OMG! After yesterday, I had a good look at my shadow gear and figured I should fix up all my gems, reforges and enchants (at least the cheap ones) – I even switched my gown which was my old Disc chest as I wanted to see what I could gain from every little tweak. It turns out I gained ~3% haste which should help some.

So with several attempts under my belt, I decided to do a bit of research regarding Ixx, reading a few notes and watching a couple of videos. I noticed one video showed his conal attack from an aerial view which I think helped as it looks like a straight line otherwise. In the end, I stood right underneath his hitbox so I wouldn’t have as far to run when he casts it. It worked like a charm because I one-shot him today! Woot! I can’t believe it.

Other than that, there wasn’t anything unusual except for the fact that you can use your execute abilities right off the bat since Ixx starts the fight at 20% health.

Kamalia and Grinder

I had an extra nice surprise when I looked at my friend list and saw that Kamalia was in the Brawler’s Arena too. I was about to PST her asking how hers was going when I noticed she was on a level 1 toon!?!

Wait a minute!

I did a double-take when I saw she was on Dath! She came to watch me fight!! So I whispered her telling her she’d been sprung and told her not to laugh at me since I’m a healer at heart which is how she feels too – this wasn’t our first meeting together though. :)

I’m not quite sure when Kam turned up but she managed to watch my next fight and cheer me on through a couple of attempts at Crush. You can see her above with my gift to her recently :D


Mazhareen – Looks just like one of my favourite rares Loque’nahak who gets stronger when his health gets to ~25%, so I saved my defensive CDs for then.

Clock'emBeating him meant one thing…

Clock’em, Rock’em, Sock’em!

Woot! I have the … although it took me a minute to find the vendor who sold him. Just look for Paul North (the Quartermaster) opposite the portal. I mean, who wouldn’t want a Jeeves look-alike with boxing gloves? As Leyton Hewitt would say “Come On!” He also sells the potions and Brawler’s Razor Claws at Rank 8.

Rank 4


Crush – This yeti is kind of glitchy for ranged as I found out on my first attempt – he charged one of the corners and healed back to full. To avoid this, you’ll need to get in melee range after he’s been stunned to stop that from happening. So as long as you can avoid getting hit by his charge, you’ll probably find it’s the first real DPS check – at least that I’ve noticed.

Thx Kam for my surprise visit. Hope you enjoyed the show :P

Now to level up my newest addition :D
