Back for our second raid night after the holidays, we decided to actually put some legitimate time on Malygos, supposedly the pinnacle of the WotLK entry-level raids. We had spent a bit of time on him one day during the holidays and took him to Phase 2 with 8 people, so we knew the basics and it was only a matter of practice before he hit the floor.

We did have to step out to go practice the Aces High! daily quest to make sure everyone knew how to handle their drakes in Phase 3, but by then we were breezing through the first 2 phases with little difficulty. It wasn't many attempts after that we got our rhythm down and knocked Malygos out of the sky!

That kill earned the majority of our raiders their "Champions of the Frozen Wastes" achivement, so to celebrate we took 12 people to kill the 25-man version of Sartharion. That resulted in an easy one-shot in which we shaved a minute off ou...

Once we'd cleared Naxxramas, we decided to focus on the remaining WotLK raid content, which we had previously left untouched. That took us to the Obsidian Sanctum, home of Sartharion of the Black Dragonflight.

A couple of us had fought him before in PuG 25-man raids and reported back that he was incredibly easy, and as a guild, we can confirm that this was right. There were only 8 of us available for a raid, so we decided to kill all the drakes before engaging him. Trivial doesn't even to describe it, as we promptly one-shot him and distributed his loot as off-spec pieces.

Unfortunately, this killpic is not from the first kill, but from the second kill, which had only 7 players (1 healer). On the first kill, we discovered he was secretly a bear in disguise!!

...okay, we had actually left ...

Within just two raid lockouts, we finished clearing Naxxramas with a two-shot defeat of Kel'thuzad this past Saturday.

We worked really hard in preparing for Naxxramas. Most of us knew it as the pinnacle of raiding in the original WoW, and treated it with the appropriate respect. We ran heroics constantly and farmed ridiculous amounts of consumables. We worked hard to give ourselves every advantage because that's how we go about raiding.

It turns out that we were (way) overprepared. We spent two days in Naxxramas in our first week and cleared all 4 wings. The vast majority of bosses were dead in either one or two attempts and none of them gave us any real challenge.

Since we had such an easy time during our first week, we decided that we'd repeat the experience the following week while we farmed for frost resistance gear for Sapphiron, who we figured we would focus on in our 3rd week in Naxxramas.

Week 2: Thursday saw us with an impromptu Arc...
