Despite Elisande being the harder boss, we actually spent fewer wipes to get her down in comparison to Star Augur (82 against 85 - we even spent about an hour longer in combat against Augur despite Elisande being the longer fight!). I guess it was just more frustrating to some as the wipes were because of mechanics present in heroic (that just hit for a whole lot more) whereas most of the wipes on Augur were because of mythic-only mechanics.
I'd say our next target is Gul'dan, but that brings me to the other news section of the post. Unfortunately we have shed a few of our players to Orbis and for now it's going to be hard to say for sure what's going to be happening to the future of ExC. I want it to stay around as it's been a good six years through the highs and lows - even though admittedly I did have a break from the guild during it, Swain had done a fantastic job in my stead! A post will be going up within the next few days discussing what we've talked about as officers about how to bring the guild into its next age.
Speaking of officers, unfortunately because of real life commitments Ganewate and Ginamarie have offered to step down from their roles (they mentioned this in officers' chat before we had raiders leaving for Orbis, so it's not as a result!) so I would like to thank them for their time and the effort they've put in both long- and short-term and wish them both the best in their RL distractions. They'll still be around (hopefully!) they just won't be doing as much stuff to do with the game out of the game now.
Regardless, it was a good tier to finish world top 1300 on (with a little thanks from Orbis for the Helya kill) and our Elisande kill has the following the thank: Tanks: Excitedsoup, Ganewate Healers: Barrypepper, Ginamarie, Jonbear, Ston Melee: Caeldir, Copperwar, Fenvizz, Hárkonnen, Morsho, Piingu, Realzombie, Redmst Ranged: Aeshmi, Blissey (Orbis), Chipmunk, Dimi, Giveusapet, Swáín

Even with the recent set backs, this expansion has contained the most productive raiding progression I've had in my 10 years of WoW and I want to thank everyone for it (however long or short I've known you). As soup said in the original post, hopefully people will stick around for a bit so that we can see where we will move on from here. Swain xo
