The KingSlayers

We were a little late to get credited with a World First, but the guild last night executed our first defeat of Arthas Menethil, better known throughout Azeroth as the Lich King. It is definitely a challenging encounter albeit not as challenging as it once was. But a good time was had by all participants: Ailpein, Gwynhefar, Matoaka, Mayrial, Melvyl, Naco, Qyandri, Roszdhu, Sazbot, and Staychyld.

Congratulations on Level 20

I just thought I would take a moment and congratulate everyone of reaching the milestone of Level 20. It has taken a while, but it means we are most of the way through the leveling process. Just 5 levels left.

And a few other bits of news…

Raiding – We have been doing a bit informally on Sundays Nights of late. Largely BC and Wrath Raids, but when we get enough people geared, we are going to make the leap to returning to Cataclysm content. Which brings me to…

Instances – We are putting together a regular schedule of nights set aside to do instancing. It won’t be limited to just maximum level, but it should be a good chance for everyone to run Heroics in a lower-pressure environment.

Social – We had a party planned last month to celebrate the Third Anniversary of the Guild. Unfortunately, it had to be postponed but hopefully it should get rescheduled soon.

If you haven’t logged in lately, feel free to come back. If you haven’t joined us yet, we want you to feel welcome.
