Webs Unwoven

Elder Tribunal has been very busy! In between saving Metzen and destroying the Greench, we've been visitting some of Northrend's most wanted, and gathering presents of our own. First, congratulations to ET on their full clear of the Spider Wing of Naxxramas! Two guild firsts in this wing...

To find fulfillment...don't exist with life...embrace it.

Grand Widow Faerlina, the second boss of Spider Wing, unlike the first is not all about the tanks. This cultist demands coordination and output from the DPS, and they came through for us here, after one practice attempt.

Malice sucks up the greater part of her own venom, and poisons herself.
-Michael de Montaigne

Maexxna, final boss of Spider Wing, is an enormous spider that gorges herself on the corpses of hapless adventurers. Quite the imposing figure for our rag-tag band. Healers and Tanks really came through on this one, to pull us out of spider's web at the last moment.

We also tried our hand at the Plague Wing and met with success. Noth the Plaguebringer was ET's first ONE SHOT in Naxxramas. Great job, everyone. No photo for this one, the Lich King recalled this servant of darkness before we had time to commemorate his demise. Loot will prove with photography fails. We also worked on Heigan the Unclean, and attempted to prove that white men can dance.

In other realms, the Black Dragonflight's days slowly comb to an end, as the Elders keep pressure on their breeding grounds beneath Wyrmrest, within the Obsidian Sanctum. On our first night in OS, we downed Sartharion, and have done so multiple times a week since!

Once there as the People - Terror gave it birth;
Once there was The People, and it made a hell of earth!
Earth arose and crushed it. Listen, oh, ye slain!
Once there was The People - it shall never be again!
-Rudyard Kipling

Finally, we returned to Outland to lay waste to Tempest Keep, and the false Prince of the Blood Elves. Kael'thas down!

All power corrupts, but we need the electricity.
