April fools joke a day early?

Paragon and Premonition will merge for Cataclysm
According to a news post on Paragon and Premonition websites, both guilds will merge in Cataclysm to create a new entity : Paranition.Some of you have heard rumors about it, and today we're able to announce it officially: we are moving to US servers and merging with Premonition to join forces in Cataclysm.

While we had a very successful run in ICC, we lost the race for the first kill on all the eight first bosses, which were in fact killed before the EU servers came up. Thus, the only way to aim for perfection is to play on the US servers. This will enable us to start raiding over 12 hours earlier. To further strengthen our force, we opted to look for a partner to merge with; we chose to present Premonition with this partnership suggestion for their excellent performance and connections.

Statements were released from one of the leaders from both guilds:

When looking for US partners, Premonition was an obvious choice for us. We've had friendly relations with them for a while, and they're good guys that we'll enjoy playing with. Furthermore, their excellent track record guarantees that we will have the absolute optimal player setup for any and all challenges that Cataclysm will offer. Their connections also aided us in our search for sponsorship, and we look forward to working with them to further push the limits of World of Warcraft raiding. (Paragon / Lazei)

Paragon is an exceptional raiding guild that we've had a good relationship with in their brief but highly successful time as a guild. When the leadership of Paragon approached us with this idea, we were, of course, happy to work with them for a mutually worthwhile merge. We are very excited to help make the #1 raiding guild in the world the strongest it can be - by expanding the roster for the capability of maximum learning in the smallest amount of time. (Premonition / Xav)

In the spirit of a true merge, the new guild will be called Paranition. You can find us raiding on the lag-free realm of US-Sentinels.

We're also very, very proud to present our new main sponsorship deal with Unilever, most known for their AXE grooming product brand.

NEW YORK (01 Apr 2010) AXE is giving a big boost to guys that feel the need to RAID! The iconic leader in men's care, in partnership with Blizzard, launched the brand's new product line: AXE Sunwell - Get Energized! Studies conducted about gamers concluded that this segment was completely untapped by any grooming products. The Sunwell line is targeted for appearance-conscious gamers that understand the social aspect of gaming. AXE products will now ensure that you stay uniquely fresh even during 24-hour raiding sessions and LAN-parties.

Many thanks to our sponsors; this merge would not have been possible without those private English classes to overcome the language barrier. Also many thanks to all our supporters, and see you on the US servers - fresh!

This is quite obviously an April Fools joke (I hope). As it is April 1st in Finland atm where Paragon is located. Much better than some I've seen in past years!

10 man BiS lists

After trolling elitist jerks for 45 minutes looking for strict-10 BiS lists, I walked away empty handed. I'm sad that the greater theorycrafting community doesn't consider or research our particular approach to progression. I'm not going to get into which is harder - obviously it is more challenging to coordinate 25 people; however things are just as hard when your approaching a boss with the ilvl gear it was tuned for. I recently put together what i believe is my BiS for retribution for ICC hardmodes - and thought "HEY! YOU HAVEN'T UPDATED IN LIKE FOREVER111!11" So here you go.

Projected DPS - 11,140 (11,697 with current ICC buff)

Ruby Sanctum

Read some confirming/info from Zarhym - and i'm quite upset that i will not be getting a skeleton bear mount from Zul' Gurman. The new raid instance will be Ruby Sanctum: a single boss encounter that will have sub bosses that drop emblems of frost (ala Sarth). However unlike Sarth (unfortunately) there will be no gradually esclating hard mode mechanic (1-2-3 drake). My guess hard mode will give the boss simply an HP/Damage boost and one or two new abilities and/or adds.

Most of the new blue posts on the subject can be found here.

My first night with Vortex

I had been away from the game for approx. 6 months. I'll keep this post short and just post a screenshot that should say it all.
Kae posted this on Dreambound (Thank you for the highlight by the way!) She has me pretty well pegged! I'm also very glad she took the screenshot because i was too busy trying to figure out how i was going to get 225 badges for my 3 Trophies.

On the off chance you did NOT find yourself here by way of Dreambound, here is an excellent Sindragosa 10 man strat written up by Kae.
