    • Defiler's End

      Valor upgrades definitely sped this one up, but we'd been making steady progress each night which made for a nice learning curve regardless. And I'm not going to complain about a little boost to get Archimonde down before the holidays wreak havoc on scheduling.

      nAi6WNo.jpg

      Thanks to everyone for great play the last couple of months in particular, really picking up the overall level to close out the tier. Thanks especially to Shabadu and Heckbringer who were instrumental in getting us here, but sat out the big kill. After 11+ months of more or less continuous progression, looking forward to a leisurely farm schedule. Recruitment is pretty much frozen at this point, but exceptional applicants interested in joining for Legion should feel free to reach out, though we'll need to see who rerolls, leaves, returns, etc., going into the new expansion before taking any further steps.

      Final pull counts:

      • Archimonde - 157
      • Mannoroth - 175
      • Xhul'horac - 101
      • Velhari - 79
      • Zakuun - 29
      • Iskar - 4 (lol)
      • Socrethar - 30
      • Gorefiend - ~110
      • Kilrogg - 34
      • Council - 30
      • Kormrok - 39
      • Reaver - 37
      • Hellfire Assault - 31
      • Archimonde (Heroic) - 51
      • Blackhand (Mythic) - 339 [bit of context there - granted, lots of quick p1/transition wipes]
    • Mannoroth

      12 down, one to go. Fun fight to progress on from start to finish, just making small adjustments and getting comfortable with the timings throughout. Now for fun times with the big guy.

      We're probably all set as far as recruitment goes at this late stage of the tier, but exceptional candidates are always welcome to apply.

    • Floor 2 (+Recruitment update)

      After Gorefiend, there wasn't really an specific single boss that felt like it merited a front-page update, but at this point, collectively the entire second floor of the Citadel seems like it does. Onwards to the roof, and Mannoroth. Time for the real challenge.

      With the arrival of fall and changing work/class schedules, we're looking to replace a mage and add one more ranged DPS to our lineup to give us some flexibility as we close out the tier.

      As usual, definitely felt like this should've been dead sooner, but I'll take it. Good to have the first major roadblock behind us, and now on to floor 2...

