How much interest is there in a once/week raid?
« on: October 12, 2012, 09:16:38 AM »
OK, so I'm gonna stick my neck out here and see how much interest there is in a once/week raid.  I'm on East Coast time and work, so it has to be compatible with that, and I have only certain nights available (Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday, maybe Sunday, but I'd prefer weekday), but given those constraints, who would be interested?

Please let me know what main role (tank, healer, melee DPS, ranged DPS), alternate specs/toons you have and any time/day constraints, and if I find there is a viable number and mix, I'll see about setting something up.  I would also need an alternate raid leader or two to help out when I can't make it.

By its very nature, it will be on the casual side, but I would expect people to be reasonably serious about effort, attendance, gearing, etc.  I would really hope to not have any official loot rules other than "Don't be a jerk."

I give no guarantees at this point about anything other than let's see what happens....

I was contemplating posting something similar to this, but maybe I should volunteer to help organize instead.

 Ranged DPS, prefer Wednesday or Friday.  I will have to check but my husband (Lodestone, DK tank) might also be interested at least on an occasional basis.

ETA:  preferences for day are just that, preferences.  I'm flexible.  :)

I would be interested but the problem is my work rota means that for any given day it is a 50/50 availability at best. So the best I could do would be as a fill in with Andius ranged DPS.
Andius (Hunter 110),Belandius (Priest 110),Dalandius (Warrior 110),Drandius (Shaman 110),Elandius (Rogue 110),Vandius (Mage 110),Deandius (Deathknight 110),Delandius (MoonKin Druid 110),Jinandius (Paladin 110),Shandius (Warlock 110) Kamandius (Monk 110), Ishandius (Demon Hunter 110)

It looks like Kaganu is starting up a raid too and rather than trying to split people, I am throwing in with him.  People should feel free to decide on their own of course.

Argh, I meant to post this here earlier, but I seem to have failed.  Kaganu is seeing if we can get a group together tonight (Monday) at 7:30 to see about shaking things out and trying before the weekly reset to get stuff.  It's past that now, but if you see this, we may be going tonight.

Well I missed it and I missed the pickup on the 17th too.  I was likely in game at both times, but no one said anything to me.

I thought we were trying to set up something with a regular and known time and day so we could come prepared. 
Is there a reason we aren't using the ingame calendar?
