Darkhoof’s got new boots. Another great run into MC.
Our Wednesday Night raid into MC was another good one. Heck, they’re all good.
Well, we did aggro a Surger and some Fire Imps, and then aggro’d some Fire Giants and a Core Hound, but when we had the bosses in our sights, Lucifron and Magmadar, they went down first tries.
Loot for Darkhoof this run was a pair of Earthfury Boots. I now have the head, shoulders, and foot pieces of the Earthfury set. Not only looking pretty cool, all molten lava flowing between the rock and metal, they provide a +10 yard range on my totems. I am still wearing 3 pieces of the Elementals set and that’s getting me +50 armor still. And otherwise my gear is giving me +218 Healing. (And, yes, I’m still the top healer on the raid.
For anyone first raiding Molten Core, it so much more intense than anything else you’ve encountered. When UBRS to Drakkisith gets easy, Molten Core’s first mobs, the so-called “trash mobs”, will give you a butt whooping you won’t soon forget. And then there’s the actual bosses.
But it all gets easy. Every boss has a weakness, every battle a strategy. Every wipe is just one more step in the direction of victory. And, Good Lord, the epics sure are sweet.
