Another CoT Durnhold run

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 7:08 am

A guild run! My first “proper” guild run I think.

We didn’t complete the instance despite having 3 70’s and 2 69’s. I think the group makeup contributed significantly, life we had: two healers, two Protection specced warriors and a warlock. Everything was just taking too long to kill so we got overwhelmed by adds in the final fight. I’ve commented on this sort of thing before where healers have problems completing timed events.

General inexperience was almost certainly part of the reason for failure – I know I’m not used to being DPS in an instance even though somehow I topped the damage meters.

Once again I didn’t manage to turn in the first quest to Thrall. I got the window open on him and waited for the others when suddenly the escort phase started. I’ve no idea whether some-one else started it, or it’s just on a timer, or what.

Even though we didn’t complete I didn’t feel particularly bad, there didn’t seem to be any(much) rancor and nothing that bothered me, apart from getting the blame for starting the Thrall event that is. For me this dungeon feels as much fun as the Scarlet Monastery, dunno why.

For what it’s worth the Wow Web Stats are temporarily up at

I’m currently doing the Azeroth Children’s Week quests, and I’ve just realized I can do the Outland version which should significantly boost my Lower City reputation. As a step on the Outland’s children’s week quest I have to go to the Caverns of Time again so that will place me nicely for another run. Let’s hope I manage to complete that damn quest this time!
