COOP was December 30th, another great run led by Grimcow. There is a link to a Facebook stream on discord, along with lots of great pictures. Also, in the #events channel on AIE Discord there are some very nice pictures taken in the Alliance Snowglobe and with Great Father Winter in IronForge.

NOOB raid is back for 2018! They had a full group and downed four bosses in ToS normal. If you are interested in NOOB raid, contact Dankinia in discord or on twitter- they run on Saturdays at 11 server time, the only requirements is that you are level 110 and want to have fun!
