Well, like most of the other guilds, we eagerly anticipated the latest EQ Expansion, Rain of Fear, and have been super busy with the whirlwind of new expansion activity.  We have now officially cleared Tier 1 of EQ as well as burning down our first raid in Tier 2 (more on that later).  Special shout out to everyone who participated in our Surprise Saturday Incentive program as well as Zaborus, Mako, Kinvaras, and Noteefs, who were our first to ding 100; as well as Krink for his assistance the last few days.  There are many others who deserve my thanks and appreciation as well.  While there are certainly several items that need Sony's immediate attention to correct, overall the launch has been fairly smooth and there are many features that we really appreciate.  Most notably, the bumps of both real xp and AA xp on all the missions makes them a heck of a lot more enjoyable to complete!  Without boring you with the gory details, and also because I am both sick and tired; as well as needing to get back to the grind, this short note will have to suffice, but I will leave you with a collage of pictures provided by our lucky treasure troll, Bidaum.
