You may remember us posting a few months ago about a Herald of the Titans run. We had a great response to it but the vast majority of players ended up not being able to level to 80 so the run was postponed. We are again seeking to start this run and invite anyone to join us who's up to the challenge. We currently have 7 fully confirmed members so we are only seeking 3 more dedicated individuals for this attempt.
What is Herald of the Titans?
Herald of the Titans is a feat of strength achieved once you defeat Algalon the Observer in Ulduar in a 10 man raid while being level 80 and only wearing Ulduar 10 man gear. This means you can only have i226 armor (relic, helm, chest, etc.) and i232 weapons (shield, off-hand, main-hand, etc.) max (though anything lower ilevel is okay too). The feat grants the title "Herald of the Titans" once it is achieved.
It's not in the game still is it?
It absolutely is. This is confirmed by a GM as well as a few players profiles we reviewed after Cataclysm was released. They did change it to a Feat of Strength (it was previously an achievement) and modified it to require being level 80.
How can I join?
We are located on the Stormrage server on the Alliance side and our guild is named One Light. A player named Rare will be your main contact.
Previously we requested people not server transfer existing 80's due to not wanting to be responsible in case the run fell apart, but this time we fully encourage it to ensure participation. This is due in part to realizing the tremendous dedication it takes to get to level 80 (despite it only taking around 2 solid weeks) as well as this being our final attempt to piece this together. If you have an existing 80 you are more than welcome to server transfer to join us. Please confirm with Rare before doing this to ensure we have a raid slot open for you.
If you do not have an 80 but are willing to level one very quickly please contact us by creating a character in game and whispering Rare. He is usually online ~6:30 pm CST. We expect you to be 80 as soon as possible if you are choosing this route.
PLEASE ADD RARE TO YOUR BATTLE.NET REAL ID FRIENDS LIST SO WE CAN COORDINATE WITH YOU! His email is sinning at gmail dot com. You may also send him an email to check if slots are still open.
What classes do you need?
We currently have our tank and heal classes taken. We are looking for DPS largely so the following ranged classes are ideal:
Mage (any spec)
We will absolutely allow any other class, provided you are willing to grind dungeons with us to gear your character up.
What is the timeframe for making attempts? Will you help me gear?
We are making practice runs in mid-October with a projected finish date in late October or mid-November. We will be performing many gear runs (largely grinding ICC 5 mans for gear/JPs to buy gear with) in mid-October. We will do as much as we possibly can to help you to ensure you're ready to raid.
When will attempts occur?
Largely on the weekends. We will most likely raid Saturday around noon and go for 3-4 hours or until we're satisfied with progress.
If you have any other questions please contact Rare by email. Thank you!
