Relaxed atmosphere where players do not require any instruction to complete content.


Content is clearly explained before each pull, many wipes may be possible while learning the encounter as a team.


Brief explanations may be given, but players are expected to understand fight mechanics and how their role/class is played. Some wipes may be possible while progressing.


All players are expected to be geared and knowledgeable about all aspects of the encounter. Wipes and mistakes may cause players to be replaced.

What we're doing...

About this raid
This run is intended to be a full run of Siege of Orgrimmar Flex raid. This is a 5 hour run where we will get down all 14 bosses of SoO. Will expect to take roughly:
45 minutes in P1
45 mins - 1 hour in P2
1 hour - 1 and a half in P3
2 hours in P4
The above is not an exact timing, but it's what I will be expecting. There will be short breaks between each part (not randomly).
All people signing for this raid are expected to turn up for all parts

Is this raid for me?
I expect everyone signing up to this raid to have fully optimized gear, a full understanding of your role (dps/healer/tank) for all bosses in the raid, patience, especially when we get to the later parts - wipes may and probably will be expected, so ragers/rage quitters will not be tolerated. If you need to go afk every 5 minutes, it's also not for you! ;)

If you want any chance of being accepted to this run, requirements are as follows:
- Have Ventrilo installed, ready to use, and able to listen, and understand english (mic not required).
- At least 510 item level, fully enchanted, gemmed and reforged. (Will be checking).
- Knowledge of all bosses in this instance.
- Patience.

Although it's not required preference may be given to:
- 515 + item level, fully enchanted gemmed and reforged.
- People who have written notes on signup explaining experience/fight knowledge + anything else.

Message to people on reserves
Being on reserve DOES NOT mean that you're not coming. From previous experience of leading these runs, there's usually some no-shows on raid start, often there is DCs mid run, or there may perhaps be someone that we need to replace. For this reason I ask that ALL reserves at the very least stay online up to 10 minutes after raid start. It's also nice if you can stay online during the raid, because I have needed to switch people in mid-raid in the past, so it's nice if there's someone I can instantly replace with, although this isn't required.

Approving People
Approves: You are definitely receiving an invite to this event. Friend requests start 30 minutes before the raid - if you are still not online 10 minutes before (without giving me previous notice that you will be in fact arriving on time or UP TO 5 minutes late), your spot may be forfeit.
Reserves: You met all of my requirements and possibly preferences, but there is just not simple enough room in the run to bring you along (this is nothing personal). You may be added to the approves list if one of the approves drop out. You may stay on the reserves list but receive a friend request from me, either 5-10 minutes before raid start, at raid start, or somewhere during the raid where I may ask if you can step in. The last one isn't required, although preferred. Any reserves that don't accept 5-10 minutes before raid start/at raid start will be given 'no show' feedback. If you do not hear from me 10 minutes after raid start, assume you do not have a spot (but may be needed later on).
Not Approved: Either you signed up after I sorted the roster (in which case I will either move you to reserves or keep you in not approved pretty soon), or you did not meet the requirements somehow (see above).

Loot Rules
Need before Greed.
[Need] - You need this item for your mainspec. Main Spec = the spec you're playing in this run.
[Greed] - Offspec/Transmog
[Disenchant] - Please don't select disenchant.
Abusing loot rules will probably result in negative feedback and/or removal from the raid (if you do not correctly resolve the issue).

Friend requests will start at least 30 minutes before the raid. If you are not online still by 10 minutes before the raid starts without previous notice, your spot may be forfeit.
