May Updates

Shadram a posted May 1, 18  -  darkwind guildnewsletter

IT'S MAY, DARKWIND! Hard to believe a third of 2018 has already passed us by. So with only a few months until pre-patch & the new expansion, we just wanted to fill you guys in on what Darkwind is working on, through to the launch of BfA and onward.

Bakey's been testing out some new features that we're looking to roll out for our DARKWIND DISCORD UPDATES. We'll be creating new social channels which will allow more opportunities for our community to interact, in addition to channels to discuss other games we may be playing as Legion is wrapping up. If you haven't gotten used to Discord, it's a great communication tool to stay in touch with our gaming community. Pick up the Discord app on your phone, hop in a voice channel while gaming, make a new friend! While you're at it, fill out Growlie's "Get to Know Your Guildie" survey: https://goo.gl/forms/erkn1OhIojZmUXgO2.

Bloodshox & Waldhaar are still leading PROGRESSION & SUNDAY RAIDS, respectively. The end of an expansion is a great time to figure out which characters you want to main or alt in BfA. Sunday Raid is a great place to gear and learn your class, and Progression Raid will help you refine your gameplay. In addition, Liarawolf continues to host MYTHIC+ NIGHTS every Wednesday.

Quimby's been providing regular opportunities for fun and quirky EVENTS, including but not limited to  transmog/pet/achievement runs that bring us through often overlooked & obscure content. She does a great job of posting on Discord & Facebook what and when these events are, so check regularly for what these events are. Darkwind will be hosting a HIDE & SEEK shortly, and a COMMUNITY OUTREACH WEEK during pre-patch.

Ticket sale dates for BLIZZCON 2018 have been announced. If you want to challenge RNGesus in trying to buy tickets, make sure you are free a few minutes before 7pm PDT/10pm EDT Wed, May 9 and/or 10am PDT/1pm EDT on Sat, May 12. If you're interested in meeting up in Anaheim during BlizzCon weekend, keep an eye out for details in the near future.

If you need a great guide on things to work on prior to pre-patch: http://www.wowhead.com/what-to-do-before-battle-for-azeroth is a great place to browse. Also, don't hesitate to drop some feedback for the leadership with ideas/suggestions/comments in our Feedback Form found in the #welcome channel on Discord.

I'd like to offer a big THANK YOU to the leadership who work behind the scenes to keep the guild running consistently and successfully through Legion. The amount of preparation it takes Aredawg to DM and write 2 DnD campaigns, Malfrost keeping our vault stocked all expansion and bringing our coffers into BfA with several million gold, Karensa managing stress levels and keeping the peace. It's often a thankless unpaid job, and it takes a special kind of person to remain so committed to providing for our community.  Make sure to take some time to show some appreciation to an officer for what they do for Darkwind.

Here's to the last few months of Legion, and looking forward to BATTLE FOR AZEROTH!

DW Officers

 

Vail

Hello my lovely guildies, this month's G2KYG is none other than the lovely Vail! Yay for druids! Not that I'm biased... (but I'm biased)  If you are interested in being one of our next victims interviewees, let Growlie know in game or on Discord! Anyways, on with the interview!

-------------------

First off, what is your toon's name or what you go by in game? 
My main right now is Alaeis, but I go by Vail.

How long have you been playing WoW?
Started in BC but I was a super noob, never got to max level. Started back up in Cata and became pretty hardcore around Dragonsoul.

What made you start playing WoW?
Initially because my sister played it, but then when Worgen were added in I thought those were awesome.

What is your favorite race/class/spec?
I think I like every race in the game for it's own reasons. But I love Worgen and Tauren. Gameplay wise I really enjoy fury warrior but lore wise feral druid is my favorite.

What brought you to Darkwind?
Was looking for a good, active guild that had a good heroic team. Probably my favorite guild I've ever been in!

What is one (or more!) of your favorite memories from WoW?
One that stands out to me was when an Orc attacked me at Highmountain and I managed to push him off the edge to his death. But there's so many good memories to choose from really.

