US 8th Fallen Avatar

by blooblahguy 20 days ago

We decided to let our screenshot be a shitshow, because our kill was kinda a shit show. In true big dumb fashion we left it on Personal Loot for the kill. But this is only the 2nd time we've done it this tier. Maybe that's the secret to killing hard bosses.

307 pulls total, which is a lot more than we probably needed, but multiple 1% wipes are more fun. Even so, we jumped 14 world ranks with this kill and snuck it in before weekly reset. Good job everyone!

 

Oh and we also killed Maiden, but forgot to post the screenshot: 


Mythic Day 1 - World First 5/9

by Lozy 1 month ago

Went 5/9 on our first mythic day raid.  Hard to tell if this is going to happen in future tiers, but we had a blast doing it today, which was the goal.  Huge shoutout to everyone that made this possible, from people digging through logs on the bench, to people hearing me ramble about spreadsheets and diagrams during off times in discord.  We achieved 3 world first bosses (Harjatan, Sisters, and Desolate Host), and were the only US guild to end at 5/9M.  Super proud of everyone and can't wait to see where we end up!

 


Mythic Gul'Down US 10th

by blooblahguy 5 months ago

Pretty sure the guild was sustained with shitty dad-jokes for most of Gul'dan progression. 195 pulls feels like a lot more when each pull is ~10 minutes, and phase 1 after so long feels more like watching hypnosis spiral than playing a video game. Overall though I think this is probably the best tier Blizzard has ever made. But WE NEED A LITTLE DOWNTIME NOW. While we've been mostly immune to burnout (see Dad Jokes), back to back to back "tiers" hurts everyone. Looking forward to some farm time with friends before Tomb of Sargeras.

As always, insane props to our whole guild. Our ranged did a great job sitting on the bench, truly a stellar job. The amount of research and prep our guild did was as always awesome, especially for this last boss. Leave it to us to jump 5+ ranks on the last boss of the tier. Now if we can only put in that prep on the first 9 bosses.

US 10th is incredibly good for a strictly 16 hour a week guild. We are unbelievably lucky to have such an amazing guild with such a great atmosphere, see you all in Tomb!
