The Sleeper Sleeps Again

The Sleeper Sleeps Again

Resolute steamrolled Crystallos in one night, 1-shotting all the encounters.  With factions, chase loot, new lvls and AA’s, SoF has been an amazing expac.

Mayong and Solusek Ro Defeated

Mayong and Solusek Ro Defeated

August 15

The Buried Sea Launches

The Buried Sea Launches

 

Power sources, Guild banners, Campfires, Fellowship XP and getting to kill Mayong, again.  What more could we want?

June 1

Lethar and Beltron Defeated

Lethar and Beltron Defeated

Resolute conquered both the dragons of Ashengate and the giants of Frostcrypt, putting an end to Lethar and Beltron’s rule.  The Serpent’s Spine has been broken!

The Serpent’s Spine Launches

TSS is finally here, with the excitement of character level 75, new spell tiers, chest loads of better loot, and best of all–out of combat regeneration!

April 9

Ayonae Ro Defeated

Ayonae Ro Defeated

After an amazing collective effort with other guilds on Phinigel, Resolute obtained the keys to the Tower of Dissonance.  Ayonae Ro and her Mad Choir have been silenced!

March 28

Prophecy of Ro Launches

Prophecy of Ro Launches

While TSS is perceived to be the next big milestone in the eyes of Resolute, we’re excited for some new content in PoR to diversify our raid nights!

February 11

Mayong Mistmoore Defeated

Mayong Mistmoore Defeated

Resolute settles into Dreadspire Keep as our new headquarters after vanquishing Mayong Mistmoore and his cohorts.  However, Mayong’s influence has spread and his corrupted await us in PoR!

January 31

Depths of Darkhollow Launches

Depths of Darkhollow Launches

New content and this time it’s stuff we’re actually looking forward to!

Vishimtar the Fallen Defeated

Vishimtar the Fallen Defeated

2 measly days… 1 raid day, done! NEXT!

December 6

Dragons of Norrath Launches

Dragons of Norrath Launches

A new expansion releases on Phinigel on this day with much anticipation! This one shall prove to be the most challenging of them all, right?

September 17

Overlord Mata Muram Defeated

Overlord Mata Muram Defeated

Just a tad over 4 days into the expansion, Resolute knocked out Overlord Mata Muram. Yep, 4 days… Great OMM fight and everybody was very psyched to win.

September 13

Server First Level 70’s!

Server First Level 70’s!

Our crack crew of Rovell-led grinders hit 70 in just about 6-6.5 hours of server launch. Hightankz and Zlam were server 2nd and 3rd level 70 Warriors. Bhikkhu, Guzzle, Rovell and Zanadar were the server’s 1st level 70 Monk, Cleric, Berserker and Necromancer.

September 13

Omens of War Launches

Omens of War Launches

Gates of Discord felt kind of short with just two months of it but the promise of new levels, AA’s and content in Omens of War had everybody excited and ready to go!

July 27

Zanadare Completes Resolute’s First BIC!

If there’s a quest of substance, expect Zanadare to be at its forefront.  Congratulations Zana on the guild’s first BIC!

July 27

Zun`Muram Tkarish Zyk Defeated

We returned for Zun`Muram Tkarish Zyk and this time he wasn’t prepared for Resolute.

July 25

Tunat’Muram Defeated

Tunat’Muram Defeated

While the mobs in Tacvi hit ever-so-hard, Resolute made quick work of the zone on its first attempt, dispatching every boss, including Tunat’Muram, and reaping the rewards.

 

July 23

High Priest Nkosi Bakari Defeated–Welcome to Tacvi!

While our Zun`Muram Tkarish Zyk attempt didn’t go as planned and wouldn’t reset, earlier we had killed High Priest Nkosi Bakari which allowed for alternative access into Tacvi. See you soon Z’MTZ, we’ll be back…

July 20

Server First 65 Berserker!

Server First 65 Berserker!

Rovell and his crazy crew were back at it and leveled the server’s first level 65 Berserker in under 10 hours.

July 19

Gates of Discord Launches… Late!

