[A-US] Tuesday "learning raids" on OpenRaid

4 posts in this topic

Would you like to learn to raid but don't know where to start, don't have a guild team to help you, or are intimidated by the pugs in LFG?


I am running Alliance Tuesday "learning raids" on OpenRaid, a website for organized wow events. Sign up to get a small taste of "real" raiding and work on learning the fights, learning your spec, and learning what raiding is all about.


If you would like to join, you will need to create OpenRaid profile on


You can see my raid events on OpenRaid in my profile: Click "Upcoming Raids" on the Left-hand side menu

I'll keep making these for Tuesdays. These might be cancelled early on if we don't get enough sign ups but I will keep making them until we have a group going.


I can be contacted @ RudeByFiat#1329


There are other learning raids on OpenRaid -- Mordecai runs 2 raids a week one for Alliance and one for Horde. See his thread here:



About me and about this event:


My name is Morganna, GM and RL of <TenPercentMoreDelicious> (we are moving to Sargeras!) that was 10/14M in SoO, AotC in HM and BRF and our team is 5/13 H HFC. I made the Tuesday learning raids because of the "That's right, I'm scared to join LFM groups" thread on General forums.


I'm not a pro-raider but I like the challenge of raiding and I like the social aspect of it. I was a total noob keyboard turning in LFR about 2 years ago until I decided to try raiding through OpenRaid. In a few months I went from being totally clueless to leading my own Normal (Heroic) team. We are taking a break from raiding so I thought I could try starting a learning group.


People seem to be afraid to try out "real" raiding. If that is the case, my event is for those who are actually interested in learning in a friendly non-intimidating environment.


However, this is NOT a carry group. We will discuss strategy, mechanics, what went wrong, what needs to be improved, and players will be asked to perform things like interrupts, dispels, etc.


If you sign up, you will be given feedback and will be expected to make sincere efforts to learn and improve as we work through the encounters. All fights will be logged to and anyone interested in feedback about their play or what they need to work on will be welcome to contact me after the raid.


Finally, this is NOT a group for people who are impatient, elitist, or generally obnoxious. There will be wipes and we might not actually kill anything.


Thanks for reading and hope to see some of you at my events!

Often, it's easier to get called a noob a few times and experience the fight. It sucks that people do it, but it does happen. As long as you get to see the fight, I'd just join a normal pug and do the first wings. They're not that challenging and you'll get a feel for the raid.

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      Currently we are using the EPGP system ( The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), EPGP Lootmaster, DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION

      About Oops All Baddies: 5/7 Heroic
      <Oops All Baddies> is a newly formed late night raiding guild on Thrall US. Most of us have extensive raiding experience dating back to Wrath of the Lich King and Cataclysm. At that time we were competing for top US ranking. We don’t expect to be competing on that level anymore, but we are expecting to clear all raiding content while it’s relevant while also maintaining an enjoyable semi-hardcore environment.
      We ask that if you are interested in applying that you keep Three things in mind.
      Show up on time ... and plan on staying until the scheduled raid time is finished. Don't be bad. Have a good time. Progression raiding isn't for everyone. We are looking for players that are willing to wipe a lot and keep a good attitude. Because of our relatively small raiding schedule, we ask everyone to be prepared for fights and execute with tight technical play so that we can make the most out of the time we do have.
      Raid schedule:
      Monday/Wednesday 11:00 pm - 2:00 am EDT (Server Time)
      We are currently recruiting any of the following.
      Ranged & Melee DPS - (High)
      Healers - (High)
      Tanks - (Medium)
      If your class/role is not listed, and you feel you are an exceptional player and can improve our current roster please feel free to apply.
      Loot System:
      We will be using a Master Loot/Loot Council system to fairly distribute gear to where it is needed once mythic progression begins. Right now we are using Personal Loot.
      How to apply:
      Apply at by starting a new topic as well as get into contact with one of our officers by posting here, adding our battle tags, or talk to us in Discord. (See below)
      If you have any questions, feel free to contact the following officers in game or through
      Nartana-Thrall,   Nartana#1454
      Fustt-Thrall,   Fust#1446

      Hello, everybody! We're Heralds of Strife, a Horde raiding guild on Wyrmrest Accord. We are looking to pick up more players for Emerald Nightmare progression.
      What We're About

      Heralds of Strife is a warm, welcoming community. Our current members range from previous top US 34th raiders to promising newcomers that are hungry to learn and improve. When we are not raiding, we are actively playing many games, from Hearthstone to Overwatch and many others that our guild members have suggested. Heralds of Strife is more than just a raiding guild on World of Warcraft, we are friends who are looking to have fun and get to know each other in our free time. That said, our primary focus will always be to complete the most challenging content that World of Warcraft has to offer during its relevance.

      Current Progression
      2/7 Mythic EN
      7/7 Heroic EN

      Raid Schedule

      Main Raid:
      Saturday - 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM PST
      Monday - 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM PST
      Tuesday- 6:30 PM-9:30 PM PST (Alt raid, normal/heroic, as needed)

      Loot System

      We use a Loot Council with defined parameters. This is broken down into several categories:
      Attendance Performance Attitude Biggest Upgrade Recent Wins
      We publicly record attendance and items received (via RCLootCouncil). Our devoted, down-to-earth leadership has the experience and knowledge needed to ensure upgrades are given to the proper players for progression while maintaining a fair, friendly, and entertaining guild atmosphere.

      Trial Period

      Heralds of Strife is a raiding guild primarily. As such, we do have a trial period for new recruits. With that being said, new raiders will have a 2 week trial period. This trial period begins at the start of the first raid upon joining, and ends on the last raid of the 2nd week.
      The three core principles expected of trials:
      Reliability Positivity Adaptability
      Reliability: We expect our trial raiders to show up for raids, on time, and prepared with the basic necessities to do the raid efficiently. We also expect our trials to have some knowledge on encounters, but we are more than willing to help teach and nurture our raiders. Make a commitment with us and we will do our very best to make sure that you're taken care of. We want to get to know you, as you're not just numbers on our spreadsheet. Here in Heralds of Strife,YOU matter.

      Positivity: We encourage our trial raiders, and our members, in general, to have a positive attitude, ranging from casual conversation to raid progression. There will be nights where progression might seem rough, but, pushing forward with a positive mindset are one of the keys to success. C'mon team, we can do this!

      Adaptability: Our leadership takes the opportunity to analyze our performance logs after each raid night, offering those who are lagging behind some constructive assistance in the long-term goal of improving the player. Our team is only as strong as the player next to us, so we want to work together to overcome any obstacle that may be hindering our performance. Our motto is "iron sharpens iron".



      How To Join
