This weekend my alliance guild had two days of 25-man raiding for the first time in ages. Everyone was rewarded for showing up by having Sindragosa roll over and play dead for us. Yay!
It’s funny how big of a difference a full raid group and a solid block of time can make for progression fights. After we killed her, we took a quick look at the Lich King before calling the raid early.
Obligatory shot of me and Arthas:
We only did one attempt (holy tank damage, Batman!). We managed to get through phase 1, then the RL told us to rush Arthas as we transitioned into phase 2, and everyone died a horrible, blistering cold death. That was fun.
After ICC 25, we formed a 10-man hard mode group. We cleared the first wing, then ran into an interesting bug. Deathbringer Saurfang died, and the door to the upper spire wouldn’t open. A soft reset of the instance didn’t fix it, so that put an end to raiding for the night. Regardless of that little annoyance, I’m ecstatic that we had 25 people show up on Saturday and managed to get a new boss kill.
