Relaxed atmosphere where players do not require any instruction to complete content.

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...

Our new schedule will ALWAYS include killing N Arch (for ring upgrades) and then continue into Heroic.

Our focus tonight will be clearing as much of HFC as possible. So let's put on our game faces, limit afk's (I really don't want to see the same couple of people afking for every trash pull - roll on loot and move with the group towards next boss) and concentrate on mechanics we all know will are in play!

  • Raid selection will be at the discretion of the RL's for the best possible composition and those that have run with us in the past will have priority over others. Additionally, the RL can remove those that are not performing adequately, unable to perform boss mechanics and those that are not performing up to expectations may not be invited back.

  • Most of us will be running alts while others will be on mains.

  • There will be brief explanations on how each boss is expected to be handled from our main group's experience, we'll adjust as needed.

  • All characters should be properly enchanted and gemmed for progression. You are expected to be flasked and have the appropriate runes.

  • You are expected to be at the raid entrance before start time and not relying on a summons.

  • We will be using Open Raid's Mumble (information is found further below) - make sure you have this installed and ready for use at start time. Information on how to enter my private room will be given at the beginning of the raid (once everyone is in the raid group). It's come to my attention that Mumble's information doesn't always show below the event description, therefore:

    Voicechat Information
    We will use OpenRaid's Mumble server:
    Port: 64738
    Password: raidopen

  • Btag invites go out early on Saturday afternoon. I send out a bnet broadcast at 6:45pm Eastern requesting all those approved to send me a tell with the auto-invite word for invites. Reserves are contacted closer to 7:00pm as needed.

  • Loot will be Masterloot - Let's be considerate of others, if you've already gotten an item think of passing the next item to another raid member. Furthermore, I reserve the right to assign loot to someone other than the roll winner IF X person has won numerous items and another member has not won anything. We have implemented the following rule when rolling on tier; roll Need for tier you currently do not have and roll Greed for tier you'd like a chance on warforged/sockets/bonus stats. We hold the right to refuse a token to a raid member if they've misused the above system.

  • If you've read this tell me who your favorite RL is! :D

  • Lastly, we're here to enjoy ourselves. If you have a suggestion, please let us know (new ideas will be considered and are welcomed). On the other hand, negativity, talking out of place and/or arguing with the RL's won't be tolerated and may result in removal from the raid. Also, this is more of a family group of raiders, I ask that we keep the language to a minimum for those innocent ears. ;)

    Please review HFC bosses on your website of choice, or you can use either of the following links for a general overview of each boss: (great yet simple overview of all bosses)

    We're hoping to build on this group through Heroic HFC as progression allows us. See you all soon!!

    Even if the raid appears full (ie we have enough of 'X' position), PLEASE SIGN UP!! The group is flexible with what we may bring to complete the raid composition. Thanks!!!

    Raid progression:

    5/28 - unofficial run with a mixed group - full Heroic clear.
    5/21 - cleared Lower and got Socrethar down. Yay!!!
    5/14 - full clear plus first three bosses on Heroic
    5/7 - full clear, very nicely done. One last week of normal farming for gear and we're moving into Heroics!
    4/30 - full clear! Great work!
    4/23 - H Assualt w/ attempts on H IR, then switched back to Normal and got 9/13
    4/16 - full clear!
    4/2 - 11/13 for the first night. Great job all.

    **This group has completed 13/13 H HFC, as well as 10/10 Normal BRF and 9/10 Heroic with attempts on H Blackhand before AotC was removed**

    @ Hachi - omgosh, so sorry to hear it. I just went through that frustration on a lesser scale (vcard was going bad so had the replacement sent to me). To be without your like death. Hope it's an easy fix and you're back up and running soon! We'll miss you!
