Karazhan Defeated!

The gang went back into Karazhan today, after a rapidly quick few days raiding earlier in the week. After spending a relatively short (compared to other bosses) period of time learning the fun of Nightbane, he was defeated.

At this point, we’d like to thank every player that has stepped into the instance to help the guild progress and defeat this instance. Even if you pinch hit, or came along for some rep (bench warming) – your efforts contributed to this clear.

We also ventured into the Servant’s Quarters to clear the Beast, to stop the neysayers claiming we haven’t killed him:

Well done guys!

SI 1, Netherspite 0

Progression speed increases when I disappear, so with that in mind the group of troopers defeated Netherspite recently. The ghostly looking dragon with beams of light is gone. Personally, our secret strategy to progression is the presence of orange tabby – present in the majority of first kill shots since 2005!

The second group is also making great progress, moving past Curator and onto Aran.

11/12, one to go!

Prince Dethroned

On top of Karazhan, there’s this guy that summons infernals and generally freaks you out with flying spinning axes. We had some shots at him the other night, and came back today determined to cleanse Karazhan of this foul beast.

It would appear we succeeded. Unfortunately, we can only take ten – so special thanks to those that missed out on the kill but broke the encounter in.

Aran – is dead!

In Karazhan we continued, and encountered across this fellow dressed in Arcanist. Angry that he was captured behind a creaky door (protected by stupid respawning mobs), he unleashed frostbolts and arcane missiles and drew fiery circles around us.

Didn’t seem to matter much to the end result, though:

Thanks again to those who did the earlier breakins and missed the kill.

Insert quirky title here

Spurred on by those with more money than people like me, we continued our journey in Karazhan. Many of
us have nightmares of Knightswift using capitals to get us to pay attention. So, we wish to repay the favour
by showing a picture of Knightswift falling over a ledge.

That aside, we made good progress in Karazhan this week. At this point, we’d like to thank the players
that were present for any of the warm up bashes at these bosses but for many reasons, were unable to be
present for the final kill.

We present to you:

and finally Illhoof:

(who earlier gave us a notorious low percentage wipe after he chained our tank up)

Remarkable effort again to all involved, especially considering Monday’s raid was almost cancelled due to lag.

Recruitment Open

We are currently looking in particular for 1-2 Warriors types to complete our raiding roster. Other classes are welcome to apply if they are committed to raiding, however we definitely have no room for Rogues, Mages, Druids or Warlocks.

We have completed Gruul’s Lair and Karazhan, and are looking to proceed onwards in content. Next stop is Magtheridon’s Lair, but we need an extra warrior to handle the encounter.

Applicants should:

1. Be available on Australian time, preferably Eastern
2. Be skilled and geared appropriately for raiding
3. Be mature

As one of the longest running guilds (~2 years) on Proudmoore (US), SI is home to a successful group of players with a track record of accomplishing content.

Prospective applicants should at the first point of call, speak with Tekhen ingame. He will ask a few questions before directing you to the Recruitment forum. Server transfer applicants are welcome if they are finding it difficult to raid on their server because of US timezoning.
