I don't let the sound of TS, because I always forget to cut the in game music when I'm recording. So to let the TS sound, even discretly I'd have to rework my audio settings every time we may have a kill. But its doable. I just need to remember to do it.

The Story of Whitestar - Chap IV : Cataclysmic Raiding

It's now five years that Whitestar had been created. Every week (or so), I'll share a Chapter of our Story. I hope our newest members will find amusing and interesting to learn how everything started.In the last blog post, we discovered one of the most creative roleplay project of Whitestar: Whitestar Magazine.

CHAP IV: CATACLYSMIC RAIDING

The goal of Whitestar was to offer two or three days of progressing raiding with a tigh-knit group of friends. Our hope was to mix casual with progress, a relaxed but serious attitude, and most problem that would be eliminated by the trust we carried for all our members. We wanted to achieve this by building a stable team of ten players that knew each others very well and could work great in team because of this. We didn't wanted to have to bench anyone, so our raiding group was almost just 10 members, with the possibility to replace a missing raider by one of our few social and roleplay members. At least this is how we had planed things...

Presentation of Whitestar
Whitestar is a social guild with a core of players who have played WoW together for a long time. We have chosen to stay a small guild, where people know each other very well and where our members can feel a sincere, international friendship. Our organisation is made to fit casual and active players. We are playing on the server DefiasBrotherhood EU

Our goal for Cataclysm

  • We want a serious, regular raid team that's close to a class run to raid and progress two evenings a week
  • We'd like to see a lot of activity where social raids, PvP and RP events take place within our guild for all our members to enjoy
  • We want Whitestar to be a place you want to call home!

We started the expansion by delving into Dungeons and Heroics together, always in group of five, we only used the relatively new Dungeon Finder to teleport in the dungeon, but we almost never "pugged". Cataclysm heroics weren't as easy as they were in Wrath of the Lych King, or later in Pandaria or even Warlords of Draenor. This difficulty was nice to train as a group, as a team, and to get to know the game style of each others.
From the members that are still active today in Whitestar, we had @Sharlena playing as a restoration druid, @Alakina as herself, well I mean... a shadow priest, @Internet as a worgen arm warrior, and myself as restoration shaman.

While we achieved to gather a nice group of commited and friendly players, we got struck by misfortune. For example @Sharlena had severe internet connection issues and I had a weird problem of FPS during fights using a lot of fire effect. Considering we were trying to progress in Blackwing Descent and that the first boss was Magmaw...it was bad. Very bad. This caused us serious issue to keep our motivations going, as we were spending so much time wiping on fights we knew for technical reasons. Our raiding group was also so tight that once someone was missing, we had no one to replace him or her.

We tried to open up our recruitment a bit, and we met some great persons.One of those person was @Chakra. But we also lost several players that weren't interested by World of Warcraft anymore or were called by real life issues.
We managed to progress in the third raiding instance until the last bosses. We worked a lot on Chogall, and we almost killed it. We worked on AlaKir, and we almost killed it aswell. I don't remember if we ever attempted Nefarian. Our raiding team stoped there, and with our raid events abandonned, most of our members stopped to play World of Warcraft. Whitestar, once more, was put in hibernation...

That's when I decided it was time to move on to other games, and made the first attempt into transforming Whitestar in a multigaming community. For the very first time in six years, I decided to stop my subscription.

Wow seems like a lifetime ago... I joined Whitestar about the moment you stopped playing Wow, so I realy never got to play with you guys. I was looking for a RP writing job and Whitestar had this amazing magazine I liked to join. But unfortunately this was ending too by that time... hmmm guess my timing really sucked ;-)

At that time I played my beloved Draenei Restoration Shaman Eärwyn on Defias. My previous main, and very first WoW character ever, was my Nelf Priest Darinx. Just looked at some pics of both of them, boy brings back some wonderful memories. Kinda miss them...

The Story of Whitestar - Chap II : An organisation of Heroes

It's now five years that Whitestar had been created. Every week, I'll share a Chapter of our Story. I hope our newest members will find amusing and interesting to learn how everything started. Last week, we learn how Whitestar had been created for the very first time.

