ROTLO & Friends:
ZG - Snake boss downed first go without any deaths! Bat boss taken down on 4th try - extraordinary teamwork shown by all present. Raptor taken to about 35% on first go but we had to abandon due to a shortage of time. Had we been able to try again I believe we'd have taken him.

Another fantastic raid smile.gif

Sunday 14th January 2007

ZG - ROTLO and friends

Snake - Down first try, no deaths.

Bat - Down first try, 4 deaths.

Raptor - Down first try, no deaths.

Spider - Down first try, 3 deaths with only 18 people present.

Tiger - On our second try we got him down to 15% in phase 2, with only 18 people present.


Today was really extraordinary, and undoubtedly the best raid I've ever been on. It really was a pleasure to be achieving so much with such great people today smile.gif Our nemesis the raptor boss was killed on first go and couldn't even claim a single casualty. Compare that to last week smile.gif

We've moved on astronomically over the past few ZG runs, and have gone from struggling with the 'beginners' side of ZG to starting the 'pro' side now. That tiger boss is bloody hard, and I am amazed that we managed to take him to second phase 15% with only 18 people - this was really something special.

I'm so proud of what we did today - the teamwork was amazing and everyone did exactly what they were asked to. It was really nice using ts too - thanks so much for sorting this out for us Welg smile.gif

Misstaken - you led us brilliantly, and it really showed in the quality of the run. Thank you so much for your efforts. We couldn't have done it without you smile.gif

ROTLO members and friends - you roxxxxxxxxxxxx!

On 16/1/07 ROTLO took two groups into our first instance on Hellfire Penninsula.

Starting as we mean to go on, both groups cleared all three bosses on their first run with minimal wipes tongue.gif

Nice start to the Burning Crusade, gratz to all!

Sunday 4th February

ZG - ROTLO and Friends

First 5 bosses cleared in just over 2.5 hours. No wipes. Panther taken on the second attempt after a short break, and then we moved on to Hakkar.

We gave it a few goes and on the last time got him down to 42% health before he enraged. I for one was bizarrely quite pleased to finally see what this is like, and have a nice screenshot where he hit me for over 22k biggrin.gif

As always, brilliant teamwork, brilliant fun, and brilliant leading. Not only from Misstaken this time, but also from Talos.

I eagerly await the next run!

Posted by: Rahven Feb 5 2007, 08:04 PM
Monday 5th February

ZG - ROTLO and friends

Gruul's Lair - Raiders of the Lost Orc & Liberalis

Gruul's Lair cleared once again, including Gruul being killed on the first try.

We then ventured into SSC for the first time ever! We had no problems whatsoever with the trash and gave The Lurker Below two attempts, the second of which saw him go to 82% with only 22 people in the raid group. Not bad for a raid which was not only our first go, but wasn't planned either!

Thanks very much for coming along guys - you all did great, well done!

Monday 7th September - Ulduar 10

General Vezax killed, on our second ever try!

Initially we were uncertain that the raid was going to go ahead tonight due to a lack of tanks signed, but Meggido and Paladinshand agreed to test their tanking offspecs and we ventured in to try our group out on Razorscale, Ignis, and then Freya. As all went so well we decided to try General Vezax. Our first try resulted in him being taken to 1/3 health but we wiped due to an unlucky combo of healer death and tank DC. So we tried again, and he died!

Big gratz everyone, it went very smoothly and afterwards we almost also got Yogg-Saron into his second phase!

Massive thanks to all of tonight's raid members, especially our impromptu tanks smile.gif

12/14 Ulduar 10 wink.gif

We learned each phase in turn, getting better and better each time until poor old Yoggy couldn't take any more wink.gif We killed him with 3.5 minutes to spare and got the http://www.wowhead.com/?achievement=3008 achievement too!

Brilliant work all who were there and big thanks to everyone who helped us clear the instance up to him too.

We have notes on the forum about how we did it, and tips and tricks for the fight so please make sure that if you are planning to come along in future you check it out smile.gif

Ulduar Hardmodes

Our first night of proper attempts on Thorim hardmode after almost completing it by accident earlier this week saw a successful take-down!

