So, I picked up one of the two Grim Toll drops last night. That let me scale back my +hit gems from 8 down to 5. It will also give me an extra talent point back. Now I just have to figure out where to spend it!
All in all it was a very good night. We cleared three wings very fast. Around the third hour (midnight ET) we hit Thaddius and wiped three times. The first was the most bizarre thing. It was on his minions. One of the tanks DC'd. So all of a sudden one of the two guys starts running over so that they both beat up on the one tank who isn't DC'd. Of course half the raid gets chain lightninged to death as soon as he runs down the ramp. Pretty funny honestly. However, it is a long run back. Tiring, perhaps. So then two attempts and we lose people the each time off the bat. I think two people were new to the whole thing. :( So two runs back and a final wipe and we call it. Very close to doing four wings in 3-1/4 hours, which felt like a nice brisk pace. We also had every dps putting out 100-600 more dps from the last raid on the same content. Also pretty nice.