CHAP II : AN ORGANISATION OF HEROES

Whitestar is born when Tintam Spindlefirework and Elenoza Whitestar assisted to the fall of Bolvar Fordragon along the Wrathgate battle. Tintam, was admiring her hero with such passion that she could not accept his death. She wanted create a organization of heroes which would follow the path of Bolvar Fordragon. This purpose fit the aspiration of Elenoza, who came in Northrend with her twin sister Eledeza to help the world of becoming a better place. "A place to call our own..."
Close to be called <Bolvar's fan club>, the organization had been named Whitestar because of the family tabard tailored by Eledeza. It represent a dark sky sparkled by stars. More there is stars shinning in the sky, more Hope and Joy can make the world brighter.
Want to know more about the Roleplay story of Whitestar? Check here and here

DefiasBrotherhood was back in the days, a very popular and active Roleplay server. The community was deeply involved. I didn't had roleplayed since I left Scarshield Legion and The Darnassus Sentinels, and I fancied to go back to my roots. We decided that Whitestar would be a roleplay raiding guild, a concept that was missing on Roleplay servers. An organization of heroes adventuring in dark Dungeons to save the world!
I initiated @Internet and our friends @Sharlena and Murhammies that were not roleplayers, we recruited several persons interested by the concept, and soon @Alakina joined us as Alakina Aisling the reporter adventurer!
We had regular gathering in the Inn of Dalaran, our head quarters. We hosted our first expedition in Naxxaramas, and we organized a big Tournament on the Argent Crusade Ground. That event was very successful. A lot of roleplay guilds, both from Alliance and Horde joined to compete. And Alakina was present to interview all participant and write the very first Whitestar Magazine.

But roleplaying while raiding was more difficult than we were expecting, and the interest slowly faded away. The guild that were very small, became inactive, and Internet and I missed more serious raiding. After a long period of inactivity, we decided to leave Whitestar as small quiet guild of friends, and we researched a good raiding guild that would be friendly and competent in the same time for our priestess. We found a Horde guild that pleased us both and that would allow us to progress through Icecrown Citadelle: Luminous Path. In this guild we made the acquaintance of a Blood Elf mage: @Savian.

I always try to comfort me with this idea to not let myself heart-broken when i lost my work >> reed.edu/reed_magazine/june2010/columns/… Hard work, wonderful art created to never last...

The Story of Whitestar - Chap I : A place to call our own

It's now five years that Whitestar had been created. To celebrate this and remind us old memories, every monday, I'll write a small Chapter of the History of Whitestar. I hope our newest members will find amusing and interesting to learn how everything started. I also encourage our old members to share their memories and their version of the facts!

CHAP I : A PLACE TO CALL OUR OWN

Several years ago, Azeroth.
To understand the roots of Whitestar, we need to go back in time far beyond its creation. During the Burning Crusade I was playing in a guild on The Maelstrom called Wardens. Originaly a PVP guild created and lead by the father of my kids, Wardens slowly evolved into a raiding guild under my influence. I toke in charge the organisation of our raids and to find players to better our roster. We played through The Burning Crusade as casual raiders, and started anew in Wrath of the Lych King, having some steady progress and accomplished some nice feats. In this guild I met @Internet and @Sharlena, that were still a couple back then and @Alakina. We were also playing with @Aegis-nor (aka Alyria, Starsha, Teariel or Geir for those that remember him) I've fond memories of our raiding nights in Naxxaramas, our work on Satharion and three drakes that ended by a proud victory and a mount! Our exploration of Ulduar with our 25man raids and doing achievement with the hardcore team! Some of my best memories in World of Warcraft lies with Wardens. It's also where everything started...

In the front, three priestess: Alakina, Sharlena and Aozora (Elloa). Somwhere must be Vizann (Internet)

When @Internet and I fall in love in Autumn 2009, it created a big shockwave, both in real life and in game as you may guess. Wardens dismanteled and most players where shattered in different guilds or servers. Internet and I followed Aegis and transfered to DefiasBrotherhood. It was some very happy and very dark time at once! We created a guild for ourselves that we called Whitestar. The name had a special meaning to us, and it felt a good surname for our twin Kaldorei priestess. We had no place where to be together, we were living appart, and it was troubled time. I created a forum for our personal use. So we would have a virtual space where to share ideas, projects, hopes... A place to call our own. We also decided to invite our friends from Wardens, with whom we didn't had any contact anymore.

And Whitestar was born...
