Has the curse actually been lifted? April 25, 2009

We had an excellent night of raiding.

It began with Ykesha’s Inner Stronghold. We killed the Strange Stalker with little issue and moved on to Kultak the Cruel. We’ve never killed Kultak, and as we’ve never killed Switchmaster either, Kultak is skipping slightly ahead in TSO progression for us. We did surprisingly well however and I had to chastise myself for doubting. We didn’t get him down, but we were able to kill all his adds and work directly on him. I think it was great progress and he is a lot closer to dying than I initially thought.

We decided to call pulls on him and head to TotMC again to pick up a couple more patterns for the raid. We blew through the first two named and slaughtered Thet-em-aua on the second pull. It was such an improvement over last week. It was actually hard to believe how smoothly it went. I was really proud of our guild and it reminded me how our raids are supposed to go. Now just to bottle all of that success up so we can repeat it every week.

The eye mounted ring dropped again and I won it. I even beat four others on the roll. Has the curse really been lifted?

We followed the raid up with some Second String time. We formed up with Anep, Sinnir, Me, Graybone, Elonias (eventually swapping Elonias for Taylona as Elo went to hopefully kill Varsoon and finish his Chapter 8 quest) and Seeb. We blew through Najana’s Hollow Tower, OoA, and AoB before calling it a night. It was a good time and nice to do some grouping again with those guys. We’ve been slacking too much lately.

Today we are headed to Shard of Hate for our more relaxed Saturday raid. We are following that up tonight with a Second String foray into Ward of Elements. It’s also Taylona’s birthday, and we are combining Anep’s birthday with Tay’s, so I imagine most of us will be seeing ALL KINDS of monsters by the end of the night ;)

Good Morrow, friends.
