Hobbitual was founded the day of release in 2007 open Beta, making us one of the oldest kins on record and still active. We have many achievements that set us apart from other groups, including multiple server first kills. At the end of the day, all that really matters is tackling all the content the game throws our way and getting it done. That is what Hobbitual is all about, and what we’ve been doing since 2007.
It’s a common misconception that Hobbitual is a “Hard-core raiding kin”. We do not consider ourselves hardcore. We are consistently successful at what we do, and have fun while doing it! We expect our members to have an attitude of “every little bit helps” and it has continuously helped us with our success.
We do not have a set roster of raiders that raid, but we do love active players and consistency. Most importantly, we work class synergy for specific fights which results in some classes getting more action than others, but everyone that is an active raider gets a chance to raid every other raiding night.
Some of our greatest Raid achievements include:
- Thorog 1.0 – game first kill
- Thorog 2.0 & 3.0 – server first kill
- Thrang – server first kill
- Thaurlach – server first kill
- Watcher 1.0 & 2.0 – server first kill
- Killed the LT on 3 August 2010 – the first full-kin kill on server, second group on server to kill him.
- Ost Dunhoth – Mammoth’s T2 Challenge (Wound), Dourbark & Baleleaf T2 Challenge (Disease), Frothmar T2 Challenge (Poison), Ivar T2 Challenge, Gortheron T2 Challenge all completed – server second kill on all T2 Challenge bosses.
- Draigoch the Red T2 Challenge Completed
- ToO T2 Challenges: Lightning, Fire/Frost, Acid on level
- Completed Flight, Battle T2, and Smaug T2C
