After several weeks of attempts and multiple different raid compositions, we finally found the right mix of people and strategy on Sunday night to down the former consort of Malygos:
We bit the bullet this week and extended last week's RaidID in order to get right in on attempts. Our time to get an ICC clear before getting hit with a pretty substantial setback is fleeting.
After the Sindy kill, we had about an hour to start learning the Lich King fight. I think we managed to give it 4 attempts, the best ending around 50%. The current roadblock is learning the Val'kyr/Defile dance. Once we get that down, I think we'll be in really good shape.
Despite the fight now being available for months, I've still managed to stop every strat vid I've watched before the last 10% is shown. I've also managed to avoid watching (both via the 'Net and the statue in Dalaran) the cinematic that plays after the Lich King's defeat. I know the overall gist of what happens, but I'm still holding on to actually earn the right to see it.
My realm is one of those that's down all day today. But the same group that downed Sindy and started on the Lich King is planning on going back in tomorrow night. Hopefully to finish the job.
