Still Trying to Get All Our Tier ll Armor

While Vmalice and I have found it very difficult to get into Burning Lands and successfully complete a quest, we have been biding our time in the OverThere acquiring our tier ll armor and taking down all the bosses.

It is quite amazing that a group of six level 110 peeps still manage to wipe out even in this zone, but we continually come back for more.  We also find SkyFire to be difficult as well as the drakes manage to see through our invisibility and since they attack from above, they can be quite surprising.

Getting ready for the release of the 20th anniversary quests and the fun quests that go along with that.
