Burning Dawn is a World of Warcraft guild on the European RP-PVP realm Defias Brotherhood. The guild has been part of the server’s raiding community since the very beginning, over 9 years ago. It provides a cozy home for players who are interested in any or all aspects of the game. Our raid team is about “Quality over Quantity”, clearing content before major patch days on a real 2-day schedule. It could position itself solidly among the world top 100 2-day raiding guilds.
So, we went to Gruul on Tuesday. Then the Gods of Internet Connection (or maybe the Demons of Internet Connection? What do I know..), they decided that, no, we are not meant to kill Gruul that night and we had to stop. Clearly, the thing to do was to collectively sacrifice small animals named Pepe to aforementioned deities, and lo and behold, we killed Gruul on the first pull of the night.
It was a moving night for us. First we killed Hans and Franz (Melee Move!), then the Flamebender (Ranged Move!), and we still had time left over for a farm kill Hans and Franz was the bigger achievement here. We spent all night on them Tuesday, but started out strong right away this time and, well… when they finally died we were all quite relieved. Flamebender felt much more like an early mythic fight than H&F. Either way, it was a very enjoyable raid as you can see in the happy faces of our raiders
Beastlord… 8 minutes of boring. And then you wipe. 8 minutes of boring – bam! – you’re dead. Yeah, you almost got him there, just 4% left. So try again. And again. And again.
Very special fight design on this one. And not a friend to the temporally limited
Yes, his name was Oregorger. Not Ogre-Ogre, not Ore-George, and also not Ogrlogrlogrl. That’s not his name!
Once we found out his real name, however, it was like in Rumpelstiltskin and he ripped himself in half. It was actually quite gory. Orygory.

We also killed Ko’ragh recently-ish, for completeness’ sake I’ve now mentioned it
We were a bit late to the party cause we went to others first. When the Dawn parties, the Dawn parties hard! And in the end Blackhand was so partied out he just flopped over. We might or might not have taken some things from his house, what with the opportunity presenting itself, but hey, who wouldn’t? Right?
We wanted to take a cool group photo of us all, but seems he was already unconscious there. What a sissy.
Also, a little bit of criticism here… We had some serious issues with selfies that night.
How come only Skoop took them? And only 2?? Seriously guys, I expect a bit more effort next time!
