Guild Update and 9.1

Hello everybody! It’s been awhile since we’ve done a guild update and seasonal review because… honestly, it’s probably for the best! This tier has been a DOOZY FLOOZY MAMACITA WOOZY. ๐Ÿ˜ฟIt’s been 225 DAYS since the expansion launched and 210 of those days were in CN.

INSANE ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

The guild has seen better days but I remain optimistic. We lost 3 mythic raiding teams, but we grew the community to include more of our diverse interests. Our key pushing groups and KDSI events have been a great success, we launched 2 new H raid teams, DOR and SL, and have plans to incorporate RBGs into our weekly mix. โš”๏ธ

Sanctum of Domination and 9.1

The raid is looking amazing, especially with some troll af bosses where you can ping pong your friends off of platforms, check out this video below by Kelani! ๐Ÿ“

Of the 10 bosses, we’re treated to some major lore reveals! I’m not spoiling anything here, but should expect information on the Eye of the Jailor, Sylvannas’s ultimate motives and her Valkyrie, and more.

Tarugala is hosting a N full clear the day the raid releases! It’s been our prerogative since Legion to smash a new raid on release day all the way throughโ€ฆ until Andy can’t walk anymore (a typical weekday). We’ll start forming as soon as the servers come up so expect some major downtime until then! Make sure to plan your food and drinks, work, e.t.c. so we can stop Sylvannas together! Hit the sign up button to be taken to the roster!

9.0-9.05 Photo Gallery

Here’s some photos I’ve saved throughout the tier in no particular order!


Council What? MM ed.

MM knocked the socks off ๐Ÿงฆ these dancing sociopaths last Tuesday. After a staggering 169 pulls… yes… Midnight members were more than happy to see the frolicking blood drinkers kick the bucket. Now firmly, 7/10M, MM joins roughly 4 thousand other guilds worldwide on Mudfister, a typical Wednesday night for Clumsy. Oh, excuse me, I meant Sludgefist. I must’ve read that wrong. ๐Ÿ”

Shimmy… *PTSD triggered* Enjoy the video below!

What’s Wrong With Castle Nathria?

Sire Daddy’s castle is an unusually hard tier for a first raid tier of an expansion. Coupled with this patch being exponentially longer (content drought), we’re still seeing very few guilds make progress. Why is that? When we look at the other first raid tiers from BFA and Legion, the numbers suggest varying degrees of success:

For one, CN has 10 booses, where both Uldir and EN have 8. EN saw the most amount of guilds achieve CE, where many got stuck at Fetid Devourer in Uldir. In CN, Council of Blood is the first big wall for guilds pushing for CE and after that, it only gets harder. If we compare CN to Tomb of Sargeras, though:

ToS and CN have similar difficulty towards the later bosses. ToS nicknamed “Tomb of Soakgeras” was difficult in a different way, in that for every boss you needed a minimum of 3-6 immunity soaks. M KJ is also regarded as one of the hardest M bosses in WoW’s history with entire guilds swapping to Horde so their healers could go Goblin for the rocket jump. ๐Ÿš€

The Problem

CN has its problems but it’s not the worst first tier of the most recent expansions. If we look back to BFA, guilds struggled to have any success in Uldir, especially beyond M.O.T.H.E.R.. And it didn’t help that there were 3 walls, ouch. ๐Ÿ‘Š

CN has done a great job with the first half of the raid, but there are still issues. We’re seeing similar progression to other later tiers and bosses with significantly more time available… the problem here is time and tuning. โฐ

  • M EN opened September 27th (ToV opened November 8th) and ended January 17th = 112 days
  • M Tomb opened June 28th and ended November 28th = 154 days
  • M Uldir opened September 11th and ended January 22th = 133 days
  • M CN opened December 15th and it’s May 1st… = 137 days and counting (expected 200+)

CN is much more like Tomb of Sargeras, than we realize and as we add more days to the tier, it’s becoming more apparent. If CN were like EN, we’d expect to see 10 times the amount of guilds kill Sire and if were like G’huun, double. CN is almost like a later raid tier in difficulty.

I’d argue that raid tuning is not being done right, and hasn’t been done right for multiple tiers. I’d hope for another round of nerfs to the last four bosses if Blizzard wants to create a true guild curve, but I think I’m being too hopeful. Usually a new patch comes with a lot of renewed optimism, and with 9.1 being right around the corner (finally), I hope we can take that enthusiasm with us into Torghast and leave 9.0 behind.

KDSI Season One Ends

MYTHICC’s first keystone dungeon invitational officially ended last Thursday! ๐Ÿงจ The 9-week long event tracked participants dungeon timers and how much time was left tallied together. Time bonuses were awarded every week to participants as additional incentive to come. With that all being said… we have our winners.

