FIRST FULL WEEK RAIDING
Setup and downing bosses on Zul'jin
Well we're finally settled in and downing some bosses. A few of us main swapped so we're 480-500ilvl at best currently but we're working on it. Recruitment is currently closed for raiders but we're currently welcoming socialites into our guild who are more than welcome to come to T14 Heroics and Normals when we do them. I also went ahead and set up a page for us on Open Raid for older content (not mandatory). We only managed to get one killshot because we failed to remember to even do that. Whoops. I'll have it posted after tonights raid.
REFORMING ON A NOT SO DEAD SERVER
Turalyon is dead, Zul'jin is alive
Turalyon has finally gotten to the point it can no longer support recruitment. At this time we have decided to change servers over to Zul'jin to reform. It was a good 6 yrs while it lasted! Oh well, off to greener pastures!
PROGRESSION AND SUCH
Working on Heart of Fear in 10 and 25
Both of our 10Ms are making their way through normals and heroics while our 25M is focusing on solidifying our roster as the team is a year younger than the rest. Lunchmeats was nice enough to record a kill video for us since we fail at screeenshots on a regular basis. Thanks Lunch!
CONTESTS AND MISTS OF PANDARIA RECRUITMENT
Recruiting for Mists of Pandaria
We have re-opened our doors for recruitment in preparation for Mists of Pandaria. If you're interested in joining our roster, please email us an application or click "Join Us" over to the right. We are looking for the following classes:
=> 1 Death Knight (DPS)
=> 1 Warlock
=> 1 Mage
=> 1 Rogues
=> 1 Protection Warrior (10M Only)
=> 1 Hunter
=> 1 Shadow Priest
We're pretty solid on healers for the moment, but feel free to apply anyways if you feel you're exceptional. We're trying to rank if not the first tier of Mists, the second tier. The 25M is our venture back into the raiding we got used to in Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King, so please make sure you're computer can handle 25s if you wish to raid with us.

Total votes : 17
As you can see it was pretty close. Congrats to Haibane of Mal'ganis! Below is his submission, comment and a screenshot of him on his mount! Congrats man! We changed what mount he was getting to Heroic Ragnaros mount instead so he wouldn't have to pay for faction and transfer.
Sympathy Case Mod! How can I say it better than to put it on my most prized possession. The project took a lot longer then I thought (almost a week) but it looks really cool . I had to cut a window with plexiglass drilling hinges into it on top of watching different stencils paint dry for like 4 days (Takes like 5 hours for each coat to dry). I would have made it even cooler if I had a bit more time but it's still good. <3
Here are the other honorable mentions for the contest. Thanks for all the submission guys! Hopefully we'll be doing another contest during Mists of Pandaria.
Decided to try and get an end of expansion guild shot but a few people were afk, so here is about 35 of us who weren't afk. Cataclysm has been pretty great to use since formation. Thanks to my wonderful raiders/raid leaders for all the hard work that was put in, thanks to our suppliers Mutedsilence and Destard for keeping our bank stocked for raids, and also thanks to all the friends and family who remained supportive in rough times. You guys are outstanding! Let's keep it up in Mists of Pandaria!
Some Crap About Free H Deathwing Mounts
Vortex decided to give out free Heroic Deathwing mounts to players on the server who couldn't obtain them by their own doing (either they are terrible or not in a guild that can clear it). The only requirement was to be nominated for doing something notable. Well Vortex, I salute you guys for doing this.
So to do something that people will enjoy to some extent, we are offering up a Lifebinder mount to whoever wins this new contest I like to call "I Love Sympathy" contest. Basically, you come up with the most creative way to suck up to us or show us how swell you think we are and after July 20th we will pick a winner and give them a mount! Pretty exciting? I think so. See our community forums for more details on the contest. Good luck!
D3, HEROIC MADNESS AND MOP
So we went Horde and killed stuff.
So we killed things and then Diablo 3 came out. After that, we forgot about the website and just continued to farm things. So here, have a screenshot of whoever was on this past Monday morning for me to abuse for screens of Lifebinder mounts. So this is pretty much the update you're going to be getting until we finish recruiting 100% for the NEW 25 man we're trying to get set up before Mists of Pandaria.
