On Saturday we decided to raid Mogu’shan Vaults because our normal raid nights are now only Heart of Fear. When we got to Elegon, we decided to try to earn “And… It’s Good!” for flying through the rings. We got it, and now you can share in our joy by watching the above video!
Afterward we went to complete “A Change of Command,” a quest for the second chapter of Wrathion’s quests. If you’re worried, the video doesn’t have any spoilers. It’s just a fight, but it does take a group of people. We did it with 10. It was a pretty fun fight especially considering it’s a mob out in the world!
What a fantastic raid week! We had cleared up to Elegon on Tuesday, giving us Wednesday to work on Elegon. We had to work out some changes to our raid team due to scheduling, but we found a solution and proceeded with the celestial dragon slaying. It took us a number of attempts, but this is the kind of raiding that I love. It was challenging, but we got better with each attempt. We learned, changed our strategies, and eventually killed him!
Elegon was probably the most fun boss I’ve done yet this expansion, but maybe I’m just still happy we killed him. It was also one of the first times in a while in which I stopped casting altogether so save mana. Now we just have one more boss to go in Mogu’shan Vaults!
Hot on the heels of Tuesday’s first kill of Gara’jal the Spiritbinder, we one shot the Spirit Kings! We had never even attempted this boss before ever (because we had just killed Gara’jal for the first time). It was definitely a good night! No loot dropped for me, but I’m happy anyways!
After our one shot, we went to try Elegon. We wiped twice on the trash. Apparently trash is more difficult than bosses. We got one attempt in on Elegon before we had to call it, but next week should be great!
Mooglegem and I were late to the raid because she had to work overtime. We didn’t make it online until 8:05 or so even though the raid was supposed to start at 7:00. On top of that, one member had to leave at 9:00. That means our normal 3 hours was cut down to 55 minutes. I’m amazed we still made some progress!
