The Troublemakers

Bringing a Metric Carp Ton of fun to Sunday & Monday nights

We are a casual Alliance raid team on the Aerie Peak server and part of the Convert to Raid guild. We are looking to make progression in normal and heroic raids for World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth.

Burninating the Blast Furnace!

*It puts the lotion on its skin* much fire! *shudders*

*It puts more lotion on its skin*

It's been awhile since our last update as the inevitable summer boss begins to take its toll on raid teams. We've had some bumps along the road since our Maidens kill and a few roster change ups. It took us a few weeks to get back on track and the result this week was beyond AWESOME!

Day one of raid week gave us a new Troublemaker record of 8 of 10 Blackrock Foundry bosses down in a single night (3 hours). The majority of which were one-shots. A two-shot on Maidens felt so, so good after all of our struggles and an awesome way to end the night. The team was feeling solid again.

Day two had us pitted against a new nemesis...The Blast Furnace. Videos we studied. Strats were discussed. Attempts were made. Changes were made AND new strats were discussed. Phase one flew by! Phase two was chaos. Slowly we tamed the chaos. One elementalist down...two...wipe! Rinse and repeat until THREE went down! Suddenly there is hope. WIPE! The clock is ticking and the end of raid night is close. We have time for one more attempt.

Let's do this...

One elementalist down!


THREE and we are all alive!

Holy crap we are going to get FOUR!

Keep calm and BURNINATE!

TROGDOR!!!!  The Blast Furnace goes down!

Three hours and 10 wipes never felt so good! I'm proud of what we accomplished as a team this week. It was some amazing work to witness and the reason we raid.

Ahhhh...much better.

This week in Troublemakers raiding news brings us birthday wishes to Ixsander & Bluette, without whom the Troublemakers probably would not exist. Thanks for setting this group of crazies along their path. *huggles*

We tried to grant Ixsander's birthday wish of downing the Impregnator...uh, I mean, Imperator Mar'gok, so back to Highmaul we went for day one. The smart thing would have been to attempt to down him on normal. We did not do the smart thing. We had a heroic lockout and thought...when in Rome. Let's just say, we were rusty, and even with our Foundry upgrades it felt as if nothing had changed since our last visit. Yeah, we should have done normal. Sigh...

All was not lost, however, it was good coordination practice even if we couldn't get down the birthday boy's request. Note to self: we should have done normal.

Day two, we were on FIRE, literally and figuratively. We became the mighty underdogs! After our disappointing start on that darn Impregnator, we turned it around and cranked out a record FIVE Blackrock Foundry bosses in one (short) night! GO TEAM! Now THAT's what I'm talking about! We one shot almost all of our farm bosses (Beastlord, Hans & Franz, Flamebender, and Gruul) AND got down a new progression boss for us...Operator Thogar!

WOO WOO! CHUGGA CHUGGA CHUGGA! WOO WOO ! *plays with her train set*



It felt good, and was an awesome way to end our raiding week. Shout out of the week goes to Mephisto, no, Mephistopheles, no, Mephistopls...SONNUVA *mumbles* Stupid names with alt charaters...welcome death knight MEMPHIS (as we have now dubbed thee)! May all your mushrooms be colorful and please don't stare at your feet during raid time. Off hours only.

Things we learned: It's good to know who the designated "straight men/women" are in your raid team. Ya know, just in case something goes sideways. *wink*
