If you've had a chance to check out the in-game calendar or the calendar here, you might have noticed the schedule for December is up. The big news is the "Ten Days of Spectacular Death" events. From December 6th through December 15th, we have an event each day. The events correspond to what expansion was active during each year of our existance. We started during the end of Burning Crusades so our first event will be a completely naked Sunwell. There are pets and tmog gear to obtain. No weapons or jewelry or armor will be allowed on this run so bring a toon with lots of bag space for your gear.
We will be doing a Wrath mount run. There are 5 bosses who have mounts: Sartharion, Malygos, Yogg-Saron, Arthas, and Vault of Archavon. Any of the bosses in Vault can drop the mammoth. We won't be clearing Ulduar or Icecrown. We will have cleared up to the bosses so we can just run in, kill the final boss, and hope a mount drops. Sartharion is a guaranteed drop so if you don't have the Black Drake, be sure you mark this event on your calendar.
Our next event will be Cataclysm raids. We will blast through Throne of the Four Winds, to see if that mount drops; before heading to Bastion of Twilight and Blackwing Descent. We'll be doing BWD on heroic so we can get the world's best temporary title. There are pets to be obtained.
On Saturday, December 9th, our first group of people will attack Algalon for Herald of the Titans.
It is absolutely imperative you have listed your toon in the thread AND you're gemmed and enchanted. Tarsan has a great listing for gems, food, flasks and enchants. For the flasks, we need the following ingredients:
Volatile Life (lots)
For gems, we need the raw versions of:
We also need eel, sagefish and crocolisk to make foodstuffs. Please put all these materials on the gear tab where jewelcrafters and alchemists can access them and make the appropriate flasks and gems. If you don't know what gem you need, look at the post or just ask. Take a look at what enchants are in the bank. You can use pretty much anything. If you'd like something and don't see it on the enchanting tab, just ask. We have plenty of mats to make enchants. Shoulder enchants come from Sons of Hodir and are BoA so if one of your toons is exalted with Hodir, you can have that toon buy the enchant and mail it to your Legacy toon. Leg enchants are leg armor and spellthreads. We also need some Flintlocke's Woodchucker for hunters.
Please understand if we have more people who are available to run and we don't have room for everyone. We will be doing this again in January to make sure those who want the title can get it.
We're down to the prep work to get gear for those running. If you can make ilevel 226 armor, please add that to the gear tab. This will help people who can't get into Ulduar or other raids for gear. We'll do the best we can to get you into raids, but crafted gear is still very good.
That's Herald. Moving on, we will be doing Pet Battles with a twist. We'll be meeting outside Kharanos to do battle. You don't need to bring your team. It will be furnished for you. Please sign up so I know how many pet teams to furnish. We will have all sorts of pets to use.
We will be doing Throne of Thunder and Hellfire Citadel achievements. Throne's achievements are terribly annoying to do but we're going to give it a shot. Many of us need just one achievement from Hellfire for the meta; stupid Mannoroth; so he is sooooo dead.
There will be a guild dueling event on December 12th. We have crafted mounts to give away; a motorcycle, a panther or two, a sky golem. We have rare pets to give away, a stove, a bomb, or two, or pets which drop in raids. Everyone who comes to duel will receive a bag. So many wonderful things for all the guild members who come to duel each other.
Our final anniversary event will be a run of Antorus. Our actually anniversary is Friday, December 15th. So this is a good way to end our 10 days, remembering where we've come from.
Our annual Christmas party is Sunday, December 18th. It's held in Ironforge, in the Explorer's Hall, under the great tree. You MUST bring a wrapped gift. It can be anything which can be wrapped, from gray to legendary. Stacking items can't be wrapped, so a stack of potions won't be possible. The party starts at 8:30. This is a HALF HOUR EARLY.
Other things of note during December, we're going after heroic Helya on Friday. We have to get her down before we move on to other content. If we do not get her down, we'll be after her again on the 21st. Please come, as we need more than 12 people to get through Helya's attacks.
We'll end the month with a by-request Heroes of the Storm event. Meet in Discord at 8:45 so we can group up and run Heroes. You'll need to have Heroes installed. You'll also need to be friends with someone who is running Heroes so we can invite you to groups. We play against the AI, and just have a lot of fun. We will have our Tmog contest on the 29th and end the month with a Miz Special on the 30th.
There's a lot going on. Please sign up. This is a very big month for us. Not many guilds make it this long. We are allowed to whoop it up and celebrate.
