This week has been a huge week.

Firstly, we managed to back up last week's Immerseus kill and move onto Protectors... where we spent a raid and a half min-maxing everything to try and beat the enrage timer.

After we finally managed not to lose anyone to a) Corruption Shock or b) Mark of Anguish, we actually did OK. Unfortunately the only thing I got from the kill was RSI, although the other hunter managed to coin the crossbow.

Going back in earlier tonight, we found Norushen a complete walk in the park compared to the previous night's efforts, making it our 3rd heroic boss kill.

To top off the week, I finally got to Rank 10 in the Brawler's Arena. All in all, a brilliant run for the week before Christmas - I know when I was in a more casual guild, we would have stopped raiding by now. Pretty good turnout for a holiday period, although we did have to use a few people's offspecs and a casual raider to get it done!

Immersed in Heroics

Felt a bit weird getting heroic Immerseus down before getting Garrosh, but oh well - I suppose if he were easy, he wouldn't be the final mob in the raid (or the ex-leader of the Horde, for that matter...).

Thanks to gear (and definitely thanks to familiarity, on my part), we got Garrosh down quite easily on 10m tonight, then did a quick run through on Flex as well. Unfortunately nobody got any heirloom weapons, but otherwise it has been a good end to the raiding week - 2 new bosses for me, plus a bonus minipet! :)

Fully Decked

I am once again at the point where there are no further upgrades to gear, the expansion has been announced and morale is low from wiping to Garrosh after the guild has already killed him (mainly due to replacement raiders - including myself, since I was away for a month during progression - being unfamiliar with the fight).

Yes, I do expect that we will get at least Garrosh and possibly even a heroic fight down, but I'm anticipating that the holiday season (with inevitable raider absences) will put a dampener on raiding progression fairly soon.

What to do in the meantime? Personally, I think it's been too long since I've done non-raiding/Timeless Isle stuff. Top 3 things on the list would be a) old raids (for Achievements or minipets), b) pet battling and c) solo fights (Proving Grounds and Brawler's Guild).

I'm also hoping to get a decent enough group together to go for a full complement of Gold Challenge Mode runs... preferably with a group that knows what they're doing already, because I sure don't for the half that I don't have yet. Time to rack up those Achievement points again! :)
