Undying Resolution has finished up T13 as the number one 25 man guild on Elune. That's... phenomenal. The feeling is far beyond my depth of expression; awestruck is probably the best adjective to label it. When Deathwing fell and the achievement spam blew up guild chat, I turned to Beef and whispered, "This is by far the most amazing thing I've experienced in WoW."
(No offense, Shadowmourne, you're still a wonderful milestone!)
As someone who raided sporadically and was more enraptured by lore prior to joining UR, I'm still pinching myself in disbelief. We did it! We worked cohesively to beat the hardest content that Blizzard has published to date, while the other raiding guilds on our server splintered off into running Heroic DS in 10m because it's easier.* This accomplishment is exceptionally kick-butt because a good chunk of my guildmates, too, have never experienced the feeling of being a raider in a top guild. So there was a general sense of wonder in the air rather than jaded boredom. I hope we keep that same sense of wonder, and our drive to accomplish bigger and better things, as we progress in the next tier of raiding.
Bring it on, Pandaville - we're Saviours of Azeroth!
* "Easy" is subjective; I don't look down on people who choose to raid in a strict 10 environment, nor do I personally think that 10m equals automatic easy mode because personal accountability is key. But your mileage may vary.
