What we're doing...

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

We're having issues with members not correctly performing mechanics (including return members from our last heroic group). I need everyone to:

1) review your class/spec for BiS pieces (ie - know your stat priority) and roll on the appropriate pieces and not rolling primarily on ilvls (your roll might be lessening someone else's potential)

2) review the strats and videos for fights you're struggling on (listed below or feel free to review your site of choice). At this point in time our RL shouldn't need to explain fights in detail. Everyone is expected to know the fights

3) LISTEN to our Raid Lead and do as requested. Do not take it upon yourself to change given tasks to suit your needs

Tonight we're going to get through Lower as quickly as possible and go directly to Socrethar and return to Xhul for progression. After completing these we may return to Normal and work on clearing upper - tbd.

  • 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.

  • If you've read this tell me what your favorite cookie is! :D

  • 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.

  • 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:

    6/4 - 7/13 need to focus on mechanics and listen to RL
    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**

    Several members haven't read the event/commented. Going forward, I'm asking all members to read at least the first couple of paragraphs to verify information hasn't changed. I'll make some indication where new information ends and repeated event information starts. Thanks

    I still don't have internet at home (posting this from work) so I am still unable to show up. I *should* be up for next week though. I'll keep you updated.

    I had great fun at today's raid (: (despite my crappy DPS ;p) I won't be able to make next week as I'll be away on holiday, but I'd love to join you guys again the week after! Thanks for having me today ;D (Will definitely review strats on the bosses in the later half again heh).
