At Least It's Not a PUG

I'm going to Naxx-25 on Sunday. It'll likely be the first time I clear out the gorram instance on heroic. Hooray for not having to PUG it! Yea, yea, I know - months behind. It's tough to find 25-man raids when you have classes during normal raiding hours.

What's the catch?

I gotta tank it.

My poor, poor Death's Bite will have to wait a little longer before it gets to chop some zombie heads. I think it's getting a little rusty from under-use, I've been tanking so much lately.

Oh well, at least I get me some badges. Plus, the other tanks are fairly well geared, so I think I can snag some non-set tanking upgrades pretty easily. This, despite the fact that I just bought a pair of Inexorable Sabatons to make sure my tanking set was respectable.

And I almost forgot! The run is going to be a 20-man, the guild is trying to get the main raiders the undermanned Naxx achievement, so this is the 2nd Naxx-25 run they're doing this week. That's why I gotta tank - the regular tanks are spread across two raids.

Fun times.

I'm actually not a huge fan of the Inexorable Sabatons, but I'm also not a huge fan of the Blacksmithed boots either.

Having said that, unless you got the Tanking boots off of Noth in Naxx10, Inexorable is likely the best you can have at this point.

Whew, good luck man! I bet 20 man guild will be as good or better then 25 man pug. Let us know how often you wipe :)

Have fun in there! My Naxx group did 20-man last week. The funny thing is that although we wiped far more than usual, none of the wipes had anything to do with having 5 fewer players; they had to do mainly with people messing up encounters that are usually automatic in this group - Raszuvious and 4 Horsemen.

One funny side-effect is that we had fewer people to mess up the Heigan dance or Thaddius' polarity, so we got those achievements as well.

Good luck!

So how did the raid go, it's actually real intensive on the healers I found when completing the 20man naxx, at the moment i'm trying to pull off the 8man malygos
