In terms of raiding in WoW, the common consensus is "Do, or do not. There is no try.". Apologies to Yoda, but I beg to differ.
I have no real idea of how hard the fight is. I know is that it was hard for us. We all had a huge buzz from struggling and succeeding. Far more than if we had one shot the boss.
I normally raid once a week. Due to real life - last week I didn't raid at all. Achievements are not required. Attendance is casual. If you need to leave, then you leave (even if some others lean harder than they are allowed to). For two raiders, it was their first time stepping into the raid. For almost all of us, it was the first time we 'completed' this encounter, with only one raider having completed it on another toon.
As a group, we wipe very well. I contributed to more wipes than I care to remember, but have the consolation that I was not the only one. However, each evening, and on most attempts we moved ever closer. Dodging the wind-wall on
In Dark Prophecy we prefer Becket to Yoda. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
