Out with the old, in with the new: Your new officer team!

With mythic starting next week and Onineko probably going to fail killing any new bosses for a while, I decided to stretch my creative mind and publicly roast Onineko’s new (and old!) officer team to amp everyone up for the upcoming constant and repeated wipes yeaaaaaaaaaaaaah! First up, the dudebros that got the guild this far, you’ve probably never seen them do anything because lets face it, they never did, starting in chronological order of when they became an officer...

Guild clears heroic, PUBG 1.0 releases the next day. Coincidence? Merry Xmas Onineko!

Good Afternoon Guildies and Guildettes and welcome to what may or may not be the last post of Antorus progression by yours truly, the god of healing, Roaktahl! To business first, and while we’re still not sure if you should start moving when he first casts cone of shame or when he’s finished or if you should just start moving halfway through and fuck everybody else (this is what I was doing fyi), Argus the Unmaker has been defeated in...

The GM is dead, long live the GM!

I thought this deserved it’s own post as hey, how often do we have a new Guild Master in the house? As the guy who made the awful awful mistake of promoting Ctwin to GM in the first place, and as a guy who (excluding all the people who’ve known him longer) has known Yog the longest (we in fact met in Azeroth some 12 years ago) AND as a former Onineko GM myself, I’ve declared myself the only man...

Shattered Illusions and Broken Dreams 10/11H – BROUGHT TO YOU BY FACEMASHER FLASKS!

Shattered Illusions and Broken Dreams 10/11H – BROUGHT TO YOU BY FACEMASHER FLASKS!

I’m a pretty big Warcraft fan. Not just World of Warcraft mind you, Warcraft from all the way back to the RTS games. My favourite, WCIII and its expansion The Frozen Throne, are way up there in my nostalgic childhood video game memories. Varimathras the Dreadlord…well he was a bit of a cunt, but being a Dreadlord and a Demon and all that, it’s probably not all that surprising. So when Sylvannas manipulated Varimathras into serving the Forsaken in TFT...

Early boss pulls, externals too hard to call, Turtle wins tanking award on his second day and more! 8/11H

Last night, Onineko triumphed in the face of self-imposed adversity as the guild rallied under the one person not actually in the guild to score it’s first ever win against the Coven of Shivarra! Whoop whoop! After clearing to the demon maidens in just over two hours on our second week, despite Groffrey pulling half a dozen bosses early and nearly dying. We convinced Raid Leader Yog that no, we shouldn’t learn a new boss at 10:30pm on a Thursday...

Progression and how not having Groff makes it happen – A Study by Roaktahl (7/11H)

Progression and how not having Groff makes it happen – A Study by Roaktahl (7/11H)

I’m back by popular demand (Yog asked me really nicely) with a rare website update for the good people of Onineko. I’ll start by first admitting it brings me absolutely no pleasure to point out the glaringly obvious omission in tonight’s raid, the boss, the kingpin, the guy that apparently causes all the wipes, I know him as Ctwin, but you might also know him from other characters such as Arduous, Primalous, Zealous, Tortious, Felpacket, Charlietango, Feintnow, Terrorous, Valorous, Derpcircle...

Normal KJ Dead, Heroic Sufficiently wounded, Onineko screenshotting still sucks

Normal KJ Dead, Heroic Sufficiently wounded, Onineko screenshotting still sucks

Onineko cruised into week one of Tomb with a ravenous hunger not seen since the last time Blizzard made us wait months and months for new content…so Nighthold? The one before that? Doesn’t matter…the point is, in just one week, we’ve cleared approximately 72% of the content we will realistically be able to, setting the guild up for an extremely long period of farming Tomb over and over and over and you get the point. Still, and this is likely...

Passing the torch

Passing the torch

There are some people out there who might describe my news posts as arrogant, self-indulgent and egotistical. You might even think after reading one of these posts that the guy who writes this shit must have a chip on his shoulder so big, it’d taste really good if it was chocolate and baked into a cookie. Strange, confusing imagery aside, all of these people are wrong and I’m amazing (see: This post for more), but that’s not what today is about. Today...

Whose Taunt Is It Anyway?

Whose Taunt Is It Anyway?

Hello and welcome to who’s taunt is it anyway, where the strats put you to sleep and the loot doesn’t matter. That’s right just like Shadowsoon’s DPS; it just doesn’t matter. In this instalment, we talk about what it means to wipe on moderately challenging bosses and how to save a depressing raid by clutch killing an easy boss right before the end of the night on Sunday. But first, a quick shout out to myself for achieving the Keystone Master...

Fe Fi Fo Fum

Fe Fi Fo Fum

Whoop Whoop it’s news post time~! I volunteered to write a news post to kick off the new year, new boss kills and a new outlook on life. Instead, I’ve stared at a blank page hating the fact that after years of freedom, I’m back looking at the word press admin screen (though I guess it does look a little bit prettier than last time). In any case, for the seven people that will mistakenly click a link posted in Discord...
