The new raid Nighthold is now in game and we are back into the full swing of things with all of our raiders finally home from vacations. We are down a few good men (yes men, the lady didn't drop) due to the dreaded burn out, but we are also welcoming many new faces for try outs as well. I think we have a good group going thus far this expansion and I for one am much happier with one raid team rather than the three teams we normally house. We have more unity and well, less of the competative bullshit that breeds from multiple teams.
Our first week in Nighthold went well. Our team cleared normal with very little trouble and this week they've downed three heroic bosses. Not bad for being semi casual and only raiding two nights a week imo. The idea of toying with a few Emerald Nightmare mythic bosses has came up serveral times. I think our team would be fine doing that, but we would need 5+ more raiders to fill in the gap, including a few willing to sit out if we had excess. I guess we will see where that idea goes, but for now I think we're happy with our progress.
We have cut the Farming Hour down to every three weeks so try to show up fuckers, we also may be swapping to cauldrons soon rather than flasks.
Current dps minimum is 300k, ideal ilvl would be around 870, but you can try out with less. Try outs are Wednesday @ 9pm EST. We are low on plate dps but anyone is welcome to try out as long as your spec / class can mesh in and you meet requirements. If you do not make it you can always work on things and try again. If you are interested let Kaly, Naz, Em or an officer know.
TL;DR? Nice job asshats, keep it up.
