HFC Week #40


About this raid
Some members of the raid team will have done the fights, some will not have. Either way, we will approach this as a casually-progressive group. Number one goal is to have some fun, learn the boss fights, and, ideally, down a bunch of bosses. As such, it goes without saying that there's a good chance we will wipe a lot. If you want a 13/13 clear, this probably is not the raid for you. I mean, it'd be cool if we did clear 13/13, but I doubt it'll happen.


Contact
Sometimes I find that the openraid addon does not send out friend requests correctly. Please add me if you do not have a pending request from me by the start of this raid (or if I'm not already on your battle.net list). My battletag is: tnedor#1763

I am also almost always logged in to the discord server listed above. If you have any questions, you can connect to the server and send me a direct message there. You can do so by clicking my handle in the list on the right side, and selecting "Message" in the dialog box that comes up.


Invites
Invites are done using the openraid addon. If I miss sending you an invite, please send me a battlenet message and I will send out the invite.

Preparations / Expectations
I expect that you will have flasks and/or pots available for any boss attempts, as required. 100 Stat feasts will be provided before boss pulls as required. I have listed links to fight videos below; Please use them to be aware of the basic mechanics and anything that might pertain to your specific class. I expect people to be able to join discord for voice communication. You will need to be able to listen at the very least for any fight instructions / strategy / plans, etc. I will happily explain boss mechanics; If you are unaware / unsure of any part of an upcoming boss fight, please ask me in discord, or a private whisper in game, and I will explain before we pull the boss.

I usually try to avoid too many breaks during the listed 3 hours of raid. We will do an official breaks of 5 mins approximately at the 1 and 2 hour marks. However, if you need to step away for a quick break before, please do so during trash pulls, and please mention in raid chat that you are stepping away. I do however expect that you will be around for most of the trash pulls, and might occasionally step away for one or two for a quick bio, etc.

If there is a known event (personal real life or alternate game event) that means that you might have to leave early, please mark it in your comment when signing up. If something comes up while raiding, please let me know before you drop out of raid. I understand internet / power loss and sudden offlines in game, so don’t sweat it too much if something like that happens and you are unable to communicate it to me :)

I noted this earlier, but we aim to have fun doing this. I will not tolerate raging, loot drama, etc. I consider personality fit paramount for our group, way above skill or item level.

If you are signing up on a main and intend to take an alt, please note that in your comment. I need to have the following details provided at signup: Character Name, Class, Spec, Average Equipped iLevel; If I have any questions, I will send a private message via openraid and I will expect a reply before I approve to the raid.


Final Roster confirmations are done on Friday and Saturday morning.


Plan for the day
This is week #16 of Heroic HFC; Plan is to start on Upper Citadel.

I will explain basic strategies for each fight where necessary in as straightforward a way as I can. Having said that, you should watch the videos at the bottom of this entry to familiarise yourselves with the fights if necessary. In the interest of progression, if I deem that you are constantly failing on a basic fight mechanic, or your output is consistently below what the boss scaling requires, I will ask you to sit out. This does NOT affect your invite to any of my future raids.

Misc
I will start to remove most of my openraid friends from my bnet friends list now on a weekly basis. This is mostly so that I have space on my bnet list to add people rather than doing a bunch of housecleaning at the start of every raid. Please watch for bnet pending invites within the last hour or so of raid, and if you are accepted to the raid, please send me a request if you do not see a pending request from me. My bnet tag is: tnedor#1763.
