Tonight the guild is going on a fun run through Black Wing Lair. Many of the guild is not even attuned, as they weren’t playing pre-TBC. Imagine that! I’m going to dust Ravven off, my warlock, and take her for old times’ sake.
I was hesitant to see BWL again, simply because it’s one of the raid instances that I’ve always loved. I would go as far as to say that I think it’s probably one of the best instances that Blizzard ever designed. I’ve no desire to see Naxx again (especially with the revamped version coming up) and I’d rather poke my eye with a sharp stick than ever see AQ40 again, which is hands-down my least favourite instance. I didn’t want to ruin my memories of BWL by waltzing through it with a bunch of 70s…all of that time, all of that work, made trivial by the raised level cap and better gear. It would make me sad.
This afternoon, though, I started feeling a bit excited about it. I think it will be fun – going with a fun group of friends, seeing it through the eyes of people who have never seen it before. It will be great. :)
