  1. Greetings everyone, With the release of patch 8.2 last Tuesday, the new raid is approaching quickly and will open on July 9th. This means that it is now time to plan the roster for the tier. Please post here or let an officer know if you plan to be raiding with us for this tier. As always with new tiers, rerolls are allowed, but priority on roles will be given to people who want to maintain the role they had in the previous tier. Looking forward to seeing you in the raid group! Raid Leader Mort
  2. Greetings everyone! With the Battle of Dazar'alor raid releasing tomorrow, I thought I'd make a post so you guys know what to expect. As always with a new raid tier, we are likely to have returning players or some people who might want to switch to another character. There is no absolutely no problem with that, but keep in mind the following : Priority will be given to people who want to maintain the role they had in the last tier. The character you pick should be geared enough that it won't hinder progression for the rest of the group. With normal dropping 385 gear, returning players or new characters should aim to be at least 365 in order to be allowed in the group for progression. This should be easily achievable with the catchup mechanics in place. Keep in mind the Darkshore warfront gear will go up when the raid unlocks, as well as M+ ilvl rewards, which makes it even easier. As usual, we will be starting with normal difficulty, and move onto heroic once we've cleared it. We'll keep clearing normal until we're far enough into heroic that there is no gear someone needs in normal that they couldn't get from our heroic kills. If you would like to watch the fights on video beforehand, Wowhead has a great guide with video for every bosses based on PTR footage. Keep in mind it is not required for you to watch those, as I will have strategies prepared for every boss, but you are encouraged to get familiar with the fights if you want to. If you have any questions, leave them below and I'll answer them as soon as possible. See you in raid! Raid leader Mort
  3. Grats on the MOTHER kill team! Here's a picture of us.
  4. While my personal stance is the same as Mastric's, after discussing it with the other officers, the majority was not in favor of allowing a separate raid team under ATR banner. As such, like Bash said, if you would like to lead your own raid team, we ask that you do so in a guild of your own. This has no effect on whether or not you're allowed in the guild, so should you decide it's no longer something you want, or if it ends up not working out, you're still very much welcome among us. Apologies for the confusion that might have been caused, it should've been discussed among officers first rather than every one giving you their personal opinion on it.
  5. I don't personally have an issue if you'd like to run a weekend raid team, as long as it's clearly a separate team from the weekdays one, and meant for people with different schedule. Our goal is to be welcoming towards all member and if you have a group that would like to run weekends, then you shouldn't be prevented from doing so. So long as it stays a separate team running, and not an extra day added for some of the week group, you have my blessing. I'll tag the other officers to see if anyone foresees an issue with this. @Mastric specifically would be the one to check with for rank logistics and the likes, as he's the only one capable of changing that. Otherwise, besides @Varibash who already answered, @Ansky, @Gromn and @Wilistari are the only other ones I can think of that might have something to add.
  6. Several people have asked me which strategies we'd be using going into raid tonight, so I figured I'd make a post about it. I'll have strategies prepared for each bosses based on Alpha and Beta testing by Fatboss, and we'll adapt as we go if there's any differences between PTR and live. Wowhead has a guide with a link to every bosses' page, which you can find here. I'll link shorter videos of the fights on live once they release, for those that would like to watch them before heroic progression.
  7. That's what happens when Warlocks start having babies. They multiply.
  8. I'll try to get you in a run next time I see you on. First step would be to get you to 305 ASAP so you can start getting some heroic gear.
  9. Everyone is welcome in the raid team, if our time fit your schedule, I'll add you to the roster! Welcome to the team!
  10. Greetings everyone, With a little less than a week to go before Uldir unlocks, it's time to make sure everyone will be ready for raiding. As of now, we have 27 full-time raiders and 5 part-time raiders planned. In case you'd like to raid but aren't on the raid roster yet, just let us know in this thread and we'll add you to the list : With that said, the only requirement we have for raid is the following : A minimum ilvl of 330 is required. This is easily reachable in a single week if you run the mythic dungeons and do your WQ. If you need help to gear up to that point, ask in guild for mythic runs happening. Given that we have over 30 people wanting to raid, entry priority will be given in the following order: People who are on the planned roster as full-time raiders. People who are on the planned roster as part-time raiders. People who would like to join but aren't on the planned roster. If you have any questions, post them below.
  11. This appears to be a meme, but I'm having a hard time deciphering it. Could you provide some precisions as to what you meant?
  12. Everyone in good standing with ATR is welcome to join the raid group. If you want to raid with us casually in BFA, I have no problem with it.
  13. You are encouraged to do whatever you need to do to enjoy the game and have fun, and if it means you are moving your main elsewhere to raid with other people, there's absolutely no problem with that. You did so in a very civil manner and as such you will always be welcome should you want to come back. As a side note, if you'd like to keep your talk permissions in TS, just let us know which of your alts you want us to promote to the "Friends and family" rank. Best of luck with your new group, and hop by anytime if you want to play WoW or any other game with us.
