re: Rantings of the Guild Stalker, Week 342

Welcome to the 342nd edition of the Rantings of the Guild Stalker, your one stop spot to get all the juiciest tidbits. But if you hear it here, you probably didn't hear it first, unless you did--in which case I call Shaman Iguana!

Welcome to this week's newsletter! First and foremost CONGRATULATIONS to those who have earned flying! Second, please come pick up those behind and fly us around it looks so fun and freeing! In all honesty though--I didn't think it was that bad of a grind to get up there, so if you don't have it yet you'll get there. If anyone needs any help feel free to holler there are plenty of guildies who are around and willing to help.

We are now two weeks into patch 8.2 and I am enjoying it so far, but man I feel busy--some of that is because of the unconfirmed raid access issues, but to me at least there has been a lot to do in 8.2. Plus, today begins Season 3--so even more fun to be had. If you want a brief recap of the Season 3 changes and interesting bits, you can check out wowhead's season 3 survival guide. At the very least we get to look forward to new Mythic+ affixes and the new Megadungeon: Operation Mechagon! 

Additionally, I have been meaning to talk about Heroic Warfronts for several weeks but it keeps slipping my mind. Heroic Warfronts are new with 8.2 and basically allow a premade group to queue for the warfronts--that will be more challenging than the usual queue. So, if anyone is interested read up on what these are and let me know if it is a thing we should maybe try an schedule for some fun. 

Additionally, please be sure you have read and understood my post from a week or so ago regarding the changes to guild rosters and some upcoming mails from Rho. Go here to read the original post. Thanks!

Also, it is with great sadness that I inform you our deaths caused by pets toll went up. The total count to date is now 3 raid wipes and 8 individual deaths. This most recent death was caused by Rhodaria's cat Cookies trying to beat the shit out of the other cat Everest in the middle of the Mekkatorque fight. Rho looked up to see what the sound was and BOOM Buster cannon to the face. 

Onward friends! To the rest of the newsletter... 

Guildie of the Week

Offthechaeni

Chaeni was nominated for being the one who kept pushing the whole their may be a secret attunement required for the new raid everyone go do your gosh darn dailies pusher. And thankgoodness because most of us were clueless and moving at a snail's pace. 

To submit a nomination, send an in-game or website mail to Rhodaria. Be sure to specify who the guildie is you are nominating and why you are nominating them. To view the gallery of past winners go to our Guildie of the Week Page.

Guess your Guildmate

Okay I feel like some people are not paying attention. Now, I know I spend a lot of time with Balance, but I am disappointed that he was the only one who guessed ME--Rhodaria as the person who said, "I hate change!". Okay, I will give you one we talked and laughed about for a good 15 minutes this past week. Do you remember who said: 

"A shart is just a fart that wanted to be a poo!"

Submit your guesses on the website, facebook, discord or an in-game mail to Rhodaria for a chance to win even more gold. 

 

To submit a guess for GYG you can comment on this newsletter on the website or on facebook or send Rhodaria an in-game mail. To view previous weeks' challenges view the forum post. 

 

Raiding

So, we can't deny raid attendance has been a hit rough for the second half of Battle for Dazal'alor, and we didn't make it as far as we wanted to (in part becuase we canceled so many raid nights).

Well, we are gonna set that all aside and go running into the new raid tonight! So, hopefully we can get a nice fresh early start on the new amazing raid. Now, there has not been any blue posts confirming or denying the supposed attunement for the new raid...so, I highly recommend everyone who wants to raid show up (quests done or not) and we will see if we can summon people there or some other sneaky thing. I will update people as we know more. 

If that doesn't work I sincerely ask that you work to get the raid unlocked because we want everyone to be having the funs and getting gear in the new raid. 

Don't forget to look over the first few fights for tonight! Let's go kick us some watery butt. 

 

Request for People: Herald of the Titans

Short Version: We are looking for more people who are willing to help the guild get this achievement. Specifically classes that can do either dps or healing. 

Long Version: So, the group of people who had previously set out to get this achievement gave this a shot last weekend only to be painfully hit upside the head with BfA changes making this achievement more difficult to obtain with only a 10 man group. Because they changed it so you can do this as a flex group (10-30 people) and because of the increased damage to tanks, groups that are larger in number (specifically with more healers) has been more successful.

What would you need to do?: Level a toon to 80, then turn off experience gains. We will then help you get geared up and ready to do the achievement. If you are interested please let Rho know and let her know what class/spec you are planning/hoping to do.

  

Guild Bank

New Patch, new mats, new things. That's right with the updates to professions in today's patch we will need a ton of the new mats and craftables. So if you have the time, energy and ability to donate we would appreciate it. We will see if we can get back to providing guild food (remains to be seen how difficult the mats are to get) and the new flasks and potions. For now, any and all of the new mats, flasks, foods etc. are bonus items.

Don't forget these donations should be sent to Oddbee!

 

Reminders

~Seize the day, level a Herald toon~

~Work towards flying~

~Unlock the new raid~

~Dance in the rain, or even inside--just dance~
