About a week ago, names were secretly exchanged and WoW bloggers everywhere began to formulate what to write for their yearly Blog Azeroth Secret Santa guest post. This year, Redhawks from Redhawk’s Gaze is my Secret Santa, and this post has two of the things I love: lists and lolcats! Thank you for your post, Redhawk, and I hope you have a great New Year, in-game and out!
2011 – Expectations and Resolutions for a New Year of WoW
A Secret Santa Guest Post from Redhawks from Redhawk’s Gaze
WoW players, especially raiders, are always looking forward to the next thing. Whether it is the next raid boss kill, the next Tier of content, or the newest gear, we have our vision always set forward. As we are approaching 2011, I thought about looking at what I hope is coming down the road for WoW and moonkins in general as well as some personal resolutions for the New Year in terms of WoW.
For the past few weeks, my guild has been trying to down the Lich King on 25-man. Like many guilds right now, we are experiencing a lot of pre-expansion burnout. A lot of our raiders have left for one reason or another, and some choose not to show up for reasons we don’t always understand.
When we do have a full raid, we head to the Frozen Throne. We’ve only made it to Phase 3 one time. Sometimes it’s an issue of timing and practice; sometimes it’s an issue of negligence and complacency. Regardless of the underlying issue, though; the symptoms are the same. In my first “Five” since my hiatus, I present to you the 5 ways to fail at Lich King!
*Note–While I won’t be mentioning anything I would consider a spoiler, I know there are those of you out there who want to go into the Lich King fight with little to no knowledge about the experience. If this describes you, read on at your own risk!
