Everything must come to an end, and I'm fairly sure most people saw this coming eventually as well. Over the last 2 months we lost a big portion of our raidgroup, including some very important players who were key factors in our progress. We're currently sitting on 9 raiders if everyone that we expect to show up shows up.
Our last kill has been 1.5 months ago, the last time we cleared our FARM was over two months ago, and every week it seems we're able to kill LESS bosses. We went from world 183 gara'jal heroic kill, to a current world rank of 950+. A big reason for this, as posted above, is the loss of key players, but it's also in huge part the lack of focus and motivation. Recruitment has been extremely difficult as well. Combining this with the fact two more people will be quitting WoW in February, the decision to quit raiding completely as a guild has been made.
What this means:
- ExQuisite will no longer continue setting up raids. So everyone can xfer or join other guilds freely. I don't know how many people would remain in ExQuisite, but everyone is free to stay as a social if they so desire.
- The guild bank gold will be split evenly among the people who were part of our boosting services in Firelands and Dragon Soul. (That were still raiding with us to this day)
It was a nice 1.5 years or so, and I will probably stay in contact with most of you in one way or another. I hope to have informed everyone enough this way, and if you got any questions, feel free to skype or fb me. (or if you find me online on WoW /w me)
I will personally probably take a break from WoW, or do some casual raiding, and may return to hardcore raiding in the future, but I really have no idea what I'll do in the near future. Thanks to everyone for raiding with us and putting in the effort they did, and for sticking up with my lousy raidleading the last couple months :D.
