Three Dog Night.

Actually, quite the opposite.

Last night Darkhoof when to Onyxia's Lair, where the guild downed Onyxia. Then we regrouped and went to Zul'Gurub, where the guild downed Hakkar in two and half hours. Following that he fought a few battles in Warsong Gulch and Arathi Basin.

Downing Onyxia is expected. We've been doing that since our 2nd or 3rd visit to her lair, not counting the week Blizzard made her invincible. We brought a guest Warrior along so they could forge their Quel'Serrar sword. We've been bringing guests along for the last couple of raids. Other guilds charge like 500 Gold for the privilege to go to the Lair with them and get the sword made. We don't want money and are just happy to help strengthen the Horde side. This is obviously a boon to the Warrior in a small guild that wants the Quel made but his guild can't down Onyxia to get it. With his Quel he'll be able to better tank, their gear will be improved and soon enough they will be downing Onyxia too.

Moving on to Zul'Gurub, downing Hakkar in just under two and half hours was a first for me. I was also trying my hand at DPSing for a change as well. Typically in that amount of time we've reached, maybe, three of the bosses. But last night we meant business. And we just mowed the place down. Not one wipe, and five or six dead tops at the boss fights. I was doing a mix of healing and fighting, befitting my new talent build. And when the Runed Bloodstained Hauberk dropped, I got to bid on it and I won! That replaces my Earthfury Vestments with some proper fighting gear. Here is my profile by the way. Oh, yes, when the Seal of Jin dropped, since I am an Enhancement Shaman I got to roll on it. I won that too.

Then, hot on the heals of getting back my Sergeant Honor Rank by doing some AB last week (just two nights), I reentered Warsong Gulch and Arathi Basin and put my new stuff to use. A guild warrior was there, he with his new Zinrock, Destroyer of Worlds, loot from the same ZG run, boys and their toys, and a guild priest. Win or lose, it was fun. And we were up against some hardcore BG/PvPers. A guild known by name for it. It was incredible to be rocking their world when a Mark of the Chosen fires, a Crusader Enhant fires, Flurry is on, and Windfury procs.

It's hard to play a 20 alt when you can have so much fun with a level 60 character still.

P.S. The new alliance race. I like it. I was thinking I was going to have to play a Blood Elf. But now I'm thinking, I've got Elves. I have got to play a Draenei. It's like a Tauren, but less beastly. (More space alien than cow.)
