Last night was an excellent way of starting things up this expansion. While we were a bit rusty for the first two bosses, I really saw an improvement as the rest of the night progressed. Well done to all of you!
There were a lot of mechanics to look out for this time around. Once everyone got to see what was happening, things just seemed to click. I think Il'gynoth will remain as the fight to improve the most on. I look forward to seeing that fight again with all of you!
Now that we are 6 of 7 bosses down in Normal Emerald Nightmare, the next step will be to finish normal mode next week. Study up on the fights we experienced last night, refresh yourself pre-raid so that we don't have to do it for everyone, and I'm sure we'll see Xavius fall next week.
After that, we'll probably give it one more shot on Normal mode to finalize what we've learned, and then push into Heroic. Slight changes to mechanics will exist, but I know this team can handle it.
I was very happy with what I saw last night. Lots of personal responsibility was placed on all of you, and I was happy to see how each of you reacted. There are some tweaks that still need to occur, but overall, well done to each of you!
Next week I will be expecting players to be gemming, enchanting, and consuming flasks. Please seek out players within the guild who may have a profession that helps better yourself as a player.
Please Continue to Sign up:
Please continue to sign up via the in-game calendar. I will be using this to invite players and determine what I need for raid composition. Again, if your name isn't on the calendar and invites have gone out, you put me in a crappy situtation of choosing (on the fly) who I am bringing into the raid.
Moving to Discord:
We'll be moving to a new VOIP program - Discord - either next week or the following. I would recommend you download the program now and test it out here and there. If you have questions, many of our guild members already know a great deal about it. Ask around.
Short and sweet today. Great job to all of you! Feel free to join pugs to mess around in Emerald Nightmare!
Orders stand: Be excellent!
