An illusion… what are you hiding?!

Something’s not quite right!

Well no, not really, everything is in fact fine. Those two quotes are a good hint as to what we have been up to lately – the main citadel of Suramar, Nighthold, is the name of the game! It is inhabited by the Nightborne and killing tall people is every bit as satisfying as expected. The gnome approves!

On a marginally more serious note – “third half” of Legion’s first tier is now opened and we are having a blast. We ended week one on the final boss, mr. Gul’dan heroic himself. We did not have the time to finish him off, but this time around we can say without a doubt that it is just because we ran out of time. Probably should have skipped normal mode clear, but we thought – better safe than sorry, besides – tier items.

Having returned to Nighthold in week two we got to Gul’dan, this time in a timely manner. After some small adjustments and fine tuning of the tactics for the early phases we needed but five pulls to get the job done. It felt about as satisfying as it should – nothing fancy, encounter felt balanced properly, but hey – at least a cool little video followed.

With Gul’dan out of the picture we did what any sane person would do – we magically made the bosses respawn, this time in full awe, adult mode and we stepped in to mythic.

Here is hoping next update follows sooner than later!

Guarm guards not

Having killed Odyn we swiftly moved to Guarm. We worked out a tactic we liked, we fixed dispells and we killed him. It was not exciting.

Second (third?) half of this tier, Nighthold, is out soon, so we decided we will not attempt Helya for now. We also have some turbulence in the roster, so we shall use the time left to fix that.

We will be back once we get involved in the Highborne killing business. Gnomes rejoice!


After what seemed like an eternity consisting of small eternities we have defeated Odyn. Last raid of 2016 as well. It felt like we were trying this boss forever, however a quick fact check proves we did not in fact wipe all that much on it. Just a feeling you get when most pulls last about 10 minutes. That’s what happens when a guild with a masculine majority gets to learn a fight that has to do with colors.

Absolutely terrible loot as well, so a cherry on top. With Nighthold coming sooner than later, our plan is now to get Guarm dead and pause progression until the new instance is out. Helya will have to wait for another day to die.

And hey, Guarm kill ought to be shorter than Odyn’s phase two, that alone is enough to make us excited about it!
