I have changed the colour scheme, part of the layout, updated previously out of date pages, added a new main banner & other images and I plan to add a new entrance page soon as well.

World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade!!!

Several years have passed since the Burning Legion's defeat at Mount Hyjal and the races of Azeroth have continued to rebuild their once shattered lives. With renewed strength, the heroes of the Horde and Alliance have begun to explore new lands and broken through the Dark Portal to investigate the realms beyond the known world. Will these heroes find friends or foes? What dangers and rewards lie in wait beyond the Dark Portal? And what will they do when they discover that the demons they thought vanquished have returned to renew their terrible Burning Crusade?

SSX & GoE Down Onyxia!!

Yesterday evening the Exiles of Shattered Star & Grace of Elune, Bladefist/WoW:EU successfully downed Onyxia for the first time!

For anyone that doesn't play WoW, Onyxia is a one of the main endgame bosses in WoW, a huge dragon that takes a raid of 40 people to kill her, also owner of probably one of the most powerful attacks currently ingame - deep breath. Thankfully we didn't meet that lil attack yesterday ;p

We have already downed 9 of 10 bosses in the Molten Core, now we have downed Onyxia as well. This only leaves us with Ragnaros before we can finally move on to Blackwing Lair!

Grats to everyone that took part. ;D
