I finally got Dreah up to the required iLevel of 272 (without PvP Gear!!!).
I gemmed and enchanted as best as I knew how. I was still sporting an iLevel 333-346 helm, if I remember correctly. But, everything else was where it needed to be. So, off I went to LFR land.
To be honest, in the asshat area; it wasn’t that bad. We didn’t have anyone try to wipe the raid. We did that on our own without anyone trying to help us. I think we wiped 2-3 times before it was all over. Mostly, it was due to a lot of new people running the raid for the first time.
People often dropped group without offering a “why.” But, we made it through with less pain than I expected!
There was one nice hunter who traded a Trinket drop for the Helm drop. The great thing was, a second trinket dropped, he won it, and gave it to me!
I came out with TWO PURPLEZZZZZ!!!!
The negative part of the experience had to do with my computer. I lagged really bad. I’ve almost gotten Zwingli (of Sentinels) to the required iLevel of 272. Once he gets the achievement, I’ll probably not run it again. I’ll go back to focusing on alts and pvp.
For some reason, I really wanted to see LFR at least once before MoP came out.
Now I can say that I’ve done it!
