I’ve promised myself that I wouldn’t start with the “the King is dead, long live the King” line. It’s getting old and it’s not exactly a world-first kill. Besides, I’m late with this post due to real-life swamping me with work.
On 18-07-2010 my wife managed to down the Lich King with her guild! Note that this wasn’t a guild-first kill, though. Nonetheless, I am very proud of my wife, who performed excellently during this night. She really deserves the kill and title.
I’m impressed by how fast she picked up on the mechanics of the fight. After three-shotting Sindragosa (and you don’t want to know how many times she’d wiped on Sindy before) they managed to down the Lich King in only 5 attempts. Of course, this is all still on normal mode, but it’s impressive anyway. Most of the rest of her group had already downed the Lich King before, I imagine that helped quite a bit. On the other hand, it’s really easy to screw up and wipe the entire raid with one simple mistake. I actually saw a Defile cover the entire platform, that was hilarious!
So, even though some may argue that she was carried through, I still believe she truly deserves to have killed the Lich King. Now, all that’s left are heroic modes and the Lich King kill for her resto shammy alt.
