The Raid that Wasn't

We didn't manage to get a group together for Naxxramas on Raid night. Too many of our players had real life aggro. Healers sick or with broken computers, dps sick, etc. It happens.

Instead, we held tank tests for Batra and Takkarian. SURPRISE. Batra made it to the def cap. Much congratulations.

I think Takk is even more excited than Batra, lol. Takk says he still doesn't want to tank, even though we generally prefer him.

But anyway, Militia says that anyone who can tank Pit of Saron should be able to handle Naxx in their sleep. Based on stats anyway, completely disregarding the coordination and such that is par for the course in Naxx. So we all sign up for H PoS with Militia dps'ing and we get a random healer and off we go.

It goes... better than last time? When Ann and I did it with Batra a couple weeks ago, it went terribly. This time, we survived Garfrost and Ick even though we wiped a couple times. Then we went on to wipe on trash. Several times.

Militia took over for the run through the gauntlet.

Tyrannius gets downed, everybody is happy. We only had 4 or 5 different healers quit on us. But... Batra didn't pass.

Now, there's a huge difference (in my opinion) between H PoS and Naxxramas. So I'm not sure we established anything other than Batra isn't quite yet ready to tank H PoS. But Militia was able to offer many helpful tips as an experienced tank.

Half of which I'm sure went in one ear and out the other as far as Batra was concerned.

I don't think this has been mentioned yet, so here it is: I love having Militia as our raid leader.
