So, just thinking back, with a new expansion on the horizon to past days playing (and.... still deciding if I'll be returning at the moment, quit during 5.3 - nother story tho) and to past achievements.
What would you consider your proudest moment in WoW? Mention when you started to give some perspective
Easy one for me I think:
Playing since day 1 but by almost the mid-end of TBC I ended up as raid lead of a 25m guild.
I'd "led" quite a few fights by this point but all were just executions of the tactics planned by our old GM. (Snegl <3)
Come to Archimonde in MH and he'd basically quit so this one I'd laid out.
So fixed the groups (north/south/east/west so the doomfire things could be controlled) and we'd had a few tries.
Got close a few times but we'd not quite got him
We had a lot of dps down and he was close (either 3% or 3% over where the script kicks in and kills him, I forget) and melee we probably had 4 melee and a couple of casters left. The casters were dropping like flies and the melee area was getting covered in doomfires.
I called a "melee out, just get out, spread out and get the fires to follow". Lost another couple of dps but it worked, the area around the boss cleared up (meaning melee weren't dying to fire), called the melee back in and finished him off.
For the first raid kill that was "totally mine" to be Archimonde, especially with the call near the end definitely stands out.
