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.

Blizzard Entertainment and Legendary Pictures today announced that they will develop a live-action film set in the Warcraft universe. Legendary Pictures has acquired the movie rights for the game universe, and both companies are now focused on translating the Warcraft experience to the big screen.

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!

Road to Damnation

Floating above the Plaguelands, the necropolis known as Naxxramas serves as the seat of one of the Lich King's most powerful officers, the dreaded lich Kel'Thuzad.
