Cho'Gall is down!

Congrats to <Insomnia>! Only my second raid night with them,  but after 17 wipes (including a 3% wipe that got us all very excited), attempt #18 saw the fat man fall! Hah! THATS for laughing at me in feralas! And for killing my Kor'kron buddies that I was supposed to escort to the foot of your fortress! To be fair they spent a lot of time on him the other week when I was still on the bench, so for most of them it was a lot more than 17. Also we were practising with no slow on the slimes for the first 6 or 8 wipes till our hunter logged on

Pretty sweet, as it's only my second night raiding with them, or indeed raiding anything at all in cataclysm (baradin hold doesn't count as raiding). It's quite a differant raiding style to what I'm used to in <Haste>, far more casual and laid back, which is good and bad. Good for obvious reasons, bad becuase there are a lot of afk's and switching out raiders. Not nearly as bad as raiding with IRL friends over on Stonemaul server in early wrath, these guys are quite a bit better prepared than that, but it's gonna take some getting used to going back to this style after having been in a serious raiding guild for a year.

I'm not nearly as excited about it as I should be though. Again, it's only my second raid night and on the first night we 1-shotted both bosses I was present for so I'm prety sure thats a huge part of it for me. For the rest of Insomnia, they've been working towards this for weeks. ME? I just kinda swaggered up to the plate and knocked it out of the park my first time up to bat. Not enough build-up for me. I'd say it was anticlimatic, but you have to have some rising tension to have a climax. Or maybe it's just that Cho'Gall never really excited me storywise. Maybe it's both. Either way, it's so nice to be raiding again!
