What a whirlwind of a tier. It was such a race we just didn't write up any posts for any of the bosses. What do you convey when the fights are so short-lived? At any rate... the tier is officially over! We defeated Sylvanas after 93 pulls. Overall I think we did pretty well. We could have shortened several prog fights with cleaner play for sure though. Despite not meeting Hall of Fame (for week 5, which is unheard of) we learned a lot. There is no improvement without some struggle.
Generally very disappointed in Blizzard's inability to tune Mythic properly these days. We wish they would stop introducing crazy power gains every tier that they don't account for in raid tuning. We historically make up most of our time deficit versus the competition in long-pull boss encounters, which there was maybe two of this tier.
The state of the game isn't great, but despite everything we had a blast this tier. We just wish it would have put up more of a challenge!
We downed this in 44 pulls. Honestly it took us a bit longer than I think it should have, but you gotta have a boss that really wakes you up for progression and this was it. We've almost got Nerzhul down and I expect us to be on Painsmith this coming Monday, the first true hard boss this tier. Fortunately we're historically very good with execution/control fights so really looking forward to it!
Well, we forgot to take a screenshot of the Tarragrue cause that boss is a meme. We did remember the other two though. 1, 3, and 2 pulls respectively for Tarragrue, Eye, and The Nine. Honestly not much to say about these bosses as they were pretty easy. Additionally we spent about 22 pulls getting Sylvanas, with a sad 50.2% wipe on Monday. So narrowly missing AOTC on week 1, but we didn't add any time to get there, as usual. We're already cranking on Soulrender... so hopefully we'll see another news in a few days for that. In the meantime enjoy the videos!
What a tier! Sire Denathirus is dead in 80 pulls for US 39 (Hall of Fame). Really proud of the team for us having such incredibly low pull counts compared to so many other guilds. Overall Sire was a pretty cool fight, but it was frankly a little too easy. We really dialed in tonight to finish it off (from narrowly missing a kill 5 days ago). This is our 3rd Hall of Fame to date (and we only missed EP HoF by a single pull). I think we can safely say we're a Hall of Fame guild at this point. Hats off to everyone who has cheered us on and supported us. That energy means the world to us.

Shadowlands has been a breath of fresh air thus far. The lack of an infinite grind has been a welcome change to the game. Castle Nathria overall was great for a first tier. The gearing in raids is...
