It had been only two weeks since we started really delving into Heroics and we're proud to announce that we've already got a few. Namely Heroic: Fallen Protectors and Heroic: Norushen. This puts us at a cool 2/14 H for the Tier and with no clear end to our adventures in Pandaria in sight, gives us fuel to continue driving towards the ultimate goal. Glory to the Guardians for restoring our Heroic legacy back to it's rightful place on our server. Let's keep up that momentum team!
This picture symbolizes the work and efforts of the entire raiding force of our Guild. We had a campaign fraught with various setbacks, surprises and sudden roster shake ups, but in the end we prevailed as we always have for years...with True Guardian Style!
Thanks to your efforts we're right back where we expected to be; challenging Heroics once again! Let's all enjoy a little rest and relaxation before we hit the intended versions of these wonderful encounters. We'll see you at the Instance portal as usual...

agreed with Wrathnruin and added that when we take our breaks people
need to step away from their keyboards to help refocus themselves.
for the future of the guild, Xirek said things look very bright.
Guardians of Fellowship will be looking forward to achieving mythic
level raiding. We will not, however, be rushing to build a team right
now. We will grow the guild organically and slowly. We need to make
sure the people we bring in to the
guild are a good fit to the team and the guild.
said not everyone will be a part of the upcoming Mythic raid team. People will
need to prove that they are the best at what they do and will need to
put in the personal effort.
new raiding levels and groups in our future, McLovin told the guild
why he was excited about the new expansion, Warlords of Draenor.
will no longer have to bench people! McLovin said with the new format
of raiding we will be able to take all the raiders that show up. This
doesn't mean we all get a free pass though. People will still show
that they can produce the numbers required to do the encounters.
said this format of raiding is just like the current Flex level in
that we can include everyone. McLovin said Flex is extremely
important to the fellowship and moral of our guild.
for Mythic level raiding, McLovin said this will be a 20-man team.

HAVE to be there. You have to be present, ready to raid. We will not
succeed if people don't show up.”

day out. People understood the fights and understood each other. If
you want to be on the 20 mans and be number one on the server, you
have to be here,” McLovin said.
new version of the Flex night will be introduced into the schedule
soon – Flex Plus. Flex Plus is the creation of the Guardians of
Fellowship officer core. The idea is to provide a chance for farm
content to be knocked out, on regular raid levels, giving a chance
for flexers to get better gear.
Plus is going to be awesome for the hardcore flexers. This gives them
the chance to knock down regular bosses and get higher level loot,”
meeting wrapped with the usual lightning round of "What's Hot.”
It's been a banner month for the Guild since the launch of Patch 5.4 - Siege of Orgrimmar.
Large majority of the Team acquired their Legendary Cloaks from Wrathion!!
We launched an extremely successful FlexRaid event that remains a fan-favorite each week!!
Weirdbeard established a great new service, the Raider Prep Tab for easy access to upgrades and supplies
We're tearing up the Progression charts. In only 3 weeks time, we're looking at polishing off a total of TEN bosses for the tier thus far. This isn't the best we've ever done but I'd say it's pretty damn close.
The only question on your Leadership's mind is...how long till we see our old friend the Heroic Skull door again? I promise you this, keep up at this pace and enthusiasm and you'll be hailed Conqueror of Orgrimmar sooner than you think.
Rally Guardians for once again, our time has come. Let's finish Pandaria strong!
