WoW Release Date November 23rd, 2004
WoW hit the shelves at midnight, and many of us were in stores waiting.  Even though it was the middle of the night, a bunch of us got online almost as soon as the servers went up, and Shadowed Fates was formed on Eastern server Medivh, Alliance side, within hours of the game going live!

Excellent teamwork - right out of the gates!
ELITE Quest Weekend November 27th & 28th, 2004
This weekend was all about clearing those pesky ELITE quests out of our quest log (ok... and also about getting great loot, lots of experience, and having a blast!).  We killed VanCleef about a dozen times total between the two nights, completely cleared the Stockades many times, raided Blackfathom Depths with several different groups, and also took care of the above ground ELITE quests in Redridge Mountains and Duskwood.  Phew!  What a busy weekend, but now a lot of folks have some room in their quest log, we've already got a handfull of members over level 30, and we had a ton of fun, despite the lag issues that seem to be getting worse every night.  Unfortunately I don't have many photos, and not a single loot, photo, because you guys are slackers!  Kyuzo was the only one to earn his Junior Photography Badge, sending pictures from our missions to slay Lord Gregor, Gath'Ilzogg, Bazil Thredd, and Edwin VanCleef.
