Mythic Jaina

She took 325 pulls for US 64. I have mixed feelings about this tier honestly. The first 8 bosses were rather underwhelming in difficulty. Felt like a mad dash to a giant Ice Wall. Really would have preferred to have a more gradual ramp in difficulty. Though... to give credit to Blizzard, it's hard to get the balance right.

This encounter was both enjoyable, and incredibly unenjoyable at the same time. I think Blizzard missed the mark on what RNG can do for difficulty in an encounter. Not being able to see Icefalls because of a fog mechanic isn't hard, that's just poor encounter design. Despite the annoying RNG the fight was pretty fun, and the kill was incredibly hype. We pulled out a rank 6 execution on our kill with no unintended deaths. Really clean.

The state of Battle for Azeroth has been pretty contentious. I am of the opinion the out-of-raid content hasn't been this bad since Warlords. I am at least thankful that raiding continues to be rewarding and exciting in WoW. The state of the game has definitely had an impact on the community, creating undeserved stress on players and guilds alike. So many people that genuinely love the game finding themselves full of resentment towards it. I hope Blizzard can turn it all around.

I am super grateful to all our raiders and friends, both in and out of the guild, that have helped support us. We continue to strive to do better and to learn from each and every hardship. This tier was no exception, as we certainly faced some hardship. I am very proud of this team and how we finished given where we started.
