First Time in Karazhan
I've never done much raiding before - a few times into Zul'Gurub, back in the pre-TBC days. Saturday evening last, though, the raid group my guild works with were arranging runs into the new, no-attunement Karazhan. We had enough people to run three simultaneous raids, each with ten people. For me, at least, it was a momentous success.
There were some post-patch oddities with the Omen addon. The Prince fight had apparently been made a lot harder, and we made it through anyway. None of the rest seemed terribly difficult, and I think we hit a total of about seven of the bosses. At the end of it it all, Wormson had got: an Adornment of Stolen Souls, a pair of Voidheart Gloves, a Tirisfal Wand of Ascendancy, a Talisman of Nightbane, and a Nathrezim Mindblade - all fairly massive upgrades. I'm in massive DKP debt, of course.
It was also a lot of fun. Our raid leader really knew his stuff, never seemed to even get flustered, let alone panic, and kept us thoroughly amused throughout the four and a bit hours of the raid.
I'm looking forward to the next few raids, and I suspect that the number of bosses, and the fact that the raid hits a different subset every time, will keep it feeling different, rather than being the same thing over and over again.
