Real Progression Begins Today

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.

    A piece of advice on Thorim’s hard mode: it is exceptionally easy to get to (we triggered it accidentally), but it’s more a matter of managing Sif when she gets out. If your healers are prepared for it, you shouldn’t have any issues (unless you’ve got bads standing in AOE cone). Definitely one of the easier ones.
