Darkwind 2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR, DARKWIND!

The new year brings around more things for our guildmates to participate in. One of the benefits of being in a guild is to be able to tackle some aspects of the game with other people. More casual in nature, Darkwind will host them, and if you are free and want to come along, come and go as you please. It will take some time to roll these events out on a regular basis, so pardon the dust as we settle into the changes. These events include, but are not limited to:

  • TIMEWALKING EVENTS (Transmog runs, Timewalking dungeon nights, Timewalking raids)
  • TRIVIA NIGHTS
  • MYTHIC+ NIGHTS
  • LEGACY NIGHTS (Older Legion raids for quest and transmog acquisition)

Growlie will be reviving our GET TO KNOW YOUR GUILDIES, an interview-styled spotlight on members--new and old--to give our guildies more information on our Darkwind population. From these posts, you may learn some interesting facts about the people you see online.

Having a hard time finding others to run MYTHIC+ DUNGEONS? Liarawolf is here to help. Make sure to communicate with him, and he will do his best to coordinate with others, to allow for successful attempts at harder dungeon content.

Much of our direction moving forward has been solidified by the responses we obtained from our guild survey in October, so a big thank you goes out to everyone that took the time to answer our questions. To continue to provide an avenue for feedback, we will pin a FEEDBACK FORM on our Discord server, for members to leave thoughts, ideas, and responses to what Darkwind does well, and what Darkwind can improve upon.

Darkwind is always looking for people to help out with things around the guild, so if you are interested in hosting a trivia night, heading up some transmog/timewalking runs, or flesh out a current deficit, please let Shadram know! Lastly, if you ever have any questions about any of our existing events, the revamped #welcome channel on Discord has links for who to contact.

HERE'S TO 2018!

Merry Winter Veil

Darkwind Winter Veil 2017

Thanks for all who showed up for the Darkwind Winter Veil celebration! Special grats to Growliebear for winning the Ugly Transmog Contest, Malfrost for finding all the items for the Holiday Scavenger Hunt, and Leiasha for his quick knowledge of Carol Trivia. This year, we had 15 guildies participating in Secret Santa as well, so for everyone who went out of their way to give their person a great gift, thanks for making someone's holidays a little brighter.

Heroic KJ

After a leisurely stroll through the Tomb of Sargeras, Darkwind's Progression Team watched Heroic Kil'jaeden fall. Great job raiders, and here's to preparation for Antorus, and the conflict on Argus!

Gul'dan is Gul'down...? Gul'dan is Gul'gone...? Gul'dan is Gul'dead...? <insert other Gul'dan pun here>.

Tonight, Darkwind's Progression Raid downed Heroic Gul'dan for the first time. It took quite a bit of flawless execution to pull off this feat, but we were successful! This brings Darkwind another "Ahead of the Curve" achievement, and the conflict in the Nighthold finds its resolution. Great job, team!

If you'd like to join our team in the upcoming Tomb of Sargeras raid, make sure to check out the raiding document, and chat with a member of the Raid Lead team (Bloodshox, Waldhaar, Karensa, or Shadram) so we can assist you. Kil'jaeden, here we come!

Kill video below! Thanks Liarawolf for editing and putting that together for us.
