School was very much in session tonight as DPC showed Instructor Razuvious that physical training alone will not get the job done, and that failing to teach your students basic mind control defence techniques can be very costly indeed. He also learnt that rogues can make very good tanks – for about 15 seconds…

Razuvious is a skilled swordsman and trainer of 4 apprentices. He is the first boss in the Deathknight Wing of Naxxramas and his attacks can bring a warrior to the ground with just a single strike.

Turning his own students against him with the power of mind control, they easily absorbed his powerful attacks, while our expert damage-dealing teams were hitting him with everything they had.

Great work from all, especially the priests who enjoyed a sudden crash course in raid tanking skills, and it all came together nicely. All in all, a very enjoyable fight that we managed to master remarkably quickly!

Looted from the corpse of Anub’Rekhan today, a piece of the Legendary Staff of Atiesh – originally wielded by none other than Medivh himself. The staff that was split into 40 pieces, Pandiani will attempt to reassemble after winning the first splinter today for the bargain price of 1200 DKP (a new record in our history! – though of course the one price covers the staff as a whole)

Just 39 other splinters, the base and the head of the staff to go Pandi!

Well, it took us a few tries, but in true DPC style we’ve bagged our first kill in the dread citadel Naxxramas. The successful attack was executed beautifully, with some last minute improvisation helping to make the kill as smooth as possible. There were a few fatalities, but we held through to gain a well-earned kill in the end. Superb teamwork from all involved.

A big thank you goes out to everyone who helped this happen!

With the new adventures and challenges in Naxx the guild bank DPCbonus is once again in use. This time to make it easier to handle and more reliable when it comes to actually getting the bDKP (Skredd, I hope I sorted all now…better late than never! 😉 there will be a list which will stay the same, same values from week to week and any change to it should only be when we add more items you can get reward for donating.

I know some of you feel it is “wrong” to get bDKP when you just want to contribute to the guild and give free enchants when possible but really you should all take this opportunity. This way it also helps the Officers to keep track of who gets what in way of enchants, BoE craft items etc and we can plan the guilds progress from all this. So please see this as a good opportunity to get a reward when you donate and help us make progress in the new encounters ahead. We really do need the guild banks and are happy to give you the bDKP for anything you can do.

Don’t forget that you can request enchanting materials too from the Guild Bank. As always all requests through the Guild Bank Forum.

The old guild banks for herbs, potions etc are ofc still open and happily taking donations but only the things on the bDKP list will get you bDKP and we have also introduced a new bank character to store general enchanting materials and the Tier 3 Mats such as Mooncloth etc.

Details on bDKP rewards can be found here.
