This is an achievement that I really thought would not happen. I rarely see groups for this on my server and I am not that motivated to create my own. One nite however, bingo. Unfortunately the raid leader only needed Darnassus or something like that. Ok no worries I would take whatever I can get.
We formed up and ran into the Night Elf city. Dropped that sexy Nelf like I drop a Mac Snack Wrap from McDonalds. Gawd those are delicious and now they have the Angus wraps. Err…. back to the matter at hand. So Night Elf girly down. Our Raid Leader encouraged by his groups epicness says… ok lets do the next one. Back to the boats in Auberdine!
We did the little goat peoples leader in next and it was probably the most difficult he feared us all over the place. Mind you we have like 20 people so he dropped just the same. The war drums were going now. On to Stormwind! I start thinking positive thoughts… this is gonna happen tonite! But fate has a funny way of putting you in place. 10% left on Stormwind city leader guy… Dead! Awww… darn! I will just sit here on the ground til he goes down… and believe me hes going down … like a… oh well… you get the idea.
Then a flash of green lights distracts me… whats this… oh no… the cable modem… its stopped blinking… no… let it just be a hiccup… a single second of packet loss… No no no! Disconnected! Ok no worries… Loging in! I load up the game! Yes hes not down yet… but wait… I just auto released! What The F…
Thats right folks if you disconnect while dead the game helps you by auto releasing you to the nearest grave yard. In this case… somewhere in red ridge mountains. I missed the achievement. Well the rest of the nite went flawlessly got the Dorf King!
But my achievement is incomplete and everyone else in the raid is riding home on their Brown War Bears. This goes on for what feels like a month but was probably a solid week or two. Another For the Horde raid! And Luck! First and only stop is Stormwind! We get about 12 level 80s and head out. People are already starting to question the raid. Do we have enough?
Sure we do! We ride into Stormwind and wow… this is what it is to fail at life. Half the raid dies to guards and whatever else. Tank says screw it and engages…. and I have a split second to decide what to do… aww whatever we engage the 6-8 of us that actually got to the boss. Everything is going great til about 80 percent! Suddenly an 80 pally shows up to try and make things difficult. Then a resto druid. All in total we had about 2-3 players at all times during the fight from 80%-10% trying to kill us off.
The group is ticking along slowly but surely the bosses health is dropping and occasionally an alliance player gets deathgripped to us and pwned quickly before we return to the boss. I have to say that I was quite impressed with the Tank and Healer on this encounter as they did an amazing job.
What a great adrenaline rush! This is what I have been missing from wow for quite a while. Especially on the PVP side of things. The feel of my heart pounding in my chest! I was so pumped from that run I jumped on my Swift Zulian Tiger and ran around in circles in Dalaran! Damn good fights!
