Naked Raid #2

Read all about our first foray into Naked Raiding here. If you’re new to this concept, our rules can be found here.

This second time round, it was actually Batinna who prodded me to organise a naked run before the end of the summer and I’m so glad we managed to! She created this masterpiece:


This time, 18 people showed up to support us: from Twitter, to friends of friends, to guildies.


Thank you, every one of you!

See a video of the whole raid below. Be warned – it’s a long one!

Some of us then went on to Firelands afterwards… although we weren’t quite brave enough to face the lava naked!


We’d love to hear if you have taken part in naked raiding before!

Black Temple

Mrs B: BT last night with some guildies. Allusion is a very small guild of regular players. We have been really lucky to get some very loyal people who are active and want to join in events. We like to run the old content for a variety of reasons: namely reminiscing, transmog and gear for twinks. Shameless pug though – we still need raid members (1 tank, 1 healer and 3 or so dps) for casual raid progression!

We took the opportunity to punch Illidan in the face last night, 4 of us altogether. It was rather satisfying! I managed to get a couple of pieces for my hunter transmog set and we had a nice team bonding moment.

I’m still not sure I like BT as a raid, I much prefer the mechanics of the WoTLK raids. More of that later!

Allusion BT

Lorith, 90 mage; Pichouette (me), 90 hunter; Reezy, 70 warrior twink; Faerius, 90 hunter.

Appologies for the lack of a clear picture!

Transmog problems last night

Ok ,so last night I told Mrs B that I needed her to come help me do a few BC raids to get my lock (and her hunter alt) some tier 6 for transmogging. After half hour or so of complaining and moaning about the raids being long and boring, I managed to bring her round to doing them with some chocolate bribary :).

Things were going well at first: blasted through the first part of Black Temple in 30 mins when she got a bit cranky that I hadnt started tea yet. After a wipe on Illidan – we forgot to keep the elementals a part in phase two (noobs!), I had all 3 peices from BT that I needed.

After, we decided to do Battle for Mount Hijal – taking two of the guild’s 70 Twinks along with us to get them any drops we didn’t want. Things were going well until the first boss, when we were too busy talking about something on the radio we forgot to pay attention to Death and Decay. Don’t we get complacent now that we’re 90?! We wiped with the boss still at about 70% lol (noobish I know).

To finish blasted our way through to the 3rd boss, only for the next lot of waves to bug out and leave us with -31 enemies left to kill. Understandably, Mrs B left in a foul mood after having wasted an hour and didn’t even get to face the bosses that dropped the tier items I wanted. Only got some shoulders for the hunter too, so a bit of a wasted trip.

Still, nice to revisit some old content!

UPDATE: went back this morning and completed it – finished the set. Pic below.
