Garrosh is dead. Tier 16 seems full of potential, but normal mode didn’t have much in the way of challenge. Our first tour through this instance included plenty of one shots, accidently 9-manning a boss while waiting for people to log on, and killing the Paragons without knowing what any of the abilities were beyond the first 3 bosses.
We are very excited to have normals down on week one, and being able to dive straight into heroics the same week they unlock. I think we will have plenty of challenge in front of us, as Garrosh showed us there is tons of potential for well balanced encounters in this instance (hopefully with a few less bugs that Garrosh showed us).
Stay tuned for heroic T16 updates!
This fight was a bit more difficult than advertised, but ultimately died in one night with relative ease.
I could not be more pleased with the way this tier has worked out. We have completely cleared out T15 , getting the US 195th 10-man Ra-den kill and cementing our place among the top guilds on our new server. Not only that, but we did it with time to spare!
A few of these bosses pushed us pretty hard, but we stepped up to the challenge and got done. For the first time in a while have a few weeks to relax and recharge before the next tier and going after Garrosh Hellscream!
Our raid team remains strong, with our vets playing better than ever, and some new faces that have been stepping up tremendously.
See you guys in Orgrimmar, until then it’s whiskey and backrubs for us!

After three intense weeks of serious progression raiding, we are proud to say we have come out the other end with both Heroic Dark Animus and Heroic Lei Shen down!
We heard these two bosses would be orders of magnitude harder than anything we had seen before or ToT, and were not disappointed. I’m really proud of the way everyone got on board with our plan to forgo farming, extend lockouts, and push HARD to get these bosses down. It appears our efforts paid off, and now the only boss left in the instance is considered an “optional” victory lap boss. Hopefully he goes down nice and easy, and we finish this tier strong!
For the record our Lei Shen kill was super clean, with not a single thing going wrong all the way to the end.

Kile (Warlock) Perspective:
This is a fight that gave us much more trouble on normal than it ever did on heroic. After buckling in for a long battle, this guy died with a whimper on the first night of progression. Now the only thing that stands between us and the final boss(es) is Dark Animus. We’ve heard some things about this boss… so looking forward to seeing how things play out, and moving on to the two big baddies at the end of this instance!
Two more weeks and two more dead bosses. It is very exciting to think we are now closing in on the last few bosses in ToT. While the toughest is clearly still ahead, I am optimistic we can keep our pace up and will hopefully be pulling Lei Shen and Ra-den sooner than later!
Look Ma! No skellies!
After spending our Thursday raid beating our head against this boss, we decided to call our raid and see if taking a couple days to clear our minds would make it any easier on Monday. Turns out it did, and we one shot it first thing Monday without a single death… creating what you see below, our first ever progression screenshot with out a skeleton to be seen anywhere!
Now with 7/13 behind us we are feeling the momentum and hoping this week brings yet another boss kill! We also had a bit of extra time to go back and overpower Heroic Sha of Fear, so you can find our obligatory screenshot for that below as well!
Due to some sudden roster changes we know have two full time openings in our 10-man heroic roster! Please get in touch with any of our officers (Bastosas, Varac, Miises, or Frizle) or post an application on our forums if you are interested.
I am 100% confindent we have one of the best raid teams on the server… we raid 9 hours a week (much less than most heroic guilds) and push progression as fast as hard as we can! Our skilled raid core has been together for a very long time and continues to be very efficient and very fun to play with!
If you are any of the following classes we would love to talk to you!
We look forward to raiding with you!
A Little life grip fun thanks to yours truly.
That aint Falco
After lots of hard work, and a little sketchy Russian strategy implementation I am proud to say heroic Council is down! This was not an easy fight, requiring tons of delicate timing, exact DPS application and tons of raid healing. The heroics have definitely stepped up a notch, and I am glad to see we are stepping up with them! Looking to seeing what is next in the Throne of Thunder!
Another great raid week is in the books with Iron Qon falling to our team. Momentum is high as we focus our efforts and try and knock out a few heroic bosses earlier in the instance!
