5/10M Sanctum of Domination
7/10M Castle Nathria
Who are we:
Hello and welcome to the Breakfast Raiders!
As our name suggests it, we are a morning raiding guild, founded prior to Shadowlands launch on Alliance side. We are reforming now on the Horde side seeking better odds, filling in our raiders’ spots.
Our core team reached 7/10M in CN and 5/10M in SoD, with a couple of our members achieving CE in previous tiers.
We are mature players (18+ and well above), with some of us being so mature that we decided to have kids of our own, but childish enough to take the time and have fun together in WoW, still dedicated and determined in mythic raiding content and aiming towards CE.
We welcome players with similar background but not only, as long as we share the same goal: spending quality time together.
We are a multicultural team, from all around Europe and Middle-East and we value and respect our diversity.
There is a place for everybody in our guild, be it social member or dedicated raider. Mature, yet relaxed attitude is highly appreciated.
A team of passionate raiders that work together towards a common goal. A home where we are playing together both in and outside raids. Raid leading team that have accomplished Cutting Edge before. Flat guild structure, we want people to take responsibility and talk in the open.
English speaking, with microphone and willing to use it. High attendance. Strive to be as good as you can, and help others achieve it. Able to take constructive criticism. Be prepared on tactics, requirements and personal consumables. Schedule (server time):
Thursday 09:30 - 12:30
Friday 09:30 - 12:30
Optional non-mythic raid on Tuesday’s, same time for as long as HC farm is considered relevant at the beginning of a tier. (Not mandatory)
We will often take 5-10 min breaks one or twice during the raid.
We use loot council addon to help with distribution to those where the items does the most for progression. We believe in team play, and we are all pushing for progression.
What we are looking for our Raid Team:
Dedicated raiders, who want to progress even when it gets hard!
Multi-spec is a bonus not a requirement.
If you are interested to start on our journey towards CE in the future updates, or if you just want a home with people that are online in the early mornings then please contact our Raid Leader Max for info.

I'm Caperfin. Got questions? see my Shaman Tank Livestream: www.twitch.tv/caperfin Introduction
Can Shamans tank in WoW? The short and to the point answer is, yes. You might be rubbing your eyes in disbelief of this answer. Perhaps conjuring a ten page manifesto about how only warriors can and should tank. Although, I can go on a long rant about how there are many other classes that can tank, today, I’ll be focusing on our totemic friend, the shaman.
The topic of viable and optimal is contentious as some don’t see the difference or mix them up and levy a misguided philosophy onto it. Optimal is the most efficient and foolproof solution that eliminates as many negative variables as possible and favors an easier path. Viable or often referred to as: possible, seen as the more challenging path but to many is a greater personal triumph. Shaman Tank is labelled as viable.
Many Shaman tanks agree their motivation is from the glory of seizing a feat the rest of the realm dares not try. If this resonates with you, please continue reading. You shaman tank if you want a challenge and a refreshing perspective from a 15 year old game. If it wasn’t obvious before, shield bearing is a sizable undertaking.
When experienced players Shaman tank and put in the effort, it shines tenfold. Shamans can fully tank 5mans, 10mans, off-tank & main-tank raids. But, this is reliant on personal and guild experience. Our overall defensive statistics won’t reach a warrior’s. However, it isn’t necessary to do so, to tank.
Video: Shaman Tank Race Options - Video Explanation
You’ll be staring at your character for a long time. So, consider your character’s appearance as a key factor as it may entice you to play more. All races have benefits but they’re minor compared to other aspects. There is no wrong race. See Video to learn more about race options.
Video: Shaman Tank - Professions - Youtube
Engineering for: Goblin Sapper Charge, Masterwork Target Dummy, Force Reactive Disk, etc... As a secondary profession, go a high gold generating profession on your realm. Gold helps buy potions, ex: Flask of the Titans among other consumables.
Video: Shaman Tank - How to deal threat - World of Warcraft - YouTube
We can increase threat in many ways, notably: Earth Shock, Stormstrike, Rockbiter Weapon & Lightning Shield. Install a threat tracking addon, ex: ThreatClassic2. Consumable items deal threat, ex: Major Rejuvenation Potion based on half of the Health & Mana gained. Damage items, ex: Goblin Sapper Charge deals threat equal to the damage so do reflective Buffs, ex: Thorns. Lastly, certain items ex: Gift of Arthas deal threat each time their Debuff is triggered (see Threat List).
Allies can reduce their threat, through items, ex: Fetish of the Sand Reaver. Mage have: Burning Soul. Shaman: Tranquil Air Totem. Rogue and Hunter wipe threat with Vanish & Feign Death and so can Flask of Petrification. Items prevent aggro: Limited Invulnerability Potion & redirect aggro Masterwork Target Dummy (taunts the mob). Classes in the 30-40 yard range won’t get aggro t'ill they surpass the threat level of the mob’s current target by 30%, as opposed to 10% for melee classes. (See More)
Video: Shaman Tank - Totems - Youtube
Totems can't deal threat for you. Common totems: Grace of Air Totem, Stoneskin Totem & Healing Stream Totem. AoE Tanking: Stoneclaw Totem followed by Fire Nova Totem. To learn more about totems, watch the Video.
Video: Shaman Tank - Talents - Video Explanation
The talent setup: (16/35/0) has steady threat per second for raids & excels on short fights.
