Normal Last Boss

We decided it was time for us to get out there and kill some bosses so we started off the new year strong by finishing up normal Highmaul on the first raid of the year.

We were unable to raid two days the last two weeks so with only one day this week we wanted to raid strong and we did. Putting the raid together we had 30 people here ready to kill some internet dragons. We push though the 6/7 we had already killed and got to Imperator Mar'gok with about an hour left. We got a few close pulls but it wasn't until we reached the power of "Last pull" that we got everything together and killed him.

Now we move on to see if we can do it again in Heroic.
Anthraxus Classic "this is going to be our last pull for the evening..." kill. Those are the best.
Malkai Grats everyone, excellent accomplishment
Artdeux Giant purple bubbles need to be a prerequisite for every raid photo.

Happy 7th Birthday!!

Once again, it is time to celebrate the passage of another year.

We've made the observation time and time again that Archetype has transitioned from a simple guild to a community.  I'd argue that it more closely resembles a family now than a simple community.  As I look back on what has been accomplished by our membership over the past year, I think first of those who have gotten married, had a child together, lost a tremendous amount of weight, started a new job, purchased a new home, bought a new car, or made some other major personal advancement to better their lives.  We've seen the children of members grow up before our eyes over the past seven years.  We've seen a member become a grandparent again.  Any in-game accomplishments are secondary to all of this.  

It continues to be a privilege and a source of great personal pride to be a part of this group.  

As we begin another year, the new WoW expansion has brought many familiar faces back from months (if not years) of inactivity.  Try to take a few moments to say hello - or, introduce yourself for the first time.  What an exciting time!
Fefina a It is really nice to see some friendly faces again - welcome back Veterans!
This is a bit delayed but worth celebrating, nonetheless!

Our gaming family was born on December 1st, 2007, and we have been running strong ever since. 
We've had many hiccups along the way, but through our commitment to each other and to our love of gaming, 
we pulled through. With each upset we persevered and became stronger and wiser, and now here we are in our 6th year - 
we've stayed together longer than most guilds can boast, and that's something to be proud of.

We have at last succumbed to 10 mans, like every other guild on our server, however we were the "last man standing" in 25s 
for a very long time. We continue to plow through Mists of Pandaria, and are currently working through the last 3 bosses of 
Seige of Orgrimmar, and our progression is steady and persistent. 

I think I can safely speak for everyone on the Guild Council when I say we are proud of you, Archetype; you continue to impress
 and amaze us. Stay steady and strong, and above all else, stick together!
Strikegodd I would like to post Happy Bday to the guild on the behalf of me and Holywon it was an honor to have played with you guy ...
Putress Woot happy bday and grats on all the kills.
Fefina a ONE boss to go!
Syndrith, High Priestess of Lolth is no more!

After many attempts and numerous strategies, we finally defeated Syndrith. We are proud to say that we didn't use any exploits or short 
cuts, and we did it our way - our usual badass dps, and such an intense desire to squish her into the pavement that 
we refused to leave without finishing her off. 

Next on the list for us will be the Frozen Heart, otherwise known by our succinct crew as "Frost Dungeon." Stay tuned!

(By the way, that is her mangled leg in the picture... this game isn't the greatest for screenies so we're going to have to get artistic.)
Syndrith, High Priestess
Cynec That cleric in the foreground just don't give no fucks. To be fair, the kill was mostly due to her clutch 500 point heal ...
Malevolent (Benevolent) See that side boob? That's MY side boob! Awesome pic of an awesome accomplishment!
Putress Such a great feeling completing this dungeon!

Thunder crashes no more

At long last Archetype has cleared the last boss in Throne of Thunder. We decided it was time for this boss to die so we extended the lockout for a week and spent 2 days working on him. We got close but the RNG wasn't kind to us so we were forced to go home empty handed. Not wanting to give up we decided to extend the lock out another week. Ready to go in on Tuesday we were defeated not by the boss but by RL keeping just enough of our raid from going so we didn't have a group. Rather then let this get us down it made us even more determined to take down this boss next time. So on Sunday we knew it was time for him to die. We went in with a full raid and knew if we had to fight all night we would. Turns out all we needed was 5 pulls. Now at last the thunder king has bowed to us.
