Hi pals! It’s been less than a month since our last update and I’m afraid this might be a little overwhelming for some of you. I understand, we typically don’t update this frequently but I was super excited to share the news! We’ve conquered House of Thule and will be returning to our split-raid hibernation soon and it’s likely you won’t hear from us until shortly before Veil of Alaris drops.
As per the ushe, WE ARE RECRUITING! Healers, people who punch things, people who get punched – one and all are welcome! We have some high need and some medium need classes, but we always room for exceptional players of any class! Mosey on over to our forums to apply, or if you have any questions feel free to send Azzira, Talanaa, Dysomku or Froogle a tell in game! If you are a returning player, now is a great time to come get level 90 and gear up for Veil of Alaris!
Now for the goodies!
HOUSE OF THULE DEFEATED IN 11 DAYS!
I’m not sure what the record for defeating House of Thule is, but I’m willing to bet 11 days is it. In the first week we crushed 22 raids! That’s right, 22 raids. Typical shout outs to our DKP guru’s Froogle and Scornn, you guys make magic happen. Big kudos to Rasputyn for the all the monk-math and cat-herding that went into defeating this expansion.
The first tier was relatively uneventful. Evil lizards, evil clocks, evil plants, evil book-burners. We have a resident old white guyTM who was very excited to shut down the Erudin’s Burning scuffle.
(But first, let me take a selfie!)
We split Lilth (Upper House) 6 times! That’s a lot of thot’s. Unfortunately, Russian math =/= real math, and some of our splits ended up with 10 poor souls instead of 12. We also came back a second time and split Lilth an additional 6 times for a total of 12 Upper House splits. (6+6 is 12, Dima. It’s just 12.) There might have been some pain involved in some of this.
Tier 2 was much the same! We smashed Al’Kabor. Miragul’s gave us a bit of trouble due to positioning, but fortunately we have someone in the guild who is a world-renowned artist and helped us through this trying time.

We then moved on to Cazic Thule. Congratulations, Jeffy. Think of that while you’re in Maui.
Terris Thule appeared and scolded us for killing her dad. Then she got butt-sucked through a portal, so I wonder if we might see her soon!
Morell’s Castle was our final destination before Sanctum. We smashed through it the first time and opted to 3-split it the second time around to maximize our keys. Rock throwin’ Rasputyn is a prominent feature in DPSing Sandman down.
Unfortunately, one of our splits goofed and deleted the cure wand for the Stifling Sands debuff during the second phase.
But we conquered it! We defeated all of the progression raids in about 3 days, and then went back and split a majority of them for the second cycle.
We have a policy here at the OGC that if Satoshi dies doing something dumb, we get a DKP bonus. Since there were several events we didn’t test, and this is Satoshi’s first time doing this as someone who nobody heals, I made something for him.
We entered Sanctum Somnium on Sunday night expecting it to give us some trouble. Welp. We completed the entire zone in 3 hours including loot, 2.5 hours between the first and last event lockouts. I knew that Sanctum Somnium was the kingdom of Dreams, but I didn’t even get sleepy.
That isn’t to say that some people didn’t have issues in Sanctum. Event 6 does have a duck emote.
However, Morell Thule put up very little challenge and we smoked him. Big thank you to everyone in the guild who pushed to 90 so quickly, played alts in other splits and kept the energy up to put this expansion to bed. It may have taken longer than Underfoot but the win was just as sweet. In the end, we’re all here to have fun and kill monsters and I think we did both of those things exceptionally well this expansion launch. We are always looking for more people to join the Family!
Other notable things that happened:
Congratulations to Shepherd Ryme, Savior of Bees on server first 90. Bards are broken, y’all.
Congratulations to Catashe for what I think is server first, but definitely guild first speckled bunny!
Congratulations to Melinie on the biggest DKP-dick-drop in the history of OGC.
Congratulations to Blackninja for doing what he does best: eating some ass.
Congratulations to Tacara for fucking up when the Grand Guild Hall goes in.
Congratulations to Satoshi for this somewhat sweet SS that you wanted me to put in this update!
We’ll be around, messing up the House for the next 10 weeks before VoA.
Until next time.
