Current Realm Progression
Aman'thul is a realm containing many self-described casual guilds, and does not compete on the World, US, or even Oceanic stage, in terms of raiding progression. However, for a realm of casual guilds, it has respectable progression. Alliance is by far the stronger of the two factions, with <NK> leading the pack with all recent notable Realm Firsts. Horde-side has been relatively dormant since TBC, however <Nocturnal> has sustained solid progression and all significant Horde firsts since the start of WOTLK. One of the realm's features is that it is home to many +8GMT time guilds, as well as the conventional Oceanic +10GMT raid time guilds.

Some Aman'thul history:
9 Jun'06 4:59pm - Server opened
7 Jul'06 - Alliance guild "Game" kills the Zul'Gurub bosses: Jeklik, Venoxis and Bloodlord Mandokir. Also downing Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj boss Kurinnaxx
8 Jul'06 - Alliance guild "Perspicuus" kills Hakkar in Zul'Gurub. The following day they defeated Azuregos and the Molten Core bosses Lucifron, Magmadar and Gehennas.
8 Jul'06 - Around this time, Blizzard decided that the Ahn'Qiraj gates should not have been opened and the Scourge Invasion event shouldn't have been started so these were removed during a restart.
12 Jul'06 - Alliance guild "Xmen" was created as a social guild for players of all experience, offering an alternative to hardcore raiding guilds and remains the oldest and most successful guild of its kind on the server. Guild website can be found here: http://www.xmenguild.com
15 Sep'06 - Sanctus of the guild "Resilience" opened the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj. You can see some of the footage of the lag caused by opening the gates on Aman'thul here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YgWiuK81MY
Guild <Game> (the first 'top' raiding guild on Aman'thul) disbanded due to drama as someone (Archrival) ninja looted T2 head piece from Onyxia and the GM at the time /gdisbanded shortly afterwards. The ninja may not have been the cause of the shortly followed disband - but no one remembers =). "I have fond memories of archrival. He was in Resilience till one day he decided that we are not going to progress as fast as GAME so he decided to join them, was testing times as like a member or so quit each day to join GAME. Then proceed to ninja the T2 helm the next week" - Lunar <Resilience>
Guild <Perspicuus> was renamed and reformed into <Void> and remained in the top raiding scene until TBC where it quickly fell apart. By the end of classic WoW there were only three guilds working on Naxxramas (<Resilience>, <Void> and <Dynasty>) with the furthest progressed reaching only 8/15. This undoubtly was due to the age of the server compared, as it opened only shortly before the release of Naxxramas.
Shortly before the release of TBC <Resilience> decided to split from one 40man raiding guild into two 25man raiding guilds. The new guild created was <Not Steamboat> of which Sanctus was the chosen GM, while originally this guild comprised a high number of original <Resilience> members this is no longer the case and there are very few members remaining that are from the original <Resilience>.

With the release of TBC the race to level 70 was on, those from the states had a headstart, however inevitably Sanctus won the race in approximately three days.
Upon beginning to raid again few pre-tbc raiding guilds survived, including the noticeable disbanding of <Void> and <T S C>. Since then there has been many guilds rebuilding, building from scratch and more and more casual guilds shifting into the raiding scene as raiding has become a lot easier to organise and accomplish. Through all this <Not Steamboat> has managed to acquire every single server first Boss kill. With the disband of <Void> and <T S C> these members mostly reformed into the guilds <K A O S>, <Gnomeland Security> and <Dyslexics untie>.
Upon killing Illidan on the 16th of September, <Not Steamboat> became the top Oceanic guild and Aman'Thul became an increasingly popular server, significantly increasing the login queues and decreasing general server performance.
To help rectify this problem Aman'thul has since had two rounds of free xfers off to new servers. Firstly to Nagrand, where <Dynasty>, <Singularity> (now <Tribunal>), <K A O S> and a large number of other guilds went as the server was much more stable than Aman'thul at the time. However, upon closing free xfers to Nagrand, Aman'Thul was immediately open to paid xfers once again and it wasn't long until the server filled up yet again. Aman'thul has since had a second round of free xfers, this time to Caelestrasz. Two members of <Dynasty> (Feli, now Felibeli and Lintelotiel) took the oppurtunity from their free xfer to 'ninja' open the AQ gates and gain themselves new titles and mounts. Lintelotiel has since returned to Aman'thul and is the second Scarab Lord on the realm.
Also may be worth mentioning the free transfer period to Dath'Remar (ending 28 September 2006), given it did a fair amount of damage to a number of guilds.
Unfortunately Aman'Thul has a history of its Horde progression being several steps below the alliance. This began as a pattern pre-tbc with only three guilds horde side successfully killing Ragnaros, of which only one was able to kill Razorgore. <Ajantis> initially gave alliance a run for their money, however several members of the original <Ajantis> xfered off early into Aman'thul's life (during the first round of free xfers to Dath'Remar during pre-TBC) and <Ajantis> took a long time to recover. However, they have continued to lead the pack Horde side throughout TBC.
Server first rank 14 was Evilanice (H), also only horde High Warlord. Alliance Rank 14's are dragarath, stocky, Echidna and apanda.
Horde first hakkar and Ragnaros kills were by <Darkness Awaken> (dont know when). They disbanded c 4 September '06. Ossirian was by <Ajantis> on 22 September '06. Highest horde progression ever (pre-tbc) was Vaelestrasz by MYTH (go horde! :p)
"something pretty good about Aman'Thul, people forgive and forget and act like one big happy family at the end of it all. =D " - Aramis <Resilience> GM, this holds true for the people that don't xfer off.
Pre-TBC, <Resilience> had all server first kills past MC.
Some history of <Not Steamboat> the top raiding guild on Aman'Thul: 
<Not Steamboat> Transfers at end of TBC along with various high-end guilds.
In WotLK, <Noctis Erus> takes first place with server first Sarth 3D 25m kill, followed by <Brute Force>. <Noctis Erus> maintain this through 3.1, taking server first Yogg-Saron, aswell as all the hardmodes except Yogg+0 on 25m. <Noctis Erus> transfer to Barthalis Horde with their Realm First Algalon title and achievement. <Hysteria> defaults to top guild on server.
In patch 3.2, <Hysteria> and <NK> ran neck and neck, <NK> scoring their first Algalon 25-man kill hours after <Hysteria>.
<NK> killed Heroic 25-man Anub'arak on 23rd November 2009, becoming the first guild on the server to obtain the Trial of the Grand Crusader achievement, and since this have taken every significant server first up to their current progression of Lich King 25 normal.
Cataclysm launch sees a struggle of many guilds on the server to maintain a 25man raiding team, and many are pressured into 10man raiding. Many guilds resort to running concurrent 10mans, until 25man raiding picks up again. <Dedication> claims realm first Nefarian Normal on 10man. <FortyFour> a 10man guild forms Horde side from old Hysteria members who faction changed, getting Nefarian a day after <Dedication> and a server first Heroic Chimaeron kill to sneak them into #1. E-drama about alliance traitors ensues.
