Greetings Everyone!

Finally at last the new raids are here. While Gaiscioch hasn't been known for raiding in the recent past, I would like to show the world that we can pull it off. Our monday night fun runs are going to take a bit of a new direction. With Renera's help we will be taking our team and splitting it into multiple groups.

Team #1: Progression Raiding

This group of 10-players will change from week to week and will be lead by Foghladha. They will play their hand at the new raid. This group will have requirements and all members of this raid must have 2000 hit and be able to clear 200k dps on their builds. (Not including healers). They must also be willing to play multiple roles to help the team. 

Team #2: Gearing Up And Practice Runs

This group of 5-10 players will work on getting to the goals set forth above. The will be working with Renera to conquer SPE's and 10-man classic raids to gear up and learn how to deal with raid mechanics. 

End Game

It is my goal to hopefully be able to grow together to be able to establish 2 full groups of 10-man raiders that want to explore all the game has to offer. I will be using a DPS/HPS meter and will be keeping track of player performance as to fill the gaps and weaknesses we might find. Whether it be in a build, or gear, or just writing a new macro. We will help each other fine tune to become the most effective raiding machines with a friendly atmosphere.

Bottom Line

I want to prove you don't have to be a jerk to raid. I want to go out there, have fun dying a billion times before we get it right and keep things light and friendly. I want to be there as each and every one of you that decides to take this step with me earns those achievements for killing these raid bosses. Let's go make some waves and have fun doing it.

Sounds like fun, but for the foreseeable future most of my Monday's won't have me available until 9:30ish. I could always see about filling a hole in either group as I know people come and go. I was quite entertained listening to you guys last night and all I can say is somehow you did a good job herding cats because you did finally get to the end of that one crazy dungeon.

Aloha Fog,

This sounds great.  I am interested in participating, but I will never (or very rarely) be online at 3:00 (HT) / 6:00 (PT).   If you are still going at 6:00 (HT) / 9:00 (PT) then perhaps I can join.

What happens in the hedge maze stays in the hedge maze!

I look forward to seeing everyone be able to experience more of what Rift has to offer. I hope everyone gets excited at the possibility of it opening a new door previously closed to them. Lets get some smiles on everyones faces as we go hand in hand into the unknowns and gather skill and possibly some loot for everyone.

And as always if you have an empty spot I'm willing to join in. It will be good to hear about correct builds and macros especially for my poor little Chloro build. Hope she gets some pushes in the correct direction this patch. As well as DPSing. I'm never quite sure how to read the numbers on those Elite/Boss dummies. It always appears to me I'm hitting hard and would feel great to have some advice.

Will be waiting for servers to come up later today, just like everyone else, but realizing realistically there will be glitches that we'll have to wade thru to get fixed. I really think Trion always does a pretty good job of it.

LOL Househippo, that hedge maze is immortalized as stream. I was fully entertained listening. I knew I couldn't go in the second group run by Renera since he was doing a 5 man thing this time. Anyway, I might pop in to listen and fill a spot if one pops up since it really was after 9:30 my time before I got in the game so 30 minutes after the start.

This sounds very interesting. I never did get to raid so this would be good to get my feet wet. Although i will have to choose what toon to boost to 70 and then work on getting the gear and being able to hit that much. I like the end goal and hope we can reach it ! ( one of the reasons i never got into raiding was because i was always afraid of getting yelled at if i made a tiny mistake ). I am just curious will be needing any Add ons for the raiding or specific macros for our class ?. or are all those optional 

It will be fun to learn how to raid.. Since I never done it before I have a feeling i might be responsible for all the wipes that happen during the raid because i will be so clueless about where to stand and what to do lol. 

I am not even sure if Rogues can do raids... And I am still not used to my mage at all :(

Melcom who couldnt rouges do raids?

Dont look for excuses, look for solutions.

Rogues are some of the most versatile characters in the game. Theres no reason why they couldnt raid.
