Karazhan



That's right, you heard correctly. TheAllianceGuy, on my lvl 77 Draenei Hunter Sevei, finally ventured into the fabled Karazhan, former home of the Last Guardian of Tirisfal, Medivh.

Filled with ballrooms, mess halls, stables, opera halls, a gargantuan library and even a large telescope, it seems like a fitting place for such an important man.



The first thing that struck me about Karazhan, was the amazing atmosphere. It just has 'something' about it, from the moment you enter the instance, you can tell it's gonna totally rock.

As my five-man group ventured deeper and deeper into the castle, we experienced many wondrous things.

Like the Curator. He is so cool, even if he does like the Arcane thingies in SWP (except more pinkish). His voice, is really awesome sounding too:



Or the AMAZ-ing Chess Game. Seriously, very fun:



Right I just wanna say now, Medivh, as sexy as his voice is, he is a fucking CHEAT-er. Every minute or so the Image of Medivh, caresses our ears with some phrase then proceeds to attempt to ream us, in a illegal manner lol >.>

At first I went as the Knight, got killed, then a Footman, got killed, then went a healer and cruised through the rest of the fight. It was a very fresh and interesting fight to me, 'specially seeing as I love chess :D



I also loved the Shade of Aran and Netherspite <3. I was SO tempted to move during Flame Wreath lol. Thankfully, I managed to resist the urge as I wasn't sure if we would wipe ^^.





Netherspite was actually the hardest bit of Karazhan, we wiped three times before we got it down. I was obviously standing in the Blue Beam of Awesome Kickass-ness...then at like 20 stacks of the buff, I didn't noticed the Void Zone thing open up under me and I died in like 3-seconds flat >.>



And finally after like an hour, we got to the final boss, Prince Malchezaar. That's this guy down here:



And then, finaaaaaally, I got the Achievement ^^



WOOHOO!! ^^ I was so happy when I got this :D

Well, that's my Karazhan post, through with only of all the pictures I took lol. Please comment and share your experiences in TBC's best raid.

Ahhh, Kara. I remember venturing in there "back in the day." More recently we visited Kara to take some guildies who'd never been and just have some fun.

I actually enjoyed going in there more after reading "The Last Guardian"... the place will never be the same after reading that. :)

Like Syrana, I also read "The Last Guardian", and I think that's why the atmosphere in Kara is so endearing to me. However, even given all that, I don't think I ever made it to the end. Mr. Malchezaar doesn't look familiar.

I may have been in 3 times maybe? I need to get my mage-booty back in there!

Congrats on the achievement!

Nice work! I have a ways to go before I ever see Kara so this was a nice taste of it for this Tauren.

See you in Twitteroth!
