Dathea .. Decended (Heroically)
Congratulations to all our raiders .. and commiserations to those who couldn't be there for the kill
Patch 10.0.7 arrives 22nd March 2023
With the defeat of Raszageth secured, a new opportunity to seek out and find answers about the dracthyr Evokers and their history arises within the Forbidden Reach. This max-level experience introduces new bosses and objectives, additional storms, new loot, and more.
Welcome to Morqut Village on the Morqut Islet
Every adventure in a new land has a starting point, and yours will begin on the Morqut Islet. You’ll find a variety of vendors and quest givers ready to send you on your first adventures within the Forbidden Reach.
You’ll want to keep your eye out for treasures and Bonus Objectives as you explore the mysteries of the Forbidden Reach. You never know what intriguing new items you’ll find and who will want to reward you for them.
Choose between the Dragonscale Expedition, Iskaara Tuskarr, Maruuk Centaur, and Valdrakken Accord to help each day to earn a 10% reputation increase for that faction. Envoys will occasionally offer quests for extra reputation and Elemental Overflow to spend at the Envoy traders for new rewards such as four new Dragonriding customizations, the Buckie battle pet, and the Noble Bruffalon mount.
The game is afoot and there’s treasure to be found in the Zskera Vault. Players will be able to enter a randomized treasure room to seek out the puzzles, monsters, and mysteries within. Each vault is unique to your character and available to complete until the next weekly reset. You’ll also be able to undertake a new vault quest each week from black dragon Voraxian, which will lead you through some long-buried history.
Pathfinder Jeb and Pathfinder Tacha will help you start your foray into the vault and provide your first 6 Zskera Vault Key but to gain access to more doors within the vault, you’ll need to search more of the Forbidden Reach to find them.
Each door within the vault will require its own key to gain access. Keys are Bind on Account so can be easily used by your alternate characters to continue your progress through the Vaults.
The Onyx Annulet and Primordial Stones
When you first venture into the Zskera Vaults, you’ll discover a quest for an “Unusual Ring.” Delivering the ring to Researcher Imareth at Morqut Village will reward you with the Onyx Annulet. An experiment by Neltharion, you can infuse the Annulet with the power of the elements by socketing up to three Primordial Stones. These Primordial Stones can be found as you discover treasures in the vaults. Every combination provides new and interesting synergies between them allowing you to create interesting outcomes to aid you through the Forbidden Reach and beyond.
New Event: Mega-Storm
The impact of Raszageth’s escape is still keenly felt near her prison, and Primal Storms consisting of the varying elements, continue to besiege the area outside her prison. Completing these storm events rewards adventurers with upgraded storms gear. You’ll also accumulate Elemental Overflow as you engage with the Forbidden Reach’s mysteries and creatures. Elemental Overflow can be exchanged for gear on the Morqut Islet or Mythressa in Valdrakken.
New Dragonriding Races
Take to the skies and soar through six new races within the Forbidden Reach. You’ll also gain access to some new Dragonriding abilities along the way. Be prepared for a little danger as you make your way through the courses—the sky is not yours alone.
New Pet Battles
Meet up with a Pet Battlemaster in the Forbidden Reach to undertake a new challenge and gain some new battle pets along the way.
New Pet Storms
Remnants of the Storms are channeling strength—defeat their minions and weaken them to claim them for your own! By defeating Storm-Touched pets, you’ll be able to weaken, defeat, and capture new elemental pets to add to your Battle Pet collection.
A new boss down!
Congratulations everyone .. almost smooth sailing with our new boss kill ;-)
Roster Updates - Promotions
The following roster updates have been made today:
Promoted from Pup to Cub:
Almojo, Audam, Biinq, Biinqlock, Blackbeardm, Blindedrage, Brizali, Daddyshere, Djuun, Doneiia, Doriie, Esrea, Gantoris, Gorzogg, Hieronimous, Hooftomeetu, Hydrox, Jiminey, Kobayashifan, Lincdh, Malt, Maryonna, Merymo, Mhoash, Moratu, Moxic, Mucu, Noctus, Omi, Pompeyhealz, Polleknight, Qeldoreth, Qium, Rightdru, Rogozjin, Saeje, Samiexpala, Shianti, Shiantí, Trollako, Uniqua, Vemon, Verrulli, Xaii.
