The Backstory: The Trial of Wrath

Anyone following this blog from day 1 will know that the reason for me starting to blog was to write about my progress in WoW and while that has sort of happened I’ve never really caught up with my pre-blogging story. My last installment was, as has become tradition, many months ago and in it I got got to the beginning of the Trial of the Crusader in terms of…

The Backstory: Encore

Oh my UI with super huge buttons, badly positioned unit frames and 8fps!! Anyone following this blog from day 1 will know that the reason for me starting to blog was to write about my progress in WoW and while that has sort of happened I’ve never really caught up with my pre-blogging story. The last installment was 10 months ago and got to the end of Ulduar in terms…

Project Titan Update: Illogical Actions

Back in October 2012, I set up a plan to attain the Herald of the Titans, Feat of Strength. This involved setting up home on a new server (Defias Brotherhood) with my Horde charcters, rolling a new priest and setting up a new guild, including a new website. Thankfully I was able to recruit some friends from Exhumed, and through the realm forums and some advertising on the Rawrcast and…

Project Titan Update: ReExhumed are raiding!

Our first official raid night and a valiant band of 7 heroes entered Wrath raiding at the beginning and we kicked some ass! The team was Artherion, Cumingallove, Evangelysm, Heideroosje, Krius, Shifthead and Zombaal. The Necropolis fell first as Kel’Thuzad and his minions failed to stop us, although they did take more than a small bite out of Zombaal who seemed to be their main focus. He has therefore become…

Project Titan: A Guide to Killing Algalon The Observer

Yes this is 2012 and yes Alaglon was way back in 2009, but for Project Titan, Algalon will be proper content! We’re still looking for some players who are interested in getting the Herald of the Titans title and Feat of Strength, so if you’re keen and able to bring a level 80 Horde character to the party and preferably to the Defias Brotherhood server, get in touch with my…

UPDATE: Project Titan

Things have moved on with Project Titan, I decided to go Horde as me and most of the folks from Exhumed haven’t experienced raiding Horde. After a suggestion from my pal Gricey, I’v e gone on an RP PVP server, Defias Brotherhood EU and have even created a guild, ReExhumed. The reason I selected that realm in particular was, according to WoW progress, that it was the most advanced raiding…

Project Titan

I have a burning ambition to do something challenging. Some may call it stupid, others pointless but it is something that I want to do but I need help from 9 others to achieve. There is no time limit on getting the team together to do it though. You’re probably all thinking what the hell is he on about. OK so you may not, but regardless.  I’m going to share…

How I Finally Got Val’anyr

After 3 years and 4 months I have finally gotten my legendary mace, Val’anyr, Hammer of the Ancient Kings and I appreciate that it is an expansion too late but my first fragment was gained on April 15th 2009 (the day Ulduar was introduced in Patch 3.1) thanks to one of my healing crew passing up the chance for the fragment, thanks Spicefang!  Finally last week I hit the magic…

The Backstory: Deadwood Days (pt 3)

It really is strange, I made this blog because I wanted to tell the story of my progress in WoW and I am not even close to telling the story upto the point I started the blog some 27 months ago. Anyway, the story so far can be read in the following posts The Backstory: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10, Part 11, and Part 12, which ended with me…

635 days

No, not my total days played, but rather the number of days it took me to clear all raid content in WotLK. Sure I had defeated all bosses before over all of my characters but the Halion kill was on an alt and Evlyxx still needed that kill for me to consider him, and the rest of the WotLK raid content beaten. Sure I still have to kill a few…
