Bloody hell this fight

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.

Die, you stupid troll, die

Gara’jal heroic down.

Oh. My. God.

So proud of everybody in our guild, you have no idea. This fight is such a tight DPS race, especially in 10-man. Likely to get much, much easier with gear, but right now we don’t have the gear… so it was very, very, very tight. How tight? That yell he’s doing in the screenshot is his berserk mechanic, a spell that instantly wipes the raid. He started casting it and fell over a half second later.

Dropped Sollerets of Spirit Splitting (yay!) and Circuit of the Frail Soul.

Realm first! And according to WoWProgress right now, world 30th 10-man, 60th overall. Unsurprisingly, we’ve gone from being the underdog guild nobody really cared about to the guild everybody’s itching to join.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeee. *bounces*

Four Kings dethroned

(Loot: Mindshard Drape and Shoulderguards of the Unflanked. Did I mention I bought ilvl476 epic shoulders for 50k off the AH? Yeah. Welcome to the life of a progression raider, where every upgrade matters and you can buy something only to replace it a week later.)

And just for the record, Elegon trash can go die in a fire.
