    Heroic Garrosh is dead. It was the US 5th/World 19th kill and our best performance of the tier aside from week one.

    Siege of Orgrimmar was an interesting instance. On day one, with no heroic PTR experience, we killed six heroic bosses. By the end of the week, only four bosses remained. Siegecrafter proved to be the first big roadblock of the instance. A single death to matter purification beam ended an otherwise good attempt. When we killed it we were significantly behind our competition. Paragons went slightly better, even though some raiders loved to feed the hungry kunchongs.

    In spite of multiple setbacks, like losing a few core players: our only shadow priest and dps warrior, we had a chance to finish strong on Garrosh. After 178 wipes, we killed the Warchief on the last attempt of the night, after a 2% wipe earlier in the evening. We almost raided more than 25 hours this week, which would have been a sin.

    I want to give a shout out to everyone who helped us throughout this instance, but were not in on the final kill, especially the healing core who had to endure multiple 4-heal bosses on the bench. We look forward to the new expansion and the exciting new challenges Blizzard has planned.

    We are also recruiting all exceptional players, please put in an app! ...

    Around two years ago Vigil was the 4th US guild to kill Heroic Ragnaros. For many, including the officers, that was the end of an illustrious raiding career. A shell of the former guild cleared Dragon Soul, but the spark was lost. By the time MoP came out, the shell was shattered. From the shards a new Vigil was born. The roster had new names, and the officers were fresh and ready for the challenges ahead. Vigil climbed back into the progression race one step at a time. Two top guilds have come to Mal’Ganis to steal our thunder, and have faltered. With excellent play this week, after a 3% Lei Shen wipe late Monday night, we were the 5th US guild to complete Throne of Thunder, and 18th in the world. I would like to thank the veterans, five players remain from our Firelands roster, and our new raiders for returning Vigil to the forefront of the US and world raiding scene.

    Throne of Thunder was a great tier of content, with many memorable mid bosses such as Council, Durumu, and Animus. Lei Shen was a truly magnificent end boss, taking us 3 weeks and 292 attempts to complete. Each phase required perfect execution and progression was steady as we learn something new every single pull, with extremely tight positioning, movement, and cool down management throughout the fight, and a curveball of static shock RNG in phase 3. As for Ra-den, we killed this boss in 22 attempts, too bad we will never see the anima phase.

    Throughout this tier, we never raided more than 5 days a week, had minimum PTR experience, killed every single progression boss inside our advertised raid schedule, used one alt on two separate progression encounters, and most importantly, had a ton of fun along the way. The world first race has devolved into a race of ever higher raid hours and ever expanding roster of alts and bench players. But for everyone else, there is still an enjoyable game left, where high rankings can still be achieved with limited time and players. We look forward to the next tier where we hope to continue improve our rankings while maintaining our set raid schedule.

    If you are a great player who is looking for reasonable raiding hours, a fun environment, and good rankings, please put in an app!

    What is this? Another front page update? Seems like it. And guess what, this is one of many you will see in the next few days. Good job to everyone that was part of the kill and whoever was in during the progression. Moving on to Twins! ...
