Progression kills are like oxygen to raiding guilds. If you don't get some from to time to time you die. You could almost feel a palatal change in Mal Katai last night when Gruul went down. Everyone was buddy buddy, everybody was happy, all was right and well with the world.
That tell was better than any epic I couldn't have gotten off of Gruul last night. People's eyes are being opened.
It seems there is a movement in the guild to go to Void Reaver next. I wonder though, if we shouldn't do Magtheridon. Mag is something of a Raid Coordination check, and we'll need that kind of coordination if we hope to make headway in Serpentshrine and Tempest Keep. It could also highlight some of the issues of the lack of a steady raid roster. Also, since everyone thinks he's "easy", they might not be as prepared as they should be.
I'm still sitting around 2500g for my epic mount. Halfway there.
I'm even more sure of my decision to go Engineering with everything I learn about the next patch. Blizzard is really making it a nice profession. My buddy Raist has been super helpful in gathering mats. I've got most of the stone I need, just need a bit of dense. I've got all the Mithril. Now comes the rough part, Thorium, Fel Iron, and Adamantite.
I'm going to have to clean house on my bank to get some more space to hold all this stuff.
Lastly, thank you to everyone who voted in my alt poll. You people are just as undecided as I am. Ironically, Origami from Heroes Inc made almost the exact same post in his blog today.
