What we're doing...

OVERVIEW: Garrosh-only kill for heirlooms. This is intended to be a fast and efficient run. A-games are expected for all classes, roles, and players, regardless of gear or alt/main status.

PREPARATION: As always, a threat meter and some boss encounter add-on (e.g. DBM, VEM, Big Wigs) are absolutely required. We will also be utilizing OpenRaid's vent for this event so make sure you have the program installed and updated in advance.

Be online and ready to go 10-15 minutes prior. This means flasks, potions, food, gear, upgrades, etc. We will start clearing trash as soon as possible so we can pull the boss quickly. I should have a lockout ready.

You will be expected to know what you need to do for your class and role. We will utilize the traditional ping-pong strategy for phase 1 and 2 as well as the normal left-right raid split for jade serpent temple and red crane temple intermissions.

We will stack on our boss tank in p3, kite the boss out of weapon aoe, spread for whirling corruption and adds, and stack back up one they are dead to aoe mind controlled raiders. Lather, rinse, repeat until he's dead.

ROSTER: First and foremost, the item level requirement is firm - do not sign up with a high-geared main and ask to bring a 530 alt - sign up with the toon you will be bringing, or you will be ignored. After ilvl, I will be looking at an optimal group comp.

I don't mind a few lower ilvl alts if we have people with exceptional ilvls to even out the damage and healing, but as this is meant to be quick and painless, if we have now than one wipe and if your performance is found wanting, you will be replaced without warning. Bring your a-game

RESERVES: No reserves. You may roll 'Need' for MS, 'Greed' for OS, or pass. This is not a transmog run.

RAID NOTES: If there is enough interest and sufficiently high ilvl sign ups, I will consist converting this to a 25 man run. Regardless, it is my intention to hold 2-3 Garrosh kill events from the time the pre-patch launches to the drop of WoD.

This may seem lengthy and exhaustive for a single-boss, but I want to trim the fat and quell doubts up front in order to have a smooth run with minimal explanations and lots of win. As a final emphasis, this run is primarily for people looking for BoAs. Do not sign up getting excited about gear upgrades or hoping to claim the AotC achievement for the first time.
