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.

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!



First of all, if you are wondering “they always do titles that have DPC in them and this one isn’t one :O” well its there, just the other way around simply because this title was too good to pass on.

Now to the interesting part:

The Ascendant Council took us 1 night to master and kill, it was hard to fight all the elements but in the end they lacked heart.

With this last server first of the tier we finally get to 13/13 HC right before Firelands comes out enabling us to concentrate on the new content that will be here soon.

After we took care of Chogall it was time for Lady Sinestra to bite the dust, or go back to her lava bath if you prefer that way.

Took us a bit over a week to learn how to dodge cutters, dodge purple balls, not overaggro whelps, not rage at stupid stuff like keyboards getting stuck and loads more.

But after we managed to do all that in 1 try it was great, everything clicked and Sintharia went back to the hole she came from.

And yet again a group of brave DPC members took a server first 😀

After a couple of months without raiding due to some issues we had we decided to get on with it and get our progress on track again.

We prepared to face the dual-headed beast that is Chogall for an epic battle in The Bastion of Twilight but in the end he just gave us arround 20 minutes of fun since he died on the second pull enabling us to secure yet another Aggramar Server First for DPC 😀
