Northrend Timewalking - Disc Priest

Had the most awesome experience last night running Northrend dungeons. I ran with a pug, which appeared to be 4 guildies (tank + 3 DPS) and me.

During the night, we ran through 4 different dungeons (1 of them twice). Out of all 4, we only had one full wipe and a 2-3 deaths.

  • Ahn'kahet - My least favorite of all the TW dungeons. Spiders that fear causing cascading pulls, large room with groups of wandering mobs (before Jedoga) that also cause cascading pulls.
  • Pit of Saron - Ran this one twice. Lots of wandering mobs in starting area, but biggest complaint was there is a mob that causes a stun. I'd get hit by this probably each fight. The first boss, likes to 'freeze' players so lots of dispels. 
  • The Nexus - Only real issue is the first boss (collection of Alliance frozen in mage ice blocks), is easy for tank to pull entire room. 
  • Utgarde Pinnacle - Our full wipe was in this dungeon. The trash right before King Ymiron. Tank pulled one too many of the groups and with LOS issues couldn't heal effectively. 
No drake dropped (that I saw), but I did get a two upgrades; healing cape and dps belt. The Iron Fleet Treasure Chest rewarded me a shiny DPS helm! 

My one suggestion for TW dungeons... Have all the TW token vendors appear each event cycle. There are upgrades that both my druid and priest could use, but they are sold from the other vendors.. cupri (possibly mid February, a full month away?)

  1. I ran many many Northrend TW this weekend. I have a lot of characters, so I get to see some spectrum of quality of players. When I go into Pit of Saron and the tank is level 82, I knew I'm in for a world of hurt, and we didn't get through the first boss.

    Now, when I run as a tank, the group did fine, albeit, I was control the flow and tell the rest of the group what to watch out of.

    My druid did get enough TW badges to buy the Northrend badge mount. Next time TBC TW event comes out I'll have enough badge to buy that mount as well.
