9.1 Mythic Self-Evaluations

Hello Mythic Raiders!

Once again, the raid leads are asking you to be critical of your performance. Those who were around in Nathria remember this; for those who are new, don’t sweat.

We’re asking you to send Tiraffe and/or Quetzie a self-evaluation of your performance thus far in the tier. Consider what your strengths are, and where you are struggling. We ask that you tell us 3 things that you can improve on, and how you intend to do so (please be more specific than “die less” or “higher DPS”). These evals don’t have to be long – a few sentences is fine.

Quetzie streaming for St. Jude PLAY LIVE 2021

It’s that time of year!

Raid Mom for Kids 2021!

For the last several years, I (Quetzie) have been doing charity streams to benefit various causes. I started in 2019 with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, later raised money for a MoD family in need that fall, and last year donated $500 to various COVID-19 PPE causes. This year I return again and am looking to raise $500 to donate St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with their yearly PLAY LIVE campaign.

To up the ante for my fundraising goal, I am going to be doing a number of incentives to encourage donations. Some of these donations benefit you, while some of these donations just harass me. You’ll have to decide which options suit you best.

PvP Meeting Minutes 1/30

Gladiator requirements and rewards

  • Attendance of half the PvP events within a month’s period for promotion.
  • 2500g repairs, Access to tabs 5&6 in the guild bank

General rules reiteration

This group is about having fun for everyone both progression and casual minded. Group is also aimed at not following the generally known toxic PvP atmosphere.

New event discussion, new RBG day

Opening polls for interest in a guild bracket style tournament with prizes for incentive

New RBG day confirmed but no definite time yet, to be determined within the next few weeks.

A lot of attendance and players being locked out of groups due to early attendance led to the idea of a new RBG day.

Bring up possible roster system use in reference to comps and attendance for RBGs

Event ideas and Q&A

Q: Will there be rating requirements to not penalize high rated players?
A: There should be organization with requiring rating depending on average rating of the group those specific nights. Also we can utilize things like the other RBG night since we will have multiple, to have some nights focus on lower rating players or alts to get them into RBGs.

Q: How is current rating going to affect the comp especially as we push later ratings?
A: We encourage alts so we can adjust our comp better when we reach those points, and to make our nights a generally easier and fun time instead of having to have a “work with what we got” mentality.

Q: Do alternate unscheduled events still lead to promotions?
A: They can lead to bonus points to maintain or help promotion to Glad or higher positions.

Q: What are the new requirements for RBGs?
A: Upcoming vers % requirements (% to be determined but expect 20%+ to be l ikely), Rating, and new 200 i lvl minimum required to attend now. We will focus more on confirmations now more than before in order to attend RBGs as well, from this point forward the 1 week grace period will be enforced and you will not attend RBGs if you are not a confirmed player; after that period we reminded you to confirm, no exceptions.

Castle Nathria Raid Roundup 01/12/21 – 01/25/21

Since the last raid roundup, the Mythic team has reached 9/10 heroic and 1/10 mythic. The Weekend Warriors are 10/10 normal and 3/10 heroic. Neither team has advanced this quickly into new content before, and both teams are experiencing the pains of fast progression and the stress of improving quickly. We’ll be going over some of the difficult areas that members of each team needs to focus on to get over their respective hurdles – mostly down to better communication and positioning.

Mythic Raid Self-Evaluations

Hello Mythic Raiders!

As we move into heroic full time, we want to make sure everyone is putting their best foot forward! As such, we’re asking you to send Tiraffe and/or Quetzie a self-evaluation of your performance thus far in the tier. Consider what your strengths are, and where you are struggling. We ask that you tell us 3 things that you can improve on, and how you intend to do so (please be more specific than “die less” or “higher DPS”).

Castle Nathria Raid Roundup 12/8/20 – 12/14/20

Welcome back, and it’s been a while!

Some of you may remember the Weekly Raid Roundups from Uldir and Battle for Dazar’alor back in the day. Once we got heavy into having 2 separate teams, it became a struggle to keep up, so I stopped doing them. It acted as a place to keep notes of changing strategies and “what worked, what didn’t” so everyone was on the same page moving forward.

With the return of the Roundup there will be a few changes.

  • I don’t intend to do these weekly, but during key points in progression, it is a helpful place to keep track of what everyone has been up to. So you are likely to see these for the next few weeks, winding down as progression ends up slowing over time.
  • I’ll sort them by team, so relevant information is easily accessible (though I encourage you to check out the review for the other team as well – you never know what might be useful).
  • Quetzie diagrams are making a return.
  • The Roundups are likely to be much more list-y than previously.

Castle Nathria Boss Guides

Almost every group handles bosses slightly differently. As we progress through the tier we may change strategies. But we expect everyone to start out on the same page.

In the past we’ve recommended popular content creators like FatBossTV or Hazelnutty for our raiders to get a good understanding of mechanics. That said, we’ve really noticed that two new faces in the game have created resources will be excellent strategy builders and introductions for raiders both new and experienced.

Mythic Trap 

Mythic Trap has mechanic-by-mechanic breakdowns for each boss fight. The dev has filters what’s important to specific roles, and highlights the differences between normal, heroic, and mythic. It uses small, repeating video loops of each mechanic, rather than the whole fight. Clips have been provided by Ready. Check? Pull! and each fight also has a complete kill-vid at the end if that’s your sort of thing instead.

Shriekwing
Huntsman Altimor
Hungering Destroyer
Artificer Xy’mox
Sun King’s Salvation
Lady Inerva Darkvein
The Council of Blood
Sludgefist
Stone Legion Generals
Sire Denathrius

Side note: Mythic Trap has similar breakdowns for dungeons. Check them out for M+ tips!

Tactical Air Horse / Castle Pineapplia

Tactical Air Horse built a minigame, Castle Pineapplia, that you can play in your browser that teaches the basic mechanics. It gets you playing the game before you play the game, and drills repetition of important mechanics – dodge donuts! Don’t stand between allies! Drop puddles against the walls! Combine with Mythic Trap’s guides and you should have a good memory and understanding of the basics for each fight!

You can download the game from the web

Or, play it directly in the browser