Unfortunately, I got rather too excited and forgot to take a screenie wacko.gif so until the next time, here's a placeholder of when we killed him on normal

user posted image

Check out my sig for the achievement smile.gif

We also moved on to Freya and did the precursor to her hardmode by leaving 2 elders up, earning us the http://www.wowhead.com?achievement=3178. As it turned out, we 9-manned this in the end due to a very early healer death. Bring on 3 elders next time!

Gratz and well done!

Ulduar 10 Hardmodes

Despite raid start being held up we made really good progress tonight!

Our first ever attempt at the Iron Council hardmode (Steelbreaker last) resulted in their demise. One-shot! /flex. Here's a nice picture taken just after the boss despawned angry.gif

We then moved on to Hodir and downed his hardmode on the first try of the evening!

Afterwards we moved onto Freya to try her 3-elders hardmode. We made very good progress and she should go down next try.

All that's left for us now in Ulduar 10 is Freya HM, Mimi HM, General HM, Yogg HM and Algalon - watch this space!

So that's 4 new kills this week. Thanks to everyone for a brilliant week, we've really enjoyed ourselves and learned a lot of new tricks!

Twin Val'kyrs who died on our first night of trying them!

So that makes us 4/5 ToTGC.... getting very close now. Had we taken Anub'arak we'd have gained the http://www.wowhead.com?achievement=3808 Achievement too, but alas time overtook us.

He dies next time tho /flex

Sunday 31st January - ICC 10

Tonight after starting to make some progress on Professor Putricide but then using up our tries, we decided to go and give Blood Princes a try.

At first the fight seemed very hard, yet after accidentally coming up with a new tactic due to someone dying, we killed them! 9-man too since Thandarass was busy cleaning the floor with his face.

ICC 10 7/9 now! Putri's days are numbered, as are the Blood Queen's. See you again soon!

Putricide died at our hands tonight biggrin.gif

The old bugger died within 90 minutes of us beginning to try him tonight, and when we killed him all ten raiders were still alive!

Sunday 28th February - ICC 10

On 28th February we headed into ICC again and took down everyone's favorite vampire boss, Blood Queen Lana'thel. Once discovering that the key for us to sirvive the second air phase was delaying the bites slightly, and learning to breathe it actually seemed simple. Of course that didn't mean the screams of triumph were any less than usual on VC wink.gif

So that left us at 9/12 ICC 10.....

Posted by: Rahven Mar 9 2010, 01:07 AM
Sunday 7th March - ICC 10

On Sunday 7th March we had our first researched attempts on Valithria Dreamwalker, and completed the encounter on the second go! We used three healers, two on the dragon only and one for the raid. Thanks to the great tanking and DPS we found this setup worked well for us and allowed Pala and Sera to go nuts on Dreamwalker wink.gif

user posted image

This, of course, meant that we could move onto Sindragosa who we got to the third phase on our second attempt. A few more attempts saw us run out of time with a best effort of 21% left on the boss. Now we have a refined tactic that works for us it's just a matter of time until she's down too.

And that leaves us at 10/12 ICC 10 folks! Great work to all who've been raiding recently and who've helped us along the way to this point. Only ~1.2 bosses left in ICC now wink.gif

Posted by: Rahven May 2 2010, 09:20 PM
Sunday 2nd May - ICC 10

And then finally, on this day we laid waste to the dragon we had come to know by a thousand swearwords.... Sindragosa.

user posted image

We had a great team who were all both skilled and committed and in the end, she just couldn't beat that.

With wipes of 19%, 16%, 13%, 14%, 18% and then a horrifying 3% we knew we had it in us, so we took a deep breath, focussed and her death was our reward. Well that and the chance to see the Lich King for real!

We had 3 tries on LK, with our second taking him to 69%. Watch this space for further news! Logs at http://www.worldoflogs.com/guilds/17011/


ICC 10 11/12 - what a brilliant raid, well done!!

