I feel that Shadow Council has too rich of a history to let it fade in our memories.
So what i propose, is to have players write down their fondest memories from each xpak on this beloved server. RP, PvP, PvE. Players that inspired you, players that you hated(try to keep it positive hate) Players that you feared. Ect.
I'll start with Vanilla WoW. And the guilds Black Omen and Exiled. What is there to say about those two guilds? Power, fear, respect, hate, love. If you were going for HWL you were in those guilds.
I hit 60 after a number of the members hit HWL. If you're newer to WoW and you think entry level to PvP sucks today, try a team of Warlords and High Warlords with full WL gear and the Hand of Rags smashing your face in with amazing tactical precision.
That damn hand of Rags still haunts my dreams.
Back before cross realm BG's it was server only BG's and EVERY TIME people saw it was BO or Exiled we would have 5 people /afk right off the bat. Now that is fear.
I took the last year off of WoW for a little break, upon my return I was pretty pumped to hear That Nightside and Co got HWL again in the new RBG system. That's a nice big middle finger to the arena elitist that said GM's and HWL's weren't skilled.
I will add more memories depending how well this thread does.
