A real God-send for our casual crew (and Poke'mon Go players alike) Mobile EQ has lead to a major spike in guild turn-out! If you haven't yet invested in this incredible technology, we highly recommend you do so! You'll get to play on the go and are guaranteed to be the envy of every kid on the block.
(Perhaps if Kaizo had went this route instead of buying some sort of IKEA spaceship desk he lacks the skills to assemble we would have had our leader this weekend...)
Avatard of War
As fun as chasing your tail around NToV can be, we decided it was time to work on adding more kills to our board. It's amazing to think how short a time ago it was that Vindy and King Tormax presented a real challenge for us. We watched as they, and their friends, melted into a soupy pile of loot. Yum!
With our Ancient Songfist in place, we puckered our butts and brought in the Avatar. Slow and steady wins the raids they say, but in our case it got us to 18%. We recovered gracefully though and were able to nab him back before his despawn! Although reinvigorated, we all kind of expected some diminishing returns and we simply lost the war of attrition around 60%. Damn you Avatar! Next week....

Kinda Sticky and Super Ikky
In the depths of the old city that lies beyond the dense jungles of Kunark reigns a traitor of The Scale. A Dragon so powerful he laid waste to a great Iksar Empire. A Dragon so great, we still hadn't checked him off our PhinnyKills...

Monday's Raid had to be cancelled because, you know, shotguns and all that. The DDoS has been crippling the game for a few days now. We're hoping things are stable tonight for HoT, but we'll see. Although the raid was cancelled, we still found some Mischief...
Remember to update your Epic progress on the forums in your class section! This will let your class leaders know what part you're on so we can schedule accordingly. You can also request Raid targets (including specific Epic fights) over in the Raids forum here!
Thanks for capturing us perfectly. Talk about it on the forums.
We've officially made the swap over to Discord from Ventrillo. It offers a ton more features and we're assisting on their BETA test which allows us to drive the development and get grandfathered into an awesome position with our comms provider. If you haven't download the application (it runs on damn near anything) and join us!
Mains, Raids, DKP, and You! - A Primer
Are you hip to the most up-to-date TMO DKP Policies? Make sure you've read the document recently.
Leveling With the Raid
To maintain our awesome trajectory, we've adjusted raid levels. Here's the basics:
- Classic Content (Retro Raid! Planes, Naggy, Vox, etc..) - 46+
- Expansion Content - 55+
In order to ease the pain of this transition we've been increasing the level slightly each week. Here's the schedule:
- 6/07 - 6/13 - 53+
- 6/14 - 6/20 - 54+
- 6/21+ - 55+
Not there yet? Stop your bitching and go level up!

Epic as Shit
We just keep getting more epic, and one way we do that is... more epics. Check these out! Some serious guild firsts! Did I miss your recent epic'ing? Let me know!
Arkonn with that guild first Paladin Epic!
Gugarok with guild first Shadowknight Epic!
May may have had been our best month yet, maybe?
It's true! The stars aligned for TMO and saw some awesome timing and some awesome progress create a total eclipse of awesomness that blew our butts wide open.
- Early Velious? Lawl Check!
- Applications for days? Indeed!
- Member Character Diversification? Filling much needed roles? I concur good sir!
- Rank and Role Adjustments? Promotions? Yeeh boi!
- Many, many, many Guild Firsts? Ya betcha!
- Memorial Day Weekend Bonus EXP and Event? OMG! I love it!
But why use words when numbers tell the story and are a lot less wordy?
Grats on Ding! Now Update Your Thing!
Since we did have so many members make awesome gains in levels (and some changed Race; and even Gender?!?!), I wanted to remind everyone that you should consider updating your character information for the DKP system. There is a Tutorial on the forums.
KO in KD
Thursday's raid had us testing the waters and learning what we need to bring in the future to bring down the bigs guys of Kael. It was all good experience as we attempted a few different methods of opening the WhoopAss can. One thing we did know though, is more levels, more tanks and more clerics were certainly needed. Now that those factors have improved greatly, we're looking forward to our next attempts and finally getting some sweet giant loots.
Oh, did I mention we got some serious upgrades while we were at it? Hotballs!

