back to IF. Join Trade Chat. Heals LFG HH. Have Summon. Invited. This is why we use Trade as LFG…
We get there, The rogue is still in WG. WTF? The DK Tank questions my ability to heal with a level 70 Mace, Level 70 Gloves and Bracers and a level 68 Starfire Idol… OK. Umm…. healing HH is easy. a DK with Bandages could do it. Plus, I kind of have experience. I healed every TBC encounter up to Bloodboil(in T4 gear). In Wrath, I’ve healed all but the last boss of ToC and Algalon… I kind of know what I’m doing. Plus, I’ve healed HH 5+ times a day since Sunday. I’ve got this down. So. the rogue was taking forever and the Spriest had to leave for a raid in 5 minutes. so we used his summon and took out the HH. The Helm dropped and I won the Roll.
Achievement done. Hallowed be my Name! We sat and waited, then the group kind of fell apart. So, I hearthed and started doing Dailies, and also I ran to get a new mace from the Kalu’ak, because I could. Get a whisper for H Nexus. Oh yeah I forgot about that. Sure. I’ll go. Nervous as all get out. We did fine though. The rest of the group was better geared than I, but I think I just forgot how easy that place is. I never had mana issues and we roflstomped it. No helm or mace for me though.
After that was done, we headed to Gundrak, and had a pretty good time roflstomping that. I’m now the proud owner of 10 Emblems of Conquest, which is cool. I’ll be able to afford a big Boy idol soon. It also gave me confidence to try some of the harder Heroics. There was a group for H HoL starting, but I don’t remember that place being easy, so I decided to wait and go to Nexus again tonight. Cross your fingers for my Mace and Helmet.
