With Yogg Saron dead, we begin our (10 man) journey into hard modes today. I am extremely excited with the prospect of getting to what I would call real progression. We had our first taste of hard mode last night when we finished up the week with I Choose You, Steelbreaker (Who knew hard modes gave Emblem of Conquests? lol)
Looking through all the hardmodes, the plan is to do XT -> IC -> Auriaya -> Thorim -> Hodir in that order tonight. The logic behind this being, skip Orbit-uary as I am not sure how challenging 4 towers is and the thought of getting cockblocked early is very demoralizing. Freya/Mimiron/General/YS hardmodes look a lot more challenging in comparison to the aforementioned fights so we’ll leave that to next week, when we’re a bit better geared.
Our main goal naturally is to unlock Alagon but being achievement whores, we’re also looking to complete the Glory of the Ulduar Raider meta achievement to earn a Rusted Proto Drake. We’re doing half decent with 4/13 complete, I’m confident that we can complete the achievements slated for today but the later ones worry me quite a bit.
