Sindragosa bites the dust, Lich King will surely follow... eventually

So, for all of you who don't know. I play World of Warcraft. It's an MMORPG (Massive Multi-player Online Role Playing Game) with currently millions of players (although I have a feeling that's millions of accounts, not necessarily actual players). Sorry for people who are not going to understand all of this, but I'm too excited not to post about it.

My guild has been running 25-man ICC (Ice Crown Citadel) for weeks, even months now. Pretty much since it came out. First we had a hard time getting past the first four bosses, now we're flying through those, and taking down most things in one attempt. Although, in our overconfidence we managed to wipe on Lord Marrowgar the first time we tried to down him on Tuesday (embarassing). We've been doing Sindragosa (big scary bone dragon) attempts for the past three or four weeks, and last night... we one-shot her!!!! At 10% I died, because I wasn't broken out of the ice tomb quickly enough, and then I watched with mounting excitement as her health dropped down to 5%, then 4, 3, 2, 1. When she dropped, I was shouting with excitement and doing a little happy dance in my chair, much to my husband's amusement. One-shot, after getting so close the past few weeks that we could taste it. It was amazing.

My walked through Princes and Blood Queen and picked things back up on Wednesday by one-shotting Festergut and Rotface within 30 minutes. Professor Putricide gave us a few problems, due to stacking issues, but we got him down too. And then, for the first time in our 25-man runs, we got to see the Lich King. We were so excited we decided to take a group picture with him still alive. Then we proceeded to wipe several times as we were learning the strategy for Phases 1 and 2 and the transition phase in between. Phase 1 is down, the transition phase is so-so, and Phase 2 was absolutely terrible. We only got to try it twice, but both times were a royal disaster. You've got something coming to you, stupid chickens.... just saying.

So yay! Our guild is 11/12 with one boss to go. Don't even mention hard modes to me yet.


  1. LOL. This made me remember the funniest "South Park" that I watched the other day. I do not understand anything about WOW, but congratulations on your victory.

  2. Haha, yeah, I know exactly what South Park episode you're talking about too. It's kind of required WoW-addict material. That and the Leroy Jenkins video. Which is only truly funny after you know how to play, but is still pretty funny even if you don't. :)
