      It's That Time Again...



      No, not that time... what the f... it's never that time. Why can't I look away? *shakes head*

      No, friends... it's "Mal`Deth is Here to Fuck Shit Up O'Clock!" Which, coincidentally, is roughly 1:33 AM on a Tuesday night. If I haven't slept yet, it's still Tuesday. Shut up.

      It's been a while since the MD tag flew proudly around Norrath but we're looking to come back in full force and decimate everything that gets in our way, whether it be a raid mob or a very unresponsive PR team at Snapple. We're coming for our sponsorship, Snapple...

      If you're interested in joining the best gang to ever hit Omens of War progression in EQ, in early 2017, on Tunare, in a guild called Mal`Deth, then you've come to the right place. We're small right now, but growing quickly (Yes, we're a grower and not yet a shower). We have a solid team of officers who are working hard to fill our ranks and get our members in raiding shape so we can start tearing ass through Norrath as soon as possible.

      Before applying, check out our Class Needs, listed on the left side of this Home Page. Also, make sure you read our Guild Charter (clickable on the Navigation Panel at the top of the page) so that you understand all of our rules and restrictions before joining up.

      Our goal is to recreate the original fun and challenge of this mid-era content, which no other guild in EQ is doing, as far as we know. This is your best, and likely only, chance to experience this content as it was intended to be experienced.

      If you have any questions, get in touch with anyone in the guild to be connected to an Officer. When you do a /who all, be sure to put our guild name in quotes otherwise no one will show up. /who all "Mal`Deth" - it's a ` not a '... grammar, people. Come on.

      We're excited to see the applicants who have already joined up and we can't wait to see more of you! Let's have a good time, folks!

      Hello everyone!
      It's my honor to announce that we're going to try to get things moving again. If you're seeing this, then hopefully you're as excited as I am that our website is back up and running! Snapple... we're not letting this go.

      As it stands right now, Keldaria and I agreed that the guild will not move forward with recruiting efforts until a full officer team is in place and we've had the chance, as a complete leadership, to meet and discuss the direction of the guild. We've got a lot of work and planning to do before recruitment opens up to the public, however returning members are of course welcome to rejoin any time of their choosing. We just ask that, if you choose to rejoin ahead of open recruitment, you're patient with us as we try to put together the most capable leadership possible.

      Full disclosure, and I know Keldaria would agree with this, we got burnt out majorly last time. The pace at which Mal`Deth was traveling (kicking the ever-loving shit out of every raid target we set our eyes on), took its toll on the leadership, which by the end was pretty much down to just a few of us trying to hold the whole thing together. We know that many of you just want to raid, group, and have fun without the pressures of leadership, so it's imperative that we put ourselves in a position where we'll never need to pressure the membership into taking on leadership roles in the future. Our aim, and we will not settle for less, is to find like-minded individuals who are serious and devoted to the goals that we share and who will take on the responsibilities and burdens of a leadership role for the sake of keeping the individual burden light, so everyone in the leadership feels that they are able to breathe, relax, and enjoy the game without taking on too many jobs or stressing themselves out to the point of needing a vacation from EQ.

      I know I can also speak on behalf of Kelaria, when I say that we cherished our time with you all. We enjoyed building friendships with you guys, kicking the shit out of raid targets with you, and we took immeasurable pride in what Mal`Deth was able to accomplish in the four months that we were raiding. Scrolling back through our recruitment post on the EQ forums, it's really incredible and similar guilds have tried and failed to do what we did together. I attribute our success to who we were as a guild, who we were together. It's my sincerest hope that our regulars will return and that we will welcome dozens of new players into the fold, max out raid count, and utterly dominate again, as is the nature of this group of maniacs that I call my EQ family. We are raiders. It's what we do. And we're very, very good at it...

      I'm excited about getting back into that with you all and I hope to see all of our regulars return. Just be patient as we put in the time necessary to ensure that we go the distance this time around. It'll be worth the wait, I promise you.


      All of my hatred,

      Greetings my fellow guild members.

      A great deal has occurred over the last couple of weeks. As most of you are aware by now, me (Keldaria) and Knightmare have opted to step back from the guild and the game a few weeks ago. This was due to a number of reasons, some personal (Real Life), others more general (Burned Out) and ultimately wasn't a reflection of our opinion towards anyone or any situation. Sure we all had our disagreements at times but if everyone always agreed then the world would of course be a very different and strange place indeed.

      However at the time we left the decision firmly in our members hands about the direction you guys wanted to take. Even though I was effectively gone from in game I have made an effort to stay active and aware on the forums of any changes or needs the new leadership (whoever that may be) required to continue on. After a few weeks of limited information I now understand that the leadership and remaining members have opted to move to the Test Server and start a new progression guild under the name of "Nostalgic Legends". For those of you looking for them they can be found at a new web space @ http://nostalgiclegends.guildportal.com/ and continue progression just like we left off.

