The Four-Man-er

So a few weeks ago the weekly raid was to kill Sartharion. Our guild had suffered through a slowdown, mainly caused by winter holidays and vacations, so there weren't enough online to fill all 10 slots. Actually, there were only 4 of us, and we didn't feel like pugging anyone. So we went in alone, just the four of us.

It was a revelation, really, a bit of a surprise to find out that we could actually do it. We are not a full time, hard-core raiding guild, so our gear, albeit good, wasn't the BiS type gear. But very slowly and methodically made our way from trash mob to drake - to trash - to drake.

We made it through all trash and drakes and stood before the beautiful dragon, or is it drake, I can't tell the difference. We were about to head in when we heard the chime of somebody logging into vent. A fifth.

He came, we killed Sartharion, we turned in the quest and got our 5 frost emblems. The four of us who started were a bit sad that a fifth came in to take away our achievement, but he was a guildie and we love him. Denying him would have been wrong. Still, I wonder if we could have done it? I think so.

At the end somebody commented that OS should be made into a 5-man instead of a raid. I'm all for it. After all, it can be done...and rather easily at that. I admit that the 1,2 or 3 drakes up thing might be a bit tougher for a 5-man group. Maybe add two more slots and make it a 7-man epic dungeon.

Then I logged off and listened to Opera music. And before any of you guys out there think that's boring, do you have any idea how many girls out there find that romantic in a man? Not all girls, of course, but so many in my life that I lost count. Good thing, my wife wouldn't want me counting other women anyway.

Awww. I don't know your guildie, but honestly I think you should have tried to explain to him what you were doing. He would have understood. And if you after many wipes thought that you couldn't do it on four, you could have increased the group size. Well, it could be a future project: to challenge yourself and see just how few you can be. Mind you, Onyxia in the old version used to be soloed by some classes before she was removed and then returned... Just for the fun of it (and a huge amount of gold).
