Tomb Of Sargeras Incoming

The Tomb of Sargeras raid is finally here. Read our raid guide on the forum @ http://forum.exhumed.eu/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=6487&p=6669

RECRUITMENT: Tank required

We are looking for a tank to join our heroic raid team. This is a main tank role not an off-spec backup role. Our expectation is that you are raid ready and have experience of main tanking in heroic raids and can attend both raids at least 2 out of every 3 weeks. As a main tank you will need  to be confident and able to think on your feet when things go wrong. You will also be expected to be vocal on teamspeak.

Temporary Easing of Raid Rules

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

Raid Ready?

 

What we mean by raid ready for Legion is:

Your toon:
  • 840+ ilevel;
  • Legion enchants on your neck, rings and cloak (lesser enchants for the first few weeks is fine as mats are hard to get);
  • Flasks for 3 hours;
  • Potions (I recommend at least 40 per night);
  • 300 food (rising to 375 soon™) for many wipes (I recommend at least 20 per night);
  • Gold for repairs (prepare for 1500 to 2000 gold per night);
You:
  • Read and watched strats (see here);
  • Logged onto TS (download/access info);
  • Distraction free environment;
  • Follow instructions of raid officers;

Anyone not meeting these standards will be asked to sit out on our raids.

 

Weekly Events

 

After reviewing the feedback, our Legion weekly schedule will remain unchanged. Therefore our raid and PvP nights will be:

  • Tuesday at 2100 to midnight (server time): Casual Rated Battle Grounds
  • Wednesday at 2100 to midnight (server time): Core Raid (Day 1)
  • Thursday at 2100 to midnight (server time): Core Raid (Day 2)
  • Friday at 2100 to 2300 (server time): Core Rated Battle Grounds
  • Saturday at 2100 to midnight (server time): Achievement Nights
  • Sunday at 2100 to midnight (server time): Casual Raid

 

The Legion Pre-Expansion Patch Arrives July 19 (yes that is this week)

The skies over Azeroth are growing darker. . . .
 
The Legion pre-expansion patch is coming soon, and we wanted to give you a heads up about what to expect—and when you can expect it.
 
This update will include a wide variety of features and content that set the stage for the expansion, including system changes, quality-of-life improvements, and major in-game events. Some of these features will be available immediately, while other content will be unlocked in the weeks leading up to the expansion’s launch. Read on for more details.
 

The Opening Salvo

 
When the pre-expansion patch initially goes live, players will be able to immediately access many of its key system-related features. Some of these major updates include:
 
Transmogrification Updates
The new Transmogrification Collections system will make it easier than ever to collect, store, and sort through the gear you want to use for transmogging—without taking up storage space in your inventory, bank, or Void Storage. As you collect items that can be used with the system, you can browse through them—as well as sort by class or slot—in the Appearances tab in your Collections interface.
 
Class Updates
We’re making some significant changes to classes and their specs for Legion to further strengthen their identities. The core changes to spells, talents, and more are going into effect as soon as the pre-expansion patch goes live. For more information on what’s new for each class and spec, read our earlier class preview blogs.
 
We’re also making it easier to switch between specializations for different content. Players will be able to queue up for dungeons, raids, Battlegrounds, or Arenas as any role that is available to their class, while continuing to play as another role while they’re waiting. When they enter the content they’ve queued for, they will automatically switch to the suitable role upon entering (at no cost) and then switch back automatically when they leave the instance.
 

The March Toward Legion

 
In the weeks following the pre-expansion patch, we’ll be unlocking even more content that leads into the August 30 launch of Legion. We’re still determining the exact timing of these events, but players who pre-purchase Legion can expect to be playing a Demon Hunter around the second or third week of August (no later than August 17 globally). We’ll share more details in the weeks ahead, but here’s a look at what’s in store:
 
Burning Legion Invasions
Before all hellfire breaks loose upon the Broken Shore, the Burning Legion will begin its assault upon Azeroth, turning some familiar stomping grounds into demon-infested battlefields—and it will be up to the heroes of the Alliance and the Horde to face the onslaught.
 
Demon Hunter Early Access
In the weeks before launch, those who have pre-purchased Legion will get early access to the new Demon Hunter class. Players will begin at level 98 and will find themselves on the fel-shattered expanse of Mardum, where they’ll play the Demon Hunter starting experience before joining their allies in the fight against the Legion.
 
The Battle on the Broken Shore Begins
As the situation grows more dire, Azeroth’s heroes will begin their first foray onto the Broken Shore—the epicenter of the demonic invasion.
 
All of the features and content listed above (save for Demon Hunter early access) will be available to all World of Warcraft players, regardless of whether they’ve pre-purchased Legion.
