Taking Flight   8 comments

We missed the first round of 25 man 310 speed mounts for our guild by not focusing on The Immortal early enough.  This was 100% the fault of the leadership, we made a mistake.  We told ourselves that we wouldn’t make that mistake again with Ulduar.  We nearly had to eat our words when they announced the release of 3.2 and we thought they would be removing the drakes, with us only part way through the hard modes.  We nearly had to eat our words as we came to realize how challeging the hard modes were for us as a guild and grew uncertain at our ability to finish what was needed for the meta.

But we weren’t going down without a fight.  We’re stubborn that way.  When so many other people gave up on the zone, we went back every week and poured our blood, sweat and tears into what we had remaining to complete.  And you know what?  It was worth every second of time we spent in the zone post 3.2.  Perhaps we are “months” behind, and I will admittedly state that the 245/258 gear helped with some of the later hard modes immensely (good god, the people who did things like Yogg 1, Freya and Firefighter 226 gear…how?!?!  /salute). 

But none of none of those factors make our victory any less sweet :)  Celestial Defender Beruthiel here I come!
