17/17 M! US 64 and Server First!

We’re very proud as a guild to finish this tier off at a ranking of US #64 and repeat our goal of server first! The guild really came together and greatly improved through the tier starting off ranking near US 115-130. Solution has always done well on the harder fights and this tier was no exception.

We’re already looking ahead to next tier so if you’re interested in joining in on the fun and seeing how high we can go, please put in an application on our forums.

9/10 Mythic Blackhand we’re coming!

blast

Yes phase 1 was nerfed, but we already had that figured out and if anything the nerfs cost us some pulls figuring out what had to be changed. The healers really lead this kill keeping us alive to the end on what was only our 2nd or 3rd time into phase 3! Blast down in under 80 pulls!

Apparently some of us were so excited they had to get naked and take a selfie…

8/10 Mythic Blackrock!

We made quick work of Thogar and Iron Maidens to move us into the US #83 spot! Solution has always done best on the harder bosses and so for no exception as we downed Thogar in 31 pulls and Iron Maidens in only 41! Great work everyone!

We’re still looking for a Resto shaman if you know anyone interested!

6/10 Mythic Blackrock Foundry!

We’ve been progressing steadily this tier. We’ve knocked over Beastlord, OreoGorger, Hans and Franz, Flamebender Ka’graz, Gruul and Kromog and are hovering around a US 100 ranking. We’re breezing through the fights so far and now ready to take on the meat of BRF.

Hopefully our training on Thogar pays off soon! Choooo chooo!!!

We’re also recruiting a couple spots at the moment. If you’re a Mage or Resto Shaman who has recent experience with Mythic and is looking for a raid group … let’s talk!

Imperator Mar’gok (Mythic): Down. 7/7 Mythic!

Definitely the most difficult fight in Highmaul. We managed to push through Imperator and knock him over before the release of BRF Mythic. It came down to our last day and certainly came down to the wire, but we managed to pull it off.

Thanks so much to everyone who put in the time for the pulls. The level of effort that went in to planning and consistently gearing through Highmaul put us in a really good position to move forward with Blackrock Foundry. BRF Mythics … here we go.

9/10H Blackrock Foundry …OreoGorger down!

Blackrock Foundry was released this week and we managed to plow through 9 out of 10 Heroics. There were certainly some fights in there that you can tell are going to be a real pain in the ass during Mythic, but we’re looking forward to the challenge.

There has also been a lot of discussion on the Blizzard Forums about the level of difficulty in BRF. There’s a really interesting blue post that describes boss tuning with regards to the Highmaul to BRF transition. It’s a really good read for anyone who is progressing through Warlords.

We’ve also been getting back in there and attempting to knock over Mythic Imperator as well. We’ve gotten really close, but Thursday had some troubles with D/C and internet stability. We’re getting close though and we’ll get a video and post out as soon as it happens (hopefully tonight).

Other than that we’ve been plowing away at all this wonderful new content and raid bosses. Our group has been doing an extremely good job getting in there and knocking things out on a 3-day raid budget. So a huge tip of the hat to everyone

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It’s been a great 2014 year here at Solution. We’ve all been extremely blessed to stay in good company over the past year as well as make some new friends as we move forward.

Every once in a while Blizzard’s loading screen reminds us to, “Bring your friends to Azeroth, but don’t forget to go outside Azeroth with them as well.” And while this is a great tip. It’s also great to remember how important our in-game friends are as well. We’ve all spent a lot of time with each other over the past year in this game. Doing everything it has to offer. Everything from raiding to picking flowers. And Solution continues to stay true to it’s core principles: keeping this game a game and remembering that it’s the people that keep it consistently interesting. Not the content.

Solution has managed to keep a lot of old faces around and bring a lot of new faces in to the fold as well. So, as the holidays pass and a new year is wrought done upon us. Let’s not forget how great it is to be a part of a group that brings as much love to this game; as it does skill.

Please enjoy the holidays with your family and friends! We’ll see you in the New Year for more pixel slaying amongst friends. Enjoy the video! Stay thirsty my friends!

Twin Ogron (Mythic) … Down!

Twin Ogron bites the dust. Great fight. It was especially enjoyable running in to the first non-push over boss. The fight was a little hectic at times, because of a few abilities that line-up simultaneously. Either way, we managed to push over 2 out of 7 mythic. And now we’re on to the next one …

We’ve been working on Brackenspore now for our 3/7M. However, the holiday season is upon us and, of course, that tends to slow down progression a bit. We’ve got a few attempts in on him now and will be dead shortly. We’ll follow up with another post and another video.

Great work so far this tier. Let’s keep up the pace and get the rest of these bosses down!

Enjoy the time off out of game with your family and friends!

Kargath Bladefist: Mythic.

We’ve been progressing through Highmaul at a steady pace. There’s a lot going on and we managed to knock out normal and heroic within’ the first week. Now progressing on with the Mythic instance. Kargath continue’s to be silly easy as long as your group is geared appropriately and knows how to perform the basic mechanics.

Twin Ogron has been our first challenge in the instance; which, to be honest, has been a nice change of pace. We’ve got his number this week though and then we’ll be moving on to the next one. The fight isn’t all that difficult, there is just some mechanics that require everyone to pay extreme attention to as well as the charge mechanic that isn’t all that obvious which direction the charge is going; especially during the empowered charges. Anyhow, we’ve had a few sub 15% attempts and this week should be the end of him.

We’ll post the updated video … in the meantime, here’s Kargath!

Warlords of Draenor: Gearing up for Dec. 2nd!

Apologies for the lack of updates recently. Warlords has been released and we’ve been hittin’ the bottle pretty hard. There’s so much goodness to be put in place while we eagerly await the December 2nd raid release.

In the meantime, we’ve been punching away at Normals, Heroics, Daily Challenge Modes, building up our Garrison’s, and running Molten Core for nostalgia and purple hats with extremely helpful fire resist on it. It’s been pretty strenuous because there is an enormous amount of new content with this release, but overall, everyone has been extremely happy with the shiny things to play with.

Ragnaros (10th Anniversary)

We’ve had a really good turn out as a guild as well. It’s nice seeing old faces swing by the forums and jump in game. Our recruitment roster has been getting a lot of traffic. Our officers have been hard at work buying auction house materials and getting crafted items put together. We’ve been working on building out our forums for members and non-members to have some more community outside of game. There’s been a flurry of things going on and hopefully everyone has had a change to participate and get involved.

We’ll make some more minor posts as things progress, but really there’s not a whole lot of anything going on while we wait for the first raid release. Enjoy some funny raid chat while we get more web content put together!
