So Highmaul is getting very close now! The 3rd of December is not far off, and that means real game is about start for us raiders.
What are our goals and expectations for the coming weeks and even a bit more into the future?
As always the goal is to provide a raiding scene for the guy’s with a busy life, commitments etc, but still get to see most of the raiding content. What this means is we do want peeps to be prepared, have the best gear they can realistically get, bring food, pots and flasks to raid’s. Don’t even bother to show up for raids if you have not taken the time to at least get the basics right for killing a boss.
This is about respecting the time of your fellow raiders.
When everyone else has taken a night off to raid, they are not interested in wiping because you didn't bother to get hold of those small items, ask a friendly guildie for help, put the hard yards in now when it came to HC's/CM's. All these things will make a huge difference when everyone has them. A fully flasked, prepotted, well geared and well feed raid is what we want to see in the coming weeks.
This will also be reflected when we approve the groups. Be warned if you are not pulling your weight you will probably end up sitting the bench. In practice that means that as a tank/healer we want players who understand their rotations, do not stand in stupid, use interrupts etc, the basics really, and if you are DPS, bring the numbers. But don't forget, a dead raider is no use to anyone!!
So this might have you worried that you won’t get to raid? Our raiding roster has not been this big for a long time, and there is only 20(25 to cover to people who can't make it etc) mythic spots to go around, and 30 spots for hc raids. So if you want to be in the progression runs you will have to work hard for your spot, simple as that.
But fear not, we are a fairly casual guild and your time will come even if you might not take part in the progression history have shown that our members often end up whit the cutting edge achievement.
Lastly, remember we want to have fun playing this game, raiding should foremost be fun and to ensure that even wiping is fun, they should be from learning the fights as a guild and a team, not the silly stuff mentioned above. Right?
Good luck every one, may the loot gods be with you!
O btw, the officers are all super hyped to start raiding again! (can you tell?? :D)
One tiny side note : If you feel that you aren't getting enough chances to do HC's with guildies you do have one of 2 options
1) Contact an officer
2) Make a group yourself and pug the rest..
Please note if you contact an officer, but haven't bothered to try and make a group yet, we will not go easy of you, the responsibility is on each individual to be ready before the 3rd of December, but as a guild collectively we aim to help each other as best we can!!
Lets kill the bastard.
