Feng the Deaded

January 24th, 2013

And I thought the 2-headed ogre as a playable race was an april's fools...

So, not entirely unexpected, we managed to shave the last few % off Feng’s healthpool last night, and can now be added to our kill list!

Next up, on tuesday is Gara’jal the Spiritbinder, whom we managed to get a few tries on before raid end.

Good job ;)

Throw a dog a bone, they say. We certainly did!

January 23rd, 2013

.. At least if you judge by the amount of scattered bones on the floor in the killshot ;)

The Stone Guard

Hey.. we're rusty, okay?

Well, I suppose this means that we have officially kicked in the raiding season in Tabula Rasa!

Good job to everyone in the raid. Next one up is Feng the Accursed. We came really close on this one, so.. soon ;)

Tabula Rasa adopted cute, blue dragonwhelp!

November 21st, 2012

So it finally happened! We managed to finish Alex’s legendary staff, and got the guild achivement and everything!

We also conquered all but old Raggy in Firelands on heroic mode, which thankfully speeded up the staff progress somewhat.

Stormwind Event

Thanks to everyone who’d hang in there, and keep going till the end <3

Enjoy your new pets!

New Teamspeak server

July 28th, 2012

I’ve gotten us a new Teamspeak server. I think the old one ran out, and I felt horrible about Elmanther paying for it, when he never used it himself, so I went and got us another one. Use it as much as you like, it’s a great way to keep in touch, while waiting for Mists *wink*

All info can be found in the usual place on the forums (here).

Enjoy!

Not dead yet..

July 25th, 2012

Reboooooorn in flames!

Hey, everyone.

It may seem like it, but the phoenix isn’t dead yet, just in its ash phase. Soon, a small spark will rekindle it, and it will burst out of a mountain screaming “REBOOOOOOOORRRN IN FLAMES!”. Or perhaps I mixed it up with something.. but fact is: We’re not dead. We’re just.. slumbering.

Truth be told; we were hit hard by two dreaded monsters at the same time. Two monsters called “Summer” and “Pre-expansion-lull”. We’ve tried before, and not manged to beat either of them, so naturally, being attacked by both simultaniously is just too much for us.

But, as we all know, we don’t die permanently in WoW, so we just have to spirit res and wait for the sickness to pass.

Anyways, enough with the analogies. We’re back when mists of Pandaria is released. Or at least when 5.0 is out. Hopefully sooner than later. I bloody miss playing with you all!

- love from the Guild Mom, Tri

Addendum: How funny is it that I write this post the day the launch date is announced?! So, just two more months left to wait, guys! Hang in there!

Destroyer’s End

February 29th, 2012

Here we go.. the end of the Cataclysm.

The blast knocked everyone off of their feet, and everything seemed to fade into darkness, even the sound of the roaring ocean around them. Only moments earlier, they had fought the remnants of The Destroyer, the madness within him, caused by the Old Gods. The heroes had not been alone in the ordeal, as the four great dragon Aspects had done their best to aid them. But what can mere mortals do against the madness of the Old Gods?

Thilda looked around her. Time itself seemed to have slowed down, as everyone moved in slow motion. Several of her friends – brothers and sisters of the guild Tabula Rasa – had already buckled and lay seemingly dead or unconscius on the platform. This was what she saw, as the final blast knocked her over, and everything faded into darkness.

Screaming. Someone was screaming. She wasn’t sure if it was a spark of her own imagination, or if it was real. There were other sounds as well.. someone mumbling.. someone groaning. But still.. the screaming as well. Her senses began to return to her, and she felt the cold sea spray on her face. She slowly opened her eyes and to her surprise the sky was above her, not pitch black as expected, but a delicate blue and orange. It seemed that the clouds had cleared and the morning sun was carefully peeking over the horizon in the east. Thilda was still puzzled over the screaming. It sounded so familiar..

Help me!” Phenacite yelled. She had been knocked off the platform, and just barely managed to hold on.

Oh dear..” Thilda mumbled to herself, and tried to get on her feet. Vertigo hit her as she stood up, but a fast healing spell calmed her down, and she managed to stand up straight, and she looked around in the direction where she heard the cry for help.

