2009 Retrospective

Looking back on what my 2009 was like.

  • Ran my first Heroic at Level 80, utgarde Pinacle. It wasn't pretty.

  • Ran my first Vault of Archavon.
  • Tanked Naxx10 and had 31k health fully raid buffed.
  • Grinding Sons of Hodir rep
  • Battling for a Tank spot in Mal Katai
  • Mal Katai blows up. Spent most of the month trying to figure out what to do. I had two offers, one from my old guild of Heroes Inc and one from Salvation which had formed from a bunch of my Mal Katai friends. This is hardest decision I've ever had to make in regards to WoW.
