This first week of raiding has been very mixed. We had great success in normal mode on Wednesday and Thursday but had to cancel the extra raid on Sunday where we hoped for heroic progression because we had only 1 tank. This early in the expansion that is a massive failing, especially when it was caused by one of our raid rules and for a guild that has always taken pride in primary goal which is:
Our aims are to achieve the perfect balance between defeating end-game raid content and dominating PvP whilst still making room for real life.
This week our insistence on Legion enchants and consumables didn’t match that goal. 30,000 gold for a neck enchant, 1500 gold for EACH potion and flask really is too much to ask, especially for people that didn’t milk the garrisons for the last 12 months of Warlords. The new profession system also means that levelling a profession on an alt to assist is painful too.
Therefore, we have decided that for now we will ease those rules. Until AH prices settle down what we expect of all Core Raider and Raider Trial ranks is:
- Legion enchants on rings and cloaks;
- Legion gems;
- Legion flasks;
- Legion mana potions;
- Legion Health potions;
- Warlords enchants on necks;
- Warlords DPS potions (pre-pull and in-combat);
We will review this weekly and once things are better, we will expect Legion enchants and consumables all round. If you wish to discuss this decision please visit: http://forum.exhumed.eu/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2703&p=2815#p2815
