We’re planning an in-game fireworks display to celebrate the guild’s first birthday. Full details can be found on the forum; we hope that you’ll be able to join us :)

We’ll also be recording footage for a new guild promotional video, so watch this space!

On Saturday evening, Sacrosanct led nine players into Naxx 10 in an attempt to get the Undying achievement. Despite being one player down, the run was a complete success. Nine of our members are now known as ‘The Undying’. Well done to:

Sacrosanct the Undying (Field Commander)
Dusas the Undying
Caregiver the Undying
Sarris the Undying
Solidos the Undying
Cheleb the Undying
Starswinger the Undying
Nessage the Undying
Sarcophagus the Undying

After we had finished in Naxxramas, we decided a victory lap of Ignis the Furnance Master was in order. So we went and sat on him for the weekly. All in all, jolly good fun! Special thanks to Sacrosanct for running the show.

This update has been a long time coming, apologies for the delay.

The last two months have been a giggle and a half for Ebon Phoenix. The guild has continued to expand up to 76 player accounts with over 250 characters. With additional applications still incoming, we’ve got a lovely mix of people and personalities

The guild suffered an attack from the People’s Republic of China a few weeks ago, specifically their Gold Seller Division. Several of our members were hacked of their possessions, including officer Kiaya. Through Kiaya’s account, the gold seller emptied our guild bank of everything of value, resulting in a good ten thousand gold’s worth of equipment being stolen. After getting in touch with the GM, the content was restored. But what was not anticipated was the almost patriotic fevor among the guild members to immedietely replace the lost materials in the aftermath of the hacking. By the time the GM handing back the items, guild members had nearly replaced what was taken. Resulting in the purchase of the final guild bank tab just to hold everything. Outstanding display of devotion from everyone involved!

Raiding has continued in Icecrown. With the furthest 10 man ID reaching Putricide in the Plagueworks. Regular weekly 10 man ID’s are the norm, however the guild were able to field a 25 man Icecrown two weeks ago, which brought Lady Deathwhisper to 30%. Well done everyone in Icecrown.

Sacrosanct led a recent attempt at a Naxx 10 Undying run, which was unfortauntely twarted that Gluth with one casualty being taken. More Undying attempts will follow. And Sarris has been trying to down Yogg-Saron again for the sport of it.

Congratulations to Bround and Anysa who were able to pickup Azure drakes in Oculus only a couple of days after it’s placement into the game, from the same instance session.

Also, remember for the next time you need to run away from the police, you are not in an action film:

On 30th December Ebon Phoenix have cleared the Lower Spire of Icecrown Citadel. The raid group managed to one shot Marrowgar, Deathwhisper and the Gunship battle. And then after a change in technique managed to bring down Deathbringer Saurfang. Very well played DPS’ers especially. Each attempt on him brought us ever closer, with a wipe on about 3% when he hard enraged. But with the new technique, the kill was almost comfortable. Looking forward to wiping clean the Lower Spire again, in preparation for the next wing.

And lastly, a fond Happy Birthday to Mortiis! In celebration, here is a video of a fat kid doing his impression of a submarine for your viewing pleasure!

The guild has been nice and busy since the launch of patch 3.3. With the triumph badges thick on the ground, a lot of people have been diving into those heroics head first to help guild members get those delicious badges. Thank you very much to all those who have been keeping up the community spirit by helping out!

Leylarna’s secret santa scheme was a big success! Three cheers for Leylarna for organising the entire event and we all look forward to seeing something similiar next year.

Raiding this month has been a right old laugh. Last Saturday the guild managed to clear all the way up to Anub’arak in Trial of the Grand Crusader 25 man, successfully killing the Faction Champions and the Twin Valkyr as a guild first. Though unfortunately we were unable to bring down Anub’Arak, it was a right good show. Well done to all who attended.

Icecrown Citadel has proved to be very entertaining. The first week the guild were able to clear up to Deathbringer Saurfang, and in a fine display of ‘breaking out the spinnach took out Marrowgar despite him dealing 25 man content levels of damage. And in the second week did the same, with the best attempt being 21%, before being viciously slaughtered. During such Icecrown raids, Sacrosanct has found out he’s constantly getting the defective Jetpack during the Gunship event, not once…but TWICE falling from the Hammer during the battle. Zuuzuu has demonstrated the skills of an “Irish Minesweeper” by removing the Icecrown alarms by walking into them. And Soulscar being forcibly made a healer for all future raids…but he doesn’t know yet. So shush!

We also decided to return to Ulduar 10 recently to take a crack at some of the achievement in preparation for the Algalon project. After some steller raid leading work from Kiaya, the guild managed Orbital Devestation on the Flame Leviathan, with two towers up. Stokin’ the Furnace on Ignis. Heartbreaker on Deconstructor. And the Crazy Cat Lady on the Crazy Cat Lady. More achievements will very likely follow, for the giggles.

And lastly, the guild has just dinged 70 accounts. The flame of the Phoenix continues to burn bright!