If you're interested in joining us now or for Mists of Pandaria, please apply on our forums. With summer here we're extremely busy. Also for others who care, we are selling Heroic Ragnaros mounts and Heroic Deathwing mounts. I actually think if you want Blazing Drake the weekend group has relatively few players who don't have one already. TBH we might all have one. See our community crap forums for more detail. Otherwise hope to see you guys in our Ulduar 25, ICC25 and similar guild started server runs!
Legendary Daggers & Heroic Warmaster
Heroic Warmaster died after 100 or so wipes on the encounter. Attaxia finally finished the guild
s first pair of legendary daggers & got a Blazing Drake from Deathwing in the same night! Talk about lucky. Aside from that nothing else to report on!
HEROIC HAGARA, HEROIC ZAN'OZZ AND WORKING ON RAID VIDEOS
10% Nerf Whee!
10% Nerf came along during a busy week so we'll focus harder on junk next week. Heroic Hagara & Heroic Zan'ozz died to us Tuesday. Guess we'll worry about the other two next week when tornadoes aren't terrorizing the east coast. I need to post pictures and junk but I'm out of town. Enjoy these raid videos Orangesliice made for us of Heroic Yor'sahj & Ultraxion until I can update this crap.
Grats Smeet on his legendary (he raids with us but is guilded with Supermassive so there isn't any confusion). Weeks of suffering pugs then finally getting to do some 6/7H runs with us paid off.
Also Gumball got a Deathwing mount that I forgot to post. Grats man!
TWO DOWN, FOUR TO GO!
Another week of legendaries & mounts!
We have about 30 or so of the Corrupted Firehawks in the guild now after this past weekend. Completed two more legendaries and then did some normal fun achievements to finally finish off some birds. Congrats to Shorty and Ellipsis on their new legendaries! Still have a few more to finish, but luckily that knocks us down to one less group a week. We're pretty over Firelands at this point. Here is Ellipsis!
Shorty finally got a screenshot to me of him with his legendary. Grats Shorty!
Freya got a Flametalon of Alysrazor when he stepped in extra late to help us work on the 4th Firelands run of the week. Grats man on having better luck than the rest of us! :D
Also downed Heroic: Sinestra with use of the new cross realm feature. Thanks Aevestine, Crimz & Eralupus of Challenge Accepted on Khadgar, Averigity of Resilience Will Fix It on Azgalor and of course my own guildies Luubuu, Ivagor, Freya, Ellipsis, Pallypwr & Sieara (me lol).
Heroic Yor'sahj & Heroic Ultraxion
This is one of those times where I just catch up on updates that are overdue. Last night Heroic Yor'sahj was taken down by TQP and they were so pumped they forgot a screenshot. You'll just have to trust wowprogress for now. Here are some achievements and whatever killshots we managed to get with them. I got the kill link from Atrias & Equinox who both have stock UIs! Messing with the website's flow! Also grats Ellipsis on your Ragnaros mount. He only needs to get the Ultraxion mount to have all the rare drop mounts from the current and last tier!
Over the weekend we also got Heroic Ultraxion down. Guess we need to work on Hagara next.
That aside we're busy completing Heroic T11 junk for people since we weren't a raiding guild during T11 (it was still just a casual guild).
SHOULD HAVE STACKED MORE LEGENDARIES!
Freya got his Legendary & Chet got server 3rd Ultraxion mount
Freya finally got his staff after months of going through Firelands on Normal and Heroic. Still have 3 legendaries to finish from there and working on Attaxia's currently. He got his stage 2 daggers this weekend as well. Hooray! Guess it's been pretty good for us overall. We're currently in dire need of a dk/warr tank! Anyways, enjoy all the screenshots! Also congrats to Chetchelios for getting an Ultraxion drake. You guys are way too lucky! STOP IT!
UGH NERFS INCOMING SO SOON?
Glory of the Firelands Raider... Finally!
