Tomorrow the Uldir raid opens, and we will be resuming raiding at our normal times (7-10pm CST). Please make sure you show up with all required add-ons (ExRT, WeakAuras 2, and RCLootCouncil) installed. Drekkar will be dropping feasts, but for the time being all other consumables will be on you as they are too expensive to provide for the guild at this time. We will be starting with clearing Normal and will then move on to Heroic. All subs and trials should plan on attending as we can bring up to 30 people to normal and heroic. We will continuing to evaluate performance these first few weeks, and within the next month we anticipate doing another round of Engagement Meetings with raiders as necessary. I think I speak for everyone when I say we'd like things to go differently this expansion in regards to: - Raids starting on time - Attendance of raiders - Downtime during raids - Overall performance of the raiders - Positive attitudes - Willingness to participate in guild activities (mount runs, achievement runs) - Willingness to share loot and do what's best for the raid group - Compliance with raid leader and officers - More leadership - Proactive recruitment so we have a consistent 20 All of these factors will be taken into account when we move into mythic and we select 20 members to be on the core raid team so we can all have a better experience. We are bringing in a number of trials, and we will have a heroic raid group of 25-30 people, meaning it will be a competitive environment and not everyone is guaranteed a core spot come mythic. We will also be doing our best to keep our raid composition competitive, which means people of the same class may be expected to fight over spots. Anyone who doesn't make the core the first go around is welcome to stay as a sub and will very likely have a chance to earn their core spot as the expansion goes on and any current core slack off. The leadership team is committed to making sure we rotate subs into the raid group especially on non-progression so they can continue to gear and prove themselves, and potentially earn their own core spot if they outshine existing people. There will be no more hand-holding, everyone is expected to pull their weight and as soon as you stop doing that, someone else may get the chance to take your spot from you. Good luck, and see you all in the raid!
