WoD Preperation

Post by Iffi on Mon Jul 14, 2014 11:02 am

I have been sitting here thinking of things and trying to figure out what would be best for the guild as a whole. We are constantly missing someone on raid nights, which is fine because life happens, but is not conducive to our goals of killing heroics. I feel like 25m would put us in a better position for W.o.D. launch as it's easier to have a bench with 5 on it than all of a sudden needing 10-13 more people to engage in mythic raiding.

People seem somewhat content just focusing on current goals (whatever boss were on, get to Garrosh before 6.0) but I have to look further down the line than just that. Do I want to kill Garrosh? Fuck yes, but I also want to be in a position to be ready to be in on Mythic kills Day one it's available.

We have some choices we can make at this point.

#1: We can merge with another 10m or preferably two and start 25m asap. This would put us in a position where we start acclimating to the other people and build some synergy.

#2: We can apply as a unit to a current 25m guild. Might not work for everyone, so we may lose people doing this.

#3: We can continue trying to recruit, which quite honestly, has been pretty much fail at this point since we never, ever, ever, get any bites.

Those are the choices I think we currently have. If I missed anything please bring it up.

This will effect all of us, so I expect people to discuss this.

This would be the better evil of the three options. its easier to manage overflow then trying to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

As for goals? personal while getting Garrosh down would be fucking awesome, But I seek personal bragging rights among my peers, such as, (as an example), that extra 1% crit over Ashe or just generally out performing. Sure that's a bit ass minded of me, but a little competitive nature among friends never hurts. I seek to be the best of the best, that is always my goal with my Glacie.

D'awww I love you Glacie <

But in all honesty, 25 mans right now would kill us even more I think.

Perhaps merging with another 10m guild wouldnt be bad. We can try that. But if they are going to get butthurt over comments like that I made to that one mage you were talking about last night, they will not be suitable for our raid. Maybe its just me though.

As for progression wise: Basically what Glacie said. I do want to kill heroic Garrosh, but really it becomes obsolete here in a few months. The excitement is killing him early. At this point, I dont think we would get much satisfaction killing him as we would have a while ago. I mean, we will all be excited and shit of course, and it would be awesome to kill him pre 6.0.

I like how things are currently. We have Equis, Slayne, Hellios coming back, so theres an additional 3 people. That means we need to recruit like 3 or 4 people. I have a resto shammy that wants to raid (Lutraine) but his gear isnt up to par. Hes just as experienced as all of us.

Slater, Sav, Surf, Cheeko, Dalek, Ashe, Glacie, Dalek, Wreq, Hellios, Schloop, Carrasu, Slayne, Equis, Jilliumz, (Lutraine). Theres 15 - 16 people right there for 6.0. With 25ms dropping down to 20man, Im sure we can pick up a few.

That being said, joining with a current 25m wouldnt be bad. Cause come 6.0 they need to lose 5 people, and we need to gain 5 people. Find a 25m with the same exp as us, and I can see nothing wrong with it.

Also trying to power up le wife's toon to SoO Level,

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/w ... nic/simple

is the one we're working on, she also has

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/w ... hel/simple

Both under geared but could easily power them up to level of SoO for 6.0 and beyond. I know it would be a futile effort to get them up for current. but just saying we have some friends and family who can fill the missing roles <img src=" title="Very Happy" />

Merging is hard due to ego, so we would need to find a guild that would capitulate to us. 25 man is easier, more of a chance to get BiS, and if ppl want to bring in alts for a week its more doable

dont really care, just want to kill garrosh

This is big for me. I am completely bored tanking everything before Malk. Not trying to sound like a dick here but if we are not on progression I am wasting my time on farm.

I need a stupid trinket from Malk. Helm I think, from Thok, nothing on Seige, Nothing on Paragons. And nothing whatsoever from the 1-8.

Sort of been MIA for awhile so it's kind of hard to figure what we should do.
#1 There's usually always some sort of complications.
#2 Personally, this would fuck me since I've been gone for so long. Was talking to Iffi about maybe tanking for you guys on my Prot Pally but if we do this I'm fucked unless I app on my Boomkin or magically pull gear out of my ass.
#3 Its always a pain in the ass, but majority of the people atm is taken the rest of the xpac off till the next one. So you won't get much for bites till around 2-3 months before the xpac or Watch for people posting LFG.

Still kind of early to decide...#3, no matter how annoying, will be the route I would take. Merging with a group will just have conflicts of who's in charge, my personality doesn't match with his/hers blar blar blar. And the other one I would save as a last resort tbh, like 1-2 months before launch. Get Garrosh kill while trying to recruit and then 1-2 months before the xpac we have nothing find a guild to join

This is the exact opposite for me, not that either bothers me.

I believe we have about 2 months left before the new xpac currently. I'm estimating Sept 23rd now.

TBH no matter what time in the xpac it is or how long we wait it will be tough to recruit 10 more quality players, and really probably need to gain 15 more. With a larger raid you need a larger bench. There will be people out on a weekly basis, and to continue to raid at a full capacity you have to have people to bring in. People would rotate in and out based on what bosses they need or what comp is needed for the boss. I would say a safe roster to be at for WoD is 25-27.

I've always been a fan of being prepared for something you want to do so you don't fail, this is a good example of that, if we don't do anything, WoD will be here before we know it and we'll have a roster of 10.

We already have a bit more than 10 though don't we? If I counted correctly we have about 14-15 right?

Not that I'm aware of or would count toward a roster, I would go maybe 11.

Well I would make the 11th since you have someone sit out for me or someone has been absent since I started running with you guys. I have my shaman friend that makes 12... then there's Glacie and like 2 or more other people I heard were coming back for WoD so that's like 14-15 or more right there.
