    Is it just me or does cider have a female character as well... something seems off when he posts videos sometimes. The character doesn't look the same.

    I watched this vid yesterday and it inspired me to give it a serious try. After 4 runs, I had a ridiculous stroke of luck and got the mount~



    I heard the drop rate was raised since patch 3.0.2 or something. Checked wowhead and it's 1%, up from .1%, apparently. I don't have any hard proof on this.

    Great vid.. but for a second I thought it was for the The Culling of Stratholme mount run

    Haven't had a chance to really try a speed run for that, but if there's any advice (or video hint hint nudge nudge) I'd like to hear/see it.

    Just wondering how you got your UI to post the damage on the sides of your toon and not over the mobs. Addon or interface? Also saw it in the Naxx video.....looks like a lot let clutter.

    Night Elf's, Shadowmeld is your friend.

    Was doing this earlier and running from one Zig to the other, then using shadowmeld to get me out of combat

    Long time watcher first time poster. On a side note, I love your work Ciderhelm.

    The drop rate did indeed increase to a flat 1% drop rate now. I got lucky and got it on my 17th kill.

    I would like to suggest another way of exiting the instance. After you kill Baron Rivendare you can invite a friend/guildy to your party. When they're in your party, type in the command "/camp". It'll log you out, when you log back in you'll be in front of the instance with it already being rested. It may seem a bit out of the way for your friend/guildy but it sure beats running back :P.

This slows me down and seems unnecessary. She's usually not close enough to charge-break the webs and also my chances of aggroing more mobs by charging into their direction go up.
    Free Action Potion - she won't be able to web you for 30 sec. Should be able to DPS her down in that time. I farmed it for the Valor Legs, not sure why.

    Enjoy!

    I'd suggest using the service door for quicker runs. At 80 most of the mobs shouldn't agro if you are at least a little careful with your running paths. Make sure you are careful of those speedy gargoyles, they sneak up on you pretty good. The run I did last night, first time I've been in there since 70, took about 15-20 minutes.

    Cool but I still need the Runecloth for Darnassus, Gnomer, and Exodar rep so speed runs meh. I need to kill everything
    ive found that scholo is just as good for this if not better. since theres more mobs that will drop RC versus strat. plus, if you still have the one trinket that shows the ghosts of caer darrow, theres a repair vendor right outside you can visit when your bags get full and you need to repair. i only do strat for compeleting old quests and trying to get the horse.

    every time I run this I get a debuff that reduces healing by 100% and deals damage every few seconds eventually killing me. Anyone know how to avoid this?

    Don't go anywhere near the first 3 AOE packs in the instance (the ones I avoid at the beginning of this). They are the only groups that can apply the debuff.

    You should've somehow included that once you got the Key to the city you can go in from the back entrance. That way people only have to deal with that debuff only once anyways.
