First Kill of Nefarian!

Last Updated on Tuesday, 1 March 2011 02:43 Written by Broliant Sunday, 5 November 2006 11:30

The fifth of November is famous in the UK as the day Guy Fawkes attempted to blow up the British Parliament but was captured before he could succeed. Today, people across Britain celebrate that non-event with outdoor parties, fireworks and huge bonfires.

In contrast, people all across Europe and beyond will in future be celebrating another reason to “remember, remember the fifth of November” as the members of Converge overcame all adversity to thoroughly and confidently kill Nefarian, the ultimate boss of Blackwing Lair on this night. Following an earlier success in the wilds of Ashenvale when Converge achieved its first outdoor boss kill of Taerar, this event was a joy to be a part of.

The moment you’ve all been waiting for:

First Kill of Nefarian!

The initial attempt failed shortly after the transition from phase one to phase two but the reason for the failure was fairly clear and easy to remedy. After sitting down for the prescribed re-spawn time, the second attempt was an example of controlled, orderly execution of the strategy selected and the fight went from beginning to end with hardly any unforeseen or unexpected drama. Each class call was handled well, all classes performed brilliantly and the end result was an extreme amount of audio distortion on the raid’s Ventrilo channel. Happy? You bet we were!

We can never get tired of saying this: Absolutely amazing play everyone and our utmost thanks to you all for being a part of this adventure with us. From the officers of Converge, we thank you sincerely and completely.

Next week on Converge-TV: “The Temple of Ahn’Qiraj”.

First Kill of Chromaggus!

Last Updated on Tuesday, 1 March 2011 01:47 Written by Broliant Monday, 16 October 2006 11:30

Anyone who’s ever heard the expression that dogs “are a man’s best friend” clearly hadn’t met this particular little puppy. After clearing the three mobs that guard his gate, we reviewed tactics and set about having a “practice” attempt at him. Thus, no sands or pots of note were used. Regardless, we got him down to a very respectable 25% and as we ressed and buffed for a “proper” second attempt, our internal monologue was collectively chanting “oh, it’s on!”

True to our belief, we killed him calmly and smoothly with excellent healing, great de-cursing, heroic tanking (props to the time-lapse masters!) and of course the usual demonic dps.

Our moment of triumph was preserved and congratulations once again to our entire team of raiders.

Lord Victor Nefarius awaits our challenge…

A short walk from the beaten corpse of Chromie and we were enjoying the spectacular vista of the Burning Steppes from the balcony where we suddenly noticed Lord Victor Nefarius was sitting on his throne, waiting for us to challenge him. Well, you know we can’t resist a challenge…

Nefarius Awaits...

Nefarius Awaits...

And after one failed attempt to kill his summoned guards, we at least felt a quick photo to end the day nicely was in order.

One quick wipe freed the throne...

First Kill of Ebonroc and Flamegor!

Last Updated on Tuesday, 1 March 2011 01:28 Written by Broliant Sunday, 15 October 2006 11:30

Converge entered BWL having already killed Razorgore, Vaelestraz and the Broodlord on a prior visit. Some slight chaos on the laboratory packs before Firemaw pushed us to learn the tactics of these groups and we did. Then firemaw went down too.

After clearing the remaining lab-packs between Firemaw and Ebonroc it was new boss time. Somehow, before the tanking strategy had been fully explained, someone ninja pulled the spicy-breathed one and we all started the fight a little hurried.

Regardless, this was probably the easiest boss fight we’ve had so far in BWL and he went down smoothly with only one notable heal occuring. The screenshot below captures the moment of our success.

Following the successful Ebonroc first-kill, we immediately attempted Flamegor. Our first attempt was tricky and failed but inevitably, a nice re-adjustment later and we got him down cleanly without a single casualty.

Continued congratulations to you all. As always, it was a pleasure raiding with our members and we’re again proud of the remarkable attitude and skill of our members. Well done all!

First Kill of The Broodlord and Firemaw!

The members of Converge ventured bravely into the Blackwing Lair again. After fighting our way through the supression room and wiping once on the Broodlord, we defeated the Broodlord and tore his head off his shoulders.

Shortly after we continued our way through the gate and started killing goblins and warlocks. Now it was time for Firemaw. He was a tricky opponent, but nothing we couldn’t handle! On the fourth try he crashed to the ground and stayed down.

Congratulations on another successful raid guys! Keep it up and we will be facing Neffy in no time.

First Kill of Razorgore and Vaelestraz!

As if beating Razorgore on our first visit to BWL was not enough, the raid team then progressed to Vaelestraz and began the process of learning how to play through this encounter. It’s hard. Even Naxx guilds are known to have problems with Vael from time to time. We tried, we kept trying, we went past the official raid end time and no-one was prepared to leave. On our fifth attempt, we overcame the challenge and Vael fell.

As with Ragnaros the night before, this was an unbelievable night for Converge and all we can say quite simply to all our members and initiates is “Congratulations.”

Our thanks to you all. Each and every one of you!
