07 Feb 2016 - Archimonde Mythic Down!


Congratulations for killing yet another final boss of an expansion. Some people in the raid (*cough Romeo cough*) said that Archimonde was one of the easier final bosses we’ve had in a long time, but I disagree wholeheartedly. Regardless we were able to kill it and now we have entered the longest content drought in the history of World of Warcraft. So what’s next for Iron Edge?

Our New Forum!
If my estimations are correct, you should be reading this front page post on our brand new forum! The guild has just turned another year older (11 years now!) So we thought it was time it gets updated to the latest version on a brand new server. So we should be able to shitpost for a long time without any interruptions. We’ll also be taking steps in the near future to add new features to it, as well as simplifying its current layout and retiring some of the older boards we don’t use anymore, so keep an eye out for that!
You can see all your unread posts in the top right corner from now on. If you have any other questions about this new forum, please contact me, Grax or any other officer and I’m sure they’ll be able to help you out. I wanted to give Grax and Delling a special thanks. Grax for making this new forum happen, and Delling for hosting our forum and our Teamspeak for all these years!

The Iron Edge Summer Meetup!
The next Iron Edge meetup is scheduled to be in early June in accordance with the release date of the Warcraft Movie that’s scheduled to come out on June 3rd in the UK. So it’ll either be the weekend of June 3-4-5, or the week after, June 10-11-12. I’m hosting a meeting after the raid on Monday the 8th on TeamSpeak, so anyone interested in coming out to England this summer should attend it! We can perhaps change the date of the weekend if too many people are unable to attend, but I’d like to plan it as close to the Warcraft movie as possible.

What are we going to do in WoW?
As I’ve stated before, a lot of players will still be around during this content drought, including me. We’ll continue the raid for the foreseeable future, but after that I’d like to get back into my old passion: PvP. If you’re interested in joining the rated battleground team, let me know in this thread and we’ll see if we have enough people interested in slaying some alliance (or horde) in the near future.

A change in the leadership
Unfortunately Andreas (Valkyrie) is going to be taking a well-deserved break from raiding for the foreseeable future. Because of this, I am happy to announce that Ryan (Atlanteans) will be taking over his duties as healing officer while we farm the current content, and of course he will continue doing the job in Legion! Hopefully Andreas will be back for Legion to raid with us again.

Thank you all for a great expansion. I hope to see a lot of familiar and new faces at the Iron Edge Meetup this year, and I’m looking forward to playing WoW with you when Legion comes out!

Check out our nerdscreams for the Archimonde kill!

17 Dec 2015 - Christmas!



I wanted to start off by wishing everyone a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year ( ͡ ͜ʖ ͡)

Raid Break
The following raids are cancelled because of the holidays:

Thursday the 24th
Monday the 28th
Thursday the 31st

The last raid of 2015 will be on Monday the 21st of December and the first raid of 2016 will be on Monday January 4th. Monday the 4th will be a farm raid to get some more gear.

Archimonde
We will continue our progress on Archimonde Mythic after that. I want to remind everybody that we are looking for new members to add to our roster so that we can make sure that we can kill Archimonde and continue to clear him in the future.

After Archimonde is dead
As it stands now, we will clear Archimonde for as long as people are willing to stick around so that many people can get the mount. We'll need a dedicated bunch of people who are willing to prioritize raiding over their real life activities. But for those who do want to spend some more time doing other things, not to worry, Legion is still very far away and there will be plenty of time where the raid will not have scheduled raids. Instead, there will be other activities that require less than 20 people. I was mostly thinking in lines of PvP, but if you guys have other ideas I'd love to try those too.

Meetup
I'm also going to start planning the summer meet up for 2016. It's probably going to be around the launch of the Warcraft movie (think June) and it will be in the middle of the UK (think Birmingham/Liverpool area). But of course planning is still in the early stages and there will be several discussions before we set anything in stone.

Anyway, enjoy the holidays and I'm looking forward to playing with and meeting up with you guys in 2016!

