Attachment(s) Phinigel Update 2


Darkwind has momentum

Shocking as it may seem to some on Phinny but Darkwind has truly arrived on the server. After smashing Vulak we focused as a guild to gear up for Luclin as fast as we could. To that end we steam rolled all of the remaining content left to us in instances. We now only have Tunare left in our way.

The guild is thriving. We don't zerg or use mage exploits but then again we don't really need to either, I mean, we do have some of the best set of players on the server, and if history has ever taught us anything; it's that Darkwind always rises to the top, just check our previous endeavours into EverQuest, we have the luxury of having a history ;).

Just to say we had done it, we went and cleared Sleeper Tomb, Yelniak and Dain.
Imagine you can do entire Sleeper Tomb with 2 clerics. Something got hit hard with the nerf bat... :roll:

A few of the loots:

Darkwind is running around with a maximum of 55 players in raids. Sure we are small but even we manage some open world content despite other guilds constantly training us. Luckily we set up the 'Dream Team' Hybrid players who focus simply on keeping trains away from the raid. They know who they are and we thank them for their continued service.

If you want to join a guild with a huge exciting history on the AB server and an exciting one coming from Ragefire then look no further. Many of us have played together for over 15 years and if you want to be part of that, check out informations >>HERE<< !!

Finally the time came when we decided to have a go at Vulak.

We went into NToV Sunday to clear left side and Lady Nev, leaving Lord Feshlak and Lord Kreizann up for Monday's go at Vulak.
When we entered NToV Monday, Lord Feshlak had decided not to show up. But we still had Lord Kreizann to spawn Vulak.

After we sacrificed a few tanks to the loot god, it finally happened and Alex, who more or less made it from level 1-60 in one week, stole the yellow spam text!

Attachment(s) Ragefire - Vulak Charmed by Troll, More Dragons Die


Darkwind has been busy on Ragefire, killing dragons and upgrading our wardrobes. Luclin is coming so we have to get ready. Nuggella tried a bold new fashion statement while we were killing Vulak, but we thought the D-cups should stay on her chest so thankfully she put them back for the next target. Vulak seemed to like it though because she kept getting hit on.

Attachment(s) Ragefire - Sleeper's Tomb dies to 22 (ok, 23)


We went into ST for fun the other day with 22 and took down a golem and a bunch of dragons, culminating in this fight here. After a long grueling battle, and Jahva showing up to add his massive DPS at 50%, Darkwind succeeded! We have a great team of skilled players that do amazing things. Kudos Darkwind Team!

Phinigel Update
We decided it was time to do a small update on how Darkwind was doing on Phinigel.

In the middle of the summer, while alot was out enjoying the weather (catching Pokemon's), we decided to start Darkwind on Phinigel.
Madlez wrote:
39 years old playing pokemon, running around like an idiot. But i like it!

We laid down a goal. We wanted to get as much Hall of Testing Armour and Epics done before the 2. August. At this point we would start raiding bigger targets.

The first few weeks we managed to get alot of minor targets down for epics for both new people and the Ragefire people who joined us here on Phinigel.
Epic.jpg

Then we started farming Halls of Testing for Skyshrine Armour for those who still needed.

Thinking that would be enough for the people of Darkwind may have been a misunderstanding.
It did not take long before Epics was done and most was in their shiny SS armour seeking out bigger challenges.
At this point we started to look at Open world targets and Instanced Kael/WW/DN, especially ST-key droppers.

Managed to slay Vindi, King T and Statue with 28 members in Instance the first time and Vindi and Statue in Open world with 25 people.
This made us even more hungry for harder targets and we moved on to ToV bosses. Where we slayed Dozekar for the first time on Phinigel Sunday 31st of July.

The first of August was a happy surprice. Alot returned from holidays and Pokamon. For the first time this summer we had what looked like a decent raidforce.
This called for a challenge! We started with Klandicar Open World to get yet another ST-key.
Then we moved to EJ to get a Green Scale for our warrior (Who now has epic, Grats Nedtur).
And finally we decided there was time to test out North Temple of Veeshan. This ment the death of Ikatiar the Venom, Eashen of the Sky and finally Aaryonar!

The Darkwind Challange


Do you have what it takes? Here in Darkwind Velious has been on farm mode for a long time. We rarely visit Kunark or anywhere outside of Velious bar Fear.

So we decided to change it up a bit. We wanted to give our members something fun to do as a team in their spare time that showcases how good they can be. So we are in the process of setting up Challanges for everyone.

All guilds/servers are welcome to take part in this and lets see if you really are as good as you say you are?

