wow Paragon Disbands!

1 post in this topic

16155-paragon-disbands.jpg

In a shocking story put out on the official Paragon site, it looks like one of the longest standing and most successful guilds in World of Warcraft history has officially disbanded. Check out the rest of the story!

 

For many of you, Paragon is a guild name that most likely brings back memories of some truly fantastic world first kills in the past. Ranging back as far as Ulduar, the guild managed to reach a top-10 world ranking on their Algalon kill, before taking the rank 2 spot on Yogg-Saron. 

 

The next few years saw Paragon dominating the raiding scene, with their guild managing to take 15 out of 19 possible world first kills over the next 4 expansions. Over recent tiers, however, the guild has struggled to recruit players to join its ranks. Unlike their fierce rivals Method, the guild only raids in Finnish. This means their recruitment pools are incredibly small when it comes to finding new talent.

 

As the game changed and time went on, the guild struggled to fill spots that were left vacant by players leaving the game. It seems this has finally caught up with them and they have made the decision to disband the guild. 

 

We have decided to stop raiding which obviously means we will not be a part of the world first race in Legion. In the end it came between going international, playing with suboptimal Finnish roster or quitting. For a while I was seriously considering going the international route, but in the end decided it was not worth the trouble for me. This question has been looming over our heads for a long time as it has always been a challenge to get a solid Finnish 20-25man roster together and this time there was no 10man option to bail us out.

 

You can check out the full post on the official site for more details, as well as a nostalgic look back at the bosses and tiers that were cleared by this fantastic guild. I invite all of you to check out the last world first that Paragon will obtain for the foreseeable future below, in their Imperator Mar'gok Mythic kill video.

      Patch 7.2 added several new Warlock Pet glyphs and we're looking at how to get them!
      Glyph of the Shadow Succubus
      There's a succubus standing near Tehd Shoemaker. She's called Syaith. If you're a scribe and /kiss her, you'll get Technique: Glyph of the Shadow Succubus. The trick is she only appears during the World Quest "Where There is a Whip...". You don't need to have Broken Shore World Quests unlocked to get it according to many reports from redditors that were able to find her.

      Credits go to redditor Sonotmethen
      Here are some tips from redditors!
      Comment from discussion Scribs can get Glyph of the Shadow Succubus for free today!. It seems you don't even need to be max level or have Inscription maxed out to get the pattern. Comment from discussion Scribs can get Glyph of the Shadow Succubus for free today!. Glyph of the Fel Succubus
      Technique: Glyph of the Fel Succubus seems to be a random drop from Cathedral of Eternal Night.
      The current version of the Fel Succubus is bugged (thanks to @Plaguestorm for pointing out), which results in a much weaker version of the regular Succubus pet in terms of damage output. It's advised not to use it until the issues get hotfixed.
      Comment from discussion Protip: Glyph of Shadow Succubus is obtainable right now..
      Glyph of Wrathguard
      Technique: Glyph of Wrathguard can be purchased from the Armies of Legionfall Quartermaster Warmage Kath'leen for 2,500 Nethershards.

      A lot of players look back fondly on the days of Vanilla, but what if we were too look back even further, let's say into the Nintendo Entertainment System era, and see what the game would be like then? Rkade Soup went ahead and made that alternate reality possible, perhaps with the help of Kairoz, and shared this great 8 bit re-imagining.

      Even though the Tomb of Sargeras won't be open for a while, we previewed all Tier 20 Mythic Sets! Which set is your favorite?
      A compilation of all Tier 20 Mythic tints coming with the Tomb of Sargeras.
      Mythic tints look better than standard Tier 20 Sets. They have more details and some sets even have cool animations. Tier 20 Sets are heavily inspired (HD versions) of existing Tier 6 Sets. Classes that haven't existed before have unique set designs (Death Knights, Demon Hunters, Monks).
