Greetings everyone! My goodness has a lot happened since we last wrote a post on the forums.

We have transitioned our main form of communication to Discord. If you are looking to join Vortex, please join us on our Discord. https://discord.gg/9nqzUY8 There you can can find all the information you need to get in touch with the current officer team, and apply for the Raid team, or to get an invite and join us as a more casual member.

As far as an actual update for the curious, we did manage to get CE Jaina, and even got a reclear for the whole raid roster to get the achievement (and a second mount!)  We're trudging our way through the current tier and are always looking for active members. We are currently not accepting new applications for the forums, so if you want to join our conversation, head on over to Discord.

May your loot be epic, and banks be full.

Sorry for the delay everyone, between work, and family free time has been short this week.

Hello Vortex! Last Tuesday after swiftly dispatching Champions and Grong, we also killed Jadefire masters.

This fight features 2 mobs that do not share health, a Mage that is constantly throwing fireballs at the tanks and stacking a nasty debuff, and a monk that mostly has raid mechanics, but the tanks swap each boss with the fire debuff.

The non intermission phases for the fight is pretty easy, healers have fire that needs to be dispelled (Thanks Mass Dispell and Revival), the mage will teleport and cast a pyroblast which the dps needs to switch to because he has a shield, and then interrupt the cast, the monk also jumps away, but just needs to be smacked with a melee attack to stop, and lastly the monk will do a multi sided strike that takes everyone but 1 tank, and 1 healer into the air and you have to to a...
