Just a quick update to advise of our raiding plans for the week. We'll plan to utilize Wednesday as our heroic clear day. Let's have everyone ready to go in at 5:30p server with the intent of clearing as much as possible. This will be the only day this week we'll plan on spending time in heroics as a team. The rest of the week will be going after kill #2 on Kargath, taking down the Twins and beginning progression on Brackenspore. Make sure you come with good food, good spirits, and good numbers!
Great first two nights to our raid week. Cleared farm content in Normal and Heroic very quickly and managed to kill two progression bosses: Normal Imperator Mar'gok and Heroic Kor'agh. Great job by all involved! The gear gods have been very kind to us as I'm happy to report we still have yet to shard a drop during this tier. As a team we're over 656 ilvl which is fantastic.

This Sunday will definitely involve our first look at Mythic and possibly some attempts at Heroic Imperator.
Happy Holidays to everyone and good luck on Sunday! I'll be back from vacation to raid on the 28th! We'll discuss the return of Groupme once our regular raid schedule resumes!
Good efforts to take down Kor'agh. Felt like we spent the first hour getting our bearings, the second hour learning how to stop taking avoidable damage and the third hour we saw some actual progress. Had a 6% wipe that was bordering on a kill. A couple of later attempts in the night that were super clean until a mishap or two took us out. 100% confidence we'll see this guy dead early into the next raid week!
Next week is our last full week of raiding until Jan 6th lockout. Let's all plan to get in early and get ready to wipe the floor with Normal and clear through as much of the already cleared heroic content as possible on Wednesday. Until then, here's a few a links to keep you busy:
Headed to Highmaul again tonight. Planning to do 6/7 NM tonight and spend remainder of the week working on HMs. Given the lukewarm reception to the RNG of Personal Loot, we'll be delving back into Lootmaster mode this week. Remember our strategies are posted in the forums (members only). To the right are links to the wowhead guides to Highmaul and the Fatboss video guides.
Thought of the week for gearing: If you haven't been capping Conquest weekly, start doing it. Investing an hour or so in 2v2 arenas at a 40% win rate (fairly easy to do even if you just tank your MMR up front by AFKing a few) will net you a nice 660 necklace in one week. Bankrolling CP to the next week will pretty much have you in any armor piece you want. 3-4 weeks of capping will have you in a 660 weapon. In addition to your Arena CP Cap, you can also earn an extra 200 CP weekly by participating in Ashran. Killing Cronus (Alliance side) will earn you 25CP and defeating High Lord Volwhatever is worth around 250 or enough to get your cap. You can also join into Group Finder raids that are killing the mini PVE bosses inside Ashran for easy 25CP and free PVP gear (not conquest) daily. So even if Arenas aren't your thing, you can still manage to hit conquest cap weekly via Ashran.