      I truly wish them the best in their efforts to start again, and would encourage any new recruits popping in here to head on over and check them out.

      As for Mal`Deth itself, it would appear that its chapter in the grand book that is EQ, is drawing to a close once again. In 4 months we formed a guild from scratch, beat the OoW expansion, DoN expansion and cleared all 5 Blood raids in DoDh in era levels, gear and other era based restrictions. All of which was done with very limited boxing. That is no small feat and anyone who was involved in that accomplishment should feel proud.

      As promised, www.maldeth.com will remain available until the new leadership no longer needs them. They appear well under way with their website. Once they give me the word that their members have successfully transitioned over, I will start to transition this site into an inactive state until I can decide what to do with it long term.

      If anyone should need to contact me, you can reach me via Keldaria@Keldaria.com or PM on this website.

      PS: No word yet from snapple...
      by Published on 07-09-2015 10:22 AM

      After much discussion last night, today I've taken it upon myself to draft an official letter to Snapple concerning a potential future relationship between them and our group. I've placed said letter in the mail today and hope to hear a response back from them soon. I will keep you all informed as I know many of you are just as eager as I to engage in a full scale partnership with this amazing product.

      Below is a copy of the letter I sent (please note my real name, address and phone number were actually included in the original so they can formally respond to our letter).

      And just like that... Blood Raids are done!



      As Queen Sendaii lay dead on the ground (or shoved into a wall), the sounds of "HOODY HOO!" could be heard echoing through TeamSpeak. Mal`Deth has officially beaten all five Blood Raids. Of course, as anyone who has done these raids legit can tell you, Sendaii is by far the toughest one. We definitely wiped a few times to her, but on our third night of attempting her, she finally went down. A little tweaking to the original plan and it actually felt pretty smooth!

      Congratulations to this incredible guild! Vule next week and Demi-Plane of Blood is right around the corner!!! Time to crash some dinner parties and stab a few vampires!

      If you're interested in joining a truly talented and dedicated raid force, reliving mid-era content (the best content in EQ) and having a blast with the most fun crew of people I've ever played EQ with, then drop off an application!

      Check needed classes before applying and make sure you have read our Guild Charter!

      See you at raids...

      VISHIMTAR THE FALLEN LIVES (or dies) UP TO HIS NAME!
      - OMENS AND DON HAVE BEEN BEATEN LEGIT! -

      Vishimtar took a grand total of 3 attempts. We went into the instance on an earlier night just to show people what the zone looked like, etc but as far as actual committed attempts go, we got him down on our third try. This raid force is incredible. We would have taken a screenshot with Vishi himself, but he fell into the wall. We'll add a screenshot after we kill him again next week For now, check us out flexing next to the chest, which dropped some sweet loot!!!

      Grats to Viladyan on being our first member to complete the YL/Vishi eye quest and get his awesome 1.0 sec cast time heal clicky!



      As promised... here is a shot of the mighty beast's corpse...





      Depths of Darkhollow is officially open for group content!!!

      We will be working the group content in DoDH and farming CoA/DoN for a while yet before moving into flagging raids for Demi. None of us expected to be moving through progression so quickly, so we're going to slow things down just a bit and make sure we farm the crap out of CoA/DoN before putting any of it on post-farm.

      Just a reminder, all of our wins are done legitimately, without the use of high levels or their buffs. We do not allow defiant gear or augs, no hotzone quest gear, nor do we allow any fabled items. All gear worn by raiders, including augs, existed during the expansions we're raiding and have been earned legitimately by grouping or raiding. This is as close to the original era as any guild can get and as such, beating OMM and Vishi within a week of each other is nothing short of incredible. Mal`Deth rocks and our members are incredibly talented raiders! Cannot wait for Demi flagging!!! (even though we have to, to make time for farming...)

      Class sections are filling up and our needs will be adjusted on the website.
      But, I'll spare you the trouble!

      Our highest needs are:
      - ENCHANTERS -
      - PALADINS -
      - SHADOW KNIGHTS -

      "Sure, you killed everything through AMV, but I'm not impressed..." - Some dick.

      "Pfffffttttttttttttttttttttttttt, talk to me when you kill OMM..." - A real jerk.

      "You guys aren't a real raid force..." - A very incorrect individual...

      Yep, it finally happened. Tonight was the night. Not only did we beat OMM... we beat him twice...

      We got him to banish us the first attempt, then accidentally took too long getting back. We thought we had a lot more time than we did apparently. I could hear the heads slamming into desks and imminent depression was befalling the raid force. Obviously, we could not call it for the night, even though we were already beyond midnight at this point. We were hungry for a win. And when we're hungry, we stay up past our bed times. And when we stay up past our bed times, this happens...





      Now look at this pretty lockout list!



      This week yielded FIVE 2.0 orbs (OMM dropped two of them tonight) and our members are loving spamming guild chat with their links! I have to say, I love seeing it too.

