Sometimes raiding is hysterical (raiding outtakes)

We’ve been progressing on mythic Jaina for 2 weeks now. We’re at 200 pulls and seeing third phase, so we’re actually doing pretty well in comparison to some other guilds. But it is a hard slog, without a… Read More

On the move

It’s been 2 lockouts since Realm disbanded. It’s been weird not raiding. I played a whooole lot less. The break was nice in a way, but to be honest one of the main reasons I wasn’t playing as… Read More

The un-break-up

Those of you who follow my twitter account will have seen that this past week was quite the rollercoaster. I’m personally still reeling a little bit from everything that happened (though I am overly dramatic, I know). On… Read More

Realm takes on Uldir

Last night, the first raid of Battle for Azeroth opened. Uldir is here! It’s a great looking raid. But more on that in a moment. Before we headed off, I wanted to get a team picture of our… Read More

Legion Raiding gallery

There’s nothing better than getting your guild mates together and taking down some bosses. A collection of team kill shots and videos for each of the raids.

Raiding with Realm

I’ve been wanting to do something for my guild for quite some time. I’ve grown so fond of my guildies, and I wanted to say thank you.

Titanslayer, btw

Well, we have officially “finished” Legion. Last weekend our guild finally killed mythic Argus, giving us the Cutting Edge achievement. It took over 600 pulls and countless frustrations, but we made it. We are now Titanslayers (a title we… Read More

Raiding and streaming and healing, oh my!

I mentioned in my 2017 wrap up post that raiding had gone a bit weird for awhile with yet another guild disruption and shifting and all that. I’m not going to dwell on it- the past is in… Read More

There is only one word- EPIC

~*~*~*~*~SPOILERS AHEAD!! This post contains images and discussion about bosses in the new Antorus raid. If you do not want to know anything about this raid, please turn back now. ~*~*~*~*~ Anyone who has been reading my blog for awhile… Read More

Mythic not-so-sassypants-anymore!

We did it! After all the dramas we have gone through as a team over the past couple of months; after losing so many players and recruiting and trialling others, we are finally at a point where, not… Read More

Finding Family

Well, I find myself here once again where the team I’m raiding with has crumbled.

Into the Tomb

This week the Tomb of Sargeras opened. ~*~spoilers ahead~*~

Mythic Gul’doooowwwwwwwn!!!!

Well, it took us three weeks, lots of tears, frustration, swearing and hysteria, but we did it – Mythic Gul’dan is defeated! We got our Cutting Edge achievement, and new title Vengeance Incarnate.

Lost

Truth be told, I’ve been feeling pretty lost in WoW lately.

It was the best of times, it was the busiest of times!

Getting back to work has been really great – knowing I’ve got money coming in again to pay bills is a big load off my mind! But it does come with the downside of a lot less game time.

Z and Cinder’s blog challenge topic 8: changing mains

It’s a sad time for anyone who feels their class has moved beyond something they can connect with, and I feel for anyone who has to go through it.

A valorous victory

Thursday night was our last formal raid night for the year. With most people being unavailable for Christmas/New Years/family time it was our last chance to try and get at least one mythic boss down in Trials of Valor.

The Dreamer

It’s been a pretty successful week of raiding this week!

Splishy splashy woes

The new raid week started for us last night and we absolutely powered through a full heroic clear in no time at all. Then we went in to mythics and cleared Mythic Nythendra on just the second pull…. Read More

Pre-patch adventures

I knew going in to this new patch that there would be some big changes, and that things might not work. So I didn’t hold my breath that things would be ok.

The price of talent – let’s bargain!

Today Watcher Dev made a post on the forums about removing the cost of changing specs (that is currently on the Legion beta) but instead implementing a cost for changing talents. I’ll post both of his comments below… Read More

A light in the dark

I don’t think there is ever going to be a time that I’m not worried about being good enough in this world. When it comes to World of Warcraft, I’m always worried that I’m not a good enough… Read More

Defiler’s End

This week, I got an achievement I did not expect to get. This week, I killed Mythic Archimonde. Because my new guild only had a few kills on Mythic Archimonde, I didn’t expect to be in there for… Read More

At the end of April

It’s been awhile since I posted. I’ll be honest, I’ve been busy and not really having a brilliant time of things so haven’t had a lot of energy to write. That’s not to say that things haven’t been… Read More

Navispammed!

The hunt for a new guild/raid team is still going strong, and I’m not having any luck at all yet (which will be the topic of a future post, I’m sure). However it hasn’t been a complete loss…. Read More

A home to call my own

Well today I finally made a decision about where I want to be in Legion, and have decided to look for a new guild and raid team. I have loved being in Deadline – the people are amazing…. Read More

You beta test this!

