A satisfying sight.

A satisfying sight.

Our biggest enemy in getting Horridon dead was in assembling the team to do the job. The Summer curse has struck, and every raid we would be missing a few key people. When we were finally able to put a decent strength team into the field, the dino gave it up.

As is often the case on heroic kills, the greatest obstacle on the night was not some new, dastardly mechanic, but getting everyone to focus up and avoid mistakes. There was still not a great deal of leeway for the first kill, but it was satisfying nonetheless.

Hopefully this opens a few eyes and sets us up for more accelerated progress.

 

PS – we killed Jin’Rokh ages ago but no-one thought to take a kill shot because, well, it was only Jin’Rokh. So here he is, from one of our more recent kills. Look everyone, dead Jin’Rokh!

The heroic warm-up.

And so we’re done with the normal modes. As befits an end boss, Lei Shen was one of the harder fights in the Throne of Thunder. Though, to be honest, not that hard. Our kill was completed with an amusingly awful use of heroism in the first transition that benefited precisely nobody. Genius!

There will be a video up soon, so you can watch our glorious defeat of the end boss and marvel at our brilliance. Now it’s on to heroic modes.

So the Thunder King is coming. Well, so are we! Deeprun Pest Control rides again into 5.2 , ready to take back our crown and dethrone Lei Shen. We are putting the team together right now, and look forward to some glorious victories in the weeks ahead!

Finally retired the ageing and creaking Joomla install and set us up a shiny new WordPress instance!

After setting it up, Jellymel chose and tweaked the theme and I then spent 5 hours or so importing all the news items and images from the old site. Nostalgia trip reading through all the old posts!

Anyway, everything’s nicely categorized now, see the list of categories on the right. ⇒

Probably some more changes to come!

Our first heroic DPC kill in Mist of Pandaria! These dogs sure hit hard, but they couldn’t stand up against our superior painting skills *cough*. We managed to kill the dogs pretty smooth when everything clicked and Soviet Russia decided to give our mage painter a stable internet connection.

After bashing the emperor’s pawns we finally broke the will of the emperor. Let the heroics begins!

Deeprun Pest Control back in action! After a very long time of inactivity we decided to get our sh*t back on track. We managed to clear HC Dragon Soul in just a few weeks. A big shout out to all the people who helped keeping the DPC spirit alive!

The race for Mists of Pandaria is on … See you there!!

After 188 attempts and a handful of excruciating low percentage wipes, we finally managed to vanquish the Firelord on Heroic difficulty, claiming another Realm First for DPC.

Greyowl has also managed to complete the guild’s first Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa’s Rest. Congratulations to him!
