<Akai Soubi> is currently looking for more raiders!
We're a horde progression-oriented 10-man raiding guild! If you'd like to learn more about us, read on, or feel free to browse www.akaisoubi.net/apply =D
We raid Tuesday and Wednesday nights from 7:30-11pm PST, and Sunday night from 7-11pm PST. We're committed for excellence, and looking for players who can demonstrate that they're at the top of their game.
We are currently seeking additional members!
We want reliable, mature, skilled players who view loot as a tool to improve their game, and not as the goal of raiding.Akai was originally formed in July 2005 as a 40 man guild. We've been consistently raiding 25 man content since before I joined in March 2008. Now we've moved on to heroic 10 man content. In my time, Akai has gotten a few notable 25 man accomplishments:
Led server progression in Sunwell, getting Entropius to under 10k before the big nerf (grah! So close!)
Realm first Algalon. Missed realm first Yogg+0 by less than a week (grah again, but grats to the guys who got it =D)
Realm first H Anub.
Realm first LK, were working on H LK when 4.0 happened.
Realm first H Halion. <3 Cutters.
Led server progression in T11, getting down every H boss but Al'Akir and ascendants before T12 was released. <3 Sinestra, but not her wrack ><
Server first H Baleroc (before the big nerf =D), hitting p4 H Rag before DS came out. (We wound up getting server first Rag after clearing DS, but that doesn't count the same =p)
Server first Deathwing.
And since our transition to 10s we've gotten server firsts too! Namely:
All H DS fights after mor'chok, including realm first Madness.
Every T14 normal and heroic fight, ending patch 5.1 with 13/16 down.
So yeah, I think its fair to say we're semi-hardcore. We want to stay at that level. Raiding is fun for us, and we intend to keep it that way. To do that, we don't want to do it more than 3 nights a week and we don't want to force people to do crazy things to get server firsts. Its not a race, its just nice to be on top when we are. To keep raiding fun, though, we also have to keep doing well. We're not content to just farm things, we always want to be progressing and tackling harder content. That means every person in the guild should be ready and willing to give it their all, every night, and prepare outside of raids as needed.
If this sounds like where you'd like to be, we're waiting to hear from you!
Bump for updated recruitment needs.
Also, heroic Hagara is mean. She's all "rawr" an we're like "blarg!"
Still, for the first half a night of progress, I'm pretty pleased with how its going, frost phase is easier than I had expected. Also, shouldn't grounding totem like, negate the lightning storm? I think so!

that's the real one alright =-)
I'm thinking of maybe dropping EP for Blessing of the Eternals for hagara and warmaster, but I'm not positive yet. I'm pretty confident in the spec for most other fights. TC is kindof meh on ultraxion, but so is BotE on that fight too, so imo its a wash.
Also, mastery heavy build + 4 set bonus or lust or blue buff on ultraxion = happy times. I enjoy my 120k crit heals on yor'sahj that proc 40k awakenings =p
Bump for Zon'ozz down! Fun fight, good times. I enjoyed the healing challenge quite a bit (and being carried by our two holy pallies =p).
Yeah, the nerfs really helped. We were planning to go 7/7/7/5, and wound up going 7/5/5/5, which clearly helps quite a bit, to be sure. That said, its not like the 5% trivialized it, I'm proud of our work there =-)
I'd guess cause AS has a reputation to be gentlemen and lovely ladies and you posting a thread like that just makes you look like a D#$@$#.
Bump for ongoing caster dps needs! The spots are filling up fast!
Got warmaster to the end of p1, but didn't quite push into p2. Fun fight, pretty tricky. P1 wouldn't be so bad if they wouldn't do onslaught, sapper, and drake harpoons at the same damn time ><
At least, pretty tricky with only 3 ranged =p
