My guild’s raiding has been stalled for quite a while now. We’re sooooo close to having 25 for our raids that we refuse to give up on doing ICC 25. Every week the guild core won’t let ourselves get saved to ICC 25, just in case we get enough for a guild run. But then we don’t do ICC 10 either, because that’s our backup plan and we don’t want everyone to get saved to that before raid night.
So, every week its been about the same… wait for raid night, don’t have enough for 25, go to ICC 10 instead, get the first 4-5 bosses down. Repeat next week.
Finally – things changed. The buff from Varian Wrynn allows us to clear through the farm content very quickly. We did the first 6 bosses in one 2-hour evening of raiding, and then found ourselves with time available the next night to move on to new content.
Happily, we were able to do Blood Princes and Dreamwalker on our first night of attempts. We also got Putricide to Phase 3, so we’re close on that fight. It was a good week.
Yes, we have the 10% buff from Wrynn.
Yes, we’re a couple of months behind the progression wave.
I don’t care. I’m happy that we’ve moved forward at long last.
We’ve bounced around the idea of switching our guild’s focus to ICC 10 instead of 25, but we gained a few new people recently and we’re still sooooo close to fielding a 25 man team.
It was pointed out to me that I never did my boss guides for all of the ICC fights. There’s a reason. I won’t do a guide for a boss I haven’t killed, and my guild was so far behind in progression that I assumed the guides would be pointless now because most of us have already done the first 8-10 fights. Still, I guess I’ll write them up for the sake of completeness.
