We continue our progress through SoO Normal mode – and this evening, we took not just one, but two new bosses in normal mode, as both Kor’kron Dark Shaman and General Nazgrim were vanquished. It’s summer, it’s hot out, but we’re obviously turning that to our advantage – well done, everyone!
And there you have it: Last night, we vanquished the final boss of Siege of Orgrimmar, Garrosh Hellscream himself, in flex mode! Two attempts, with an important tweak-tip from Dwan about movement between Desecrations and MCs, and suddenly – Garrosh let out a hellish scream (O.O), the screen lit up with achievements and he was vanquished. Dead as a doornail. Feels goooood – yay, us! :D
Tanks: Thor, Lee
Healers: Diranna (aka Alf), Inwee, Miz
DPS: Kirhss, Kredoks, Nazara, Stax, Dwan, Dash
Disappointingly, no heirloom dropped for any of us, but I believe Kirhss and Nazara got upgrades. Grats on that!
Picture on the forum and in the Gallery, as usual.
But no rest for the wicked: Next week, we do it all over again, and also, continue our progression in normal mode. Onwards and upwards!
This evening, we took the Paragons of the Klaxxi, the second boss fight of part 4 in Siege of Orgrimmar Flex Mode, leaving only The Boss himself, Garrosh Hellscream!
In the meantime, we’ve vanquished Spoils of Pandaria 21 April 2014, Thok the Bloodthirsty on 25 May 2014 and Siegecrafter Blackfuse on 1 June 2014 – and hopefully, our success will continue and we’ll vanquish Garrosh before too long, clearing Siege of Orgrimmar (flex mode) along with it!
Pictures on the forum and in the Gallery here, as usual.
This year, we meet in the historic city of Lübeck, Germany, the weekend of 11-13 July!
So far, the following have confirmed their participation: Thor and Inwee, Kredoks, Dina and Kirhss, DD and his kids Ayesha and George, Adri and his brother Deadpower, Tahrn with his mum and daughter Freya, Cai, Aythorz (my brother) and myself.
Extensa and Muuheel are still looking into coming along – schedules and money needing to be considered. There’s plenty of room for more people, and we’d love to see as many of our guildies as possible – will we be seeing you?
See the thread under Guild Meets on the forum, for more details!
Edit: Sadly, participation this year has been reduced from what was originally planned, and the GM-group as per 7 July 2014 is Thor and Inwee, DD and his kids Ayesha and George, Cai, Aythorz (my brother) and myself – 8 people.
I haven’t heard back from Extensa and Muuheel, whether they’ll be able to join us or not – here’s hoping!
While we’re still working on Spoils of Pandaria in flex, we continue our progress in SOO-normal; Iron Juggernaut, boss number 2 in part 2 of SOO, was elegantly vanquished yesterday, with no deaths, after a few failed attempts. Picture on the forum and in the Gallery!
It’s April Fool’s Day today! Any good pranks to report?

We continue our progress in Siege of Orgrimmar, with taking down the third of four bosses in the second part in flex mode. We’ve also started normal mode and gotten halfway through part 1. Nice and steady - see evidence of our prowess in the Gallery section here, or on the forum!
