It is a week and a half in, and we have downed five of the eight bosses. Thanks to Sara's help, I now have screenshots to share with everyone.
In the first week, we downed the first half of the raid. Quite an accomplishment for our first step into a new raid! As of the end of week one, this was how things looked:


Morchok(Picture missing. Fail two weeks in a row)

Our third week of raiding has closed and no new bosses have been downed. On the plus side, we have made a huge improvement in Gunship. Last week it was a crying mess, and this week we had the actual boss down to around 40%. I have full faith that his ass is grass next week!

Happy 2012! The holidays are behind us, and Gnomeland has gotten back to raiding. Last week was awesome, as we tore it up! We have come back to raiding with a FORCE! Highlights from the end of the raiding week:

Warmaster Blackhorn
KaPOW! Blackhorn finally down!

Spine of Deathwing
After being astounded at downing Blackhorn, we literally tear Deathwing a new one. Well quite a few new ones!

Madness of Deathwing
To end the night on a high note, we gave Deathwing a poke. It didn't end well for us :P

Tonight's raid was AWESOME! Seven bosses downed in one night, with some decent attempts at Madness. Thursday is devoted to mastering and downing Deathwing once and for all! Let's get that screenshot! :)

We spent Thursday on Madness. With our powers combined, we got him to around 10%!

Tuesday was slow but humorous. Gratz to Light for finding a way to survive the Platform Of Fire!

We ended Tuesday on Ultra, so that gives us plenty to do on Thursday. I foresee us putting our serious hats back on and getting some sweet sweet weapon upgrades!

Raiding progress update for Jan 19th and 21st:

January 19 (DS)
No screen shots for the night. We got to DW again, ending at the 4th platform. Let's do better next week! :)

January 21 (FL)
We went into FL guns blazing, and did great! Six bosses one shot! We got pro and FINALLY downed Rag without El. Even better, Khrys got his staff! :D Gratz Khrys! Some highlights of the evening:

Min, the super tank!
Min was booted into lava, but that didn't stop him! He amazed us all by continuing to tank! Who's afraid of lava? Not him!

Khrys, with heart!
After the excitement of downing Rag, it was time for Khrys to complete the last stage of the quest by ripping out Rag's heart. Once some silly healers realized he couldn't manage a lava swim alone, he returned from the lava victorious!

Waiting with bated breath!
After FL, everyone rushed to SW to watch Khrys complete the quest and get his staff!

Almost there!
Getting the staff took a little while, but we got to enjoy Khrys flying around on a platform and talking to a dragon.

Raiding progress update for Jan 24th through 31st:

January 24
It was a bit of a struggle, but we managed to get through seven bosses.

January 26
We spent the night working on Madness. We didn't down him, but we came close several times. We definitely get an A for effort!

Jan 31
What a night! We spent our usual three hours and downed our usual seven bosses. We one-shot Morchok through Ultra, then staggered a bit on Blackhorn and Spine. With our raid time being up after Spine, we took a vote to see who wanted to poke Deathwing and who wanted to wait to Thursday. Everyone was an eager beaver, so we continued on. To everyone's surprise and excitement, we downed him! Deathwing's dead! We did it! :D
Fine Print: An epic finale with just a few lives lost

With Dragon Soul fully cleared on Tuesday, we have Thursday open. It is still being decided what we will do. Come next Tuesday though, (gear willing) we are going to start heroics! Progression HOOOOOOO!

Raiding progress update for Feb 1st through 19th:

Feb 2
We downed Deathwing on Tuesday, so we had the day off. :)

Feb 7
We cleared 7 bosses with only two wipes! Deathwing gave us some trouble, so we saved him for Thursday.

Feb 9
We came in on Deathwing and one shot him! Another Thursday night of freedom! :)

Feb 14
Valentine's Day and some people thought their significant others were more important than raiding. Pfft. Raid adjourned to Thursday.

Feb 16
We finally had a solid ten! Feeling quite powerful, we decided to give Heroic Morchok a go. Nine attempts later, we got him! Pretty good for a first try at a new boss! :) We finished up the night at Hagara.

We came back in to finish off Dragon Soul for the week. We finished up with only 3 wipes, and only one of them was on Deathwing! (a heretofore unnamed raider being a n00b about using a button macro may have been responsible)

With two heroics down, we set our sites on Hagara. She has proven to be one tough bitch, but we gave her a decent pounding. We pushed through her special attacks and got her to 65%!

With Hagara continuing to be a thorn in our side, we decided to shift our focus. We started hitting on Heroic Yor'sahj, and whacked him down to 56%! Take that!! :)

Raiding progress update for May 10th through June 7th:

May 10
We gave Skittles a few more tries, then cleaned up the rest of DS.

May 15 & 17
Due to attendance issues, we took the week off. Most of us spent the week blowing things up in D3! :)

May 22
After a week of Diablo, we were able to get people back into DS. We went back to face the dreaded Skittles boss, and we got him to 47%! Yay! :)

Another clean-up Thursday.

May 29
Ever persistant, we were back in and back at hammering at Yor'sahj. With Light's wonderful leadership, we finally downed him! Our third heroic boss down! Tier 12 progress tied! Yay us! :D

May 31
Still in a celebratory mood, we came back into DS and gave the rest of the bosses a pounding.

June 5 & 7
Welcome to 25% nerf! We had some attendance issues on Tuesday, so we tabled the entire raid to Thursday. Better late than never, we demolished DS on Thursday! We started late, yet still ended early. What makes that totally awesome is that we downed all three heroic bosses in that time. One shot on Yor'sahj! Welcome to being on farm! :)

Still excited about our Zon'ozz kill, we decided to try a new heroic. We chose Warmaster Blackhorn, and went at him with gusto! We ripped through it, and got not only to phase two, but also wore Garona down to 28%! What a week! :)
