Christmas Raid Schedules

Christmas Raid Schedules

Please note that raids are cancelled each of the two weeks prior to the Christmas holiday in December.

Many of our raid team members will be travelling for the Christmas holiday and/or celebrating with friends and family during this time. This is also a time when some of us will have house guests, children who are on Winter Break from school, or end-of-the-year office parties and events to attend. Thus, in order to spare our sanity and create as peaceful a holiday as possible, we are going to take time off as a raid team for the next few weeks.

Raid Cancellation Schedule

Christmas Day (December 25) falls on a Sunday this year.

Therefore, raids on December 13, 16, 20, and 23 are cancelled.

Detailed View:

Week 1

Raid on Tuesday, December 13, 2016 is CANCELLED.

Raid on Thursday, December 16, 2016 is CANCELLED.

Week 2

Raid on Tuesday, December 20, 2016 is CANCELLED.

Raid on Thursday, December 23, 2016 is CANCELLED.

Mythics and Other Runs

Please note that while raids are cancelled these weeks, guild and raid team members are encouraged to continue running mythics and other dungeons/content during this time. There is always ample opportunity to continue building rapport and relationships with your fellow raid team members throughout the year (regardless of whether we are conducting formal raids as a guild).

Raiding Continues

Regular raids will commence again beginning on Tuesday, December 27, 2016.

Please check OpenRaid for the latest information and to sign up for future raids.

Coram Populo Now 2/7 H in Emerald Nightmare!

Coram Populo Now 2/7 H in Emerald Nightmare!

Congratulations to the Coram Populo raid team, which is now 2/7 H in the Emerald Nightmare raid!

Ursoc proved to be quite the angry bear, with bad news to deliver to everyone around him. However, our raid team managed to pull off quite the victory and secured our place and foothold in the next phase of this epic raid. This marks the second victory we have achieved in heroic mode, and we hope to continue this trend as we move forward.

Study Those Heroic Boss Encounters!

Current raid team members should begin studying up on all heroic boss fight encounters in the Emerald Nightmare raid encounter. Before you know it, we will be pushing past the content that you are already well-versed on at current time!

Great Work!

As always, great work, everyone! We look forward to continued progression well into Legion.

Joining Our Raid Team

If you are interested in raiding with us, please join our Discord server, speak with Tehrass (Battletag: Tehrass#1655, TehrassDH@gmail.com), sign up for an OpenRaid account, and review the raid team requirements located on our guild website.

Information about enchants, food, flasks, potions, runes, and other buffs is available on our guild website. Please note that these are not optional and the logs will show if raiders are not properly gearing, using buffs during raid or drinking two potions per fight.

Active raiders should also be looking at OpenRaid (Coram Populo on OpenRaid), Warcraft Logs, WoWProgress, and our raid night replays on Twitch (http://www.twitch.tv/tarcanusfrostbourne).

Raid Night Adjustments (Blizzcon and Holiday Schedules)

Raid Night Adjustments (Blizzcon and Holiday Schedules)

Due to important upcoming events (the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States and Blizzcon), our raid schedule has been adjusted for November.

Please note that the following schedule changes are effective as of now:

For the week of 10/30/16, our progression raid night will be moved to Tuesday, 11/1/16 and our raid night on Friday, 11/4/16 will be cancelled.

For the week of 11/20/16, our raid night on Friday, 11/25/16 will be cancelled.

Blizzcon

Many of our guild members will be attending Blizzcon during the first week of November and will thus be unable to attend our normal raid night on Friday, 11/4/16. Therefore, we felt it appropriate to move our progression night to Tuesday, 11/1/16 of that week and to cancel any and all raid activities on Friday, 11/4/16.

This will allow us to continue to push forward in Emerald Nightmare (H) that week while we prepare to attend/view this amazing annual convention. This will also allow those with a virtual ticket to completely focus their attention on enjoying Blizzcon on Friday without having to divide their attention between the Blizzcon stream and raiding.

Normal raid events and our normal raid schedule will resume the week after Blizzcon.

Thanksgiving

We also acknowledge that many people will be traveling during the week of Thanksgiving and that raiding on the Friday immediately after Thanksgiving would probably be inconvenient or impossible for many of our raid team members. There is already enough stress on folks who are traveling, cooking, and dealing with family obligations that week and we do not want to burden anyone with any additional work (or run with a team that at half strength due to absences).

Normal raid events and our normal raid schedule will resume the week after Thanksgiving.

Keep in Touch!

We hope that all of you who are attending Blizzcon have an amazing time! Please check out our many officers’ Twitter pages and video blogs on YouTube to see what your fellow guildies and raid team members are up to while out in Anaheim.

Safe Travels and Happy Holidays

Have a safe and wonderful holiday this Thanksgiving and safe travels if you are driving/flying anywhere this year!

Coram Populo Now 1/7 H in Emerald Nightmare!

Coram Populo Now 1/7 H in Emerald Nightmare!

Congratulations to the Coram Populo raid team which is now 1/7 in heroic progression in the Emerald Nightmare raid!

Although Nythendra was a bit pesky on heroic mode, our raid team withstood the challenge and defeated the defiled dragon by the end of our raid night on Friday. Our team continues to grow and improve with each raid, and we could not be more proud of what they have been able to accomplish in the early stages of Legion.

Raiding Plans Current and Future

Our plan for current and future raid nights is as follows:

  1. Tuesdays, we shall continue to farm 7/7 Emerald Nightmare (Normal) in our two-hour raid time.
    1. We have proven with last week’s raid that we are able to defeat the entire raid on normal difficulty within this short amount of time. Moar Xavius, moar loot.
  2. Fridays, we shall continue to push into Emerald Nightmare (Heroic) in our three-hour raid time.
    1. There are always things to work on and improve upon both individually and collectively and new bosses present new challenges as well.

Once we feel as though normal mode will no longer serve us, we shall make the switch to progressing through heroic mode on both raid nights (and thus have five hours to dedicate to heroic progression each week).

Study Those Heroic Boss Encounters!

Current raid team members should begin studying up on all heroic boss fight encounters in the Emerald Nightmare raid encounter. Before you know it, we will be pushing past the content that you are already well-versed on at current time!

Great Work!

As always, great work, everyone! We look forward to continued progression well into Legion.

Coram Populo Now 7/7 N in Emerald Nightmare!

Coram Populo Now 7/7 N in Emerald Nightmare!

Congratulations to the Coram Populo raid team which is now 7/7 in normal progression in the Emerald Nightmare raid!

Cenarius and Xavius could not withstand the might of our guild members, and we will hopefully have these two bosses on farm fairly soon. Even with an accidental pull on Xavius, the team managed to down the boss on its first attempt. It is great to see that we have over twenty raid team members with us for every raid night/event. The Legion hype and our guild hype is real!

Our plan is to continue working on normal mode encounters until we have defeated Xavius 3-4 times and can successfully clear the entire raid in one two-hour session. At that point, we will begin heroic mode difficulty progression in the Emerald Nightmare.

Great work, everyone! We look forward to continued progression well into Legion.
