3.2.2 Hits; Lag and Updates
September 23, 2009 8 Comments
Well, it’s official. As of yesterday, 3.2.2 is the live version of World of Warcraft. My server came up on time, but no instances were able to launch. By the time they decided to reset the server to fix the problem, it was time to head out to my in-laws place for the Mrs. birthday, so no Direbrew before raid. Then there was the rest of the evening…
We got home in time to raid, and after a one shot of Northrend Beasts (as expected), we waited the 5 minutes for loot to make it to people’s bags. When Jaraxxas spawned, only half the raid could see him, and the MT was not one of those people. He ran 30 yards and one shot me, followed by the rest of the raid. We decided that it was a fluke and tried again. “None of my heals are going off” –Javaed. Jav was dead not too far after. Same thing happened to another healer, and raiding was deemed a no-go.
I put together a Heroic ToC to attempt getting the new dagger, and 45 minutes later everyone managed to actually get into the instance. They’ve fixed the first encounter, which I’m grateful for. I’ve seen that fight from every angle possible (Tank, Melee, Ranged, Caster, and Heals), and while it’s no issue half the time, when it bugs, you’re better off running out. Thankfully, they auto reset after being dismounted now, so no more of that.
We got Eadric, which was fortunate. I don’t want to know what would have happened with Confessor + Lag. I lost control of my toon during phase 2 of Black Knight in the middle of some exploding ghouls, and without my DPS, Phase 3 was Phase Phail. Got him on the second time, and HE DROPPED A DAGGER, which unfortunately was the Spectral Kris.
Anyway, Patch day aside, I’ve got some work to do to bring my guides current, and as soon as I get a dagger, I’m probably going back Assassination, as the buffs to it were quite nice in this patch. Hopefully the Black knight will be nice to me and drop it today. I’d love to get some DPS testing done.
