Wait, we did what?

June 25, 2009

So while our first swing at Ulduar 25 last night felt a bit clunky – we were missing our official main tank and a few regular dps – it was also fantastic in its own way. I would even go as far as to assume that the entire raid read my last post and collectively decided to shove it in my face.

We one-shotted Flame Leviathan, Razorscale, XT, Kologarn, Auriaya, and Hodir. We one-shotted Hodir! We’ve spent weeks wiping on him six times before killing him, and we sweep in without our MT and flatten him. FANTASTIC.

Then, hoping we weren’t pressing our luck, we ran in on Thorim.

Of course, he beats us down, and we wiped for the first time that night. But spirits were still high, and we pushed on with different tactics until we did something we hadn’t done before – we made it to the enrage timer. And then, y’know, promptly died. But still! We’d never survived that long before. At that point it was late and we called the raid, but we called it on a high note – a tactic that finally worked to keep us alive in both sections. Now it’s just down to speed.

As a side note, I’ll be working on the XT writeup either today or tomorrow. I’ll be skipping Ignis at the moment, since we didn’t kill him last night and I prefer to do the writeups while the fight is still fresh in my mind. 🙂
