We decided to try the 10 man raiding road this expansion and even though guildox allows some people to do ICC 25 man normal we have 0 in the guild doing that. We just wanted to see how far we could get with our 2 nights a week raiding and also with Cataclysm in sight with same tier level for 10 and 25 man this was a good way to improve our performance.

It's like 14 total and 9 at the same time for all other fights.
But Typhoon Struggle is actually one of the only strict guilds without any 25 man kills. This may be due to them most likely sticking together the entire expansion. Recruitment is a dick in a world where you can pug 25's with ease.
With Cataclysm it will be easier to recruit with same ilevel on gear and small 10 man guilds can still compete with big guilds on their server if they got enough time.
People are really underestimating this feat, its a real shame that people don't appreciate Typhoon Struggle's achievement.
I'd do anything for a smile, holding you 'til our time is done.
Very impressive achievement, gz to them
Gz, very impressive I know ppl who can't kill him even if they have loads of ilvl 277 (me included, altough I don't have ilvl 277 )
0/2 = 0 , ∞/2 = ∞
2/0 = error , 2/∞ = error
0*2 = 0 , ∞*2 = ∞
I dont think people realize how much better the gear is in 25. 10 man stuff is normally not itemized as well and almost all of the good trinkets etc are 25 man. Also they have no shadowmournes in the raid which are a huge dps increase etc.
Gratz on the achievement. It's good to see there are some guilds who actually do strict 10man raiding. Big gz and I wish you luck for Cata.
Nicely done, no clue why people nag or trying to put their achivement down.
kills like this should be vaulted far above overgeared world firsts, with them just using the gear made for that encounter.
This is not a troll post.
It is quite an achievement to down the Lich King in only ICC 10 gear.
There should be a separate achievement to acknowledge the extra difficulty of this, like the Herald of the Titans Algalon achievement, which is still hard.
Almost every guild that has done the LK on HM did it with 264 and 277 gear which made it much easier.
If everyone has 251 gear it is harder, even with the 30% buff.
And so grats to these guys who did. All of the elitists in this thread who say "/care, I did it two months ago" should try and do this and stfu in the meantime.
Huge gratz to you guys! And hurray we've got the nr.1 10men guild on our server:P
Gratz, very impressive when you plug your brain and understand the fact that you can't overgear and needed an LK10 kill WITHOUT normal ICC25/ToC25/ToC25 hc kills (specially not the easy ones everyone can get) and the sheer lacks of itemization and trinklets in 10-only gear.
In before all the "it's because strict 10 mans are just terribads" from people that never tried anything in 10 man content without overgearing it by at least a tier.
Good luck in Cata, it sure looks promising to see 10man strict guilds and 25-man fight on the same footing.
PS : For those pretending it's "easy" without ever trying, try to get your "BiS" lists for dps/tanks from this tier or previous one or Ulduar, list the caps you need, and then try to build gear-profiles with ONLY 10 man drops.
Then understand it means : NO DBW/TAJ/Stam trinklets from Sindra or Satrina/Juggernaut's for tanks, No Death's Choice/Death's Verdict, NO Hallion's trinklet either, No Bryntroll/Cryptmaker, and quite some other things, and that, to get HC gear from the "easy" boss you HAVE to kill the LK without overgearing it (while everyone else did the easy bosses in 10/25 every week to finally face the LK10 in nearly full 264 overgearing it by a tier, and then only starting ICC10hm already overgearing them).
Since you are bad, as you said, you are either trolling or posting
retarded shit, on your 6 posts, gtfo.
Bigger than Life.
Gratz to them, despite what some of these people are posting, it is still a very good feat to have done.
Some people underestimate the power of 25Heroic gear in a 10 man set-up.
When have I eva been able to reach a mage? He just freeze me, blink, freeze himself, make big dragonhead and confuse me, blink etc etc.
Go go diminished ICC buff effect kill. I know you guys can pull it off!
Grats, and gl pulling that stuff off too if you're going for it.

Gratz but tbh if the top 25 man guilds (I mean like the top 20/25) attempted strict 10mans, they would've already downed it. Paragon and Ensidia did it with 5% buff. 25% extra damage, healing and a lot more weeks of experience than Paragon or Ensidia is pulling equal with the gear they had at that time.
TL;DR Gratz but the best guilds in the World would wtfpwn 10man strict guilds if they chose to do it.
