Getting my group "Raid Ready"

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Currently I am the raid leader of a casual group. We are mostly real life friends that come together to go through new content. I am wondering if anyone knows of any raid prepare guides out there. I realize it is still pretty early, but I seem to remember more complete "101" type guides out there for Cataclysm. I have been a long time fan of Icy Veins and your guides are fantastic, so I figured here would be a good place to ask.

Things I am wondering:

  • Optimal feast / food buffs (what materials should I be collecting)
  • Item averages (I know it is early, but what should I be asking people to work towards?)
  • DPS / HPS averages (Once again, I know the top progression guilds usually establish this and we all work off of that, but are there any plans for one somewhere?)

Thanks for the help!

This is all very useful thanks!

I also noticed after my post yesterday that Icy Veins has a "Gearing Up & Best in Slot" section for each specific class that I never noticed (probably because I was so busy pouring over rotations). It's not condensed information but if you send your guildmates to their proper spec it does have everything you need.

      **Raid Times:** Tues, We'd, Thurs 9pm ET - 12am ET
      **Goals:** Clear all end game content in and rock in World PvP. We understand that we don't have the same time availability that we did 14 years ago when Vanilla launched, so progression may be slower than other Guilds with more free time. That doesn't mean we cannot strive to be one of the top guilds on our server, clearing all raid content in a respectable time frame. As for World PvP, if it's red, it's dead!
      **About us:** We are a large org with ~ 2,000 members in our Discord. We play various games, some more competitively than others. We've been around for roughly a year as an org. We also operate as a gaming league, hosting competitive seasonal game play and tournament play with cash prizes and sponsors for CSGO, Apex, and Overwatch.
      **WoW Classic:** We will be building a division that is as successful as our other successful divisions. Our WoW Classic division will form a large family, just like Vanilla, where everyone works together for the common good, and everyone knows everyone. No more dungeon and raid finder *filtered*! We're building a community.
      We have a large infrastructure that already exists from bots, to servers, to websites, a large streaming and social media presence, a podcast, to active and helpful staff.
      **Needs:** We need raiders that have experience in Vanilla raiding either via many years ago or via current private servers. That said, if you aren't familiar, but you're willing to read, listen, and learn, we still want you. We need Holy Priests the most, followed by Resto Druids and Resto Shaman,then Rogues. Full on Warriors and Mages.
      **Loot System:** Nevermore will be using a loot council system where officers award loot to members based on attendance, size of upgrade, performance inside and outside of a raid, and an overall benefit to the progression of the guild.
      Hit me up if you have questions.

We enjoy helping people out, chillin' on Discord and have some peeps that like to get their Mythic+ and PvP on. We are working on building out our 20 man roster and hope this sounds like a guild you can come and have fun with! As a guild we use Discord.

      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 80% 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. Also, every Friday and sometimes Saturdays too, we're on RBGs killing alliance scums!
      Saturdays are generally left for those RBGs or older content runs for fun and drinking!
      Our current guild progress is 6/9 in Battle of Dazar'alor mythic, and we're focusing on getting further Mythic progress. Our aim is to always progress as much as possible but also to have a relaxed and fun atmosphere at the same time!
