After our Ragnaros kill we put up a thread where we asked people tell us what they wanted to know about our Ragnaros kill and t12 progress. I collected all the information and the questions and will now try to go through your requests in this short blog with the help of zyn, Deva, Kruf, Wakoz and Hermanni.

As you can imagine, I've been thinking about the whole 10/25 debate. It's come up many community sites and we appear to get our knickers in a twist pretty fast about it. What's 'Better', what's 'Easier', what's proof of 'Awesomeness'? I've done both raid sizes and liked them both for different reasons. Difficulty seemed to be a less straightforward issue for me as it partly depended on my experience with that fight and my role in the fight.

So we decided to take a peek at the 10-man side of raiding. The plan was to run a 25-man normal mode raid in tandem with the hc 10-man up to Ragnaros in order not to waste any legendary pieces and get the valor points.We picked a balanced (performance-wise) raid comp that could deal with the first six bosses, made a slightly modified comp for Ragnaros, and went to beat some pixels to the ground.

[This is not the 10/25 comparison].
I've been considering writing about this for a while now, and now seemed like the perfect time. I'm sure I don't need to tell why.
I've never really understood some of the arguments people were (and still are) making in the 10 vs 25 debate (and elsewhere!). I'm pr ...

Paragon's first legendary staff, Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest will go to Diivil, one of the players that has been in the guild since the beginning. Even when the item is still on it's epic state I wanted to talk to Diivil and ask him a couple of questions on why it was him who got the quest, and how has the questline been treating him.

So, the boss is now dead. What happens now? As most of you know, we want to respect the race by not releasing anything related to our strategy before world second kill. This means we won't publish the kill video, tactics guide, meters, or Bigwigs mods just yet, but we'll do that in the future.
We've also planned on writing something blog-like about the work we did to get the kill. It still feels like it's hard to know what you actually want to see. So please tell us what we should talk about, what you'd like to know about the past race and we'll try to work on that.

This little rant is sponsored by all those people coming to whisper "hi, % on ragna?" or something similarly stupid while we're raiding.

First week of heroic mode progress in Firelands is finally over, and it's time to look back at the events of the past week. Here's what my memory weakened by sleep deprivation and stress can come up with:
