Last night the HammerStrike raiding alliance took on some old foes that have been redone for level 60 raiding. Although most of the loot had been turned off (due to some tuning issues that Trion still has to deal with), the 3 bosses we did kill dropped some very nice items that were upgrades for the winners.
For the most part, the strategies that worked in the level 50 version of the raid were the same for the new level 60 version. Isskal threw us a bit of a curveball with a now random “rings of death” phase – the old pattern we knew no longer applied since the rings started in random places. We one-shotted the first 2 bosses and wiped on all the trash, as is our tradition. Isskal took a few tries, but we were successful in the end and ran out of time to play with Hydriss. We’ll get her next week.

Monday December 16th – 6:30pm Server Time
We are planning an in-game Holiday Party with The Hammerfist Clan for the evening of December 16. There will be roleplay, feasting and a gift exchange.
If you’d like to participate in the gift exchange, please come prepared with a gray quality item. That’s right, just a plain old mob dropped item. The challenge will be to see who comes up with the funniest, most creative “gift” for your friends.
Event will take place in the Hammerfist Clan guild dimension. Wear your holiday finery! Please take a moment to RSVP and let us know who will be attending so we can make sure we have enough food for everyone.

There will be no scheduled Storm Legion raids November 26th, but we’ll resume raiding again on December 5 and probably start adding Tuesday nights so that we can include the new Drowned Halls in our rotation.
In the meantime, let me extend my Thanks and Best Wishes to you and your families on behalf of the officers and members of Silent Strike. I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!
I also wanted to say how thankful I am for all of you Strikers! You make gaming fun and are much more than just some people I play a game with. You’re friends, companions, comic relief and a large reason I keep playing these games.
