Yes we did

Yes we did


Yes, we killed the Lich King on 25.

Yes, it took forever.

Yes, my blogging colleagues here beat me to the punch.

Yes, it makes me sadface, but my pride is at stake and I’ll steal back the blog-first bragging rights when Cataclysm arrives. I refuse to be the last player on the team to take down Deathwing!

Yes, we also killed Algalon on 10 man and got our Starcaller titles.

Yes, I’m recruiting more DPS and healers for hard mode ICC 25s.

Yes, work is owning me (but I got a 20% raise!)

Yes, I want to watch the A-Team.

Yes, Lodur and I are going to BlizzCon.

Yes, I’m looking for another BlizzCon ticket.

Yes, I added a cool widgit on the side of the blog that shows latest threads on PlusHeal.

Yes, I plan on revamping the blogs (note the plural) starting with the footer and about page as well as changing the themes a bit. I wish I had my own designer. I’ll be using the Genesis framework for it from Studiopress, most likely.

Yes, I wish I could get into the beta.

Yes, I saw the Priest previews and will add my 2 cents to it.

Yes, I launched a healing and priest centric podcast called Circle of Healing (podcast) with Dawn Moore ( and Kinasthesia ( and vodka). It’s actually 3 priests discussing healing with potential for guests later. Two shows recorded. Details will come later.

Yes, I need more time to do fun blog and forum stuff.

Yes, I want this expansion to be over!

  1. Big grats! It’s really a great achievement to stick to it, defying the end-of-expansion apathy that is spreading. Now you can get a little peace in your mind at last. Enjoy the summer! Reload your batteries! And be the first one to snatch the Big Kills in Cataclysm!
    Cheers for keeping up your spirit, regardless of the odds against you!

  2. YAY! Grats Matt and the whole crew! I bet that was a relief on killing Lich King on 25 man. More challenging Bosses to come on cataclysm, I can’t wait either. So yea as what larisa said above charge up! =D

  4. Nice one Matt! (:

    Agreed on this wishing this expansion to be over, the whole thing felt like an extended 2.4, massively boring…

    Grats Matty! My guild recently took down Arthas 25 after ~165 wipes according to some counts.
    I’ll also be at blizzcon, find the kid with a t-shirt that says “BLEU” on the back and I’ll reward you with a free beer =D

  6. Tankette says:

    Gratz! My guild has been stuck on LK 25 normal for weeks so I am very ready to bask in the glory of the kill that you are enjoying.

    @bleuchz 165 wipes? I’m going to see if I can figure out how many wipes we have had. I get sick to my stomach when I read about guilds that dropped him on the second night of attempts and realize they didn’t even have the 20% buff.

  7. If it wasn’t for me being the 26th man in the raid and fishing in Dalaran at the time you would have never killed him

  8. It may be that we did it behind everyone. But how many guilds can say they did it w/o a Holy Paladin? I am sure a few, but not that many. That does say something for us as a guild. 🙂

    Congrats! Hopefully, you will find what we did, that the first 4-5 HM encounters are on par or simpler than the Lich King. GL on push into HM’s!

  10. Congrats… on EVERYTHING! Sounds like you’ve been hella busy. 🙂

  11. You’re welcome.
