We’re continuing our progress through Throne of Thunder heroic, and managed to down two heroic bosses over the course of two nights this reset, namely Dark Animus and Twin Consorts.
In earlier resets, we defeated Durumu, Primordius and Iron Qon as well, setting us up to start progressing on Lei Shen HC!
Atleast our screenshot of our kill on the final boss of this tier doesn’t suck… :’D
So, it finally died. A part from pre-nerf Zor’ok HC, I think it’s more than safe to say that this boss is definitely the hardest and most demanding in terms of having to play flawlessly in this tier; especially when you don’t have a Discipline Priest. Over all, Sha of Fear is more than worthy of its title as this tier’s final boss.
Mists of Pandaria has been a challenge for us in Insurgency. Coming into this expansion with a strong roster, we started out very well securing a world #43 10-man Heroic Emperor of the Will. Sadly, we, as the majority of 10 man guilds out there eventually will, ran into problems and by the time we killed Heroic Zor’lok, our Guild Master (sorry guys but I’m back now!!) and three important core raiders who were a part of Heroic MSV-progress, had stepped down, leaving us severely crippled for the rest of HoF and ToES. Luckily we managed to snap a handful of top tier Danish players to replace these and ended first tier of Mists of Pandaria as the 71th best 10-man guild in the world. Given the circumstances and the cards we were dealt, this is over all a decent result for us – however, a world #122 on a final boss of a tier is something we aren’t going to be satisfied with in the upcoming tier, which will bring 12 new hopefully epic and challenging heroic bosses. Our ambitions are high!
With a stronger roster than ever we’re looking forward to 5.2 and the challenges that await! The competition on Tarren Mill has gotten insanely stiff with Nihilum, Prime and Bad Example entering the race for realm first kills. Hopefully this’ll result in a competitive – yet healthy of course – environment on Tarren Mill once again! May the force be with you, fellow TM’ers!
5.2 is going to be fucking sweet.
With Lei Shi down, the only encounter left for us in this tier is Sha of Fear.
After being forced to rotate effin’ 14-15 players throughout progress on Amber-Shaper, this pain in the ass finally went down tonight. We had him on 0.5% Thursday night, so sort of disappointing he didn’t go down before tonight. However, that is the result of being forced to rotate so many players and thus always have someone new learning the core mechanic of the fight – simply because _ONE_ personal mistake while being transformed will wipe the entire raid completely; no way around it.
Overall a great fight on 10 man and definitely one of the hardest fights so far in Mists of Pandaria. Now on to a harder fight, Embress. Mists of Pandaria is awesome!
Second best time in the world. Set twice within 20 minutes. Both done on the stage during DreamHack.
2000 people on stream, and an audience of approximately 500, witnessed Insurgency beat Novi Got in the DreamHack Winter 2012 Challenge Mode Finals quite convincingly and thus bringing us home yet another achievement – this time a DreamHack-trophy.
