It would appear that my long-term investment plan has finally paid off: 10 years as a non-stop WoW subscriber has netted me this fabulous statue/figurine/plaything which my wife oddly enough doesn't think is suitable for displaying in the living room. Will have to see about finding a good spot somewhere in my somewhat crowded office.

We had a very successful raid on Saturday the 20th December 2014, with Imperator Mar'Gok being killed.
He was the last of the Highmaul bosses to be defeated and so we will continue to progress into Highmaul Heroic in future raids. I believe that there will also be the usual Highmaul Normal raids for gearing up as well as possible achievement runs when possible.

To summarize, we did have a few wipes getting used to the mechanics of the fight, namely the Arcane Wrath ability (taking the amount of stacks to a maximum of 4), avoiding the Destructive Resonance (mines) and focusing on killing the Arcane Aberrations as soon as they spawned.
Once we had the order down and were able to avoid as much damage as possible, we were able to nuke down the boss in the final phase while only switching from him to nuke down the arcane aberrations as they spawned. At this point the boss was below 10% health so we focused all dps onto him and got him down.
We were quite disappointed that he didn't drop gear for anyone so we won;t be using the personal loot system in future.

Sadly I forgot to take a photo after the kill, and so this post will have to serve as 7/7 Highmaul Normal clear.
I was able to log the fight and here is the link on warcraftlogs WDA Openraid 20th Dec 2014

Thank you all for reading and we hope to see you in the future raids ;)

A new expansion launch, so new areas to explore, new bosses to fight and new raids to crush. WDA its time to sharpen your weapons and show the iron horde what we are made of!

A few leveling tips:

  • Do the bonus objectives as you go past them, they give a lot of experience for barely any work. About 60-70k experience per bonus.
  • Kill all rares/elites when you find them for some extra experience.
  • Open treasures (they will outline purple) they give about 10k experience per treasure.
  • Make sure to keep your garrison up to date during leveling, they give extra materials for your professions and they're going to be very helpfull at maxlevel.

Challenge modes are the way to gear up before the first raid. Later on apexis crystals are nice to fill up spots that you haven't been able to get. So far the apexis gear seems to be too expensive to get a full set of since it goes through upgrade tiers.

The apexis crystal cap is 20.000 crystals. More info about apexis crystals can be found on wowhead

It looks like we have 3 to 4 weeks to get maxlevel and geared up before the first raidtier comes out. When the definite releasedate comes out these will be posted on the raiding forums. So make sure you keep an eye on those so you are well prepared to crush some bosses when the raids are launched.

When the raiding starts:

WDA's own openraid group will continue again once the raids launch. For more information on our openraid team please read the sticky on the raidingforums. There we have information about the raiding times, and where to sign.

Welcome to the new website of We Die Alot, a 9 year old alliance guild on Doomhammer!

At the moment WDA is getting ready for Warlords of draenor! Now with the date known when Warlords is getting launched we are all getting a little bit much excited to mow down some new bosses.

Currently we are building up a 10m team and stil raiding in SoO.
Once we get enough players willing to raid in a nice casual relaxed atmosphere we will be expanding to a 25 man team so we can do mythic in Warlords.
