Friday, we headed into Emerald Nightmare. There wasn't an expressed goal beyond clear as much as we could. This will be the last run until we go back for heroic mode later in the summer, unless people let us know they need it.
As an added incentive, we would not do battle cries. We would do raid wipe excuses, but I was going to pick three people, at random, and you'd have to sing your excuse. I don't know if that was a motivating factor but we had cleared all the outer bosses excepting the tree, by break time.
Cenarius was quickly downed and that brought on Xavius.
Yes. Stand there. Contemplate your inevitable demise. We'd never downed Xavius in a one-shot.
That was achieved.
We can say we have normal Emerald Nightmare on farm. It does present a bit of a problem for raiding this month as we had this coming Tuesday set aside to finish the nightmare. We've decide we we change that to Nighthold and we'll begin working towards Gul'dan. This will be a fresh run and we will hold over the lock-out throughout the month. We were able to clear the first wing last week.
Thanks, everyone. We're doing quite well for ourselves.
