Tonight will begin HOTA’s fourth week of Lower Karazhan. We have the first four bosses on farm, despite switching the group roster from night to night depending on who is available. But we cannot seem to down Curator.
Many people don’t seem to realise that Curator is dps a gear-check. If you can down Curator with the gear you have, you should be ok with the rest of Karazhan. If your group can’t put out enough dps, you will grind against Curator for several weeks until your gear improves to a higher level.
As a result, my raiders are getting discontent. Nobody likes a stop in progression, and especially for the people new to raiding that don’t realise that kills don’t just “automatically” happen, it’s frustrating. Some of the better geared raiders are leaving HOTA to join other guilds that can give them an easier ride through the content. This slows us down even further as we have to find and gear up another person in their place.
It’s starting to feel like we will be bashing our heads against Curator for some time yet. I have nightmares about that menagerie! Oh when will it end…. I guess even when we do get over this hump, we will have to face the noob-test that is Shade of Aran. That will be interesting!
