As has been said many times now, this is a great fight. It's hard as hell, requires top-notch gear and intense execution from the entire raid group. Before AQ40, I wondered how Blizzard was going to really challenge raid groups, and whether it was still possible to design fights that would tax the mana reserves of BWL-geared healers. I'm glad to see that I was wrong.

This is a fight that will be fun and profoundly stressful as a healer for a long time to come.

We died a lot this past weekend before getting them on our second try last night.

I love AQ40... I love it so much. ;_; You have no idea the happiness it brings me after 4 years of Everquest and well... The earlier raid content in WoW. Which is pretty fun too but... It's just not the same.

Thank you to everybody that hung in and wiped with us on all of the days. Aitro, Wodin and myself are all proud owners of some of the best weapons in game currently thanks to you. We couldn't do it without the tireless effort of so many people. Those who weren't there, your sacrifices did not go in vain and I can not thank you enough.

And congrats to Aeternus also, they deserve as much respect as us on their kill.

Did you guys kill Viscidus while we weren't looking? :(

Sweet jesus, that is nice. Your character belongs on the box art or something. What weapon did you pick up anyway?

Grats on the kill, EJ.

Quite nice. I'm assuming he's OH'ing that since he's a Combat Rogue?

Edit- Hm. Maybe not...

We are old and need our sleep (I do anyway).

Jokes aside, totally deserved for the amazing dedication and hard work they put in.

As Wodin is often wont to point out to me, he is combat.

Dagger combat - the sword gets swapped to MH in certain situations. Dagger combat has been better to me though and the AQ itemization shows that Blizzard obviously wants us to use daggers.
