Where the view is always better.

Discovered: Ahn’Qiraj

For some of you, Ahn’Qiraj may be a trip down memory lane. But for me, it was like a legend: the infamous Twin Emperors, a relentless C’Thun, and an epic movie.

But no longer.

No battle tank for me, but walking through the entire raid instance itself was impressive. I can see why pre-BC players would miss this place.

  1. Grats! I’ve pugged it twice within the last 2 weeks. The first time, we had trouble with the Twin Emperors until we learned the strategy. Knocked them down after the 3rd try, but called the raid as it was getting too late. Our second attempt this past Tuesday was far more troublesome. 40 people who had never before worked together, and 30 of them figured we could just waltz through the place, what with being over-geared and 10 levels higher. They were proven way wrong as we couldn’t down the Twins and the raid was called again.
    It’s worth noting that in its time, this was one of the hardest raid instances in the game. And if no one listens to the raid leader and follows the strategy that’s given, you’re still going to find out what it’s like to taste the floor, along with a healthy dose of humble pie.
    No worries though. One day I’ll get a chance to see C’thun and give that bastage a taste of his own medicine.

  2. Twin Emperors was an interesting fight. To be honest, we probably wouldn’t have made it past them if it weren’t for our healers. They were really on top of things in spite of our sloppy performance. We decided to wipe the first attempt since there was no general coordination whatsoever. In the second attempt, we let the twins heal back to 80% and 50% after getting them down to 10% twice. The third time, we finally coordinated properly and took them down. It took us the same amount of time it would take a 40-man raid of 60s back before Burning Crusade.
