January 08 - Kara Run

We had a great run last time, and got up all the way to the Prince! Not bad for running it the first time as a guild. With that in mind, as I mentioned in another post, I hope to do Karazhan more consistently - usually around the 2nd week of the month. But January is kind of a funny month w/ New Years and people leaving for trips or what not for the holidays. So, I need your input on what will work.

Jan 8, 12
Jan 15, 19

Note: I'll be out of town from Dec 27-Jan3. Guild matters will be handled by Kyron/Kyriel.

Kara part deux

Gratz to everyone who ran Kara on Tuesday night (Dec. 11th). We had a very successful run, cleared all the way up to and including Curator with only one wipe, I think, and the typical hiccups so we know we can do half of Kara on a regular basis, me think.

We will be trying to hit up the rest of Kara on Saturday so please sign up to let us know if you can make it. The plan would be to hit up at a minimum Illhoof, Shade, Chess Event, and Prince. If we have time, we can visit Netherspite and I will try to get my book before Saturday so we can summon Nightbane for those who have never seen this fight. (Kinzlayer has just been very lazy about finishing the quest in order to summon Nightbane.)

For those who have not done the fights we will see on Saturday, you can read up a bit from these links and I will explain them further as we get to them on Saturday:

Karazhan - Dec 11 & 15

This is for the sign ups for the Kara run on Dec 11 (Tues) and Dec 15 (Sat). First half of the run will be on Tues. Having taken down Attunemen & Midnight, Moroes** and Maiden last time, we should be able to do the 1st half without any problems this next time. We should start meeting around 7-7:30, start no later than 8.

Also... please download Omen mod, a threat meter, and the latest version of ventrillo.

Sign up today!

Kara Run Schedule

We're giving Kara another try, and I'm hoping to do it more consistently. I hope that we can run it every 2nd week of the month. Tuesday, being a popular night for people to jump on would be the 1st half of Karazhan, then Sat we'll go for the 2nd half.

So with that, the next Kara run is on Dec 11 (Tues) then follow up is on Dec 15 (Sat). Sign-Ups will be on a different post.

Guild Bank

The guild bank is now live... however Blizzard did not make it cheap. There could be a total of 6 tabs (correct me if I'm wrong) for the bank with about 90+ slots each. 1st slot cost 100g, 2nd slot would be 250g, 3rd is some higher value of course, and etc...

With that being put into place, access to the bank is kind of funky. Although it tracks who takes out and who deposits, currently what is in place generally is all deposits (gold and items) are unlimited to most (I'd have to see what Kyron has set) guild members, withdrawals are available mainly to donors (gold) which could in turn help expand the guild bank.

Again I'd have to talk to Kyron and see what else he has put in place, but a re-org of guild rankings were made with his help and they are as follow:

Old -> New
High Templar ->
Sentinel -> Arbiter
Guardian -> Archon/Templar
Knight -> Corsair
Initiate -> Observer/Scout

High Templar - Guild Leader; unlimited
Arbiter - Senior Officers; a lot more bank access (multiple donor... hopefully)
Archon - Seasoned Veteran; more bank access (donor)

Templar - Seasoned Veteran; limited bank access
Corsair - Regular; limited bank access
Observer - Regular but nactive for 2+ months; no bank access
Scout - noobie... still green to guild; no bank access

** this isn't finalized and corrections may be made to this access list

Maiden PWND!!!

Congratz to everyone on a fantastic weekend; not only did we power our way through Attunemen and his wussy horse, we conquered Moroes again and pop Maiden's cherry.

It's safe to say that for Attunemen having 3 tanks made it pretty easy, as well as having two priests and their shackles. Having 3 healers at the moment for Moroes is the requirement for us. Maiden of course is just tricky so let's hopefully keep this up and next thing for us to conquer is the Opera Event, imo the best part of Kara. Also keep up the good run we have as to gear some more of our ppl out with PURPLEZ!!!

I believe Beta might have a plan for another Kara on the 17th so stay tune to the Guild's MOTD and this blog but I'm sure everyone knows by now that Thomas (Rotgutt) is getting hitched soon so Rotgutt, Caharin, and Kinzlayer will be out on the 17th as that will be when we get Thomas silly drunk and savor his last moment of freedom before he becomes a responsible adult with a wife to aggro.

Once again great Kara and congratz to all who participate and got some nice PURPLEZ out of it.

Once more into Kara.

Please leave a comment on this post whether if you can make it to Kara this Saturday, the 10th of November. We hope to start getting round up at 7pm PST and start the run at 7:30pm PST.

We hope to get to Maiden again and get her down this time.

This is to allow people in guild to coordinate raid run for Kara. Primarily we need consensus on when people would like to run Kara (what day of the week or what time of the day).

Use the link for google calendar's to put in your time preference:

Everyone can view the calendar events but you must have a gmail account to edit the calendar events.

PS. we have found that to edit the Shadow Templar calendar you must do so from your own google calendar.

Update (Nymeria): we created a gmail account for our guild. The username is shadowtemplars. Please send an email to for the password. That way we all can directly access/modify the calendar and post in this blog. Just try to identify yourself to avoid confusion.
