Time flies when you're in Pandaria
The news blog has been silent for quite some time! We'll blame the mists... yeah... stupid mist *shakes fist angrily*. With the end of cataclysm the guild settled into a hibernation period while waiting for MoP to land. Some heroic attempts were made, and a couple of heroic dragon soul bosses fell, but overall it was a quite period. Diablo 3 distracted some for a while until they either got bored or too annoyed at the jumps in difficulty level. The ebb and flow of expansion release was clearly in the "ebb" period.
Then to Pandaria! It was an exciting launch with lots of computer crashing due to the overwhelming number of people in flying machines launching rockets like mad at the same spot of land! So much to do, so much to see! Without being able to really point at any one thing, the levelling experience felt a little... different, in MoP. Not bad, just different. There's always a few who just rocket up to max level, but overall the pace seemed more... sedate.
The tiered raiding has proved to be a hurdle for our group, and that combined with LFR has seemed to dry up the availability of PuG raiders to pull in for those last few raid spots. We've been plugging away, anyhow, with all but the last boss of Mogu'shan Vaults complete and a few adventures into Heart of Fear. People have returned, people have moved on. It's the way of the MMO. We are always happy to see faces both new and returned, and often sad to see faces leave, too. It's another opportunity for the guild to refresh itself before marching back into the breach :)
Hold fast, Peace Keepers!
Thanks to everyone who helped to complete the Fangs of the Father legendary daggers! It is a great achievement for the guild and a completely unjustified bonus for me, your local curmudgeonly rogue. There wasn't any guild pet, mount, title, or anything else fun for the group so I can't say thank you enough to everyone who's participated in our Dragon Soul raiding to get here. Now all we have left are achievements until MoP! Two heroic mode bosses down, 6 to go :) P.S. Deathwing, you could totally stop dropping the agility axe now. We really don't need it and definitely don't need TWO of it to keep dropping each week. Kthx.
