We took out Saurfang in only three attempts tonight, the first time fighting him that wasn’t an accidental Leeroy. (“Let’s just have a look at what’s past this door. Wait, I think we need to talk to Saurfang…”) Not only that, but on the third, successful attempt, we got I’ve Gone And Made A Mess– the DPS were absolute champions at controlling and nuking the Blood Beasts after only a few tries to see how things went. After that, we spent some hilarious time wiping on the Upper Spire trash, then took a “let’s just see” crack at Festergut that involved getting him down to two thirds of his health even though Holy Terror, our lead and best-geared healer, got basically one-shotted during the pull. We are confident we have the stuff to take him down and just need to nail the execution.
I am ridiculously proud of my little herd of kittens right now. We are definitely a casual guild and we do prioritize attitude, temperament, and overall compatibility over gear and availability, but for having as small a core and the kinds of priorities we do we can seriously dial it in when we put our minds to it.