      Now, let's take a moment to talk about just how difficult this encounter can be. Most guilds back in the day didn't even attempt OMM after they saw what he is capable of. Plenty of guilds just farmed through AMV and revisited OMM during later expansions. However, we're not plenty of guilds. We are going to do progression legit (or as close to legit as a guild can get in EQ these days). DoN is next on the chopping block and for those who say we can't handle Vish... I remind you that we just handled OMM

      I want to take a moment to congratulate our raiders, who are diligent, focused, capable, and adaptive. You have all proven to the world that we are to be taken seriously now as a progression raid force. We have sculpted an incredibly fun and talented squad here and I cannot wait to keep progressing with you all. Tonight, more than any night, you all sincerely and profoundly impressed me to my core. I have never raided with such an incredible group of people.

      Here's to a very bright and successful future of raiding together! WE FUCKING BEAT OMENS OF WAR!!!!!!!!

      It's been a really solid couple of weeks to be in Mal`Deth... and a really shitty couple of weeks to be a raid mob in CoA...





      (Insert picture of Ture in which his corpse didn't fall into the god damn wall, ruining everything... see lockout screenshot if you think we beat Jelvan and not Ture)





      Yep, that's right. Everything in CoA, except for OMM (soon... soon, you son of a bitch) has been slain with ease (ok, maybe Jelvan was a pain in the ass the first couple of times) by the heroes over at Mal`Deth!





      A very special congratulations to our first class of 2.0 raiders, Claude, Crenshin, and Joeesiph! If you got it, flaunt it, baby!








      We are very proud to announce that, since CoA sans OMM has been completed legitimately in era at max lvl 70, we are now officially opening the Dragons of Norrath expansion!!!



      No, no, no... that's the wrong dragon. I mean, it's a fun fight sure, but it's not DoN.

      I have no doubts in my mind that Mal`Deth will annihilate the DoN expansion with ease. After Foresight, Jelvan, and making the rest of CoA look like a walk in the park, the only potential challenge will be Vishi, who really is nothing more than a cracked out version of RSS Queen/King anyway. So, please...

      Hey kids!
      Today we're going to have some fun, learning our numbers with our favorite vampire: Count von Count!

      Let's practice counting to 6!













      Yep, that's right... /grin



      All six trials have been defeated by 25 (on Foresight, NBD) to 32 in-era (lvl 70, with no Omens gear that hasn't been earned during raids, no defiant gear/augs, etc) raiding mains of Mal`Deth! I won't lie, Foresight gave us a good run and really forced us to hone our skills as raiders. In the end, we got it down and now the gates of CoA have swung open, inviting us in to slaughter and loot everything in sight!

      If you're looking to join us, now is the time! Read the Guild Charter for rules, raid schedule, etc. Be sure to also check our needed classes before applying!

      So, is there anything out there that can stop us?! Elephino!

      SOON!

      Soon...
      Are you ready for what is soon to come? We're nearing the end of the MPG Trials and CoA is right around the corner.
      by Published on 04-13-2015 04:36 AM

      Sooooooooo, it's been a while! It's long overdue that we put a new story up here and what better story to share than the epic (teehee) tale of Mal`Deth slaughtering our way around Norrath in order to equip our members with their 1.5's!

      It started like most classic stories... A few elves and a couple of lizard men hop on a boat and set out for adventure... you know, that old chestnut...



      Pretty soon, they met up with some of their guild homies and decided that it was time to rally Mal`Deth and start killing mobs...

      The mobs found out what was happening. They were less than excited...



      A wake of corpses rippled through Norrath, as we made kill...



      After kill...



      After kill...



      After bloody, merciless kill...



      Of course, this is but a small sample of our kill catalog. There's many more mobs out there just itching to die and who are we to deny them their dreams? We're Dream Makers (TM), here at Mal`Deth.

      Savage, relentless murder is but one of the many beautiful aspects of this update that I have for you all. I'd also like to take a moment to brag about our incredible officers who have been recruiting like maniacs. Shout out to Dallia, Deecayed, and Keldaria for just killin' it and making this guild the spectacular family that it's become...



      Of course, if we're being honest... we may have had to take some unorthodox tactics in order to pull in as many recruits as possible.

      Whatever it takes! *drops pants*




      Indeed, we are still recruiting and we've got all the naked Barbarians you can handle! Please always check our "Class Needs" section on the home page, as we update it very regularly. Even if a class section is listed as closed, we may make an exception for an extraordinary raider. Make sure to click on the "Guild Charter" link before applying to check that our rules and raid times work for you.

      Epic 1.5 and 2.0 fights are being taken down left and right and we're very close to starting progression raids. DKP is already being earned for event nights, so now is the perfect time to join! If you're into killing shit with cool people, you should probably go ahead and apply

      See you in the past...
