I was previously only 5/8 in Dragon Soul because my guild stopped raiding. When a guildie asked me if I wanted to run a normal mode Dragon Soul last night, I was excited. It’d be a chance to do it on normal mode even if it is super nerfed now, and it would also be a chance to practice after the patch. Nate took a little convincing, but when he realized that not being set up after the patch wasn’t a good enough excuse, he swapped over and joined us.
I don’t care if it’s late. I’m still taking a killshot. Here’s Blackhorn dead. I had never actually got to do any attempts on him previously. While I had studied the fight, the mechanics still confused me. (Consider that it’s also been many months since I studied the fight too.)
Spine of Deathwing was an absolute blast. While I do feel like it’s anti-climatic in that it’s the same process repeated, I still find it really cool. Rather than being in a room fighting a raid boss, the location is the actual boss. This isn’t the first game to do it, but it’s definitely fun.
While Mooglegem didn’t make it to the end of the fight, we did successfully put down the Madness of Deathwing. I also won the Maw of the Dragonlord! Someone offered me 500g for it, but I wanted to keep the mace. How exciting! Now I can be Devee, Destroyer’s End.
