A little setup.
This weekend we were short two healers- Jhudora off getting married, and Kerick off on vacation. I lined up a pair of guildies to fill in, everyone else was there Friday, we were going to be short one Saturday. Friday night we started off in BWD, knocked out our 5 farm bosses in record time (one wipe on Atramedes due to searing flame, one shot everything else), went to Throne, killed the three winds, wiped for two hours on Al Akir, and finished off the night by killing Halfus and the Twins. That made 8 bosses in one night, I believe that’s our new record.
Saturday I lined up someone to fill Grom’s spot. We go to Bastion, kill the trash, and take two tries to get down the Council. That fight is still tricky but after 5 kills I think we have them on farm. It was 45 minutes into raid, and Nomster was ready for bed, so I called a five minute break and took her for her pajama-ing.
That’s when the lights went out.
May is the driest month here in the Panhandle of Florida. June, however, starts hurricane season and even when there’s no hurricanes, we can get some tremendous thunderstorms. I’d noticed the thunder earlier – actually noticed that it WAS thunder and not bombs dropping – and the storm was shaping up to be pretty. Not a lot of rain but the winds were high and I suspect that’s what caused our problems.
We immediately pulled out my phone and – called my brother Logarithm to tell him we were disconnected? No silly. Pulled up guild chat on the armory and told them that way! Way more fun!
After twenty minutes I told them go ahead, replace us or call it or whatever you feel like doing. What they felt like doing, apparently, was being silly. Here for mostly Kerick’s enjoyment is what happened next. (Invariant is me, Asiel and Lyrhya are the guildies we brought in to heal, Azunas was filling Grom’s slot).
This is where I find that our raid can be goaded into silliness to an extreme. At this point the raid is staring at the Cho’gall trash.
And yes, Falahla went and stood Ado up so that when the mobs came back he wasn’t in Feign Death and they killed him. She’s an awesome wife :)
I’m not sure who all died but it looks like they had fun :)
I’m annoyed though because we were going to kill Cho’gall and then go back and try our best to down Al Akir, so we lost a week of progression to a thunderstorm. Boo.
