We finished up Tier 17 1/7M in Highmaul and 5/10Mythic in Blackrock Foundry.
With a bone yet to be picked still in Highmaul, we overall surprised ourselves with the amount of work that was put in team building and leading in the last few months. We set our goal at a Flamebender kill and suceeded. Our roster has never had so much depth and camaderie as it has at the moment.
Lots of success was had, but also an important loss to our team that we haven't mentioned here did happened. While sad in the current situation for us as a whole, we know that the word "stranger" need never apply, and look forward to seeing our old leader in the game as time allows.
So, as the weeks continue and he gets settled in Dubai, we all continue to wish Glaive the greatest of luck on this new adventure in his life. The lot of us wouldn't be here together right now if he hadn't kept all of us together in the beginning - and personally, the last two years raiding together has been nothing but an honor.
Tier 17 shoutouts also go out to Spencer, keeping us focused, and even though we give him a bit of a rough time by ... forgetting how to Warcraft at times, his steadfast face in adversity, mechanics, and putting up with our BS at times is greatly appreciated. We just hope the grey hairs aren't coming too quickly.
Recruiting - Karn and Mazer have taken the lead and are the reason why we are the current team we are now at the moment. Bringing in recruits from all over, getting the message out, and taking the time to personally get to know everyone and (somehow) keep it all straight has made my head spin. So ... thanks guys.
All other members who read this, you all rock. As the official cheerleader, I couldn't be more proud and happy to have such a group of individuals to cheer for and with. So ... all the hearts.
That leaves us to Hellfire Citadel.
First week we are hitting straight with Heroics. Why not?
As a former associate of someone with Spencer's voice once said ...
We have the tools.
We have the talent.
It's boss killing time.
