Thursday night I switched my Merrymaker title for the Kingslayer one, referring to the 25 man version of ICC.
And considering the struggles we've had with this encounter for the last few weeks it felt so gooood. It's not easy to capture it in words, but if I tell you that I even got tears in my eyes as I suddenly was tossed into the win-cinematics, I think you can figure.
After 100+ wipes up there on the frozen platform, this kill felt very much well deserved. Suddenly we just pulled it together; the things that were so impossible last raid suddenly were if not easy, at least very much doable. And of course it helped quite a bit that we didn't have a couple of disconnects every pull. Actually it only took us 1,5 hours to get it done.
So now what? I've killed LK and in one way I've stretched out my hand and hit the wall in the back of the wardrobe, reaching the very end of this expansion. I'm really looking forward to start working on the hardmodes after next reset, but even if it will be fun and challenging, it won't be quite the same. This said I think we'll do just fine in there. With LK behind us we'll probably be a little bit more relaxed than we've been the last week. In a good sense.
However, before we can do that we'll have to find ways to keep ourselves occupied for two more raids until the reset next week. We celebrated our LK kill by going back to ToC to do some hardmodes we never came around to do before ICC was released, and we got another first kill for the guild, the champions. Admittedly we're well overgeared for it, but it was still a perfect way to end this magic night. "The best raiding night I've had in two years", as one of my guildies said to me afterwards.
As you can see if you read this post at the inn and not through a reader, I've done something unusual, throwing up a picture to accompany it. Old readers know that in-game photography never was my strongest side, and I apology for the crap quality. But as they say: screenshot or it didn't happen.
With those words I end this post, thanking all of you bar guests for your never-ending support and for all your encouraging comments as you have been following the struggles of Adrenaline.
This round is on the house, naturally!