    • NEWS: Guide to Finding a Grove Warden Run
      269347World of WarcraftMMODungeons The Grove Warden, one of World of Warcraft’s most-wished for mounts, is perhaps one of the hardest to obtain in the game to date. Locked behind the wall that is Heroic Archimonde, getting this mount can seem impossible unless you are part of a guild prepared to take on the challenge. This has many players feeling more than a little disgruntled, especially considering the eminent removal of this mount once Legion launches. Players determined to make this mount their own find themselves at a loss. However, it is not hopeless. Earning the Grove Warden mount can be within your reach, even in the limited time we have left until Legion. Below are some great suggestions to get you well on the way to making this desirable mount your very own, even without being part of a hardcore raiding guild: #FriendshipMoose The Friendship Moose project is one of those things that make me firmly believe that the World of Warcraft community is still an amazing place. This is community-driven effort to put together groups of geared players with lesser geared hopefuls to tackle Archimonde and obtain the Grove Warden mount. Currently, quite a few moose mounts have gone out using this rather unconventional method. While using #FriendshipMoose will not cost you any in-game or real life money, it is not totally without work. Players will need to gear themselves up to at least an item level of 710. They should also go into the raid knowing basic class mechanics and strategies for the boss encounters they will take on. There are no role requirements here and players will find themselves matched with appropriate groups. For more information or to sign yourself up for your own chance at the Grove Warden mount, check out the #FriendshipMoose Twitter page or the #FriendshipMoose website. Forums, Forums, and Forums If you are not willing to wait for the #FriendshipMoose route, you may consider taking a more old-school method of seeking out groups. Sometimes making a simple forum post on your server’s forums can be enough to get you into a group for this mount. If you find little luck on your own server, do not give up hope right away, with a little diligence you still may find success. If attempts to find a guild on your own server fail, simply look elsewhere. Thanks to the ability to join groups on other servers; you can choose to put up your plea for help on a host of forums. For best results post on a variety of realms to ensure the most coverage. For the less ambitious of us, you can also choose to pick out the top 2 to 3 realms for your particular region and faction and post on those. Recruit Top Guilds While going around about route like the ones mentioned above will work eventually, sometimes it can be much quicker to go right to the source. Head to any website where the top guilds on your realm is listed. Pick one of your faction and approach them directly. Be concise, polite, and be ready to be told no at least once. Don’t be discouraged, instead move on to the next guild on the list. Remember, when while this method may net you the moose, it will cost you. Currently, most guilds are charging anywhere from 1 million gold upwards for runs of this type. Be well prepared to pay and pay dearly. Typically, guilds will ask for half the payment before the run and half when you have gotten the mount. Be vitally aware of scams. Even if you have the cash in hand, just asking a guild wont’ be a slam dunk. As mentioned above, be prepared to be turned down on more than one occasion. Many guilds are still trying to get this mount for their members and will not take players outside their guild before all members have a Grove Warden mount of their own. You may be asked to wait or totally denied, either way remain polite and move on to the next guild. Group Finder Group Finder is a handy little tool that Blizzard installed in the game some time ago. You queue up for a specific thing and it puts you and other players that have queued together to take on the chosen task. In the case of the Grove Warden mount, it would be getting to and defeating Heroic Archimonde. While Group Finder deserves a spot on this list and won’t cost you any gold to complete, it should be taken on with extreme caution. Any time you join a group with unknowns you are leaving it to the fates about how successful the run will actually be. There is no guarantee here that you will ever even reach Archimonde, let alone kill him. It may take many, many groups and a lot of frustration to complete the task using Group Finder. On the other hand, you could get the Grove Warden on your very first attempt. Such is the nature of this useful, yet unreliable, in-game tool.   The Grove Warden All three methods above will eventually get you the spot you desire to earn the Grove Warden mount. The name of the game is all is patience and perseverance. None of the methods above come without a small amount of work. Even though you will be carried through the run, getting this mount still won’t be easy. Choose the method that works best for you and afterwards when you are sitting astride of your very own moose, all the effort will no doubt be worth it. View the full article

