Burning Dawn is a World of Warcraft guild on the European RP-PVP realm Defias Brotherhood. The guild was created on day 1 of the server and has been around ever since: As a large 40-man raiding guild in Vanilla, in TBC as more casual guild in a raid alliance, during Wrath and Cataclysm with a very competitive 10-man team and as purely social guild in the earlier months of Pandaria. Now we’re back in the progression-game, as 2-day Mythic raiding guild.
Fight ‘em back den!
These lines are burned into my brain. I “sing along” when we pull. But I found a new appreciation for Pol and Phemos after spending an extended period of time with Tectus and his Sindragosa-sound-alike adds.
Anyway, WE were the ones fighting back. Big time. And we won against the two special ogron kids and the mountain. Some people still suffer from slight headaches for having mountains dropped on their heads. But they’ll recover, no worries
I’m also happy to report that since Siege we’ve recruited a whole bunch of attention whores who religiously remind me to take screenshots! So here goes…
.. it would be to raid Mythic and that’s why we’re here now
We’ve been planning for this since March, three quarters of a year! We’ve done some great stuff so far but now we’re finally here and officially a Mythic raiding guild
Many young tiger have ingested citizens.
Mostly youthful thirty-year-olds hop into chaos.
Make your time heavenly interesting, Curt!
Also, Zonked is an attention whore.
After lots of challenge modes, even more missions and countless quests, it’s raid time again This first reset we managed to clear Highmaul normal mode and kill all but the Imperator on heroic.
We used some advanced tactics from the internet like this one for Twin Ogron…
.. and in the end there was lots of loot and happiness.
Here’s some pictures of us in Highmaul…
… and this lovely one that our very own Skoop handcrafted for us!
Early in 2014 a wandering priest decided that she needed to return home. So she went to her friends and she said “I want to go home. No place is as perfect for me as that. Do you want to come with me?” And her friends said yes. And she went to those who had shared her home with her and she said “I will bring it back. Will you come home, too?” And they said yes. For they were Dawners at heart and they, too, wanted to return home. More people came when they heard of the return of the Dawn. And finally, the priest came home.
In March 2014 we went on our first raid as Burning Dawn since Dragon Soul, with the goal to be ready when Mythic-raiding would come. We had rerollers, we had people who came back from long breaks. We had pathetic gear. It was tough but we didn’t give up and we downed Garrosh normal. So we moved into Siege heroic. Experience stretched from only-done-lfr-before to 13/14hc. But we made it work. And then the big goal was within our reach: clearing Siege 10 heroic before the big pre-WoD patch! But night after night we wiped, reset after reset we extended. Technical issues, health issues, server issues. We saw them all! But we didn’t get disheartened, we kept going and we succeeded.
I am so proud of every single one of you! I am immensely thankful that you were all there and that we did this together. Not only those who were in for the kill, but also – especially – those who were there on the way and those who backed us up. You Dawners are the best <3
Just this once... because I'm being sentimental... a proper killshot.
Just kidding And he isn’t even really dead so…
