C'Thun is dead! It has been a busy few weeks in World of Warcraft Classic, and Cyrus have come out strong with some impressive achievements. We were successful in our push for Scarab Lord, managed to get some very satisfying open world PvP in, and now we have killed the 'final boss' in the new 40-player raid, AQ40! Good times!
Scarab Lord - one of the most exclusive and epic quest chains in the history of WoW Classic. Why, how could we resist?! The key to being successful in something that requires this much teamwork and selfless sacrifice is to play with honour, respect and stick to the spirit of not only the game, but gaming itself. Congratulations Cyrus!
This week our Paladin Class Leader Laserfun achieved PvP Rank 14, the highest in Classic WoW! Following an intense, relentless grind we ask him a few questions about his journey through the ranks, what inspired him to do it, and how he feels looking back. Congratulations Grand Marshal Laserfun - you did it, you actually did it!
Zul'Gurub was released at midnight on 16th April, and because there was an instance reset scheduled just a few hours later, this gave rise to an additional, unauthorised, unscheduled, disorganised raid run by a rabble of wannabe coup usurpers staging their own very-non-Cyrus Cyrus raid group to sneak an extra reset it. Traitors!
It finally happened! After more than 6 months of killing Garr, he actually did what Baron Geddon had done during our very first raid and dropped the Bindings of the Windseeker. After a quick tussle with Prince Thunderaan, Thunderfury was finally ours! Congratulations Dawarrior - although, you could have been a little more excited!
Cyrus have cleared Blackwing Lair (8/8 bosses) in the first week of release. It was touch and go for a little while as the WoW servers decided to throw a wobbly, but we stuck it out and had an excellent raid on Sunday night to complete the job. Great preparation, great leadership, really lousy loot - isn't it always the way!
