Ashes of Tirisfal Rocks Onyxia and Hakkar

Posted in Achievements, Guild, Raiding on July 27, 2009 by Kor

Lok’tar friends!

Yes, you heard right, Ashes of Tirisfal rocked two Old World raids late last night.  We started out strong and got stronger as a few people logged on and we filled up a party-sized raid.

Ashes prepares for battle at the maw of Onyxia’s lair.  Be afraid, dragon, be very afraid.  From left, Flanksteak the Tauren Warrior; me, as Kor the Orc Death Knight; Grubs the Tauren Death Knight; Jaarka the Orc Hunter; NotTomBreaver the Ghoul, As-yet-unnamed Spirit Beast; Slig the Tauren Shaman.

Six minutes later, the proud guildies stood over the fallen corpse of the Black Dragon in victory!

Lok’tar Ogar! For the Horde!

AoT - Onyxia 003 - Onyxia Corpse

Emboldened by our swift victory, Ashes decided to pay a trip to the Jungle Trolls of Zul’Gurub and make our presence known.  Our wonderfully healy Shaman, Elder Sliggeh, had to depart.  Something about Thrall I believe.  But the rest of us pressed on and soon, the Priests and Priestesses fell before us and we stood, poised to destroy the vile Serpent God.

AoT - Hakkar 001 - Before the Kill

Without much ado, we promptly turned around and brought the pain.  The result not unexpected.

AoT - Hakkar 003 - Hakkar Corpse

While these may not be the freshest cabbage, the razor’s edge, or even interesting to anyone, it was the first time a lot of us had even seen these bosses and the official first kills for Ashes as a guild (despite some individuals having seen them downed before).  And it was totally spur of the moment.  A few of us got these fine things here:

AoT - Onyxia 002 - Achivement

AoT - Hakkar 002 - Achievement

Jaarka wrote about it too and you can read it here.  Oh, one last thing.  You and you.  You’re on notice.  Ashes comes for you!

Under the influences of Bloodlust, yesterday in vent:

I have so much haste I’m dps’ing back in time…

 Today in gmail:

…I’m more comfortable dps’ing at this point: non-relativistic, time-travel, moonkin boom boom pow is really fun. But I can heal, if I have to, I guess…



That is all.

Return of the Horde?

Posted in Guild with tags , , on July 9, 2009 by sylus

How are ya Azeroth? It’s been a while, and all of a sudden it looks like 4theHorde is back! Several of us have been taking a bit of a break, which is always needed. It does appear that the break may be coming to an end for some of us.

Two days ago I had the opportunity to level one of my death knights. It was awesome. When I started, the mini DK was sitting at a measly 64. By the end of the night I was busting at the seems as I sported a larger number by the ol’ name… 68!!! Yes, you read that right, 4 levels in one day! Woot fo real!!!

It’s nice to be writing again as well. I’ve been trying to boost my personal blog over at world of sylus, and that has been fun. Now with me playing a bit more, I can come back to 4theHorde with a vengeance!

Keep it sexy Azeroth, Sy is back!

A Gear Post That Even Nim Will Wanna Read

Posted in Discussion, Lore, News, RP on July 8, 2009 by Kor

Now this is a gear post that even Nim will want to read!  That’s right baby.  So I did some looking at some of the new gear and found out that Blizz decided to name the Tier 9 sets after major lore figures.  So the Shaman sets (Horde side) are named Thrall’s [gear] and the Warrior sets (Horde side) are named Hellscream’s [gear].  How freaking cool is that?!?!1! I totally want my Shaman to be running around in Thrall’s gear.  And if I had a high level warrior, it would be super cool for him to be wearing Hellscream’s stuffs.  Yes, cause there are more than one stuff, therefore stuffs.

Anyways, since I know how much Nim loves lore and how much lore loves Nim, I know he’s gonna get a kick outta this if he hasn’t already seen it.

If you wanna check out the sets, you can see them here and here.


Oh, and Brak is back!
