Last night, due to not having enough people on to do ICC, I decided to go and try my hand at soloing Kara. Initially, when I was thinking about soloing raids I was going to start with the level 60 ones first and work my way up, but for some reason I was drawn to this one.
So, being a total n00b, having never been there before (well, kinda – went once with the wife so she could get the mongoose enchant… but I honestly remembered nothing about it!), I found out where it was and ran down there only to find a locked gate. W00t. So I spent a few minutes looking into how you obtain the key and decided that it would probably take me longer than I wanted right now, so instead I logged on the missus’ 80 rogue (her ex-main and first ever char) to pick it for me.
Then I realised (after I was already in the instance) that my bags were completely full! Way to go Kal, you’re so l337. 😐
So, a little while later, after clearing my bags I was in and ready to go.
Now I’ve never done more than Moroes in the past, and that was a long time ago, so I figured I should probably try and look at some tactics and maybe try to find out in which order I would be encountering bosses. I found this extremely handy post (follow on post here) on wow.com which is actually written for Druids. Perfect. 😀
So, with a little knowledge I started with Attumen. Not too much trouble here, didn’t have to use any major CDs, just kept barkskin up. I did clear all the trash leading up to Midnight first which was probably good advice to follow.
I then went on to Moroes, clearing the entire banquet hall first. I lost slightly more health on this one than on Attumen, but nothing too alarming. At one point I got down to about 50% (around 20k) so popped SI/FR. Otherwise, another fairly simple one.
I proceeded to fumble around a bit, looking for more bosses, finally finding Maiden of Virtue. This was by far the easiest fight of the three, I basically just stood there hitting her, barely taking 5k damage throughout the whole fight.
It was a bit late by this point, so I decided to call it a night, plus I’ve read that the Opera event can be a real pain, so I’ll probably need a bit of time on that one. I’ll certainly try and get back to do some more this week.
Was a lot of fun and I probably made quite a bit of gold from it too, which is a nice side effect. I didn’t get round to selling all the loot I got, but it should sell for a fair bit.
