It seems to have taken me ages to complete Secrets of the First Empire. To be fair I wasnt running every raid finder that could drop the Ssecrets of the Empire every week so I suppose it was partially my own fault. And then last week I got my 20th. I was really excited about moving on and catching up with a guildie who had jumped slightly ahead of me. Until I realised I still wasnt exalted with the Black Prince and needed to finish I Need a Champion.
Last night I was lucky enough to find a group farming rep on the Isle of Thunder last night and soon hit exalted. Finally I felt like I was making progress again. I was so keen to get into the solo scenario The Thunder Forge that I didn't repair before going in... I was doomed!
I was ok right up until the final bit where you work with the Celestial Defender to kill the Sha Amalgamation. I died and my bow was broken, tried again, died and this time it was completely smashed. I had to leave th instance, repair and start over again. The lesson here being that repairing before entering is wise!!
I eventually managed to defeat the Sha Amalgamation. It was tricky - the evil stuff that falls from the sky was proving to be a pain. I know it should have been easier for me as a hunter but I just wasnt learning particuarly fast it seems.
Fortunately stabbing Nalak for Spirit of the Storm Lord was fairly simple. I used Feign Death to drop my aggro, got up and ran away from the creepy add thing. And I am now on to Echoes of the Titans collecting 12 Titan Runestones. Hopefully it in a few weeks I should have my Epic Cape and be on the road to getting my Legendary one!
