This post is a little late, but we have been busy… taking it easy while we wait for the next raiding tier. 🙂
On the 28th of September, we celebrated the full clear of Tomb of Sargeras heroic with the kill of Kil’jaeden.
This was a hard one. But as usual, our raiders did not give up and did an amazing job of executing the Kil’jaeden encounter and getting the Ahead of the Curve achievement.

Tomb of Sargeras was a strange raiding tier, with some bosses being quite hard while others were a little too easy, but it was a good raid.
The team is now looking forward to Antorus, the Burning Throne, and we are actually looking for a couple of healers to join our team

Check out our recruitment forum!

Our raiders are awesome, as they are now working on Gul’dan heroic (more piccies about heroic Nighthold 9/10 in a future post), but they also like to play for fun!

The night is dark and full of terrors

Prelude tradition of friday night runs with music and booze is well established, and socials and friends know they can join and be more than welcome!
What happens on friday nights stay in friday nights, so we are *not* reporting attempted murders, padding meters or general misbehaviour *cough* but the last run was even darker than normal…

if you don’t see anything in the pictures, this is exactly the point! Spoiler: get some Inky Black Potion!

Some guildies like hard challenges…

Our warrior Aryla is the first in the guild to get the insanely hard scenario for the challenge Artifact look done. According to our data he could be even the first or second warrior on Dragonblight!
In the realm top three for sure, anyway, so we are very very proud of him!
Good job Aryla you are a gem of the warrior class and we /salute you.

…and some guildies are just crazy cat ladies!

Prelude tradition of battle pet collections started with our mage Sfendourax topping the realm rank for nearly two expansions. Check his interview here in the blog!

At the moment we have 5 guildies ranked in the realm top50, with Blindio (3rd priest) leading at 27th and Fleurexq (4th hunter) close second at 29th. It’s not a suprise to meet guildies when the weekly battle pet event happens, and it seems everybody likes the trick to level low pets with the Iron Starlette in Stormheim. Rumour has it somebody used nearly 1000 pet bandages between fights….

Trial of Valor heroic done!

As in the Prelude tradition, we managed to clear heroic Trial of Valor before the release of the new raid, The Nighthold.

Congratulations to our raiders for the Ahead of the Curve achievement!

While we already defeated 8/10 encounters in normal Nighthold, we are now looking for healers to help us in heroic.
A tree would be most welcome, tho we wont promise anything about campfires and/or standing in fire …

The Emerald Nightmare heroic is cleansed from corruption too!

In early november we got our Ahead of the Curve achievement for Emerald Nightmare heroic.
The Dream has been restored, Cenarius has been saved, and everything is fine in the Emerald outerworld

Well done raiders of Prelude!

Prelude is waiting for Legion, but in the while we are not resting on our laurels!

As we had some guildies who couldnt join our first kills, we decided to clear heroic Hellfire Citadel again and get more achievements and more mounts

Congratulations guys for your success!

And so it ends… again! Archimonde seems to have forgotten the lesson we gave him in Mount Hyjal and he traveled space and time to find us ready to kill him… again!
We also found some clues that led us to meet Malfurion in Moonglade and we learned that the Emerald Nightmare is not properly gone. Ah-HA! What’s the next challenge that is waiting for us?

Congratulations raiders of Prelude for clearing Hellfire Citadel heroic and getting the Ahead of the Curve achievement!

PS Malfurion was also so nice to gift us a mount and … Cenarion Cirle reputation. Like we are strangers! Tsk tsk

We had a little break in our blogging, but that doesn’t mean the guild stopped raiding 🙂

In the last three months we completed heroic Blackrock Foundry:

Iron Maidens wins the award for the most annoying boss encounter of wow history. 10 minutes of nothing followed by 2 chaotic and messy ones, leading to boring wipes at the 11th minute or worse and then again and again and again… Prelude doesn’t approve of this fight!
The only happy people were our hunters with their new shiny spearguns. Hunter weaponz FTW

The Blast Furnace, on the contrary, is a fun fight and for some strange reason phase 2 got the best out of us. We mastered the encounter quickly and we boldly stepped into the last challenge…

Blackhand, Warlord of the Blackrock, was a wall we crashed into. The heroic fight is hard, and it was hard for us to learn it. We had rotations and replacements in our raiding roster, full nights of wiping, everything that reminded us of when we were hardcore and had to endure nights and nights of no progression and frustration. But we are Prelude… “Never give up. Never surrender.” And finally, at the very last minute before the patch, just in time to get the Ahead of the Curve achievement, we killed him. No warlord rules forever!

Thank you everyone for the nice raiding season in this first Draenor tier! On Blackhand kill we had our full current roster of raiders and everyone was doing great. A special mention to our raid leader Pao and our kiter Oldi the mage, but on the kill everyone did their best, healers, tanks, melees and ranged. Good job Prelude!
