OpenRaid - Meira's Learning Raid


You have private messages. Click to view them. You can access the forum via 'Board index'. See 'OpenRaid/My Account/Preferences' to change this behaviour.


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...

After Taking about a 2 week break from this, I'm coming back stronger and hopefully better at leading WoW raids. With 6.2 coming soon with Mythic Dungeons, I'm going to schedule only 1 raid per faction then have mythic dungeon events on other days. (Mythic dungeons will have a weekly lockout like Raids)

So, until 6.2 comes out we will alternate between Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry. Once Hellfire Citadel opens up, I'll include that raid in the rotation but I will not focus on Citadel until you guys have cleared all of Normal Highmaul and Blackrock foundry.

This is a Learning Raid group, so wipes are bound to happen.

Important Videos to Watch: (note: videos dont teach you how to react to boss abilities but they help you learn what to do. Reacting to boss abilities just takes practice and some people are slower, some people are faster at doing this.)

Imperator Mar'gok:

Blackrock Foundry Fatboss Videos:

Also, for new people to my raid groups, to get invited to the raid, you have to look in Premade Groups (group finder in game) and search for Meira/Mord's Learning raid #openraid then sign up with Openraid in your note.
(if you cannot see my listing, hop in mumble and talk to me or chat (in the mumble chat box) and ill get you an invite).

Loot Method will be voted on before we start, if Personal or Need before Greed. I dont use Master looter because i dont want to deal with Loot Distribution.

I dont put an emphasis on Gear requirements because Raiding is less about gear and less about dps/HPS and more about responding to the boss abilities.

Changing this to HIghmaul Heroic because Foundry is too unforgiving. This is a LEARNING Raid so if wiping on bosses is a problem, DO NOT SIGN UP.

Normal Highmaul Ilvl req: 630
Normal Blackrock Foundry req: 650
Normal Hellfire Citadel: ??
Mythic Dungeons: ??

Please log in before signing up for this raid.

The latest update extends the service restoration time by another hour. I'm marking myself as Not Coming since it's looking unlikely I'll be on in time. Best of luck to everyone.

I'm in one of the places in Texas that got hit by rough weather this week. I arrived home to find that my Internet and cable are out. Provider estimates service will be restored in the next hour, so I might yet be able to attend. If not, my apologies. I'll update this as I know more.
