February 07, 2008
So with a good bunch of people attuned now, the guild has been going trough the new content at a pretty steady rate.

Anetheron : 3 Feb 2008
Kaz'rogal : 3 Feb 2008
Azgalor : 4 Feb 2008
High Warlord Naj'entus : 6 Feb 2008
Supremus : 6 Feb 2008

It's almost a laugh how fast some of these bosses go down.

Supremus was the biggest joke of the lot so far. Supreme of what?
The trash in the BT courtyard hits for only a fraction that mobs in most heroics do. Supremus himself went down in two tries. (Would have been one if we weren't so psyched up about it) Black temple sure is a step up from Kael'thas so far... well loot wise anyway.

But in all seriousness. Having just spent about 2 months on Vashj, and 5 weeks on Kael'thas. We sort of were expecting a bigger challenge. Yeah i know, just wait until you get to Archimonde, Teron gorefiend, or Reliquary of souls, then the real fun starts. Illidan is said to be easier than the reliquary. Time will tell i guess.

Hyjal and Black temple are a welcome change of scenery for all of us though. Kael is called the "breaker of guilds" for good reason. If you are having trouble with him check out the thread about him on the EJ forums. I can only suggest you keep trying, a lot. As the new stuff is well worth it.

In other news

MMOC has a post about some speculated class changes that might be coming with 2.4. Though there's also a very big disclaimer attached to it, since the source isn't blizzard it's very possible to be false or inaccurate.

It lists a couple of PvP nerfs that people have been crying about for a while.
I won't go into too much detail as the list is probably just fan made as most unofficial changes tend to be. Still, it can't hurt to have a look.

2.4 lists a load of other changes which will be popping up here n there, not least of all being the Sunwell. I can't wait.

Legendary Bow

Blizzard have also confirmed that there will be a Legendary Bow in 2.4. It'll drop in the same fashion as the warglaives from illidan, and have mostly hunter stats. (so you won't have to worry about rogues or warriors rolling for your pretty shiny weapon.

Hero classes

Blizzard "might" add other hero classes in patches such as 3.1, 3.2 once WotLK is released. They mention "Arch Druid" as an example.
