[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.

      About us:
      Gordian Knot is a 20-man semi-hardcore raiding guild that consists of experienced raiders with some of them having raiding experience as far back as Vanilla.
      We are a friendly group who enjoys World of Warcraft and loves raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We wish for all our members to enjoy the game as much as we do and we expect raiders to maintain a 70-85% attendance per month.
      We also enjoy a variety of other activities such as running a lot of Mythic+ dungeons doing alt-runs, achievement runs etc.
      There are a few things we hold in high value but above else we value friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skillfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.
      Currently :
      We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time.
      Although we are a 20-man guild, we usually run an extra group in order to get more people to experience the joys of raiding, help new raiders learn the Knot's way to down bosses and gearing up. Usually, these runs happen on Thursdays or Fridays.
      Saturdays are left for older content runs for fun and drinking!
      Our current guild progress is 10/10 Nighthold Normal, aiming for a quick HC clear, as most of our members already have 9/10 progress HC and we plan on focusing on Mythic Progress ASAP!
      If you're interested in joining Gordian Knot, please fill in our application form, located at http://gordian-knot.eu/apply/, alternatively please whisper Athlioss@Draenor or add my battletag Athlios#2283.
      PS. We're always open to group applications or guild merging discussions.
      We are also open and welcome social applications.
