Last weekend the WHU guild raided Orgrimmar and slaughtered Garrosh (along with a bunch of hordies). In the spirit of Ogrimmar-raiding, we all donned Gordok Ogre Suits and drank Elixirs of Giant Growth (the WHU has been gathering those ogre suits for years) and then we went back to what remains of the dam in Loch Modan to celebrate the death of Garrosh.
With the giantness of our ogre selves and amidst the chaos of everyone packed in the throne room, it was hard to see the pets (or Garrosh for that matter) so we didn’t get to see the madness of hundreds of Stampedes — but we did get to see the glory of all those Murder of Crows going off at once!
For this event we restricted it to hunters of level 80 and higher. The original plan was to launch a surprise attack (thus the misdirection about doing something in Pandaria). We ported into some hills in the southern area of Durotar, flew out to sea, north over the water then inland to Org. Our plan was to burn Garrosh down as quickly as possible, and as such we instructed people to avoid PvP and focus on the boss. It ended up being more of a slow bake than a burn, but the pets had no problem handling tanking duty (just watch Garrosh’s target change about every second!). Alas as the horde gathered defenders they picked the raid off slowly and we wiped with Garrosh under 25%.
In the officer’s channel on vent one officer with a horde spy in Org reported the horde trade chat bragging about killing us off. This motivated us to regroup and try again, as one WHUvian said in chat “We would have had him if you let us fight the players.” This time surprise was out the window (in fact a couple hordies were flying over us keeping track of our position and warning Org as we moved) but we formed up a small group of 8 hunters that were dedicated to PvP while the rest focused on Garrosh.
We charged back in and got to work — cleared out the guards in short order and the wee PvP group sat in the entrance and butchered wave after wave of hordies trying to get in. At times they organized themselves a bit and made it past the corridor, but the PvP group picked them off very quickly while the rest chopped Garrosh up into wee pieces.
This time horde-side trade chat was a bit different:
“There are like a thousand hunters in the throne room!”
Grats WHU on a very epic kill!
