[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 http://openraid.org/

 

You can see my raid events on OpenRaid in my profile: http://openraid.org/c/132360/381599 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: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/17071166989

 

 

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 battle.net 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 warcraftlogs.com 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.

      Hello!
      Were a newer raiding squad that feels we need some more like minded people for our raid team. I'm filling out my squad for mythic content and am currently looking for ranged DPS and healers especially. Any class is more then welcome to apply and or contact me in game. We like to have fun and enjoy our raids. We have a discord channel like everyone else and just want to push ourselves over the edge. That means I need you. We won't micro manage you or kick you from the guild cause your DPS is 10k short of what is expected at your Ilevel. We understand. It's all about improving. We believe in the whole being greater then the sum of the parts or whatever else non sense sounds enticing. Were a progression team and know heroic well. I'm just tired of pugs when I could have some guildmates instead. We will help you gear and get better. If you like PvP we have people for that as well.
      We raid on Tues and Thurs at 8:30PM to 11:30PM EST. Monday is optional at the same times.
      You can either respond to this message or message me in game. 
      Thank you for your time,
      Xose

      • Recruits Smart - We recruit what we need, and a little extra to ease everyone's minds so they can in fact miss a raid night if they really need to.
      • Consists of older players, most of us are in our late 20s - we even have an old timer in his staggering 40s!
      • Understands that life has it's ups and downs, and that members will in fact miss a raid or two once in a while.
      • Has fun during raids - We focus on progression, but having fun is key to our success and always has been for us in the past. We dig at each other during raids to get a reaction, we sing to each other.. Ever played 'The floor is lava' whilst waiting for a healer to finish pooping? It's very enjoyable.
      • Is able to speak fully coherent English to put points across quickly and effectively - Apart from Rolenta, his English is so broken it hurts your head trying to decipher what he's saying.
      • Will welcome you with open arms and include you in every single inside joke that currently exists and will ever exist as long as you put effort into being a part of us?
      • Has a website URL that reads as Oathkeeper Sad and makes you sad face :(

      Who are we really?
      The core of Oathkeepers have been playing WoW together for going on 5 years now. Sadly we've lost some friends over the time to other games or that dreaded thing called real life, but we've made some new friends too! We're looking to fill out our roster to do more heroic raids - We've had our hurdles to climb to get running again, but we're here now at last!

      We are a friendly bunch that are happy to meet new faces. We have a combinedexperience of all content clears whilst the content was current, and on all difficulties.

      So how do you apply?
      Hit up that link near the top of the thread. In fact, here's another link for you! - oathkeepersad.enjin.com/ - Damn I'm good to you aren't I? Be sure to make an account with Enjin (our host) then hit that apply button! You'll need to fill in a short application form, so we can get an idea of who you are.

      Want to know a bit more about us before committing to hitting that submit application button? Or maybe you just want a chat before making your decision No problemo! Our officers are online a little too much, it's kinda sad. But either way, get in touch with any of the following people!:
      • Neiwaru/Aymana
      • Dalarian/Sylvanart
      • Kukishin (He only has one character of any importance…)

      Hello, everybody! We're Heralds of Strife, a Horde raiding guild on Wyrmrest Accord. We are looking to pick up more players for upcoming Nighthold 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
      4/7 Mythic EN
      3/3 Heroic ToV

      Raid Schedule
      Tuesday 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM PST
      Saturday 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM PST
      Monday 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM PST

      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".
