9th of February 2016

I am sorry for the lack of EQ images in this update. Since we kill the same mobs so often there is not much to show apart from the endless loot stream to new members!

 

Anyway

 

It is hard to explain what has happened since the last update but I will try!

 

Firstly we absorbed members from Amicorum. Honestly can't speak highly enough of the players we have had from LJ. You be become amazing friends as well as creating the strongest raidforce I have played in for years. Sadly we also got some members who whined so much they became officers and as a result we formed a kickass USA raidforce to go along with everyone else meaning we can play 24/7 if we want. In all seriousness the guild is such a great place from you all joining so thank you. Even Edrix..

 

More recently our long term rivals Rosenguard have called it a day raiding on this server. You were an amazing bunch of people to play against and caused the guild a huge amount of stress and work because of your great attitude to the game. Many of you have now joined Darkwind and I cant wait to see how far we can take this.

 

Onto killing things? Well nothing new here. We kill 70% of all yellow text on the server and we earn our Trak Teeth unlike some 'cough' who buy old accounts to recover them. Some of our members have even gone out of their way to show how easy it is to get into VP they have made multiple keys!

 

index.php?app=core&module=attach&section

 

We finally have a release date on Velious and holy shit its being buffed Thank you Daybreak!!!!

If you ever wanted to have a challenge now is the time. I cant wait to raid new content and see us die because of hard encounters and not endless guild feuds.

 

While Kunark keeps spawning things to kill one of the best things has been the guild phone group and the pictures it spews out daily. While other guilds on the server may think we don't have enough fun I have to disagree. I must thank Varalan for sending this in:

 I personally feel we do not give Varalan as enough attention as he is clearly crying out for some so here you go

It is also wonderful trying to understand how Madlez goes through life when dressed like this

Another two of our members seem to have finally found love together after many years casual flirting and awkward moments. Grats Escape and Darked

Update

 

Since our first win on Trak what has been going on?

index.php?app=core&module=attach&section

That's right we did it. Finally killed this pos. We have had some great players come from LJ to join us and hopefully we will see more communities to play with and against moving to RF soon.

 

TL have left the server due to the prolonged period of Kunark. ​We wish them luck in their future challenges on Phinny. Smoelfen celebrated so hard at becoming the top guild on the server that his antics got out of control as per usual. Hopefully no one was with him when his accident happened.

index.php?app=core&module=attach&section

There is not much else to report really. Phinny server went live and we are stronger than ever and the new faces we have I hope will become lifelong friends to the guild. I guess the last bit of news is we destroyed VP and got some new pixles.

index.php?app=core&module=attach&section

I would whine about the shit our members had to endure from people using mq2 to stop us getting ground spawns. But hey, we did it and they either got banned or gave up in the face of huge determination spawning new picks and all sorts that we did.

 

Aside from doing VP w​e are clearing Trak every other day and generally dominating all bosses that are around in our hours and some that are not, we have mouths to feed and my god are we doing that, again thank you to all DW who keep turning up on this content. My respect to CE for how they play, a great group of people to 'play against'

 

Is this a fitting end to the current expansion and what DW has done recently and the effort put in by so many players? I personally think it is not since as always the loot sucks but it is nice for many people to see a zone they missed originally when they played. The achievement really was in getting here. We turned a guild of old friends back into a semi-hardcore team to be feared. I hope DBG wake up and we get Velious soon as our team likes new challenges and racing any euro guilds that may be around!

 

Huge Grats as well to two members! Meemers who has stopped playing here recently as of yesterday? Has had his first child and I think all of us here could not be happier for him. Also Crazydane on finishing Greenmist first on server. Ball ache of a quest, maybe not the same as having a kid but hey still pretty cool.

 

To all my friends and people who read this, thank you for a great few months on this server and I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year!

 

Recruitment is pretty closed at the moment bar a few 'special'? exceptions.

If you want to be part of our team and wait for a slot on our raid team we always will welcome you as a friend and a casual player.

BOOM

index.php?app=core&module=attach&section

 

After hours of contesting Trak against the other guilds on this server we finally got our first kill. The whole guild has worked really hard together for this and I am very proud of everyone who has sacrificed hours of time and suffered the awful experience of listening to Birkof talking to himself in /say

I won't say we are ready for Veeshan's Peak because well we have at least 40 more keys need or something silly like that. But for anyone in Darkwind who is awol atm its time to come back and see a new zone! 

We are recruiting DPS and Clerics. If you are not one of these classes but think you can be a good fit for us let an officer know.

Kunark has been a busy expansion for <Darkwind>

 

With the rotation agreement taken away we have changed as a team and worked hard together. As a result of this we have achieved a few new things since our last update.

 

All encounters are made more challenging by racing 60 players from other guilds. Some great fun to be had! If you like being the underdog keep reading and follow the instructions at the bottom!

This week has started well for Darkwind. We downed Vox for the first time. And by we, I clearly mean Meemers soloed her.

Dracolich also hit the floor, again with no sign of loot whatsoever. This was however made up for by our first FFA kill on Naggy.

Sadly all the loot was stolen by Smoelfen.

EverQuest Real Raiding
Written by Smackage
25th of August 2015

The last days have kept us very busy staying true to the Darkwind tag. The main news being this:

 

9vif84.jpg

 

We waited for him to pop in our rotation window and just as I fell asleep the phone rings. 20 minutes later our raid leaders

lead us to kill him on our first try ever. We got our first dragon loot which most of the guild thought was pretty poor.

 

2sb4jv5.jpg

 

We also payed Dracolich in PoFear a visit before he was downed.

 

24n0f4n.jpg

 

This felt like more of an achievement as we wiped to him a couple of times due to a certain monk training the raid and another for us to learn the encounter.

However, even tho this is a quite hard encouter, the loot was non excisting. Daybreak should maybe consider implementing some for this encounter.

 

In true Darkwind fashion we farmed a lot of hate minis and trash. Also, trash in the plane of fear has been on

the menu. A picture of hate is in order as many of the members have been living there the last two weeks.
