drop rate smrop rate

After 2 days of battling the 1st Ulduar boss (the instance server) we finally managed to get IN the damned zone with 20-some. Flame Leviathan was a blast and, like most guilds, dropped it on our first run. For the last couple hours of the day today the leadership and I had been discussing what […]

achievements that don’t suck

It capped off an excessively long day of driving back from South Dakota (more on that later) and then driving back to Madison from my […]
