Another month, another tale of victory We are now in march, and if you read last month´s news you can probably guess that the guild is in a very happy place right now. Not only, did we get to post our coveted picture of a slain Tharridon, we also got to post a picture of a slain Alagan ( world first ). It does not stop there though… we have greater news still.
They said it was broken, they said it was to hard ,they said he was unkillable… But just last night Cobra got another world first kill! This time of Overlord Tyrious, this led us to be the first guild in Vanguard to complete the City of Brass questline. Three fresh world discovery on items aswell plus the ear ring reward discos ( soon on Xanadu database ), we can now call ourselves the Kings of CoB haha! The fight was pure joy to learn and defeat as a friend in guild said a while back in slightly different words though, What is better than getting new challenging content to sink your teeth into alongside your friends? Could not agree more, friends and challenge that is what it is all about.

On a more general note, with two new raid encounters and a lot of CoB progress, it is quite easy to say the guild is doing great! We repeated our feat the week after our Tharridon first so now both he and Alagan are regulars on the raiding schedule. Some of our newer members have really been flying through PoTA, it is great to see such motivation, as our vets have flown through CoB. On the agenda for the coming month as we now have forged our own way through the City, is making sure that those who want to finish CoB gets through it. In order to defeat the last undefeated mob currently in game, the 12 man encounter Toriam El Dianobis.
Our raidforce is very strong at the moment, so openings are limited, however if you came across our page and read this, we do want a Bloodmage main and could use another Ranger. Old friends and exceptional players never hesitate to drop a line =)
Until next month, best wishes to all our friends and members! // Mackster
I would like to begin with wishing all our members old and new, friends around Telon, a good 2013!
For us in Cobra 2013 is bound to be a good year as is already showing, 2013 is after all the year of the snake in the chinese calendar. The number 13 in numerology is actually not a bad luck number. 13 stands for transformation and change. This is where we find Cobra as I write this, full of good changes and transformation! Coming out of my hibernation ( so slack I still think I am a bear sometimes )
I was overwhelmed by seeing so many old friends and great players having come home to the crew! Some of you I’ve known and gamed with for 6 years now, haha! I have also been really impressed by our new members recently, I can’t remember the last time Cobra saw this motivated, interested and by all things looking capable new blood! Keep going strong guys! You are already pushing this old slacker to get more active, thanks for the random CoB night last night, great fun! Let us take pause however and try to go back in time for a year, as they say you won’t know where you are going unless you remember where you came from.
A large part of 2012 was a rough one for us, at times our only tanks where Belgamont and Koprak ( Bless you guys ) and sometimes only one of them! This of course made raiding difficult at times, however not even one member ever jumped ship during the hard times. We come from loyalty. Now? We have one of the strongest tanking teams we have ever had. This is really where Cobra needs to be as we in the past were spoiled with giants like Indy and his myrmidons, our DPS adapted and will never be truly happy unless they can go for throat from the get go, Cobras Hussah! This is showing its clear benefits in flawless Sparkles, Karax, Shendu, well all content we have… Except Tharridon, a thorn in Veltans side for to long now, but we are getting closer and soon you will get to plant your daggers in his back! Raidleading has improved a great deal, good job Alentha! As has guildleading in general, what is really nice to see is also our memberbase taking the lead and arranging things during of nights and planning events in the forum. This is a great way to get things going and making friends and in general keeping camaraderie high, keep the kfc hot!
So where are am I going with all this? Well, we have kept in shape and kept raiding and built ourselves up a long time for new content and for the first time in years, we actually have new content! Tharridon is here and yet defies us! Alagon the Dragonslayer is around the corner, and whispers reach us of Pankhor Zhi, well that is where we are going! Get buckled up and hold on to your swords because I think it is time for a new guildfirst? We have a tight crew and with superb additions, its time to mount a picture of fallen giant above this post, to all old Cobra who are no longer with us, you are always remembered, to all our new and old rooster of 2013 I salute you and hope this year will be even greater still! Together we shall have much loot and many wipes over the coming year! P.S as we get serious with Tharridon remember Krellyns wise words : Wiping is good for Morale. ^^ // Mack
Yes, we are still looking for a few dedicated raiders so we have consistent numbers/class distribution in raids. If you think you fit the mold, want to raid the end content feel free to apply or contact an officer in game or via a pm on the forum.
(Alentha/Myyn or just ask a member if any officer is hiding on some alt somewhere- they will be most happy to point you in the right direction)
