The Shattered Star eXiles guild on Outland is now up and running again.

The aim for this guild is to be a guild of players who are initially low to middle level, who may be new or returning for the expansion. Who wish to have fun whilst leveling/grinding and who could help each other out in the process.

WoW patch 1.12 - The Drums of War released

Posted by SSX-MS on Wednesday, August 23 2006

World of Warcraft Patch 1.12 has now arrived. Here are a few of the main highlights;

-Cross-Server Battlegrounds: For the first time in the history of World of Warcraft, you will be able to face off against players from other realms in the Battlegrounds. PvP Battlegrounds link Alterac Valley, Warsong Gulch, and Arathi Basin so that players from several realms will be combined into one huge matchmaking pool.

-World PvP: The stage is set for intense, objective-based land battles as Horde and Alliance vie for control over important strategic positions and resources around Azeroth. Head out for Silithus and Eastern Plaguelands to engage the enemy on the field.

Sithilus Grind Day 09/07/06 (WoW:EU)

Posted by SSX-MS on Thursday, July 6 2006

This sunday 09/07/06 Will be an organised guild day in sithilus. We will be completing as many sithilus quests as possible. If you have nothing better to do, or would just like to help I'd like to see you there.

Anybody with quests to finish and things to summon should meet up in cenarion hold by 12 midday BST. We will organise sorties out to finish the quests and gather materials to summon the smaller and if we have enough people, larger bosses at the camps.

We will be using vent, so treat this like an outdoor raid.

The Coming Scourge Invasion...

Posted by SSX-MS on Friday, June 2 2006

The day many have feared for years has finally come: the Scourge has launched a direct attack on the lands of Azeroth! Reports of necropolis sightings are coming in from all over the world, the massive structures looming ominously on the horizon, ready to move at Kel'Thuzad's command. A dreadful dawn is rising in the east as the Lich King's dark minions prepare to descend upon Azeroth. Soon the Scourge will march again, and this time there is no prophet to speak the warning, no gallant knight to fight the coming darkness, no legendary hero to thwart the monstrosity on the Frozen Throne.

It is up to you now to become the fire that burns against the cold, the light of hope that prevails beneath the shadow of the necropolis!

Second guild legendary weapon!!

Posted by SSX-MS on Saturday, May 6 2006

Less than 24hours after the previous news post was made and all 100 arcanite bars have been gathered and we have summoned and defeated Thunderaan - The Prince of Air.

SSX-Avator is now the proud owner of the second legendary weapon in the SSX, and one of a very very small handful of people on the entire server to own one, lets say about approx 1 of 5 people in around 12+ thousand.. You get the picture :p - "Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker!"

Big grats to Ava & a huge thanks to everyone that made it possible! <3

Below are a few images from the event;
