Down goes Assault Commander Jorb…
…and Joloral Ragetide joins his Cmdr.
This was a great accomplishment for SU as the Guurloth’s fight is all about following directions. It was a huge confidence builder for our raid team considering how new we are as a unit and how quickly we’ve accomplished these kills. Anrak fell on our first night of raiding (only the second night the guild was together). Guurloth fell after only five solid attempts.
We also put in four attempts on Thalguur, getting him to around 50% twice. This guy should be dead on Sunday!
Finally, the Scarlet Undergound is currently recruiting folks for our 20-man raid team. We are very light on mages and clerics, and could also use a few warriors. We are still full on rogues.
Who says when you start things over you have to start them off slow? On only day two after Scarlet Underground refilled its ranks, it was off to the races. We ventured into Gilded Prophecy with limited but optimistic expectations – but we never would have guessed we’d nearly one shot our first boss as a group.
Anrak the Foul, the scorpion and first boss of GP, went down without much of a fight. Attempt one we got him to 3%. I think the excitement of doing so well got to us at the end. Three tries later, the bug (yeah, I called it a BUG) was dead.
Scarlet Underground faltered on Corthana (I mean, honestly, who could have known it would be a Trial server?) but it has moved on to live again.
Now on Laethys, Scarlet Underground will become a late night raiding guild focused on progression without running members into the ground with a heavy raiding schedule.
More details will be forthcoming.
The guild has been hard at work grinding levels and skilling up our crafters. We have several people in that upper echelon of the level grind, formerly known as the fourties, and we have finally welcomed our first and second level 50′s!
Congrats to Kahzdyn – our first fifty! Following closely on his heels was Iroh, who finished off his grind just two days later. Congrats Iroh!
Scarlet Underground has also knocked out its third normal dungeon, putting the Foul Cascade to shame in an utter display of win.
Lastly, we have our first crafter in the 300 club. Aalwein (with a ton of help from Kahzdyn) is now a 300 club member in Outfitting.
We went into the Darkening Depths with barely a torch to light the way; unsure of what we would encounter and a list of quests to complete. About an hour later, the council of goblins lie at our feet and the Darkening Depths was vanquished.
This dungeon was much longer and drawn out than the Realm of the Fae, but if you are simply doing a boss run, you’ll only have to do the lower portion. That cuts off about 15 minutes of time or so. The bosses in DD are much more strategy oriented however. Watch out for pools of bad (fire or whatnot) and setup a kill order before you jump into the bosses… oh, and listen to the NPCs when they tell you to “Get him out of the moonlight!”
