Realm First Blackhand!!!! Woo!!!!
Gonna keep this short or I’ll forget to post and people will yell at me. Not sure I can describe how happy I am to have this dead. Blackhand was really rough for us. We did not have the right comp at all, although we rerolled/recruited into a better one by the time we got a kill. You’ll notice that I’m on my hunter because Aspect of the Fox is balanced.
We’re recruiting for Mythic farm and 6.2. Talk to us if interested or apply via the link above. Class needs are in our wowprogress.
Gonna keep this short and actually post the screenshot in a timely fashion. Imperator easily makes my top 5 least favorite bosses ever. Up there with M’uru. On to Blackrock Foundry next week!
This fight sucked a big one. Glad it’s over.
This was a fun fight. During wipes we had contests to see who could draw the longest fire lines.
Annoying positioning but a nice, short, numbers-ey fight. Completely deterministic and repeatable.
Sorry for the lack of posts until now, seems like doing professions on 11 alts and spamming follower missions has taken priority recently. So going into the Christmas week, we’re 4/7 Mythic and Realm 1st! Go us! So here’s the kills we’ve accumulated so far. I’ll try to do better posting the killshots somewhat close to when we actually kill the boss…
The hardest part about Tectus was the camera angle caused by the outside of the room and the pillars, and seeing the fire through the sand. Kinda chaotic/fun when 10 Tectii are up at the same time.
Flamethrowers pew pew! After we sacrificed Chuba twice to the big waves, we scored a kill.
Super emphasize that Whirlwind! Also, I forgot to take a good screenshot before passing out all the loot so I hurried up and took this one that only has me and Chuba’s alt priest in it. My bad 🙁
Easier than Heroic Imperator, by a lot. Super pushover, but I thought the “favor of the crowd” was a fun idea. Too bad it was tuned so easily we never had to optimize it.
We also did two groups of Normals and Heroics. Heroic Imperator did feel like pretty legit progression.
Not usually the topic of a frontpage post, but we did accidentally get a realm-best while going for Gold Grimrail Depot. Thanks to Rhazzer for setting up that group. Long live Team Rhazzers, the Grimrail Suplexers!
After months of carefully recruiting, we have finally made the transition to 25. This week, we zoned in with the largest raid group we’ve had in RM since Firelands. Being that it’s about 8-month-old content, we didn’t expect much progression, and we cleared the whole instance in about six hours. A few things were harder (Malkorok, Paragons) but on the whole it was easy to see that this tier’s balance was heavily skewed toward 25m. The jaw-dropping amount of loot was also pleasant. Anyways, we’ll be doing this for several more months until WoD launches, and we’re still selling stuff too. Most of us got into beta on this most recent wave, so we’ll also be doing much more testing, especially of the raid content.
Although we cleared 25, we did so with the help of a few RM veterans/friends who aren’t in our main roster for WoD. We are still recruiting exceptional players for WoD. We could use a few ranged DPS, a couple melee dps, and one healer.
We did two full 14/14H runs this week. That’s another milestone along our path to convert to a 25 man. We’re now at 17 raiding mains, so we’re getting close to being able to go 25m! Also, our Kor’kron Juggernauts have gone to recruits the last three weeks, so if you want to buy one, let us know. We’re also recruiting for SoO 25H and for WoD, so check out our recruitment page if you’re interested.
As of tonight, <Royal Militia> will be moving to Kel’Thuzad. After years as Bleeding Hollow’s oldest guild, we will be making the move to a server with more Alliance, less horde, and a much better environment for WoD. I made a very nostalgic post on the BH forums, but to summarize: We loved BH because of the community of friends on Alliance and Enemies on the horde. But now, the majority of those people have quit or transferred to other servers, and Bleeding Hollow is no longer the great server it once was. We feel changing servers is necessary to give ourselves the best chance of success in WoD. Anyone who is currently in RM is welcome to the new RM on Kel’Thuzad. Any “old school” BH-ers are also welcome.
Looking ahead to WoD, we are going to be doing some significant recruiting to fill up the ranks for Mythic raiding. If you are interested in a core raid spot in RM, please contact myself or Isamoo or post an application.
Now that we have some time on our hands with progression complete, we are giving our website and application form some much-needed updates… we apologize for any broken links or other non-functional pages. We promise it will look and work better when we’re done.
We finally did it. Garrosh is dead, and MoP progression is over. We came in at US22nd 10m (I don’t count 25-man guilds with their 581 ilvl), which is better than we’ve ever done before. So even though we could have done better without hard drive failures, finals, and Christmas/New Years causing scheduling problems, it’s still an improvement from how we’ve done in previous tiers, and that’s good.
The hardest part of this fight? Intermission 1. Hands down, no contest. We definitely wiped there at least 3 or 4 times more than any other part of the fight. What I wouldn’t have given for the AOE stuns and silences that Horde get as their racials. Unfortunately, Escape Artist and Shadowmeld just can’t compare. The extra 1% or whatever raid dps from those racials also would have been nice, but we eventually out geared that.
Although I’m glad it’s finally dead, this kill is bittersweet because it’s the end of 10-player progression raiding… something which I’ve grown to love. Really, it’s sad that 10H raiders are of such low importance that Blizzard is happy to destroy the groups we’ve spent the last four years building. Our group has been going continuously since Cata launch, and I really like the smaller group size and the tighter group you can build. Leading 10 people is much more manageable than 25, so that’s also a huge plus for the leadership (me).
Looking forward, we definitely plan to raid in WoD, although the details are still totally up in the air. Will we recruit? Will we merge? Will we server or faction change? All are TBD at the moment and now that we’ve killed Garrosh, we’ll be putting a lot more time into figuring that out. If you’re interested in recruitment for WoD or want to discuss a merger, hit me up in-game or make a post in the recruitment forums.
P.S. Here’s our killshot. The last 10H killshot for RM.
