Guys, I am SO proud of my guild! We raided for the first time, as a new guild, and it was so much fun. The run was so smooth and we accomplished a lot more than I honestly expected for our first time. Last night we went into Antorus, The Burning Throne and knocked down five of eleven bosses. I figured we would have a lot more mechanic wipes than we did but everyone seemed totally prepared, for the most part.
I'll be the first to admit that we really had no set plan going forward last night but we did plan on having fun and making the raid as stress free as possible and that is exactly what happened. There wasn't much downtime but the down time that we did have was mostly spent looking for more raid members or the usual 30 minute bathroom break that typically happens at the middle marker for our raid.
My guild mates stepped up in a big way as well. Without hesitation, one of our tanks took the lead for our raid team and did an phenomenal job preparing everyone for the fights and calling out mechanics. The other members did equally amazing, everyone was getting along and the vibe was then in full force. It does help that the lot of us are drunk raiders as well.
The Rebels did an awesome job and I'm just really impressed with everyone. There was so much laughter going on, even with non guild members who we had to pug in. Everyone was having a really good time AND we were accomplishing things. I loved it and I'm so excited for Thursday.
