We got Lady Vashj down last night which was a guild first for my new guild. While this isn’t my first kill of her it was good to re-experience the learning curves a guild must endure with the encounter and being able to overcome various issues to get her down. We had been trying for about 3 days in total but some of those nights was spent clearing the bosses before her so the attempts weren’t really all that solid. Last night we went in with an abnormal strategy which actually worked quite well. In particular it was the Strider Kiting strat that was thrown out the window and instead we had the striders tanked in one spot. Striders went down very quickly, organization was superb, communication over vent was excellent. The attempt that netted us the kill was really quite impressive.
As I had suspected that we would down Vashj I was busy recording each attempt using the built in recording that is available in the native World of Warcraft Mac client. As a bit of a stuff around I thought I’d whip something up in iMovie which I conveniently have installed on my Macbook Pro. In no time at all I had a video put together. This is my very first attempt at an in game video so it is really dodgy but I enjoyed making it and will probably do more down the track to get my experience up and obviously try to get better at them. Unfortunately I wasn’t aware of how severe the video and audio degradation is when something is uploaded to youtube so the resulting youtube vid is really *really* shit when compared with the movie file that I uploaded.
