There will always be boss kills that you will remember, for whatever reason. There will always be that rush for killing something new and challenging. Some will stay in your mind longer than others, but as time wears on, you will think back and recall certain things and laugh at the memories.
Tonight was one of those nights for me. We have a standing joke about “Monolith Tradition” when it comes to killing a new boss. You know, get it down to 1% then fumble a bit before managing to eek the kill out. Of course, the other part of that tradition is frequently killing a boss with just a few people left standing, with everyone else sitting with bated breath as they wonder if those remaining will finish the fight.
Last week we saw Hard Mode Sindragosa at 3%. One of the final encounters in the expasion for us, and one that has been touted to be one of the more difficult fights in the game. Tonight, we saw her at 1%. And finally dead. Of course, she died with no tanks left standing, and DPS trying to squeeze out as much as possible before she turned and killed them, and the rest of the raid biting their nails screaming “MORE DOTS!!!!”. And when all was said and done, it was a perfect kill. Well, technically not “perfect”, but certainly one that will be rememberd down the road as we continue into Cataclysm.
We may not be “first” and we may be “months behind”, but I don’t think I could have traveled this road with a better bunch of people. And that is something I will always remember.
