Salutations, friends! I apologize, this update came a bit later than expected. Unfortunately, it was locked behind an artificial invisible gate and I had to wait out the timer before posting. Welcome back everyone! We’ve tromped through Rain of Fear and now it’s farm time until Call of the Forsaken! If you’d like some music to play while perusing the update, please click here.

Great news! Rain of Fear brought us to 100 but Call of the Forsaken has no level cap increase! That means if you have been on the fence about returning, now is a perfect time with bonus XP and the fact that you have 4 months to get to 100! We are recruiting, so head over to our forums to check us out or send an in-game tell to Azzira, Wrexyou, Froogle or Nokkard!

Let us begin!

RAIN OF FEAR DEFEATED IN 12 DAYS!

Rain of Fear is a super fun expansion! Between all of the quest and achievement rewards you can get, the SHINIES, and the sheer amount of raid encounters available; there is so much to do. Without mini’s or ToV, there are 17 raid bosses to murder. Throw in the ~5,000 dragons and you’ve got yourself a party of non-stop loot.

The launch went about as expected, with only Tier 1 & 2 releasing initially. Thankfully, they forced the unlock for Tier 3 & 4 about a week and a half later, so everyone who was at work in the middle of the day really appreciated that! In all seriousness though, we are very happy we did not have to wait four weeks to kill Xaric.

Please join us in the re-enactment of our adventures through Rain of Fear! Picture it, 54 people in gumboots and raincoats, umbrella’s at the ready for the storm ahead..

We started Launch Day #1 in Shard’s Landing. Shard’s Landing is probably one of my favorite raids purely because there’s a murderer. Back on Fippy┬«, 95% of the murderers ended up being women in the guild. Because of the nature of the event, Satoshi was kind enough to set up a betting ring for kronos and platinum. You know who’s been having a case of the stabby stabbies lately?

(Priests, it’s the priests.)

So we murdered some people, saved King Tormax, punched a random dwarf in the coot-coot, murdered two dragons that start with the letter Z, burned some trees and stuck some pigs. It was overall a very successful night considering the average level in the raid was 97 and we one-shot everything! Shout out to everyone who worked hard on getting tasks done to make our raid night quick and easy!

Launch Day #2 we discovered half of our guild crashes to shrouding and we poked some brownies, minotaurs and eyeballs! This night was also a slam-dunk*!

*Fireballs are not friends.
*This is still technically a 1-shot

In reality, Chapterhouse and Xorbb went really well! At this point we’re able to get Findlewill down before she even casts her disgusting Fireball, and we’ve gotten TWO (2) bi-folds so far!

Launch Day #3 we were still in the midst of trying to get T3&4 unlocked so that we can continue on our journey, ultimately we decided to hit up Temple of Veeshan.

It’s pretty much the same thing as last time but now Vulak is slightly harder. He was the first mob we had a bit of trouble on, but we got him down and threatened to delete Ngreth’s shoulders.

With everything on lockout, it’s time to focus on what really matters. Beautiful, wonderful, not at all difficult to find shinies. Collectibles, if you’re a heathen. OGC is all about community and we even have an easy access Shiny House where people can deposit duplicates and take out what they need.

At this point I’d like to take a moment and give a huge shout out and thank you to Froogle, the bootylicious rogue that does our DKP. He. Puts. In. Work. If you see him on the streets, you give him a tip of the hat, a slap on the butt and move on. Froogle is a protected asset, and most definitely an appreciated one.

Launch Day #12: It’s at this point on a Monday, mid-morning, T3 & T4 is unlocked. Those of us who were at home busted through the missions so we could raid on our off-night. It was an incredible turn out and we want to thank our members for their nerd-level dedication. We one shot Chelsith as well as Luclin.

I am ashamed to say that the only screenshot sent in by members for the front page update of Luclin was this:

Thanks, Chimero.

After Luclin, we went straight into Heart of Fear and started our night off with Glimpse. Our tanks had a bit of an issue on how to properly place the goos (or gooses if you’re Tacara and high on pain pills), and we also had a Satoshi Homocide Bonus where he killed one of our members by telling them to run away when they should have stacked.

Captured: Both bad goo placement and Dima’s amazingly bad Gina trigger that tells people to run away when they should have stacked.

Event 2 is a glorified trash clear, the only thing we discovered on that event was how to place more than one guild banner at a time. Honestly, the explanation of the event took about as long as the event did.

Event 3 was probably our biggest challenge this expansion, but it was a fun fight. We wiped twice and on our third try we got it, everyone having been deafened in voice comms from the excitement of our guild leader. It was a solid win!

Might I propose a new OGC webpage banner?

Overall this expansion has been a good ride, each event has a fun unique mechanic and plenty of things to do outside of raids. As per usual, thank you to everyone here who logs in and puts in the work to crush these expansions so efficiently. From me, to you, we’re thankful you’re here.

There is a solid chance the front page will be in hibernation until the New Year, but never fear! We are still kickin’ it, so come join us! We’d love to have you.

In the spirit of inclusion: Happy Holidays, Happy Halloween, Happy Thanksgiving (or Thursday, for our Canadians), Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year’s, Happy Donut Day, Happy whatever you do or do not celebrate. Happy all of the things! Fuck bitches, get money. Kill monsters, get loot.

Our Halloween table. PLEASE TAKE ONE!
Thanksgiving Feast!
YEAH, we put our tree up EARLY. WHATS UP?

Other notable things that happened:

Congratulations to Satoshi, our bonuses for DKP is now seriously out of control!

Congratulations to Satoshi, again, for being oddly accurate predicting server up!

Congratulations to Not Ryme for server first 100! Maybe it was Forgoth?

Congratulations to Madmanlizard for not clicking accept on your item before Forgoth kicked the instance!

Congratulations to Tacara for server first Lord Soptyvr illusion and server first Master Scavenger completion!

Congratulations to OGC for polluting the Guild Lobby with our beautiful banners!

Congratulations to Barudin on your promotion!

And finally, congratulations to Puma for making a comeback, I guess?

Ask and you shall receive!
