Some of you with good memories (or who actually click on links on my sidebar) may remember a post about the adventures of my 10 man team.
Ah, we have our strengths and our weaknesses. There are things we can do and things we have more trouble with. For example,
Thing my 10 man team can do:
Kill Lich King.
Thing my 10 man team needs to work on:
Standing together for screenshots.
Joking aside, all of our hard work finally paid off earlier this week when Arthas finally went down. It was a strange feeling, though. While I did excitedly type in healer chat “I think I’m going to cry now” (I’m one of those very confused people who cry when they’re too giddy), my actually feeling was more along the lines of “well duuuuuuuh”. I knew all along we had it in us, it was just a question of getting it out of us, as a manner of speaking.
It helped a lot to have a few people in our group who’d downed the Lich King before, but mostly, you could tell it was all about practice. In the few attempts before the kill, we were moving almost automatically through the Valk/Defile phase, as if our fingers had the fight memorized.
So for those of you who haven’t killed Arthas yet, hang in there. With the buff active, it’s about learning the fight, getting used to the Valk and Defile timers.
