Saturday night we only had 6 people so we picked up two guildies and went to ICC. It was awesome. Reminded me what we’re missing this raid tier – the grandness, the scale. I’m so sick of fighting in rooms, nothing but rooms. ICC was awesome and grand and….
I took this one because of the funny bug where one dragon’s corpse is in the air. There’s Sindragosa, circling. As soon as you see her, you can practically hear her annoying screech. It’s memorable and epic. None of the current fights do that for me. I like the fights themselves. Had a great time with them. But there was no story, no coherent narrative. After we killed her we went and had a word with her boss. Even now, that fight is wonderful. And the cinematic still makes me vaguely weepy.
Here we are, all dead, Arthas triumphant, his ghosts waiting for our souls. Not even the Fail Angel behind him is going to win. But – Tirion is just about to summon his last reserves and jump out of that ice cube…. and we’re going to get our second chance.
Here’s hoping that the Firelands are more epic than Tier 11 was.
I’m just looking forward to fighting outside!
