I went in with the new guild last night for a re-clear of Nighthold and stayed in for the Gul’dan fight. Even though I had seen up to the last part of Phase 2 before, I was still so terrified I’d really screw something up and be asked to sit. It ended up being no where near as bad as I was thinking, P1 and P2 were exactly as I had seen and P3 ended up being a lot easier than I thought.
It was an awesome feeling to finally get the goal I was determined to get but bittersweet in a way because it almost feels like I didn’t earn this as this wasn’t the team I progressed through all the other bosses with. I’m so incredibly glad I did get the kill and the Cutting Edge achievement on him though after spending so long working my way through all the bosses. I’ve seen a whole lot of Nighthold across the 4 different levels of difficulty:
- 46 Skorpyron Kills
- 43 Chromomatic Anomaly Kills
- 41 Trilliax Kills
- 42 Spellblade Aluriel Kills
- 40 Tichondrius Kills
- 39 Krosus Kills
- 38 High Botanist Kills
- 33 Star Augur Kills
- 37 Grand Magistrix Elisande Kills
- 16 Guldan Kills
Those numbers equal a hell of a lot of time spent inside the one place. It helps that Nighthold is so incredibly beautiful so it’s a great place to spend many hours.
Killing Gul’dan marks the end of this tier and it took 3 raid teams and 2 factions to get here but now with 2 weeks before Tomb comes out, it gives me a bit of time to enjoy not being in Nighthold as much and time to start looking at the next set of fights.
I’m really excited to see Tomb next but I really wonder where I’ll be by the end of the next tier. My new guild seems quite nice but it hasn’t grabbed me the way both Deadline and Misanthropy did right from the very start so who knows what the future brings. Hopefully a whole lot more raiding though.
