world of warcraft zone, molten core

Your Epic Gaming moment Contest

We’ve all had them, the tale that you tell your friends and maybe your children. It might have been a game you have been trying to beat and finally defeated that last boss. Perhaps you were going for an achievement that was really hard and finally got it. Sometimes an epic gaming moment can just be a really great night gaming with friends, but often it is taking down another player online or in person in versus competitions.

My Story

I had a lot of epic gaming moments, but one that really stuck out for me was in World of Warcraft. I was in a guild with a number of friends and we decided to start fresh on a new server. This was still early in WOW, so there was no expansion yet.

We had gotten to Molten Core and have been trying to beat the end boss for some time. One day the guild leader said that today was the day we would beat the boss and so we started the fight and as we began he played this over the Ventrilo channel.

Sure, it was geeky, but we loved it and it did get us focused and fired up. Not only did we beat the boss, but we beat it just as the song was ending, it was awesome, it was perfect, for me, it was epic.
