I love Karazhan. It was my first raid instance in my first raiding guild. I had just being accepted on a trial,  and was doing dailies out on the island when I got a whisper from one of the officers “hey wanna come Kara? We need one more ranged”. I was horrified, my hands were ice-cold and heart beating. What if I messed up? What if I got kicked from guild for lack of dps? However, I joined and had so much fun, one of the best WoW nights ever. Back then Kara was still pretty hard stuff, so we cleared half place and everyone were really pleased about that. I got two new weapons and my first tier piece. Also, the officer whispered me afterwards and said I had done a great job, I know it might sound ridiculous, but I felt really proud and happy.

Later on, with higher level gear, we arranged “Kara Friday drunk runs”, where we pulled pretty much room by room and cleared the place in some hours, while people got drunker and Vent conversations got funnier. Good times.

No armor allowed, at least none with stats on


Remember how hard this used to hit?

I still try to go there every once in a while, just for the first boss to see if he drops his mount. No luck so far. However, the other day we had a cancelled raid and decided to arrange a Kara nude run, meaning you have to start naked, with no armor or weapons, and you can only equip what drops in there. I have never heard so much excitement over green loot, “oooomg! Leather bracers +10 spirit, GIEF!”, and the epics from the bosses were mostly welcomed. Great fun, and can be recommended on a  raid-free night 😀

Result: gray bracers, green shoes and gloves and epic, shiny mace!



…the Halloween event! Even though I got the hallowed title yeaaaars ago, I’m still excited. Well at least a little bit. You see, the Headless Horseman’s mount happens to be on my Mount Wish List (#4, to be more exact), and I am 100 % certain I will be a genuinely happier person with this mount. World will seem brighter, sun will shine, I will stop spending money on stuff I don’t need and will go to bed earlier. For sure. /Nod.

Torje showing off

At least this year, just like recent events, you can use the dungeon finder for it and you get a goodie bag once a day. If there’s no mount there, good luck next day, no need to keep trying. Of course half of Bronzebeard don’t know this so they keep queuing and queuing for nothing but lousy rings and go bananas when they get the “you’ve entered too many instances” thing.

I didn’t even see it drop last year, or the year before that. The only time it dropped was when I declined an invite because I was busy eating noodles! Argh. Still blaming my brother who didn’t want to wait. I am glad it went to Torje though, he has used it well afterwards.

Last year the excitement quickly turned into pure annoyance, I did the damn thing at least 30 times. Each day. For two weeks. That’s 420 times, and we all know Scarlet Monastery graveyard is NOT 420- worthy. Actually went a bit loco at that time now that I think about it, cause I caught myself shouting “Heres my body fit and pure! Now your blackened souls I’ll cure!” while showering. To myself. Out load. That’s what he yells, the headless horseman. Or was is horseless headman? We have two weeks to find out, starting now. For those else who want it ( who doesn’t want a horse with flaming feet anyway??), good luck!
