Raid Teams, Yes Plural… Teams

wow-legion-logoFor Legion, we have decided to not only continue onward and push through content with our main weekday raid team, Team Olympians… we are also going to be creating a new raid team that raids on weekends for those of us that either a) have busy work weeks or b) have alts they want to level up.  Dubbed Team Demi Gods, this raid team will run Saturdays and Sundays from 9 PM to 12 AM EST.

Rounding out our new raid team’s leadership will be Charsbarkley as Raiding Officer and Klavin as Raid Leader.  The two of them will work closely together to lead us through successful content progression. Charsbarkley will work on the roster composition, recording attendance, and working with recruitment officers to fill necessary raiding spots. Klavin will focus entirely on strategic boss progression and getting our raiders through content.  If any folks would like to join our new raid team on the weekends, please see Charsbarkley or Klavin to get on the roster’s list of try outs.

For Team Olympians, we are shifting focus from moderate raiding to semi-hardcore raiding. In doing so, there are some spots that have become or will through the course of selection become free for other raiders to apply to as some of our raiders would move to be bench players rather than roster players due to personal time constraints.  This includes myself.  The requirements to join either raid group have gone up to be 840 ilvl and an unlocked 3rd artifact relic slot. This does require members to continuously be working on their main raiding characters, even on off days.  For many of us, that’s an impossibility.  But this will allow us to push for top ranks on our server.  You’ll want to message Vitalizer or Tankymcbones to compete for a spot.

A roster spreadsheet can be found here for all to review.


Full Clear Wednesday!

We’d like to congratulate our Team Olympian raiders for a great job in clearing ALL of Heroic HFC in 2.75 hours — from start to finish.  They earned themselves a day off on Thursday night and it was also our last night of raiding in WoD. Onward and upwards to Legion Raiding!  We will NOT be raiding until September 30th as we’re giving our members a month to level and be Raid Ready!  Here is a picture of all of us. 😉  Go #TeamTLP!

Four Bosses Down in HFC, First Night In

Congratulations TLP! You guys rock. 🙂

On our first night in, for some the first time raiding content in WoW ever and for others the first time in 8 years (me included!), we managed to one-shot two bosses, two-shot the last two.  In order we downed Hellfire Assault, Iron Reaver, Kormrok, and the Hellfire Council.  The sixth boss is rather complex but I think we’ll make progress with it tonight. We did spent a good hour on it last night so I think we’ll get through it tonight.

I think after a second go (next week) in Normal, we can bump it up to Heroic depending on how much gear we farm up out of these instances.  I do know a lot of us are busier in real life than some and are not able to get into the LFRs as much or get into PvP to grind out some PvP gear to put us in the DPS checks for Heroic.  We’ll need folks closer to 700 to try Heroic, but what we could do is farm the first few bosses in Heroic, while still trying to learn the fights from Normal.  We’ll explore that possibility!

I want to specially thank Mortalsins, Danmachi, and Odie for helping to explain the fights for most of these as I was really too green to do the job all alone (Gawd I hate Raid Leading!). Everyone really did so well and I was so happy to have us go in there and synergize the way we did.  Everyone got along great and nothing major stood in our way.  What an amazing night for us as a guild! 🙂

I’ll be getting more screenshots of our guild in action tonight, and see if there are any more screenshots to add but these two are my personal best shots.  Enjoy!
