A raider? Me?

Well, it's been some week for me on both the warrior and rogue.

I finally got into a 10 man raid of ICC with some guildies who have been running it for a while.
7/12 now, and we had to skip the plague area due to the dogs being linked together.  So when we tried pulling 1, the other jumped in as well.  Even if we tried to drag the first down the stairs and away, the 2nd just jumped on us.  So after 3 or 4 attempts in there, we gave up and carried on into the next wing.

here is a screenie for you

I managed 3 upgrades on this run also they were
Saurfangs Cold-forged Band
and also the honored ring of the ashen peoples. 

The next time I was on, I managed to get into a For the Alliance run, I've always wanted to do one for these so I could get rid of my black elekk

I am successful :)  so a black war bear for running around PvP'ing on

Finally our weekly raid is Sarth so I managed to join a group for this ( I got the patchwork one for the previous weekly, I only started playing last March/April, so never been through Naxx)

everyone in the raid died, that last person 1 sec after downing the boss

Here is a random shot of my UI during the ICC raid

Finally onto the rogue and what he's been upto this week.
Mostly I was just running around in WSG to get up to level 20 and try to get a couple of achievements. One of which was Ironman, the other was wrecking ball.  Both achieves that I haven't managed to get on Rynaa

As you can see I managed to get 1 of the 2

And then the weird one, was in another WSG and then as soon as the flags were available, a warlock grabbed it and then it was capped, all before I could run out of the tunnel (with the speed boost)
As you can see from the screenshot, it was all over in 3 mins, so I'm not sure what they were doing, but it is a huge bug in my opinion

Looking forward to running ICC 10 again this Friday, and making it a permanent commitment for me.

everyone out there have fun

PvP, it's the way for me

Well, Putrah is now a level 18 (and a half) rogue, who gained the last 2 levels almost exclusively through the BG system.
I've always been a keen PvP player, however I never really enjoyed Warsong Gulch (WSG) until now.
After entering in at level 16 and seeing the amount of xp you can gain in 1 winning battle (660xp alone for having the flag capped, I'm totally hooked onto using this to level through the medium to late stages of each bracket.

Here are the achievements that I managed to get yesterday

Also a couple of random pics of Putrah as he is now