PrePull: Cast Lightning Shield. Get all Buffs the group can supply. Cast Rockbiter Weapon. Place: Stoneskin Totem, Grace of Air Totem & Healing Stream Totem. Mark the mobs in front of you by right-clicking their portrait, pick Raid Target Icon, choose from either a Skull = kill first, a red X = kill second, a blue square = Hunter trap and a moon = Polymorph. Pulling: Cast Lightning Bolt, followed by as many Lightning Bolt possible to trigger, Elemental Focus. Lastly, Earth Shock. Combat: For raids, use Nat Pagle's Broken Reel to assure the first few Earth Shocks hit. In a fight, use relevant ranks of Earth Shock that suits your mana & threat. Stormstrike can’t be downranked but is also used in similar cases. If Lightning Shield expires, cast it. If you suddenly might die, equip a defensive weapon, ex: Spineshatter w/ Enchant Weapon - Agility & Rockbiter Weapon, use Masterwork Target Dummy (taunts boss), use Juju Escape, possibly Major Healthstone & Major Rejuvenation Potion. To learn more, see the Video.
Video: Shaman Tank - Tank Buffs - Youtube
There's a max of 32 Buffs, avoid nearing the max as it may result in Buffs getting mistakenly removed, the addon: Buff Cap Tracker helps. Use Buff Cap Calc to see what Buffs stack. Prioritize getting defensive Buffs, ex: Elixir of Fortitude before Threat Buffs, ex: Juju Might. (here's a detailed List of Buffs). Video: Shaman Tank - Best Debuffs
A max of 16 Debuffs can be on a mob. Reaching the max is major in raids. There's defensive Debuffs: Insect Swarm & threat Debuffs: Faerie Fire among others. With the raid leader’s consent, suggest ideal Debuffs without overstepping. We can apply Gift of Arthas & Stormstrike. To learn more, see the Video.
Video: Shaman Tank - How to gear!? - Youtube
Solidify defensive stats when gearing, threat is secondary. It’s advised to have 4k HP & 5k Armor unbuffed for Molten Core. Blackwing Lair, ~4800 to 5k HP and 6500-7k Armor. For reliable threat, 3% melee Hit is advised for dungeons. For Raid tanking, 6% Melee Hit. See the BiS Gear Set. You can't equip gear in combat, except for a weapon & shield, enabling the equipping of a defensive weapon, ex: Spineshatter, if survival seems grim. To learn more, see the Video.
There are two types of enchants, defensive, ex: Enchant Gloves - Superior Agility. And offensive, ex: Enchant Gloves - Threat. See a list of relevant Tank Enchants.
Video: Shaman Tank - How to deal AoE Threat? - Youtube
Many actions can further solidify AoE cases, ex: Oil of Immolation, Force Reactive Disk, Thorns, etc... (see a detailed Threat List) It’s crucial to switch and attack another target ever so often. In combat, items & spells giving health or mana deal 50% threat divided by each mob. Items also help until a decent amount of threat is gained on all mobs, ex: Masterwork Target Dummy.
Video: Shaman Tank - Raid Composition
With the raid leader’s consent, offer an ideal raid comp without overstepping. In our group, Warlock: Blood Pact, Warrior: Battle Shout, Druid: Leader of the Pack, Hunter: Trueshot Aura. For damage dealing classes, we prefer ranged classes over melee. If melee are needed, rogues are best. Groups with high threat dealers can have a Shaman: Tranquil Air Totem.

Are you looking to join the best PvE guild to push content with? A guild with the most competent hardcore raiders, pushing to be the fastest to down bosses? Well, we are not that guild… Sometimes you want something more from a guild than pushing content, regimental raids and being disposable based on your meta or dps.
We’ve seen it happen: An expansion comes out, and you’re excited about the new great new guild you’ve found. Then a few months later the content goes stale and the guild disperses along with all the new friends you made along the way. But, it really doesn’t have to be that way!
Meloria is a [H] guild on Defias Brotherhood, which is also linked with Ravenholdt, Scarshield Legion, Sporeggar, The Venture Co realms, The Darkmoon Faire and Earthen Ring. It’s also a long-term gaming home, and if you’re a certain type of person, it’s the only one you’ll ever need.
The back of the box says we are a group of adults of all genders ranging from 30s to 50s (with exceptions on either side). We’re mostly from Ireland/UK/Europe all with lives, kids etc. Of course we care more about your personality than your character’s iLevel and of course we’re not interested in massive egos, drama queens or toxicity. We joke, have the banter, swear, go off-colour, help each other, slate each other and carry on like any functional group of adults who enjoy each other’s company.
We’re exactly as serious as we need to be to enjoy harder content while not ruining anyone’s lives. We’re going to enjoy pushing the next patch hard, but we don’t do mandatory fun. If you’re burnt out, losing interest, or feeling we’re moving too quickly or too slowly, we’re okay with that too. We won’t abandon you if you want to switch gears or level alts or do something else altogether. If you want to run with another guild for a while we won’t throw you out, and if you just want to play some other game we’ll probably end up playing it with you.
So if you’re wondering why you can’t find that decent group of chilled adults to have a bit of banter and fun with, it’s because you haven’t talked to us yet! Fortunately, there’s an easy fix, reach out and get in contact with us:
