Raid Information

About the Raid

Our main goal in the core raid is to clear each raid on Mythic difficulty and earn everyone who helped with progression their Cutting Edge achievement and final boss rewards. This means finishing progression with enough time left in the tier to farm the rewards out for everyone.

We do not have a specific World, US or Realm rank goal. Setting one in a semi-hardcore guild would put additional strain on progression, and downplay our success if we finish a tier ranked lower than the previous tier. We will always strive to clear the content as fast as possible with the players we have available.

We will always complete the [Glory of the …] meta achievement for the current tier for those that are interested. This usually occurs after Cutting Edge is achieved.

Raid Rules

  • Players are swapped in/out based on loot needs during farm content.
  • Players are invited based on performance during progression.
  • Consumables provided by the bank!
  • Come to raid prepared and show up on time.
    • Invites begin 15 minutes before raid starts.
  • Attendance is taken for core raid nights.
    • Showing up on time gives full credit, even when sitting out.
    • Logging in after the hour gives half-credit (even by 1 minute!).
  • Final boss rewards (i.e. mounts) are handed out based on attendance.
    • Mounts that drop in pairs are split 1 officer 1 raider until each officer has a mount.

Raid Schedule

  • TUE - Mount sales and normal/heroic farm for core. Attendance optional but encouraged.
  • WED - Mythic farm/progression.
  • THU - Mythic farm/progression.
  • SAT - Alt raid (normal or heroic).
  • SUN - Mythic farm/progression.

All raids are 3 hours, 9pm to 12am server time (central).

Required Addons

  • BigWigs - You are strongly encouraged to use BigWigs over DBM. When the entire raid uses the same boss mod, it makes the lifes of the officers easier. We do not need to worry about compatibility issues, and we do not have to explain how to change boss-specific settings twice.
  • Method Raid Tools - We use MRT notes for our boss assignments (many of which drive WeakAura configurations).
  • WeakAuras - Mythic raiding requires a lot of weakauras. We wish it didn't but it does.
  • RCLootCouncil - We use this addon to distribute loot.

Required WeakAuras

  • TMDM Encounter Client - A generic aura that we occassionally use to create custom boss notifications and assignments.

Loot Rules

The RCLootCouncil addon is mandatory and will be used to determine who needs what item and their level of need. Everyone will be able to see what people have put for their response. If you do not have the addon you will not be considered for loot. The loot master will take level of need, progression impacts and rolls into account when deciding loot recipients.

  • Do message the loot master if you have questions about how a decision was made.
  • Do not message the loot master to bitch about how you didn't get loot. They are not your parents.
  • Do not lie about the value of an item. The officers always find out.

Bind-on-equip items are handled different based on whether they dropped from trash or a boss.

  • Boss-drop BoE items may be sold if their current sell value far exceeds their immediate usage value to the raid.
  • Trash-drop BoE items are kept by whoever looted them! Go sell that shit!

Special Cases

  • Trial members are 2nd lowest priority for loot.
    Nothing against trials but they do tend to leave and core raiders deserve priority for progging the tier.
  • Alts are the lowest priority for loot.
    Alts may have their priority raised in special cases where we need them for progression.

Trial Period

The trial period typically lasts for three weeks after Mythic raiding has begun. Trials are extended at the beginning of a tier before we get into Mythic. We are looking for players with a balance of ability, attendance and attitude. Doing poorly in any category is enough to fail your trial with us.
