The raiding weekly on my server is to kill Sartharion. We formed up a team and found that we had 14 people interested in going. On a lark we flipped it to OS-25 to see if we could 14-man the 25-man. It turns out we could. Actually.. with 14 people in the 25-man content it made it feel almost as difficult as OS had been when we first tried it as a 10-man raid. Some of the raiders even got the achievement for completing the dungeon with less then 21 people.
I suppose the next part would be to do OS-25 with ~15 people with drakes up. I wonder how much raid DPS is necessary to do OS+3 Zerg on 25 mode.
I had a moment while running OS.. I thought to myself “But wait.. this is supposed to be hard.. I remember when this was hard”. Raids and dungeons get stuck in my head. Some are labeled as “hard” and even though my gear/skill/guild has progressed they’re still labeled “hard”. So when we go in and we take it down without a struggle.. I’m constantly stunned and surprised. In my head I’m still thinking “But wait.. this is ‘hard’.. it shouldn’t be this easy”.
I suppose after face-smashing in ICC for a while it’s nice to go back to some of the earlier content and roflstomp it.. if only to prove that we can.
