I guess its about time, and this is old hat for a lot of guilds, but its still very exciting for us. We’ve finally defeated 25-man Kel’thuzad and finished heroic Naxxramas.
It was very important to us that we get this done before Ulduar. For the past two weeks raid attendance has been outstanding, and we have been more focused and faster than ever before.
KT was a great fight – lots of fun. There is so much going on and everyone needs to use their “oh crap” buttons several times. Yes, I was dead through the last third of the fight (dang ice blocks!) but I was cheerleading and calling out void zones and watching with excitement as KT’s health ticked down. One of our off-tanks got ice-blocked when Kel’thuzad was at about 10% and the adds started running around hitting everyone. It was a race to see if the dps could take him out before the adds wiped us. KT died with about 1/2 of the raid left standing.
Thanks, Blizzard, for a very well-designed final boss encounter. I can see why this raid was recycled from pre-BC to get more people into it.
Unfortunately, no rogue loot dropped. But our mage and resto druid completed their full T7.5 sets, and our tank and shadow priest got great upgrades.
If the patch doesn’t come this week, then we plan to spend a night at Malygos next weekend to try and finish off all of the 25-man content before the new raid is released.