Phenny?” she called out.

Tri? Tri! Help me! Get me up!”

Thilda managed to pull Phenacite up to the platform again, and the two of them shared a fast, relieved embrace.

The others..?” Phen asked.

I don’t know yet,” Thilda said, ”we have to check on them. By Cenarius, I hope that they haven’t been knocked off as well..!”

A short while later, they had found and counted all of their friends. As if by a miracle, they had all survived the battle, albeit most had injuries of some kind. Phenacite and the priestess, Zahrah, were doing their best to get everyone back on their feet, by mending their wounds and soothing any pain. Thilda glanced at the four dragons, that were slowly getting up as well. Did they seem.. smaller?

And just like that.. The Cataclysm is over, and we’re ready for Mists of Pandaria. I’m excited to see what the next expansion will bring for us.

I <3 you all!

My beautiful army of Tablets <3

Proof!

He used to be Deathwing, The Destroyer – but then he took a raid in the spine!

February 22nd, 2012

Too.. much.. GLITTER!

After a very convincing couple of kills on Ultraxxion and Blackhorn, it was time to have a go at Spin(e) of Deathwing.

After quite a few attempts, where one or the other misunderstood the commands from our (luckily) patient Raid Leader – damn it’s confusing when Boss Mods yells GET SECURE and Alan yells NOT YET, MIDDLE! – we finally made it. Deathwing crashed as the big bug that he is, into the Maelstrom.

You’d think he’d be Therazane’s problem now, but it seems like the Old Gods aren’t ready to let go of their priced stud just yet. We had a pretty neat go at Madness of Deathwing before raid time was up. And we also got to see what happens if he finishes casting Cataclysm … In the utter darkness, it was a relief to see Phen’s reincarnate macro’s speech bubble “I’m up, I’m up!”. Phew!

Well done, homies. One to go!

TR(+1) defeats Warmaster Blackhorn – and that’s no bull!

February 9th, 2012

Long time since we had any news here.. you might think we’ve been resting on our laurels, but nope! We haven’t had any time for that. In fact, we’ve been trying and trying to.. finish a certain legendary staff. Turns out – like every thing else in WoW… it’s a GRIND! But, we’ve started to move closer towards the end, so we can focus more intensely on Dragon Soul. I really can’t wait to get that cuddly little dragon whelp pet.. *daydreams*

Meanwhile, in a galaxy far, far away.. *cough* no.. that’s the wrong intro. I mean.. Ow yeah, we were ON A BOAT MOTHERF.. eh.. Wrong again – but closer this time! :O

We killed some mean old bull on a flying boat.. :)

Wunderbaum - when your boat smells like Bull.

Also.. I will let this image speak for itself. Mainly because there’s no way I can explain it.. o.O

Ehh..?! Piggy... back.. ride? :O

Thanks to the crazy Kamikaze for joining us last night, when we were a healer short (get well soon, Phenny!!)

EDIT: I’d like to add that we had REMOVED the 5% buff for this raid :)

After Twilight, comes the “down”!

January 5th, 2012

Ouch.. that outta hurt..

Ultraxxion – an obvious gear check for the second half of Dragon Soul, was downed by us tuesday night. Although, with just about 20 seconds to spare on the enrage timer, gearing up a little more is probably not a bad idea. We had quite a lot of tries on the Warlord on the Skyfire afterwards, but struggled immensely with it, so I’d say that killing the gearcheck is no guarantuee the rest is a walk in the park :)

We did pretty much walk all over Ultraxxion again wednesday night, though, as well as the first 4 in the Siege, so we’re doing pretty well, here in our 3rd week in Dragon Soul.

Tri and her feared army of tablets!

Hagara the Stormbinder deemed slightly insane. Now admitted.

December 29th, 2011

NoooOOOoooOOOooo!!!

Nice with a raid night where we weren’t plagued (too much) with disconnects, so the ice walls would pwn us..

Second “proper” raid night in Dragon Soul, and Hagara the Stormbinder falls. Ultraxion also came close to meeting his end, but it seemed we hit a bit of a gear wall there, so battling the enrage timer was a challenge. Next week, Inspector Gadget, NEXT WEEK!
