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.



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!

Due to a consistent high standard of 10 man raiding performance Ebon Phoenix is branching out into Heroic Mode focus and beginning a project that will hopefully end in the demise of one of the most feared WotLK bosses to date! Algalon the Observer will be attempted over the coming months and for more information on this project Lunesca asks that all interested parties visit this thread to discuss.


Also coming up is a trip to Trial of the Grand Crusader which has been highly anticipated by many of our members, good luck in there to all whom are signed! Let’s have a few of those modes down before the patch.

In recent news Lunesca led Ebon Phoenix into TOTC25 for their first solo guild run. Despite only having 23 players (and only 5 healers!) the group managed to down the Northrend Beasts and Jaraxxuss before moving onto Onyxia for a quick cuddle before bed! Well done to all involved, and a special thank you to those who joined on short notice to help out – we couldn’t have done it without you!

Last but by no means least, Ebon Phoenix have become home to a large number of new members, all of whom have settled into EP like it’s been home for years. The officers would like to thank all our new recruits for really adding to the wonderful atmosphere of the guild and hope to spend many years playing by their sides!

Last Friday Ebon Phoenix cleared Trial of the Crusader once again, along with a warm up run against Onyxia. Due to the success we’ve experienced, clearing it pretty routinely each week, the 10 man Trial of the Crusader is to become Middleground raid content. This means that well gear alts are permitted to join. The first Trial of the Grand Crusader is also incoming on Sunday.

For some reason when we triggered the Lich King during the Trial of the Crusader, the corpse of one of the Twin Valkyr followed us down to Anub’Arak. Strato then took this an an opportunity to sexually abuse her dead body. We congratulate their new relationship and await the pitter-patter of tiny undead, druidic feet…

Since the christmas month is approaching, Leylarna is going to be spear-heading a Secret Santa scheme. This basically means, rather than getting everyone a small gift in in Wow, every focuses on getting one larger present, with Leylarna matching up people to ensure everyone gets one. Feel free to head to Leylarna’s thread on the forum to discuss!

And on the Saturday, the planned 25 man Ulduar had to revert to a fresh run of Ulduar 10, which served as a great opportunity to distribute some equipment. We managed to finish off Hodir before people got sleepy. During that raid, Girr managed to win a a cloth hat item with a roll of 1, well done there. And just before we reached Hodir, Lunesca could not contain her curiosity and encouraged us to clear the passageway to the south side of Hodir, where we had not cleared before. As a reward for our curiosity, we found a simple, bland and inanimate door. The following video is a tribute to that door’s sheer lack entertainment value:
