Argo has been with the guild since the Molten Core days. In vanilla, he mained a mage (Adresirena). Glass cannon pew pew DPS. He came into a leadership role in Blackwing Lair helping with the website and leading the mages. When the guild merged with another, he stepped up into a council role. And when the guild reformed in Burning Crusade, he was one of the co-GM's.
Since Burning Crusade, his main has been a warrior. You'll usually find him tanking bosses and leading our raids.
A gnome at heart, and a dirty melf in appearance. Osiris joined the guild back in Blackwing Lair. He's been a mage since the beginning and some say he casts magic missiles in real life. He stepped up as a class lead in AQ40 and Naxx. When Burning Crusade rolled around, he proved himself invaluable and was promoted up to one of the co-GM's of the guild.
Nowadays you'll find him yelling at DPS who stand in fire while leading our raids.
Bummy. Grindlord. What else is there to say? Most of the guild owes Bummy for getting their weekly Mythic+15 cache run done. A rockstar raider who rarely misses a raid, pumps out insane damage and is only slightly retarded with mechanics. Plus he can tank. A true unicorn.
Fsixteen, or SuicideSkipp, is one of those unicorn raiders. Insane DPS, doesn't fuck up mechanics, near 100% attendance, and can help take on announcing abilities on a boss fight. He's also our resident guild streamer on Twitch. What's his secret? Never raid sober.
Vegan? Check. Carrying the mistweaver flag through the good and the bad? Check and Check. When he's not writing guides for wowhead, doing podcasts, or streaming, you'll find Anom in our healer discord channel leeching off of Viserios healing CD sheet to help us look good.
Donkey! Our resident 5% magic debuff. We're beyond lucky that he has near perfect attendance because he's our only Demon Hunter. It doesn't hurt that he also plays well and is vocal when he sees us making sub-optimal decisions. Donkey joined us in 2020 and he's been a staple on the roster ever since.
We haven't had to recruit a tank since 2019, thanks to Sholdice. Another hero of near perfect attendance, he is an anchor of reliability on our roster. Rumor has it he's Canadian, but we refuse to believe that because we like him. A master of the Monk, but flexible enough to play what's needed, we're looking forward to seeing him on a Deathknight in Dragonflight.
Imagine a warlock that can play any spec, output top tier dps, is insanely reliable, maintains an alt army, and somehow finds the time to play classic. Now imagine that warlock is also toxic, and you have Higglet. You'll know you've been accepted into the guild once Higglet starts flaming you for playing poorly. He's been with us since 2018. Did we mention he also handles a large portion of our recruiting? Good luck.
2019 was a good year for us, as that is also when Dreigis joined our ranks. A rogue at heart, who's been known to dabble as a Demon Hunter in an emergency, Dreigis is the kind of raider every guild wants - he shows up, does his job, doesn't complain, and volunteers to sit when others want to play. You can slot him in on any fight, tell him once what you need to happen, and never have to worry about him again. The prefect raider.
We took a gamble on Fred in 2019 as he was new to the raiding scene. You wouldn't know it today because he embodies everything that makes a hybrid player valuable. Ranged, Melee, Healing - it doesn't matter - he can do it all at a high level. There are too many bosses to list that wouldn't have died if it weren't for his versatiltiy. As such, we grant him the occasional shaman brain-fart pass and pretend we don't see him instantly ankh when he dies to an avoidable mechanic.
Graccu joined DU in 2018 as a shadowpriest. He got to DPS about 3 bosses before we needed a flex healer and he volunteered. 4 years later and he's healed nearly every progression boss we've ever killed. He's finally earned the break from healing and will be moving to melee dps in Dragonflight. Fun fact, Graccu is on a first name basis with his ISP's support staff, because he's got the worst internet we've ever seen. Somehow he still manages to perform.
Aka Ibubbleu - Z is another 2019 pickup that waves the flex flag proudly. As a shadowpriest he's been forced to ride the blizzard rollercoaster of balance more than most, but he keeps his head up and somehow finds a way to be viable and valuable. Z has stepped in on critical bosses and healed us to victory. He is also no stranger to helping us tweak a strategy or look at a fight from another perspective. Just don't ask for his PI - you'll have to pry it from his cold dead hands.
