A bunch of casual noobs get the Shannox dance down pretty pat, and down the blessed boss. The DPS took so little damage, they made my healing numbers look bad. I can cope.
Many players that run gold blogs are not what you call hard core raiders.
I raid once per week. While I have regulars, they are spread across 4 guilds, some small, but occasionally with an alt of a real progression guild. Friday nights are my raid night. The term 'regulars' is used loosely. We are strictly casual. If you have a prior commitment, no worries.
What I am strict on is flasks, enchants, gems, and experience at the previous level. For example I expect a player doing Tier 12 (Firelands) raids to have some Tier 11 (Bot/BWD/To4W) experience. If you need Tier 11 gear, you should buy it, run dungeons or Tier 11 raids. If you need Tier 12 gear, you are very welcome.
Next Friday, off to another boss. I think Beth'tilac. New players welcome (guild invite avaiable but by no means necessary). Gold bid runs. Rules here.
Once bitten, twice shy - I have clear evidence that Riot games rigs ranked games to give advantage to paying players. But I don't give you that evidence yet. You got to believe me....
