the things you do when no one has fraps =/
which would have been nice really, because not only was it awesome, but I think we did it the best way possible and I would like for others to see how to do it.
The main thing is you can solo pull Varian without Genn. Just stay at max range, stand in the door leading from the garden into the throne room, and pull Varian, your tank can do it np. Then take him out into the garden and into the library. Holding in the library is important because it's an easy room to defend, provides strong LOS against ally, and doesn't have a lot of guard spawn.
I then had the ranged DPS stand to the left of the door and the tank to the right, as you look at the library from the garden. This was not only to prevent group CC from ally but to also let ranged DPS pick off ally as they ran in the door. Holding Varian tight against the wall with the door makes it so ally have to run all the way into the room to get to us. If you hold him on the back wall ally can stand in the door, or even the garden, and shoot you.
Then just hold the door with some good PvPers and do what needs doing.
We had one hiccup in that the female Battlemaster got aggroed, no clue how that happened. I had her already marked, as well as every elite in the keep, so it was easy as "DPS on moon" and down she went.
Everyone did what they were supposed to do splendidly and it was very very fun.
Big thanks to EO again for bringing the big guns.
I went on my alliance priest and shouted "ME LOV E YOU" and watched trade to relay back when they would find out.. Wasn't till king was at 50% before people started talking about it.
Trade was funny...
They were still asking what was going on when he was at less than 5%

Ally would be best toon to record with, don't have to worry about getting killed, or dragged away from your shot.
I'm not sure we'll go again anytime soon. I would love to, but we did it once and I don't want to be a nagger to get people to go again.
Not saying EO wouldn't go again, I just don't want to impose on them, and so haven't asked.
I do feel like we can do this with any 40 man pug group. Just so long as people pay attention to what they're supposed to be doing. Having a small disciplined group this attempt made it possible. No one messed up. Everyone was tight. We only had one stray pull, the Battlemaster, and I feel like she might have been leashed to Varian in some odd buggy way.
thx for the SS's you posted, always nice to see what ally thinks.
It was kinda odd to do it at peak hours and not have any show up at all till we had him at 75% or so. We only had to switch DPS off Varian and onto the door two or three times.
I feel like if we hadn't pulled all DPS off the door and onto Varian for the second BloodLust at 15% we could have held the door longer and we would not have cut it so close, would have taken longer though.
I only took two SS's after we died and I was running back:
Also the whole, "Where are they?" "The Library" "Where the heck is that?".
Apparently I'm a punk in the eyes of Skill's addons :(
