Wait...when did it get to be June? I am so not ready for summer. Half of a year has evaporated.
Anyway, there are some things already on the June calendar. The officers are going to meet Monday, June 4 to finish filling in the schedule. As always, if there is something you'd like to run, or need to have run, please let me or Tarsan or Mizauki know.
Also, please take a look at your achievements. If you are into collecting achievements or mounts (There is an achievement coming in BfA for collecting 400 mounts. /sigh Oondasta! Just drop it already!), "Glory of the [insert expac] Hero" are reasonably easy for us to help you get. Dungeon achievements can be obtained during Timewalking events, too, and some of them need a group of people to accomplish. (Looking at you "Share the Love" from GunDrak.) There is a poll to the left where you can indicate interest in getting achievements from the various 5-mans. If you still need Legion dungeon achievements, let us know. Roar is not available, due to something called a wed-ding, until the middle of the month, but enough of us have done these to be able to shepherd people through them.
The thinking is the pre-BfA events will start in July. Man, we are 2 months from Battle arriving. There's a poll for that, too. Click on the "next poll" at the lower right of the current poll. This means the Mage Tower artifact achievement will be going away. You have a month, probably.
Balance of Power; that unforgivingly long quest chain. We have Emerald Nightmare and Nighthold events for both June and July scheduled. We have been asked to add more Antorus raids to the schedule. Thankfully, mythic +15 achievement is not going away and it's been requested we add 2 nights, back-to-back, to the schedule so we can try for this.
I am loathe to add too much to the schedule. I could pack something every single day. Seriously, there's enough content, both old and new, that people have indicated they want, that we could be doing some organized event every day of the month. How fast do you burn out? Frankly, I don't want to know. We already have attrition in the ranks because people are taking breaks. Add vacations and the general flow of life, and it's insane to think of having something every day. So, some things aren't going to get done. We plan off days into every week so you have the chance to do your own thing.
HOWEVER, there are things on the schedule you need to know about. June 1 and 2 are Balance of Power days. The monthly transmog event is June 29th. Two very important events, pushed back from other months, will occur in June.
Friday, June 15th, Deathtacular is running Hellfire Citadel. Friday is not a usual horde day so I'm drawing your attention to it now. We have people who have requested a Friday night horde raid. We also don't have the achievement for Hellfire so we need to get that. We need a bunch of people for the achievement. You must be level 100 to go.
Saturday, June 16th, Legacy Onyxia.
That's right. The Legacy group is going after the purple mosquito. You can only participate if you have a toon whose XP is frozen at 80. We will try to get people geared, but, frankly, there's not been much interest in the runs of Trial of the Champions. Ulduar gear is okay, but you should be taking advantage of the ToC runs. The gear is so much better. There is time to level a toon. I'm going to say this up front. I don't care what you level. We have all classes covered. Level something you like. Please don't ask me. I'm tired of repeating this. You should know by now. I will say that if you are leveling a straight tank, we have tanks. Make sure you can dps if you are not chosen to tank. This requires 2 tanks and 3+ healers depending upon group size. With the number of people indicating interest, we will have to run this on 25-man.
So, mark your calendar for Saturday, June 16th. We'll meet outside her lair at 8:45. We will need gems, enchants, flasks, and food. I list will be posted next week. Eventually, the Legacy group will head into Icecrown Citadel, to see that close to how it was released, but that's not until, probably October or November. And if you are not playing your Legacy toons outside of when we do content, we have a storage guild specifically for toons like this. Ask me to add your little-played toons to that guild.
This is a heads-up. More information and a new schedule will be added the first week of June. Battle for Azeroth is on the horizon. We just need to muck about and finish up some things to be ready.