This week I was a guest on the Girls Gone WoW podcast with the ever lovely ladies, Raven and EJ. As usual, I had a brilliant time. You can check out the episode on their website here (or iTunes,… Read More

A question of valor

So there has been a couple of edits to the patch notes for 6.2.3. I wrote about my initial thoughts on 6.2.3 in a post last week (which you can check out here if you are so inclined!)… Read More

Bye bye, Heroic Archimonde!

Last night was a good night of raiding. We had made our way through all of Heroic Hellfire Citadel on Wednesday night so that we would have all of Sunday evening to work on getting Heroic Archimonde down… Read More

Thoughts on 6.2.3 (without the table flipping)

Edited: I misread the cross-realm information – Cross-realm Mythic raiding is EXCELLENT news! It’s quite daunting waking up to see twitter exploding with opinions about some WoW news that was released while I was asleep. One of the… Read More

Podcast goodness

Earlier this week I was a guest on the Girls Gone WoW podcast! It was a really fun time, even if I did get up just after 4am in the morning after a late raid night and then… Read More

An Officer and a Raid Leader

Those of you who follow me on twitter will know that a few weeks ago our Guild Master/Raid Leader decided it was time for him to leave WoW. I was devestated to say the least. He’s an awesome… Read More

Hellfire Citadel – go team, go!

So raiding has been going well. We’re currently 10/13 just on normals, but it’s been good fun. The people who need loot have been getting it, so we should be good to start heroics soon (potentially would be… Read More

How to stop being crap?

Last night was raid night, and to be quite frank, it sucked. It sucked for me and because of me – not really anyone else. We did have a few issues with some key people being away, but… Read More

Mythic Blackrock Foundry

I’ve been raiding with my new team for a couple of weeks now. We are currently 5/10 mythic, which I am incredibly happy with. Sunday last week we managed to get down Mythic Flamebender Ka’graz and Mythic Gruul… Read More

Oh the trials

Last night I did a raid trial with the team Zeirah is currently trialling with. The evening was for progression on Mythic Hans’gar and Franzok. I am trialling as an elemental shaman, and boy did I feel out… Read More

All about the raids

How Blackhand died Some of the guys in our guild like to record our raid nights. Thankfully they recorded our kill of Heroic Blackhand from the other night. Thought I’d share it so you too can marvel at… Read More

I’ve been feeling a bit crap about things lately. It’s why I haven’t been posting on here all that much. I’m going through a “I completely suck at this game, why do I bother playing it” phase. Mostly… Read More

Hatespark

Oh hello, Hatespark! Don’t we look pretty? I’ve wanted Hatespark the Tiny ever since I saw his little model come out. The drop rate to get him is sooooo low (0.03% chance, according to Wowhead, though I didn’t… Read More

Healing Heroic Highmaul – The Butcher

The Butcher getting in to the Festive Spirit! I’m putting together some short healer-based posts for each of the bosses in the Highmaul raid tier. Hopefully they’ll be useful for some fellow healers (my focus is on restoration… Read More

Paragon World First Mythic Highmaul

Paragon have cleared Highmaul! I’ve been watching this race pretty closely.  It’s been fascinating. For the longest time Ascension, who are an Australian guild on the same server I’m on, were kicking butt and clearing things super fast…. Read More

Raiding again

blah! Tumblr ate my post. Now I have to try to remember what I said! A couple of weeks ago I applied to a guild on my server. As my gear was too low for current tier, I… Read More

Leading the Flames

5.4 has been out for 2 weeks now. I’m still enjoying it a lot. The Timeless Isle is a lot of fun – it’s like a giant Easter Egg hunt! And of course there’s the new raid zone,… Read More

I quit raiding

This weekend I quit my core raiding team. I’m pretty devastated. I really love raiding and I enjoy the team I raid with. However, raiding times were Saturday and Sunday, 11am – 4pm, essentially wiping out the entire… Read More

Lei Shen

WE DID IT!! Tonight my little team got Lei Shen down and got the “Ahead of the Curve” achievement. It’s all I wanted for them – for us to all have that achievement that says we worked hard… Read More

Iron Qon

Soo…. we downed another 2 bosses tonight. Iron Qon took us a little bit, but only because our dps was a little low so if we lost one person we’d hit beserk. When we did get the kill… Read More

Dark Animus + Primordius

And another two bite the dust. I missed updating about Primordius last week as I was heading off for holidays, but we got him down after only 2 attempts. And then tonight, Dark Animus went down. It was… Read More

Durumu

Durumu is down! So proud of these guys. It was the third week we’d been able to have a crack at getting this guy down. Each attempt we got a little closer, and the mistakes were fewer. We… Read More

Ji-kun

And Ji-Kun down, too! Quite a successful weekend. Love that we all had feathers for the photo 🙂 Except Shogun who’s napping from all the hard work hehe

Tortos

So these are my guys! And this was our Tortos kill from last week. We had actually gotten him down the week before but I hadn’t thought to take a screen shot until last week. So proud of… Read More
