Ulduar or Bust

Tomorrow night we have an Ulduar raid scheduled. This will be our guild's first time in, and the first time for many of us as individuals.

In TBC, we as a guild never made it past the first tier of raiding. I never saw anything outside of Kara, Gruul, and a pull or two into SSC. I'm glad we're in a position to be moving forward progression-wise and taking our raiding to the next level here in WotLK.

Hopefully we can get the sign-ups and manage to make the run happen. Most of us are geared for it (in some cases overgeared for it) thanks to emblem purchases, so, once we get the hang of the fights, we should be in a position to really make some rapid progress.

My goal, lofty as it may be, is to be able to walk into Icecrown-10 very soon after it opens. Even if we're still mopping up the last few bosses of Ulduar and ToC, I'd like to be able to make some progress in the defining raid of WotLK while others are also progressing through it.

From a blogging standpoint, I'd love to be able to help the community. Right now, I'm relying on recommendations from the community when it comes to tanking fights. If I'm involved in progression as it comes, though, I can be one of the bloggers making the recommendations based on my experience tanking the "current" content.

As long as we can get the personnel to come along, I think that we, as a guild, are in a position to make some solid progress over the coming weeks.

It's exciting. I just hope it plays out.

It actually looks like we have enough sign ups. Although we have 2 people who signed up who really arent optimal, but if they show up we shouldnt have to PuG.

:D

Very nice. I don't know how long I'll be going since some crazy left-coaster decided to schedule it for 9:45 my time, but if we get a full guild run that would be really exciting.

Have a blast, Mis. I have tanked and dps'd every fight from the entrance through Mimiron in 25 man and it's a lot of fun. Don't get disheartened easy, just pound away and you'll get far. Most of the early fights are just dps races with easy gimmicks anyways.

Flame Lev + 2 towers or bust tonight. =)

@shieldbreakr: Thanks a bunch and best of luck to you as well. Takes a lot to get me disheartened...spent many a night banging my head against Moroes back in the day, so I know how progression raiding feels :)

Good luck to you guys! Ulduar is a fantastic raid full of very interesting encounters. This week we'll be visiting General Vezax and Yogg-Saron the very first time. Hope you'll have a blast in there just as much as we did.