Your Just a Little Bit Special Event!
Our glorious, and newly Ogre-izzed leader, Kaizo, declared we should all make the most of the bonus experience pumping out the veins of America's enemies, and get down to business. Groups made their ways to all 7 corners of Norrath! Much leveling was had all weekend and during this very Special Event.
Thanks to all our active and vet military for keeping America's EQ hosting servers safe and operational!
Testing the Halls
We did Halls of Testing and it's not quite super boring yet! I know it's coming soon...
I'll drop them sweet phats here when they're hot off the presses. Stay frosty!
Maths is Hard
In typical Daybreak Fashion, we were tickled to discover that Wednesday, May 18th's serverwide announcement that Velious had be breached was not hijynx, but rather a pretty massive fuck up. Having only hours earlier released the newest Patch and excitedly announcing Velious would be arriving at 4PM EST on Wednesday, May 25th, DBG durped the big one and out slipped EverQuest's 2nd expansion exactly one week early.
At first we weren't sure what to do. We all expected a roll back. And, as RNG always goes, after camping it for several hours, the Idol of the Underking finally dropped for Meeseeks. To our surprise however, it took so long for an official response to the issue that too much damage would have been done and we all received an extra week of Velious. This expansion was already planned for 4 months (instead of the typical 3) and thus we expect Shadows of Luclin to drop 9/28 (or may be 9/21 if they still haven't learned how to write a procedure properly).
Caught off guard? Giant Bomb's Velious overview gives a great big picture look here.
Into the Icy Depths
We were excited to find that Kael was quite doable for us and scheduled our Thursday raid for Kael to test the waters. On Monday we took the class for a field trip out to Velketor's Labryinth to crawl the zone showing members that may never have been, or have forgotten the zone. We had a lot of fun getting wasted and slipping around. We managed to down Lord Bob, but found Velketor a bit too hefty a target for us quite yet. After Velketor we headed over to Karnor's Castle and brought Venril Sathir down to his knees for our first

times. We then wrapped our Monday with a bit of Fear. Good times.
A Song of Fire and Ice
Tuesday we gave Naggy the bidness and made a mad dash for the Temple of Veeshan and the Halls of Testing! We were happy to find it quite accessible including named mobs and got some serious loot!

These pieces allow you to make awesome armor that you pick up in Skyshrine using the item from Halls of Testing and 3 specific gems with Ally faction. Get the faction in Kael, get the pieces in Halls of Testing (Temple of Veeshan's East Wing), get the gems in Velious zones such as Cobalt Scar, Velk's and Siren's Grotto, and turn them in in Skyshrine.
A full guide of all the Velious Armor is on the site here.
Tonight 5/26's Thursday Raid begins at 8pm EST - We will be back Kael and will be attempting Derakor the Vindicator - Be there! Get Thurgadin Armor, Thurg and CoV faction and a Vindy BP?!?!?
Patching and Pet Pulling
WHAT?!?!?! Patch?!? Still an hour and a half of downtime. What a bummer. Oh, what's this? Patch notes.. Hmmm... Let's see... boring, live, non-progression; oh. Interesting:
- The Presence of the Mighty aura effect will no longer aggro pets, break invisibility, or break feign death.
Well how about that!
Best part of this patch though; Gargoyles!
Man, I loved that cartoon.
That's right! For you Classic Fans, we got our classic ass gargoyles back! Sweet biscuit.
- Gargoyles across Norrath, celebrate by flapping your granite wings! In classic zones, Gargoyles have reverted to their classic appearance.

Monday night we had some extra time and a great turn out so we decided to get a guage on Kunark. Talendor was to be our thermostat. Regretabbly, with 1 Warrior and 1 60 Cleric, we just didn't have what it takes to bring him down. The good news is, we wrapped early on Tuesday so all you scrubs can go get 60! Do it.
Winter is Coming!
Aren't I clever? Probably the first one ever to take that thing from the Game of Thrones thing and apply it to the Velious thing. See? It's hilarious.
Although you'd expect it to creep with the glacial speed of an ice continent Velious is now almost exactly one week away!
