What a week it's been for Portent Alliance!
As mentioned in a recent post, we finally downed Yogg-Saron in 10-man Ulduar. Sure, there are other guilds elsewhere who have him on farm, but you have to understand we had a few setbacks since this summer when we first got to General. It felt really good to finally get that last push and down Yoggy. We finally got that monkey off our backs!
Next, we did a fun run of Black Temple on Friday. It was only our third time in there as a guild...ever. We were not up to BT at the end of Burning Crusade, and we've been focused on raids that grant upgrades and progression now. So going back and seeing the sights has been an enjoyable break. Not only was it fun, though, but Udiyvli walked out of there carrying Illy-beans's other Warglaive of Azzinoth. I guess we WERE prepared, eh?
Finally, we've been wanting to get this together for a while now, and finally managed to do it: Sarth3D. Getting the right mix of people so as not to step on the toes of either raid group, plus accomodate Real Life(TM) was the challenge. We have the people, but the schedule is another story. However, we did it...we finally did it! Here we are, posing with our new "of the Nightfall" titles next to Sartharion's butt.
Now, "What does the title to this entry mean?" you're probably asking.... As mentioned below, we are the number one strict 10-man guild on the server. But interestingly enough, we are #11 in overall 10-man progression (#5 Horde-side), we were the 11th guild to down Yoggy on 10-man, and the 11th guild to do Sarth3D on 10-man. We are very proud of this status and what we have achieved as a guild.
As for what's up next: We have a 25-man run on the calendar, Team 1 is going to start pushing some more heroic achievements, and Team 2 is very near to clearing the ToC raid.
