Holiday Schedule

Postby Ashijin » Mon Dec 21, 2015 7:02 pm

Due to Christmas Eve, we will not be raiding on Thursday 12/24 this week. Tuesday and Wednesday raids will happen as normal. We will continue assessing the viability of next Thursday's raid on New Years Eve throughout the week before making a decision.

Have a very Merry Orc-filled Christmas, and get those Garrisons decorated!


A New Tank Approaches

Postby Ashijin » Sat Dec 12, 2015 9:05 pm

Smoke rises from the Reclamations Papal conclave, signalling the election of a new tank

With the untimely demise of Holyspec, who was brutally dismembered by Tyrant Velhari as everyone looked on in disbelief, Cuigy has been promoted to OT. Drekkar will take his melee DPS spot in the core roster. Congratulations you two! Now Cuigy's random pulls will make a little more sense.

We are currently looking for another core healer (either holy priest or mistweaver monk), and maybe a Boomkin, as Boomzilla has been MIA since global warming submerged Hawaii.

Weekly EP Bonus Events!

Postby Ashijin » Tue Nov 17, 2015 2:28 am

For the next month (at least) we will be running a series of EP bonus events centered on the Valor gear upgrades. Raiders who put in the effort each week to earn valor and upgrade their gear (to benefit the raid!) will earn bonus 300 EP (yes, I said 300) at the end of the week.

To qualify, you must earn at least 1000 Valor for the week and apply 4 upgrades to your raiding gear. Once you have upgraded your gear, all you have to do is whisper Ashijin or Nellabel and link the items you have upgraded as proof (and get confirmation). These items will be recorded, and you cannot use the same upgrades to quality in later weeks. Bonus EP will be applied the Tuesday following the weekly event, and you have until that point to submit your proof.

If you do not submit any upgrades for consideration, we will also check people's armories on Monday night, but will make no guarantees we won't miss something, so make sure you get those submitted!

That's it! Get out there and get your gear upgraded! [...]

Loot Changes

Postby Ashijin » Mon Nov 16, 2015 10:10 pm

Starting this week, we are making some tweaks to how our custom EPGP system works in order to close up some loop-hole shenanigans as well as to make things a bit more fair overall.

None of you like to read though, so right to the changes!

* Contested items where all parties would benefit from <= 6 ilvls, the item is half cost.
* If an item is a >6 ilvl upgrade for someone, and a <=6 ilvl upgrade for you, you are not eligible for the item unless you can make a convincing case to the loot council (i.e. upgrading from an ultra-poorly itemized piece to a perfectly itemized piece), but you will pay full GP for it..
* Gems (and Warforged of course) are now worth 6 item levels towards the Upgrade Bonus.
* If people are upgrading from the exact same piece and are only gaining a gem slot, the item will cost 80 GP.
* Loot links must now be linked to officer chat using /o (you will not see the message, don't worry)
* If you link for offspec you must specify offspec in the same message [...]

Weekly Bonus EP, post your fursona!

Postby Kaustos » Wed Mar 18, 2015 3:18 am

In light of Zephzero coming out as a furry, I have encouraged the raid team to create and share their own fursonas. Doing so will get you a little bit of bonus EP (+100). Not doing so makes you boring and drab. Even if you're not part of the raid, feel free to participate Image


Raid Scheduling

Postby Ashijin » Wed Feb 11, 2015 5:12 am

Core raiders and those interested in becoming a part of the main raid, please respond to this thread with the times you are able to raid each week so we can figure out a more concrete schedule that will work for everyone.

If you do not reply to this thread it will be assumed you can make ANY raid times.

Thanks you!

Siege of Orgrimmar Preparations

Postby Ashijin » Tue Sep 03, 2013 1:28 pm

It's 1 week until Siege comes out! I hope you're all enjoying your break from raiding.

There are a few last-minute preparations I'd like everyone to make before Siege hits that will help things go smoothly.

[html]<strong><u><span style="color:#FFF;">TLDR at bottom; read the bolded and underlined shit.</span></u></strong>[/html]

Firstly, hopefully most of you recall the talk we all had a month or two ago about expanding our roster to 11-13 players, one extra potentially of each role, so people being late or not being able to raid certain days wouldn't be an issue. To help with this, [html]<strong><u><span style="color:#FFF;">I'd like everyone to keep an up-to-date list of bosses they need gear from.</span></u></strong>[/html] I should be able to ask who can swap on certain fights and get an immediate response.
