  • This week's plans

    As a consequence of what happened with LFR, the accounts that looted bosses from multiple runs have been suspended until the next reset. As a direct result, we'll be joining the 25-man race a week later.
    We will not attempt to gather a 25-man raid for the week. The several accounts that did not partake in anything illicit are clear, so for this week we are forming a 10-man group with help from ex-members and friends. We will go back to doing 25-man as soon as we can, i.e. at the start of the next reset.

  • An LFR Apology

    There has been a lot of misinformation going around, so to clear things up, here is a truthful account of what exactly happened with the LFR and what we have to say about it. The patch hit EU servers on Wednesday. We started off with our 5x Firelands runs to wrap up legendaries and called it a night. For Thursday, we had an elaborate plan to run a personal LFR raid for every main character to get the maximum amount of loot ...

    Yet another Raid Observer update from the Guest Contributor, Ladan, on how the raiding race is (not) going so far! Life post-LFR, the emergence of trolls, and more...!
