You’ll have to forgive the somewhat cheesy headline but hey, we’re happy! it started a few weeks ago with Vierklauw getting our first Sulfuras, Hand Of Ragnaros in almost 1 year of raiding MC! This was, of course, followed shortly by the Splinter of Atiesh for Pandiani which was the start of the items for the Legendary Caster Staff.

And now…

10 months and 3 Weeks after getting the first binding from Barron Geddon we FINALLY got the second binding for Perseus there yesterday! Needless to say the MC run was cut short and we took a quick trip to Silithus in order to kill Thunderaan (who wins the “most anti-climatic boss in a while” award!) and form the Guilds first (and probably only!) Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker.

Big thank you to those who lent the last Arcanite needed to form the Elementium Bars, especially ofc Nightstar!

Yep…owing to a nice problem at the host’s side of things the databases for the DKP tables were corrupted and are unable to be restored which is nice and handy as you can imagine! As such I’m in the process of rebuilding as much as I can manually but unfortunately most of the item history etc is basically gone and cant be restored! Rather annoying! ๐Ÿ˜

We will however be able to rebuild the DKP values that people had on the 40man (now called primary) table due to the fact we use getDKP which stores a local copy of the amounts people have etc. Unfortunately we dont have an up to date version of the 20man table so the decision about what to do regarding this is still on the drawing boards at the moment but we will probably take the opportunity to address some of the shortfalls of the secondary table.

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! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 โ€œwrongโ€ 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.

Donโ€™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.

Thanks to the valiant efforts of all concerned in gaining armour and potions to resist her attacks, and through hours of training, DPC have notched up another kill in Ahn’Qiraj – that of Princess Huhuran.

Congratulations to all those involved!

Since the Ahn’Qiraj gates were opened, the Deeprun Pest Control has been working hard to vanquish the servants of C’Thun.

Progress in the Ahn’Qiraj ruins was very swift and within a matter of days Ossirian the “Unscarred” and all of his minions were defeated.

The war at the Ahn’Qiraj temple began well with The Prophet Skeram falling swiftly. The bug trio of Vem, Yauj, and Kri resisted several attempts on their lives but ultimately also fell.

However, all was not so glorious; repeated defeats against the Battleguard Sartura and even the reborn Prophet Skeram drove weariness into the hearts of even our most hardened warriors. Enthusiasm failed and some even questioned the wisdom of continuing the fight against a seemingly undefeatable foe.

All that changed 3 days ago when Battleguard Sartura was finally slain! Spurred on by this great victory, the past few days have seen renewed energy in the Ahn’Qiraj fight. Our forces valiantly engaged Fankriss the Unyielding in battle and on the second day of combat, the beast was annihilated by superior firepower and cunning strategy.

We continue on in our march to C’Thun…

Last weekend saw the completion of the war effort leading to the grand opening of the Gates of Ahn’Quiraj. Vohbo of the horde guild “The Dominion” was there on hand on Friday night with the sceptre to start the event and ofc chaos ensued! Unfortunately most of the chaos involved moslty lag and server crashes, 2 before the ringing and a 3rd more fatal one which lasted around 2hours shortly after the actual event was started…Still it didn’t prevent guildies getting some nice screenies!

[images missing :(]

Regardless eventually the server calmed down a bit but unfortunately it was still somewhat laggy so we got a group together and headed into the AQ40 instance which was lag free, bless the instance server being seperate! Had a quick play around in ther getting The Prophet Skeram down to 22% on the best try despite having a pretty random group (we ofc weren’t planning on going into the instance at all that night!), needless to say we’re somewhat confident he’ll be going down fast when we start to do the instance this week. Sat/Sun saw us in AQ20 during the day, good fun inside and very different fights to the usual affair, Buru especially! We still had MC and Nefarian to finish off this week but those are out of the way now so time to have a proper play around in AQ!

Tenakakhan from the guild Final Equlibrium managed to compile a video of the event which can be found here.

Well…we did it! \o/

After a great many wipes, weeks of practice, patience and perseverence we got him! Grats to all involved in our first of many Nefarian kills and with AQ coming soon it was excellent timing as well! ๐Ÿ˜€

Loot dropped was: Breastplate Of Wrath, Stormrage Chestguard, Mish’Undare, Circlet of the Mindflayer and Pure Elementium Band along with his head ofc!

So we went out and celerbrated in style…wiped on a core pack in MC! (nubs!)
