So this is Mt. Hyjal

Today was my first trip to hyal in the caverns of time. I wasn’t planning on going, but I logged on to check my mail, and the next thing I know, I’m in a raid group. We downed the first boss after a wipe, and we wiped on the second boss twice and didn’t down him. Nothing healing flavored dropped for me to bid on with my whopping 25 DKP. One of the cloth items fetched 185 dkp or something crazy like that. That’s about a year worth of raiding I think.

The good news for me is that even with my dead time, I was second or third in healing, and first on the second boss (lots of AOE to chain heal). The bad news was that I died a lot on the first boss. I just couldn’t click on the potion fast enough. Two ticks and I was down. One time, I used a mana pot, and got frost bolted right after that. I really need to grind out some battle grounds and get that trinket.

  1. For us non-raiders, what is DKP? And what battleground trinket are you referring to?

  2. DKP is Dragon Kill Points. It’s an archaic term used to keep track of raid participation. The guild I’m in awards 5 points for signing up, 5 points for participating, and some number of points for downing bosses. In later raids, the DKP is used as currency to bid on drops from bosses.
