Raiding ilvls in WoD

3 posts in this topic

Hello dear people of Icy-Veins!

 

Does anyone have any suggestions or guidelines for at what itemlevels are healthy for starting normal/heroic raid progression in WoD?

I'd recommend getting full 630 Heroic dungeon gear at least before you start raiding, and maybe try a couple challenge modes for the daily shot at a 640. Once you have a full 630 set with maybe a couple epics thrown in there from garrison/world bosses/boe/etc. you should be fine to start normal raids.

 

Heroic I would say a good item level would be 655ish, but you won't get there in the first week or two unless you get really lucky with normal drops. So if you've cleared normal already and your guild wants to jump into Heroic in the first week or two you'll basically be going with whatever you have.

 

Same thing goes for Mythic, if I were to estimate a "good ilvl" I would say you should be at least 675 for mythic, but if you're jumping into mythic on 12/2 the day it's available you're going to go in with whatever you have. part of the challenge for the first month of raiding is the rng of getting geared up.

      Like A Boss - 7/7H, 3/3H, 9/10H, & 10/10N Recruiting All Players for our raid group and for Mythics+.
       
      About us:
      Like A Boss was founded during WotLK by a small group of real life friends. We are formerly a 10-man Heroic raiding guild that raided throughout WotLK and went on a hiatus mid-Cataclysm. We are a semi-hardcore guild, and are looking for dedicated members who are able to make majority (if not all) of our scheduled raids or any players interested in joining our Mythics+. Our guild is mostly active at night, anywhere from 5pm PST till about 12am PST (varies). We have a casual-ish atmosphere with a serious desire for progression.
       
      What we are looking for:
      We currently have 15 raiders and we are looking to recruit more members to join our flexible raid roster so that we may progress into Mythic raids (requires 20). At this moment, we are open to all players; we are seeking out tanks, healers, and DPS (prefer ranged). We are open to both new and returning players. As mentioned above, we are also seeking players (any class/spec) that may be interested in joining our Mythics+. We run Mythics+ almost every night. While we prefer a geared player, we value a positive attitude over experience. Any players who are interested and active at the times mentioned above, please contact us. We are also open to players interested in a "filler" type role (can make some raid days but not all).
       
      Additional information and scheduled raids:
      Our raids are currently on Tues/Wed/Sun from 6:30pm PST till 8:30pm PST and we use Curse for our raids. RCLoot Council is a required add-on if you plan to raid with us. We typically try out new recruits for at least a week or two to ensure that it is a good fit for both the recruit as well as our guild. We encourage trials to join us in raids, dungeons, our VOIP, and/or even in other games. Raid spots are not guaranteed due to the flexible raid roster.
       
      Contact:
      If you are interested in our guild or want to know more, please message/add Shells-Bloodscalp or Ryozul#1598. For the horde!

      <The Iron Knights> - a laid-back and relaxed bunch of mature people (18+) who like to have a good time while getting things done! 
       
      We are currently looking for people with teamwork attitude to join our main Raid Team. Preparedness is key so you should have enough pots, flasks and food - and knowledge of the fights is a must. If you are short on gold, let an officer know and the guild might be able to help you.
       
      Raiding schedule (Server time):
      Wednesday: 7:50pm - 11:00pm
      Thursday: 7:50pm - 11:00pm
      Sunday: 7:50pm - 11:00pm
       
      The big question..... Loot!
      Personal at the moment. 
       
      Who are we looking for?
      Ranged Dps - High Demand
      Melee Dps - Medium Demand
       
      What do we do outside raiding?
      As everybody, we love Mythic+ dungeons. But many of our members also participate in guild achievement runs. Some like to do some PvP - and we create PvP groups sometimes and have fun killing Hordies together!
       
      Want to join?
      Please contact me via bnet tag at MagdaCrick5#2723
      I am generally online available for a chat around 8-10pm Server Time most days
       
      Or respond to this post with what class and specc you play.

      We are a small community of good friends that have gamed with each other for many years. We want players that will have fun and enjoy the content at a consistent pace with us. With challenge, does come the expectation that players are willing to put the time into obtaining flasks/food/pre-pots relevant to the raid level we are doing that night as well as learning about the mechanics of the fights before raid.  Cauldrons are provided during progression nights.

      After all, we all like purple items with big numbers on it so we can make bigger numbers come out of bigger bosses.

      About Addled:
      Addled is a fairly new guild looking to make progression in mythic raiding. We raid only 2 nights a week. Will never do split raids. We prefer to stay on heroic content on farm until people are ready, then we would start entering mythic. We are really laid back and pride ourselves in a drama free environment. So if you want to get started in mythic raiding and you like the sound of this keep reading.
      Current Progression:
      7/7 Heroic Emerald Nightmare(AotC) 2/3 Heroic Trial of Valor 10/10 Normal The Nighthold (Full clear) Started Heroic The Nighthold(3/10) Raid Times:
      Wednesday 8p-11p server time(est) Thursday 8p-11p server time(est) Expectations:
      Raiders have enough traits in their main spec weapon for current content 30 for normal The Nighthold 35+ for heroic The Nighthold They come prepared with food and flasks 880 at least in bags for normal This allows us to base loot around 2/4pc bonus instead of "it is a X ilvl upgrade" They understand that mechanics is more important then raw dps Discord is our method of communication. Everyone needs it and know the basics of the program(it is really easy) What we need:
      DPS, all shapes and sizes Tank healer(holy pally is preferred) 2 more raid healers(Resto Druid and Resto Shammy) Contact:
