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

Emerald Dream - Four Dragons Preview

There is a disturbance at the Great Trees. A new threat menaces these secluded areas found in Ashenvale, Duskwood, Feralas, and Hinterlands. Four great guardians of the Green Dragonflight have arrived from the Dream, but these once-proud protectors now seek only destruction and death. Take arms with your fellows and march to these hidden groves -- only you can defend Azeroth from the corruption they bring.

Silithus Revamp - WoW

Since the beginning of recorded history, Azeroth has seen the most terrible conflicts imaginable. The War of the Ancients and the Sundering of the World. The coming of the Tides of Darkness. The return of the Burning Legion, the Scourge of Lordaeron and the rise of the Lich King. Yet all this time, deep beneath the shifting sands of Silithus, an unspeakable horror has been lying in wait, ever patient, and ever enduring...

We've updated the FFXI website with a number cosmetic things, as well as a redirect to it's own URL.

While it is still hosted on the SSX servers, and we consider them part of the family anyway, the new forum URL is external.
