Last Week's Roundup:


So, we had a week on Mistress. Wed we cleared Goroth, then Harjatan and then spent the rest of the evening, then Sun and Mon evening on her. The best attempts, getting into the last phase were as follows: (with plenty of early wipes in between!)


Wed: 28 wipes: 24%, 20%, 22%, 21%, 17%


Sun: 26 wipes: 25%, 7%, 7%, 9%, 18%, 8%, 8%, 22%


Mon: 16 wipes: 19%, 21%, 1%, 1%, 2%


I call that PROGRESS!


We are so close.. we have decided to forgo that break we thought we might get and go for it. This fight needs every single one of us to be on our A-Game. One mistake from one person makes all the difference and there are so many fight-ending opportunities, much like Kil-J. Total focus, shouts from Cy and Mivz, soaking the right Hydra Shot, responding fast to Cy's calls on AoE V ST, no Ninja-Pulls, is what is needed. This isn't about how much DPS we do as much it is about how many of us are alive in the last phase. We are rezzing early deaths but we really HAVE to have tank rezzes available in that last phase, so if you die early and we wipe due to not having a rez available at the end... then we will be sat here this time next week saying 'Close, but no Cigar'


So, what is at stake here? Apart from our sanity, our pride, our team spirit going into Antorus, our just rewards from so much hard work... We kill this, we are 4th on Server. Best result ever for this Guild. So with this in mind.. here's the pre-chat for this week's raids:


Ellz: We're gettin' in through the underground passage here, up through Harjatans chamber here, and dropping down into the water. Having grabbed some food, we inform Sazzine that she is in our custody and forthwith issue our demands. Any questions?


Cru: What exactly are our demands?


Mivz: We're giving the Blizzard two days to dismantle the entire apparatus of the Burning Legion, and if they doesn't agree immediately, we execute her.


Rae: Cut off her head?


Cy: Cut off all her bits. Send 'em back on the hour every hour. Show them we're not to be trifled with.


Cookie: Also, we're demanding a ten foot mahogany statue of Argus with his dock hangin' out.


Heli: What? They'll never agree to that, Cookie.


Levy: That's just a bar-- a bargaining counter. And of course, we point out that they bear full responsibility when we chop her up, and that we shall not submit to blackmail!


All: No blackmail!


Tal: They've bled us white, the bastards. They've taken everything we had, and not just from us, from our fathers, and from our fathers' fathers.


Zubs: And from our fathers' fathers' fathers.


Uz: Yeah


Visp: And from our fathers' fathers' fathers' fathers


Mads: Yeah. All right, Visp. Don't labour the point. And what have they ever given us in return?!


Bonbo: Gnomes


Ray: What?


Dieza: Gnomes!


Ray: Oh. Yeah, yeah. They did give us that. Uh, that's true. Yeah.


Tal: Nerfed Tier 20 for Monks!


Jag: Oh, yeah, Nerfed Tier 20 Zubs. Remember what the first Tier 20 used to be like?


Zubs: Yeah. All right. I'll grant you Gnomes and Nerfed Monk Tier 20 are two things that Blizzard have done.


Mivz: And soaking


Cy: Well, yeah. Obviously the soaking. I mean, the soak mechanics go without saying, don't they? But apart from the Gnomes, the nerfed Monk Tier 20, and the soaking --


Heli: Legendaries


Rae: 4 tiers of raids


Term: Huh? Heh? Huh...


Diddi: AP grind


Bonbo: Oh...


Mads: Yeah, yeah. All right. Fair enough.


Uz: And the Dalaran pub...


Ray: Oh yes, yeah


Rae: Yeah. Yeah, that's something we'd really miss. Huh.


Cookie: Nomi..


Term: And it's safe to do world PvP now Mivz,


Mivz: Yea, those PvP world Quests certainly make avoiding death by Horde easier, lets face it, that's the only way I'd ever level my Prestige..


All: heh hee heh


Ellz: All right, but apart from the Gnomes, nerfed Tier 20, soak mechanics, Legendaries, 4 raid Tiers, AP grind, the Dalaran pub, Nomi, and World PvP, what have Blizzard ever done for us?


Tal: Found us friends?


Diddi: Oh. Friends? Shut up!

This Week's plan:


Wed: HC ToS Alt Night (Run by Visp) All welcome (see forum for requirements)


Sun: Raid lockout to Mistress Mythic only.


Mon: Celebrate in the Pub


We have our 3 MO friends with us on Sunday as well again!


Aim of the week: Dead Mistress and Server 4th.


Nothing more to be said!
