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...

This is not a fresh raid. We will update the progress of this raid after the previous raid from this week's lockout has completed.

Though this group has killed several of the bosses in SoO in Heroic Mode, please note that we still consider this group a progression group on ALL encounters. We are looking for raiders with exceptional numbers and a good attitude. There will be wipes as we are bringing new heroic raiders into the instance with us. The core group of this raid along with the raid leader are quite patient. If you are not patient, or if you are expecting to one-shot all of the encounters, do not sign up for this group. This group is intended to evaluate applicant players and possible recruits for the next expansion.

We intend to invite and retain players who we feel are a good fit for our group, and these raids serve as auditions for future raids going into the next expansion.

We are using Mumble for this raid (not Ventrilo), and we will not take you unless you have Mumble installed and at least able to listen to the raid leader. You must be setup and know that your Mumble client works prior to raid. Do NOT expect us to be your Technical Support Desk 5 minutes before raid. We would appreciate it if you took care of any technical issues in advance.

Group begins forming and summoning up to 15 minutes prior to the posted start time. The first pull will be no later than 15 minutes after the posted start time, but we intend to pull as close to the posted start time as possible. If at the posted start time, you are not online, I will replace you with someone on the reserves list, and you will be marked as absent. If you have done your research on me, you will note that I have a 100% attendance to all events I create and sign up for, and I have committed my time to putting on events on OpenRaid. The feedback and history on my profile confirms this. If you cannot commit to showing up on time to my raid, don't bother signing up. Please show respect to me and to the others who have committed to coming to this event by committing yourself as well, should you decide to sign up.

We will END at the posted end time regardless of current progress of this group, as other future raids are possibly scheduled after this event. We will do our best to finish the entire raid, but as most of you know, even with the best conditions, sometimes, though not very often, bad luck comes into play. This is just a required disclaimer, and not an indication of any predicted result. We hope for awesome, but we sometimes don't get it. No matter how you look at it, PuGs are a factor.

Wipes are expected to occur as we are raiding content that still requires much attention and skill. Having said that, we have a 3 wipe policy for these types of raids. After 3 wipes, we will evaluate the reason for our wipes. Please understand that if you are the reason we are wiping, we will ask you to leave the group and be replaced. We don't do this because we want to be mean or elitist, but because the time of your fellow raiders is valuable. We want to be an effective raid team, and will help you with any problems in your play, but this may have to wait for another date should we ask you to leave group. We will of course spend time after raid to help you understand any mechanics or help you with your character. We do these raids to help fellow players, and hope you understand our intentions.

Loot Reserves: None (We do Main Spec > Off Spec > Disenchant)

We will be in Master Looter mode. The Raid Leader will announce all items in Raid Warnings Chat. All players have an equal chance of winning a piece loot, as long as they roll at the correct time for their correct active spec. Rolling rules will be explained further in Mumble prior to the start of the raid.

Regardless of how many people sign up, we encourage you to still sign up even if the raid appears full. Reserves are often taken when there are a lot of no-shows on the approved listing. Reserves will begin receiving Battletag invites 1 minute after the posted start time (should we need to fill in any additional slots). We urge you, if you are on reserve to go to the stream channel listed below. Listening in and watching the stream will give you real time progress on the status of the raid, and may increase your chances of being invited if you are on reserve.

Final note: We believe in "keeping the game fun." We enjoy ourselves while raiding, and hope you feel the same about having a blast while raiding. Having said that, we do not tolerate elitists, mean-spirited people, trolls, etc. We reserve the right to choose what type of people we play with online. Please keep that in mind. Be kind to your fellow gamer.

This raid will be streamed on one of the channels below (at the discretion of the raid leader). Please check BOTH channels, as I may be streaming on one or the other. Stream will start around 10 minutes prior to the posted start time.

If you speak in Mumble or make any action in game in front of the raid leader, it will be seen and heard on the stream channel(s), view-able by anyone on the Internet. Please note that we (myself and OpenRaid) will not be responsible for any negative outcomes resulting from our streams.

Please log in before signing up for this raid.

I am extremely, EXTREMELY, sorry: this is terrible, and very unusual, atypical, exceptional from me. I am so sorry: I was late to two raid-nights, missing one of them.... I am very sorry. |...I've been trying to log on for 30-40 minutes now (as of time of posting), but...connection issues; and based on forum posts, those issues have apparently been going on for at least - likely much longer - than an hour. ...Basically, connection issues ensured I couldn't make it. BUT...I was late because I was unwell, ill - I tried, but failed to be up in time for this raid. I am very sorry.
