Hello everyone and welcome to day 23 of my 30 Day World of Warcraft Challenge that is counting down the days to the release of Shadowlands! Every day in November I will be posting about World of Warcraft based on the prompt list below. Today’s prompt is ‘raid boss’ and I’m talking about raid bosses I will never forget.

I’d love for you to join me in my countdown to Shadowlands and you can do so in any way you wish. I wanted this challenge to be open to all players whether they be raiders, casual, new to the game or veterans. It’s also completely open to interpretation as to how you respond to the challenge; write it, draw it, vlog it, post it on social media, whatever works for you.

Day 23 – Raid Boss

I started raiding in Vanilla as a very new gamer and I remember the first time I joined a 40 man raid to kill a boss. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. As time went on I got more experienced, I changed, my main changed and the years passed by. I’ve experienced  many raid bosses as current content. I’ve cursed at them, I’ve told them to ‘just bloody die already!’ and I’ve felt that amazing feeling when you finally triumph over the sodding thing after weeks of wiping on it. Today I’m sharing with you three raid bosses who I will never forget for various different reasons, some highs and some lows.

Countdown to Shadowlands Day 23 - Three Raid Bosses I will never forget: Teron Gorefiend

Teron Gorefiend

This bastard is most definetely one of the lows! I could not get on with the ghost mechanics of this fight and spent every single one of these fights praying that I didn’t get picked for it. I even did my best to sit out for this fight as much as possible, that’s how much I despised it. When I did end up getting the ghost debuff I had to get my fiance Chris to take over, which was rather awkward when we were both in the same raid! Thankfully he was a healer at the time and playing a priest too so I could just swap to his character. One time “I” (in otherwords Chris) did a really good job and one of my guildmates commended me. I had to confess that it wasn’t actually me!

Countdown to Shadowlands Day 23 - Three Raid Bosses I will never forget: Yogg Saron

Yogg Saron

There have been many bosses over the years that I remember wiping on for a long long time, to the point that victory seemed so far away. One that I remember feeling really sweet was finally defeating the final boss in Ulduar; Yogg Saron. Ulduar is one of my favourite raids and it’s also a long one, so it had been a long road to get to Yogg Saron and then it took a while to get the kill. It was a sweet victory.

Countdown to Shadowlands Day 23 - Three Raid Bosses I will never forget: Alysrazor

Alysrazor

This boss is filed under raid chaos and general fun times for me. It was another period in our lives when both Chris and I were healing. In this fight the raid splits at one point, with each of the tanks going to either side of the field. As we were sitting in the same room and could communicate easily we would be focusing on the tanks. The problem was that the tanks did a lot of running about, so we were constantly running back and forth, back and forth. What our guild never heard was us cursing the tanks and shouting at one another ‘where has that bloody bear gone now?!’ ‘I don’t know! Wait, I’ve got him, he’s over here!’. Then there was a mad dash for feathers in the middle of it all.

While it was frustrating and stressful at times, it was also hilarious and I think of it fondly. It was the good type of stress, the type that challenges you and keeps you on your toes. It definetely meant that Alysrazor became a boss I wouldn’t forget easily.

Over to You

Next up tomorrow’s prompt is about all those random minor NPCs that we interact with briefly and then never give another thought to… or do we? Find out what I mean tomorrow 😉

Day 30 will be…

Day 30 is a freebie and I couldn’t decide so I put my ideas up for a vote on Twitter. After three weeks of votes the choice has been made by you my dear readers and on day 30 I’ll be sharing with you my ‘Shadowlands Glow-Up appearances’! As an extra bonus I’ll also be sharing all my brand new characters too.

Thank you to everyone who took part and voted!
