I'm solo in my guild, and in raid, I've unlocked expert mode for both Rugal and Geese. Now BS Nameless just got me past 25% damage on Rugal, so I'll be able to unlock lunatic by the end of the day. Until then I was only able to do a bit over 20% damage so I couldn't solo him. Nice.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