We basically have 2 weeks to down as much as we can before the incoming nerfbat (too soon Blizzard!). That aside we have more people who finished Glory of the Firelands Raider Metas to get their Corrupted Egg of Millagazor - more like enough to equal 10 people in the guild with it. I didn't really get a screenshot of everyone who got them but I took a screenshot of myself on mine just so you can see that yes, we do have them. Also got a screenshot of at least Heroic Morchok. It's going to look a little retarded because I was trying to be quick (yes Spawnzz ninjaed his way into both screens!)
HEROIC MORCHOK DOWNx2! GRATS SPARE & ELLIPSIS!
Started our grind through HMS... FOCUS
Once again we start the heroic modes off with fucking screenshot fail. As many raid teams as we have killing Heroic Morchok and no one can remember a friggin screenshot. HLH is already on it's 3rd Deathwing mount. At this rate, the mounts will start going to waste in a few weeks! Congratulations Spare & Ellipsis on their new mounts!
ULTRAXION MOUNT IS FUGLY
Congrats to Ivagor!
Never seen this mount drop or even around town before so maybe one of the few on the server at this time - Experiment 12-B! Congrats Ivagor. We were all actually pretty excited about this mount and then we saw it. It's.. fugly. Oh well. At least it's uncommon. And pink.
GAINED A NEW TEAM, RECRUITMENT & MOUNT UPDATE
Welome Absolute & Grats to Jopapa!
A guild that had been around since BC recently collapsed and a few of their players came over to start anew here. Welcome former Aeon members! They named their team Absolute. In other news, we've lost a few people to Star Wars, so recruitment has opened for a few select spots. Awesome casual players are also more than welcome to join our roster as you never know when someone will be busy. Congratulations to Jopapa on getting the second DW drake we've seen thus far.
GUILD FIRST LEGENDARY & SOME MOUNT UPDATES
First things first, congrats to Cernenus for his long overdue finished legendary. Hopefully we'll have some more to show off as well in the coming weeks. Despite the holidays messing with our raid compositions, we're still downing Deathwing and apparently his Christmas gift to our guild was a mount! Brokenfaith is the lucky winner. I also forgot to post Reyle's prize from Firelands a few weeks back, so here you go.
NORMAL DRAGON SOUL CLEARED, HARD MODES STARTED!
Madness Over & 23% Heroic Morchok Wipe
Alright well, we suck so bad at taking screenshots - more like REMEMBERING to take screenshots. Weeks behind but here they are. Special thanks to Pessadilla for his drunk ass stepping into a raid he's never seen before for Madness of Deathwing. Going to miss you while you're deployed! Thank you for your service man! Our weekend teams are taking short break to enjoy the holidays with our families. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone! TQP's team needs a Paladin or Warrior Tank still *hint, hint*
DRAGON SOUL RACE HAS BEGUN!
4 down, 4 to go!
4.3 finally dropped and it's the guild's first chance to prove itself as a worthy semi-hardcore raiding guild. The Quiet Professionals is off to a great start considering they are down a tank still.
YET ANOTHER BIRD...
OCTOBER RAFFLE STUFF
Congrats to Keldara & Mangling!
Keldara and Mangling have won October's mount/pet raffle. Keldara won the Winged Guardian and Mangling won Lil' Ragnaros but his internet isn't functioning right now so we couldn't get a screenshot of him with his prize.
OH HEY, WE'RE 6/7H NOW!
Heroic Alysrazor Burnt OUt
I still hate this fight but at least we're downing it. Million things to stand in fight of fucking hell.
Congrats to Khea and Dinorawr for getting Flametalon of Alysrazor! Dropped two weeks in a row. What are the odds? Apparently not that low.
DOWNING BOSSES AND TAKING NAMES
FIRST RAID ACCOMPLISHED
I put the group together for hard modes and we got Heroic Shannox down. Yay for us! First week as a real guild. I should point out that the image below is my scrubby shaman in a server pug. Our guild is horrible at remembering to take screenshots even when I yell at them in guild chat to do it as they are killing the boss, so these baddies will have to do until we get a real one from one of the three groups.
