Though we did clear up to Illidan tonight, it was a tough push to get it done. Our DPS was great, but we were short a healer for nearly half the run - we nearly called it if it wasn't for some desperate calls to some individuals.

People are getting burned out. Supposedly the patch hits Tuesday. It'll be fun to go back to MM (oh happy day), and while I'm hopeful that the patch will bring the raiders back, the other officers aren't so optimistic. There have been four other guilds just calling it until the expansion. They downed Illidan, so that was good. I can't lie, that was my one goal for the Burning Crusade, and I'm very happy I got to see the guy down. But some tiny part of me wants more.

I really had no delusions of clearing our way through Sunwell. I was hoping to get Kalecgos down (and we still might), but if we don't, you know, I'd still be okay with it. As a guild, we survived the Summer Burnout, and then complete management overhaul. And we didn't fade away - we downed Illidan. I'm very proud of my guild for doing it.

Our plans for Wrath are still a little up in the air. Historically, we are a casual top-end raiding guild. We had tons of raiders that were only expected to show up 75% of the time. Several of the other end-game guilds are beginning to split off into raiding guilds for Wrath, but I don't really like that idea. To me, my guild is my home: I want my friends there, either on their raiding mains or on their alts, not split off in an "alt guild". So I'm hoping that we will just stay together, with just a little more emphasis on keeping raiders hardcore and members softcore. And maybe, just maybe, I can be among the few the people that get to down Arthas :D

I know exactly how you feel. Just the other day, I wrote a post about WotLK blues. =( My guild is getting more and more tense, people are conflicted on what they want before the patch, etc. It'll be alright. Pretty soon, everything will go back to normal (minus all the whining about bugs). =D

No more of this warrior/rogue only bullshit.
