Progression is a highly successful raiding guild on the Alliance side of Stormrage, the highest population US-PvE server. Formed on August 3, 2017, most of our core has been raiding together since 2007. Through Wrath of the Lich King, we cleared all heroic content, including The Twilight Zone (25 player) and Glory of the Ulduar Raider 10- and 25-player while they were current, and Trial of the Grand Crusader shortly after Icecrown Citadel was released.
As a guild we have also achieved Glory of the Icecrown Raider 10- and 25-player, completing four Shadowmourne and The Light of Dawn with the US#264 kill on heroic Lich King before Cataclysm released. Our progression in the first raid tier of Cataclysm was 13/13 heroic, and in t12 we cleared 7/7 heroic in Firelands, killing Heroic: Ragnaros pre-4.3 nerf. After our decision to consolidate to a 10-man raiding guild in t13, our progress rocketed to 8/8 heroic in Dragon Soul, killing Madness of Deathwing on March 1st 2012 with the 10% buff active.
Throughout Mists of Pandaria, we raided on a competitive level, clearing all tier14 content including Heroic Elite Protectors on January 31st 2013. As of June 11th 2013 we achieved Glory of the Thundering Raider awarding Reins of the Armored Skyscreamer after clearing all t15 content, including heroic Ra-den with 13 attempts remaining! During Siege of Orgrimmar, we continued to raid on a hardcore schedule and often raiding extra days during the weekend. As a result, we defeated Cutting Edge: Garrosh Hellscream (10 player) on February 6th 2014, and as a guild we decided to take a 4-month break from raiding during the summer before Warlords of Draenor would be released.
A Premier Gaming Experience
Since Warlords raiding has began, we have adopted a more lenient raid schedule to accommodate 20-man Mythic raiding and to prevent burnout. Our raid team was previously led by our guild master Lavagurl in his absence Senpai Zaraki has picked up the torch of leadership. We are also very active in PvP as a guild and always seeking more for battlegrounds and arenas. We are always looking for more active, like-minded players seeking fresh progression through achievements, raid content, and beyond!
Legion has been about rebuilding for Progression. Our guild has been in the top 100 US since Cata but we had to take a step back after most of our raid team quit at the end of WoD. It has been a long process to get back to where we want to be as a guild as our first heroic kills as a team were as high as 195th on the server. We are proud to say that we have gained ground on every guild on this server, being the 40th guild to down mythic Xavius. During Antorus we achieved Cutting Edge Argus, resulting in receiving realm 23rd guild to down him on Stormrage. Now that we have a strong core and bench together we have been hitting the ground running and continue moving up in the rankings.
