Just thought I'd point out our success in Zul'Gurub tonight. We trounced the Snake and got the Bat down to 2%.
Gharnl (our normal raid leader) and Jahdiel (our normal main tank) couldn't make it tonight, and we were introducing a few people to the instance for the first time. This is a good part of why we stumbled on bosses we've already got on farm status, but is also an incredible indication of where we stand in terms of player skill - despite those stumbling blocks, we adapted and had a lot of success.
Hamish wasn't there either, and Vent was very quiet. Eerily quiet. Even I was disturbed by the silence. It was deafening. Fear-inspiring. Where was the drunken raving? I don't know. Ask Hamish.
G's [item]Fang of Venoxis[/item] dropped. Summonerwolf got it. That's TWICE now that he lost his dagger to a warlock, and I'm convinced his shield would have dropped if the Bat had gone down. And then I would have rolled on it, and then disenchanted it, and then forced Gharnl to give me an enchant with the resulting shard. Or Summoner!
I guess I'm done tormenting him now.
So, in closing: Goldendragon did a particularly awesome job tanking, and the rest of you also did good jobs doing whatever it is you do. Ari earned herself a medal. A medal I'm too cheap to buy, so she'll just have to accept my thanks, which is worth absolutely nothing.
But still, thanks!
See you guys next week.
