Many people have been asking about raiding since this guild was founded, and it wasn't until Flex was announced that I gave it serious thought. Don't get me wrong, any member is able to put together a raid group if they want to. I have nothing against you doing things I'm not present for.
With that disclaimer out of the way, here's what you need to know if you're at all interested in raiding with Doobjanka in 5.4.
1. I don't see raiding as a job. You will never get homework, you won't be penalized if you can't go but raiding spots are first come, first served.
2. I prefer to experience all raid bosses fresh. You're only a noob once and it's a lot more fun to be able to chat later about how terribly you wiped before you finally figured out the mechanics than to spend 30 minutes explaining a fight in vent. I know this style is not for everyone so don't sign up if you can't stand dying horribly constantly. We will make progress, but I have no plans to ever see heroic modes until I can zerg them in 6.0.
3. Again, if you feel the need to explain fights before actually attempting them, this is not the raid group for you.
Example from my old guild raiding Firelands:
"Okay, there's this Hunter guy with two pets coming up now. Try to tank them all." Group wipes. "Okay, run back. Now this time maybe tank both the adds near him." Group wipes. "Okay, one of these dogs is jumping all over the place and killing people. Maybe we should kill him first."
4. I find wipes hilarious, the more complex the better. If you get frustrated by dying, this might not be for you. I always end up with that one raider that will fall off anything it's possible to fall off of. Or life gripped off of if Ertin is there.
Proudly volunteering to this website since 11/09!
