Yes, that title means exactly what you think it means. FH went into ICC last night, powered through 11/12 Hard Modes and got ready for a night of work on LK. Attempt #1 of the night saw him down to 22%. And 4 attempts later he was dead. On a Tuesday. With an hour left in our 5-hour raid night. During an enrage. With healers dpsing and CDs popped. With an entire vent full of players screaming, pleading, and groaning all at once. Even now, I get goosebumps just writing about it–the kill was that thrilling. US #38, Realm First. I don’t care that it’s just a video game, I don’t care that it’s only pixels and I don’t care that it would look ridiculous on a resume. That feeling of accomplishment we all shared last night is why I play.
So, this morning I can finally make the post that I’ve been waiting to make for weeks. And I can finally give you all the inside scoop on what it takes to kill one of the hardest (if not *the* hardest) boss I’ve ever killed. So here it is: How to Kill Lich King, the Flowchart. (I’d highly recommend looking at the PDF version, as it’s more legible than the jpg.)

A special thanks to everyone on BDF who took the time to whisper me or anyone in FH to congratulate us on our kill. I’ve never before been a member of a server first, and the community response was absolutely overwhelming. (And grats to our roll hax GL who actually won the mount in an open roll; there is no one more deserving of epics than the bloke who puts up with it all.)
