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.

Here's to an heroic end of the year!

I'll admit, I've totally been slacking on our heroic progression posts this time around. The first time you kill a boss it's exciting, but by the time you get to killing them on heroic....maybe not so much. BUT, watching us progress through heroic fights has been awesome! We go from a bunch of sloppy joes to...well, not-so-sloppy joes. Quite often our kills are "messy, but effective". I don't care. I'll take it, because the team excitement at the end of those messy kills is what makes it fun and brings us back for more.

So, as we move through Winter Veil and inch ever closer to Nighthold, we still have our sights set on clearing Heroic Emerald Nightmare (only 2 more to go), and roflstomping Trial of Valor. Can we do it? Time will tell. Merry Resetmas everyone!

Things we learned: Lag sacrifices everything and now I need to reroll pally. ;)


The Nightmare has been purged - normal Xavius DOWN!

This week in raiding saw the Troublemakers cleared normal Emerald Nightmare up through Cenarius on our first night (a new team best). We even finished a little early with the goal of spending night two tackling the devious Xavius.

I had to miss raid on Monday night but when I got to the office, there was a lovely postcard waiting for me...

The team did it! So proud of you guys. I hope you enjoyed your stay, captured some battle pets and I will see you all next week for some more awesome Troublemakers raiding action.

Things we learned: Bear is a moron tank (Ok, that came later but it's the best I've got since I wasn't there. :P)

Dragons go night night & other raiding stories

Another awesome week in Legion raiding down!

Day 1 saw us Troublemakers make a pretty clean sweep of the first 4 bosses (Nythendra, Ursoc, Elerethe and Illy Goth Goth). I do believe that is a new single night record for us.

Day 2 we had plans to spend the night learning how to defeat us some Nightmare Dragons. We had a shakey start but eventually we put them dragons down.

It was still early in the night so ya know, without any sort of plan we decided to poke our head in and check on our buddy Cenarius and see how he was doing. He didn't look so good, so after some quick on-the-fly thinking, our man with the plan gave us our direction. Once we had the final corruption under control, we were once again victorious!

But really I think people were only interested in one thing.

Mmmhmmm....yup! One thing.

With not much left time left in the night, we took a quick trip down the rabbit hole to see what Xavius had in store for us. Clearly he has been photoshopping his profile pic because he DID NOT look like his Darkheart Thicket projection. Dude! Lay off the nightmare snacks.

Another quick on-the-fly planning session and our best attempt saw phase two. With the night at an end, we bid Xavius adieu, but we will see him again soon...AND CRUSH HIM!

Things we learned: Tinder is not for raid bosses.

Shot through the heart and we're to blame...

I give raid journaling a bad name. Mhmmm....

But hey! We got Illy Goth Goth down!

There was much eye stabbing, dances with ichors, and tentacles everywhere (maybe not to hentai proportions but it was still nasty). Needless to say, we did the dance, got to the heart of the matter and put a stake through the Goth beast. I have a massive headache and feel punny so that's going to be it for today. Till next week gang.

Things we learned: Wipes at 0.6% are painful to watch.

We are a bunch of morbid people

I mean, just LOOK at us all standing over a corpse.

Pretty sure I saw someone poke it with a stick too. Oh wait, no I didn't, because I fell off the web bridge. I must have seen that in a movie once. Anyhoo, seems I missed the therapy sessions with an arachnophobic bear and showed up just in time to glide off a bridge and sacrifice myself so the team could get the kill...cuz ya know, it's what we demon hunters do, sacrifice everything. ;)

We did poke at this giant eye in a tree after that. He kept whispering things to me. I wonder if my teammates heard. Something about flesh being a gift....I dunno. *POKE, POKE, POKE* After a few good pokes, we went home. The Eye was still babbling away in the tree. Pretty sure it's cuckoo for cocoa puffs. Perhaps at next week's meetup we will put him out of his misery.

Things we learned: RAID eliminates bugs.

We're baaaaaaaack!

Ladies & Gentlemen,

The Troublemakers are BACK! Fully recharged with some new faces & classes, we stormed the Emerald Nightmare and claimed two new bosses on our very first foray last night. We one shot Nythendra and before the night was out, and after some intense bear on Bear action (yup, I went there), Ursoc fell to us as well. Not a bad way to ring in the new expac. Tonight we take on Elerethe Renferal, if that goes the EVIL TREE!

Stay tuned for more details...
