In an earlier post I mentioned in passing that we went into Black Temple for the first time. I had a great time. I love seeing new content and learning new fights.
After downing three bosses in Mt Hyjal on our first trip there two weeks ago, I think our guild was feeling a bit cocky going into BT. In chat, it seemed like everyone was expecting to stroll through the place with little trouble. Not so. After we wiped a few times on the first big trash pull, some people started wondering if maybe we should go back to Hyjal instead.
After we got by that pull we found our rhythm. We cleared to Naj’entus and one-shotted him. That was a fun fight. I imagine that it would have been difficult pre-patch with the huge amount of raid healing that goes on. But with all of our resto druids throwing Wild Growth around it was a piece of cake.
We also got to Supremus, and found him to be a bit of a challenge. We had to learn the hard way that, even after the patch, the volcanoes are almost instant death. (aside: That is a horrible fight for a rogue or any melee dps) We did manage to get him down, though. That was all the time we had, and we called it after Supremus.
I loved the challenge. It seems like a fun place. For the umpteenth time, I want to thank Blizzard for making these raids accessible to players like me before the expansion.
So this weekend will be our last raiding for a while. Guild morale is high. We’d like to take one more shot at a high end raid before the expansion. We could try and go for a full clear of Hyjal. Or, since we have only seen two bosses in Black Temple we could go back there. Maybe we can step back and do TK since we have never been in there. Or we could try Sunwell… nah.