Promoted from Cub to Juvenile:

Promoted from Juvenile to Wolf (and all alts placed in Wolf Alt rank):

Promoted from Wolf/Wolf Alt to Werewolf:
Aglivoker, Bwulf, Desiderix, Elrik, Jazzak, Karranon, Maccowroni, Savania, Aglion, Dithiil, Emong, Limefang, Myta, Nandydandy.
For additional information on how the ranks work, please see that section in the guild info. If you believe there has been a mistake, feel free to reply below and I'll look into it.
If you have ANY character in the Wolf or Wolf Alt rank, and have alts invited into the guild, please remind an officer to promote your new character to the Wolf Alt rank. Once you have reached the "Wolf" rank, all additional characters should automatically be given the Wolf Alt rank. (and when I say "automatically" .. I mean we still have to do it manually, but it's not something your new character has to work for ). If you do not have a character at the Wolf/Wolf Alt/Werewolf rank, then any alts invited into the guild should join as a Pup. Please ensure you have a note in your public notes in the roster, showing your "main" name.
Please note: Your "main" name is NOT the character you currently play the most. It is simply, in the majority of instances, the character you FIRST JOINED WITH. We have to have some way of linking all of your characters together, so this is how we do it. If you don't feel comfortable with this process, look at it as more your "first" character and "subsequent" characters. It's just easier to call them alts, than "subsequents"
If, prior to today, you were at the Wolf/Wolf Alt rank, and regularly raid, and feel you should be in the Werewolf rank, please let me know and I'll check for you.
Reminder of rules for "inactive" removals and public notes:
"Inactives" are those who have not been online for a substantial period of time - usually 6+ months, although the majority of ranks are eligible for removal after one month inactive, especially if they have not been particularly active within the guild even when they were online. Characters linked to others in the guild roster using the "Alt" public note are all checked to ensure that all characters have been inactive for some time.
The only people able to amend your public note now are you, when you're on that character, or an officer. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT ALL YOUR ALTS ARE MARKED AS SUCH.
Characters that have nothing in their public notes linking them to other characters are much more likely to be removed for inactivity (as all linked characters are checked for activity prior to removal for inactivity). Members who have not registered with this website and/or leave our Discord are much more likely to be removed for inactivity.
Please also do not add anything in the public note section of your alts, other than the "main" character name. You may, if you wish, add your real name/nickname against your "main" - but no other information. Gear scores, roles, professions, etc .. all often change and should not be included. See the Guild Rules for additional information.
Anyone completely removed from the guild roster, who then wishes to rejoin the guild, are welcome to complete a new application form, where they are advised to mention they were a previous guild member.
Some long term inactives will occasionally be placed in the MiA (Missing in Action) rank. These are people who we feel (or have told us) they may come back, and were long term members prior to that. When someone is placed on MiA, only one character is kept in guild and the rest are removed, however, if/when they do return, they do not need to reapply, they will be moved out of MiA to Cub (instead of Pup as would have been the case if they'd been removed previously), and they can immediately request for their alts to be reinvited (at Pup rank). Those in MiA get a longer time away from the game before being considered for removal completely.
Occasionally we will remove members for reasons other than inactivity. These reasons vary from obvious incompatibilty with the guild to being offline/uncontactable/unresponsive yet causing admin issues in some way, for an extended period of time.
A New Boss Down!
Congratulations everyone .. we're now officially halfway through clearing Heroic!
Everyone did an excellent job tonight, despite Blizzard causing some issues with "upgrades" to the system breaking certain nameplates, and weird graphical glitches - hard mode Dark Wolves style :P
Two new bosses down!
Congratulations everyone .. two new bosses down .. woot!!
