Plenty of things have happened to us since the last update. This blog will try to remain up to date from now on.

We’ve seen a lot of new interesting people join our ranks who have certainly been adding to the flavor! Of note have been Solidos, Wyenama, Catahecassa, Taurau and Myr and it’s been great to have new faces in the mix. A huge welcome from all of Ebon Phoenix!

Recently, Jaerielle hosted a heroic race between two five man teams, to see who can clear through three selected heroics the fastest. With both teams neck and neck right up until the final heroic, an unlucky wipe on one of the teams allowed one team to run off with the lead! But both sides had great fun and we hope to field similiar random competitions in the future.

Raid wise things are looking really up for EP. With the exception of the week Anu’barak was added (simply due to a busy raiding week) each Trial of the Crusader boss has been destroyed on first encounter on the week it’s been added, with Lord Jaraxxus and the Twin Valkyr on the very first attempt. Huge congratulations to Strato for wandering off with Illumination, a staff large enough to paddle a canoe with.

Rather comically, Yogg-Saron in Ulduar remains unkilled, simply due to no raids being fielded against him. With the tier 8.5 gear available from badges, mustering the enthusiam to finish off Ulduar with only the General and Yog remaining has been no easy task. Instead it’s been more benefiticial to go against the Trial of the Crusader for the progression towards tier 9. But it remains a loose end worth tieing up when we can get round to it.

Far more interesting, has been the growing good relations between Ebon Phoenix and another PvE guild on the server, Venatus Una. VU have been looking to flex their raiding muscles and move into the end game and frequently have a surplus of tanks. Ebon Phoenix, frequently suffering from a shortage of tanks, have been working together with Venatus Una in the 25 man content, specifically Naxxramas. The experiment so far has been a tremendous success! The first tandem Naxxramas 25 man ID saw all of Naxx completely cleared, with Kel’Thuzad one shotted, despite a wobbly turn at 40% health. Hats off to everyone there for keeping a cool head in a scene of such extreme chaos! A very valiant display from both EP and VU! Long may such cooperation continue!

Take it away Bunny Orc dancing!
