We are prepared, Illidan is down!
Even with the highest of expectations I was still very surprised last night. Not only did we down Illidan, we did it with a one-shot! Our raid leader first talked us through the phases, worked out some positioning issues for phase 3 and 4 and then we just downed him on the first attempt. Our MT died at 3% but that didn't stop us, it just clicked.
The rest of the evening was spent clearing Hyjal. That leaves us at 9/9, 4/5 so far this week and I'm guessing for Archimonde and perhaps some Sunwell tonight?
