BFD - no, not the Deal, the instance....

Last night, the Purple Poxers paid a visit to Blackfathom Deeps. The mobs ranged from level 22 - 24, and we started at 23 and ended at 24 (we all dinged 25 from turning in quests). In short, we drank their beer, soiled the carpet, and (someone - Madja!) clogged up the facilities....She really needs to lay off the [Mutton Chop] binging.

I want to apologize for the lack of pictures; I took some, but forgot to send them to work where I'm posting this from. If you're lucky, I'll add them when I get home...lol.

BRD is interesting in that it has a large room near the beginning that has several points of interest in it. A full clear is not required, and most of the turtle mobs are even non-aggressive. As I'm writing this I realize that I won't be able to write the description the way I want due to a lack of research material here at work. So, I guess I'll just say, look at the Atlas map for the things to do in this room.

After the big room, the instance turns linear until the second big room. Just like the first big room, the second big room does not require a full clear. However, remember that there are two points of interest in the water. I found myself looking at the Atlas map quite a bit during this run because I was somewhat unfamiliar with the instance.

For our group, this instance was somewhat of a joke. We, again, had no wipes or deaths. We did get a slew of murlocs at one point and did a 5/6 pull on some cultists, but Harisan held aggro, I kept her healed and the DPS burned down the kill order. Someone remarked that we needed a bigger challenge..lol.

All of the bosses went down just like any other mob. Maybe I'm just used to Outlands bosses that have special abilities and seem to be more than just another level XX elite. Of course, it may also just be the lower level dungeons that have very simple fights, although, Arugal has some tricks up his sleeves...

So, next week is Razorfen Kraul. I'm guessing that we'll continue on to the next instance every week until we start wiping or we can't equip the loot for another 5 levels...lol. It seems that between our great teamwork and our Phat Lewtz, we've had a really easy time with the last couple of instances. It also looks like RFK and Gnomer are around the same level, so we may be spending time in both - most of us have no desire to do Gnomer, but it might be fun with our group. I think we've also agreed to doing it once just for posterity and completeness.

I do believe I'll be making a list of our progress through the instances of WoW. I just have to figure out how to make that nifty strikethrough text....

You can use the < strike > tag to put a line through text. Just don't forget to close it, like I did the other day! :-D

Oh, without the spaces, of course.

Oh, nevermind. After posting, I see that you figured it out. Heh.

Lol, I just typed it in Word, then copied and pasted it...haha.