06 Jun 2015 - 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!
IRON EDGE TURNS 10 YEARS OLD!
Happy Birthday!


According to that image, Iron Edge was founded on the 27th of February 2005. Which means that 10 years ago today, IE’s first guild leader Kaos trolled around Orgrimmar looking for people to sign his guild petition.

First Guild Leader: Kaos

Kaos was Iron Edge’s first guild leader and was in charge of the raid for most of vanilla WoW. It’s safe to say that he laid the foundation for what later became the core of Iron Edge’s raid team, as well as a lot of people who hang around IRC today. Kaos also created IE’s website, which was actually ironedge.co.uk at the time (that domain is now being used for a company that sells workout equipment). Here’s a snapshot of what our website used to look like from the wayback machine (Credit to Cwave for digging this up!)

Somewhere in the period that Kaos was in charge, he was an employee of Blizzard Entertainment. He was able to secure alpha spots for TBC for many old guild members at the time. He only told a few people that he worked for Blizzard, as he had to keep it a secret. Unfortunately it didn’t take very long before some guildies found out and started abusing it:

Quote
[15:31] <Grishnag> And then smorisha went all like "you can't report me my guild leader works for blizzard" i think it was smorisha at least, it was definitely a serb

Kaos was forced to leave the guild after that. Some of the members tracked him down a few years later only to find out that he was now in a guild with other Blizzard employees. However, a long time before Kaos actually left, IE had already gotten a new raid leader..


Second Guild Leader: Delling.

Iron Edge under the leadership of Delling was the golden age of IE’s long PvE history. The Iron Edge A-raid was a force to be reckoned with, not just on a server-level, but worldwide as well. Throughout the later instances of Vanilla WoW, TBC and WotLK, the raid group was able to get a large number of Realm First’s. Unfortunately none of them made it through after the implementation of Guild Achievements and the later guild-migration to Kazzak.

I’ve had the privilege of raiding a few times under Delling with the A-raid during Ulduar and it was truly some of the most awe inspiring raiding I’ve done, and it has certainly had an impact on how I do things in raids even today.

Another development in IE’s long PvE history was the inception of the B-raid under the glorious leadership of Hugman. I’m sure even Hugman at that time did not know what level of disgusting casual raiding he had started, but what he started back then is now the Iron Edge Casual Raid.

Third Guild Leader: Gaeios
Delling was Iron Edge’s guild leader for the longest time in its history so far, but Gaeios is catching up. After Delling had a long period of inactivity, he finally handed Gaeios the reigns to the guild.

Gaeios is (as far as I know) the only person to have signed the original IE guild petition that is still active in WoW today. Gaeios was never a raid leader, but he had Yoica to fall back on, who did an excellent job leading the B-raid from Cataclysm into Mists of Pandaria. These days he has entrusted that responsibility to me. Gaeios has managed to keep Iron Edge going and doing a great job at it, even while his real life situation has gotten pretty insane. Recently he was finishing up his masters degree, working a job and having a child, all while leading Iron Edge and keeping it the great community that it is today.

I’d like to personally thank all friends who might stumble upon this forum who have been with Iron Edge in these great 10 years, and a special thanks to those who have gone out their way to be a leader in the community throughout these years.

- Yoica, for being an amazing raid leader of the B-raid
- Hugman, for being responsible for the creation of the B-raid and leading it as well
- Daekesh, for leading the A-raid and putting up with the Serbians for as long as you did
- Goza, for being the Queen of Silvermoon (I still don't know why his note says that)
- All of the class and guild officers we’ve had, including those we have today; Aretum, Valkyrie, Mooneclipse, Saffie and of course Narcotics.

I’ve collected some screenshots in no particular order that were sufficiently old enough to perhaps get some nostalgia going, obviously if you have any screenshots to share, please do.

Thanks for a great 10 years and hopefully many more years to come!

26 Jan 2015 - 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!
