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.

      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA**
      Fridays currently for core raiders for partial Heroic or Mythic.
      Sundays reserved for non-mandatory alt runs for a full Heroic clear. (NOT carry runs.)
      If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday (945+) on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
       
                *The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
                **Schedule subject to changes.

      Introduction
      We are a group of friends, who share a love for video games. We were looking for a more organized approach to the game and naturally formed a guild. Now we're mainly looking for people who are curious towards PvE content such as raiding and mythic+. We are very open, friendly and like to joke around with each other. We always have room for more people to have fun with.
      Vision
      We've only recently formed our raiding team, meaning there's still room for improvement. 
      Our goal for legion is to clear Heroic at least before BFA hits. Currently, we've killed 4/11HC. We're still trying to build the main roster where we can rely on our players, instead of having to bring in pugs for every other raid. For the rest of legion, we're looking for healers mainly.
      In BFA we'll be doing our best to gear up as a guild, to enjoy the challenging aspect of the game. Meaning we'll be focusing in clearing PvE content mainly and push as far as we can into mythic raiding content. Realistically we'd like to be clearing HC for every raid-tier. We want to get the right composition to progress with a decent speed.
      As our raid team is quite new, we expect everyone involved to be patient and keep their frustrations off mic or in a whisper to the raid leader and let him deal with problems that may occur.
      Here's a small list of expectations we've got for you as an aspiring raider:
      Good and friendly attitude despite frustration during progression runs. Self-awareness & self-enlightenment. A raider's mentality; dedication and reliability. Focus during the boss encounters. Perform assigned tasks given by the raid leader.  Know your class like the back of your palm. Use tools like Simcraft, Warcraftlogs, and WoWAnalyzer to better yourself. Willingness to put the well-being of the raid team above personal gain (Loot, benching etc.). Good attendance and preparations (Flask/Food/Pots). When we're raiding, we won't hesitate to remove anyone who, repeatedly act toxic. All raiders will be evaluated as we go, based on their performance and attitude in the raiding environment. 
      Raid Information
      Raid Days: Wednesday & Thursday
      Raid Time: 19:00-23:00 CEST / Server time
      Loot System in Legion
      In Legion we're currently using Loot Council as the looting system and will always look for the best way to improve the raid group as a whole, rather than a player. We're a team, and there's no I in team. As Blizzard has stated they're removing ML in BFA which means we'll have to adapt to personal loot once BFA is released. 
      Communication
      We use Discord for all communication and as a guild front, you'll find all the information you need in here. It will contain information about guild-based activities such as raids, social runs, logs etc. If something is missing, feel free to contact one of our officers, and we'll get it fixed asap.
      As a European guild, we're aware that people with different languages will be present. Therefore we've decided to require every member to speak basic English and keep all public chatter be in guild chat or discord in English as well.
      Anything else?
      We've got a friendly environment, open to get new players to join our guild and get some more progression going. We've got a single rule due to earlier experiences, which is an age restriction on 18+. We also play other games, so if you hit it off with some of us, why not venture outside WoW and grow the relationship.

      Contact us!
      You can catch us on following Battle.net account or characters.
