SUNDAY raid 1/16/11 7pm start Bastion of Twilight
Tanks: Lawkjaw, Bhumpy
Heals: Zeered, Grindars, Belias,
DPS: Zerokfe, Ranakin, Alydrra, Finial, Abanna,

Alts: Eppyrose- heals, Anriis, Max, Wal

(We need more heals and tanks. If we have that, we can do 2 runs. Please think about posting for raids.)

**** Note**** This is progression raiding. It is expected for you to be as geared as you can be. Flasks, food, gems and enchants are required. If you can't do bother to do the above, well, I probably don't have the time to schedule you then. Things are cutting edge with our gear levels and we need all the extras we can right now. We are not on farm status.
EPGP will be awarded for this weeks raids. Please bear with us as we tweak the epgp to make sure it works for our guild.
(EPGP rules will be posted).

EPGP rules:

EPGP Items: Weapons/Trinkets/Tier gear
Awards: 25 pts for showing up 5 mins before scheduled raid ready to go. 50 points for each hour of scheduled run time. (7-10pm = 150 pts)
Costs: items will cost the suggested amount by epgp mod, 1/2 suggested amount for offset.
Base gp: everyone is set to 200 base gp for math reasons.
Non epgp items: Open roll main toon main set> main toon offset> alt main set>alt offset. 1 item per run, unless it is going to be sharded.

This is a test of the modified epgp system, please let's see how it works.

**** Additional info**** Raid progression is different things for different people. I want people to realize we want to have fun during this time, but also need to harness that fun a bit also. Please keep vent clear during the boss fights, let the raid leaders call the shots. The raid leaders will control the raid itself for that night and will have their own rules. Strategy will be solicited during appropriate times. They may delegate to the tanks the ability to call out swaps, or ask for things like heroism and other important things that will lead to our success. So let's follow the guidelines set by that nights raid leader and down some bosses for the purple loots.

I believe I am unable to do Sunday, I can post later 100 percent. Monday is a Holiday so I think we are hitting up Showtunes at the gay bar. Be Jealous! :)

Cheeto1016: Stereotyping as hard as he can.

Sorry about the connection issues last night, guys. I did a bit of digging and foun that there are quite a few folks on Time Warner having the same issue- when I zoned in or out of the instance, I would hang with a full loading bar at random intervals, and had to Alt+F4 to close and log back in. To make matters worse, when I did finally get in, everything usually looked normal until the pull, when I would immediately lag and DC.

I've had these issues in heroics but never to the degree I had last night, and I rarely actually lagged once I did zone into the instance. There are a few things I'm going to try based on recommendations on the WoW boards, fingers crossed. I've never been so frustrated playing WoW, and I'm sure some of you were just as frustrated with me, and I apologize for trying to stick it out as long as I did.

Iso. No worries. Hope the connection issues clear up. I know your pain and how frustrating a bad connection can be.

Rantin.
Heals.

Any night that isn't I have at least a day's warning should be fine.
And I spent this weekend catching herbalism up, so I won't be broke by next week due to flask buying.

UPDATE: I have training after work on Thursday (which is a terrible idea as I'll probably fall asleep during it) and board games on Sunday.

Bumped for edits

Doesn't look like it will matter since there doesn't seem to be anything planned for this evening, but I just realized I had forgotten about my plans for this evening when I posted my availability. Suffice to say, I'll not be logging in tonight.

A little late, but if you need people for Thursday anytime.

*Edit* I will be missing Sunday, I will be drunk and singing extremely loudly instead!

If a few folks are willing and able for Thursday I'd like to stress test my connection fix with a few heroics, at least.

That makes Tanks jobs look super easy

Blue square = Freezing Trap! It's blue, like ice! That was pretty much the case through BC on Blackhand so it's ingrained in my head.

Same. I can't even begin to imagine how anyone thought to use anything but the blue square for freezing trap. It just makes good sense.

Walanadorl pally tank can raid on Sunday anytime.
