We finally pushed Thok the Bloodthirsty over last night. This was definitely the first fight that posed a significant challenge thus far this tier. It’s a strange fight, because it really wasn’t all that complicated from a mechanics point of view. Aside from the interrupts being incredibly annoying and the extremely “buggy” nature of him eating people when he turns.
We had quite a few deaths to him turning too quickly while chasing someone down. For whatever reason, his tail would one shot someone as he turned. It eventually ended up becoming our running joke for the melee who got swallowed left and right by his butt-hole.
Either way, we all managed to man up to his butt-hole and jab him with enough pokes to the side of his leg to make him fall over. Congratulations to everyone on their achievement, the progression, and any new shiny loot that was distributed.
We’ll be moving on to Siegecrafter Blackfuse <Destroyer of Guilds> on Sunday and more permanently next week. Siegecrafter is certainly no laughing matter either. It looks to be the first real “wall” boss in this tier and I’m sure has and will continue to be the destroy of guilds. We’re looking forward to the challenge.
A Warm Welcome
We’d like to give a warm welcome to our newest recruits as well. Welcome to Aispera and Hatokie. We’re all looking forward to killing these last few bosses with you guys in this tier and moving on to 6.0 with you. Here’s to many more kills among friends!
The Lighter Side of Things
We dubbed Misanth our “Hero of the kill“. Mostly because he was the last one to be tracked down by Thok during our kill, but also for being so amazingly pro at eluding Thok’s butt-hole on numerous occasions. This one’s for you Misanth!
Adventure’s In Random Raid Chat
It’s always nice to get some random raid chat to lighten up things during progression …
“Baiting” became a term for specific characters with reliable speed boosts to attempt to persuade Thok to chase them rather than a “slower” class. This could be accomplished by certain people (classes) maintaining a specific distance from Thok and pushing the “slower” characters (classes) closer to Thok. Which, inevitably, led to the joke …
My lord, that’s quite the head you have there! And, yes, that’s what she said …
Thanks for watching!Read More
We always manage to have a good time while clearing out our farm on Tuesday’s. This is just a few of the chat funnies that we managed to get some screenshots of.
We’ve yet to see a trinket drop from the Dark Shaman …
Taking a couple playful jabs at our little Shaman …
We’d also like to welcome back one of our long lost Warlock’s, Chauquita (pronounced sha-qwee-tuh, right?). We’re looking forward to raiding with you again!Read More
Another heroic … SPOILED! Yeah. Terrible pun. I know.
This kill put us at a very very respectable US #98 at the moment. We took a very busy holiday week and turned it in to an extremely productive one. We managed to push over our existing farm heroics as well as killing two new ones. Well done to everyone.
Spoils was certainly entertaining. We didn’t find it all that demanding from an execution point-of-view, but we have to give a lot of props to the box opening strategy team, the tanks, and the also everyone who put in the extra work on Halloween while we were short staffed. It definitely seemed like having the right strategy in place for when and where to open up boxes was a key part of this fight.
We managed to get a little bit of work in on Thok as well for next week; which we’ll hope to have done soon. Let’s be sure to keep the ball rolling and get our trash heroics killed as quickly as possible for the new week.
Congratulations to everyone on the achievement, the kill, and the loot. Be ready for more next week!
We’d also like to give a warm welcome to a couple new recruits: Galararia. We look forward to pushing through the rest of our content with you. Welcome to the team!Read More
Dead. Dead. Dead. Took just a bit longer than we all would have liked, but that’s the way it goes some times when you’re on a light raiding schedule. We ended up having a great Tuesday night though. Got all of our farm bosses knocked out and pushed over Malkorok as well.
Congratulations everyone on the kill, the achievement and the loot. Especially Yougibear on that extremely helpful heroic cape from your roll!
Spoils coming shortly …Read More
And another one bites the dust. We’re moving at a good pace and just about top break US Top #100. It’s been an amazing tier thus far as far as progression has been concerned. The rest of the bosses coming up are, unfortunately, not just pushovers. So make sure you’re bringing your A-game in order to push through farm bosses as well as being able to continue progressing deeper in to the instance.
Well done on Nazgrim, everyone. Congratulations to the guild on the achievement and to everyone who won loot.Read More
We ended up having a really great week. Managing to knock out three new heroics and got in some work on Pride. Another full clear and more gear.
Congratulations to everyone on Iron (j)Uggernaut and Dark Shaman kills as well as any loot. Screenshots and kill videos will be coming along shortly. We moved pretty quickly this week and just haven’t been able to keep up the pace behind the curtain.
We’ll be focusing on Pride, General Nazgrim, and Malkorok this coming week. Everyone be sure to bring their A-game along for our existing heroics and lets get these pixels destroyed.Read More
Well done, everybody. Overall it was a decent fight. Nothing really too complicated about it other than finding a workable order to send people down and to soak the adds up top.
We’ve put in a little work on Galakras so be sure to know the abilities in and out next week for another heroic kill. Everyone be sure to check up on the forums for our strategies and next plans for heroic bosses.
Congratulations to everyone on another heroic kill, the loot, and keeping up the pace.Read More
This fight was a lot of fun. It’s an obvious mechanics fight; which took just a bit of time for everyone to get used to seeing. Once we manged dodging the Brews, passing around the Mark of Anguish debuff, and positioning for Clash it was just a matter of pumping out solid DPS.
This fight is a multi-dotters dream though and our DPS managed to take care of business quickly. A very fun fight overall. Especially for a linear progression fight coming in at the number 2 spot. We’re looking forward to clearing Normal on Sunday and coming back in for Heroic number 3 and 4 next Tuesday. Check up on the forums and study up on the next heroic abilities.
Congratulations to everyone on loot received. And for the second heroic kill! Let’s keep up this pace.Read More
We pushed over Heroic Immerseus on Tuesday. The fight was pretty straight forward for the most part. However, we did run in to a couple “bugs” where the healed up adds basically became rooted when they were healed up to 100%. You can see it in the video where one of our Priests drops a feather and then Life Grips the add in to the puddle; which effectively pushed him. I’m assuming that the puddle would have eventually grown big enough to hit the add, but it definitely didn’t feel right. Anyhow, well done to everyone for pushing over the first heroic and overcoming the added difficultly.
Congratulations to everyone on their loot. We managed to get two Immerseus Bindings trinkets; one of which was Warforged. So congratulations to Warlockone and Houdinii on those. And congratulations to the others.
The Fallen Protectors should be coming on Thursday.Read More
