Better Late Than Never

Ordo Serp, with some help from a couple pugs and friendly QSS folks, had our first full clear of Naxx this weekend. Not exactly a cutting edge achievement, but still one I'm pretty proud to be a part of considering that 30% of the raid had never seen anything beyond Arachnid Quarter and the beginning of Plague Quarter before this weekend. We managed to get Patch down with plenty of time left before enrage (not quick enough for the achievement but still good for a first kill), Four Horseman went down on the first try, and we even brought down Kel'thuzad on the first pull, despite our add tank dying three times during the fight and having to get the adds tanked by the MT and a cat turned bear. I think all four of our druids used their battle rez during the fight, and for the last 30% there were only 5 or 6 of us alive.

Filling out the group turned out to be much easier than I had expected. Rhus and Girarde were able to call upon some people in QSS, and I put us in LFM for Naxx. Before I even had a chance to look at who all was available I was getting tells from people. Only one bad apple in the bunch, and he seemed like a nice guy, just had no clue how to play (definitely was an eBay toon). The experience has given me hope that we will be able to do this weekly, and maybe even build up a few relationships in the process. It would be nice to get a consistent group of 10-12 people so that not only can we clear Naxx, but also try to move beyond into Eye of Eternity and Obsidian Sanctum. In my perfect world we'll be like a little miniguild that will conquer all the 10 man content as it becomes available.

As anxious as I am to get into Ulduar I think our next big goal should be Sarth 3D. I think the shared title we'll get will really give a sense of accomplishment, and it would be nice to get each of us a cool mount.

Gratz guys, I'm disappointed I had to miss out on that run.
