Fist pump for mediocrity

Bam, H Hagara down. I'm stoked. Unreasonably so. It got me thinking about the "Eitrigg is dead" vs the "I love Eitrigg threads", and I can't help really being reinforced as to why I love this server and why I defend it.

Downing this boss makes us 5/8 heroic at a 15% nerf, but it doesn't feel like 15% to us. We are a group of average players who are friends and family. We have barbeques at the 4th of July and get Drunk on New Years together. We wipe. A lot. We have to invent new strats because we're never good enough to do the existing strats. We cheer boisterously when we finally get that boss we've been working on for weeks like we're pros.

And in our minds, I think we are pro, lol. I honestly think this is what defines Eitrigg and why I have been here for 6 years. I'm proud of every person that works towards something bigger than themselves, or who actually takes time to attempt and fight for accomplishments for the server. I'll forever be happy to be a part of it, looking up from right smack in the middle.

haha, that's a good question Holly, and one we've asked since Kara. It's just the way our group works. For our 10 man, some people can conceptualize one fight and have a tough time on another. I've learned to ignore "this fight is easier than that fight" comments, because it's incredibly subjective for us.

We tried Hagara, it was a mess of people running everywhere, and we knew up front it would be a challenge for us. Zon'ozz felt challenging because of the amount of throughput we needed, but the coordination was less striking. It was much easier for us to sledge-hammer through the incoming damage than for us to learn to "all run and avoid junk".

HEH, me and a hunter kept running around during ice pahse. everyone else stayed near the first crystal and moved into the dome if they got the slow to get dispelled. and then they moved on to the next one. i thought that hagara was kinda fun... considering dragon soul has been nothing but a disappointment for me so far. I cant really raid like i used to and im only really on during the day which blows.

I has life. I has boss kills.

I see nothing wrong in spending a good 2-9 weeks of raiding every day to have the next 2-6 months of your WoW raiding only once every Tuesday.

Im pugging over on Alliance side & finding im getting 8/8 reg in a similar amount of time it would take me to get 8/8 LFR.

Sure its 15% buff, but still, 3-4 hours, full clear, sunday afternoon, few beers, pretty chill.

If you are more progressed then somebody you must have no life. We're only 6/8 h and i actually saw someone from perfect dark say in trade that everybody in this guild has no life and lives in their mother's basement. Cuz apparently raiding two days a week for about 6 hours a week is too taxing for us to actually be functioning human beings.

Clearly there is no life to be had once you raid, pfft.
