We had a little break in our blogging, but that doesn’t mean the guild stopped raiding 🙂
In the last three months we completed heroic Blackrock Foundry:
– Iron Maidens wins the award for the most annoying boss encounter of wow history. 10 minutes of nothing followed by 2 chaotic and messy ones, leading to boring wipes at the 11th minute or worse and then again and again and again… Prelude doesn’t approve of this fight!
The only happy people were our hunters with their new shiny spearguns. Hunter weaponz FTW
– The Blast Furnace, on the contrary, is a fun fight and for some strange reason phase 2 got the best out of us. We mastered the encounter quickly and we boldly stepped into the last challenge…
– Blackhand, Warlord of the Blackrock, was a wall we crashed into. The heroic fight is hard, and it was hard for us to learn it. We had rotations and replacements in our raiding roster, full nights of wiping, everything that reminded us of when we were hardcore and had to endure nights and nights of no progression and frustration. But we are Prelude… “Never give up. Never surrender.” And finally, at the very last minute before the patch, just in time to get the Ahead of the Curve achievement, we killed him. No warlord rules forever!
Thank you everyone for the nice raiding season in this first Draenor tier! On Blackhand kill we had our full current roster of raiders and everyone was doing great. A special mention to our raid leader Pao and our kiter Oldi the mage, but on the kill everyone did their best, healers, tanks, melees and ranged. Good job Prelude!
Hunter weaponz 🙂
