Choke Points

ArtichokeSo.. well ok, we’re recruiting. Unfortunately we’re not the only ones. And our recruitment message isn’t all that compelling. I mean we’re not 4/5 BT with promises of grand purplez to bring in the bodies.

We are far far far behind the ball. We’re 4/6 in ZA. Have a guild bank.. forums, ventrilo and tabards. Ugh.

We’re home sellers advertising our “cozy cottage.”

This CLOSE *pinching fingers together*

MagtheridonMy honey loves me..and does stuff for me :) He graciously volunteered to tank both Heroic Shattered Halls and Heroic Shadow Labs on Friday so that Lilac could be prepared for the Magtheridon attempt scheduled for Saturday. We finished both Heroics easily (many additional thanks to Ireena, Krullwyn, and Fearthewild).

Don’t eat the crayons

CrayonsLast night we made a few attempts at Lurker. It was our first time as a guild attempting the boss. The trash went very very well.. in fact someone commented that the SSC trash is easier than the TK trash. The boss.. not so much. We had some positioning problems with the tank. I’m sure we’ll get it worked out shortly.

We had a new recruit with us on the run. Just before the second attempt on the boss he and I exchanged the following whispers:

Me: Heya, just checking that everything’s going ok.
Recruit: Yeah, everything’s ok.. It’s just that this is so much more than I was doing before. I’m just worried that I won’t perform well. I really want to make the grade.
Me: There aren’t grades so much. It’s more like kindergarten. We want to know “does he play well with other”, “does he share his toys”,”does he do what he’s told to do when he’s told to do it”.
Me: It’s more about “doesn’t eat the crayons” than “colors within the lines”
Recruit: Ah, ok. So share my toys, play well with others and don’t eat the crayons. Got it.
Me: Exactly.

West Kingdom: Now a T5 progression guild

Who’s a dead little robot! That’s right biotch! Dead Voidreaver.

For the first time EVER! West Kingdom, in a guild only run, killed a T5 boss.

My DPS sucked.. don’t even look at it. Lilac was all dressed up in her Arcane resist set (+245 arcane resist). But Voidreaver died (and I [...]

Logarithmic Growth

Almost a year ago (Aug. 28, 2007) Tabard of the Illidari:

Last night we had 10 guild members logged on all at the same time. Of course, 30 seconds later one of them had to log off.. but for those 30 seconds we were almost a raid.

Last night, Aug. 25, 2008, at one point we had 38 [...]