Posted by: Rahven Jun 21 2010, 10:05 AM
Sunday 20th June - ICC 10

Last night saw the reward for months of tireless work from all of our raiders, as Raiders of the Lost Orc downed the Lich King. We did it on the 6th try of the night after an agonisingly close wipe a few attempts before - we must have had a few k left to take him to 10%! - and we did it wearing 10-man gear. This made us the first guild on the server to do so, and took us to 58th strict 10-man EU guild for progress. The achievements we popped for doing this took us to 43rd EU guild, and to an amazing 104th in the world.

We are incredibly proud of this achievement and would like to thank everyone who was present not only in this raid, but in all previous raids, helping us to prepare for this epic encounter. We'd also like to thank those who haven't raided with us but have provided moral support, cheered us on, provided mats for fish feasts... the list really is endless.

Thursday 1st July - ICC 10 heroic

Our first voyage into ICC 10 with mains went pretty well and resulted in a kill of heroic Lady Deathwhisper! We managed to down her on our 5th attempt after having some add problems. At this time we were still 10-man strict too, which meant that our rankings went to:

We then moved onto Gunship, but as that's not really any different to normal mode we decided not to take a screenie wink.gif

On Sunday 11th July, we headed back into ICC for hardmodes with a somewhat unconventional group. No mainspec tanks and only two mainspec healers. Still we gave it a go.

We took down Deathwhisper on heroic again, Gunship (ofc) and we claimed our first kill of heroic Rotface! Not only that but we 3-shotted him. Here's a pic, tho I'm afraid in the excitement I didn't manage to take it before the corpse despawned. Suv makes a good stand-in tho...

On Tuesday 13th July we downed Blood Queen Lana'thel on heroic 10-man!

One of our first few tries saw an agonising 4% wipe, then 2% and we knew we could do it. It was a pretty tough fight but we did it, and we did it without heroism and without a main spec tank smile.gif

So that means we're now 4/12 ICC 10 heroic!

It also meant that we made it into the top 120 guilds in the world smile.gif

Thursday 15th July - ICC 10 heroics

Another visit to ICC heroics and we walked away with not one, but two new kills!

After Cass found an alternate strategy for Lord Marrowgar we gave it a try and refined it a bit before it led us to victory!

user posted image

We then 1-shotted Deathwhisper heroic and lolship heroic, had a few goes at Saurfang but decided to do him on normal due to the lack of ranged classes we had, 1-shotted Rotface heroic and moved on to our first tries at Festergut heroic. Oh, and killed him on our second try wink.gif

Well done everyone! Big thanks to all, especially those who came along and helped out at short notice or in offspecs etc.

ICC 10 Heroic 6/12!

Tuesday 28th July - ICC Heroics

We headed back into ICC this week after a small break due to raiders being unavailable etc.

We got our second kill of Marrowgar hc, then did Deathwhisper and Gunship hcs before moving on to Deathbringer Saurfang. Jeko kindly went boomkin for us, meaning that for the first time we had 3 ranged DPS for the fight. A couple of tries later and we claimed our first kill, also getting us the http://www.wowhead.com?achievement=4628 achievement.

user posted image

Spirits lifted by this, we moved on and killed Festergut and Rotface on heroic before moving on to give Blood Princes heroic our attention. It took us a try to get used to the Shadow Prism dynamic of the fight (added on heroic) but then second try they were down! This got us another achievement, http://www.wowhead.com?achievement=4630.

user posted image

We then moved on and downed Blood Queen heroic again. Meaning we'd downed 8 heroic bosses with 2 new kills in 3 hours. We're pretty pleased with that! It also meant that we moved firmly into the top 100 guilds in the world for strict 10-man progress, and into the top 40 for EU guilds.

Well done everyone! Big thanks to those who were there and those who weren't there but have helped in their own ways smile.gif As always, the logs can be found http://www.worldoflogs.com/guilds/17011/.

Oh yeah! We went back to give Twilight Council a kicking and did just that.

user posted image

They are so down.


