Welcome to Aman'Thul's Wiki page!Edit
9 Jun'06 4:59pm - Server opened
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.
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. <Perspicuus> attained server first Hakkar and Ragnaros kills, however <Resilience> took over with server first Nefarian and beyond (i.e. rest of pre-tbc bosses).
By the end of classic WoW there was 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.
