Recently, my guild started attempts on Malygos.  In both Vanilla WoW and Burning Crusade, my guild’s focus was on being a casual, friendly, and mature guild.  We did not push for content, hardly ever fielding enough geared players to run Karazhan on a regular basis.  After WotLK came out, things began to change…people no longer focused on just doing the 5 man content, but wanted to push into the harder 10 man content.   A lot of the players focused on improving their gear, spec, and rotation for raiding.  They collected consumables and signed up for the raids.  I’m very proud of them because tonight, we successfully completed Malygos.  We’ve done all of the raiding content that’s available to a guild our size (25 mans are out of reach) and are ramping up for Ulduar!

I’m a little sad I didn’t get to take my Priest – since all she needed for the Champion of the Frozen Wastes title was a Maly kill.  Oh well, maybe next time.  I’m having an absolute blast playing her, though.  I got lucky in a Naxx run and had no competition and exchanged a lot of my BOE epics for Naxx epics.  I wound up getting like 6 pieces of gear between two runs.  So, the priest is now geared better than the Rogue, but has only been 80 since 3/12.  Too funny!

I can’t wait for Dual Specs now and the changes that are coming for Disc Priests.  I would love to be Disc full-time because it was fun and versatile, but it was VERY challenging to heal 5 mans, which I enjoy very much when I’m Holy spec’ed.   So much of a challenge that it was too frustrating for me to stay spec’ed that way.   It’s going to take some time to get used to the differences between Holy and Disc, but I think it will be worth it.  I’m kind of out of projects until then.

In the meantime…

Yay for killing Malygos!

  2. @AG: YAY! That’s great. Our guild struggled on the 10-man/25-man for a bit until we found something that made it almost too easy: Just as Phase 3 begins, right before the floor breaks, type /follow [insert tank name here] and hit return as you land on your dragon. After that, you move when he moves and you don’t have to worry about where you are. Since you end up not really being able to see Maly, /tar Maly helps to find him. 🙂 Grats!

    • @Markus: Thanks!! I’m very proud of us. Thanks for the helpful tips! I’m going to have to use that next time. When Phase 3 started, we weren’t sure what to do, lol. We had all read and researched, but it’s a little different when the raid leader is calling out the time left before the enrage and I’m not really a fan of high-pressure situations, lol. But, we pulled it off and it was a challenge, which was nice – since so much of the content lately, you could faceroll through. 😛

  3. I am really proud of the guild too. We have come a long way since we started to do the raids. 🙂

    Yey for Ordo!


  4. I know it’s a little late, I haven’t been making the rounds lately, but GRATZ!!! 🙂

  5. Now you guys just need to do 10man 3DU Sartharion. 🙂

    Grats on Maly.

    • @Faru: 😛

      We haven’t attempted any drakes. No one (except one person in the guild) seems overly interested in attempting it. I’m not that excited about trying it out myself. Maybe one day though. 🙂

  6. Grats!
