Forward to the Past
Well, it seems Thursdays are my lucky days. I got to raid with my guild’s main raiding group again because they needed DPS. This time, we went to Hyjal Summit to see if we can get Archimonde down. The raid team had gone into Black Temple again on Tuesday to finish off High Warlord Naj’entus, Supremus, and Shade of Akama. The count is now 4/5 SSC, 3/4 TK, 4/5 Hyjal, and 3/9 BT.
This run, we got all of the first four bosses one-shotted, minus a few wipes and partial wipes on trash mobs. The furthest we got Archimonde down to was 79%, and it was the best attempt the guild has had in several weeks. I believe their best ever was 52% from what I was told. After 10 wipes, we called off the raid because people needed to go to sleep. Hey, at least I used my [Medallion of the Alliance], the only reason I did battlegrounds.
But the best part is when your screen flashes with:
That made my day. :-D It’s not every day you get to see something like that.
More pictures below.
Loot was decided upon by Loot Council. We did not receive anything because primary raiders are more important of course. We did see some nice hunter pieces drop though, something we hope to someday receive if we come back again.
Upon looking at the parses from the fight, we consistently hit 900+ DPS. I also blame an easy fight in Anetheron due to buggy infernals, allowing us to hit 1100+ DPS on that portion of the night. Considering we were way undergeared, I’d say that’s a decent performance.
Back to Serpentshrine Cavern again tomorrow. Let’s hope I’ll be able to see Hydross the Unstable and Lurker Below killed.
