Fall of the Lich King.

Worst kill EU has sort of been the mantra for us during progress in Icecrown Citadel, and by no means was the last fight in normal mode any different. The Lich King, the last hurdle before hard modes, was slightly annoying. After lots of tries with little progress, and the Olympics on TV, we were ready to call it quits. But a slight change in tactic suddenly meant some progress and finally, in what has to be the worlds sloppiest kill, it was RP tiem!

The HWL got a new sword and Bowjo got a polearm.

Possible the first time since Nefarian we have all posed for a screenshot.

In other news, we are recruiting a whole lot of classes! Head on over to the forum if you would like to hang out with us.

Here be dragons.

The server made it fairly hard to raid this lockout. We killed one of the new bosses fairly early on Thursday, but because of various issues we didn’t get to try Sindragosa before Tuesday, last day of the lockout. It started out ok, got some tries on her and had some small progress, but then she decided to bug out. After having to soft reset the instance, she worked again, and we killed her quite late in the evening. Another Worst Kill Eu for us there, but down is down so whatevs.

ZOMG DARGON!

Someone had hidden Cardiz’ mount under the dragon corpse.

Unfortunately it was pretty late, and even though we had plenty of tries left there was no time to try The Lich King himself. Hoping for a better server this week, fingers feathers crossed!

Bite my shiny feathery ass!

So we haven’t updated for a little while, but we have been doing a bit of raiding whenever the shitserver allows it. We killed Professor Putricide last lockout. Should have done it the week before, but that’s another story. Anyways, on to more recent stuff.

This week a new wing opened up, The Crimson Hall, containing the bosses The Blood Prince Council and Blood-Queen Lana’thel. We started on the Council, where we possibly scored the worst kill in EU after a few wipes. After the Council we went up to the Blood-Queen, and that fight can be seen here:

PoV: Tommi the Pole. The music is his choice…

New year, new content.

This lockout we got a new wing open in Icecrown Citadel, Plagueworks. This wing contains Festergut, Rotface and Professor Putricide. Tried to do a raid on patch day, but that got fucked right up the butt by the utterly shit server that is Stormscale. Went again Thursday and killed the two first fairly easily.

Something funny haha shitserver.

Entering the Icecrown Citadel…slowly.

Yesterday patch 3.3 was applied and we could start raiding the final tier in Wrath of the Lich King aptly named Fall of the Lich King. Having been on Stormscale for almost 5 years now, we were slightly apprehensive to what the server would be like at prime time and, as it turned out, rightfully so. We anticipated some fairly easy first bosses on normal mode, so in order to maximize the loot whoring we will run 2 groups through these early normal mode kills and fill up the raid with alts. This worked very well.

Zoning in around prime time we first met Lord Marrowgar. The lag hit pretty hard here, and killing Bone Spikes became quite hard. Luckily this boss is so ridiculously simple that even with lag ridden, horrible dps he died without inflicting much harm except to a few Poles, but no one likes them anyway.

Next in line was Lady Deathwhisper, and this is where the lag really became a problem. After a wipe we got a try with slightly less lag, and she died too. The Gunship Battle was a stupid and easy gimmick fight, except for being on a motherfucking boat, which was awesome. That only left us with good, old Deathbringer Saurfang. To much cries of “Dude! We loved you at the Wrath Gates!” we pulled. After an insanely long RP speech (they better make it possible to skip this!) he quickly died without much fuzz, and was dragged away.

This concludes the normal portion of The Lower Spire in Icecrown Citadel.

The few who could be persuaded to stand still for 5 seconds.
