We knew we had the gear this time so we extended and went for it. He took us 181 pulls for US 56. I can't say we didn't make mistakes with our strategy that cost us some extra time, but that's part of learning. What I do really value is how we overcame our mistakes and finished this boss off as the top strict 9-hour raid team in the US. I couldn't ask for a better team that held each other together despite the frustrations this tier had. Tensions certainly got high, but we never tore at each other.
As the 4-year anniversary of Nascent nears I want to briefly reflect on where we came from. I started with 5 old school raiders from our past existence and set out to clear the most difficult content without spending a significant portion of my weekly life to do so. I was also adamant that I never wanted to raid in a toxic environment that so many hardcore guilds foster. We have gone from wiping on Heroic bosses in Highmaul to progressing higher and higher, every single...
We downed this guy in 54 pulls for US 55. It's really just smashing your head until you perfect the first phase and intermission. This fight was definitely a coordination and execution check. We weren't sure if we'd get it tonight, but we pulled it off on the last pull of the night. We've not raided progression outside our 9 hours this tier. Incredibly proud yet again of the team and how much we've come together since the beginning of the expansion!
Our only open position is an exceptional ranged DPS. Come join us and raid less without sacrificing progression!
We killed this in 30 pulls for US 60. Amazing job by the team. It's unfortunate this fight is so rogue dependent, but we're looking forward to a nice change of pace with Mythrax. Super happy with our pace this tier. We'll be pushing hard to finish out before Blizzcon!
We are recruiting ranged DPS and a healer! These are core positions, not for comp purposes. Come join our awesome crew!
This mutant dog took us 75 pulls, well below par. We had a 0% wipe last Wednesday in sub 50 pulls, but had to wait until Monday to finish it off. Zul will be a fast follow this week! The team has been progressing faster and faster as we hit the harder bosses at the end of the raid. We're beginning to really hit our stride, and we cannot wait to tackle Mythrax and G'huun to finish off this raid! We've stuck to our strict 9-hour raid schedule. Don't be fooled by guilds that raid more and have less progress.
We are recruiting a Mage/Boomkin, Warlock, and Holy Paladin to round out our roster. These are core positions. Come join our chill team and progress in less time!
This boss took us a total of 25 pulls. Very efficient kill and now we're onto Fetid, the first real gear check in the instance. As some of the other guilds drop down their raid nights we continue to keep it consistent with just 3 nights (9 hours). Don't be fooled into thinking an extra night is worth it, progress the same in less time! Really proud of the team on Vectis and things are shaping up nicely as we head into the latter half of the raid.
We're recruiting a Holy Paladin, Rogue, and Mage/Warlock!
We also killed MOTHER and Taloc, but totally forgot to get screenshots.
This bug dude took us 43 pulls. Was not an efficient kill for us, but we've been getting the rust off. Hoping to pick up speed as we head into the mid-tier! Vectis is almost dead (expecting a Monday kill). We have not added a 4th night or gone over our 9-hour schedule. Don't be fooled into raiding more when you don't have to.
We're looking for a Holy Paladin, Mage/Warlock, and a melee DPS. Spots are limited as we don't run a large roster. Apply today and come join our awesome team!
