Forming of Inquisition EditInquisition was formed on the 26th of December 2004 with the ambition of becoming a leading guild in the Player Vs Environment that is offered in the dynamic content of World of Warcraft.
Founding members Fyre (guild leader/slut), Thoringrim, Liberate (KIA), Wetworks, Campari, Astolpho (regulators fanboi), Sticky, Serbitar (runs cyb0r store now), Milynn and Reptile came together in determination to progressing the guild to this state whilst maintaining a competitive edge in Player Versus Player that the Blackrock server's rule contains.
Through a wobbly recruitment process at first and an inner purging of the wicked(GG JD), Inquisition quickly sweeped through the Blackrock player base to establish a hardworking, determined core of players who shared the same views of success.
Once the foundation was cemented, Inquisition immediately began work on building from this elite base to conquer all the bosses, foes and enemies offered within Azeroth.
Through endless (and boring?) runs of upper blackrock spire (before drak blood got "fixed to raid loot"), Inquisition quickly formed a team that succeeded on trust, great communication and the unbreakable will to succeed.
This has lead to Inquisition being the first alliance guild to defeating Onyxia, as well as being the first alliance guild to completely clear Molten Core.
But with rapid progress and a will to dominate the server as a whole, Inquisition has become the first on the server to defeat the New Ragnaros as well as defeat the Razorgore the untamed encounter post hotfix (without lag..), giving Inquisition the reputation of always being the leading guild and benchmark on Blackrock.
Inquisition only formed as a gaming team with common interest with people who levelled up together in the first wave from the launch of World of Warcraft. All sharing the same ambition and experience of past MMPORPGs high end content, the want to establish a team like Inquisition was bound to happen.
Using Ventrilo and the natural instincts of a mature and trusting gamer (sorry Gaea), Inquisition now approaches encounters and events with positive awareness and true grit. (without exploiting & cascading funnily enough).

Inquisition History Edit
Inquisition progressed quickly throughout end game content in classic WoW. Clearing Molten Core first on server and quickly taking out Blackwing Lair. It was during that time Inquisition would bare 4 consecutive Grand Marshals, Wetworks, Kyvaan, Crestfaly and Zoddi. Earning Pvp reputation world wide. Soon after Inquisition was gifted with Sulfuras the first legendary given to Hina. and Thunderfury given to Wetworks. Dragcannon would receive the next Sulfuras and Kiety the second Thunderfury. With a few set backs of leadership retirement Inquisition kept pressing on through Ahn'Qiraj and cleared it lead by Nightmayr, Milynn and Raxer. During the Naxxramas world event Inquisition stepped up its game and began clearing Naxx. In that time Redefined experienced a decline in raid activity and split, more than half of the guild members joining Inquisition in the process. This helped boost us to the final wings of Naxx. However, Inquisition suffered some guild disputes, several core players had quit or transferred, or people simply couldn't dedicate as many hours to raiding anymore. Inquisition broke down before clearing the instance they had worked so hard on.
With the release of The Burning Crusade, Inquisition faded into obscurity. Nightmayr transferred to Korgath, many players quit the game or transferred to play with friends. The remaining members left on the server wanted to continue playing together after forming strong relationships from the 3 years in Inquisition. Rav stepped up as guild leader for the formation of a new guild called Ascendancy. We had the potential to become one of top guilds on the server again, we got off to a good start by getting the first level 70 character on Blackrock Alliance (Damianrx). But our achievements didn't last long - because we didn't have many members remaining we lacked the appropriate classes for 25man raids. It didn't help that Rav also decided to dog us and stop playing soon after he got to 70 (now known as rat dog rav). With no one wanting to lead again, we were only able to complete Gruul's Lair and Karazhan before parting ways again. Most members still kept in touch by leaving alts in Ascendancy and using a private chat channel.
A few later, Wetworks made a return and took up leadership of Inquisition once more. Six months later the plan was formed, started by Ritishi, Kyrthorn and retired players coming back to revive Inq. Over the course of two weeks Inquisition was back to full raiding capacity. Clearing Kara in a matter of days. Progressing rapidly through Burning Crusade while sifting out a dedicated core of raiders but retaining a casual raiding guild status, clearing all content through to Black Temple before the nerf except for Magtheridon's Lair.
When Wrath of the Lich King opened Inquisition had a built itself a stable foundation from which to take on the new content in Northrend. Clearing 3 Drakes Obsidian Sanctum, Naxxramas (Heroic), Malygos, Ulduar, ToC25 and 8/12 ICC. All in 10 and 25 man versions.
WebsiteEditIn the first year or so, we were using a private forum to communicate on. If I remember correctly, it was running on one of Serbitar's servers. Later on, we had plans to develop a new website as we needed a guild website for new applicants because our guild was growing rapidly. After many discussions regarding the guild website, and no action taken - we had the luck of meeting Reptile's good friend (Dahkhan) who was a professional in the design industry. Working as a Creative Director at the time, Dahkhan designed us a great website and earned a spot in the guild! Eventually the design was sliced up by one of Dahkhan's friends. The code was then tweaked by Raxer and a CMS was implemented into the design. Reptile kindly let us use one of his servers for hosting as well.
The website was maintained by Reptile & Raxer, news was written by Scuzz, Leonardo, Guild Leaders and Officers.
Our site was originally located on the domain http://www.guildinquisition.com, but was changed to http://www.inqbr.com later. You can see some remnants of the website using the Internet Archive Wayback Machine website.
After the guild disbanded, members still kept in touch using the guild forums. It was interesting seeing what people were up to after we parted ways, especially the "Where are you now?" thread. Unfortunately the domain name expired on the 9th of June and now we have no way of contacting each other.
Although members weren't required to be on Ventrilo for raids, we still had a lot of activity on vent. The majority of our time on vent was full of laughter, especially in the early days of Inq - Mogul's late night stories of his misadventures in Hawaii, Scuzz's outbursts of rage especially during PvP, plus many more!
Unfortunately Ventrilo also caused a rift to form between members who used Vent and members who didn't. This was one of the reasons why the guild had disbanded. Many rumours were spread - saying that people on Vent spoke about other members behind their backs, and people being emo and sus about this activity didn't help either. Certain members (Kyvaan) were blaming leaders that the lack of Vent was impairing our progression.
The current Ventrilo is hosted by Rassmiss.
