So my guild has had a 10 man “progression” raid team for about 3 months now. Honestly I do not see progression coming with only 1 1/2 night per week of raiding. Progression has Stopped to the point where the same bosses or less are downed each week.
The one thing I am completely at as loss about is how the raid team is determined. Myself and a few others maintain “Reserve” spots pretty much every week. In fact both my top toons are set to reserve. My Hunter and My Resto Druid. My hunter is in the top 3 of dps on the raids I have been to and my druid can hold its own at healing. So both my main toon are essentially waiting to see if I will be needed that week and I cannot raid otherwise.
Take this week for example; I am still on standby while 1 Healer has a guaranteed spot but hasn’t attended a raid in almost 2 months and signed up as a maybe. another healer is also a maybe. No DPS spot is open because a melee dps who joined last week and is lesser geared has a spot.
I have always through my career as a raid leader (before Mists of Pandaria) have always taken the most reliable people who can do the job, running with the same people every week is good for the teamwork aspect. Apparently there is a rule that you cannot have 2 of any class/spec in the raid. No 2 hunters no 2 restro druids etc.
I have sent the GM a message asking for some clarification and have not received an answer yet. The logic being used here is going to give me a brain aneurism
I transfered Guild Master back to the former GM and have left Dragon Raiders Xtreme. I am now a Member of The Wayward Saints of Eitrigg. The Stress and constant complaining by Guild Members took too much of a toll on me along with the fact that when I was Guild Master I felt obligated to log in for hours every day even though I was sick and tired of spending 6 hours a day on WoW.
As a regular member of The Wayward Saints I can log in to participate in guild activities and Play the game if I feel the motivation. Now I can play other games when I choose to without feeling guilty.
The Saints is a Laid Back Very casual raiding guild. We raid 1-2 Nights per week and have had a little success in Siege of Orgrimmar Personally I think raiding for progression should be about 3 nights per week.
I am happy now where I at and have no plans to change again.
I have decided to come back to the Blogging World. I took a year off because I didn’t know where I wanted this blog to go. I have decided to make this a Gaming Blog that is focesed on World Of Warcraft and will cover other games as the urge hits me. I have been active most of the Panda Expansion.
