Prizes updated

From last week, we had some of improvement. Not on raiding front, lack of healers forced the cancelation of two HC Halfus raids.

We started doing rated BGs with enough wins to max out conquest points. The new guild challenges lured lot of guilds to rated BG, we met completely new guilds.

We are guarding our place on the's EU guild achievement list. We are around #60 with 1645 points. The new gain was Thori'dal, it's part of a contract we made with someone. He bought us this for gold, in and we help him complete Shadowmourne and try to get his other half of Glaive every week. Of course when these are complete, we get the achievements too. Since the raids cost me around 10K every week, by the time we get Shadowmourne, I'll spend the 60K I considered for these achievements.

Let's see what more we could get:
  • 4.2 "do X challenges" achievements: can't be hurried as the challenges are weekly capped.
  • The Daily Grind: 44% and it would be insane to pay for them. People will do TB dailies anyway for the resistance trinket.
  • Battleground and arena achievements: This is the new focus, but needs much more effort to get there. Are you not entertained? prize is still 5000/G person.
  • Glaives: 20000G offered for anyone who gets them on his own. While we have a contract with someone with half glaive, RNG is nasty.
  • We are legendary: meta for the above ones for 25 points.
  • Heroic raid achievements: currently out of reach, we just completed normal content.
  • Dinner Party: on 78% but I won't speed it, feasts are damn expensive to just place them in middle of SW.
  • Better Leveling Through Chemistry: 47%, out of reach as flasks are cheaper than materials, would be insane loss to craft them.
  • Master Crafter: 75% but crafting epics just to DE would be simply insane.
  • We're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat: 62%, probably this is the one I could pay for. Fish is useful anyway, I simply pay others for farming them.
  • United nations: The damn thing is still bugged, but we have someone who has 55 reputations alone! So we'll get it when he reaches revered guild rep.

In your post on Saturday the 30th of april you said that the guild achievement "Dinner Party" was on 80%, and in this news post it says 78% for the same achievement. Is one of those a typo or is it on purpose?

For Dinner Party, I would suggest contracting/paying people to fish-farm in Wintergrasp. you get equal amounts of the fish needed for Wrath's Fish Feast, all in one spot without running all over.

Not useful, but someone out there with Netflix and wanting gold could do it.

Or you could have a couple people set up with fish bots overnight a couple times a week, if you are into that....
