We did it! We bloody did it.
I spent all afternoon sulking after the debacle on Wednesday and we only had 7 signed for tonight. Decided to log in anyway and found we had a few more available, so we gathered 10 of us and headed for the platform.
We didn’t have the best group. We had 3 Paladins (one who had never seen the fight before), 2 priests (one disc, one shadow), a mage who had spent all week ill in bed, 2 druids (a tree and a chicken), a warrior (who normally tanked but we decided he would be best of the 3 tanks to do dps) and a wonderful shaman healer. What? No, we didn’t have anyone who could interrupt the enraged shamblers. No hunter, no rogue.
Gradually, we got better and better. We started moving in tune, helping each other out by talking (and not blaming ). We had a 27% wipe or something like that. Then all of a sudden it was like being in a movie, watching as everything went right…. Right until 12% when people started dying. We battle ressed one, one used an Ankh (I think – sorry Ari if you didn’t), I spammed Holy Nova, it was mass panic …. and we all died.
Had we done it, or had we wiped?
WE DID IT! WE DID IT! We had a DBM thing that said … “Roleplay 3mins” or similar.
Then I was ressed by Terenas Menethil! Woo Hoo!
I was so excited I forgot to screenshot it.
We nuked the hell out of Arthas and got this…..
I am so happy. I was shaking. After recent upsets and people leaving the guild and me wanting to stay strong and stick to my beliefs that we COULD do it Strict 10 man, we did it.
We had 3 people with us who had seen 25 man ICC. One who has done a lot of it and 2 who had done the first 4 bosses in there (but who still need a LOT of loot and can not be called “decked out in 25 man gear” by a long way).
Here is the dead Arthas shot….
Oh and we got crappy loot – we had to diss the fist weapon because nobody wanted it
