Happy Saint-Jean!

Alcohol may be man's worst enemy, but the bible says love your enemy.
Frank Sinatra

Happy Saint-Jean to every quebecois and every americans! The 24th of June is always a special moment in Quebec as it is the equivalent of the Independance day in USA (well kind of).

Following the paien tradition of the old, the quebecois light a big fire in major cities and a lot of citizens do the same in their backyard. And following the new tradition of the really festive people that these habitants have become, it is a time of drinking and joy (well mostly drinking ;P).

Nothing to do with the game, but still an important holiday for a small part of the guild... so have a happy Saint-Jean!

Elder Tribunal clears Karazhan

You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.
Albert Einstein

After many months of work in Karazhan, many nights of frustration and swearing, Elder Tribunal finally cleared the Karazhan raid. After the hardeous work on mastering the strategy on Netherspite, we decided that Nightbane would get it too. Only after three tries on the monstreous undead dragon, we slayed him down with everyone up and mana to spare!

It seems that our expectations about patch 2.01 and the matter of casual raiding really met our expectations: the bosses are doable without ten zillions flasks and all world buffs.

On a final note, let us be proud of our advancement this week but at the same time we should not let all that excitement get in the way of our gameplay. We need to work more on some encounters until they gain the farm status (Prince anyone :P) and set our goal for a cleaning of the instance from both groups every week. Let us share strategies, knowledge toward this goal while also keeping in mind that we are raiding together to have fun! If things goes well we should soonly have the required healing for Gruul's Lair and a glimpse of the upcoming Serpent Shrine. So let's set our heart together and work our way to the 25 man so we can all play together once again!
