Thanks to all the folks who came out as part of the carries on Wednesday (and to the many more who volunteered but we turned away because we simply didn’t have room!)
We ran through and killed N’zoth 4 times in about an hour, and secured AOTC for the following folks:
Jenazeel, Carnage, Criticalysm, Mauxie, Gioconda, Shamfam, Drift, Deathhoss, Vaelith, Celkian, Ioggas, Hodur, Direlord, Catybrie, Bloodtanuit, and Jarica
This is in addition to several AOTC (free entry) discord raffles and a few officer carries this sunday. It’s likely that we will do one more of these, so if you missed out, don’t fret!
Additionally, if you would rather raid on the heroic team and join the weekly full clears, check out the Raiding Rules and Regulations page for how to get involved!
Congrats to Ameena for winning a raffle to be Ministry of Defense’s first AotC carry this season! Enter the raffle currently on our Discord to win your AotC!
There will be a timewalking run of Black Temple this Saturday night, after the weekly heroic Ny’alotha raid is over, starting at about 8:30PM EST. You will need to be in the Discord raiding voice channel and be at least 430 ilvl to join in.
Over the past week we made some changes to the officer core for Ministry of Defense. Please help me welcome the following people who will be helping in the following areas:
Tiraffe has joined us as a Warlord (Raid Lead)
Gary (names you can’t pronounce) has joined the MoD officer core and will be helping with crafting and guild bank maintenance
Rip has joined the officer core and is organizer of the Sunday afternoon mythic keystone event
Also, a special thank you to @Vellitha who was also promoted to the Praetor rank.
Congratulations to the mythic raid team for getting past a difficult mechanics check!
Congrats to the Weekend Heroic Raid Team for clearing heroic Ny’Alotha these past two weekends in only 3 hours each night!
Also, don’t forget that Quetzie is still fundraising for a COVID-19 charity on her twitch stream. Check it out!
I (Quetzie) will be streaming our first guild attempts at Ny’alotha tonight and tomorrow night (and generally speaking, every thursday / friday raid slot). Raids start at 8pm EST.
If you want to see the raid, or see how we’re working out the fights, tune in!
The Warlords met and discussed some of the questions that came up during the raid meeting that we didn’t have an answer to, as well as nailed down clarifications on others.
Q: If a Mythic person has a permanent character on the Heroic team, is that character considered an “alt” or a “main” for the purposes of loot rolling?
A: If a Mythic-roster player has a character on the weekend roster that attends at least 66% of the weekend raid days, that character is considered a “main” for the purpose of loot rolling. If the character doesn’t attend at least 2/3 of the weekend raids, they will be considered an alt, and will fall into line on the loot rolls as such. If you want to keep a permanent weekend-roster character, you must let Lineda know that your character is considered a “main” weekend character. Otherwise, mythic players on the weekend team will be considered visitors (alts) and will not have attendance logged and will not be assumed to be main roster for rolling loot.
Q: Can we donate gold instead of raw materials for Vanguard donations?
A: Yes. If you do not want to spend the time farming materials, you can send 5k gold directly to Urostek. This will be used to purchase more expensive items like vantus runes, pricey herbs, etc.
Any character who intends to swap needs to provide performance logs (either from the weekend team or a pug). A character who is ‘visiting’ the weekend team only for the purpose of getting logs is required to pass on loot rolls during this time (it would not be fair to join the weekend group, take BiS loot, and then leave them forever). The weekend team does not exist to feed the mythic team.
There is still a 2-week notice in effect. You must provide performance logs at the time you tell us you want to swap. You can not tell us you want to swap, raid for 2 weeks on the weekend team, hand us logs on Monday, and expect to come to Mythic raid on Thursday. We will need time to look at the logs and analyze that you are performing to a similar standard.
Time / Schedule:
The new raid times are 8-10pm EST Thursday, 8-11pm EST Friday. We realize that not everyone is going to be able to make the 11pm night on Friday, however there will not be a penalty for dipping early. Normal and Heroic are flex, and anyone who needs to leave early during Mythic gives a chance for weekend raiders to get Mythic experience.
