Raiding: Is it a wipe or a kill?

Woo!  Wooooo!!  You know what that means.  Epicness follows below.

Tonight started rough, we wiped a couple of times due to just random assortment of bad luck, but we improved dramatically on phase 3 with some better set up for adds. It was good to see it coming together. We got him to 4% and I swear it was almost as bad as seeing a 1%.  I was dead so this was the lowest I saw.

It was such a tease. We brought a few other people in from <Old Dogz> guild, I am sorry I can’t remember everyone’s names. We smashed it out a few more times and then BAM!

Ahead of the Curve: Argus

I haven’t decided if this was a wipe or a kill?  The only person “up” was Jason in non corporeal form.  This was at the end of the fight and not the end of phase 3 – I promise.  I have also just noticed whilst typing this, his title is Dragonslayer and I feel that explains why he lets me die maybe?  He dislikes dragons. Heartbroken.

I can’t believe we killed Argus, I can only assume DOT’s did it?

There is just nothing I can say that explains how excited I am about having that achievement. It has been a long time since I was raiding at any time or in any capacity to get the Ahead of the curve achievements.

On a selfish level, I never in a million years, thought I would ever be tanking with a raid team to the point of being able to actually complete content. Tanking has always been one of those things that I watched with awe. How could they do it, keep mobs, stay alive, watch aggro, taunt on time, stay out of stuff etc etc. I didn’t think I would ever be saying that I helped the guild achieve this. I mean they were mostly through the content, and I am not sure how much I have actually helped on some bosses, but it still feels pretty good to me.

There are few things I covet more in game than mounts.   Ever since we did the original quest in legion to ride one of these I said I wanted one.  I had to get it no matter what it took.  Thankfully it was a mount we could eventually get. Once you kill Argus on heroic or above you get The Blood of the Unmaker and all you need to do is hand it in to Khadgar in Dalaran.  He gives you the most beautiful mount (with the exclusion of Ashes of A’lar) in the game – the Violet Spellwing.

Here is a picture of the guildies on their mounts.  As the mounts don’t sit we had to take a flying picture. So much awesome in such a cool picture.

We attempted to get Fred his trinket from the Doggies. We didn’t manage to get that for him…again. We did the council without issue and then went to Portal Keeper Wankbalar.  God I hate him.  I try so hard to not stand in the green stuff and it just gets me like….1 time and it just kills everything.

The raid ended on a downer after that due to my idiocy.  Which makes everything I felt above dissipate into shame and guilt about being crap.  But then I looked at my mount and I felt happy again because I helped the guild get that mount and achievement.

We streamed the night again and still had no issues with my laptop or anything which I am happy about. I managed to put a little overlay on my chat window which Craig believes was crap….but like…my skillz aren’t leetzor dude.

Go guildies!!!!!  I am so happy right now 😀