Team Gnomemafia did:

Sev with less than 2 groups. Well its been done with 11. Can it be done with less? Lets find out! More will be posted about the challenges we are throwing out to players. Stay tuned!!

Waking the Sleeper

Avatar of War


Sunday 17/04/16 3pm CET.



Simply put we needed 213 bodies to do this. Amazing turnout from everyone. Flawless execution despite having to split the raids and TS channels and so on, it worked exactly how we planned. Haters can do what they want but I am extremely proud to have been part of this. Getting a kill before anyone else is huge. Killing a mob that we couldn't budge his hp with around 160 toons before shows how much effort was required to do the dps. Aside from that yes, AoW is easy as a plain tank and spank mob when your clerics and warriors are exceptional.

If you play on a boxing progression server and you want a challenge and to see things first Darkwind is simply your only option. Come join a team that evolves and grows under pressure and gets the job done together.

We have been doing this as a guild since Velious was originally launched December 2000, Racking up Server firsts and Server wide firsts. We stand the test of time, we don't give up. What have you got?

Sleepers Tomb


Darkwind in ST

We have always had a strong history in Sleepers Tomb as you can see below from us raiding on AB:


Darkwind got hands on enough keys for the most unique progress Event / Zone in Everquest at all: Sleeper�s Tomb.
The unique part of this zone is that you can do the final event only 1 Time at all on every server (unless a bug comes up like it did happen on AB)
Once you kill all 4 Warder Dragons at same time, the Sleeper comes free and doing his killing spree around trough Norrath.
As far I know Darkwind was the only guild worldwide that did awaken the Sleeper 3 (!) times.

Image

For Antonious Bayle there was some kind of an agreement among the 3 Guilds, who was able to release the Sleeper, so that every guild would have its Chance to farm some loot.
Unfortunately this agreement was broken by 1 guild and so Darkwind decided to release the Sleeper.


Fast forward to now

The Progenitor
Master of the Guard
The Final Arbiter
Hraashna the Warder
Nanzata the Warder
Tukaarak the Warder
Ventani the Warder


All Dead

We are the only guild killing in ST. Our aim is simple. We will farm enough droppable for Darkwind members and store items for new members as and when they come. However the loot is better once the Sleeper has been awoken. So..... Currently our plan is to wake Sleeper in about 1 months time. That being said if any other guild on the server brings more than 3-4 groups of players into the zone we will wake him early.

If you want to see:

http://wiki.project1999.com/Shroud_of_Longevity
http://wiki.project1999.com/Mask_of_Tinkering
http://wiki.project1999.com/Sceptre_of_Destruction


Get a Darkwind tag and turn upto raids!

We will schedule the event of waking him so all Darkwind members can be on to see it and participate.

If you are not in Darkwind and want to be part of this momentous occasion please apply at eqapp.php or contact an officer so we can find a way to get you in!

All classes are open and you can be part of Darkwind if you have a desire to play at a high level and the ability to play 2+ hours for long fights!

Tunare Amazing


. :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

So Tunare, we called our first raid on the Plane of Growth last Friday. Everyone was queuing up to have a chance at the girl. Whether your a tits or ass guy she had everything you wanted [personally I prefer beautiful bottoms]
Image

Well by everyone sadly that excluded Incarnate Tonin and Melodii who have to settle for a picture like this to explain just how willing your God was to put out for the DW crew. Thanks guys for letting us have a turn on her.
Image
Anyway back to the topic. We engaged her thinking and assume she would be like a girl on prom but she was wise to our ideas. Our cleric number of 5 proved to be shit low so we started going oom, we were not prepared for her to have same dps output as AoW. In case you don't know much about this encounter bar using her rather long legs to kick you away after she is done with you she also hits like something from Geordie shore[see below].
Image

Right so 5 clerics and us being oom at 80% with 130 in the zone. Sweet? [yes we go dps heavy on our fights due to regen] Well we figured throw dwarfs at her to stall. She couldn't deal with the 3 legged dwarfs we have of Birkoff, Brolof and Golias. That bitch was choking hard as we ran more and more clerics adding them into our ch chain. Swiftly we recovered and despite losing a lot of tanks we managed to get her down.

Funnily enough being better prepared for a second go and her being more willing to our advances she lay down a second time to Darkwind with a single death.

Most enjoyable loot and best fight we have done this expansion. Thanks guys for doing so well!

Honestly some beautiful stuff loot.

We have more updates but I felt this one deserved something special. Come and join the fun and actually kill challenging encounters
