So it’s the end of the first week of raiding in my new guild.
Well strictly speaking its not my new guild as everyone in it are people from my old guild and some raiders from my old guild also join us. Also my alt is still in my old guild. Complicated no? Better to think of us as alternative reality version of AT being slimmer.
Anyway back on track so in the first week of hard try’s we have been blasting through the ten man hard modes.
Concentrating on Ulduar hard modes as to be honest these are a lot more interesting than TOC hard modes (and though I hate to say it at least there is some trash to deal with). TOC is on the radar but with limited time we decided to milk TOC normal for its badges and then push on into Ulduar hard modes with the time we have.
For the first week we have kicked Thoradim’s ass on hard mode to get http://www.wowhead.com/?achievement=3178, Hordir has lost his rare catch for http://www.wowhead.com/?achievement=3182 , Steelbreaker has been broken for http://www.wowhead.com/?achievement=2941 and we have knocked on wood two times (we tried three and were getting there but time was marching on and we decided to show a couple of raiders Mimeron as they had never seen the full fight).
We also decided to do a few of the TOC achievements so the twin worms went down together for http://www.wowhead.com/?achievement=3936 and a couple of lucky people in the raid got to play with the twin mistresses for the Lord Jaraxus achievement http://www.wowhead.com/?achievement=3996.
Not a bad start for our new focused raiding adventures. The question is now can we get our rusted iron drake before Blizz pull them which is probably going to happen with the release of Icecrown.
I must admit this was overall a great week of raid experience for me I don't know why it was more relaxing than normal raids I have been on with everyone know their roles. There was still the usual piss taking going on but it just seemed to be smoother and more focused.
I know we are behind the curve a bit on this achievements and have slightly over the top gear being in L232 stuff mostly but we are certainly roaring up the realms ranking due to a lot of guilds concentrating on 25 mans.
Roll on Icecrown as Kingdom of Rust are coming!
