Ahhh how cool is to see that yet another Gul’dan falling? Our revenge is done!

Prelude fully cleared The Nighthold in normal difficulty shortly after the release.
The new raid is really interesting, some fun fights, some breathtaking scenery, some hint of nostalgia (Sunwell Plateau anyone?)… and revenge, sweet revenge 😀  Plus the badass return of some winged char we all love!
Prelude approved™

Did you notice how amazing is the background of Gul’dan encounter? Dalaran on one side, and a portal to the abyss on the other, with space, stars and a scary planet

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 …

Who dares to challenge our valor? We are veterans of many many fights!
Sorry Odyn, your so called Trial of Valor in normal is already old history: you can thank us for defeating your enemy Helya
You are welcome!

you can see the defiance our raiders showed when challenged: look at pandas, gnomes and demons jumping into hell portals like Helheim is a walk in the park 🙂

The Emerald Nightmare normal cleansed: Dream restored!

BY PRELUDE BE PURGED! no Nightmare can stand the cleansing power of our raiders!

The first week of raiding went well and we learned the basics of all the fights in the Emerald Nightmare, killing all seven bosses.
Good job everyone!

The only minor quibble is we have only one gnome left in the roster – you can see her front line in all the screenies – so her secret plan to take over the guild is a bit on hold.
If a healer or a ranged dps would like join her, we have room for more gnomes!!!

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

Heroic Hellfire Citadel 12/13: only last boss left!

So what happens if a Draenei Paladin becomes evil and accepts the fel touch? You get a very annoying boss with Auras, Seals and every kind of mocking pally abilities to defeat…

…but Prelude is here to fight any evil and we triumphed against Tyrant Velhari!
Archimonde here we come!

Good job raiders!

Hello guildies! Prelude raiding season has restarted and we cleared the first six encounters in heroic difficulty.
As you can see in the kills shootings, we welcomed back gnomes, dwarves, worgens and bears so the raiding roster is in full shape again.

As Prelude tradition, we had two double strike nights in first kills, and some 2-1 % wipes before to get them down. Gorefiend kill was the funnier one, he nearly wiped us but we had him with just 3 raiders alive at the end 🙂
Now we are working on Archimonde normal while we progress in our heroic clearing.

Have a nice raiding season everyone!

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!
