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.

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.


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


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: 

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

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...

Things we learned: Group hugs save lives

There is no Xhul...only Troublemakers!

That's right!

The holidays are behind us and the Troublemakers returned to the ring VICTORIOUS this week with a brand new boss kill...

That leaves only Manny and Archi on the table for tonight. I can't wait to see how we do.

*shakes Magic 8 ball*

Hopefully there will be more news later. *fingers crossed*

Things we learned: Keep calm and KILL THAT IMP!

Tyrants deserve to be crushed (scrapes Velhari off the floor)


My name is Aurane and it's been almost 2 months since my last boss kill. I mean, it's been going ok and all. My teammates are great and SUUUUPER supportive but there are still those days were you just want to GET IN THERE and kick some butt and it's not happening, ya know? Those are the rough days to get through, but you just have to hang in there and know that there will be that light at the end of the tunnel. And when you finally emerge into that light, it feels a little something like this...



We finally made it! We finally made it past that dreaded phase 2 and it feels sooo good! We even took a few pot shots at our upcoming target Xhul'horac. With little to no planning we got him under 20% TWICE...not long now. Later tonight maybe? Stay tuned for more details...

Once final thing before we go today. I'd like to nominate the following song for Ix's "Troublemakers Awesome Mix vol. 1".
