I'll begin with the biggest announcement: We are moving to another server. Aggramar, to be specific.
It's a bittersweet moment, to say the least. On one hand, many of us have been on Arthas since we started playing -- I've been here over 9 years. On the other hand, the increasing faction imbalance has made the game nearly unplayable in places like the Timeless Isle or the Isle of Thunder, not to mention the minuscule pool to recruit from as Alliance on Arthas. We're the only active Alliance raiding guild on a high population server, for crying out loud!
The decision wasn't easy, but it's been a long time coming.
In other news, we've gotten a couple new heroic kills. Last Wednesday (Feb. 19), we killed Heroic Galakras, and yesterday we killed Heroic Iron Juggernaut. Hopefully this is the start of a trend, though I know we haven't hit the hard bosses yet.
Additionally, while it's somewhat less of an accomplishment, most of us completed our Glory of the Orgrimmar Raider achievement last night!

After attendance issues last week, we got another one down tonight. Not a bad fight. Now for a nice, two-week, holiday break.

I guess our Thanksgiving break left us feeling rejuvenated -- or something like that, anyway. Great job tonight, everyone!

Last night we finally finished up normal mode Siege of Orgrimmar. We had several 4% wipes the previous week, but due to tunnel vision, we were overwhelmed by Touch of Y'Shaarj. Last night, things went much smoother, and we managed the kill after only a couple of attempts.
I've got to say, this is one of the most satisfying boss kills in quite some time. I don't think any other normal mode boss in either Mists or Cataclysm has come close.
Great job everyone!

After being forced to drop 25-man raiding due to the abysmal state of Arthas Alliance, we picked up the pace. Tonight, on our second night of attempts, we brought down Lei Shen!
Heroics, here we come!

We made the switch to 25-man raiding this week and we're off to a good start (5/6 in Mogu'shan Vaults with several pugs along), but we are still in need of more for our raid team! We mainly need DPS classes (warlocks in particular) but will gladly give players of any class a fair shot.
Note that all of our members are expected to be mature. This is not a "mature content" warning, but rather a disclaimer that if your behavior warrants such a warning, we are not the guild for you
If you are interested, you can either apply here or speak with one of our officers in-game.
UPDATE (Feb. 21): We have been regularly raiding as a 25-man group, and we have now cleared through Lei Shi in ToES. We are still recruiting and are primarily in need of ranged DPS and strong non-druid healers.

In an effort to return to 25-man raids, we are once again recruiting! Raids continue to favor ranged DPS (as well as healing classes we are lacking in), and while we have been able to push through these barriers in the past, we would like to have the class diversity promoted in a 25-man environment.
To clarify, that means we are currently recruiting all ranged classes as well as at least one holy paladin, restoration shaman, and mistweaver monk. Other classes are welcome to apply, of course, but those are our primary needs.
If interested, please apply in our forums, or speak with any of our officers if you have any questions!

We decided to finish up our achievements tonight, and with the completion of Holding Hands, we earned our Glory of the Dragon Soul Raider meta! Mount collectors rejoice!
Posted by Halleck on July 5th, 2012
After several frustratingly low attempts (one at less than 1%), we finally managed to get Madness tonight! With Dragon Soul officially cleared, we look forward to finishing the achievements in there and maybe even relaxing a little before Mists arrives.
Great job, everyone!