Gates of Discord Launches… Late!

After several months of raiding LDoN, a very lackluster expansion at best, the long anticipated Gates of Discord expansion was supposed to launch at 5pm ET. It seems once again Daybreak forgot to account for Daylight Savings Time and the expansion opened up an hour late! Late for a very important date, again. It’s #zerkertime!

April 26

Lost Dungeons of Norrath Launches

Lost Dungeons of Norrath Launches

Sigh… is it Gates of Discord yet? Okay so augments are neat, but the fact that we go from killing impressive GODS to orcs and… goblins and… wooly spiders and stuff is very anticlimactic.

February 16

Quarm Defeated

Quarm Defeated

Resolute experienced much success in the Plane of Time and the only encounter or two to give us any kind of a wake-up call were Tallon and Vallon Zek in Phase 4. Some adjustments were needed to streamline both fights better but we nonetheless got both down which opened the door to killing Phase 5 and Quarm on our first sortie there. Enable #farmstatus.

February 16

Xegony Defeated

Xegony Defeated

Oh the Plane of Air, all the mini rings needed to make the keys required for porting up to Xegony’s area. Kind of an interesting encounter with the add dynamics. She fell swiftly.

February 16

Fennin Ro Defeated

Fennin Ro Defeated

The Plane of Fire, such a fun place when you’re just starting out because all the minis are easily accessible and mostly drop elemental gear. Fennin Ro was no match for Resolute on this day.

February 12

The Rathe Council Defeated

The Rathe Council dead to Resolute

Definitely the hardest elemental planes encounter. Many guilds failed to kill the council within their allotted expedition time and had to try again the following week. Other guilds had practiced the encounter many times on the Test Server. Resolute? We gave it our best and barely failed our first try. We quickly regrouped and defeated the encounter with lots of time to spare our second ever attempt. Resolute on fire!

February 12

Coirnav Defeated

Coirnav Defeated

A lot of mental preparation was put into this encounter because it’s a 1-shot or wait until next week. Luckily for us, we had no issues 1-shotting the encounter!

February 12

Welcome to the Elemental Planes

We finally made it into the Elemental Planes, having missed Superbowl Sunday’s raid day, we were doubly productive on the days we did raid. One step closer to Time!

February 12

Solusek Ro Defeated

The final piece of the puzzle to gain full elemental access.

February 8

Bertoxxulous Defeated

One of the longer encounters, we were glad to finish it and move on. Nothing too challenging.

February 6

Terris Thule, Agnarr The Stormlord and Saryrn Defeated

More progression. We miscalculated one of the pre-flags with Saryrn so we had to snipe an open world kill to flag ourselves and get back on track before our Sunday raid. For the first time in the history of Resolute, we actually called an impromptu raid after hours late on a Saturday and about 65 people showed up in force. When the going matters, Resolute shows up!

February 2

Vallon, Tallon & Rallos Zek Defeated

Vallon, Tallon & Rallos Zek Defeated

Plane of Tactics wasn’t quite like we remembered back in the day, it felt like RZ had almost no hit points and died very quickly. He might have been missing MOTM at the time?

February 2

Aerin’Dar and Lord Mithaniel Marr Defeated

Add two more to the list. Lord Mith Marr was surprisingly pretty rough considering how few AAs/Gear our tanks had but we got him down on first try.

February 2

Grummus, Behemoth and Nezmirthafen Defeated

At work on Tier 1 flagging, moving along nicely!

February 2

Resolute’s first level 65’s!

Resolute’s first level 65’s!

This new level cap introduced corpse banking… Prior to expansion launch, certain industrious individuals in other top guilds banked hundreds of corpses, releveled to 60.99 and waited for PoP to go live to then resurrect said corpses and obtain 65 within minutes. Clever, but the technique was frowned upon by Daybreak who subsequently nerfed the technique for future TLPs/Expansions. We did things the oldschool (and right?) way by grinding it out. Rovell and team were the first to hit 65 in guild in about 11-14 hours after launch. Rovell was the first level 65 rogue and arguably the first “legitimate?” level 65 on the server. Resolute’s first 65’s were: Rovell, Bhikkhu, Zlam, Zanadar, Serik and Mellon.

