It was Saturday night and we were all online and in-game extra early. The usual start time is 9pm. A couple weeks back we all showed up at a little after 8pm. This time we seemed to have a group nearly ready to go at about a quarter after 7pm.
It isn’t unusual to find Earl or I or Skronk on that far in advance, but when Bung showed up we knew we were off to an early start. Ula was rousted out of whatever she was up to and got into the game, giving us the whole team.
- Earlthecat – Level 82 Human Warrior Tank
- Skronk – Level 82 Dwarf Priest Healing
- Bungholio – Level 82 Gnome Warlock DPS
- Alioto – Level 82 Night Elf Druid DPS
- Ula – Level 82 Gnome Mage DPS
From there we figured we ought to head straight into our first Cataclysm instance, the Throne of Tides in Vashj’ir.
In order to avoid anybody feeling the ill effects of motion sickness from the sometimes disorienting zone of Vashj’ir, Skronk and I swam out to the great whirlpool at the bottom of the abyssal something or other and went on through to the other side.
There we were able to use the summoning stone to get everybody together.
Then it was just a matter of getting everybody pointed in the right direction and through the portal and into the instance.
More after the cut because… well… the same stuff I say every time.
