Tonight I decided on an experiment. I’m going to queue for the Molten Core LFR and list my accomplishments through it, or lack thereof. As a reminder, I’m a Feral Druid, and all times are Mountain Standard Time (MST) – the only time zone that matters.
8:12 pm: queued for LFR, approximate wait time 9 minutes.
8:13: queue is ready, looks like a fresh run. Huge sigh to try and get ready for what is ahead.
8:13: zone in, first pull is already under way.
8:17: first tank drops group.
8:19: first complaints in chat of the fact that it’s a fresh run.
8:28: first core hound pack pulled.
8:29: Lucifron engaged.
8:31: Lucifron killed.
8:33: core hound pack respawn.
8:35: Magmadar engaged.
8:36: Magmadar killed, with no fears. Creepy.
8:45: Gehennas engaged.
8:47: Gehennas killed.
8:56: Garr engaged.
8:58: Garr killed.
9:02: Baron Geddon engaged, along with a mob pack.
9:04: first wipe of the night. I am shocked and amazed.
9:07: Baron Geddon engaged.
9:10: Baron Geddon killed.
9:13: first non-boss death. Lava Elemental aggroed me, tanks were busy.

9:17: Shazzrah killed, with 11 people left alive.
9:31: Sulfuron Harbinger engaged.
9:35: Sulfuron Harbinger killed.
9:39: Golemagg ninja aggroed by a stupid mage.
9:41: second wipe of the night.
9:43: Golemagg pulled by a rogue randomly dropping from above him.
9:44: third wipe of the night.
9:48: Golemagg pulled properly.
9:51: Golemagg killed.
9:54: Majordomo Executus engaged.
9:57: Majordomo Executus defeated.
10:02: Ragnaros summoned.
10:07: Ragnaros defeated. Hatespark the Tiny collected, huzzah!
As a whole, I am actually very happy with how it all went. the group that I ended up getting was very organized – the tanks marked the targets, healers were fantastic, and DPS did an excellent job. The only wipes we had were from a few people being stupid, and not the raid as a whole failing.
This was my third time trying to complete this, and I am very glad that I never have to do it again.
