So you’ve been using your keys to good effect. You’ve probably gotten most of your dungeon set from the level 70 5 mans. You might have tested your prowess in some heroics. Now your mind is turning toward bigger and better things…to whit…Karazhan. Let me rhapsodize a moment. I’ve been to Mount Hyjal and seen the sewers of the Black Temple before my raiding guild went asplodey. Karazhan is my favorite of these raids even still. So much lore, the ambient music is catchy, and the boss fights definitely take on a bigger feel than the ones you have encountered in 5 mans. Now you might reasonably ask “Briara, I don’t need the key to get into Kara anymore, why should I do this quest line?” (more…)
According to Wowjutsu, most guilds with enough level 70 players will eventually make it into Karazhan. And this is a good thing, both for lore junkies and people who want to get some PvE epics. While I’m not in Hyjal/BT end game guild (we are working on becoming one though!) I’ve been raiding for a long time now, and Karazhan remains one of my favorite raid instances. How do you know if your guild/alliance is ready to begin?
