That's right; the Red Devils snuffed the Lich King! Actually, this was our second kill - the first having occurred while I was on vacation. We had cleared up to LK each week since that first kill, but either failed to down him, or never managed to get another group together. This time, all the planets were properly aligned and we assembled a group with the sole intent of killing the Lich King.
It wasn't a one-shot, not at all. But it was very impressive and inspiring to see each of our attempts go significantly better as our team pulled together and finally executed a perfect kill! I am confident that the Red Devils will continue into Cataclysm as a successful raiding guild.
On a more personal note, I managed to achieve 100,000 kills just before the release of Patch 4.0! This was a milestone in my PvP career and as it turns out, a very timely one. Patch 4.0 has not been kind to hunters in terms of PvP. While hunters have not generally been a feared class since "vanilla" WoW, this latest version has made us extraordinarily easy to kill. The switch from large mana pools to the much smaller focus with its very limited regeneration has rendered us toothless in PvP. Blizzard seems to be confident that balance will be restored with our new abilities at the 85 level cap, but they have been so wrong so often that we hunters are highly skeptical. Most posts on the current beta seem to confirm we have good reason to be. Perhaps it is time to dust off my druid and learn to play all over again?
