One of the MNK raiders sent Christmas presents to everyone on the raid team via in-game mail. This included some spiced apple cider, a stack of flasks, and a Gordok Ogre Suit.
This tickled us all so much we decided to bring our Ogre suits to our ICC raid (except for poor Bella, who missed the memo) – specifically, we decided to wear them for the Gunship Battle.
Alas as it turns out you can’t actually use the rocket packs with your Ogre suit on, but I got some footage of all all hanging out anyway and afterward put together a short little video of epic ogre (and Bella) raiding. It was big fun.
Overall the raid was incredibly smooth sailing with the team working together really well and moving at a good clip (other than playing around as ogres for a while). We cleared ICC, hit Naxx for the weekly raid quest, then grabbed an undergeared member rejoining the team and took him through TotC for some gear, and ended a half hour early. A nice relaxing 2.5 hour run run, and I felt like I’m really starting to get into the rhythm of the Marrowgar fight now. Nice to see my dps moving up to respectable levels there as I move more efficiently.
Lots of joking around and chatting in vent as well. Who says you can’t move quickly and still have fun!
