OK, so this group really hasn't gotten started, despite a couple of raids that have formed at the last minute or on short notice. Even so, the group seems to have the mechanics of the first fight in Vaults down, but we are lacking the DPS to make the enrage timer.
I'd like to propose a few things:
1) We settle on a regular day of the week, even if it's only one day for now and even if we have to change it later. I am going to propose Wednesdays since that's the best day of the week for me, but people who are serious about coming should speak up. (Only day I absolutely cannot make it is Thursday.)
2) If we skip this Wednesday (Halloween), that gives everyone one more full week to do some more gearing up, gemming/enchanting/reforging, etc before coming to try again. People who want to come should try to do at least some of this prep over this week.
