Garrosh Hellscream (Heroic): Down!

Fourteen bosses down. US #69 (giggidy giggidy). What a great ride this tier was. The huge ups and downs in boss difficulty were pretty impressive. Everything from two shotting a heroic to a few weeks worth of pulls. In the end, everyone stuck with it and we managed to pull through.

Our roster has been absolutely amazing this tier. Everyone should be proud of themselves for finishing this off. We’ve had a ton of consistency, dedication, and input from all of our players. And, ultimately, this game is all about your team and consistency. The people you bring with you from week to week, whether or not that’s 7 days a week or 2 days a week.

A huge thank you to our raid leader, Khatian. This tier had a lot of bosses that required coordination, cooldown timings, and keeping everyone in line when necessary. You’ve always managed to do all of that without going overboard with things.

Another huge thank you goes out to the Officers: Denk, Mikalya, and Renost, who have supported him throughout the tier. There are tons of little jobs that go in to the maintenance of a guild and a lot of the times they’re taken for granted, but our raiders want you to know that we appreciate everything you’ve done to keep things running smoothly.

And last but not least … a huge thank you to the raiders. The minions who make these kills possible. Tanks, Healers, and DPS. We’ve all done a fantastic job pushing these bosses over, working together, and consistently showing up to put in the effort.

Let’s get this place cleared a few more times, collect some BoA’s, mounts, titles, and cash for everyone … and start the preparation for Warlords!

If we killed Garrosh on Heroic Denk told us that he would sing a song for us. We held up our end of the bargain and so did he … this was the guild response.

Yougibear managed to have a birthday every time we pulled Garrosh as well. I’m not entirely sure who started it, but it became pretty funny.

Mikalya has some fetish with ‘pooping’ …

Dead: Paragon's of the Klaxxi (Heroic)

To start, we’d like to give a huge nod of appreciation to everyone involved in getting these guys down. This fight, in our opinion, was a huge step up in difficulty from the previous bosses. Every individual was required to be on top of their DPS. Awareness for not only yourself, but also for those surrounding you throughout almost every point in the fight. The healing requirements pushed even our healers to their limit.

All that being said, after a few fleeting glimpses at victory, we inexorably managed to chip away at the Klaxxi and pushed them over this Thursday. Congratulations to the guild as a whole on the kill. This kill put us at a very respectable US #74. Congratulations to those who were awarded loot (Takkarma, Fuzzball, Huxtable, Misanth). And also to the people who were not able to be there for the kill, but helped during progression through the repetitive wiping and learning process.

Personally, I can’t say that it was my favorite fight this tier. Hardest? Definitely. Enjoyable? Not much. Ultimately, fights like this come down to massive amounts of preparation, cooldown organization, timings, boss ability alignment, and personal responsibility. We’d like to thank everyone who participated in the forum discussion. Getting Khatian the information he needed to steer this ship in the right direction and lead us to a very well earned kill.

Good job all around! Now everyone put on their big girl panties, because we’ve got one more to go! Can we make it before the release of Warlords? Challenge accepted.

Adventures In Raid Chat

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

From everyone here at the Solution family we’d like to say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone. It’s been a great year for our raiding team and our guild in general.

This is a great time to take a look around and look at everything we’ve accomplished both in game and out of game. To appreciate all the good friends we’ve made along the way. And to spread a little happiness throughout the game.

Enjoy the time with your families! Be careful out there!

Draw My Things and Random Raid Chat

We’ve been working on getting Siegecrafter Blackfuse (Heroic) down for the past couple weeks; which is why there has been a lack of updates, but we’ve managed to collect some random raid chats as well as some funny new Draw My Things that a few of our members play during our break time. Let’s get Siegecrafter down and in the mean time … enjoy the LOL’s.
