Zul'Aman 5, Apanthrope 1

I got into Zul'Aman for the first time last night, with Origin as my host. Long story short: 5 boss wipes, 1 boss kill.
Frankly, we didn't have the DPS, the heals, the know-how, or the organization to tackle ZA. Several of us had never been there, and several were also undergeared. (Some, significantly.) We had heart, though, so we tried. And tried again. And again.

But it wasn't enough.

We did manage to down Nalorakk, the Bear, on our third attempt.
In the end, it was a long night and we walked away thoroughly beaten. But I did get to learn a few things and get a feel for the place, so it wasn't a total waste.

And yes, I am still walking around with my name and title visible to me. Give me a few days — I'm sure it will wear off eventually.

Don't worry about ZA, it's basically somewhere between T5 and T6 and definitely T6 if you try to get the chests.

Btw, try to keep your shadowguard on you throughout the entire fight. It did 2k damage for a cost of one global cooldown or basically as much as mind flay but taking only half the time. I've been trying to hammer the same thing in my skull but I still keep on forgetting it. My best has been four reapplies on Brutallus where it did nearly 10% of my damage :)

I generally drop Shadowguard so that the extra damage doesn't keep any mobs on me. Such as the Skeletons in Nightbane. I guess if I was running with a group that I really trusted to peel off the adds, then sure. I'll have to keep that in mind. Thanks again!
