Last Saturday, the 1st of Sept, Vanquish held the World Boss Marathon with the objective of destroying all 135 world bosses throughout the world of Tamriel.
Starting off in Glenumbra at 11am EST, we completed that objective 14 hours and 15 minutes later with the final boss going down in Vvrandenfell. We were quite excited that so many VNQ’ers participated in this event. Consistently running 2 groups at all times, we had 58 Vanquish members participating with no less than 22 at one time. The most at one time was 44. With the 135 world bosses, all dailies were completed as well (Gold Coast, Vvrandenfell, Clockwork, Summerset and Wrothgar)
What made this event run so well was the Vanquish members themselves. As Savina stated in her post, “The truth is we really didn’t do that much…. started auto invite and followed a laid-out plan on where to go next. ALL of you that participated in this event are the ones that made it a success. Everyone involved did their part to ensure everyone got credit for each boss. All involved stayed with the group and exercised patience and understanding throughout the day for both Duck and I, as well as their fellow guildmates. It really was ALL OF YOU that made this Event so much fun!”
Of everyone that attended, a very special shout out to a few individuals that had attended the entire length of the events; @Maia_Ilmare, @Megnin, @Darkmeer, and a special guest (who still hasn’t put in an application [hint hint] @NaiClanWarlord. Also, we believe that @Sovrad, @Tavistock were also in that group but at the time of screenshots (start of each zone), they weren’t listed at the very start.
A special "Thank you" to Oakos for dropping in and giving out some wonderful prizes during the event!
Thank you ALL for such a wonderful, memorable time!

“My husband (@Christobol), son (@NaiClanWarlord) and I had a lot of fun participating in the World Boss Event yesterday; Duck and Savina are marvelous leaders and coordinators. No one in my family had ever set aside an entire day for an MMO guild event before, and I believe it was time well spent - and highly entertaining - thanks in no small part to your skillful leadership.
Many thanks also to Oakos for letting our son take part in a guild event when he hasn't joined Vanquish (yet). It meant a lot to Chris and me to have him there with us, and I really appreciate it. Vanquish is a wonderful group! ” -Maia_Ilmare
