After just over 3 weeks of progress, Fallen Avatar…. well, falls! Well done to everyone involved and after our gains on Maiden of Vigilance we rose another 50 ranks to 295 in the world and hot on the heels now of a top 3 spot on Silvermoon, merely hours away. That remains our target and we have every confidence with our roster strong, and our raiders motivated we will push on and finish the tier on a high! Bring on Kil’Jaeden!
Another week, another boss, if you can call Maiden of Vigilance that after the trials of Mistress Sassz’ine. But another positive step for us towards our goal as we gained over 100 ranks moving us to 345 world, and solidifying our top 5 spot on Silvermoon. We look forward now to the challenges of Fallen Avatar!
Following a somewhat slower progression stint on Augur we picked up the pace again with Elisande and now Gul’dan. Gul’dan turned out to be a very long and interesting fight. Mostly about learning the fixed pattern and reducing deaths and damage taken rather, with only a few DPS checkpoints. The end of Phase three did feel a bit anti-climactic after 12 minutes. Given the fix-pattern approach it’s a boss that is easy to re-kill and we look forward to farming him for mounts over the coming months. We ended up at rank 261 for the Gul’dan kill. That is below our goals and expectations – and as the guild looks forward to ToS we’re looking at how to improve on […]
After clearing Emerald Nightmare – we’re now in Trial of Valor progressing. Last week saw us besting Odyn and we’re currently working on Guarm. Generally Trial is a step up from EN in terms of fight design and a nice change of pace. Still our main aim is Nighthold which seemed very promising with a lot of entertaining fights on PTR.
We had the pleasure of doing some more normal beta raiding. Another look at Star Auguror Etraeus and High Botanist. Both really enjoyable fights. Seeming well designed with mechanics that make sense and interact in reasonable ways. We’re quite looking forward to seeing these on live. Unfortunately Spellblade seemed broken. We were hoping to get some more testing on that boss. Overall beta raiding continues to deliver! Much love and appreciation to everyone who showed up for some Friday night fun!
In our quest to defy the burning legion and show up prepared we have been spending time in the Alpha and Beta raid testing. At times a rather grueling experience when server stability, login queues and broken mechanics. At other times an interesting look at new fights, a change of pace from the dull uninspiring farm that is Hellfire Citadel after close to a year of farming. Recently we had the pleasure to test Xavius, the end boss of Emerald Nightmare, again. The room design has us divided in camps on thinking it’s cool and thinking it’s rubbish. But the fight design looks like it can become challenging on mythic depending on tuning and we’re speculating if there’s a […]
As part of our preparations for Legion we have just now launched our new website and forums. The new site does give us more flexibility than before and we hope to be able to provide more frequent updates about our progress including streams where appropriate. We’re also exploring what other ways we can use the new web. So stay tuned for further updates. As a current raider or potential recruit you should click on the forum-link on the top and create a new account on our forums. The old one will be shutting down on Wednesday this week. For ex-raiders and old members, you are welcome to create a new account as well and will be granted social user […]
A lot of us are on Alpha having fun testing the new class changes, quests, professions and what not. But perhaps most important is all the raid testing we are doing. So far we’ve fielded a solid team for each of the alpha raids and we intend to do so for the rest of them as well! If this sounds appealing to you, we do have a few spots open on our Legion progression roster. So don’t hesitate in contacting us! For our review of yesterday’s bosses. First boss, Star Auguror, was fun and had a nice rhythm and feel to it. Even if some of our DPS was calling it the next training dummy.The walls going down and floating […]
