Noth - The Loot Concealer

Ever get out of the habit of doing something, and then it kind of just stops entering your thought process? Yeah, not sure how it happened with the blog, but here I am writing again... back in the though process. At any rate...

This week, out guild headed in to Heroic Naxx to slay a few bad guys. To skip the details and get straight to the point, we killed Noth the Plaguebringer. For those that don't know the fight, he basically teleports up to his balcony every 90-180 seconds (90 the first time, 110 the second, and then 180 all subsequent times).

Well... again for brevity, he died up on the balcony. It's just a bit out of range to loot from down below. There's a couple boxes stacked below that somebody joked you could stand on top of and loot him, which didn't work.

So, we first opened a ticket. Then we checked maps to figure out how else we could get up there. We cleared all the way to the next boss, and then had to take this off the beaten path way to get up to the balcony. Once there, we didn't get the loot cursor on the mouse like you do when you can loot something, but we did get our loot. Had to waste a ton of time heading on over there though.

At any rate, this instance has basically been around for like 2 and a half years now. You'd think they would have fixed this bug feature by now. /sigh Oh well... at least we got our loot.
