I remember (a million years ago...) when our guild was pretty far into raiding MC and BWL, we attempted one of the dragons - I believe the one in Duskwood - and were very quickly wiped :) Took us a few attempts, but eventually we got one of 'em down. Back in the day, with limited raiding opportunities, these dragons were pretty popular. I also recall newer players not knowing just how powerful these dragons were and attempting to engage them only to get one-shot instantly xD
I love reading these. There is always something like makes me go "Wow, it was that long ago".
The 4 dragons were super fun fights! The one in Duskwood was a popular fight since it was so close to the alliance. It was fun telling noobs to not go up that hill and you'd watch them go anyways :P
I remember when the Wrath pre-launch event was going on. I miss the zombie armies.
"Silithus revamp" lol
i remember the day achieves came out. been chasing them ever since!
You were level 40 and questing through Duskwood? Even back in Vanilla, the zone was meant for levels 20 through 30. The first dragon of Nightmare I saw was in Duskwood too. I was on a twenty something toon, a Hunter, and had been told it was a special mob that you could tame as a hunter. Let's just say it didn't go so well.(For the record, I was 8 at the time, so I was a tad more naïve than now.)
Ah, the dragons. I had started playing WoW pretty recently when they came out, as like all newbies a lot of things were complete mysteries to me. So I get to the infamous glade and see the massive dragon there while questing with a friend, and behind the dragon, a portal of sorts. It made perfect sense to try to find a way to bypass the dragon so that we could reach the portal and explore the wonders that would lay beyond. My buddy got one-shot and I did get to the portal, which was of course a placeholder, and I was stuck there with a massive dragon blocking the exit. Repairs were actually not cheap then to boot, so that went... not so well.
Silithus Revamp .... LIES, all lies i tell ya!
i'm not sure exactly when i started playing wow (because i initially had a US trial account before realising there was an EU version) but i do remember that i started playing during the echoes of doom patch so i'm taking this as my unofficial 9 year anniversary!my getting into the game was caused by me being bored in my granmas house when i was 12 and thinking it would be fun to try out that "nerdy" warcraft game.what I experienced that day as a fresh toon in a -- looking back on it-- unusually active mulgore has never been matched in my gaming experience since but a little bit of that magic still trickles through whenever i log in <3
Dragons... Yeah my guild was farming Nature Resistance gear for Ahn'Qiraj, so the drops were important. We had alts and warlocks stationed by the spawnpoints and it was always a race to get there first - us or one other guild, or the hordies. First full raid engages, the second tries if first one wipes.
