We Smash Rockguy.

We returned to Gruul’s Lair after the reset, and had the neat result of killing Maulgar twice in 48 hours. It was a bit of a flashback to the old days of Naxxramas and the like. After some initial pulling concerns, Maulgar stood no chance.

We headed up the tunnel of doom (some will claim love) and dutifully wiped on trash as is the SI way (thanks Nestra). Picked ourselves up, and learnt the ropes of this annoying encounter. Annoying if only for the deceptiveness of not reaching your growth benchmarks of 8-15% per growth.

End result was Gruul’s was conquered, even if it meant losing some rogues along the way:

Special thanks to the reserves on hand as always; 25M content is making life difficult for those having to select the groups.

Okay, so we cleared Karazhan and then took a little holiday. No biggie, a lot of people enjoyed the break from raiding and took a more casual approach to Karazhan. The result is that the 2nd group broke through and are now progressing beyond Aran, which is excellent news.

We ventured forth into Gruul’s Lair tonight after a few weeks of scheduling issues (well, warrior issues per say…) and the result was typically SI. Once we can actually invest some time into the place, we reap the results. Not before generalised QQ about lack of progression, mind you!

Special thanks to all who attended on short notice – it was originally going to be a Karazhan night for the 2nd group. Special thanks also to the guys that missed out on the raid because they had to go during the raid (Balditik), were on reserve (Amnion, Zedrif, Florionbeel, Tomminz, Tenel, Troldol) or just plain missed out on the invite (Icet, Phalius).
