Today was supposed to be the day that Highmaul, the first raid in Warlords of Draenor, opened up. Our group was going to down the first 3 bosses and call it a night… at least that was the plan.
Instead, Kel’Thuzad went down. It appears to have been the result of another DDoS attack as well as an issue with Blizzards’ Authentication servers that affected multiple realms. The result was that, instead of logging in and raiding at 8 PM Pacific my guild couldn’t get in until closer to 10PM Pacific… at least about 5 of us did. The others… well they never were able to log in.
Oh well. We pugged it… with minimal success. We’ll try again on Thursday I guess.
On the plus side, I’m liking the feel of Highmaul. The first bit of trash is a nice mini-boss, and then you’re thrown right up against Kargath. Nice introduction to the raid – I hope it continues to go well, assuming I can actually get into the game on Thursday…
