Sithilus Grind Day 09/07/06 (WoW:EU)

This sunday 09/07/06 Will be an organised guild day in sithilus. We will be completing as many sithilus quests as possible. If you have nothing better to do, or would just like to help I'd like to see you there.

Anybody with quests to finish and things to summon should meet up in cenarion hold by 12 midday BST. We will organise sorties out to finish the quests and gather materials to summon the smaller and if we have enough people, larger bosses at the camps.

We will be using vent, so treat this like an outdoor raid.

Additions to the FFXI Group Website

We have finished making some additions to the FFXI group website. The website now also contains a short guide for people seeking to join us in FFXI, mostly aimed at current SSX members.

We have a large influx of people about to try out the game, if any others seek to follow their lead in the future they can now find some information on the payment, its expansions, and creating a character on our server on the website.

SSX defeat the Twin Emperors!

After being on only the second night of attempts, yesterday evening the SSX on Outland defeated the Twin Emperors in the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj!

Only C'Thun is left to defeat (minus the optional bosses) who is the final boss in AQ40 and also the hardest boss currently ingame.

Grats! ;D

Rapid Growth For The FFXI Group

After being up and running for just about 3 weeks the Final Fantasy XI group can proudly report that we have almost quadrupled our numbers. From two or three people actively playing the game we now have around twelve members, and the group is still growing.

We wish congratulations to the group and its members for this great success, and may it continue to expand as time goes on.

FFXI Garrison Event!

The members of the Final Fantasy XI group have been invited to a Garrison event in West Saru at 1PM EST (6PM GMT) on June 11th.

In order to attend the event you will need to be at least level 20, and be prepared to repel several waves of Beastmen.

To sign up for the event and for more information, see this thread

The Coming Scourge Invasion...

The day many have feared for years has finally come: the Scourge has launched a direct attack on the lands of Azeroth! Reports of necropolis sightings are coming in from all over the world, the massive structures looming ominously on the horizon, ready to move at Kel'Thuzad's command. A dreadful dawn is rising in the east as the Lich King's dark minions prepare to descend upon Azeroth. Soon the Scourge will march again, and this time there is no prophet to speak the warning, no gallant knight to fight the coming darkness, no legendary hero to thwart the monstrosity on the Frozen Throne.

It is up to you now to become the fire that burns against the cold, the light of hope that prevails beneath the shadow of the necropolis!

-To learn more about this upcoming event see the new Invasion of the Scourge page!

Final Fantasy XI Group Up and Running!

Within the last few days we've launched our latest group within the SSX, Final Fantasy XI. Several of us are venturing out into the world of Vanadiel (some of us are veterans there, others new) to seek adventure, and we now have enough to make the group official and start our own Linkshell.

Our group website has also now been completed and can be found here where you'll be able to find the latest updates about the group, a list of group members and their current skills, and screenshots.

Comments can be left on the group forum, as can applications if you wish to join us in our adventures across Vanadiel.

Anatomy of a Monster : Thaddius
