Newsletter July 17: We Beat Illidan!

July 2017
Year 3, Issue 28

Image
Hello, Readers.

This week was fairly exciting. We were lucky enough to be able to get together a contingent of people -- mostly from the guild -- to run through Black Temple Timewalking. It was a lengthy affair -- six hours in total -- but everyone had fun. There was 'singing' (and nobody kicked my husband for it either), Princess Bride quotes, a lot of larking around and overall a very positive atmosphere.

Image
Of course, it wouldn't have been a proper run without an Illidari Pepe somewhere (available if you have a Demon Hunter with Concordance).

Image
As far as the raid went we did very well, the few times we wiped everyone was positive about being able to do better the next time. One of our biggest hurdles was going into the Reliquary of Souls. Having not given thought to how its particular mechanics work, we had brought both a death knight and a monk as tanks. Given both of them rely on self healing, they weren't really the best suited to dealing with the fact you can't heal during the first phase. Fortunately, we had a paladin swing tanking so, after a few false starts, a spec change and a brief moment of despair, we managed to push on through.

Unfortunately we did end up being down a person come Illidan, as real life called our heroic paladin Cubes away, but in the end we were victorious! We defeated him in the end with persistence and cunning.

Congratulations to everyone who participated; it was wonderful to be able to raid with you all.

Hope you all have a good week.

JULY CELEBRATION CROSSWORD PUZZLE
Earlier this month Sandwalker prepared an American-themed Crossword Puzzle to help A3ers celebrate the 4th of July. We're a little late getting it out, but we thought it would still be fun for everyone to participate in! Solving this crossword could win you 1 of 5 http://www.wowhead.com/item=23767/crash ... shin-robot toys or a http://www.wowhead.com/npc=87669/hatespark-the-tiny pet!

To participate you will need to request a crossword puzzle. Crosswords are provided through OneDrive links so you can work on them in your browser without having to download any special programs. Once you complete your crossword you will let us know you have done so, as well as let us know which of the prizes you are interested in winning.

At the end of the event members who correctly fill in 25 out of 34 answers will be entered to win the prizes. Prize winners will be randomly drawn.

Wild Pet Capture Service
Above all else... A3 loves collecting pets! Collection doesn't just stop at pets that can be traded and adopted though - there are a few worlds' worth of wild pets out there waiting for collectors, too! A few of us would like to offer our love of hunting wild pets to A3 members to help them also round out their wild pet needs.

Each week (sometimes a few times each week!) we will comb zones to help members find the wild pets they are still after. We will turn a zone upside-down and inside-out looking for your pet(s) and message you once we've found them. You will then come and capture it! If you would like to take advantage of this service, but aren't available during our typical times, please don't hesitate to contact us and ask about alternative days and times.

Specifications Allowed

✔ Both Factions
✔ All Zones
✔ All Pets
✔ Any Quality
✔ Any Breed
✔ Any Specifics (color, size, etc.)

Pet Suppliers
Do you want to help supply pets for adoption that A3 needs? We have a Pet Suppliers thread where members can sign up to sponsor certain pets they are willing to supply. When the supply of certain pets starts to run low or we have an upcoming project where we’ll need more of a certain pet – we’ll send out a notification about that pet to our suppliers! There is no guess work and no 24/7 farming because we’ll let you know when we’re in need of the pets.

There are no quotas to meet when supplying the pets that you signed up for. You can provide whatever amount you are comfortable with.

New supply options were recently added! New options include common vendor and non-Legion pets.


There are 100's of supply options available, but below you will find the newest options added to the supply request sign-up sheet. These options are especially in need of suppliers right now.

Please note that the sign-up sheet is organized according to which expansion each pet was introduced in, not the expansion "zone" that they are found in.

Jump Into PvP Brawls: Deep Six– July 11-July 18
Who has your six in this six vs. six brawl? Deep Six will put you and your group to the test — running July 11-July 18.

Every other week, a new PvP Brawl will be available to players looking for something just a little different. Each Brawl will offer a variety of modes, rules, and scenic changes to the usual Battleground gameplay, and you’ll find them in the Group Finder tool (hotkey “I”) in the Player vs. Player tab. Just like Random Battlegrounds, you’ll receive a reward for achieving victory. HERE are just a few of the Brawls you can look forward to.
The Mythic Dungeon Invitational Is Coming!
World of Warcraft esports is expanding into the fast-paced, highly competitive world of Mythic Keystone dungeons with the Mythic Dungeon Invitational. We’re looking for the best of the best from around the world to battle it out for a share of $100,000.

Great Expectations, Great Rewards
We’re looking for the best players in the world, but first you need to show us you have the right stuff to compete. Teams aspiring to battle on the global stage must first push themselves through a gauntlet of Mythic Keystone dungeons, taking on increasingly difficult Mythic Keystones and earning the best scores on the Proving Grounds.

Top scoring contenders will be invited to join as one of 32 outstanding teams from around the world, competing for a share of the $100,000 prize pool—and ultimately claiming bragging rights of the #1 spot. Once chosen, 8 teams from the Americas, 8 from Europe, 8 from China, and 8 from Asia-Pacific will be tapped to face the challenge, proving they have what it takes to go all the way to the finals.

Learn more HERE

Where to Watch
If you’re an esports fan, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. You can catch the action on the Warcraft Twitch channel. Keep an eye on here or on the official World of Warcraft Esports site for more details!
Hotfixes: July 12
HERE you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to World of Warcraft: Legion. Some of the hotfixes below take effect the moment they were implemented, while others may require scheduled realm restarts to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update. This list will be updated as additional hotfixes are applied.

Connecting A3ers through Discord
Image
A3 is always looking for new and interesting ways to connect with its members. One of our greatest hurdles, though, is connecting members to each other. With everyone playing on different servers, different factions, and the limitations of the friends list – many of you have probably never had a chance to connect. We hope to use the Discord App to help solve that!

The major perk of an app like Discord is that communication is live. Meaning – you can see it on the fly (assuming you are logged in). This will be an advantage over the forum or twitter where you need to check in throughout the day. It will be especially helpful with organizing groups, sharing rare spawn information with others, or just getting to know your fellow A3ers!

A3 Forum Games
A3 has a number of forum games going for members to participate in. Members are also encouraged to start any new forum games they have ideas for. Head over to our new Games forum and jump in!

Help Support A3
Did you know that A3 has bills? It’s true! A3 has monthly and yearly bills related to the cost of operating the Agency. We earn some funds from ads on the site but most of A3’s operating costs are paid out of pocket.

Operating costs are the costs required to run the community – these do not include the costs of sponsoring giveaways. A3 is a volunteer operated project and we need the help of our members to keep the site online.
Currently, less than 4% of our members have contributed to assist with operating costs. Fewer than 1% of our members have contributed more than once.

A few spare dollars here and there can go a long way! Donations are accepted through PayPal and Patreon.

For more information about donating financially please visit our Supporter's Page.
