Aphorism gatecrashed the Nighthold Garden Party!


From his youth, the nightborne Tel'arn was fascinated by plant life: the resilience and adaptability of weeds, the ability of simple grass to harness the power of the sun..

Aphorism crashed the party, took another scalp, and made good use of the herbs provided by the Botanist. #420

Another fun fight, looking forward to some challenges now! Great job team!

The nightborne Spellblade Aluriel defeated by Aphorism - 5/10 Mythic




Spellblade Aluriel was adept in the schools of Fire, Frost and Arcane, but she was no match for the school of hard knocks taught by the Aphorism raid team.

Half way through Mythic Nighthold now and we're having a lot of fun, Spellblade fell in our first proper night on her, and we're ready for the next challenge!

Numbers Mate.. DPS Check Krosus Down!



Since Krosus can't leave his 'Yellow' water we did wonder why we bothered fighting Krosus in the Nighthold in the first place.. Should we just leave him to soak in his bath tub.. nah.

We're not a guild to shy away from challenges so figured we'd rock up, hit him around a bit, and then loot his corpse (after cleaning said items from the piss-stained water).

A really good kill in the end, and a lot of low-wipes leading up to it.  A superb guild effort and a kill we're really proud of, everyone played a really important part in our progress if they were on the kill or not.

Great job guys and gals!

2 Bosses 1 Raid. Mythic Anomoly & Trilliax Down.



The doors have been battered in and we're working through Mythic Nighthold, the Anomoly and Trilliax both died the other night*!  Who would think that if you do mechanics that bosses die.. =) 

Aphorism is really proud to have welcomed some old and new friends from the Sunstrider guild <Mythic>.  With both <Mythic> and <Aphorism> having recruitment and roster issues, we looked at a way forward to meet the new challenges in pve content and how we could create opportunities for both guilds taking into account both our long histories and rosters.

Our guilds share the same philosophy and ethos, mature, fun raids, progress, end-game pve content, and most importantly friends, people we choose to share our game time with.

Mythic was created back in the vanilla days of WoW, and it's had a long journey through Lightning’s Blade, Shattered Halls, and Sunstrider EU.  It's had a lot of players through the whole World of Warcraft journey, from Alliance to Horde and vise versa. 


We are very pleased to welcome <Mythic> as Aphozoids, and may we make more great Sunstrider history in the future!





*It was a bit vague after all of the Spectral Grog so I can't place what day it was.  Maybe a Thursday, no, we don't raid Thursdays, it was definitely a Wednesday or a Sunday.  I'm sure of that.  Pretty sure.  I suppose one could alt-tab, but that means more time in here and not getting a bad ass artifact skin from those challenges.  There's nothing else to do, not like I need billions of AP for artifact traits or anything.  Jeez, i'm rambling, that's nice coffee.   It was a Wednesday or Thursday.

Skorpyron defeated, Nighthold Mythic opens up for Aphorism!


Our first guild raid in Mythic Nighthold and we were faced with a monstrous, armored, Nightwell infused Scorpid. 

It was a little bit like that Celebrity Jungle thing, but we're not morons mostly not morons.  Oh, and we killed it, and it dropped some non-titanforged clobber.

Really nice to be back in Mythic raids and dealing with some fun and tough encounters again.

We're still looking for a few more players to improve our roster for Mythic raiding.  Email our google group with the link in join us, or email Teh. teh@aphorism-guild.org

Dragonkillers! 4/7 Mythic Emerald Nightmare


It was real good to catch up with our old friends Lethon, Emeriss, Ysondre and Taerar.

Unfortunately they were corrupted and quite frankly poor company, so we killed them and ate bacon.

Nice kill guys!

"Let's go grab us a pic-er-nic basket..." 3/7M


It turns out he wasn't smarter than the average bear..

I love this fight, simple but fun, like me.  I think the guild agreed as we killed him in less than half a raid.

Excellent execution and good team kill Aphorism.

That brings  us to 3/7 Mythic Emerald Nightmare now and Dragons are up next!
