June 2015 Update


Iron Edge June 2015 Update

Greetings members or Iron Edge!

Edgefest 2015 was a great success and I wanted to thank everyone who made it out to London last week to help make it happen. The picture above was the group photo taken in front of a green screen at the London Zoo, and since nobody else wanted to buy it, Grax bought it later secretly to use for this forum. I especially like how Vorte's hand ended up floating because he was wearing a green jacket. From left to right: Grax, Me, Palmar, Narco, Vorte, Shiftey, Ino, Shimmar and of course Grishnag

I wanted to especially thank Delling and Sintrael for letting us use their apartment all weekend so we could play video games, get drunk and play real life mafia. If you're looking for some more pictures of the event, I would point you to this thread.

Now, let's get on with the WoW stuff, shall we.


I am proud to announce that as of this Thursday, the Iron Edge casual raid is 8/10 on Mythic difficulty in the Blackrock Foundry, putting us in a solid position on WoWProgress. We most likely will still have a few weeks to go until the next content patch hits the servers, and we'll be spending that time strengthening our roster and continuing to progress.

Holland Meetup in July

As mentioned in the GMotD, there will be a smaller meet up in Holland on the week of the 20th to the 26th of July. I will make a post later this month with more details about activities that will take place in that week, but everyone that wants to come is invited to join us. I'm very certain at least one of those days will include a visit to a theme park somewhere in the middle of that week, so you'll have that to look forward to.

Thanks for reading, see you all on IRC, on this forum or in WoW!
 

Blackrock Foundry update



Updates and Preparation for Blackrock Foundry
Welp, it’s been a while since I’ve made a new post on here, apologies!

The PvP Team
Due to a small amount of people still interested in playing Rated BG’s and a lack of recruitment, the IE PvP team has been (once again) been put on hold for a while until the interest returns or when we have more time to invite new players that want to play RBG’S.

The Porkchop Warriors
The Porkchop Warriors have been progressing steadily and impressively for the past couple of months, almost having cleared all of the current heroic content. Congratulations to them! Xormn has since acquired officer status and I guess that means it’s official that The Porkchop Warriors aren’t going anywhere! I’m looking forward to seeing how they do in the new wave of content in the upcoming weeks.

The Casual Raid
The Casual Raid has gone through a couple of pretty significant changes over the past few months. Here’s a list:

Implementation of the EPGP System
The Casual Raid has successfully switched to the EPGP lootsystem. The system takes into account what your raid attendance has been, how much loot you’ve gotten and even has a decay system in place to prevent DKP hoarding. Because of this system everyone in the raid is now required to have the EPG LootMaster addon installed. Your DKP can be seen on the updated dkp.iron-edge.co.uk.

Change in leadership, welcome Mooneclipse!
Unfortunately the circumstances of Narcotics’ real life have caused him to still be available for raiding, but no longer able to effectively manage the largest squad of our current raid. Narcotics will remain an important part of the guild leadership, but his duties as squad officer will be taken over by Mooneclipse. Mooneclipse is in charge of the Delta Squad and has to deal with all those nasty hunters and mages. Good luck to him!

Preparations for Blackrock Foundry
So now that Highmaul is almost behind us, let’s start preparing for the (much larger) instance of Blackrock Foundry. BRF will have 10 bosses, and to familiarize ourselves with all of them we will be clearing the instance on normal difficulty in the first week. Obviously this means that you will all need to know the tactics and strategies for all of the fights in the instance. You can expect video’s and guides in your respective squad threads and what else will be expected of you.’
Looking forward to seeing you all in Blackrock Foundry!
 

Introducing the Iron Edge Squad Raid System!

 

Iron Edge in WoD!



Prepare yourself
The wait is finally over. It's time to get back to raiding some new content.
Lot's of exciting changes are coming to WoW in Warlords of Draenor. But obviously I'm most excited about finally getting back to raiding with you guys.
Every raid up until the hardest difficulty is going to have a flexible amount of players. But that doesn't stop IE from doing it's usual 25-man raiding! We'll need you guys to be ready and geared when the instances open, so make sure you level up to 100 quickly!

Challenges Ahead
It's going to be harder for Iron Edge to position itself in the market now that 10-man heroic raiding is gone. It's going to be more difficult to prove how great we are and attract some of the best players on the server. That's why we need to be even better than we were in this last tier, but I have every confidence that we will be.

