SL Donation Drive #4 Winners are…

We made it to the end of Shadowlands! What will forever be remembered as a contentious expansion where a loooooot of stuff happened. At least we can see the light at the end of the tunnel with the 10.0 expansion reveal, Dragonflight, and all that is to come. But before any of that happens, our gracious General Animal helped the guild again to wrap up our Shadowlands fundraising events.

Our winners are📣:

  1. Flyrant with 5,212,211
  2. Kaileesi with 2,711,970
  3. Troika with 2,130,522

The top three were given the fancy new, 🎁Donation Winners role in Discord so they shine brighter (and higher on the role rankings) then everyone else, oo lala! 💃

After tallies, donations totaled just under $1600 USD!!! Thank you! I promise I won’t use this gold to race change… heavy breathing. We’ll be using these resources to fund sponsored legendaries, gold awards for KDSI events, and more (those were the ones I could think of off the top of my head).

🏆Donation Prizes🏆

This time around, GM Taru, commissioned the artist and owner of OddifyIndy to create an original work—an acrylic drip-pour canvas art using the colors of the Horde, as the first-place prize. The horde crest symbolizes many things: unity of unlikely allies, perseverance through hardship, freedom from oppression, reinvention of identity, and resourcefulness. This piece draws inspiration from the building blocks of the horde, the wood and earth. The work conveys physical aspects of trees—the grit of the lines is noticeably visible while inviting in the industrious colors associated with Horde metallurgy. The work also evokes the colors of the zone Durotar, similarly to the red earth tones of the iron rich soil of the southern United States.

Other original pieces by the artist in the same style are “Miss Swamp Thang” using colors emulating the dark swirling currents of the Bayou; and “Trixie’s Mattel” that uses bold and conflicting colors that illustrate the infamous drag queen’s legendary looks. All the works take on the quality of otherworldliness that are reminiscent of planetary gas giants with their swirling and unique colorizations.

A major shout out to OddifyIndy for her work! 💖

1st Place – Exclusive artwork by OddifyIndy: a unique acrylic drip pour commissioned by MYTHICC for the Shadowlands Season 3 Donation Drive.

2nd Place – Choice of: $30 gifted Bnet balance, a surprise gift from an officer (a $30 value), two M+ carries untimed, a Horde themed drip pour canvas mini, or the adventuring package.

3rd place – Choice of: $20 gifted Bnet balance, a surprise gift from an officer (a $20 value), one M+ carry untimed, a Horde themed drip pour canvas mini, or the adventuring package.

What is the Adventuring Package? 20 flasks, 40 augment runes, and 100 ZM health pots.

This was a tremendous turn out! Thank you everyone who donated! MYTHICC appreciates every one of you🙏.

Soultendies Boremazain

Last week, DOR put an end to Garrosh Hellscream’s torment and defeated Soultendies Boremazain! 🐔

They set their sights to get 5/10M, mid-tier progression, and achieved it! A glorious finish to an UNGODLY long tier. With 9.2 around the corner, players are eager to get their hands on fresh content. Here’s to a sense of hope that’s missing for a long time and good luck DOR! 🥂

The MYTHICC Bake-Off Goodies!

Welcome readers and bake-off participants! MYTHICC hosted our second annual baking event, and while there weren’t as many entries this time around, the baked good were still gorgeous nonetheless. Let’s do a recap of what all was done:

  • Participants baked anything… yes, anything… but preferably baked goods

It was that easy! Without further ado, here are the highlights:

Nailed It!

Inspired by the show Nailed It! on Netflix, we gave our more adventurous bakers a self-serving challenge; could they replicate a difficult cake? The winner also won a copy of the new “World of Warcraft: New Flavors of Azeroth: The Official Cookbook!” They had to pick from one of the following cake options: an angel, a penguin, and a Christmas tree!

Our winner for the Nailed It! category was… 🥁

Anarane, again, with her spin on the holiday penguin! She’ll take home the new WoW CB, congratulations Ana!


The 2nd GREAT MYTHICC BAKEOFF!

Welcome MYTHICCians and honored participants! Today we announce (again) our 2nd GREAT BAKEOFF? Because it’s the Holiday season, everything sucks right now-ish, and we need a reason to live during these trying times… so let’s do what we do best Decempresents and bake! 🍰

But first! Let’s go over some important event and reward information below.

