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, there we were, a proud group of 20 heroes, thumbs in belt, looking all smug at the Imperator, “Hey dude, we’ve got a 695 ilevel. How ’bout you just give up already?”
Long story short, he didn’t. And it became quite a long story indeed. But while we were battling one of the biggest waves of connection issues known to raider-kind, and were trawling and weeping over the almost non-existent remains of the semi-hardcore recruitment market, we managed to progress continously. And as so often before, we just had more patience than the boss
We beat Imperator Margok and his buddy Cho’gall on the 2nd of June 2015. On the 2nd of June 2011 we had beaten Bastion of Twilight’s Cho’gall heroic. That post works quite well today still
Cho’gall at first didn’t seem to be “a Burning Dawn kind of fight”… you know, careful positioning, interrupting, swapping to adds, burning hard…. phew… not our strong points.
But we spilled the blood of the old god. Nay, we killed the spilled blood of the old god! And somehow we managed to stay focused on the fight and take him down, in a forest of tentacles among a large amount of balls that would normally make a number of people go afk and touch themselves furiously.
So yeah, good job, people! Keep it up for the last
two three non-Burning Dawn kind of fights
All that remains to be said after these wise words is…. balls, giggity.
In the voice of a well-trained train station announcer, Maahe said “Please move now to track 2″. And like the well-trained trainspotters that we are, we moved, and we killed.
Sutaka cheered, Adrya cried from happiness… It was a super emotional moment for all of us Especially those with 706 tier shoulders, obviously.
That skeleton isn’t from us by the way. It was already lying there when we came.
Kromog… a loong story. A story of dying, a story of finding your balance as a team again, and a story of more dying. And obviously, this story ended with most of us dying, too. Except for Holas. Cause Holas really could not be having this any longer and took matters into his own hands.
Once we had all recovered a bit we took selfies too of course
This is me taking a selfie with Ciscero in the background taking a selfie
And this is Ciscero taking a selfie with me in the background taking a selfie…
… everyone’s gotta be good at something, right?
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.
