That place will forever be engraved in my mind. Not because of how many times we ran it. Not because of the 10 man stuff. All because of one of the most backward runs a few of us ever did in the place.
We had a Shadow Priest, a Holy Paladin, a Ret Paladin (me), a Prot Paladin and a Rogue. The Rogue was on his way from Stormwind. So what did we do? We started without him. No big deal, right? Well if we were smart it wouldn't have been.
We had our Holy Paladin tanking. I was trying to heal. The Prot Paladin was DPS'ing his heart out and the Shadow Priest was trying to help me heal and CC with Mind Control. When our rogue buddy got there he remarked "What the hell is wrong with all of you..?" We kind of realized what we were doing after that.
That place will forever be engraved in my memory because of that incident.
We also almost set the record for a UD Strat run once when they were doing that timing thing as a Fury Warrior, Holy Paladin, Ret, Hunter and a rogue. We were near the end though and we wiped. So sad. D: I blame our warrior. If in doubt, blame him.
... BECAUSE HE'S EVIL. He got me killed/stuck in BGs SO MANY TIMES.
We were in WSG once. (Keep in mind, this is when I had Satellite internet so disconnecting was very common for me) I had grabbed the Horde flag. Warrior tells me "Follow me! I know a great hiding spot until we get our flag back!" So I follow him. He leads me behind a tree. Requires odd jumping to get there. He gets out just fine. When we get the flag out... I couldn't get out. I was stuck with the horde flag behind a tree for like, five minutes.
Another WSG game I DC'd in the middle of the field with the flag. I got back on, vent reconnected and I was met with our friendly Holy Paladin going "Yzak... you are forever banned from carrying flags." I asked her how long and in chat "NEVER EVER AGAIN!"
They apparently kept me alive the whole time it took me to log in again wondering why I stopped in the middle of the field.
Man... I really do miss those days. I remember winning an AB against a premade by like, 10 points with them and we were all just yelling in vent "HURRY! POINT! COME ON!" "CAP IT!" "COME ON!" <Alliance wins> "YES!" "EAT THAT!"
And the fortress of totems. Oh god. D: There was a Shaman who made premades on our realm who would camp the flag room in WSG. I swear, they were all shamans who just put down totems and camped the room hoping for kills. You'd head up top, look down below and TOTEMS. TOTEMS EVERYWHERE!
I remember I was an engineer back then. I tried to MC the flag carrier once and BoP him to retake the flag. Did not work so well. It backfired and I was his ally. Holy Paladin was with me and so it was 2v1. She was like "GG YZAK. G FREAKING G."
We also had a total unison moment. We were defending stables and two Warriors charged us. One charged her and one charged me. We were like, in perfect unison beside each other. We both sealed and auto-attacked. We both were 50%~ life so we healed each other at the same time. We both stunned the warriors at the same time and judged them. We dropped Consecration at the same time. We even finished it off with Hammer of Wrath at the same time. It was beautiful.
I remember I was riding through STV with the warrior friend. We encountered a literal raid of level 40s. There had to be at least 30 of them. We took out a good 20 of them before they got us. We raced back to our bodies and owned the rest and the rez'ers after that though.
That same warrior got stuck on the rock in the middle of BRM in the lava. We don't know how he made it that far. He charged some priest and lagged out. Next thing we hear in vent "Guys... help me." We look and "HOW THE HELL?!" We swam out, made a line of Paladins/priests and healed his ass back to land without a single death.
Oh the memories. Oh the giant post...
