Welcome MYTHICCians and honored participants! Today we announce our GREAT BAKEOFF… but why are we doing this, just whyyy? 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 in Novemburr and Decempresents and bake! 🍰
But first! Let’s go over some important event and reward information below.
Event Details: 11/7/2020 to 12/15/2020
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 World of Warcraft Official 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! 🍗
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 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!
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:
Kaileesi – Sally with 12 votes
Andramantis – Jack the Skeleton King with 8 votes
Bridgeett – Sword of Sargeras with 6 votes
Sally and Jack the Skeleton King from Nightmare Before Christmas took top honors followed very closely by the Sword of Sargeras! Take a peek at their pumpies below! 🕯️
All 3 winners take home some juicy rewards. Kaileesi gets the Crimson Deathcharger mount, only available to plate wearers who finish the lengthy legendary questline in Icecrown Citadel. A great mount to take with you into Shadowlands, Death Knight represent! 🏇
Andy gets the Crawling Claw pet. Perfect for those lonely nights when Clumsi is out whoring and you need some company. 🤏
Bridgeett gets my personal favorite reward, Widget the Departed! Only the cutest kitty there ever done was! Also, a great pet to protect you in Shadowlands from those pesky Blood Elves. 😽
Check out all the pumpkins uploaded to our Discord channel below. There were a lot of fan favorites and even some from outside our community. Thank you for everyone who participated and we’ll see you for the Winter guild BAKEOFF! 🎂
The last M+ BFA season is over and here are our top 10 KDS winners:
Tjuanbeam – Demon Hunter, Warrior, and Mage
Bloodbather – Mage
Pogrunnerup – Demon Hunter
Ragingundead – Death Knight
Buzzly – Demon Hunter
Lavella – Priest
Kurrs – Rogue
Slowcowmoo – Death Knight
Kaileesi – Priest
Throwadox – Hunter
Congratulations to our top 10 KDS members on reaching such high scores during the final season of BFA! Particular honors go to Tjuan for having THREE characters in the top 10! It’s no doubt that purchasable corruption combined with solid gameplay made these scores achievable. Nonetheless, it’s still very impressive and required a lot of time investment! ✨
Blushberry – Shaman
Sugarlicks – Rogue
Licky – Warrior
Desugurippu – Demon Hunter
Heccer – Demon Hunter
Zid – Hunter
Oldcake – Monk
Viben – Monk
Chankla – Monk
Pandawarrior – Warrior
While not everyone can get mentioned, we are pleased to support our entire KDS community and congratulate them on their hard work during this final season. MYTHICC is looking forward to seeing what KDS members can do in Shadowlands! What will the new meta be? Will there be a meta? What classes will shine bright in keys? Who will be our next top mode… KDS member! 📣
It’s the end of another tier and with that we have our “end of tier” review. 🥳
Ny’alother, the Derping Kitty, was a very fun raid tier. From finally spanking Wrathion for the shit he pulled in Pandaria (albeit a fake Wraywray) to gunning down the big bad tentacle daddy lord himself in a N’zothian driveby, NYA wrapped up several major lore narratives while delivering diverse class desig… fuck it, you needed to be a fire mage, gg. 🔥
NYA had glaring PvE problems mainly with the last borrowed power system of the expac- corruption. Unlike the Eternal Palace and benthic gear, corruption was not purchasable for a long time and when it was available, it was on a rotating vendor. You had to rely solely on RNGesus: first for your BiS piece to drop, then for it to corrupt – to one out of the MANY corruptions that you needed. Some classes benefitted from corruption more than others, too. As in the case for Fire Mage, it was all stat mastery corruption and for others, it may have been infinite stars or echoing void. If you got lucky early enough, your DPS numbers were light years ahead of others, especially in the case of IS and EV – both highly over tuned corruptions. After the world first race, Blizzy did reign in some corruptions but you can see below how these powers were not balanced and carried early progression fights.
Throwadox, a RF1 team officer, said that “overall I think the corruption system had more downs than ups and I would rather not have a similar system be introduced again. And if we’re talking PvP, corruption is the most un-fun and unfair power that was introduced into the game making classes and comps exceptionally strong (Hpal infinite CD’s thanks to IT, mages and locks having 100% haste and casting <1sec polymorphs/fears/chaos bolts and <2sec greater pyro and rogue/DH which 50%+ of their damage came from gushing wounds/lash of the void).”