9/12 and making good progress the last few weeks. We also had 3 attempts on Cho'gall and got him to 30% on the last one, which was pretty good considering we'd not researched the fight before the raid. Pretty sure we'll have news on that for you very soon!


Posted by: Rahven Aug 1 2011, 03:03 PM
Monday 13th June - BoT

BoT cleared with our first kill of Cho'gall!

The adds proved our toughest challenge but thankfully our wonderful ranged DPS took care of them pretty good.

user posted image

10/12! That's our first end boss of Cataclysm down and was our last before patch 4.2, which nerfed the content. We'd have liked a few more weeks to take Al'akir and Nefarian but are very happy with what we achieved. Go RoTLO!

Posted by: Rahven Aug 1 2011, 03:17 PM
Monday 18th July - ToTFW & BWD

After a few Firelands trash runs and Shannox attempts keeping us busy we decided to head back to the older content and finish it off.

First up was Al'akir, who was so unbelievably easy after the nerf the shock made us forget to take a pic sad.gif Here's a consolation screenie:

user posted image

So Al'akir was down on the first attempt post-patch. Pretty frustrating as we'd started coming close before the patch and the whole fight was then trivialised. Oh well, we moved onto Nefarian and we'd not attempted him at all before...

It was still a tricky but very fun fight that required a few attempts to master. Props to those who downed him pre-patch smile.gif

user posted image

So that was us finished on the old content. Thanks for coming along for the ride chaps, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did smile.gif Keep your eyes open for Firelands news soon - at the time of writing we have Shannox to an agonising 1% so it won't be long now!

Thursday 4th August - Firelands

We went back into Firelands tonight with a couple of new people and a fresh idea for tactics. It worked a treat and we downed Shannox on the second try of the night. It actually felt easy /doh

First Firelands kill, and very satisfying, especially for a certain gnum who cleaned house.

RoTLO 1/7!

Monday 8th August - Firelands

We headed back into Firelands still buzzing from our Shannox kill and ended up coming away with our first Beth'tilac kill! Once we knew what we were doing it was 9 wipes to learn and perfect and one to kill that spidery ass.

2/7 Firelands, go go RotLO!

Thursday 18th August - Firelands

Firelands was kind to us this week. Thursday saw us down Lord Ryolith for the first time:

This was a fun fight that took us a surprisingly small amount of time to get used to and we killed him on our 12th pull.

Then on the Tuesday of the same raiding week (23rd August) we downed Baleroc for the first time:

user posted image

Another very fun fight, quite manic but our DPS managed to keep their order on the shard very well and we got the kill. Our kill was on attempt 8 smile.gif

Firelands 4/7!

Posted by: Rahven Oct 7 2011, 11:25 AM
Thursday 6th October - Firelands

After a few weeks of RL taking us away from raiding we headed back into Firelands with the goal of downing Alysrazor.

We bumped off the easy bosses pretty quickly then set to work on the firey bugger. It took a few attempts to refine our technique but we could see we were making progress and sure enough, Alysrazor went down.

user posted image
No mount though, bastard! wink.gif

We had 20 minutes of raid time left so went to get some practice attempts on Majordomo. Or so we thought.

Our first attempt on Majordomo, with none of us really knowing what was going on, we got him to 50%. So we stayed a few minutes late and had a second attempt, which turned out to be a kill. Yep, second attempt smile.gif

user posted image

So we stand at 6/7 Firelands now. Just Raggy to go! Expect news soon.

Our thanks to all who have helped us get this far, and big love to Dani for last night smile.gif

Oh, those skeletons were already there when we got there...... Yup.

Then we moved on to have a bash at The Spirit Kings, killing them on lucky pull 13, but more than that. In another RoTLO tradition we downed them on the very last try of the night. Wheeeeeee!

Heart of Fear

On our second venture into Heart of Fear, the consolidated learning from Monday made Imperial Vizier Zor'lok seem bizarrely easy and we downed him for the first time on our second pull of the night, and Suvvy didn't even die. What a fun fight!

