[Horde - Echo Isles] Hordecore Recruiting for ICC 25
<Hordecore>, Horde-side on Echo Isles, is currently recruiting for our 25 man Icecrown Citadel progression group. We are not hardcore or casual, but somewhere in between. We focus on raiding while not sacrificing having a good time with friends.
Tuesday-Thursday from 5:30 to 8:30 server time, located on the west coast. If you show up early around 5:15, you get extra EP for showing up.
We use the EPGP looting system. Essentially, when you help kill a boss, show up early, and stay until the end of the raid you get Effort Points. When you get a piece of gear, you get Gear Points. Each piece of gear has an assigned value of GP based on its value. When multiple people roll on a piece of gear, we give it to the person with the best ratio. Your ratio is your EP divided by your GP. We feel this system is very fair as a few people cannot reign over the guild as at a certain point, their ratio is worse than others instead of stockpiling points and spending them scarcely.
First off, we're a mature guild. No one in the group curses excessively, but some profanity gets tossed around. We also joke around. A lot. Be sure you can take the abuse, but it's all joking. We don't yell at or make fun of raiders for making mistakes.
What We Expect
You need to be mature and able to take a joke. We also expect that you have at least 90% attendance. Our raid times are listed above. While we do not mind the occasional absence for working late, parties, days off work, etc., please don't apply if your work schedule or other commitments get in the way every single week.
KNOW YOUR CLASS. That doesn't mean "DO THE MOST DPS POSSIBLE". Know what your talents do and be able to change them when patches occur, instead of waiting for the latest theorycraft. Also, instead of doing the most dps possible, talk to the raid and figure out how your abilities can influence the rest of the raid. For example, a hunter can go marksman for Trueshot Aura, a DK can go DW Frost for the haste aura.
Our Progression So Far
In ICC 10, we have cleared the first four bosses, Festergut, and Rotface. effectively putting them on farm. We have gotten the Blood Princes to 2%, Dreamwalker to 70% and Putricide to 50%.
In ICC 25, we have the first wing on farm. We've gotten Festergut to around 20%, but other than that we haven't had many attempts on other bosses.
Classes/Roles We Want
We're looking for good dps and healers that show up consistently. Unfortunately, we're not looking for tanks at this time. We have three full time tanks and a handful of others that can switch to their offspec if the need arises.
