– Vitas after finally beating Jimmy Connors at the 1979 Masters following sixteen straight losses.
And nobody beats Valhalla seven times in row. A lesson that old Patchwerk learned this weekend (hmm…I seem to remember one-shoting him several times before).
So why did it take so many attempts to get down a boss that we had considered to be on farm status? I really can’t say other than, while people like to boast about how easy these encounters are, there is little room for error and if just a few people fail to do their jobs, it’s a one-way ticket to wipesville.
On a brighter note once we got down Patch we had zero problems with Grobbulus and we one-shot Gluth. Our first guild take down of the zombie eating mutt.
Our raid weekend concluded with Instructor and Gothik going down, also two guild firsts. I know most of you are probably waist deep in Ulduar right now, and Naxx is ancient history. We’ll get there, but for now I must bask in the glory of progress.
We’re transitioning from a 10 to a 25 man raiding guild and it’s not easy.
