Once again, the guild responded to the challenge of a difficult and grueling tier the way it always has: by rising up and excelling where others falter. Kil'jaeden has finally been defeated after nearly 350 pulls. What is remarkable this time is despite strictly adhering to our standard schedule and formula, we finished the tier at US 29th and World 99th. Congratulations to the raid team for its focus and commitment, with special recognition to the leadership of Frozen; raid leading is a thankless and tireless job and his guidance, navigation of the shifting meta (and roster!) and unflappable approach brought us home in record fashion. A big assist also goes to Nether, who was all over streams and played a big hand in our strats and workable comps.
Onward to Antorus and the conclusion of Legion!
Congratulations to our raiders for capping off Nighthold with a very satisfying, US 44th kill of Gul'dan. Perserverance was a theme this tier and kudos to the team for putting a rough start to the week behind them and bringing this one home. Speaking of perserverance, this also marks the 20th consecutive progression raid in Temerity's history, a milestone that makes me particularly proud (I'm counting Ruby Sanctum, get fucked). Thank you to our Officers and raiders for continuing to make the guild a special place to raid. And thanks to Senya for capturing the spirit of the moment as usual.
Touchy touchy. After violating us mercilessly with her tentacles, Temerity has finally put down Helya in classic guild fashion - on the final pull of the night. This was a very challenging fight, both due the encounter itself as well as the timing of ToV in general in conjunction with the current raid meta game. A *HUGE* congratulations to the team. You all kept the momentum up over the Christmas and New Year's stretch, improving each night and culminating in a US49th kill. As usual, I'm immensely proud of the guild and the perserverence its raiders continue to show. On to The Nighthold!
Temerity capped an incredible launch to the expansion with an impressive US 44th kill of Xavius. Legion was eagerly anticipated and it has certainly delivered from a content perspective. With tons to do and multiple avenues for character progression, our raiders committed the time, energy and skill to kick things off in style. I want to thank and salute the team for their dedication both in and out of raid. With all that content came challenges (and some frustration) given our schedule and principles, but we met them head on and are in great shape heading into Trial of Valor and, more importantly, The Nighthold. Great work!
