Record-setting WoW Classic guild shutting down
By Aron Gerencser September 14, 2021
This is not a good time to be a World of Warcraft fan.
Many heroes of Azeroth are looking for greener pastures.
Classic's first-time Ragnaros killing raid guild is calling it quits, too.
The credit for the first modern Ragnaros kill in Classic goes to APES in September 2019.
Setting records like that is no mean feat, and APES cut it really close too.
However, it seems APES is done with setting records in the fantasy MMO - and is done with WoW Classic entirely too.
Maitoz from APES has stated that they are quitting, and that the guild will essentially cease functioning.
A WoW veteran of 15 years, they've stated that 'enough is enough' and that the direction that Classic is taking isn't satisfying for the old guard.
Fellow guild member Prefoxfox said that the guild itself in-game will stick around for a bit to act as a casual social group.
Some members in the current APES roster might continue raiding later on.
However, that will only happen with major roster changes, reorganization and almost definitely a new guild and a new name.
