Duskguard Hits the Road

Sentinels,

After almost five years on Sentinels, Duskguard is leaving for greener pastures. Having laid waste to raid bosses from A to D (Attumen to Deathwing) and seeing our raid team go from ~10 to ~40 and back down to ~10 again, we're heading off to a new server in hopes of continuing our progress in a more fertile environment. As many others from Sentinels have already done, we're moving to Wyrmrest Accord, effective immediately.

Sentinels has been a great server for us. It's been a sleepy, friendly server since day one, and it's been a pleasure to play with such a nice bunch of folks (and to forum browse with some of Azeroth's truly great forum trolls). Duskguard began raiding in early Burning Crusade era, but many like myself have been here in one form or another for even longer. I was chopping heads off trolls with Eternus and Reckless Will before the gates to Ahn Quiraj were opened, without a break since. So to everyone we've known and played with, /salute and /farewell!

And if anyone else makes the trip to Wyrmrest Accord, give us a buzz. So long, Sents!

So this is the next phase of Sentinels. First the "I'm done playing the game forever" phase a year ago, now a "Sup. Going to WrA. See ya'll lates."

Can't say I blame anyone. The pool for raiders is becoming smaller and smaller. Though I don't RP, may in my guild do and it seems as RP is disappearing as well. I'll miss Duskguard, as many of their members are great players and people. /salute

It's a shame to see a good group of raiders go, but it is understandable. Best of luck.

Good luck over there folks!

I remember raiding as a filler with you guys on The League's off-nights when you folks were working through T5 content. Evellynada, Ottilie, Elyaes, Athidus, Aislin, Phrynia, Mie, Arakal, and Strawberri were among the names I remember or raided with in the later months/years.

Precisely.

And to all Duskguardians, I wish you continued success. I will definitely say hello to you over there.

Indeed. Two other guilds will be following Duskguard onto WrA. One of them, I can say I will be happy to see go. The other, a smaller guild but one that will be missed none the less.

I know we had no burning desire to leave Sentinels - we put it off for quite a while trying to avoid it, in fact. But given our fairly strict recruiting standards and the declining population on Sentinels, we just weren't able to stay afloat here any longer. I'm sure Sentinels will continue to survive - it will just be able to support fewer guilds as the population continues to decline.

Raintola, I definitely remember you and several other folks from The League who helped us out in T5 (when I was Arakal). Duskguard was fairly new then, and struggling to make the jump from 10 man raids to 25 (pretty much mandatory at that time), and I think the backup from you guys in making that transition really helped us. So thanks!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes. I directed a few interested parties to check out Vitality as I think that is one of the most similar guilds to Duskguard these days. Good luck to everyone who is staying on Sents - we still have our level 1 guild here as a home for our alts so I am sure many of us will be on to say hello from time to time. Cheers.

Most of my toons on Sentinels are alliance so I never had the chance to raid/pvp with Duskguard. I DO remember pvp'ing against you guys in Wintergrasp and various other places in Northrend. I have a lot of respect for your guild and wish you the best of luck!

Ah, it's a shame to see you go. I really enjoyed raiding with you guys during your open nights, and wish I could have gone with you more often. Good luck guys, maybe I'll make an alt over there to join you and the other Sentinels.
