Last night Team 1 downed hard mode Sindragosa and earned [Glory of the Icecrown Raider (10)], earning a major feather in the collective Portent Alliance cap:

According to GuildOx...
We are the #1 "Casual" 10-man raiding guild on Sentinels.
We are the #2 guild in 10-man progression Horde-side.
We are the #6 10-man progression guild on the server (meaning the other 5 guilds are 25-man guilds with 25-man gear doing 10-man progression).
The only way we can move up in progression rankings is to beat 25-man guilds to the Hard Mode Lich King fight.

Team 1 is going to take a well-earned 2-week break from progression content. Instead, we're going to be Team 2's official cheerleading squad.

Amusing notes about the Sindy fight:

On previous attempts we had plenty of time. On our winning attempt, she actually enraged. She had just enough time to take out the two tanks and turned to the healers when the DPS dropped her.

Everyone was so excited about getting the Frostwyrms (which were somehow mailed to us) that we almost completely forgot to loot Sindy and instead crowded around a MOLL-E dropped in the middle of the battlefloor.

We had a hard time finding a place to take a picture since the around around ICC is phased. We finally took our picture on top of the Violet Citadel in Dalaran with Icecrown in the background. Then we took our required turn hovering over the well by the north bank, overshadowing some poor player who had just earned his Red Protodrake.

Now...imagine a fleet of these in Cataclysm, flying into the Crossroads when it comes under attack!

 

Team 1 on their Frostwyrms after completing [Glory of the Icecrown Raider (10)]!

 

Congrats Team 1, and Congrats Portent Alliance!

Yet another update! Whee!

First of all: THE PORTENTS WILL BE RAIDING BLIZZCON 2010!! Through some fast-clicking and networking with Twitter folks, we have a bunch of Portents members who will be going to BlizzCon this year! As usual, I look forward to seeing everyone, and it will be the largest turnout of Portents members yet! Last year Udiyvli, Ailinea, Jezriyah, Entropian, Wernstrom, Maelyne, and Nycodemus all went and had a blast. This year we look forward to seeing some more faces including Bosorn, Cadistra, Callieta, Cervus, Lothloren, Nairobi, and Thuryn. Hopefully Entropian, Kattja, Maelyne, and Wernstrom will be able to come up for a visit as well. Dinner Thursday night? I hope I didn't forget anyone...that's quite a few people as it is!

Raid Team 2 has defeated Sindragosa and we'll hopefully have another 10 people wearing "the Kingslayer" titles this week! I need to poke at someone else to make this portion of the update...

Raid Team 1 has begun working on Hard Modes and the other achievements necessary for the Frost Wyrm mounts. We've downed the "Fun Ship" on Hard, last night we downed Marrowgar's hard mode, and have also taken out all except the Sindragosa and Lich King non-hard mode achievements. We DID get [Portal Jockey] but thanks to a bug we didn't get credit. Thankfully we know the method and should be able to claim it this week.

Saturdays have become very successful 25-man raid nights, too! We've been clearing Lower Spire, but either this week or next week we're going to start extending the lockout to begin working on the Upper Spire fights. We also take out VoA and sometimes the weekly raid (if people need it) on Saturdays.

I think that's all the real news for now.

I'm going to show this off because I can.

Once again, I've been slacking with page updates. Things happen too fast that by the time I want to blog about it, it's long past. But I'm gonna keep this short...

Both raid teams have been having a staggering amount of success! Up until last night, Team 2 had caught up to Team 1's progression. This is the Little Team That Could...1-shotting (healing?) the Dreamwalker fight and learning Blood Princes (despite the glitch where the disco balls weren't spawning in the raid area) and Lana'thel very quickly last week. To clear ICC, they just need to take down Sindragosa and the Lich King.

Since I'm not on that team, it's hard for me to go into further detail. I also don't have screenshots for obvious reasons. I'd love for a member to submit some to me to show off here! (Hint hint!)

Team 1 just took down Sindragosa tonight! Seems we've been plagued with technical difficulties (such as people's internet going on the fritz in the final phase) or required out-of-town trips (RL comes first, of course) that interfered with our raiding, but we finally got her!

 

Portent Alliance takes down Sindragosa!

Arthas has been put on notice. Portent Alliance is coming for him!
