Greetings Catastrophe members!


It's time for our weekly recap, and despite a decline in online players due to the release of Diablo 4, we remain optimistic and look forward to the return of our guild members.


Echo Team faced a challenge this week, struggling with Heroic Zskarn on their first night. However, they didn't let that setback discourage them. On the second night, they made a remarkable comeback, one-shotting Heroic Zskarn and Heroic Magmorax. They also made significant progress on Heroic Echo of Neltharion, bringing him down to 35% in phase 3. We have no doubt that they will conquer him this week and continue their journey by taking on Heroic Scalecommander Sarkareth.


Team Mean Girls had a successful first night, as expected, clearing 8 out of 9 bosses in Heroic Aberrus. However, their momentum slowed down when they faced Heroic Scalecommander Sarkareth. They reviewed their strategy, made adjustments to the roster, and managed to bring the scalecommander down to 12% before the night ended. They are determined to close the gap and achieve a complete victory this coming weekend.


Recruitment for additional raiders to strengthen both teams for mythic raiding is still in progress. We actively seek skilled players to join our ranks as we prepare for more challenging content.


In the world of mythic+ dungeons, we encountered a new affix called Afflicted. The Afflicted Souls posed a significant challenge with their ability called Afflicted Cry, which reduces haste to all players by 100% for 10 seconds if it goes through. To combat this, healers played a crucial role by dispelling the Afflicted soul or directly healing it. Many groups found success by creating compositions with multiple dispels, allowing healers to use their dispels for other mechanics found throughout the dungeons. We commend everyone for adapting and finding effective strategies.


In other news, we have more achievements to celebrate! Congratulations to Rawrxdd, Amburrito, and Örÿ (myself) for obtaining the Keystone Hero achievement. Your success serves as an inspiration to the rest of the guild. Remember, if a humble resto shaman like me can achieve it, so can you!


We hope that everyone in Catastrophe has a fantastic week ahead, filled with progress, teamwork, and enjoyment.
