SSX defeat the Twin Emperors!

After being on only the second night of attempts, yesterday evening the SSX on Outland defeated the Twin Emperors in the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj!

Only C'Thun is left to defeat (minus the optional bosses) who is the final boss in AQ40 and also the hardest boss currently ingame.

Grats! ;D


Rapid Growth For The FFXI Group

After being up and running for just about 3 weeks the Final Fantasy XI group can proudly report that we have almost quadrupled our numbers. From two or three people actively playing the game we now have around twelve members, and the group is still growing.

We wish congratulations to the group and its members for this great success, and may it continue to expand as time goes on.


FFXI Garrison Event!

The members of the Final Fantasy XI group have been invited to a Garrison event in West Saru at 1PM EST (6PM GMT) on June 11th.

In order to attend the event you will need to be at least level 20, and be prepared to repel several waves of Beastmen.

To sign up for the event and for more information, see this thread


The Coming Scourge Invasion...

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!

Final Fantasy XI Group Up and Running!

Within the last few days we've launched our latest group within the SSX, Final Fantasy XI. Several of us are venturing out into the world of Vanadiel (some of us are veterans there, others new) to seek adventure, and we now have enough to make the group official and start our own Linkshell.

Our group website has also now been completed and can be found here where you'll be able to find the latest updates about the group, a list of group members and their current skills, and screenshots.

Comments can be left on the group forum, as can applications if you wish to join us in our adventures across Vanadiel.

Second guild legendary weapon!!

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;

-SSX Summon Thunderaan

-SSX Defeat Thunderaan

-SSX-Avator receives his legendary weapon. - Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker!


Assistance needed to help complete Thunderfury quest

The SSX got lucky tonight and had the second bindings of the windseeker drop, all Ava needs to gather now are 100 arcanite bars before he can get the Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker!!!

If anybody is able to help in anyway possible he would greatly appreciate it, whether it be the bars themselves, crystals, money or even offering arcanite transmutes.

We should soon have a second lengendary weapon in the SSX!
