A couple weeks ago, the Old Guard finally managed to down Heroic Kil'jaeden pre-nerf, pre-crucible, pre-Irma, pre-something-else so huzzah for the win.  A bit of an over-tuned fight for heroic mode where a single mistake or bad ability timing sinks an entire attempt quickly and mercilessly.  An impeding Hurricane Irma forced the evacuation for some of that week which caused a few to miss out but the team will make sure their time put into the fight will be rewarded with a kill during the wait for Antorus, the Burning Throne to start up.

At least we still know how to properly pose for a raid kill picture.




I am almost concerned of what the next kill picture will look like....

This kill closes out Heroic Tomb of Sargeras at 9/9.  Not a bad raid instance overall with some really fun fights.  

Time to speculate on when the next raid content drops...





xx But where are his legs?

After our wonderful time playing DJ Hero against Maiden of Virtue, we finally gained access to the catacombs sealed for ages and to our surprise found the Fallen Avatar of Sargeras sealed for eternity and guarded by the Maiden of Valor. Members of the Old Guard prepared for a difficult fight and suddenly noticed he had no legs. Being the valorous raiders we are we just couldn't hit someone when they were down, so we decided to strap on a pair or two of those legs we had taken from Ragnaros back in the Firelands.

After evening the odds (for him), we proceeded to hand him another beat down from which he wont recover and moved on to 8/9 in the Heroic Tomb of Sergeras.

A well done job to all our heroic raiders as all that now stands between us and Argus is an epic fight against the deceiver himself, Kil'Jaeden.

That beat, those lights, this boss... it must be time for the Old Guard to play some DJ Hero against special guest DJ the Maiden of Vigilance. After a few rounds of learning the controls and how to crossfade between tracks properly, we managed to get the crowd fired up and on our side and proved we were the masters of this game quickly rising through the ranks to superstar status.


Having mastered getting our 5 star rank on track mixing we dropped the beat on Maiden bringing us to 7/9 in the Tomb of Sergeras and letting us finally descend into the catacombs sealed for ages below to face that which should never have been disturbed.

xx Recycled art project

We at the Old Guard consider ourselves to be well rounded raiders, and what better way to keep ourselves rounded during each raid tier then to take time during a raid to view some culturally significant art. One stunning piece we recently discovered during our recent raid in the Tomb of Sargeras was titled "The Desolate Host" and Blizzard has done another fine job of taking old boss models, recoloring them while adding a few new abilities, and throwing a generous round of name tags into the mix just to keep things interesting. This excellent example of "upcycling" successfully manages to bring out the cultural divide between the uptown elite and the downtown oppressed all while keeping each to their own side; both unifying and dividing a raid group all at once.


After concluding our viewing, we all decided that this art project needs to go back to the trash, promptly smashing it and leaving it a broken mess on the floor. This brings us to 6/9 in Heroic Tomb of Sargeras and is another job well done.
