Day 4: Your Best WoW Memory
I have to be honest, there are quite a few. Pretty much all the raiding success in Wrath have been great because it was awesome times with good friends.
But really, the one that makes me chuckle the most would be my first raid ever. Classic Zul’Gurub in Vanilla WoW. My pre-The Zug Initiative guild, Zug Zug Auxiliary, had teamed up with another smaller guild at the time to take the place down. They were short some DPS so they invited my fire mage along for the fun.
We were on the snake boss (forget the name), and after much yammering on Vent, we finally went to it. I didn’t really know the fight and didn’t really know any tactics. Just keep casting fireball at the boss. Everything seemed to be going fine until, well, it wasn’t. After a tank went down, the boss starting smiting everyone there, leaving little ol’ Darthregis for last. (I must have been doing crap DPS for being so low on the threat meter – didn’t have Recount back in the day).
The boss had a smidgen of health left and I was throwing everything I had at him. Trying to cast, run away, then cast some more. Everyone on vent was cheering me on, “Go Regis!”, “Get him, he’s almost dead!”, “Go! Go! Go!” I was doing as best I could and trying to make that little sliver of green on his health bar disappear.
But I died. 😛
We went back in and finished the boss off the second time and moved on from there. But it was really my first, “Oh crap! YOU are our last chance of beating this!” situation. It was totally unexpected and while I failed, I still find it funny that I was thrown into that for my first raid.
More music! From my favourite band! (Not my favourite song by them, though):