More Raids!
I'm insanely excited for this. For the first time in a couple of years, Iron Edge will finally go back to having more than one raid as well! You guys will now have the option of raiding with two different raiding teams this expansion:

The Iron Edge 25-man Casual Raid
As usual this raid will be fighting evil game mechanics on Monday and Thursday. The priority will be the same since its inception four years ago; Getting the most out of the limited raiding time we have, and having fun doing it. Sign up here.

                             Xormn's Dorito Raid: The Weekend Porkchop Warriors (Working title, but I like it a lot)
Xormn and his friends will be hosting a weekend raid. We don't have the exact details of this yet, but it will be a raid that only plays on the weekends. If you want to see all that WoW-raiding has to offer but can't do it during the week, make sure you keep an eye out for more details about this raid. Sign up here.

I hope you guys are as hyped as I am. I'm looking forward to playing with all of you in WoD. If you have any ideas that you'd like to talk about or pursue in WoD, please post them here or contact the guild leadership!
 

Iron Edge Summer Meetup 2014

Iron Edge Summer Meetup 2014


Bendiee getting ready to pop defensive cooldowns

Aretum and I have decided to go over and meet some of our Norwegian members in the great city of Stavanger! I was there for a full week and Aretum came over for the last four days (which ended up being great because I felt like shit for the first three days!).

If I had any advice for you guys about going to Norway, it would be that you make sure you bring enough cash. For example, buying a Whopper at Burger King will cost you 79 Norwegian kroner (€9.37 or £7.41). I haven't asked if they accept a kidney as payment, but I imagine they would.

I’ve learned a couple of things about my fellow guildies while I was in Norway:

- When Mooneclipse decides to commit to something, he goes ham. I don’t remember seeing anyone play as much arena as he did in that week, but he got pretty fucking good at it!
- Bendiee’s shower is not in any way designed to prevent water from getting out, so we had to rely on everyone’s waterbending skills to keep the water as contained as possible. I am ashamed to say that I’m not very good at waterbending.
- Bendiee gets very touchy when he’s drunk, but in a good way ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
- Glacio might be the most attractive human being I’ve ever seen, unfortunately he got completely rekt by glutens. He also makes some fantastic sandwiches.
- Bendiee’s sister brought home a really nice (drunk) guy that I was able to give some tech advice to. She then presumably had sex with him in the room next to us.
- The Norwegian healthcare system will not hesitate to give you any kind of drugs you want.
- Bendiee’s roommate Olav is the hero Iron Edge needs and deserves. We’re working on getting him into WoW and Iron Edge as soon as possible.
- Emopuff was sitting directly across from Mooneclipse. Surprisingly they're not as hard to tell apart IRL as they are on TeamSpeak.
- They have a softdrink called Solo (Often referred to as 8olo). It's one of those strangely disgusting drinks that you just can't get enough of. I'm still detoxing from that shit.
- We also had another guy there called Øyvind, he'll be joining the guild soon too.
- ༼つ ◕_◕༽つ AMENO ༼ つ ◕_◕༽つ

Here are some more pictures from the trip (click on images for higher res):

Spotting a real life doge was obviously the highlight of my week

I'd like to thank everyone that was able to make it to the meetup and for making it possible. I hope to see you all again soon!

Iron Edge will be turning 10 years old in February. We haven't made any plans for how we might celebrate this occasion, but make sure to check the forum regularly in case we make announcements regarding this historic moment!
 

Iron Edge Summer Update



Garrosh Heroic Down!
After months of struggling in 25-man, then switching to 10-man, the Iron Edge raiding team has finally slain the final boss of the game in Mists of Pandaria. Garrosh was definitely a challenge, not because of how hard the mechanics were, but because the fight had a lot of random shit and was over 12 minutes long, it took us over 200 tries to get him.

Iron Edge has also made some changes on the PvP team. We tragically had to say goodbye to some of the guild leadership, but Iím confident the PvP team has pulled through and is strong.

The Iron Edge 25-man raiding team will be pulling itself back together for Warlords of Draenor. Recruiting will start immediately and I expect the raiding to start as soon as the content becomes available. Make sure to check up on the forums when the pre-patch hits, if you want to secure a spot on the new raiding team.