February 1

The Planes of Power Launches

The Planes of Power Launches

New levels, new AA’s, new Gods to kill… This particular expansion is dear to many because of how epic it was. It also happens to be epic in length as Daybreak extended the expansion to a full 6 months. But hey, Lost Dungeons of Norrath would release halfway through and that’s something right?

2016
October 16

Aten Ha Ra Defeated

Aten Ha Ra Defeated

We ventured in to Vex Thal with 40-keyed members for the first time. With 15 minutes left in the instance, we arrived at Aten Ha Ra. Remembering our first experience in NTOV with Vulak’Aerr poofing all too well, we engaged AHR with a mission and defeated her with minutes to spare to do loot. The next weeks with a full raid force were a lot faster/cleaner and lacking in challenge.

October 11

Ssraeshza Temple Defeated

Ssraeshza Temple Defeated

Every single snake died to the might of Resolute, including the Emperor. Onwards to Vex Thal!

October 6

Lord Inquisitor Seru Defeated

Lord Inquisitor Seru Defeated

When you have 6-8 Wizards, 3-4 Mages, 5-6 Necromancers and a slew of melee without bane weapons, the fight still goes relatively quickly and well!

October 2

Khati Sha the Twisted Defeated

Khati Sha the Twisted Defeated

Ah, finally our first Luclin encounter that was a challenge! This was tuned for higher level content but made it’s way into the game nonetheless. Unfortunately the encounter’s Warders weren’t activating so the encounter, while challenging, wasn’t at it’s full potential. Still a fun fight with good loot.

October 2

Shei Vinitras Defeated

Not enough arms to save them.

October 2

Grieg Veneficius Defeated

Ol’ Grieg had no chance.

October 2

Thought Horror Overfiend Defeated

This is hardly deserving of a footnote…

September 28

The Shadows of Luclin Launches

The Shadows of Luclin Launches

A moonbase in space, in EverQuest… populated by obscure cat people and snakes. Yup, makes complete sense. At least there’s new stuff to kill and AA’s to grind!

June 11

The Ancients Defeated

The Ancients Defeated

The Ancients replaced the Warders after the Sleeper was awakened but we weren’t able to kill them until now because the ST instance was bugged wasn’t working for a while. When we finally got to fight them, it was bittersweet for a lot of people in the guild who missed out on experiencing the Warders.

May 31

Tunare Defeated

Tunare Defeated

Ah Tunare, the return for time investment hardly seems worth it except that your gear is so good…

May 30

Resolute’s Legendary 13.5!

Resolute’s Legendary 13.5!

Fresh off our first Vulak’Aerr kill after midnight, Rovell gathered our 14 ST key holders and ventured into Sleeper’s Tomb for testing purposes and to see if we could farm some primal weapons. We started with a successful kill of the Master of the Guard. Then, Bolten had to leave so he was boxed the rest of the way by Kushiel. After a successful Progenitor kill, we decided it would be worth fighting to the Warders to see if there was a chance we might be able to kill one. Meanwhile, our activities were being monitored by Grizvok, leader of AOS, who probably didn’t think we’d be able to do much.

By 3am, we had made our way to the Final Arbiter. After two failed attempts (he ran us out of mana), we decided to bypass him and attempt a Warder. To our surprise and amazement, we killed Nanzata, then Tukaarak and finally Hraashna… We couldn’t believe what we had accomplished with so few…

It was now 6am and only Ventani stood between us and releasing The Sleeper. We elected not to engage Ventani because it was open world and we were honoring a server pact Grizvok had championed. Had we not ventured into ST after a full NTOV raid, we would have missed out on the Warders. When the rest of the server heard what Resolute did with 13, a few guilds went with 20+ and that’s when AoS broke their pact by awakening The Sleeper. It was kind of like the 4 minute mile… the moment others heard it was broken… 😉

The Legendary 13.5 were: Bhikkhu, Bolten (the 0.5), Dagnarus, Fragile, HighHealz, Kushiel, Lamissa, Malz (now Zlam), Rinyu, Rivers, Rovell, Saffron, Sera, and Zanadar.

