One of our big goals since the release of Ulduar has been to secure the Rusted Proto-drake that comes from completing the "Glory of the Ulduar Raider" achievement.

For those who aren't familiar with that achievement, it's a meta-achievement comprised of nearly all the hard mode encounters in Ulduar (with the notable exceptions of "Observed" and "Alone in the Darkness"). The title "hard modes" do them justice - they're not easy. Certainly some are easier ("Disarmed") than others ("Firefighter"), but they're altogether pretty challenging.

Vortex had been stuck on the "One Light in the Darkness" achievement for roughly a month after completing "Firefighter" back in mid-August. We've given it a bunch of attempts, but could never bring it together for whatever reason. Still, we're stubborn and kept plugging away despite a great deal of frustration and ridiculous repair bills.

Earlier this week we had cleaned up a couple sections of the fight where we were sl...

So we haven't updated here in quite a while, so let's bring everyone up to speed with what we've been up to.

Ulduar Hard modes:

We've been primarily focused on these over the last couple of months. To date, we've completed all of the hard modes necessary for the Glory of the Ulduar Raider aside from One Light in the Darkness. We've been a bit stalled on that due to vacation and school schedules, but we expect to finish up shortly and claim our Rusted Proto-drakes!

In completing the hard mode encounters for each of the 4 Ulduar Keepers (Mimiron, Freya, Thorim, and Hodir), we also gained access to Algalon. We've only spent one hour on him so far (that's all you get a week) and while we can confirm that he hits like a truck, the fight also looks quite doable as soon as we work out some details around his Big Bang ability. This isn't at the top of our priority list, but hopefully we'll have some progress here at some point.

Incidentally, this wee...

Nearly 8 full weeks of going into Ulduar and perfecting our individual skills and honing our team's coordination have passed. Having met challenges and bested them we found ourselves at the door to the master of all the chaos we had been fighting... Yogg-Saron.  An Old God with an agenda.

We, Vortex, are not without our own plans. We step up and fight. Look into the eyes of our rivals and blow them a kiss goodbye.

After some weeks of brave fighting we were able to claim Ulduar, and dismiss it's evil residents. Now we must save all of Azeroth from destruction once more and not let Algalon transmit his message of cleansing to his Titan masters.
