Let's Talk Raiding

Post  Pufftrees on Mon Dec 01, 2014 11:04 am

So normal and heroic difficulty opens up Tuesday, our raid is scheduled for 8 EST (5 pacific)... which for half the year is 6 Arizona 0_o

Normal and Heroic difficulty both are "Flex" raids, which means we can don't need exactly 10 or 25... I am guessing we may have around 15 on raid night.  We are expecting people to have around ilvl 630, which should equate to nearly all heroic gear and then the epic ring.  Don't plan to show favorites for people with ilvl 640, but if you are 615-620 you might get ostricized.

This isn't old slax where we raid for 5 hours a night 5 nights a week.  We want more effective, efficient raiding.  3 hours is about all we plan to go... so please have those 3 hours available.  If you need to Beherit and change your car oil mid pulls, please say something.

Pre Raid Check List:

-  Find a good site to min max your spec.  Icy veins or Noxxic will work.  Just simply search "Arms PVE DPS guide Noxxic" or something and it will bring it up.  No need to spec Nazi but you should know your rotation (don't just assume you figured it out while leveling).  Please be humble, and spend 15 minutes or so reading how to maximize your effectiveness.  This also applies to tanks and heals.  TLDR - Proper glyphs, spec, and rotation


-  Do a quick read up on the bosses.  Mmo-champion has a nice list.  

-  Get your 680 epic ring.  If you don't have this, make sure you are on the quest chain.  Do the dailies in your garrison for 1000 apexis crystals.  Once you have your 680 ring you get a quest for the raids... would be nice to be on this quest right when raids open.

-  Raid specific consumables.  I honestly don't even know whats out there anymore, but I plan to bring some older strength flasks and food, pretty much anything to boost your chars abilities.

-  Try to block out 3 hours of your time.  This is the most important thing.  3 hours is plenty of time to do effective raiding if everyone is engaged and good to go.  


Please add anything you wish to remind people of!

Hello:

Puff added 99% of needed to be said. aditionally, here are some interesting links mentioned on the previous post:

MMO-Champion: http://www.mmo-champion.com/content/

on the main post there is a list of all the highmaul bosses, please focus on Kargath fight. you can check the video if you click on his portrait. AFAIK he is the first boss, so we will eventually get there tomorrow.

Noxxic Website : http://www.noxxic.com/wow

It has a nice in-deep walkthrough for all PVE specs for every class (glyphs, talents, enchants, etc.). Make sure you visit and review your class, believe me it comes in handy.

Icy Veins, same as Noxxic: http://www.icy-veins.com/wow/

About the consumables, ive been using panda food/flasks. i havent leveled my cooking so i dunno if theres anything worth mentioning. if you got something to share it would be helpful.

Merm.

I guess the Panda Flasks and foods are available on the auction house?

Can you or someone buy some off the AH for the raid and we can use the bank to pay back.  We can setup something better as we get going.

Edit: i went to the AH to check on the consumables and on cooking food. I was surplised how nerfed cooking is leveling wise. i got from 550 to 700 in like 15 mins with 200g.

cooking has 2 kind of food: the one that gives +75 to single stat (agi, haste, intel, etc), to secondary stats (versatility, multistrike, etc.) and the "good ones" that gives 100 to those stats mentioned before.

i will make/purchase off of the AH for most classes and get them into the guild bank, from there we can spread them to guildies. i will look into flasks and see whats the new deal. if we got an alchemist with some knowledge please let us know.

Blizzard still wiping to the maintenance boss.

I'm here just stuck on Retrieving Character List. Don't know if it'll be solved before 7.

We all in same boat.

Zed and I got on right when server came back up, were able to get out of garrison and do the world boss.  But when we went back to town the griffon was gone, and hearth was broke.. Crashed shortly after.

Character not found!

haha, man so many classic lines have come out of the years of raiding


Plan tonight will be to start a fresh normal.  The people who got loot in heroic last night won't get loot off first boss, but the people who were out due to server lag etc can get a chance to get on.  The plan will be to try and clear normal mode this week.  The second boss is just a gear check so there is no real value in banging our heads against it on heroic.

Hopefully servers will behave Smile
