Kara. Like many other BC babies, I never got further than Kara, both in game, and mentally. I love that raid. My guild were farming it pretty reasonably by the end of TBC, and i had yet to reach 70, as soon as I did, they threw my a pity invite. I had literally never set food in a raid, was geared in greens and quest blues, not an epic in sight. But I read up. Came with food, scrolls, enchanted my gear as best I could, I socketed gems. I even studied tactics. Result? my little fail hunter topping the charts for several of the bosses. Full clear on continuation night, I still farm that place most weeks. Finally got my mount last week off Attumen, hurrah!

My first raid was also Kara, but I hadn't read up on boss fights, brought scrolls, and only had health potions. I had no idea what I was getting into. And I got one-shot on the first pull by one of the spectral horses. It's hilarious now, but I seriously wanted to drop raid in embarrassment. D: I was convinced to stick it out, and then I joined a weekly pug of Kara, which led to ZA, which became a raiding guild. I'm glad I stayed in raid. :)

My first raid was also Kara, though I progressed further than that.The old fart in me looks at Wrath kids much the same way I look at kids born in the 90s though. Like, shouldn't you guys still be in diapers or something? ;) (And I'm sure we BC kids seem the same way to vanilla kids)

Kara here as well! My IRL friend used to raid fulltime and he always talked me into the guild he was in. One day they didn't have an offtank and I signed up. Brought my laptop to my friend and he basically talked me through all the fights. Worked my way with my own guild through Gruul and Maggy post-nerf, finishing BC farming ZA.During Wrath I did all the raids, but mainly pugged them. Ended ICC 9/11, with some heroic bosses. Unfortunately haven't had the time to really finish any raid in Cat.