Event Details: 12/1/2021 to 1/05/2022

  • Bake anything!
  • Judges will pick 3 of the best baked goods based on the following: Creativity, Presentation, and Uniqueness. We chose ‘uniqueness’ as a category because if there are 20 cookies posted, consider what you want us to see that makes your cookie stand out from the rest!
  • There is a complementary competition subsection called NAILED IT! See this section further down.
  • You may post as many submissions as you want for both the regular category and NAILED IT!, but all submissions must be posted in the #great-bakeoff🧁 channel and must be a baked good!

Overview of Prizes

Three winners will take home the perfect prize for the Holiday season, especially for the nerdy WoW player that cooks, the new flavors of Azeroth, the 2nd official World of Warcraft Cookbook by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel! Monroe-Cassel has done a number of other famous franchise cookbooks like Game of Thrones, Elder Scrolls, Overwatch, and Hearthstone Innkeeper’s Tavern. Check out her books online! 🍗

NAILED IT!

In addition to the BAKEOFF, we thought it would be a great time to add a subcategory to it. Inspired by the show “Nailed It!” on Netflix, we are giving our more adventurous bakers a self-serving challenge; can you replicate one of these 3 cakes below? The winner will also win a copy of the 2nd World of Warcraft Official Cookbook! Pick one of the following cake options:

  • An angel 👼
  • A penguin 🐧
  • A Christmas tree 🎄

Please use these images as your cake lookalikes and post them in the #great-bakeoff🧁 channel and tag it with @NAILED IT so mods can follow!


Ner’fool…io?

I know, I know… this article is hella late but I’m a doctor now so ya’ll better get used to illegible writing and waiting—as they do when you are waiting to be seen. 🙌

DOR took down the depressed floating armor cage and original Lich King, Ner’zhul, some time ago opting for the double MD strat. As you can see, the cat mount on the bottom right takes the cake in the photo. Only cultured people ride cats…? “Mehow, les bitches.” 🏮🐈🏮

Congratulations to DOR on their casual foray through mythic, now 4/10M, they have their eyes set on 5/10M. Will the Garrosh’s nipple tickler go down? Stay tuned!

Spooktober is over! Judges narrowed down all these awesome pumpkins to just three finalists. Pumpkin carvings were judged based on creativity, effort, and complexity but in the end the guild decided the order of our winners! 🎃 Our winners are:

  2. ShamnCheese – “Diablo” kitty with 7 votes

Check out all the pumpkins uploaded to our Discord channel below. Thank you for everyone who participated and we’ll see you for the Winter guild BAKEOFF! 🎂


SL Downs The Bansheequen

SL knocked it out of the park and got AotC last Sunday, 10/3! This officially ends their first tier as a raid team. Asking Googlimoogli what he thought of the fight, he said “I was too drunk to remember!” A great RL everyone… 👏👏👏 They also forgot to give me a ‘kill’ picture probably because the fight is so long and also so annoying… that they forgot! SHAME! 👻 Also… no log… I hate you all.

What’s Next?

9.1.5!

Who Sucked The Most Dookie Poopoo?

Lion clearly took first place here, followed closely by our fan favorites Kalanee and Jarkatel. They’re excused, however, as Lion is a Canandiyan and therefore is not human so he is unworthy of any respect. 🍁

Stay tuned for more ‘firsts’ with SL and if you’re interested in raiding heroic casually but wanting to get shit done, apply!


KDSI Season 3 Ends

MYTHICC’s third keystone dungeon invitational officially ended last Thursday! 🧨 The 6-week long event tracked participants through dungeons while keeping a scorecard of their end-of-dungeon timers. Players were awarded bonus points scaling by key level. With that all being said… we have our winners.

The Winners

  1. Pandathrall with 9,932 points
  2. Lightshift with 9,017 points
  3. Thulldar with 8,168 points

Winners took home some sweet rewards! 💰 Keep your eyes out for the next event and thank you to everyone who came and participated!!!


DOR and the Nine

DOR danced the fragment cell block tango and lived! 6 healing really is the easiest strategy here – having the extra healing CDs and dispels (and two priests) makes the fight almost trivial and definitely easier than Eye.

Although, I am a bit sad to see the Nine go – they’ve been with us since Cataclysm! They added an important narrative arc for Sylvanas’s character. Especially after she threw herself off of Icecrown Citadel, was revived, and then serviced to the Jailer since Arthas’s death. I do hope to see them come back but maybe this is an opportunity to make way for some new characters, WoW is in severe need of that! 👼👼👼👼👼👼👼👼👼

Also… #freeHelya.