Our fallen brother. Srhard inherited the GM role of our original guild back in Blackwing Lair. As our main tank, he led us through BWL, AQ40, and Naxx in Vanilla. In Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King, he shared GM powers and raid leadership with Argo and Osiris while continuing to main tank. In Cataclysm, real-life reared its ugly head and forced him to quit. While he's been back a few times, he keeps getting called back to real-life responsibilities. We suck air through our teeth to this day in honor of his memory.
Fasc, aka Plaguelust, aka fatty bear, has been with us since our original server Gorefiend. Most people know him as the theorycrafting bear from the official forum. He annoyed Blizzard so much with his math that they put an item in the game named after him. Or, you know, they respected his contributions. Whatever. While he's currently taking a break from the game, we all know he'll be back eventually.
Argo's e-son Sassenach has also been with us since our original server Gorefiend. He started raiding with us when he was 12. It was a different time back then. But still, WTF were we thinking? I'm pretty sure we scarred him for life. A proud jew who enjoys bacon, his inability to run around pillars is one of the many legends that live on to this day in the guild. Maybe he'll be back to raiding once he realizes his job doesn't own all of his time.
Anax was one of our key pickups on Ysondre after our first realm transfer. Be it healing or tanking, he has always performed at a high level. Throw in all the help he's provided with recruitment, and it was easy to see that he was one of our most valuable members. These days he spends his time raising the next generation of raiders - he probably has enough kids to start a guild of his own.
Tia joined the guild a decade ago as a friend and family member. She ended up leading our healing roster through multiple tiers and expansions, off-tanked the occasional fight, became a DPS when it was needed, and handled the bulk of our recruiting for years. The guild likely wouldn't exist as it does today without her efforts or input. She was the only member of the guild to put in enough effort to warrant a special rank, not quite GM, but not far off. We suspect someday she'll be back to slaying internet dragons with us again in the future.
Diazo (a.k.a. Illumination) is one of those raiders. Female? Yes, but not what I meant. One of those raiders who has an army of alts and plays them all well. She has main changed and role swapped to help the guild more times than we can remember. You'll find her online casually when content is fresh.
Nwpi, or Ipwn, is one of those rare breeds of players who can play multiple specs and classes at a high level. His ability to be our flex tank for 3 tank encounters combined with assisting with consumables somehow kept him in the guild for years despite being Canadian. Real-life pulled him from our raid roster, and he's enjoying his time with his new wife.
Our resident resto druid for over 6 years. Maea joined the guild and has always been an consistent healing force for our team. She's seen countless change and weathered the storm with us along the way. While she's currrently taking a step back to focus on her family, we expect to see her again one day in the future.
Formerly of the guild Limit, Preheet joined our humble, trash, world-500-something guild to bless us with his raiding knowledge. Wait that's not right. Sometimes we get confused about this too. Our Preheet, the one true Preheet, joined us in 2017. He's been one of the rare great Mages to join our ranks over the years. He streams, makes youtube content, holds down a full-time job, and does it all despite a crippling birth defect of being French Canadian. These days he's taking a break from playing WoW, but you can find him behind the scenes managing content and producing the race to world first with Echo.
Kerpz is a derpz. When he's not putting his foot in his mouth, you could find him leading our healers and handling the bulk of the recruiting. He's was a great pick up for us and our healing has been rock solid since he stepped into the healing lead role. Lately, the pull of classic was too strong for him, you can find him online 24/7 working on speed runs with his guild SpaceForce.
Not a lot is known about this mysterious Death Knight's origin. He wandered into our guild in 2017, proved he could output insane dps, rarely die, helps with strategies, multi-specs, multi-classes, stocks the bank with consumables and like Bummy carries our team through M+ content - all while not complaining. It's a "fluke" we ever found such a player. Flookk decided to step away from the game with the launch of Dragonflight, but we hope he'll be back one day in the future.
