Real ID Groups -- Raid Achievements/Mog Loot/Mount Seekers

Postby Cogglamp » Fri Feb 24, 2012 8:19 am

After reading a couple of posts by people wanting to group up for raid achievements and having the pleasure to group up with a few here already to help theck get his legendary staff, I thought I'd try to organize a weekly run for those interested. As this will require Real ID, I'd ask those that are interested to PM their Real ID.

My intent is to keep this original post updated weekly with the planned run.

Given that I am an EST time player, this might not work out for those on the West Coast/Mountain regions. If there is someone willing to organize groups for those on the West Coast or those that simply cannot make the suggested times, please let me know. I will be happy to split this into two groups (or three if there is enough interest) and try to keep it updated for all. Additionally, I am Alliance so my offer to any Horde is similar to above. I'll keep it updated if you can just supply the intended run and time.

I'd like this also to be opened up to your own guild members. Not only does it increase our chances at filling up more quickly, making some new friends along the way is a nice bonus. Given that our friends list are limited, I don't need each of your guild members trying to add me so long as I have you on my list. Please give me a rough headcount if you think guildees might be interested.

Feel free to offer suggestions on raids, mounts you're seeking, loot you're dying for, etc. I'd like this to be as inclusive as possible as I've come to enjoy this forum very much and would like to try and give something back to the group.

Without further ado...

ICC 25 - Farewell to Cata

Send me a PM if I don't have you on my list.

I also approve of this idea. Sadly the only friends I have still playing WoW are Horde and I find that unacceptable for my paladin.

Sadly I can't attend your inaugural Glory run because of semiregular Sunday commitments. :( If you do any other runs please keep this thread updated, I'd love to break out my tank again.

I would love an Ulduar10 run on my Holy/Exo pally, as recently I completed ALL uld25 achieves other than the one where you use bomb bots to blast scrapbots (Nerf Scrapbots I think). In the process, learned some interesting ways to get many of the non-metas while doing the meta achieves.

Thanks Sabin. I'll make note of your Sunday commitments.

If the majority of people are precluded from Sunday runs, I have no problem moving this around or possibly making additional runs. If anyone has the slightest bit of interest, please speak up. It will make it a lot easier for me to dedicate times for people if I know there is an interest.

If you've come to troll, I don't mind that either. I'll enjoy the free bump. :P

I'd love to help, but I have raid commitments Thursday-Sunday evenings. The Thursday commitment is a regular Firelands 25N run though, as you know, and that's open to anyone who wants to join us via realid. The more the merrier, really - I much prefer bringing Maintankadins that I know via realid than having to pug people from Blackrock.

I'd be able to help on M-W evenings, preferably ending before 11 EST. I can tank or dps (as appropriate) on Paladin, Warrior, Warlock, Hunter, Rogue, Mage, or Druid.

No Alliance alts to speak of? Darn shame...

I'm going to go ahead and move it to Monday nights. If we get enough interest, I will be happy to organize additional nights.

I'm generally free on Mondays, and just spend them either pugging or helping out various friends' runs here and there, so I'd be glad to come along and meet some fellow maintankadins. I have sets for all 3 specs for my pally, as well as half a dozen other 85s that I could bring to help if needed. For more current content, feel free to sign me up as a Ret/Prot/Holy pally or Disc/Shadow priest (my two "main" toons), and for older stuff I can bring whatever.

Region: Americas
Faction: Alliance
Date: Every Thursday
Time: Generally starts 9:00-9:30pm EST
Attendees: Theckhd
Tentative: N/A
Need: Generally a warm body
Note: I believe the embers for the legendary are on reserve for theck's guildmates; need to confirm. I'm happy to coordinate interest from people here and pass it along to theck in order to keep PMs to a minimum. Real IDs will certainly help.


The Seething Cinders and siphons are reserved, yes. The embers (the first stage of the quest) are an open /roll.

It's usually a quick ~1 hour clear of 6/7. We often 1- or 2-shot Rag, depending on how many bad pugs/alts we have to bring. Obviously, the more maintankadins that show up, the more likely a quick 1-shot rag is.

We usually aim to start at 9:00, if possible. It often takes until 9:30 to fill the group if we have to rely on trade chat, though.

Thanks warden and theckhd. Updated with your info. I can confirm the theck runs too. They're darn fast and lots of fun.

Just be careful if Meloree shows up to the FL run. He loves to play raid cleave bingo for giggles. :)

My warlock is 83.5 right now. I'm more interested in getting him to 85 than mog gear right now :(

That's not a problem Sabin, I don't require previous experience or impose any gear requirement. I literally once took a ret paladin (from Blackrock, pugged via trade) who hit 85 earlier that day, and was using this trinket from a pre-Cata Swamp of Sorrows questline.

I generally give a quick explanation of each fight if someone needs it, but the first 6 are easy enough that they barely take an explanation. Rag is the only one that takes a significant amount of training/coaching.

Shame this thread didn't come up a day earlier, you guys could have come on the run last night. No rag this week, sadly, but the first 6 were cleared in about an hour.

This thread, I like.

PM incomin Cogglamp. :D

Theck, I recall you mentioning last week that some of your guildies would be taking over the FL run now that you'd finished your legendary? Either way, I'm generally still interested. It was fun :D

I have been pondering how to tackle this for awhile and finally decided last night (after realizing that I didn't have time to run with your group) to just get it up somehow.

My hope is to get a few smooth runs in the beginning to pique people's interest and possibly spread word of mouth. Let's hope for good things on Monday. Plus, it gives me something else to think about besides the AH thread.

Quick census - any EU interested?

I'm mostly Horde, but I got a DK that I could gear up for that.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

I know Andurin mentioned being EU but didn't say what faction. My offer still stands, I'm happy to be an organizing assistant for any EU people, Hordies, or folks in another time zone from the EST.

Certainly.

Alliance side: I've got a priest I'd like to finish up Firelands on (disc main spec... can dps if REALLY needed but don't expect much). Alternatively I've got a warrior tank, a resto druid (gear's a bit meh) and a death knight tank.

Horde side: I've got a holy paladin with a tank offspec (although her offspec gear is a bit unfinished)

I'm always up for something to do when not raiding. I have several chars / roles on both alliance and horde, I don't care what we doing as long as it's fun! :)

EU, that's it. My best geared chars are Horde, right now, though.

Poke me if you want to join my (already impressively huge) friendlist ^_^