The Winners

  1. Andramantis at 5:42:30
  2. Aleiya at 5:08:56
  3. Jujubae at 5:06:46

Each winner took home a major gold pot! ๐Ÿ’ฐ First place took home 700k, second place at 400k, and third place at 200k. For future events, we are shortening the KDSI season so it won’t be so long and reviewing prizes. Did someone say game time??? ๐Ÿคฉ Keep your eyes out for the next event and thank you to everyone who came and participated!!!


Byeee’mox, MM ed.

Midnight to Minutes did it again! Living up to their name in every way, MM struck down the greedy thief during the last pull of the night! Somehow our seed handlers didn’t chi portedo, blink, disengage, or soul shape into traps. ๐Ÿ˜ฟThis was definitely a feat of strength for some, especially Mayunie. His fat panda definitely did that several times… as well as the game literally inting on some pulls – he’d stand on top of the seeds with no cursor indicator anywhere to pick them up, thanks Clumsi! ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ I’m sure there were other instances of seed mishaps but I could only remember my own because CHI PORTEDOing into improperly executed mechanics is so extra and I am that extra. ๐Ÿคšโœจ

The best part was that Xy’daddy went down in what felt like only one raid night??? We spent a half a day on him on Tuesday and then a full raid night on him the following Sunday. So let’s say it was one raid day’s worth of time, kek. ๐Ÿ™ˆ The video is below, courtesy of Izzacangel! No Beethoven this time. Congratulations, MM!

More images to come! I have to find the person with our group photo!


Lady I’annoya Derpvein, MM ed.

Defeated by the forces of love ๐Ÿ’–, rainbows ๐ŸŒˆ, and kitty toe beans ๐Ÿพ, MM prevailed against that nasty Lady D and her anima canisters (still the best guild name never used). With her out of the way, Daddynathrius’s plans were halted – preventing more anima from bleeding out into the Maw and into Andy’s mouth.

Some of the fun encounter highlights for me was that amount of people zipping in and out doing their “lines”… something Clumsi is a pro at. ๐Ÿ‘ƒ

Watch out kill video below in a true dramatic Beethoven fashion, courtesy of Izzacangel:


The DORs Get AoTC, DOR ed.

Claiming their first AoTC in MYTHICC, the DORs did NOT get on their knees for Daddynathrius… but I’m not sure why not, prudes. With help from members of RF1 and MM, Sire proved he was all talk and no game and eventually fled in to Remornia, our new Shadowlands waifu knifu. ๐Ÿ—ก๏ธ One day we’ll get the RP that supposed to play at the end of the raid, I’ve only ever seen it once out a lot of kills and I don’t remember how he dissolves into Remrem… I guess we’ll never know.

This was a long time coming for them, having recently moved from a 1-day schedule to a 2-day with the expectation to go into mythic soon. For now however, DOR is still recruiting for regular roster members. Reach out to Wellfleet for more info! Congratulations DOR! ๐Ÿšช


Saving Private Kael’thas, MM ed.

Kael’thas Sundaddy was saved by Minutes to Madness… Men… Midnight on Sunday! Opting for the single tank strat (DHs are broken), they heal zerged with 2 restoration shamans, 2 holy priests, 1 restoration druid, and 1 holy paladin. ๐Ÿ’š

The healers and PI bots pumped their love juice into KD (Kael’daddy), until he was uWu refreeeshed. But the highlight of our most recent reclear was something none of us expected – the return of Izzacangel’s ‘sOaK’ vocal cry. For those that don’t know, Izzac suffers from Chokesondixia, where the throat randomly goes crazy and words filter through as though he is choking. Before his diagnosis, we all first noticed it during NYA progression, notably on Hivemind. Thankfully, he’s worked through it and is an advocate for Chokesondixia awareness. ๐Ÿ†

Below is MM’s first KD takeup??? Technically, we don’t takedown since we just heal him and slap him around a bit so it’s whatever. โœ‹ Enjoy!


Dance Dance Revolution, RF1 ed.

Sashay Left, Shimmy Right! Raid Force 1 proved they were the dance masters of Castle Nathria, quickly sidestepping the Council of Blood in mythic! They even took home all the loots… except for Tjuan who got that trinket, you know… the Macabre Sheet Music. ๐Ÿธ We all feel for you, we truly do. Those stingy council members did you dirty.

RF1 plows ahead to Sludgefist, the BDSM pillar smasher, uuuWuuu. Quite different from heroic difficulty, they’ll have to manage the new soak mechanic while not yeeting whoever their tethered to… I mean, if I saw a Blood Elf chained to me, I could do unforgivable things to them, and I’d be OK with it. Good luck RF1 and congratulations to a well earned progression boss!
