Last week I posted on Unholy Spec for DPS since 3.3 and stated that if you have no ICC 10 man loot (or above) then you and I were in the same boat. Within hours I was made a total fraud. Thanks to Verde I was invited to a guild run of The Lower Spire and would you believe it, Lord Marrowgar dropped this beauty for me.
To say I am a lucky girl is a bit of an understatement. I was a guest at the raid, but as the only DPS plate wearer I was granted the loot. Generousity gone mad some may say? I say possibly, but I'm grateful and I didn't roll before being informed I could. So lucky me.
I figured since I'd now got some loot, and been through a bit of ICC (up to the Gunship Battle) I'd pontificate on the experience, but truth be told I was too busy hitting stuff, running out of/away from fire and concentrating on jumping/landing on the boat that I wasn't paying much attention to anything else. If you want loot tables try the usual suspects, there are people out there who've already done it far better than I can.
What I will say is, for those who haven't ventured into ICC yet, Lord Marrowgar is the first boss in The Lower Spire. The best piece of advice I heard about this chap was "He looks far more intimidating than he is". He's a big boney whirling dervish who is all flap and no function. Stay out the fire, hit down the spikes and let the tanks get aggro after each Bone Storm cycle and you should be fine.
Lady Deathwhisper was a heap of fun. Namely because our esteemed hunter pushed the wrong button and pulled her whilst the other guys were leading me through the strat. So we began and I did my best. And you know what, we one shotted her! Not bad! I'd mentioned to the guys that with the spell/physical damage make up of a DK, and being in unholy spec, I was probably going to be about as much use as a chocolate teapot but as the end result shows, it didn't seem to matter. Good Times.
We didn't have time to get to Saurfang that night, but we did do the gunship battle. I did think I was going to jump and land where the tank was, or worse jump and miss. This meant I was a little slow getting my jump going. I also was so focussed on whacking the adds on the ally ship that on the first go I didn't hear "Bring out the Battle Mage". Second time round it was great fun! Like the Flame Leviathan fight I love the different dynamic that this fight offers to the game and it makes me wonder how the horde/alliance "peace pact" will hold out. Which we know it won't. I can't ever see Garrosh and Varian sitting down to a cup of tea and a slice of cake.
