Old Slice is Old.
I know this is old new but Shadow Rising is now 12/12! Go us!
I am glad that we were able to down the content before the nerf to T11 raids. However, the competitive person in me wishes we had made some attempts/kills in Heroic modes.
I started raiding with SR back in 12/3/09 – horrible gear and ICC was about a month or two away. I dinged 80 1 week or so before the LFD and I hit those dungeons hard. I geared up my priest from Ilvl 200 to everything i could get with badges – full T9 and whatever slots I could fill in. Then did a few ToC’s and then ICC. Ahh miss the old crew…
Did very well for a while and then lets not bring up old memories, but I felt it was time to move on…
So I shopped around and eventually joined an Alliance guild on Skywall (choice – btw they are recruiting! Great group). I had a great few months there, it was odd going from 10 man to the 25 man environment. But at the time it was great, I got to do heroics and it was a blast.
The drive to down something on Heroic was a hunger that I do miss I admit. I got to heal with some amazing healers, Fugs, Ygg (grr I could barely keep up with him on the meters!), Colwyn, Vvtra, Akena, and Pally Blogger Star, Madrana. They were definitely on the pervy side but in a good way! they were funny and was a warm feeling to be raiding with that crew. (lol the gnome mages, Panyx and Geng always cracked me up)
Although, I did not get all the Heroics done in 25 man when current, I was realy close, there was only HLK25 left on my plate, it was an experience that was a blast.
But eventually, SR was back in business and I came back home as one would say. We had our struggles I will admit.
We had some hangups with not enough people some nights, to just straight up trying to insert a square into a round hole.
Other times things went perfectly and bosses died left and right. I am glad to be back in SR! 12/12 is nothing to sneeze at!!
However, the “harccore” mentality as Lyss would like to call it is still there….raiding 4 hrs, 3x a week. Heroic modes attempt….I do miss it at times. I still check out Choice’s progress and wish I was still there sometimes. (evil old Heroic Prof Putricide and Sindy.)
