What to Expect

What we Expect in a Raider

Still working on this, but here’s the deal. We want to play the game, kill dragons, and still progress while doing other things. We’ve killed heroic LK and don’t want to raid 16-20+ hours anymore. This is like the guys you play PS3 with at your house. You need to learn how to be a good player, that why we raid. You should learn the player skills it takes to be successful while pushing new and even farming content, that’s what we expect from each other.

This game is about fun and for some of us, fun is derived from success, and pride in that success. We won't ever be server firsts, but we should strive to clear all raid content as best we can in every tier. In order to achieve that goal, it will require not only a certain type of player but a dedicated attitude, consistent level of performance, and the initiative to do what you need to in order to be prepared going into progression content. Here are some things to keep in mind.

Knowing your class inside and out is imperative. You should be up to date on the latest theory-crafting and know what's coming in the next patch as well and be prepared. I know some people believe they can do all their own theory-crafting, but there is no way that you know more than a community of intelligent people working together to figure things out. If you need help with something, just ask!

Joking around in raid a bit is fine, but if it in any way affects performance then it has gone too far. We should be focused on the job at hand and putting all of our concentration into that. Being able to joke when it’s appropriate and serious when it’s appropriate will make a HUGE difference in your performance.

You need a good level of situational awareness. Don’t be a grid/recount/rotation zombie. You should at least know everything that is going on in the encounter that affects your character but should also understand what is going on with everyone else.

Coming to the raid FULLY  prepared is expected and required. Have consumables ready to go and be in the instance ready to go at start time.  Logging off your alt onto your main at 1 minute before the pull and asking for summons should be the very rare exception to how you normally play. Doing this is really not fair to the rest of your team!

Do your research on progression fights in advance. We want to be able to get right to work on strategies and don’t want (or need to) be continuously wasting time explaining how a fight works to you every time we enter the same boss fight, that's your job. If we get to a boss that we have done at least twice, and you feel the need to say “So, how does this fight work again?” then you are in the wrong.

Learn from other people's mistakes, not just your own. This is huge and goes back to situational awareness. The faster we learn fight mechanics the faster the boss dies, its as simple as that. If everyone has to fail at every mechanic every single time before learning it, it's not going to be a pleasant raiding experience for anyone. If you see someone mess up one a particular mechanic and do the same thing they did the next time, then you aren’t doing your job.

Be prepared to take constructive criticism when you continuously mess up. We aren’t going to be douchebags about it, but we do expect you to pay attention and learn from it. If you get butt hurt about constructively being told how to improve yourself then raiding is probably not a good place for you. We will bring data to back up our claims to help guide you, please study and learn this data. Nobody is perfect, but if you don’t know you are doing something wrong then there is no way you can fix it. This is why we try to help you learn what you need to know about raiding.

Remember, being in a raid group isn’t a right, its a privilege. Other guildmates might be waiting on the bench to join the raid team, so if we feel that if you aren’t learning the best you can or holding up your end we will most likely end up needing to replace you. We aren’t going to kick you to the curb for a couple of bad nights, but if we see an ongoing issue we will need to talk to you about it. If you can’t get it fixed, or are not willing to do so, we will have no choice but to replace you; you would want us to replace someone if you were the guildmate waiting for a spot to open.

We have a performance review of everyone in the group on an individual basis and have a friendly member critique thread on the forums where you can tell us what you need to work on and we can tell you what you are doing, right and wrong, from our viewpoint. We have developed an environment where everyone is comfortable saying “What can I do to be better” and everyone else being there to tell them in a constructive manner. We take pride in that.

This is a work and progress and we may add or take away more in the future, but for now, this is the basics of what we expect from you as a raider.

Website Assistance
The 'Donations Goal' is the monthly fee that runs this Website without ads. Additional funds go towards helping with Contests, Raffles, or even assisting a guildmate pay his/her subscription for a month.

You can donate through PayPal, which allows for one time payments or set up monthly recurring payments. By donating even $1 a month would go a long way in reaching our monthly goal. Twenty members doing this would mean the site would be covered at all time.
