I came across a silly meme yesterday that featured my beloved Arthas Menethil
. I realised it had been far too long since I had walked the halls of the Icecrown Citadel
and I was ready to once again feel the chilly winds of Icecrown blasting on my beautiful Blood Elf face.
|Now this looks familiar...|
After an AOE Facebook taunt, as well as some guild chat and whisper spam, we easily managed to build a raid of old friends and new to smash down the scourge that stood between us and Uncle Arthas.
|I pledge myself to you, Uncle Arthas. Forever. (Still a better love story than Twilight)|
We only had an hour before the joint Concur and Frostwolves raid, so we popped the raid onto 25 Man Heroic and powered our way through. We managed to get quite a few of the meta achieves along the way too without really trying!
|Must Live! Pop. All. Cooldowns. |
Seeing as though the only raiding I have done this expansion has been LFR, it was a breath of fresh air to raid content I knew with a bunch of wonderful people. I definitely miss raiding with my friends and if I don't pick it back up over the next few weeks, I will definitely start raiding again come Warlords of Draenor.
It took us just over an hour to do a full clear; I wish we could have dragged it out longer! A huge thanks to old friends and founding Concur members Garakith (who brought Faulen) for tanking, Neri for her solo heals and Hyperpali, Deathicism, Xoxaan (who came along on Zaeed) and Nishar (Truule) for their epic dps. And thanks to our new friends and current Concur raiders Skee (Firestar), Riptyde (Shugashack), Deathaim and our beautiful Concur GM Mae. It was a great evening!
|So many achieves!!|
The cherry on top of icing on the cake of this wonderful evening was silly me has always been so focused on achievements that other Guildies needed in the past, I had never obtained the Light of the Dawn title for myself! I gave a girly scream out loud (much to the dismay of Boyfriend sitting next to me) when I realised I scored a new title.
|I think this title suits Casarah perfectly. |
I glance over at Boyfriend, ready to share my excitement, only for my poor eyes to be met with this hot mess. This is definitely NOT the Final Fantasy I grew up with!
Boyfriend obviously has his guilty pleasure, and we all know mine is ICC. What's your gaming guilty pleasure?
