ICC 25 - Guild run on April 16

Hello everyone,

Thanks to those of you who made the run today in ICC 10 man - we had a great time but also took our time due to describing fights and figuring out what to do to gain the 10 man achievements. Had a really fun time as memories of old battles faded in the simplicity of our current 'higher dps days'.

I think there is quite a bit of interest out there to get back into ICC - obviously not hardcore, but to rack up some of the achieves and for nostalgia's sake. I am wanting to aim at starting this 25 man run @ 1 p.m. MST on April 16. It will be going up on the calendar so please, please sign up with the appropriate status for your character. I would also love to see people post in here what character they will be bringing as it would be optimal to have our tanks and heals worked out ahead of time.

Sound good? Hope to see a full guild run happen!

We did manage to most of the 10-man achieves (except for Dreamwalker - not sure what happened there, Lanathel - which requires at least 2 run thrus - Sindy - yeah right..need to work on the mystic buffet and LK - which needed to be done on heroic mode) We did down the LK on our last attempt, and it would be excellent to eventually down him on heroic for the guild achieve. That being said we had a significant number of wipes even on regular just learning the mechanics - the damage wasn;t bad but we needed to learn how to deal with crumbling edges, orbs, valks, raging spirits and the ever nasty defile. Hopefully we can get a bit more experience with the fight and then blitz it in hard mode.

I am planning on updating this thread with each fight broken down for simple mechanics plus each possible achievement and what is needed. I'll do all the research ahead of time instead of holding up the whole raid while Anita (bless her heart) looks around for a description. Honestly a larger part of it had to be just trying to remember every facet of each fight. Onwards and upwards!

I'm new and still feeling my way around EVERYWHERE. =)
I'm curious though as to where I must go to sign up for this or any raid. Will I find it in the ingame calendar? If so, what I'd like to do is bring an alt (Raid ready Resto Druid) that isn't in the guild?

Thanks in advance for the response and forgive me for my Noobsauce dripping all over the forums.

The in game calendar is correct. Almost everyone that is coming is level 85 as this is mostly an achievement run. I will see you in game!

We will be continuing the raid lock for ICC 25 this Friday starting 8 pm server time. I really hope we can have as many of you back as possible! We will be starting on Rotface, then PP, etc.

Hope to see everyone there!

I was excited to hear you extended the raid so we could finish it. However, b/c of prior commitments, the earliest I could be home on Friday would be 8 my time, so 9 pm ST. I was really hoping you would pick the same time as last week on Sat.

I hope we can work something out b/c I'd really like to finish that off.

Hey everyone,

Sorry but it looks like work is somewhat swamping me as of late - won't be doing ICC stuff for probably another 5 weeks or so. If someone else wants to run this I will not be offended in the least!

*highly suggest learning PP fight for either 10 man heroic or regular 25 man if someone will be trying this out. That fight is just wicked :)
