Another boss, another tier, another xpac. Is it... over? Although Antorus didn't quite meet our expectations, I'm pleased to announce that the guild never gave up and saw things through to the end.
Legion was rough. Even though I felt pretty good about where we stood coming into the expansion, it was by far the most challenging one in terms of leadership. The first two raids, relatively speaking, went pretty well. At some point though, burnout started to kick in after the initial hype died down. This became evident with so many guilds this expansion; too many of them collapsed under the pressures of grinding AP, maintaining alts, and running a roster of 20-30 people. I think for us, this started becoming mostly relevant in Nighthold and beyond. Managing a guild isn't easy. It takes sacrifice, constant recruiting, endless organization, and most of all, a willingness to continue these efforts every day in hopes of achieving some level of satisfaction in the end. This is where we stand today.
It's been a crazy journey. Personally, having played and been a part of this guild for something like 10+ years, I have seen hundreds of people come and go through our doors, many of whom ended up being some of the closest and best friends I've ever had the pleasure of raiding with. This is the only reason I have made it this far. Somewhere along the line, I became less and less focused on ranks and more and more drawn towards enjoying the game and relishing the moments that we've gotten to share together. I am hopeful that you guys share this sentiment with me.
This is the part where I'd usually go into thanking our sponsors and the key members of the Dsylxeic house, but instead, I would just like to say thank you to everyone for making this experience what it is and thank you for being an incredible group that's made this guild a home to me and a family that I will never forget. -CellyD
No one reads this shit anyways right?
