I’ll start posting more content than just “lookit, we killed this” soon, I promise, but…
Heroic Spirit Kings down! Realm first as usual by now – the only other guild who had a Heroic Gara’jal kill before this reset (and therefore had enough wipes on this to have a shot at killing it) isn’t raiding tomorrow, and chose to kill it normal mode and clear the rest of the instance about one hour before we got our kill. World 88th kill overall according to WoWProgress, and 51st 10-man, which puts us at world 81st overall and 42nd 10-man. Not bad at all.
Extremely chaotic fight and took quite some perfecting of the strategy, including continuous wiping pretty much on the pull, Method-style, when we got saddled with a less-than-ideal order (the order on our kill, for the record, was Qiang – Subetai – Meng – Zian). It didn’t help that we lost a DPS to a guild-hop (to a worse guild…) mid-progression, but hey, clearly didn’t need him anyway.
Loot was Steelskin, Qiang’s Impervious Shield (which makes me the current best-geared warrior on the server) and Girdle of Delirious Visions (which went for offspec, but hey, better than a disenchant).
Elegon next! From the handful of pulls we did tonight before raid end he doesn’t seem too hard, so we might even kill it before reset – we’ll see.
