A popular level 60 classic raiding guild that formed after the release of the Burning Crusade expansion pack. Located on the realm Smolderthorn (US) - Horde. Formed January of 2008, formerly founded as Nova, Heralds of Yore (HoY) quickly gained popularity from many people in the WoW community. While progression was slow at first, the guild eventually cleared up to Fankriss in AQ40. Stringent rules and gear/talent restrictions gave the closest feel of to classic content compared to the other myriads of classic guilds that followed. Talents were caped at 31 points and no BC armor/enchants were allowed. Players with restricted gear equipped were not allowed to participate in raids until the offending gear was removed.
Guild Final Progression:
Molten Core: Cleared
Blackwing Lair: Cleared
AQ40: Fankriss Downed
The guild has gone through many reforms. As of May 2010 the guild has is no longer active. Rarely will you find a player on, but when you do, be sure to inspect them, their gear is quite amazing. =) <p> R.I.P. World's first Classic Raiding guild since release of TBC.