In the meantime, that was us at 5/12 and 19th on the server for progress. Watch this space for more Heart of Fear and MV progress.

An extremely satisfying kill if ever there was one, and a great credit to the minds in this guild.

This left us at 6/16 and raring to go on Elegon.

Monday 10th December - Mogu'shan Vaults

After a blistering raid on Thursday which saw us down all of the content we'd killed so far (6 bosses) in 3 hours, we headed back to MV to put in some time on Elegon.

At first it seemed more difficult than our tries the previous week but after a while we got into a rhythm, minimised the damage we were taking and got to phase 3 consistently and then downed him.

user posted image

Very happy with our progress we moved onto Will of the Emperor for our last hour. On pull six we downed the encounter. Last try of the night. RoTLO style.

Another fantastic night and some great work from our guildies. We're now at 8/16 with MV finished, and 20th on the server.

Thursday 20th December - Heart of Fear

Knowing that'd we'd only have one raid this week because of darned Christmas, we decided to try and make it count by heading straight to HoF. We dispatched the first two bosses quickly and faced up to Garalon. We tried a few different combinations of kiters and extra DPS tactics and found one that worked for us, resulting in a kill on our 23rd attempt on this boss (ever, not on this one night!).

Unfortunately, two of our members had fecked off before taking this. What's the big hurry? Just enjoy the kill, jeez.

Afterwards we still had time to run back to MV and kill 4 bosses /flex

So this kill leaves us at 9/16 for the tier and 18th on server. Not bad for a guild that only raids twice a week, eh? smile.gif

Monday 7th January 2013 - Heart of Fear

We doubled-up on HoF (dropping MV) for the first time this week to see if we could get a new kill.

We did!

It was very close (I think we got this 4 seconds after the enrage timer) and it stretched us, but we got it.

Wind Lord, down.

That takes us to 10/16 T14, and 17th guild on server!

Thursday 10th January 2013

We lacked a raider tonight, so rather than cancel the raid we thought we'd see what we could do with 9 people, and two newly specced tanks. The answer:

9-man Stone Guard
9-man Feng the Accursed
9-man Gara'jal
9-man Spirit Kings
9-man Imperial Vizior
9-man Blade Lord

/guild flex


Also, thanks to all who came along, I had a lot of fun smile.gif

Heart of Fear

We decided to extend our raid lockout this week for the first time, to try and down Amber Shaper. We managed it on the first raid of the week smile.gif

So now we're standing before the Empress, at 11/16 and 19th guild on the server. Here's to another kill soon!

Monday 11th February 2013 was a pretty good day for Raiders of the Lost Orc.


Heart of Fear

After a collaborative effort of people working on their gear and tactics (huge thanks to those who contributed to the discussion on the forum), we downed Grand Empress on our 10th pull of the night. Once we managed to get through the other side of P2 with everyone intact we knew it was possible and it was just about clinging on until the bitter end, which turned out to be very sweet.

user posted image

So there we stood, Heart of Fear completed, with just over an hour of raid time left.

We headed to Terrace of Endless Spring:

The protectors were our first foe and they lay dead at the end of our second pull.

user posted image

Next up we took a shot at Tsulong. He was marginally more challenging but still lay dead at the end of pull three.

user posted image

So we went from 11/16 to 14/16 within three hours! No time was left to attempt Lei Shi (our favorite RF boss) so watch out for that next week smile.gif

Monday 18th February

Terrace of Endless Spring

We started a fresh run tonight and decided to give elite protectors a bash. Well it's easy to see why they aren't considered THAT elite - they were down on the third try. Afterwards, we killed Tsulong and then moved onto our bestest bud Lei Shi.....

Thankfully it didn't take long and once we sorted out how to deal with the elementals we downed her on the 11th attempt.

15/16 and only Sha left!

Monday 25th February

Terrace of Endless Spring

Another fresh run and we burned right through to Sha. We struggled with the platforms at first but then everything suddenly fell into place and we killed him, on our 7th ever pull.

