Vox no longer arms the weapon, so it never procs but it's still in the loot table. It was hotfixed the day after the last patch. They said they should be "fixing" all issues involved with the MW next patch, but I'm guessing that'll be post Kunark release.
I'm using my Dad's druid to PL some as well. If i'm on, (Stacatto - Bard or Muligan - SK) let me know. My Dad's Druid is Xolar. He typically plays the Euro time because he's retired and for some reason goes to bed early and wakes up early. When I retire, I don't want to know anything before 9:30 am exists. lol. My hope is to do some more work tonight. I'll join the foh channel to help out. My bard is just lvl 7 I think so I may be a little behind other's alts.
It's pretty easy to take a small group in. Necros and enchanters can solo a good portion of it. We were single grouping it a week or so after it opened (mostly because it was all down for the first week)
You could always grab a few friends and make your own raid instance each week.
I'm not sure how the fear break in works with an instance group. Hate instance zone in is safe and super easy to set up. I've been clearing it out the past few weeks with some folks and it's been pretty enjoyable.
Breaking into fear is super easy. All you do is send in a monk and have them train away all the entrance shit while the rest of the group zones in and runs to safe wall. Then it's ezpz as long as you're able to handle 2-3 mob pulls.