What is your favorite things to do in game?
Definitely raiding, I also enjoy the collecting part of the game. Love mount farming and all that.

If Blizzard to shut down all servers tomorrow, what game would you be playing?
I dunno, maybe try Guild Wars 2 again. No MMO ever holds my attention like WoW does, though.

Tell us more about yourself outside of the game! What are some of your hobbies or things that you do for fun besides play WoW?
I draw quite a lot, I love animals, dogs specifically. I live with my boyfriend, dog, cat and Axolotl in Alberta Canada. I also quite like swimming although I am not very good at it.

What do you do for your job, or what would you love to do as your job?
Right now I mainly do art commissions for work, but I have been a dog trainer in the past. I may get back into that but I am also considering being a 911 dispatcher.

You can have one superpower for 24 hours. Which one would you have and what would you do with it?
I think I would like to shape shift, going back to my love of druids. I would just fly around and run around and experience what it is like as those animals.

Describe the coolest place you have ever visited? (outside of the game of course)
I go hiking with my dog and we once hiked to this far out remote area, climbed a big hill and once at the top it looked as if we could see the entire world. I have done some traveling in my life but that particular area stands out to me.

If you were a giant mega monster, what city would you rampage?
New York because they're used to it.

What makes you nostalgic?
Thinking back to the 90s when things were simpler and more radical.

What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?
Dishes. I hate dishes. I always make the boyfriend do them. (But I do the laundry which he hates)

Do you have any pets? If so, tell us about them!
I have a german shepherd lab mix (Rask) A white cat (Cloud) And an Axolotl (Bloop) We are also looking to add a ball python to our zoo. We're very big animal people.

What is your favorite color?
I wear a lot of black and white because I'm emo. (Not really)

What is your favorite food? (or favorite thing you've ever eaten!)
I very much like pasta.

What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?
Probably more far off traveling, like traveling the world. That could be a hobby.

What are some small things that make your day better?
If I pretend shoot my dog he flops onto his back as if he's dead. Never gets old.

What are some of your favorite TV shows?
Game of Thrones!

What is the luckiest thing that has happened to you?
Probably managing to leave home at 18 despite bad things happening, starting my life over, finding love and living life! It's the little things that count.

Is there anything that you'd like to see the guild do more in game? Or any suggestions of future events?
Wouldn't mind a RBG team starting up, even if we aren't amazing at it. Might be fun!

What is one (or more!) of your favorite memories from WoW? 
I once levitated down the elevator in BRD, aggroing Ony, and having her follow us up the elevator to wipe the raid before they fixed that bug. Falling off the ledge of every instance in the game, making friends and wiping the group; Life-gripping my pocket tank and wiping the.... I detect a theme here.

Violet Spellwing

Darkwind has done it; clearing Antorus with a Heroic Argus kill. This brings us our final Ahead of the Curve for the expansion, with a shiny new Violet Spellwing mount as a reward. It takes quite a bit of practice, teamwork, & understanding of your teammates to achieve this throughout the entire stretch of Legion, so great work everyone.

A special shoutout to our Progression raiders that have raided the entire span of Legion: from Emerald Nightmare, into the Trial of Valor, through the Nighthold, into the Tomb of Sargeras, finally ending our journey at Antorus, the Burning Throne. A big thanks to Bloodshox, Growliebear, Henessy, Karensa, Leiur, Liarawolf, Lunahime, Ramza, Shadram, Shozz, and Waldhaar for your unwavering dedication to seeing us through the expansion. 

As we wrap up the expansion and prepare for BfA, our Raid Lead team would like to thank all raiders for being here, and for keeping raiding fun, light-hearted, and 4 hours in the week to look forward to. Here's to our raiding endeavors in BfA!

For those interested in trying their hand at clearing Heroic Argus, make sure to make contact with any member of the Raid Lead team (Bloodshox, Karensa, Shadram, or Waldhaar) to see how you can become part of the Progression Team.