And there we are, all normal mode content down! See you next week for heroic modes.

Well done all and thanks to everyone who supported us on this journey - you know who you are smile.gif

Throne of Thunder

Our first run into the new instance was fruitful with a kill of Jin'rokh the Breaker. Had my logs been working I could have told you exactly but I think we killed him on pull 6 or 7.

user posted image

We moved onto Horridon and got onto gate 3 so expect some more news soon..

For now, RoTLO 1/12 ToT and 10th on server.

Throne of Thunder

After more attempts than we would have liked, and some experimentation with tactics, we finally downed the beast that is Horridon.

As a reward for our efforts he dropped the Thunderforged spirit ring (gratz Alkaid!).

A big thanks to those who helped us get to this point.

2/12 ToT

Monday 15th April 2013

Throne of Thunder

After a few weeks of work, adjustments and research we found a strat that worked for us and refined it til we downed the bastards that are Council of Elders.

Huge thanks to all who spent the time to research tacs and work hard on their gear to get us this kill smile.gif

ToT 3/12

Monday 22nd April 2013

Throne of Thunder

After deciding to start the raid a little late due to raider availability, we went back to put some time in on Tortos. It was as if someone had flicked a switch since we last were in the instance, and we downed him (her? it?) on just the second try of the night in a perfect attempt without any casualties.

user posted image

Woohoo!

ToT 4/12

Thursday 2nd May

Throne of Thunder

After a few raids of farm content and a number of attempts on the next boss, we headed back in for a farm raid and ended up at Megaera very quickly. After walking over the other bosses, we downed Megaera for the first time on our 20th ever pull.

user posted image

Since we'd done all of this and still had time to spare, we moved onto Ji-Kun and put in 3 attempts, the best taking us to around 50% so expect to see news soon!

ToT 5/12 - almost halfway!

Monday 13th May

Throne of Thunder

We had kind of a good raid this week. Monday saw us get our first kill of Ji-Kun, which we bagged on our 8th ever attempt.

user posted image

Buoyed by this, we moved on to slap Durumu around a bit. He didn't prove to be much of a challenge, and died on our 7th go.

user posted image

Two new bosses down, not bad! Moving on, we went to try Primordius. Without expecting too much, we threw ourselves into it and he died, on our SECOND pull.

user posted image

Yep, three new boss kills in one night. Epic.

ToT 8/12

Throne of Thunder

So after a while of struggling over summer with 8/9 signups, we finally got a raid with 10 people smile.gif After being so close to downing Dark Animus with 9 people, it was little surprise that we downed him on our first try with a full team. Well, Joe solo'd him really.

user posted image

Then we headed over to Iron Qon for our first attempts. He died on pull 16:

user posted image

Two attempts on Twin Consorts saw us get within a few percent of a kill. Next time!

After a lot of pain - RoTLO 10/12 ToT

Posted by: Rahven Sep 9 2013, 04:32 PM
Thursday 5th September 2013 - Throne of Thunder

We got yet another raid with 10 people, and Twin Consorts bit the dust on our first pull of the night, and third ever pull.

user posted image

We are in the last week of the Tier. All that's left is Lei Shen. We had 17 attempts and got to 30%. We have two more raids to go. Wish us luck smile.gif


RoTLO 11/12 ToT

Monday 9th September - Throne of Thunder

Well we did it - Tier finished.

Lei Shen didn't take long on our second night, and died on the third pull of the evening (20th in total).

user posted image

Huge thanks to those who signed up to make it possible. And to those who stuck with us through this tier. We're really pleased to have pulled this off in the nick of time!

RoTLO 12/12.

See you for Siege of Orgrimmar smile.gif

Thursday 12th September - Siege of Orgrimmar

New tier! Woo!

Our first raid in SoO was pretty good. We had some new people, and an offspec tank, and we did great.

First up, Immerseus, who died within the first hour. Oh and 7th kill on the server!

user posted image

That was pretty awesome, and spurred us on to contend with the Fallen Protectors who from the first few pulls seemed impossible (to heal at least). But we learned, adjusted, and steadily improved leading to a kill smile.gif 8th kill on the server.

user posted image

We put in some pulls on Norushen and he looks like he won't last too long either.

