Our foray into heroic Nighthold continued through the central plaza where we rushed down a staircase and came upon a broken bridge surrounded by what appeared to be pooh water.  At the end of this broken bridge, we encountered the colossal doom lord with the popped collar, Krosus.  Never backing down from a bridge boss or a half-body boss (our guild is still debating his place), we quickly engaged.  This one was for Tirion...

This kills brings the Old Guard to 5/10 in heroic Nighthold.  The simpler mechanics of the fight were a nice change of pace for our raid team though our first kill was another we-all-die event.  Time for the tougher ones....

The Old Guard continued into heroic Nighthold finally climbing up the stairs out of the basement and sewers.  There were many trash packs just getting to Spellbinder Aluriel.  It wasn't just about reaching her but it was also about clearing enough space so we could finally pull her.  

This kills brings the Old Guard to 4/10 in heroic Nighthold.  She was the first challenge for us in the instance and was not a cakewalk for our team.  Not a huge challenge but just enough to get everyone in the mindset once again of remembering what it takes to work a progression fight.  It was pretty good.

Last week, Nighthold opened up so we put on our finest gear with enchants to head in and see what we could do about the whole Nightwell, Elisande and Guldan situation.  We carefully snucked through the sewers of Black Temple Nighthold and came upon a huge scorpion...  Well, more specifically, heroic Skorpyron.

A decent starter to the evening.  A bit like nibbling on the free bread or eating a packet of sugar while you wait for a meal (hopefully without the wrapper).  After Skorps, we ran across a bridge and encountered some mobs that made us understand how mob packs feel when they deal with our DK tank Tini.  With the mobs down, we took on heroic Chronomatic Anomaly.

An interesting fight, a bit chaotic with the time elements.  Heroism with the Speed: Fast buff will always be fun.  Awesome shaders.  We pushed on, looking for more.  And we finally found it... We found cake!

Heroic Trilliax was an okay fight.  It'll probably be the one fight everyone will remember that spinning cutters don't always have to spin in the same direction.  Plus the cake!

These kills bring the Old Guard to 3/10 in heroic Nighthold.  Not too bad for the start of a new raid instance.  These first three bosses are just quick checks to see if everyone in the raid is awake and remember their keybindings.  The real meal starts up the stairs past about a dozen trash packs with more waiting behind them.

xx That about wraps it up for now

Last night, the Old Guard took a swing at one more fight in mythic Emerald Nightmare and managed to take down Elerethe Renferal.

Unlike Ursoc, we found the fight was simply about understanding mechanics and responding properly to what is going on.  It wasn't too bad but at least for me personally, I still don't like the fight in any mode.

This kill brings the Old Guard kill count in mythic Emerald Nightmare to 3.  Not bad for only about a total of 3 raids spent in that difficulty mode.  If only it would be that easy...  Perhaps someday we will return back to try to get more down in mythics but our sights are set on heroic Nighthold..!

Last night, we continued our diversion into mythic Emerald Nightmare and settled on tackling Ursoc.  It took a bit of work but we eventually knocked him down in size.  This is for our raid members that had to step out so we could downsize the raid to fit into a mythic.

The kill gives the Old Guard 2 whole kills in mythic Emerald Nightmare.  Will we get another kill this week before Nighthold opens??
