It's been weeks and the dust has finally settled over Hellfire Citadel. As you may have been able to tell from our progress bar we killed Archimonde a few weeks ago. It's been a long bumpy road for us to get to the point where we actually finished all end game content on our relaxed schedule. We went from 51st guild on this server last expansion to 11th on the server this expansion, and we have our sites set on bigger goals in Legion. I thought it would be neat to walk people through what it's like to progress on and eventually kill an end game Mythic boss in World of Warcraft. Granted we didn't kill him before most of us had maxed out rings or 10 more item levels but for the things we had to do to get here (Mostly talking about logathil working the glory holes at his local Tim horton's for recruits here.) I'm pretty proud of our guys and girl. So without Farther adieu I present to you:
What a raid leader sees when progressing on Mythic Archimonde
This was my field of view for attempt 50 or so:
No one expects to kill a Mythic boss that early and we had made pretty good progress with our chosen strategy. Things were looking up!
Here we have a shot of roughly our 150th pull or so, keep in mind this is a rough guess as it's all a bit hazy.
I bleeped out my chat box because I don't want my mom to see the terrible things I started writing in officer chat. We hit a few snags and did not learn the first 2 phases as well as I had hoped. But surely things would turn around soon!
Here is a look at roughly pull 250 or so:
My doctor says loss of vision due to sudden spikes in blood pressure is totally normal so I was sure this was fine. I mean any pull now we are gonna kill this guy he's not even that hard we have rings and upgrades right?
SON OF A MOTHER FU....What where am I? This isn't third grade math class.
As you can see killing raid bosses is really fun and carefree. If I don't have a heart attack before Legion we are going to be really fucking good though. Winnie is going to main a poopmonster tank, logs is going to get off his knees at that terrible coffee shop, and Art is going to stop getting hammered while trying to build a new computer. Mclovin might even learn to paladin if he can take some time off from his busy movie schedule.
I got the first mount, and in true classy raid leader fashion I went and stood in everyone's way in warspear for two hours drunkenly telling them about how great the deadpool movie was.
WHAT IT WAS GOOD NO YOU SHUT UP.
