Well, I logged in on Saturday night a bit bored. Nothing was planned in the guild. I was going to go visit all the Elders but didn't really feel like it. Someone said he knew a pug group that was going to AQ40 if anyone wanted in. I thought about it for a while. I thought how I'd only ever seen 2 bosses in there and that was on my rogue and that I never dreamed I would go and see it all.
I thought that my guild either wouldn't go, or we'd struggle even at level 80 and it would be a tragedy. I decided that I'd give it a try - what the hell - it was Saturday night - surely a girl could go off on her own once in a while and have some fun.
There were 8 of us. It didn't feel good, but I arrived just as they got to the last bit of trash before boss one. A Green crystal dropped. I waited to see how others rolled. They needed, so I did as well. I WON! All those raids with 40 people in and never getting one - and now I have one! Woo Hoo. I have a silly bouncy bug thing that induces jumping.
We moved on... and got to the boss. Raid chat went
Me: "He splits and you need to kill each bit"
RL: "Let's just give it a go and see"
Me (thinks to self) ... "oh dear, if this fails I am so out of here"
It didn't fail. We killed him very quickly.
And so it went on - all the way to the Twin Emperors. They were the first real challenge. I began to have a few disconnect problems. Not pretend ones - real ones. For some reason our internet kept dropping out or messing up or something, but I kept going off at stupid moments. I offered to leave, but they wouldn't let me and we kept going. By now the group was up to 15 of us. We killed the Emperors.
We moved on to the most thrilling sight I'd seen for a long, long time. I'd seen videos, read stuff and all sorts, but never actually been there. My heart was in my mouth.
We started. It was going well. Then.... I disconnected.....Nooooooooooooooooo.
Time passed as I frantically tried to get back in... I managed it, but it was too late - he was dead. I was gutted. All that effort and finally getting there and I would have nothing to show for it. But... I checked my achievements and there it was "Temple of Ahn'Qiraj: Defeat C'thun". Hurrah! I'd done it.
I want to take my guild back now, preferably on a night when my internet isn't playing up. I also want to go back and do all the other places and get my Classic Raider achievement. The rest I almost have done for real on my rogue, Lorienne (all except Nefarian), but it kind of feels like I should do them with Seph as well.
