The last couple weeks have been difficult. Most players will know what the summer can do to any solid raiding guild, and we’ve experienced quite a bit of that problem. It’s no one’s fault, really… people are busy going on holidays or having company over (or in my case, having a tooth removed).
So the last 2 weeks have been mostly 10-mans. Last week we ran 1 group of 10, a strike force dedicated to rushing in and taking out Yogg. I was lucky enough to be part of that group for the first night!
And it was a lot of fun. I always forget how much I really do enjoy doing 10-mans… it helps refresh your strategies and makes you feel a bit more responsible and valuable to the team when there are only 10 of you.
On Tuesday we got all the way through to General Vezax, and after taking some extra time after the raid, we got him down. I was pretty excited, and revitalized to see him on Heroic next time!
Unfortunately I wasn’t there the rest of the week due to my tooth extraction, but the rest of the managed to go through and get Yogg Saron down… pretty exciting!
This week I was unavailable to raid Tuesday and Wednesday due to company, but the guild managed to get 1 night of 25s, then had to resort to 2 tens the next night. It was sort of the opposite of the previous week for me, and I got to go in and see General and Yogg.
Yogg was fun! I had fun dodging the clouds and going into the portals. I am a bit scared of going in there with 25 people though… it’s rough enough trying to get 10 people not to stand in the clouds!
Anyway, I realized when I logged in to raid that I hadn’t logged into my Hunter since the previous raid last Tuesday. That’s nearly 10 days! And it made me figure out that I’m just not that interested in doing anything but raiding with her anymore. That’s not a bad thing, but I really do know where my priorities lie.
Hopefully next week we’ll be back to 25s!
This Week in Raiding… is my weekly Saturday post where I allow myself to brag about new gear, bosses, achievements, and such.
Come back next week for another dose of epeen and QQ!
