    I keep getting kicked and lagged back outside of gate range. I am able to relog though.

    It takes me about 10 minutes to relog and I cannot move once I do. However, the chat works fine. I usually get kicked within 2 minutes of logging. Its actually kinda funny.

    I managed to get on just long enough to see the bugs and the big anubus looking things. It looks like one of the level 62 elite bugs is about to go down. However, I just got kicked and that might have been the case for everyone else too. The bug doesn't seem to hit hard, it just has a lot of hit points.

    I managed to take one screenie of the dead Ashi Colossus, which I will post when I get home. I spent some time fighting the Regal Colossus but I was getting way too sleepy to endure the repeated corpse runs. I did log on right at 4 AM server in time to hear the NPCs declare the battle at an end.

    The brief experience in AQ20 was fun if only for the break in the lag.

    I hear the other two Colossi eventually fell, but no one got the subsequent quests due to lag or bugginess. That sucks considering it took 9 hours to kill all three.

    Overall impression of the event: great concept, too bad the Hyjal hardware couldn't quite handle it. Still, I had fun for the most part until I got too tired.

    hey MSCers, it was fun to join up with you guys briefly in AQ20... to die repeatedly but at least live in a lag-free environment for a bit.

    Indeed all 3 collossi fell, but most people only managed to get the quest for the first one. The other two quests didn't show up until just before the event ended and the questgivers despawned.

    I hear there are some new quests available in Cenarion Hold now, in the typical manner of recent quests for 'phat lewtz', these require certain rep levels and lots of farming to turn in a bunch of items for good rewards.

    I'd like to try to set up a co-op AQ20 run with you guys at some point if there's interest. I'll post in another thread as I talk with UC folks some more, but I am still interested in setting up weekly runs of 20-man raid content with you guys and we'll probably need one other guild. No details yet, but the idea is that if we can get 30 or so people interested in this stuff, we can at least guarantee one or two runs per week with maybe a few people sitting out if there's particularly high attendance that day. I'm not sure how committed MSC is to other 'alliances' these days, but we can discuss this later after seeing how your run with Amicus goes.

    I'm interested. It's probably safe to say I'm not the only one. I'd like to get the Vaulted Secrets set (if that can be done with AQ20).

    Fo' sho'

    The AA coop has potential to consume our Saturday mornings every week. We'll see how that pans out.