Zalasmina said regarding corruption: “I’m sick of borrowed power, this expac was a joke, fuck this game.” 🤷 Hard words from a person with back toes but his feelings can be summarized in the picture below – we love to hate to play this game!
Some more thoughts are as follows:
“The only thing worse than corruption was tentacle porn, and they added both in 1 patch.” -B
“To me, corruption was borrowed power without reasonable limits on top of a patch full of reused assets and art. The fact that obtaining useful corruption was also entirely RNG for a while just sort of killed 8.3 for me and a few other friends.” -P
In the end, RF1 beat daddy uWucles and savored their first CE in MYTHICC. It was well-deserved and a long time coming having been so close in previous tiers this expac. Below is a collection of RF1 and WW/SS moments enjoyed throughout NYA!
Did someone say… Glory of the Dazar’alor raider? Yes, they did! Kasparian and co. knocked out another Glory achievement recently – the one inside the gold pyramid in Zul’dazar. The reward? The Dazar’alor Windreaver, of course! 🦚
I think this leaves only one achievement run left, the Eternal Palace! Unless, I totally forgot they already did it which they may have because early onset dementia is a very real thing. 🤷 Signup next week for more Fun Runs!
Fun Runs, led by Kasparian, got another Glory achievement notched on to their belts, Glory of the Uldir Raider! This particular achievement revisited the first tier of the BFA expansion, Uldir, a titan laboratory of failed experiments and contained mutagens. Much like Clumsi, most bosses in there were complete garbage. Although, I think we can all agree that our hearts go out to one especially sad pup. Fetid Devourer was just trying to be a good boi and eat all the refuse for his titan daddies. May he rest in peace. 👼
The Bloodgorged Crawg was the reward for this Glory, a suitable award with adorable chubby cheeks.
Congratulations to everyone who participated and grats on your crawggy bois! 💖 Look for Fun Runs signup sheets in Discord!
Major news coming from leadership at MYTHICC! We are proud to announce the newest mythic raiding team to our family, Prestige Worldwide! Led by Zid, Esdeath, and Chankla, PW is a cutting edge oriented mythic raiding team:
What Days Do They Raid?
Wednesdays from 7:00-11:00pm CST
Thursdays from 7:00-11:00pm CST
Is this a Hardcore Team?
Yes, PW is a cutting edge progression team. They raid for 8 hours a week and keep their Tuesdays available for players to use at their discretion. Why are Tuesdays free? They’re clear so that it doesn’t conflict with the other raid teams in the guild but also allows members some flexibility with their weekly reset. Got home late and you want to see what’s in your mythic+ box? No worries, go do that! Want to run a normal or heroic raid that day instead, go for it!
Ultimately, the goal for PW is to offer a midweek hardcore raiding experience so that your weekends are free to be with friends or family. PW raiders are expected to perform at their best and be amply prepared with this extra time.
Why Choose This Team?
MYTHICC offers 2 other raiding experiences, one with Raid Force One and the other with Sloppy Seconds. All 3 raiding teams in the guild are mythic raiding teams with CE as the final goal. But this is what sets PW apart from our other groups:
If you want a lengthier raid night, want to keep your weekends and reset day free, and want to be done early enough in the evening, then this team is for you!
Check out our raid teams page for more information!
The month long donation event is over and who were our winners?! But first, the donation drive was so successful that the guild netted over 2 million gold worth of items. This should give us nice pocket change come time of Shadowlands and the first tier push.
Who were these divine inspirations? 👼 Look no further:
Kaileesi, Gorj, and Tankindabax
There was fierce competition, especially towards the end but amazingly we have 3 people tied for 2nd place! In 3rd, we have Bloodbather who graciously donated his reward back to the guild. Thank you, Bloodbather!
Anarane won 2 mythic boss carries from any of the first 10 bosses and a free heroic raid carry on any toon of her choosing.
Our 2nd place winners won a mythic boss carry from any of the first 10 bosses and a mythic+ 15 dungeon on any of their toons!
Congratulations to our event winners and for everyone else, keep your eyes open for future donation events and announcements found in the #event-pings❗ channel and in our blog.
A gloomhound for you… and you… and for everyone! Fun Runs!, led by Kasparian, dived into the fiery infernos of Antorus 🔥 and put a leash on the goodest of batty flying bois, the Antoran Gloomhound!
A description from the mount journal reads: “Sargeras’ own hound was maybe once a felstalker, but over the years the Dark Titan reforged and reshaped his companion into something much more powerful. When, at last, he was pleased with his creation, he set about creating more of the hounds, and imbuing them with shadow flame.”
