What we're doing...

CANCELLED -- Real Life Boss is kicking my butt.

To all - I feel pretty bad about this, but a post-work booze and schmooze event came up that I need to be at. It starts at 8 pm, so I will be unavailable to run the raid tonight. I am sorry, but I have to cancel the event AGAIN. I will not reschedule another event until I know for sure that I will be ready to go. I will be on late though - like 11 pm. I can run a mythic dungeon or two if anyone is bored. I will also be on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and I am willing to start a Group Finder pug of heroic lower citadel if anyone is around. I'll send out broadcasts for it.

Normal HFC Run from 9:00-11:00 pm
Manny and Archi Progression
Invites will go out around 8:45 pm

About Us:
We are a filthy casual group. We lust/tranq on trash routinely, but it's usually because one of us is cracking up everyone else. Occasionally, we kill bosses. If you know the fights, that's great and you are welcome to come and give pointers. If you are new or inexperienced you are also welcome - we will take you under our filthy wings. I only ask that you work with the group, follow instructions, be respectful of others, and most importantly, have a good time. We have no room for drama or ragers.

Boss Order:
We will aim to down Manny and then work on Archi. PLEASE WATCH ARCHI VIDEOS. I will explain both fights in detail, but to get moving a bit quicker it will help if everyone has an idea of how the fight will go.

Loot:
I am setting to personal loot for this run. Everyone will get a chance at something since nearly everyone in raid can use it.

Composition:
I prefer at least 3 heals and am willing to go up to 5, so we could have anywhere from 7 dps - 18 dps. Typically I'll pull in reserves (if we have any) right around raid start, but if I mark you as a reserve and you're not feeling it, just unsign.

Voice Communication:
We use Mumble. You do not have to speak but you MUST listen for callouts and our inane banter.

Add Ons:
You MUST have DBM, BigWigs or some other equivalent boss mod installed. No exceptions. These tools are far too helpful to not use, especially for a group that only raids together 4 hours a week (and sometimes less).

Either the Iskar Assist Addon or Exorsus Raid Tools from www.curse.com is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I personally use Iskar Assist, but whatever helps you pass the eye quickly is fine by me - even if you use the default raid frames and the extra action button from the eye. I just don't want the eye being held by one person for 30 seconds while bombs go off or people get blown off the edge.

Misc Items:
We will have feasts available, you should bring flasks, pots, and any runes you might have. 125 stat food would be advisable, though not required.

We curse and tell dirty jokes and whatnot. We occasionally make tongue-in-cheek comments on potentially sensitive topics. Our conversations often remind me of happy hour, complete with the alcohol. If you are easily offended, this may not be the raid for you. That said, I will not tolerate hate speak. This hasn't really been a problem in the past, and I'd like to keep it that way. If this sounds like your bag, then come have some fun and progress with just a little bit o' stress.

I am *pretty* sure we will have another tank available, though I am unsure about whether he is going to sign on OR. So We should be OK for this run. For those looking to gear alts, or just to fool around, I will probably make a lower HFC run for Sunday.

I'm more than willing to switch over to my tank on an as needed basis. 700ish Ilvl, but missing some pieces before I'd say he was raid ready.

Giving this another try. Seems like Thursdays might work better for some people, so maybe I'll just shave our raid time to Thursday and dedicate it to progression. Once we get Archi down as a group. Hopefully we will be able to do it on the reg. Perhaps I will make old content raids for Sundays - something where I can solo tank it, or we can roll through without the requisite number of people and just relax. At least until we get another reliable tank.
