On Thursday night, five Shattered Ravens descended into Setthek Halls to face Anzu, the Raven God.
And we won.
Yes, finally the Swift Flight Form is mine, and I'm delighted.
I do have two confessions, though…
First of all, this was my first heroic. I don't have much play time available to me, and a run through Kara once or twice a week is about all I can manage. And, to be honest, I've been a little nervous of it, because of stories of endless wiping. Druids aren't the best at handling spikey damage, and we lack a rapidly repeatable res, which made me feel like I might be dragging down a heroic team.
Now, we did have Scowlin, a shadow priest with us, which took a lot of the pressure off, especially when I also had to keep HoTs up on the bird spirits during the fight. But it was all much easier than I expected. We only had one total wipe - on the end boss - and one partial wipe, when we had an over-generous pull just before Anzu's room. Oh, an a couple of random deaths, when the mage and then the rouge were one-shotted. Frankly, it was a blast, and I look forward to doing it again.
The other confession? Ah, well, when I finished the quest, and got my Essence-Infused Moonstone, I couldn't find it anywhere in my bags. So, eventually, I raised a ticket with a GM, and about half an hour later, one whispered me… to tell me it was on my keychain. D'oh!
