From Australia, With Love – Tier 19 is done.

olnevuioanervae

Well it’s finally over. This tier of content, which lasted through 3 instances of completely unbalanced and improperly tested encounters, is complete. It’s easy to look back and say that we played pretty well throughout, but we stumbled close the finish line. People quitting, people taking breaks, people being disinterested in the game, and my new favorite, getting put on Oceanic instance servers. We’re very proud of the grit people showed to keep pushing when Blizzard decides that their success metrics should be based on prison-esque game design. However, we know we can do better, and we will do better. It’s time to relax for a bit, deal with the summer slump, get better organized, re-adjust our focus, and hit Tomb re-energized.

The home stretch

Augur and Elisande are dead, we have but one more boss to kill before we head into the Tomb of Sargeras with no downtime between tiers. Perhaps someone at Blizzard should put forth the concept of test realms for quality assurance since this has been the most buggy patch ever. Maybe then the extra time spent properly testing would allow people to finish content! Then again, error 500 says that they just don’t care. xD

Also, flying is now a requirement for raiding. If you don’t have it, get to work farming. LUL

2 new bosses, 1 less Canadian, 3 great successes.

We killed Tich and Botanist in the past 2 weeks. Not too hard, tbh. Although having a fight where killing people in the final phase as the absolutely best strat is retarded. Cool Game.

As many know, our favorite Paladin tank is stepping away from the game. Many people don’t know much about Daedus, besides his ever present photo collection and dedication to hard alcohol, but he has been a huge asset to us and will be forever missed. It was like only yesterday that he joined us and started linking officers pictures of females ejecting spherical objects from their vagoos. Mostly because he did that yesterday. Forever shall it be engraved in our hearts the sight and sound of Daedus on our first Archimonde kill. His execution of the fight was nearly flawless and it would be impossible for anyone to ever compare. We can only hope that our new tank can fill Daedus’ shoes well, while hopefully being able to press his taunt button better. I hope everyone will join me in thanking him for his service and wish him the best of luck as he becomes Dr. Daedus, and will hopefully be graduating from his AA group as well.

Rising against great adversity to down 2 new bosses.

Nice raid markers, Koso.

I believe that it should be said that there are many things that normal humans cannot handle. Evil demons the size of a building, crazy psychopaths wielding huge swords, scorpions formed from crystals deep within the earth, greasy weeaboos that fill our Discord with youtube links of underage anime girls, liberal hypocrites imposing on the First Amendment because “muh feelings” and they enjoy being offended for other people, trying to schedule officer meetings with Koso, our Paladins having gametime for the duration of a raid, our tanks not having broken gear in the middle of a pull, and on and on. Fortunately we overcame all such difficulties and downed Krosus and Aluriel.

It is very exciting to see all the big guilds finishing the instance, but at the same time it is very disheartening to see many top tier guilds calling it quits. Hopefully Blizzard will realize that being successful at Mythic raiding should not hinge upon how much free time people have to farm Mythic+ or how lucky players are with a completely broken legendary system, but rather upon people’s ability to not be shit. Kind of like how it has been before this expansion. We can only pray that we aren’t fully immersed in Diablo 3 by the end of Legion.

We hope everyone had a wonderful Single’s Awareness day. Daedus got me a gift for it, but then wouldn’t accept the one I wanted to get him. Clearly he is such a selfless person. Hopefully his wife won’t be jealous that we’re Valentines.

3/10 mythic in a shit raid instance

We quickly cleared heroic and then promptly killed the first three bosses on mythic in the Nighhold. I would have expected at least a bit of a challenge here in a new instance, the final of this tier, but bliz decided that they would rather have a few joke bosses and then turn it up to 10 immediately afterwards on the following bosses. I definitely do not agree that the instance should be tuned around having 54 traits, but then again we’re talking about the same people who think that having dazed in the game still is engaging. Other things that are apparently engaging: Bosses bugging out when they walk over grass, trash mobs evading into the ground, hoping to get a legendary to be relevant even after “balancing,” getting fatigue inside a raid instance, bosses being so poorly tested and balanced that more encounters are being completed through bugs, exploits, and cheesing mechanics than actually doing them properly, and having to reroll because a spec is so poorly designed that it is borderline impossible for it to perform it’s intended role.
I like to write “funny” posts, but I’m not even joking about any of it. The only real joke is Blizzard’s Testing Environment.

Recruitment is currently not open, but as always, we will consider stellar applicants. And also all the weird people who ask for guild invites.

Though we may no longer be behooved, we shall always be frank with each other.

Forever ya boy.

We killed Mythic Helya the week before Nighthold, moving back into top 100 US. Well done, chaps. Despite poor circumstances, we overcame hardship to get the job done. Mostly because they broke Starfall.

Our great Raid leader, and long-time raider Sweetleaf has moved on to greener pastures and we thank him for his years of dedication with us. We know he’ll do great, and wish him the best of luck. In his place, Bedlam has stepped forward to take over his duties, and we believe that we can be just as if not more successful. We also wish Bedlam the best of luck, but for different reasons.

Moving forward into Nighthold, we have many exciting changes that we believe will put us in a position to succeed in Nighthold and beyond. Mostly figuring out how to prevent Daedus from getting one-shot. Stay tuned, friends. We are always accepting stellar applicants. Check the recruitment widget for our current interests.

Fire is red, Koso is dull, we suck at dispelling, but still killed Guarm LUL

guarm-mythic-kill

Congratulations on killing one of the most poorly designed encounters to date. A good progression fight should provide a sense of steadily improving over the course of an encounter, not just playing a mini-game of proximity ass-fucking while juggling hot dildos for 4 minutes. Shout-outs to Frost for the inspiration, and more importantly Denk.

As of a few days from now, we will not likely be recruiting. However, we will always consider superstars.

Have a Merry Xmas, a happy new year, and may all your hot juggling dildos be wrapped with great cheer.

Fashionable Front Page Post About Being 1/3 Mythic

We have conquered the first boss in Mythic Trial of Valor. A grueling test of being able to dodge balls, both visible and invisible, because testing encounters properly is optional at Blizzard HQ. After multiple wipes including taking Unerring Blast in phase 3 because why the fuck not, we completed the encounter. I personally did not, because our warrior tank decided to Tristana me in phase 3 like the giant weeb LoL player he is.


Unfortunately, 2 of our long-time raiders are having to stop raiding after xmas. We’d like to thank Fred and Snoflake for being dedicated to our raid and guild for the time they were with us. RIP in peace the World First Survival hunter Guarm kill. We are currently seeking a resto shaman or MW monk for an immediate raid spot and will also consider priest or paladin for that healing spot as well.

Shoutouts to Romang, Rolos, and Sweetleaf for being fabulous.

Amazing work, friends. With that, we wrap up this tier and set our sights on the next that unlocks in a week and provides barely usable gear upgrades that are inferior to what we can get from 5 man dungeons. Perhaps we can eventually replace some 850 rings or move our legendary Prydaz necks from our backup spots in our bags to our banks. It’s not like the most geared people on our server just run dungeons and don’t raid or anything.

We are currently putting recruitment on a hold as we evaluate current applicants and trials, but if you think you’re a bangin’ DPS, then drop an app. If you are a spec that requires a certain legendary to be relevant and you don’t have it, then you can fuck right off. There is no excuse for you to not have it. At all. However, if you make your transmog look as good as this we may make an exception.

We killed a boss last week.

So here’s a post with a screenshot. Perhaps we’re a bit slow on progression ranking-wise, but we prefer to have a work-life balance outside of this job game.

We are also recruiting 1 potential DPS. See sidebar or check our WoWProgress page.
