Definitely miss you guys. Obv the best MMO experience Ive had. Glad to see the guild flourish like this.

How many OG members are still active? Thought about getting back into it but there's only so much time in the day and I have a 5 year old now so....

Playing a little Destiny tho, gt is WoahVaughn on XBone if anyone wants to shoot stuff together.

Not much just living life. I saw on my facebook page that Midwinter was doing the live raid. So I decided to come check you guys out. Its been so long since I have talked to anyone from Mystic Bond. I do talk to Unthe once in a while when we are both on the game.

I remember when I was on Ysera in wrath. You guys were referred as the guild who "went their own way, and always came out ahead". You developed a sort of schtick for glory meta acheivements first. I pugged with you guys a few times, and it was always fun.. never a dull, or stressful evening.

With all that said.. and with all that MW has gone through, it is really awesome to see you guys on top of the world (race) this far into progression. It was hard fought, and well deserved, and just wanted you all to know that MOST of the people who are watching you, support you! HARDCORE supporting you! You guys are doing what hasn't been seen since Premonition, and to a lesser extent VODKA (though they went horde, so fuck them).

Wow that's awesome. Thanks for the kind words! Ysera was a great server for a long time and kind of died and got boring when Alpha and Frozen Myst left.

Wow.. I cant believe MW is still a guild. That's amazingly awesome. Being in MW feels like a lifetime ago.

So now that the race is over, and you guys are coming down from the Afterglow of an amazing finish, I have to ask:

1. How was the transition to hard-core long hour raiding? It was never really you guys thing... and listening to the streams it was obvious something sounded different in the voices.

2. Aside from getting US first kill (which is a great achievement on it's own), do you guys feel like the move to longer hours was worthwhile?

3. What did you take away from this tier.. whether its a learning curve, a new way of seeing fights?

Hello everyone!

I get a random yearning from the days of old to play WoW, and what do I see when I look into how the old gang is doing? #1 in the US! Congratulations!

Indeed. I have no illusions about ever coming back to MW, even if I began playing WoW again. I know I left on, well, terrible terms (putting it lightly). That doesn't mean I don't miss hanging out with you guys, and I just wanted to congratulate you all. Looking into it, it's long overdue. You guys really kicked it up to the next gear.

Keep it up!

Awesome job on your progress guys! Although I wasn't with MW very long, I have some very fond memories of early Ulduar progression with you! Best of luck!

Soooo... does anyone remember when we left the DOOMHAMMER server under the guild name Mystic Bond, and reformed on Ysera as Midwinter due to a bit of drama...


Woooo... so long ago... so much nostalgia...
