As a society we are not always interested in seconds.
We prefer firsts, the first man to walk on the moon, the first man to swim the English Channel
, heck even the first woman got plenty of notice in her day.
And yes, Nihilum
did managed to down Lady Vashj first
, but I have been following the story of the second guild to kill the snake-headed wench, and I am happy to report their day has finally come.
For those of you not obsessed with minutia the way I am, the guild Method
from the Sylvanas (EU) realm killed Lady Vashj on May 5th
Something happened though that makes this kill more interesting than just any old world 2nd
The encounter bugged out and the guild, after all their hard work, lost the chance at looting the corpse.
That's right folks, imagine watching Lady Vashj's corpse despawn in front of your very eyes.
I know I would cry wet, salty tears.
Naturally members of the guild contacted a GM, but to no avail. It was a whole day before the guild finally got resolution. They did get a mail message though that told them that their loot would indeed be delivered. World of Raids says Method received a Krakken-Heart Breastplate and Gauntlets of the Crestfall amongst other things. Congrats to them for getting their just rewards. If you're interested in learning more details about the fight, Method will be interviewed by WoW Radio on May 13th at 12:30 EST. I'm sure they'll have some fascinating insights.
