PostSubject: So you want to be a raider?   Wed Feb 09, 2011 9:52 pm


<Blood Stream> is a casual raiding guild. By which I mean we raid a couple of nights a week for a few hours. We're not on for six hours a night, every night, burning through end-game content as soon as we can for world, or even realm, firsts. And we're OK with that. We've got lives, and jobs, and fundamentally WoW is a hobby.

But even if we're not the hardest of hardcore raiders, we still aim to be professional, and that means we expect a certain degree of preparation and discipline when raiding. So here are a few things we thought ought to be written down for the benefit of prospective raiders.

How to not to conduct yourself in a raid:

Hey dudeezzz! Can I like raid with yoo? What epics drop herez? OMZG wtf? wipe? Fail group <rage quit>

The brutal truth about raiding:

  • You will wipe. Again and again and again.
  • And then you'll wipe some more.
  • You will be bored and frustrated.
  • You'll spend a lot of time researching tactics.
  • You will make mistakes
  • Other people will make mistakes
  • You will be confused
  • You will need to spend money on gear, enchants, gems, food, flasks and repairs
  • The items that drop from bosses will be unsuitable for your class or role

and

  • When you finally win, it will be awesome. Now stop looking so smug and move on to the next boss.
  • And yes, I swear to God that when we got the Lich King down he dropped two fist weapons and we had no rogue.

Check List for raiding with <Blood Stream>, Cataclysm 10-man normal:

  • You are able to devote 3 hours to the raid, from 21:00 to 00:00 realm time
  • You have appropriate raid-oriented user interface addons.
  • Your average equipped equipment item level is higher than i335
  • You are not wearing more than two items of PvP gear (resilience is futile)
  • You have gemmed and enchanted all your gear.
  • You are hit capped.
  • You have a sensible talent spec.
  • You have appropriate glyphs
  • You have sufficent reagents
  • You have sufficient class appropriate food buffs
  • You have sufficient class appropriate flasks
  • You have mana potions
  • You have water, Starfire Espress or similar (sometimes the mages are busy)

Got that? For our core raid team, we tend to supply feasts, cauldrons and other group consumables, but still: be prepared.

Oh yes, and also know how to play your class and what is expected of you on the boss. Simple as that.
