Midwinter Retires

By Kaowa on Feb. 14, 2017, 2:50 a.m.

After a year and half of careful planning and five months of hundreds of hours of grueling dungeons and raids, we have finally defeated the last boss of The Nighthold, Grand Magistrix Elisande. "What about Gul'dan", you say? Well, in the end we decided he wasn't such a bad guy after all.

Joking aside, this does mean that Midwinter will be taking an indefinite break from progression raiding. For me personally, it's... [Read more]

Mythic Helya was a great boss -- the first really fun and challenging fight of Legion, in fact. It was unfortunate that progression coincided with Thanksgiving. Oh, well, on to The Nighthold!

Blackrock Foundry World 3rd / US 1st

It's been a grueling five months, but we have finally realized the fruits of our labors and are now enjoying what is the best finish for a tier in our guild's history: WORLD 3rd / US 1st. These ordinals are very meaningful for us -- not only do they reflect the improvements we have made as a guild since last tier, but they also signify to us that we are on the verge of being able to compete for the top spot, which is...
