Iron Edge
 

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.

                             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. There will be a detailed information post coming up soon.

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 Im 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.
 

Iron Edge Spring Update!

Iron Edge Spring Update!

As most of you already know, the raid has gone on break for the remainder of Mists of Pandaria. There had been a steady decline in the amount of active players in the group, and that eventually ended up forcing us to go on break before being able to kill Garrosh heroic. Only a small group of dedicated players have picked up 10-man raiding to finish the content, and weve just killed off Siegecrafter (12/14HC).
Of course the guild is already preparing for the upcoming changes in Warlords of Draenor, and the 25man raid will make a strong return once the expansion hits.

Meanwhile, Hearthstone has already launched and some much needed balance changes are being put in. After the overwhelming success of the first tournament, Ive already begun planning for the second one! Ill post an update and more details about that once weve killed Garrosh heroic.

Enjoy this screenshot of the 10man finally killing off Siegecrafter:

RBG Team back on its feet, Second wing in SoO HC Down and Changes to recruitment

The Iron Edge Rated Battleground Team is back in business.

After one of the longer breaks in the history of the team, Anarawen has taken it upon herself to get it back on track. Tuesday was the first time the team came together again, and it already got a very nice positive win-loss ratio. I've decided to make a screenshot in the same location as I did with the original RBG team for nostalgia reasons. Unfortunately the current RBG system doesn't support 15-player RBG's anymore, but it's the thought that counts, right?





Second wing in The Siege of Orgrimmar Heroic down!
The Iron Edge Casual raid is completely unstoppable at the moment. Only a short while after we've cleared the first wing, the second wing has also gone down.

The second wing in the Siege of Orgrimmar is arguably one of the more easy wings in the instance, with only Dark Shamans being commonly known as a challenge. To give you an insight of how hard Dark Shamans is; Midwinter, the best alliance guild in the world, wiped several times on this fight during the Live Raid event at Blizzcon. It took Iron Edge about five hours of wiping to get them down, and it ended up in a glorious kill, with only two people dying in the entire 10-minute fight.

Shortly after the Dark Shamans kill, on the same night, we killed the last boss in the second wing; General Nazgrim. I didn't take a screenshot because, well, to be honest, the kill felt pretty underwhelming considering how easy it was compared to Dark Shamans. But it's an impressive achievement nonetheless!

Changes to Recruitment
You'll see the website undergo a few changes in the coming days, as we're gearing up to make some adjustments to the current recruitment system. We're also changing our direction with our recruitment a bit. We're about to go into a period with barely any new content, so we need to have the guild nice and strong before then. So we're going to focus on recruiting PvPers and social members. Any suggestions you might have to improve recruitment you can post in this thread. As a preview this is what the information image will look like for our new PvP members.
