Ok guys

With the few drop outs over the last few weeks, I think it is time to reflect on individual and team goals as per my comments in vent last night. This is of course noting that we will likely be stuck with SoO for a further 6-9 months until WOD release.

Our team currently stands at the following:

Teukad (backup DPS)
Heals*** (Prefer Druid/Priest)
Fuggette (backup tank ? Weizen)
Chupac (backup heals)
Derived (currently works some Thursday nights)
DPS*** (Prefer Lock/Rogue/Paladin/DK)

We are down Physical and Magic vulnerability. Vaughno can only cover one of these hence prefer a Warlock/Rogue/DK/Paladin).

Paladin/Priest/Warlock = 2 toons
Rogue/Mage/DK/Druid = 2 toons
Hunter/Warrior/Shaman/Monk = 4 toons

Given the 45min it took to recruit 2 people (no where near our gear or experience level) last night (even with Open Raid), I do not think pugging is a viable option if our aim is to continue to push heroics. I would like to return to a 11-12 man roster and will try recruit accordingly.

In the mean time, I think we should consider some options. Here are a few ideas and aims off the top of my head. We could choose one or a combination or I am happy to discuss other peoples ideas:

a) Rebuild team and push heroics
b) Add in some normal achievement runs (ie encounter achievements)
c) Farm BoA's from Garrosh normal
d) Older MOP raid achieves
e) Cut raid times to one night a week. With Diablo 3 expansion about to drop, a number of us would prob use the second night and do group runs on D3.

As part of this assessment, we need to consider our aims for WOD. I am open to discussion but currently feel that mythic is not where we should be aiming. My reasoning is based on:
1) Greater logistic requirements for 20 people, made more financially challenging by the definite requirement to move to a Oceanic raid time friendly server
2) Mythic will likely be harder than current heroics. We generally dip our toes into heroics toward the end of tier. I think we can stay occupied with WoD normal and heroic content and suggest that is likely the best place for us for challenge, ability and flexibility. If we find ourselves looking for more challenge once into WoD raids, we can reconsider and adapt on the fly.

I would really like to hear what people would like to do and am happy for people to tell in vent, in game mail or post on the forum.

My suggestion is a combination of the above points a-e. Cut to one night a week, when we have a strong team, push heroic SoO. If we are looking for some variety and have a decent team, do normal SoO with some encounter achievements with an aim to get Garrosh down. If we have a few away, look at some older MOP raids for achives. Have some group D3 nights on our off raid nights.

So what do you guys think?

Grats to us on getting H Imm down. I was worried we couldn't do it. If we do it again I think that fear may leave me.

I want to say that the raid team for the expansion has been the most solid and most enjoyable in a very very long time. The team meshed when it needed too, egos were largely left at the door. We were always going to have to reorganise the team, and thankfully we only need to do so because of change of circumstance and not personality blow outs.

WIth a solid team I think we can keep going on H SoO. But I think without that team we woul dbe back to wipe central (not negative just reality). I will raid anywhere any time with you guys, but the wiping OMG the wiping can be difficult some days.

Fuggs suggestion in the last paragraph of his post sounds good in the short term

And a big round of applause to Fuggs for the team and strats. We progress through his hard work. Something we shoud recognise more frequently by denying him loot.

Sorry for late notice, but I will also be out Monday night.

I had a quick chat to River who is likely not avail either.

Cletus will be late by an hour or so and Vaughno is out as well.

I will leave it to who turns up but suggest calling it off is a good idea.

Pumped for Thursday though, lets get H Immersius and Norushen down quick!
