ZA; we were sick to our back teeth of Kara (though we continued to run it) and had decided we were going to give this sucker a whirl anyway. Well, the first couple visits were going well, bear boss was nothing, etc. It was the gauntlet.Holy fsck, that fscking gorram gauntlet.Let me explain: I'm a warlock. And we were going to learn how to do this sucker the hard way. So my job was to SOC the birds when they came down alongside what anyone else could pull off. I was mostly it that night for aoe, I seem to recall. (Warlock + SOC = EXTRA WHEATIE-EATING THREAT ACTION GO!) Which meant the first night we were working to get the hang of this, I was dead about every two minutes, then spent time running back in to catch up with the group still in the middle of the gauntlet, hitting the aoe again, and, generally promptly, dying. Which is, yes, the way of it until we got healing and threat management back in grips.It made my teeth wriggle in rage, after about the fifth attempt - not my team, just that fscking gauntlet.We used the exploit for a while after that - up until lolpatch and its hotfix..

Before I had started raiding in WotLK I got a tell asking me to tank Sarth for a PUG. The tell wen't something like: "we've allready cleared the other bosses so it should be quick!" ...after the second wipe, a guy I had pugged heroics with before who I assume threw my name in there as they searched for tanks whispers me and says: "dang that's the 5th time, I'm almost ready to call it" and he informed me that the reason I was invited was because the previous MT (a druid with 25k HP) had been demoted to OT and the previous OT (a DK in leveling greens and blood spec) had been kicked. So we re-organized, and agreed to give it one last shot. I was the last man standing...Sarth had 2.5k hp when I died. So close, yet so far. We called it after that.

"It made my teeth wriggle in rage" — lmao, that's my new favorite expression.
