When I recieved my second Binding for Thunderfury, I had not expected it at all, just filling in on an MC raid and since our MT at the time already had the same binding I did, I didn't bother with the quest. I had to zone out and go do the quest and make it back in time for Rags to loot the Essence.
Less than 24 hours later we summoned Thunderaan. Huge props to Flintridge for kicking in 40 some Arcanite bars. Then a warlock ninja looted the quest drop off Thunderaan....fortunately we were able to straighten that "accident" out. I was hyperventilating, freaking out, climbing the walls, you name it.
About 14 months ago there was a bit of a power struggle within the guild and I was set to walk away from it all. Some things got back to me and I unloaded on the person I was having problems with. History: He was the raid leader but had to go away for a summer job and I had to fill in. First raid I led was our first Broodlord kill. Anyhow, he left the guild and took a dozen of the best geared raiders with him. We raided the next night and while we didn't get as far as usual, we filled in the gaps and everyone played thier guts out. They formed thier own guild and started sniping people off that didn't leave immediately with them but we kept going. It was Labor Day last year...I had initially called off the raid for the holiday but we had cleared all the trash up to Ebonroc the previous raid. Our MT was out, our GM and his wife couldn't make it (best healer in the guild by far) but we tried it anyhow. 1 shot Ebonoob and EZgore and lined up for Chrommagus. 6 pulls later he's dead.
The guild that broke off of us killed him a few days later and got Nef before we did but they raided alot more than we did and set themselves up as a hardcore raiding guild. We always lagged behind and there were shots fired back and forth but I'm proud that we never got involved with name calling and what not. It was potentially some of the best drama our server had seen but it never went public. They got 3 Naxx bosses and we got none. Both through Huhu in AQ40. About 2 months into BS, they imploded and we, in all our "noob, zerg-guild glory" are as strong as ever.
your hat may be nice, but I have the little white tank top that says Legendary right across my boobs. I win. (or more correctly, H wins)
