After poking his dozens of eyes with sharp and pointy weapons for the whole day, Cho'gall now lies dead.
It was time to put our gameface on - after a few short (and relaxing) farm raids and a day off, For the Horde managed to snag the first kill on Cho'gall. Congrats to them, but damn does that suck! Just as you think you can afford some slack. With that in mind, there was some really serious catching up to do, as we had only dabbled a bit with some potential tactics for the fight. The pressure was definitely on and you could feel it in the raid.
Luckily, things started clicking and the tries started to go better and better. After yet another trash respawn, we took a very much needed small break - we had already raided for almost 10 hours in total. On the next pull and even with quite a few mistakes early on (and consequently, deaths) it pretty much looked like a wipe. Man's best friends since the 60's, soulstone and combat res, managed to turn the tide and we were able to slay Cho'gall. Pretty damn close, especially with some people dead. It most likely only happened because Lappé could start in Lunar Eclipse after the trash clear. Love your owls, people.
Sometimes it's definitely worth doing "just a few more pulls." 8]
