Part of being able to blog regularly is having a routine. There is a time I sit down and write and another when I review screen shots and so on.
For the Saturday night instance group, I usually sit down Sunday, start the post, sketch out what I will write, noting down some key events or interactions. Later I go through the screen shots, which will usually stir up more memories. (Most of my screen shots are crap, but are often taken simply to capture some small detail that relates to the evenings events.) Eventually I sit down and write the narrative out, insert the screen shots, and schedule the post. (Anything that posts exactly on the hour here was likely scheduled in advance.) Then Thursday morning rolls around, the post goes up, I look at it, gasp in horror at the typos, frantically try to correct them, and eventually let go and return to a stable state.
However, for the last instance group run, I totally forgot to do any of that. Things came up at home, there were other games I wanted to play, other things I wanted to write about (I think I have had two posts a day running all week here, and I have a couple of fresh drafts I still need to finish… next week I guess) and suddenly it was a week and a half later and I found myself thinking, “Didn’t we to Zul’gurub just recently?”
Yes we did.
Now to try and actually blog about it well after the fact.
I do remember the line up… well, I remembered to take a screen shot of it. We were:
- Earlthecat – Level 86 Human Warrior Tank
- Skronk – Level 86 Dwarf Priest Healing
- Bungholio – Level 85 Gnome Warlock DPS
- Alioto – Level 85 Night Elf Druid DPS
- Ula – Level 85 Gnome Mage DPS
And the destination for the evening was the level 85++ instance, Zul’Gurub.
The previous week we did the raid-turned-instance Zul’Aman, which turned out to be a just-about-perfect difficulty run in a sprawling open troll themed environment. Its companion instance, Zul’Gurub, proved to be a worthy follow on.
What I actually remember from the run after the cut.