May 29

Vulak’Aerr Defeated

Vulak’Aerr Defeated

Ah, the North Temple of Veeshan, what a candyland of a place with Vulak’Aerr being the final prize. Our very first foray into NTOV during launch week got us to Vulak’Aerr, but our 6-hour timer ran out and we were booted from the instance before we could engage our prize. We made sure the following week that we improved our efficiency and shaved almost a full hour off the raid and claimed our prize.

May 26

Lord Yelinak Defeated

The Lord of Skyshrine was no match for Resolute.

May 26

Avatar of War Defeated

Avatar of War Defeated

The Avatar of War was our first real challenge in Velious. During launch week, three attempts on him showed a need to tighten up significantly on healing. The next week, we 1-shot him with a healing team that didn’t miss a beat!

May 24

Dain Frostreaver IV Defeated

This little guy has some fight in ’em. Didn’t save him in the end however…

May 24

Dozekar Defeated

Let the farming of Vulak-caliber quested loot begin!

May 22

Lord Vyemm Defeated

Lord Vyemm Defeated

Lord Vyemm is arguably one of the harder encounters in Velious. So much so that many guilds found workarounds to avoid fighting him yet still be able to spawn Vulak’Aerr. Not so for Resolute, we engaged and defeated him week after week.

May 19

King Tormax Defeated

The King of Kael dies, but he really isn’t Top Dog in Kael now is he? Let’s be honest…

May 18

The Scars of Velious Launches

The Scars of Velious Launches

Velious was both great and terrible… It was great in how epic the encounters were… from Thurgadin to Kael and Skyshrine… from Sleeper’s Tomb to the Temple of Veeshan, the encounters were fantastic. However, outside of raids, other than working on faction, there was nothing to do. No new levels, no AA’s yet.

March 31

Veeshan’s Peak Defeated

Veeshan’s Peak Defeated

As quickly as we entered Veeshan’s Peak, we conquered it and all of Kunark in just 29 days. All the prep work competing to complete keys paid off as roughly 6-7 groups of Resolute one-shot every Dragon on the way to a successful first clear. The next clear however, a certain rogue pet caused all kinds of problem on Hoshkar 😉

March 17

Gorenaire Defeated

Gorenaire Defeated

Gorenaire, in-era, is arguably one of the harder encounters in Kunark. It certainly matches up with the difficulty of some of the harder Veeshan’s Peak dragons. On this day, Resolute killed not one, but two Gorenaires.

March 17

Severilous Defeated

Severilous Defeated

One of the easier Kunark dragons was slain by Resolute

March 13

Trakanon Defeated

Trakanon Defeated

Trakanon, one of Kunark’s most impressive-looking dragons, was no match for Resolute.

March 13

Venril Sathir Defeated

Venril Sathir Defeated

What is there to say really, he’s the Phinigel of Kunark 🙂

March 10

Talendor Defeated

Talendor Defeated

For a while upon expansion launch, many Kunark bosses didn’t have Mitigation of the Mighty. This was our first kill of Talendor with MOTM.

March 5

Resolute’s First Level 60s!

Resolute’s First Level 60s!

Rovell and a team made up of Alluvin*, Grimwolf, HighHealz, Malz (now Zlam) & Rinyu implemented their plan to level quickly and were rewarded by not only being the first level 60s in the guild, but some of the first level 60s on the server! Rovell hit 60 first in the guild and was the first level 60 rogue on the server.

*Alluvin may or may not have been a part of this group.

March 2

Zanador Blitzes to Server 1st Necro Epic!

Zanador Blitzes to Server 1st Necro Epic!

