Maligned

Ten thousand years ago, Shaohao, the last Pandaren emperor, sought to rule wisely, that he might save Pandaria from ruin. To better his people, Shaohao undertook a grand quest to strip away his own negative emotions. He succeeded, and the doubt, anger, fear and still more that he plucked from himself was imprisoned beneath the earth. But it did not lie still. It seeped into the very land Shaohao hoped to protect.

So finally we have cleared the normal versions just over a week into our renewed campaign and will be starting heroic modes as soon as Sunday when all we have to do is dispatch the Empress again.

Based on how easy twenty five mans have been I do expect progress, more so now that the clock is now ticking to try and bring ourselves up to a good level for 5.2, where the real progress will begin. (I have always hated the first tier when there always seems to be multiple instances)

But for now, heroic modes starting in Mogu-shan Vaults with the Stone Guard and then doing as much as our relaxed three hour raids will allow.

Our roster is filling up nicely but we are always looking for exceptional players with high attendance, so if you are looking for a guild please check out our open slots on WOW Progress on the link above.
The ancient Klaxxi order has come to a mournful decision: the tainted grand empress Shek'zeer must be deposed. Traditionally, mantid rulers are displaced in their old age by a carefully chosen successor. However, Shek'zeer's intended replacement is still too young and weak to unseat her, leaving the Klaxxi with no choice but to kill the current empress. If action is not taken against her soon, all of Pandaria may crumble before the mantid's ravenous swarms.

Having taken it easy over Christmas and our merger back into a twenty five man guild we have started ramping up our first tier campaign. As of our third of four three hour jaunts this week we have killed three new bosses this week and finally cleared the Heart of Fear on normal.

Having rather quickly defeated Amber-Shaper Un'sok on Thursday we had a few goes on the Empress and were soon reaching the third phase but as I was slacking we weren't quite prepared for the third and final phase which required a little coordination and a lot of healing, but after discussing it on our tactics forum everything was soon sorted and we were rewarded with a nice clean kill.

On Tuesday, we will take our first step into the Terrace of the Endless Spring where I have litte doubt we will make some good progress.
The core chamber of the vaults is protected by stone soldiers who have been motionless for centuries. They are row upon row of warriors, statues armed for a battle that never began. What treasures do they guard? And what is their tie to the titanic power buried with them here in the shadows?


Maligned defeated the Will of the Emperor October but as we hit a recent milestone it felt like a good time for a news post.

We have seen many changes in Cataclysm, we were freshly burnt out after our kill of the Lich King and with many leaving the game we made the hard decision to become a ten man guild. Progress in Cataclysm was fine and we made steady progress in both Fireland and the Dragon Soul, killing Deathwing many months before the launch of Mists of Pandaria.

This new expansion, for Maligned, started slowly and we lost some players we didn't want to and others we were glad to see go, but ultimately we struggled to recuit and raid more than once or twice a week which severely hindered our progress.

We made the decision to merge with Outland Shadows and have once again started raiding as a 25 man guild, last night we cleared Mogu'shan Vaults for the first time and have started working our way through the Heart of Fear again, nearly matching the progress of each ten man guild very quickly.

After adjusting our tactics slightly for each fight, each encounter was cleanly executed and it is almost immediatly clear how much more room for error they allow and not having to worry about the classes present, certainly mistakes or RNG that would have wiped us previously were shrugged off and I for one are delighted at the feeling of forward momentum we have again.

We have some catching up to do now and working out the final touches on composition and roles, but things are looking very nice indeed.
