Recruitment

Recruitment is OPEN for one Healer (ideally a Monk, and only a Paladin or Druid if truly exceptional) for raiding, and in general to Social/Casual applicants, and CLOSED for Tanks for raiding.

Ebon Flame is currently open for general recruitment for good people who will fit well within our ranks and possess the ability & ambition to raid regularly with us in Legion at Heroic level within the Flex structure that permits variable raid sizes, progressing onto a more structured & formal Mythic team (however, we have a solid team of Tanks for raiding at this time) - as well as more casual, non-raiding people.

Truly exceptional applicants will always be considered - be prepared to make your case. :-)

The wind shrieked like a child in pain.

Ignorant of the tempest raging outside, a lone figure knelt before an ancient altar sheltered by cold, saronite walls. Despite the storm that seemed engulfed the structure, the interior was deadly calm, allowing the figure to concentrate wholly on the rythmic sounds of his own breathing.

His meditation was broken by a sudden gust of wind, sweeping through the benches, snuffing out the few candles that littered the room, providing the faint illumination. The figure's long, elegant ears twitched, as they registered the sound. The wind died as suddenly as it came, leaving the room once again in deadly silence. His concentration broken, the figure rose, the heavy platemail he wore creaking in protest of the motion. He opened his eyes, once burning with bright amber, now glowing with an unnatural blueish hue. His glaring eyes surveyed the now dark room, trying to pinpoint the source of the eerie gust of wind. It was more of a motion out of sheer habit, for his heightened other senses have long ago registered the other presence in the room with him.

Welcome to the Ebon Flame!

Ebon Flame is a raiding guild with a strong social and community aspect based on Moonglade, an RP-PvE realm in the EU.

We are one of the oldest guilds in the realm, formed in December 2005. Today, Ebon Flame is a long-standing & successful guild with active recruitment, resources in the form of a focused & well stocked/funded guild bank accessible to members, and an active Officer corps.

We have until recently fielded two 10-man raiding teams. One was a progression raiding team that asked a high performance level from its members, and the other was a more social raiding team that wished to progress through current content and who are not afraid of a little challenge along the way. In the run-up to Warlords of Draenor, we have consolidated into one raiding team - and we will continue with one team into the expansion, hitting everything all the way up to & including Mythic.

As well as our raiding successes, we pride ourselves on the stable and mature community we have built up over time and welcome like-minded people to join us as social members. We encourage all other kinds of activities to take place, from PvP in arenas & battlegrounds to role-playing to PvE in instances and doing dailies together. We always aim to get to know each other better, challenge ourselves against the greatest of challenges, and ultimately enjoy the game all of us have chosen to play.

Mythic Hellfire Assault & Iron Reaver Beaten

10 June 16, by Sofiana

After some considerable time and a number of issues affecting numbers of raiders, on the evening of Thursday the 9th May 2016 with less than twelve weeks to go until Legion launches, Ebon Flame made it's first successful foray into Mythic Hellfire Citadel - and dropped the first couple of bosses. People seemed to generally enjoy the renewed challenge and chance to stretch their skills in tough, progression content again for the first time in months. :-)

Furthermore, following this victory Ariethar was awarded the single Ironhoof Destroyer to honour his services to Ebon Flame in leading raids since the start of the Warlords of Draenor expansion. Thank you very much for all your efforts to the benefit of us all, Ari! :-)

Heroic Archi Looks Good From Here, Too

20 November 15, by Sofiana

The culmination of many nights of work and wipes happened on the evening of Thursday the 19th November, 2015. We knew what we were doing, and all it took was a little extra "punch". :-)

First place was won by Devavictrix, second was Susaku, third was Chiikiraa with myself a finalist runner-up. Thanks ever so much also to Bragdash & Faelwen & Catla for taking part, to everyone who showed up to spectate, to Merri & Llompski for judging, and to Shayden for organising and judging! :-)

Mythic Garrosh Defeated

27 October 14, by Sofiana

Hell yeah. :-) Mythic Garrosh Hellscream falls to awesomeness - and is promptly turned into diced meat chunks by Heba. Clearly he gets better for his trial...



Even More Conquering of Orgrimmar

22 September 14, by Sofiana

Ebon Flame stands over the corpse of a formerly-wriggling Heroic Malkorak. Feels good. :-)

The Future

14 July 14, by Sofiana

Ebon Flame has updated it's recruitment status to "generally open to all classes and roles", aiming to build up membership and our raiding team in preparation for the Warlords of Draenor expansion and the Mythic raiding it will bring, and the new opportunities for renewed enthusiasm and playing online with as many friends as we can make and keep in this alternate Outland/Draenor that Garrosh Hellscream has fled to...

More Conquering of Orgrimmar

15 April 14, by Sofiana

At the foot of the massive & vacant throne of Garrosh Hellscream stands the victorious members of Flame, posing heroically while coming-down from a substantial adrenaline-high. Congratulations! Also thanks to Bimse & Heba.

Thok falls to Flame

3 March 14, by Sofiana

And just like that, after interminable frustration, with a great roar suddenly the enormous beast Thok fell to cries of satisfaction & sighs of relief from the assembled group of Flames who until a moment ago had been hard pressed fighting for their lives.

Guild Challenge Conquerors: Gold

21 February 14, by Tiaana

After many months of work a dedicated group from the guild finally cleared every challenge mode dungeon on Gold, unlocking challenge mode armour, and Thundering Serpent Hatchings from the guild achievement, which can be bought from the Guild Vendors, so go pick those up pet collectors!. Thanks and congratulations to those involved.



Ebon defeat Kor'kron Dark Shaman (Heroic)

5 February 14, by Faela

Just when we thought we had defeated Garrosh for good, he and his lieutenants rallied and we found we had to once more battle our way through the streets of Orgrimmar...

The Valley of Strength bristles with orc corpses and the stench of blood. The Kor'kron had mounted a strong defence, but in the end, their forces had been a poor match for the magics wielded by Deva Victrix, Bimse, and Heba. As the other adventurers catch their breath, Ortias bends down over the corpse of a treasurer from the bank and takes a ring of keys from his belt, which he uses to free a group of imprisoned shaman from their cages.

Now they must deal with the two shaman leaders and their twisted grip on the elements in order to break through into the city proper. Zenvon scratches a rough map of the area into the dry red earth.

"They will be too much for us to deal with together," he says, "but if we can separate them, we may have a chance." He motions to a far corner of the Valley, away from the main area.

"Chiikiraa will distract Kardris here whilst Faela and Llompski lead Haromm over there, with Ayalin and Angelique for support."

The group moves into position, hoping that by dividing, it will be the shaman that are conquered, not them.






Team Ebon defeated Kor'kron Dark Shaman (heroic) on Monday 3rd February, making us 8/14. Our next target will be Malkorok.
