Midwinter at the Mid-tier

It's hard to believe we're already 48 days into Warlords. The new content introduced in this expansion has truly made the time fly like it never has before! Leveling, garrisons, followers, professions, treasure hunting, challenge modes, legendary quests... there's so much to do you almost forget about that thing at the heart of it all - that thing called "raiding"!
But, of course, we didn't forget about raiding. In fact, Midwinter tore into this expansion with a focus on preparation that it really has never had before. Everyone in the guild rose to the occasion, leveling and gearing five toons in two weeks and subsequently crushing our five Heroic Highmaul clears. Mythic week came through, as we knew it would, with all the highs and lows that we've come to expect during progression raiding. Among the highlights for the week was our first world first as a guild, slaying Tectus at the end of our first day of raiding. The rest of the instance, save Mar'gok, fell in due course, as we continued to rediscover our progression raiding legs after over a year off. Mar'gok managed to survive the first reset for us, but once we found our stride, we came through with what was indeed, a very elegant kill.
And that brings us to the new year! After a week off for the holidays, we're as excited as ever and can't wait for Blackrock Foundry and the second half of tier 17! Let's do this!
