Saviors of Azeroth!
It’s taken me a couple of days to make this post, because I’ve been so giddy with delight. Yet at the same time, I’m royally bummed that post 5.0 I no longer have the addon that automatically takes screenshots of achievements. The one achievement I REALLY wanted a screenshot of!!
Three weeks before the launch of a new expansion, <Masochistic Tendencies> has defeated Heroic Madness of Deathwing. Twice. Last week we got our first Heroic Spine kill. There was much rejoicing, and then we got to take a look at the Madness fight. Because we were so close we could taste it, despite the reported bugs on the congealing bloods in Phase 2, we decided on an impromptu raid on Monday night to dedicate to our Madness efforts.
Monday night was bittersweet. It was bittersweet because halfway through the evening, Nos had to bail due to RL. He came back in the middle of our winning attempt, and was going to jump back in if we wiped. Of course, that was the winning attempt. It required both Reluu and I to both pop kitty form and swipe AOE the bloods to get them down (Killer Instincts talent FTFW) because of the bug. It was bittersweet because we had to replace another regular raider in order to get the kill. That raider deserved the kill just as much as the rest of us. We had to make the decision because time was running out and we were thisclose to that goal that I never dared to believe we could attain.
Of course Nos was a little anxious. Our raid leader was going to be out on Thursday so we made another impromptu decision to raid Tue/Wed this week instead of Wed/Thurs to ensure we had Mav calling out CDs on Spine and Madness. We were riding such a high that we went in Tuesday night, one shot up to Heroic Spine, two-shot Spine then two-shot Madness. 8/8H in one night. 2.5 hours. And Nos is now a Savior too.
This week and next week will be dedicated to getting other raiders and new raiders into H DS and hopefully getting some more titles. Once we get more titles, everyone must come together for a screenshot. We are now a guild to be reckoned with on our server. We are the Saviors of Azeroth. We are MT.
