UI Development

The Ui is coming along ok, i need to tweak the order of decursive a bit into maybe 2 rows of 12 and 13, or 3 rows of 10, 10 and 5. Buffwatch is ok, but pally power has been recommended to me by a new member of the guild which i might try out. Hopefully it wont suck up too much memory.

Other than that, i cant really complain about the UI, other than adding Clique back into the addons folder.

HKM down

I was so so loooking forward to this raid, working together with Realm. During the week speaking to Morgim and Baconburger, i was excited for TDD's future in 25 man raiding, purely as both guilds, on paper seemed right for each other to raid. I was so proud of both guilds to be able to come together and work a a seemless team, wipe after wipe and still maintain a great attitude.

It was both a shock and an expectation that we did get HKM down. We had made good progress with the pull, the adds (killing one by one) working to the boss himself. And when he went down, it was a testiment to all individuals skill and presence of mind to stay with it, and get the job done. There is great talent across both guilds, and it looks to be a great future ahead of us both for both guilds. Its very exciting!

The after raid chat with Realm was great, Realm sounded very pleased and excited also about the co-operation raid setup, we worked out some final details like raid sign up's and organisation. So the next raid should be alot more smoother.

Great humour, big smiles, and now im always going to be looking forward to Thursday's

Magister's Terrace

At first i though this instance was a royal pain in the arse. But go in there with at the very least 1 mage and 1 rogue and a hunter, and your laughing.
Its very class group focused on CC. Pulling groups of 5 and managing to control all of them until the job is done, then move onto the next. And its very individual skill based also, not sure of your class? your fired, especially in a PuG group on Khadgar.
First boss, and last boss are fine to do once you know whats happening, in heroic mode, the last boss hit your spell reflect if your a warrior, or Bubble if your a paladin when the boss bubbles himself and starts casting his 40k pyroblast.

I did manage to get a new trinket Commendation of Kael'thas, after all that work engineering a rocket launcher, all that work and money seems in vain. 57 Stamina and a 35% health dodge bonus of 8%. So its now worth keeping the talent of 30% damage reduction at 35% health...

Im after the Cudgel of Consecration, this has got to be the only upgrade from my blue crystalforged sword for more spell damage, and equal stamina with a +15 blue gem.
I also managed to win Netherforce Chestplate which i gemed up with agility and stam gems. I will try that out after getting the Cudgel, because taking off the PVP chest i drop 20 SD, so you can see how much benefit the crudel will be, for me to spend enchants and gear adjusting elsewhere, not worrying about threat.

Hopefully i will be able to get the T4 Helmet, and dump engineering shortly. And get a gathering skill so i can make some matt grinding money, or even turn herbalist

Total health with the PVP chest is 14.1K unbuffed.

Battle of Chest Armour

Panzar'Thar Breastplate
Chestguard of the Stoic Guardian
75 Badges
Chestplate of Stoicism
100 Badges

For a paladin we want (or I want) the backup of knowing i have some type of spell damage added to my gear to fall back on, (without always having to bring wizard Oil as a guarantee of threat). 3 Gems slots in the Stoic Guardian, allows the flexability to add agility and stamina gems outside of the one blue socket, i'd have to check on that, but the 100 badges chest piece is very warrior biased, and only has 1 gem socket. I dont feel overly excited about the stats either, where you could gem up the stoic guardian a little close to it, the main thing missing is +35 spell damage. Nightbanes chest piece would be a good temp work around until i managed to get the stoic guardian.