RoTLO 2/14 SoO and loving it!

Posted by: Rahven Oct 4 2013, 04:04 PM
Monday 30th September - Siege of Orgrimmar

Monday was a pretty great day and saw us down Norushen after a gear boost from Flex. In fact he died on the first pull of the week.

user posted image

So we decided to head to Sha of Pride for a few pulls. Our first pull was scuppered somewhat due to dc problems. However the second (ever) pull was smooth and resulted in a kill. 2-shotted!

user posted image

So that takes us to 4/14 in SoO. Next up is Galakras so watch this space for news!

Posted by: Rahven Oct 9 2013, 08:40 AM
Monday 7th October - Siege of Orgrimmar

We set a blistering pace on this raid, with all farm content down within 45 minutes, giving us lots of time to work on progress. Galakras was up first, and everything fell into place - we killed her (him, it?) on the first try of the night (our 11th try on this boss).

user posted image

Buoyed up by this we headed to Iron Juggernaut and very nearly killed him on the first pull. In the end we 5-shot him. Here's a pic of us having a lil' cuddle with his corpse.

user posted image

With time to spare we went onto the Dark Shammies and got them down to 11% before running out of time. They'll die next week for sure!

RoTLO 6/14 biggrin.gif

Posted by: Rahven Oct 15 2013, 07:46 PM
Thursday 10th October - Siege of Orgrimmar

After the reset we blazed through the farm content so quickly that we ended up downing a progress boss on the first night. Kor'kron Dark Shaman died on our 10th ever pull.

RoTLO 7/14 and halfway.

Posted by: Rahven Oct 15 2013, 07:49 PM
Monday 14th October - Siege of Orgrimmar

Our progress night saw us start off at General Nazgrim. He's strangely a lot easier without LFR derps hitting him during defensive stance. The ol' General died on our third ever pull.

user posted image

Having downed him, we headed to Malkorok to slap him about a bit. He turned out to be about as easy as he is on flex, and we 4-shot him.

user posted image

Two pulls on Spoils saw us get close, so expect some news on that soon. For now, RoTLO are 9/14!

Posted by: Rahven Oct 21 2013, 09:33 PM
Monday 21st October - Siege of Orgrimmar

A week after our latest progress kill comes the next one - Spoils of Pandaria. Shez managed to drag through the side with the offspec DPS *whistle* and we made it on our 9th total try.

user posted image

Next up was Thok, who we have to 20%. He looks like he's going to be a great fight smile.gif

For now, RoTLO, 10/14 SoO

Posted by: Rahven Nov 14 2013, 06:30 PM
Monday 4th November - Siege of Orgrimmar

The two weeks since downing Spoils was filled with farming and Thok attempts. We downed him on 4th November after some great refinements on our 25th ever pull.

Silly dinosaur.

This saw RoTLO at 11/14 SoO.

Monday 11th November - Siege of Orgrimmar

Progress kills. They're like buses, aren't they? Except they smell better.

Back to the grind we headed over for some more pulls on Blackfuse and he fell over on try 22.

user posted image

So with some time left we headed over to Paragons of infinite-abilities. All that prep paid off...... Well actually it felt like we didn't really need it in the end, as they died on our 4th ever pull. That's right. Despite hardly wiping we still managed to get some skeletons in the killshot.

user posted image

So we suddenly found ourselves at 13/14 SoO. Time to extend the lockout? Oh yes...

Wish us luck!

Posted by: Rahven Dec 2 2013, 09:12 AM
Monday 25th November - Siege of Orgrimmar

Two weeks and 78 pulls saw a lot of refinements, some great ideas for adjustments to our tactic and some very hard work. It paid off and we downed Garrosh.

A huge thank you to those of you who worked so hard for this kill, both in terms of improving your own game and helping out with ideas and adjustments.

RoTLO SoO normal completed smile.gif