Zanador is always a man with a plan and he was rewarded for a masterful execution of his plan with the server’s very first Necromancer Epic item, completed in less than 7 hours of expansion release! Many ducks lost their lives, it was a real quacker of a story…

March 2

The Ruins of Kunark Launches

The Ruins of Kunark Launches

With the Ruins of Kunark launch came a new level cap of level 60, new disciplines, new raid content and a new lease on life! New content will do that…

February 14

Classic Defeated In-Era

Classic Defeated In-Era

A guild with very humble beginnings came together, forged friendships, developed raid synergy and attained our ultimate goal of clearing Classic EverQuest in-era! With just two weeks before the launch of Kunark, Resolute defeated the Eye of Veeshan to be one of just 9 guilds to accomplish the feat in-era.

January 21

Innoruuk and Yael Defeated

Innoruuk and Yael Defeated

After being bugged for a few weeks, Innoruuk was back in Hate and looking for a fight. We obliged and defeated him. We then proceeded to the Hole to fight Master Yael with the same outcome. Neither were a match for our aspiring raid force!

January 17

Cazic Thule Defeated

Cazic Thule Defeated

At this point, we’re really starting to find our raiding groove. Synergies are developing and we’re defeating our targets in well-executed fashion. This Plane of Fear raid, however, was interesting… Earlier in the evening we accidentally pulled and defeated Dracoliche before we were ready. Then, the same thing happened with CT… he was accidentally pulled onto the raid and despite folks being afk, low mana, etc, we got him to 0% before wiping… yes 0%! After regrouping and pulling once we were ready, we defeated CT.

January 14

Lord Nagafen Defeated

Lord Nagafen Defeated

Lord Nagafen was a bit tougher for our team at the time. We managed three attempts on 1/7 and after revising our strategies, we successfully defeated him a week later.

January 10

Lady Vox Defeated

Lady Vox Defeated

Let’s be honest… Phinigel Autropos is not a major raid target. However, Lady Vox is! Our first raid on Lady Vox was on 1/3 and it resulted in two attempts and two wipes. We decided to focus on gaining more levels, more gear (Hate/Fear) and just a week later on Lady Vox perished to our raid force on that day’s first attempt!

January 3

Our First Raid – Phinigel Defeated

Our First Raid – Phinigel Defeated

It took just a bit longer than we expected but we managed our first raid against Phinigel with a team of 19 raiders. Interestingly, of those who attended our first raid, 11 are still active raiders of our guild today! They are Alluvin, Captainatrophy, Fdiine, Goodkitty, Hightankz, Kalrie, Rovell, Sera, Zlam, Zach and Zanadar!

2015
December 28

We are Resolute!

We are Resolute!

After many unsuccessful attempts at securing the Valoran name, we opted to change the guild name entirely because <The Valoran Project> wasn’t cutting it. We considered <Valloran>, <Valoran Guild> and a few other variations of the Valoran name. Ultimately, we decided to change directions and opted for <Resolute>.  To be resolute is to be admirably purposeful, determined and unwavering, all characteristics that embody our core values perfectly.

December 19

Resolute’s First Level 50!

Rovell, rogue and officer of Valoran, was our guild’s first level 50, hitting the mark in a bit less than 10 days after server launch.

December 16

Estate of Unrest… Raided?

We may hold the designation as being one of the only guilds on Phinigel to have “raided” Unrest. A few groups of our members descended upon the Estate on this day and rained havoc to every level of the mansion for a few hours.

December 9

The Valoran Project… Worst name ever!

At server up, the leaders frantically tried to secure the Valoran name but to no avail. It turns out the name was still being used on a different server and the guild leader of that guild was unreachable. The leaders settled on <The Valoran Project>  until they could either secure <Valoran> or choose a new name.

December 9

Phinigel Launches

The Phinigel TLP server launched at 5pm and the chaos began! Long queue times, hundreds upon hundreds of players in starter zones; it was glorious!

December 1

Valoran is Reborn!

After weeks of planning, Malz (now Zlam), Sera & Juicebox have put the final touches on their new Phinigel guild. Recruiting begins, launch-day preparations are made, and the leaders wait to find out if their old guild name, Valoran, can be used on Phinigel.