    • NEWS: Guide to Key Lore Figures in Legion
      270719World of WarcraftMMOGameplay Legion is all about the lore. In fact, this expansion will tap into tons of classic World of Warcraft lore. This includes a host of heroes and villains both familiar and totally new to us. These epic characters will shape the world of Legion and we will likely get to know them quite intimately before the end of the expansion. For now, we only have limited information (and a whole lot of speculation) on how these characters will intertwine into the story. Here is a look at the key lore figures in Legion and what we know and can perhaps guess so far: Anduin Wrynn Anduin Wrynn was nothing put a small boy when World of Warcraft first launched. Since then, he has grown up considerably. Heir to the throne of Stormwind and son to King Varian Wrynn; Anduin is a true diplomat. Wise beyond his years, Anduin has even used his skills of persuasion to convince his hot headed father to lay down his arms in the name of peace. However, in Legion Anduin will be tested in ways that he never has before. While not confirmed, it seems likely that Anduin will be thrust into the role of King of Stormwind. All of his diplomatic skill will be rendered useless as the Burning Legion stages their invasion of Azeroth. In Legion Anduin will learn what peace really costs and will have to decide if he is willing to pay the hefty bill. Maiev Shadowsong Anyone who played in the Burning Crusade expansion will remember Maiev Shadowsong. A legend among the notorious Watchers, Maiev was the tracker and eventual captor of Illidan Stormrage inside the Black Temple in Outland. After capturing Illidan she also captured his many followers; the Illidari and vowed never to allow them to roam free ever again. Despite her success, Maiev admitted that her life was empty without the chase of Illidan. In Legion, Illidan will be freed and his Demon Hunter associates will be welcomed as valuable allies. While we can’t say for sure, we can only assume that Maiev will not take this development well. Her part in Legion remains to be seen, but the release of Illidan and his associates may be the catalyst that sends Maiev over the edge. Genn Greymane King of the nation and kingdom of Gilneas, Lord Genn Greymane has taken a backseat role since his introduction in Cataclysm. Legion will change all that and bring Genn and perhaps the rest of his Worgen people into the spotlight. Known as arrogant and willful, Genn is filled with a bestial fury that his Worgen nature only intensified and has often been less than totally loyal to his allegiance to the Alliance. Despite this, Genn has always had the best interests of his people at heart, even in his worst moments. With the loss of his son and nation to Sylvanas and her Undead legions, Genn is a changed man. While he now realizes the importance of his allies, he now opposes the Horde more vehemently than ever before. Genn and his people will do whatever they can to reclaim their homeland and they eagerly await the day they can drive out the Forsaken. A showdown between Genn and Sylvanas seems almost inevitable. Khadgar Khadgar has played a big part in Warlords of Draenor and it seems he will continue to play a significant role in Legion. One of the most powerful wizards that has ever lived; Khadgar has often had a hand in world events. Despite his power, he was to stop Gul’dan from opening the Tomb of Sargeras and the Burning Legion is now flooding into Azeroth. Now this formidable magic user is prepared to do whatever it takes to stop the tide of darkness from covering our world. However, with the Horde and Alliance more mistrustful of each other than ever before, they may choose to risk destruction rather than work together. Pulling together the needed forces to combat the Burning Legion may prove to be an impossible task; even for one as formidable as Khadgar. Gul’dan Formly an Orcish Shaman of the Shadowmoon Clan; we got up close and personal with Gul’dan in Warlords of Draenor. This scheming Orc attempted to enslave the rest of his race to the demons of the Burning Legion. While his plans ultimately failed, Gul’dan was far from undone. As the heroes of the Horde and Alliance defeated his forces, Gul’dan escaped through the Dark Portal. Now the Warlock has unleashed hell upon Azeroth. Having opened a portal that has allowed for a giant invasion of the Burning Legion; Gul’dan has set his sights on the destruction of our world. To ever achieve the peace we seek, it is likely that this foe will need to be defeated once and for all. Xavius, The Nightmare Lord For those not familiar with Xavius, he was once a powerful user of magic and the high councilor to Queen Azshara during the War of the Ancients. Long considered to be the reason for the Burning Legion’s interest in Azeroth; Xavius lost favor with Sargeras and as punishment was turned into a satyr. With this new form Xavius terrorized the world with an affliction that almost obliterated the walls between reality and the Emerald Dream. Of course, his plans were thwarted, however, he was not destroyed. Now Xavius is back with a vengeance. Determined to prove his worth he leads the conquest of Val’sharah where the tainted world tree Shaladrassil spreads the Emerald Nightmare’s corruption. This satyrs success could lead to the Burning Legion’s triumph and the eventual destruction of our world. Sylvanas Windrunner Who doesn’t love Sylvanas? Once a Blood Elf, now the leader of the Forsaken; Sylvanas loyalties have always seemed to lie with herself first and the Horde second. While Sylvanas was largely missing in Warlords of Draenor, that is set to change. In Legion the Dark Lady will play a vital role in the events that will transpire upon our world. With enemies on all sides, the fate of Sylvanas is uncertain. With eternal damnation the consequence for failure, the stakes are high for this character in Legion. In this expansion Sylvanas will have to make some difficult decisions, including how far she is willing to go to protect her own people. Illidan Stormrage Captured in the Black Temple in the Burning Crusade expansion, Illidan Stormrage was supposedly struck down by Maiev Shadowsong. Despite his seeming misdeeds, Illidan has always been a fan favorite and many of us have longed for his return. Now in Legion we will be seeing this beloved character again. With the Burning Legion on our doorstep, the peoples of Azeroth need all the help they can get. Despite his potential wrath, we will seek out Illidan (who has been restored to life) and beg for his assistance against the dark tide that threatens to overwhelm us. However, who Illidan will ultimately choose to serve and what the consequences will be for his entrapment remain to be seen. View the full article
