Sartharion-10 down on an otherwise off nightPosted: May 15, 2012
Last night, only about half of the people showed for our alt raid, so Anacrusa ended up having to sit this week.
Since there wasn’t much else on the agenda, I decided to finally bug my girlfriend to help me defeat Shadron in Obsidian Sanctum. For those who don’t know or remember, Shadron is the one Lieutenant of Sartharion that forces you to go into the Twilight Realm to defeat his acolyte. It’s impossible to solo Shadron – when the Twilight portal opens, you have to send someone in because he’s immune during that time – so, because of that*, I had never tried to solo Sarth before.
*Also because, basically, I’m lazy.
However, last night she helped me with Shad, and then she left to solo Attumen the Huntsman on all of her toons before the lockout reset, and I stayed to attempt Sartharion.
It was very easy.
I was having an off night, and ended up flubbing all over the place – even getting hit by two firewalls because I just wasn’t paying attention – but the fight is simple, and I really overgear it, like I do with Sapphiron-10 and others like it.
After Sarth, I went back to Naxxramas to try Gluth.
The Gluth bug is not working for me. I’m either not doing it right, or it’s been stealth-fixed. I’d be willing to believe that it was just a result of me being stupid, except for the fact that I can’t get the Crypt Guards to despawn for me when I FD on Anub’Rekhan either, and that worked for me several weeks ago. So I’m not sure what to think.
Anyway, I decided to give Gluth a few tries with a legit strategy, but I didn’t do very well. Durendil calls Gluth the second-hardest boss in Naxx, so I guess I shouldn’t feel too badly. However, I do feel badly. I usually move pretty well in raid situations, but I was kiting like a jackass, and I just wasn’t getting much past the first Decimate on my best attempts. So I decided to leave that alone.
Ever have a night where you feel like you completely failed at competently using skills that you normally use without any problems? I’ve had a few of those nights recently, and this was one of them. It’s frustrating on a certain level. For me, letting it go for a couple of days usually does the trick. So I guess I’ll rest a couple of days in order to clear up any residual fatigue from working on Heroic Dragon Soul last Sunday, before I attempt any raid-like activities on the hunter.
I think that – fatigue from bringing my A-game for progression attempts on Sundays – contributes to a lot of my problems on Mondays…
Anyway, on the bright side, I got the glove token from Sarth on my first try, so now I just need the chest, legs, and the complementary pieces (belt, boots), and I’ll be ready to rock the Heroes Cryptstalker look whenever I decide to do so!
I also picked this up, of course:
By the way: the names of Sartharion’s lieutenants – Vesperon, Tenebron, and Shadron – are, in my opinion, three of the cooler names in WoW. Just had to throw that out there.
