Cause And Effect: An Introduction

Grarl of <Cause And Effect>

<Cause And Effect> is a friendly World Of Warcraft raiding guild, part of the Horde faction on the European server Shattered Halls.

We formed early on during the lifetime of the server, in the first months following the release of the expansion The Burning Crusade.

At this time we participate solely in ten-player raiding, and operate two raid-teams. Our progression-oriented team is currently working on heroic-mode T13 whilst occasionally returning to T12 to work on completing the meta-achievement. Our more-relaxed team is currently working on T12 and planning to start T13 soon.

Dragon Soul: Heroic Morchok defeated

Dragon Soul

13th January 2012: Heroic-mode Dragon Soul gets underway, with Morchok and Korchrom ground to dust.

Last week, the last of our regular progression-team raiders picked up the normal-mode Madness of Deathwing kills and thus gained their 'Detroyer's End' titles. With that out of the way, this week we felt free to start working on our first heroic-mode.

The consensus out there on the internet is that Morchok really isn't very challenging on heroic, and indeed he fell pretty quickly after we sorted out some minor issues. Amusingly, we managed to get a slightly buggy kill whereby Morchok died, we gained the achievement, everybody cheered, and then looked on in surprise as we realised that Korchrom hadn't despawned and was busy killing people! Not the cleanest of kills then, but a kill's a kill.

Congratulations to Bovril, Canthus, Davegotsu, Eloradanan, Falcon, Glädje, Huagh, Jintsu, Moomann, & Skystalker for the kill.

Dragon Soul: Madness of Deathwing defeated

Dragon Soul

13th December 2011: The Destroyer is destroyed - Tier 13 cleared!

We defeated Spine of Deathwing for the first time on Sunday night, and had enough time to fit in our first few attempts on Madness of Deathwing. Having learned a lot from those few attempts, we came back in on Tuesday for a full night of Madness.

It took a couple of hours and we were coming perilously close to running out of time, but we kept our focus up and Deathwing died with about half an hour to spare before we would have had to call it until next week. It isn't a terribly difficult fight; most of the difficulty is in putting out enough DPS, handling the unslowed Elementium Bolt on the fourth platform, and making sure the Elementium Terrors don't make mincement out of your tanks during the final phase. The first three platforms however really shouldn't present much difficulty provided you have a good idea of what needs to be done.

Congratulations to Bovril, Canthus, Davegotsu, Eloradanan, Falcon, Glädje, Moomann, Sererinn, Skystalker, & Wetpatch for the first of many kills.


Recruitment is currently CLOSED.
