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 a guild Blackrock Foundry run. We have enough from our guild to run, but we're a small group and have room for more.

Our raid team is 10/10 on Normal and 9/10 on Heroic. This raid will be focused on gearing folks for the next raid tier. We'll be starting with a fresh raid and trying to get as far as we can in a single evening. We expect to down 6-7 bosses, at least.

Already Down

  • Nothing

    Up Next

  • Gruul
  • Oregorger
  • Beastlord
  • Hanz/Franz
  • Flamebender
  • Kromog
  • Operator Thogar
  • Iron Maidens
  • Blast Furnace

    This is a general guide of what we will be doing. The raid leader can/will modify what we are doing the night of the raid based on our progress.

    We've downed many of the bosses we'll be doing before. Our next progression target is heroic Blackhand.

    What We Expect

    Be sure to bring your positive attitude. If people have a poor attitude and are bringing the raid down, they'll be removed from the raid, regardless of how good their DPS meter says they are.

    You do not need to know the encounters ahead of time to join us, but a quick review of some strategy vidoes/guides would be much appreciated as it helps the raid move along much faster.

    Loot Rules

    Loot is done on a Main Spec over Off Spec open roll system with the caveat that, once you win a piece of gear, you can't win another until everyone else has won one. If a piece of gear goes unclaimed by those that haven't won, those that have already won are eligible to roll. This is very similar to suicide kings. This just helps distribute loot so that everyone can get some.

    If our raid composition favors one type of gear over others (e.g. the raid is 50% plate wearers), the loot system will be set to Personal Loot. This is done at the discretion of the raid leader.

    The goal is to get loot and spread it throughout the raid.

    Combat Logging

    All of our current (and past raids) are captured via Search for the guild "Forte" on the realm "Dawnbringer" to view the logs.

    Other Details

    We use Ventrilo as our chat server - you will be required to have Vent and an operable microphone to join us. Vent server details are available on OpenRaid as soon as you're approved to join this event.

    We raid from 8 PM (CST) to 11 PM (CST) and normally take a 10-15 minute break around 9:30. We begin forming up around 7:45 server time and try to do the first pull right at 8 (or before).

    NOTE: Some raiders have made mention to times being incorrect on OpenRaid. Regardless of what OpenRaid says, we will be using the times in the previous paragraph, which are all CST (Chicago time).

    On a Side Note:

    We were a 10-man guild in MoP. With the new flex system on Normal and Heroic, we are actively recruiting for full time raiders. We currently have 16 dedicated raiders on our team and a handful of others that regularly join from OpenRaid. If you are interested in joining our raid team, please contact me. You certainly do not need to permanently join our raid team to join us for this event.

    We've got a lot of DPS that have signed up for this raid. I'm going to try to bring as many along as we can hold, but I'm dependent on some of the folks that signed up as DPS to run as heals in order to make that happen. I've set a number of DPS to "standby" but, if we have enough healers, I'm going to invite as many as we can hold.
