Lets Go Kill The Ravenlord!

Posted November 11th, 2010 by Miss Mediocre

My posting has been a bit less frequent lately because I haven’t been doing much worth posting about! There is one thing I have been attempting to do daily though that I thought I would share just in case anyone else was like me and had no idea of this change!

I like mounts, and though I don’t go crazy collecting them like I do with pets. I’ve always loved the look of the Ravenlord mount and wanted it, but didn’t know any druids to go into Sethekk Halls with me to summon him. The fact that everyone in the Beta, including myself, was riding around on one was a bit like putting salt on the wound, because I had given up the hope of ever actually getting one. But that hope has been restored!

Recently (in 4.0.1 I believe) they made Anzu (The Raven Lord) a permanent boss in Heroic Sethekk Halls! You no longer need a druid with you to summon him, meaning it’s pretty easy to kill him daily until he drops the mount for you! My Alliance Paladin has horrible gear, and I don’t think she’d be able to solo her way to him, but with two of us it’s easy! I do think if you had good gear, it would be soloable, but it’s never hard to find one or two others who want the mount if you can’t quite do it alone!

Hopefully a few of you weren’t aware of this change either, and can now go and kill him for a shot at the mount! I doubt they’ll change it again Cataclysm, so there should be time for lots of attempts if your luck is as bad as mine, hehe.

    I’ve solo’d that instance up to and including him. (I didn’t bother with the last boss.) My hunter is very well geared, I think the lowest item level equipment he has is 251… but it was pretty easy.

    Hadn’t gotten back yet, though. Been spending my time re-reading some good books, working the AH, and avoiding an ex-gf.

    Oops I’d totally forgotten about that. Thanks MM. I’ll head out to grab that after (if?) I ever get “insane” done.

    Consider this added to my daily to-do list. Thanks for the head’s up!!

    Indy : Which books are you re-reading?? :) I do a lot of re-reading, lol seems like I have my 10 favorite novels, and I just read them over and over.

    Shellicus : You are insane to be doing insane, hehe. I salute you and wish you luck getting it done! :D

    Kammler : Yw :) Hopefully you get it sooner rather than later!

    Right now I’m re-reading the Miles Vorkosigan books by Lois McMaster Bujold. Incredibly great space opera series, with some well done humor. Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books are another series that I re-read a lot (humorous fantasy) — and not long ago I finished re-reading Lord of the Rings (partly as I’d been playing LOTRO recently, what with the move to a F2P type model).

    Not sure what I’ll go for next…

    Indy : I’ve never heard of the first two, but Discworld sounds interesting and along the lines of something I’d like, though the fantasy I read tends to be a little dark with not too much humor, lol. LotR is always a good read, I imagine even more so if you’re playing LotRO! I’ve read Return of the King way more than the others, just because that is the only one I actually own, lol.

    A couple of my re-readers are the Elric of Melnibone series by Michael Moorcock and Stephen R Donaldson’s Thomas Covenant books. Both are pretty dark, but so well written and worth checking out if you like that kind of thing! :)

    I’ve read those as well. The Land is very interesting, but the main character is not someone I want to read about. Give me a Lensman any day, not Covenant.

    I really recommend the Discworld books. I had the good fortune to meet Terry Pratchett at a convention, which is what brought his books to my attention; I’d not read them before. During a panel, in answering a question about his writing, he managed to explain how he wrote one particular gag in such a way, that not only did I laugh, I could not stop laughing. Bearing in mind Twain’s observation that analyzing humor was much like disecting a frog… it could be done, but the frog tends to die in the process — I decided that I absolutely had to read his work.

    Indy : I’m a sucker for antiheroes so I can’t get enough Covenant, lol. I will check out the Discworld books though! I’ve been thinking I should read something new before Cataclysm comes out and takes up all my time :)

    Rincewind, one of the characters who appears in some of the Discworld books (the first ones, and some later ones) is an anti-hero of sorts so you might particularly enjoy those. I think that sort of thing works a lot better with humor, I guess.

    Note that the Discworld books are actually written more as several series that occasionally have some of the characters showing up in the other books…
