Well, hey there. It's been a while since I've posted to the OTR News. So much to do, so little time!
Highmaul came and went. We left it at 7/7 Normal, 6/7 Heroic, and 0/7 Mythic (because we have lives!). Good times were had, purples were earned and sharded, and we've happily moved on to Blackrock Foundry.
And how are we doing in the Foundry? Well, as of the day of this post, we're 8/10 Normal, and tonight marks our first journey into BFR on Heroic mode! Good stuff!
Since we've been getting recruitment questions recently, I'd like to make sure we're really clear: recruitment is currently closed at the moment. We're running consistently with 19-23 people each night, and we're progressing at a very healthy rate.
TL;DR? That's alright, this selfie from Gille pretty much sums everything up!
Well, the big day has come. Most, if not all of us, have leveled our main's to 100. We've geared up. We've got our legendary ring's up to 680. Now, the party begins!
With that in mind, a quick reminder for everyone:
We raid on Tuesday and Sunday, from 7-10pm server (central) time.
You are expected to be ready for invites at 6:55pm.
Flasks (both normal and greater) are available from the guild bank. Take what you need, but be mindful that we're early in the expansion so we're not fully loaded on materials for food, flasks, potions, etc.
Please read the posted strategy guides, and expect there to be a lot of wiping since we're learning brand new bosses.
A positive attitude and a good sense of humor isn't a request - it's a requirement.
It's been a pretty great expansion for OTR. We came back together at the end of Cataclysm, moved to the Horde (Lok'tar Ogar!), and ended up clearing all of the raiding instances together - and competitively.
We've ended Siege of Orgrimmar at 14/14 Heroic, and 4/14 Mythic, everyone has at least one heirloom, and we've got a bunch of great new recruits.
For Warlords of Draenor, we've still got some slots open on the roster, so if you're interested in joining the Ravens, apply now!
The new site offers a lot of features our old phpBB didn't, including improved opportunities for recruitment, galleries we can all contribute to, and some interactive features like inline links to items in the WoWDB, like Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker. Cool, right?
There's a lot of great stuff to discover, and a lot of fun to be had. Sign up now!
