- Saying “NO” to other guild members that they are not ready for certain raids
- Raid Schedules (again….)
- Preparing and being on time for scheduled raids/events
- Using add-ons the must haves and optional add-ons
- Leveling under 80’s –
- Forming Arena Teams: 2’s 3’s and 5’s
- Guild Bank (again….)
- Recruitment Push
While the focus of the guild is to have casual game time we also want to do end / raid type events as a guild. With such endeavors we need members who DO want to proceed that path to put forth the time and dedication of getting to the point of 10m Naxx, 25m’s etc. The main crux some of us are experiencing is that some peoples eyes are bigger than their stomachs. Meaning, some of you who do show up on time, offer to help with raids simply cannot go as your DPS, Heals or Defense are not up to par. This is nothing personal but there are certain well known requirements on certain raids, if you are not hitting that minimum then you YOURSELF need to get to that point just like everyone else has. It is not as simple as signing up on the raid calendar and showing up, you must have your gear in order, gemmed, enchanted. You also need to bring your potions, bandages and food, we cannot and will not ‘carry’ you. Those who cannot help themselves will not be helped. Again, this applies to those wanting the T7’s and want to do 25 man raids, this does not apply to those who log in once to twice a week.
One of the solutions that seemed to work last year when we were on Kara was to load up 80% geared and experienced players with 20% under geared players and inexperienced. Once that 20% (1-2 players) reached a certain goal/min level gear/stats they would trade out their spot to another 1-3 players also needing to gear up. If and when we have enough players to run 2 groups then we should be good to run most anything with a few pug spots here and there. This will be talked over in the meeting but I would like other peoples opinions on the topic– post here or talk ingame.
