The Troublemakers

Bringing a Metric Carp Ton of fun to Sunday & Monday nights

We are a casual Alliance raid team on the Aerie Peak server and part of the Convert to Raid guild. We are looking to make progression in normal and heroic raids for World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth.

The Case of the Missing Bodies - 6/8 Normal Eternal Palace

Day one -

QUEEN AZSHARA: Welcome to my palace. Now dance raid monkeys! Amuse me or I will end you.

BOSS MAN SHAMADIN: Ok everyone, welcome back to raiding. We have some old faces returning and some new * mumbles * converted faces again. Each of you should have a raid strat packet. I hope you have looked it over and…

AURANE: Um okay, she’s certainly full of herself. End me…pshhh. Azerite explosions didn’t ‘end’ me”.

BMS: Aurane, are you paying attention?

AURANE: Absolutely!

BMS: Ok then, you know what to do. Let’s get in there and wreck face!

< INSERT RAID TEAM EXCITEMENT >

Fast forward to Commander Sivara = REKT!
”Don’t cross the streams!”
”You got your poison in my frost! You got your frost in my poison. Two awful tastes that DO NOT go great together.”
”Ok, group up everyone for a kill photo”
< body disappears >
”What the?”

Fast forward to Blackwater Behemoth = WREKT!
”Can we do a kill a photo here?”
”Oh look bubbles!”
”I want to pet the jellyfish.”
”OMG! Sea horse rides.”
”Nevermind the photo, I guess.”

Fast forward to Radiance of Azshara = REKTED TOO! Electric Boogaloo
”ARCNADOS! MOVE!”
”I’m afraid of the dark, hold me!”
”That dude has been working out since Legion.”
”What is this crystal? No body? Lame.”

Fast forward to Lady Ashvane = WRECKTIFIED! (Is that copyright infringement?)
”Uh, she DID NOT age well…yikes.”
”RUNE BUDDIES FOR LIFE!”
”Guys, this is nuts! I thought we were supposed to save the coral?”
”Ok, we have a body, group up for a photo”
< body disappears >
”SERIOUSLY!?!?”

Fast forward to Orgozoa = SO SO REKT!
< Dances like a raid monkey >
”Ew, wth is incubation fluid? GROSS!”
”Where did he go? AFTER HIM!”
”IT’S A TRAP!”
”Get the hulk!”
”Ok, NOW we’ll get a kill photo.”

“OH COME ON!”

Day two -

Fast forward to The Queen’s Court
”What are you doing?”
”Raid lead said pee in the back.”
”He meant Pashmar you idiot. Gross!”
”Oops!”


Time warp to the kill
”KILL SHOT, everyone get in.”
< body disappears…again >
”Ok, this is getting ridiculous. I give up.”

Will our heroes solve the case of the missing bodies? Are they merely so excited to loot new bosses that the bodies disappear almost instantly? Tune in next week for our shocking conclusion…maybe.

Adventure awaits!

Boss Man Paladin sat alone in his office. It had been a tiring, but reasonably successful first week in the Nazmir jungle. After locating the ancient Titan facility known as Uldir, the new team had done a good job getting in there and cleaning the place up a bit. There was still a lot to do, but they were really starting to come together. His thoughts were interrupted by a firm and steady knock on the door. He rose from his desk, went to the door, and opened it.

POSTAL WORGEN: Mail delivery for you sir. Sorry for the delay, mail routes have been all kinds of squirrely since we moved operations from Dalaran to Boralus. We are still trying to catch up.

The worgen handed him a rather large stack of mail with a postcard on top. Boss Man Paladin knew immediately who it was from.

He flipped over the card and read;

Hey Boss Man,
I made it to Tanaris! The new crew is already here and we are ready to get production under way PRONTO! It’s hotter than Moonguard here during the day, but the evenings are nice. Give my love to the gang.
— Aurane

Underneath the postcard was another letter, also from Aurane, only this one was severely damaged. He opened it and found a hastily scrawled note.

I hope you get this because HOLY CRAP! Plans changed overnight here in Tanaris. We were all set for some location shooting when the ground started going all rumble bumble on us. Word from Silithus was that Magni needed help so pretty much the entirety of Gadgetzan has been conscripted into his service. Our film project is on hold and we are moving out. No idea what’s going on over there yet. I’ll try and report back when I know more.
— Aurane

POSTAL WORGEN: I know it’s been awhile because of the postal delays, but I’ve got some friends down in Silithus I can get word to now that the portals are open. Want me to see if there is any word on your friend?

Boss Man Paladin had completely forgotten the worgen was still there and was mildly startled by the question.

BOSS MAN PALADIN: I’m sure she’s fine. She’s a resourceful gnome.

Boss Man Paladin quickly scribbled a note of his own down on a card and handed it to the Postal Worgen to deliver to Aurane. It simply read…

Four new big bads down.
You’re still short.

Troublemakers invade the Nighthold - hilarity ensues

BEHOLD the iris opens!

...oh wait, wrong raid. 

We must take back the Nightwell!

The Nighthold! Shiny and new! Come aboard! We're expecting you.../dance. *ahem* Gais? Why do we always have to come in through the back door? Why are we never invited? It's always go around to the back door or go through the sewers. I'm starting to think these bosses don't really want us here.

TOO BAD!

*SMACK, SMACK, SMACK* Ooof! *Sounds of fighting* HAVE AT THEE!

BOOM!

Our first foray into the Nighthold saw us down 5 out of 10 bosses on normal. HALFWAY! There were some bumps and scrapes along the way, but I'd say that is some awesome progress for brand new content and we are only going to get better and faster as we get more and more used to the fights. Nice job team!

As a bit of side note, your friendly neighborhood gnome healer is back in the rotation for a roster switch up and we're still looking for DPS slots. Go here if you are interested: http://guild.converttoraid.com/teams/the+troublemakers 

Things we learned (or rather, we questioned): When did Blizzard get into hentai?
