SSX & GoE Down Razorgore!

Big Congrats to all of the SSX & GoE for yesterday evening, we have now downed Razorgore the Untamed, the first boss in the 40 man raid instance - Blackwing Lair.

(Once again, for all non WoW players - Blackwing Lair is the next level up from the Molten Core, hardness wise. Molten Core being the other 40man instance that we have already fully cleared.)

Awesome job!
