Progression made! (2/6 HoF, 1/4 ToS)
After spending a few weeks recovering from holidays and shoring up our ranks, we've been hitting the trail hard again the last few weeks, and the results show!

Last week, we downed Protectors of the Endless in Terrace of Endless Spring, and then last night we downed both Imperial Vizier Zor'lok and Blade Lord Ta'yak in Heart of Fear! Also encouraging, Mogu'shan Vaults really had a feel of being on farm, as all bosses went down very quickly on the first night of raiding.

We welcome back Kraw into the fold, Master of Arcane Wizadry, as he rejoins our raiding ranks after an extended break. And we also welcome new raiders that have joined in the last couple months - Dascius (Master of Arms), Chëlsy (Master of Affliction) and Junii (Master of Shadows). Welcome, and thank you for your awesome contribution to the raids.

Grats mates! Garalon goes down next week!

Mogu'shan Vaults - Will of the Emperor Down!
Expecting a long winded night of raiding, Will of the Emperor went down in just two attempts! We decided to take the night off afterwards and soak in the victory. Next week we may get a crack at Heart of Fear! Exciting.

Obligatory screen shot not available yet due to technical difficulties. But we'll make sure to snap a pic next week.

Well done, Eminence!
Mogu'shan Vaults - Elegon Down!
The fifth dragon to slay was indeed a dragon. And we showed him ZERO MERCY! Elegon: You're dead to us now.

After a couple hours of attempts, where seemingly everything that could go wrong WOULD go wrong (except not all at once but spread out over multiple attempts) we were finally able to settle down and get the kill.

Grats mates! The Will of the Emperor awaits...

Mogu'shan Vaults - The Spirit Kings Down!
After a few wipes (and some flying marmots) we were able to down The Spirit Kings last night. Congratulations to everyone who participated in the kill and to everyone who received loot!

Next week: Elegon. We got some quality attempts in and did better than expected. Stay tuned!

Phishing Attempts
A few days ago I got an email stating that I changed my email address on my Guild Wars 2 account. I don't actually play Guild Wars 2, so I assumed it was spam. However, I took the time to contact ArenaNets customer support to make sure they were aware of it and offered to forward them the emails I received, which is what you do when you get fake emails from WoW (

The response I got (posted below) was staggering:


Subject: Phishing Email?

I apologize for any confusion the mail you received may have caused.

We recently had a number of malicious users each change their own Guild Wars 2 accounts several thousand times which resulted in you receiving this mail. Presumably, this was done to scan through a list of email addresses stolen from other games and websites to find accounts that are currently registered to Guild Wars 2. Most likely this was done to target them for account theft.

We would suggest that you secure your email address by changing its password. Also, we advise that you take similar steps to secure any other accounts that may be associated to the email address that received this message from our account system.

If you have any other questions, please let us know.