  14. I'll go first, I'll be tanking on my Demon hunter in BFA.
  15. Greetings everyone, Since prepatch has been out for a little while, most people likely had time to play around with the classes and start to figure out what they'll want to play come BFA. As such, we'll start planning out the raid roster. If you'd like to raid with us in BFA, please respond as to which role, and class if possible, you'd like to play for the first tier. Priority for roles will be given in the following order : Keep the same role > You stayed until the end of last tier but want to reroll > returning or new player. Please take a moment to read the basic raid rules for BFA, which can be found here : Below you will find the planned raid roster, which will be updated as people confirm which role they want to play. As a start, I used the roster during our last few weeks of Antorus. A "?" means this member hasn't confirmed what he'll be playing yet. Italicized are players that have mentioned interest in playing that role. Please confirm your role and class regardless of wether you're in the initial list or not. Tanks Mortelinnos - Demon hunter Lurhan - Demon hunter Healers Ansky - Paladin Lihuai - Monk Offthechain - Shaman Fotosynthsis - Druid Tacks - Disc Priest DPS Tychondris - Hunter Neøblack - Paladin Gromn - Hunter Queing - Warlock CrispKiller - Death Knight - Backup Tank Pukurin - Warlock Unholyfaith - SPriest Varibash - Warrior - Backup Tank Wilistari - Mage? Old man (Goose) - One of the 12 classes Mastric - Warlock - If baby Mastric doesn't destroy him Pìkachu - Mage FTFK- Spriest Thechariot - Warrior Pwnzirocks - Hunter Dambala - Mage Fdragon - Paladin Derision (justicemaker) - Warlock Zauberei - Warlock Dougstanhope - Warlock Tko - Warrior Chartul - Death knight - Part-time when available Rand - Mage - Part-Time when available Boredlock - Warlock - Part-time when available Psychosi - Rogue - Part-Time when available Wardpelican - Warrior - Part-time when available Smarticus - Warrior - Part-time when available.
  16. Greetings everyone, With prepatch having hit earlier this week, it is time to start planning ahead for BFA. In this topic you'll find the few rules and guidelines we'll be maintaining for the raid group in this next expansion. Please take some time to read them if you plan on raiding with us. 1. General raid stance There isn't much change from Legion here, we're a casual guild and our main focus is to clear heroic while having a good time together. This means that we don't have a strict attendance requirement, and everyone in the guild is welcome to join the team should they want to raid. Raid times are from 7:30-11:00 PM EST on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 2. Raid officers The raid officers going in BFA are : Raid leader : Mortelinnos. Lieutenants : Wilistari, Gromn, Ansky. During raid, decisions are taken among officers. You are expected to follow directions given by them. Any raid member is welcome to give officers their input should they want to. Likewise, if you have any concern about raid, these are the people you should go to. It should be noted that the guild rank of Director is separate from raid leadership and does not grant authority in raid. 3. Raid members As mentioned in point 1, every guild member is welcome to join the raid team if they want to, and are expected to come in when they can attend. However, occasional members cannot fill a critical role (Tank or Healer), as good attendance for those are needed to keep the group reliably going. We also require raiders to be part of the guild. Exceptions can be made for trial members, who may join us for up to two (2) weeks before they decide if they want to join us permanently. 4. Alts, rerolls and role pick Our goal is to let people play what they want to, as the prime goal is always to have fun. As such, re-rolls are allowed at the start of each raid tier, or upon returning to raid if you haven't yet raided this tier. Main changing in the middle of a tier will be treated on a case by case basis, if needed for raid composition (ex: a DPS player switching to tank/healer to fill a spot left vacant). Alts are not allowed in main runs, bar extreme circumstances (ex: Both tanks are dead and alts are needed for raid to happen). As for priority for role pick, we will give priority for roles in the following order : People who stuck with us until the end of last tier will have priority on which role they want to play, with higher priority given to those that want to maintain the role they had the past tier, and then give returning players the pick. So in short: Keep the same role > You stayed until the end but want to reroll > returning or new player. That should cover all the basics. If you have any questions or feel like some precisions are needed, leave them here and we'll try to answer as soon as possible.
  17. I'm sorry to hear that you were so unhappy with raid atmosphere that you had to go elsewhere. I hope you'll be happier with your new group. In the end, we play this game to have fun, and if it wasn't your case raiding with us, then looking elsewhere was the right thing to do. Best of luck with your new group.
  18. I perfectly understand the need for more challenging progression, having done it myself in the past. You are a great and skilled raider, I'm sure you'll be successful. I really enjoyed raiding with you as well, and am a bit sad to see you go. Best of luck wherever you're going. You'll always be welcome here should you tire of mythic raiding.
  19. The fact it's not even correct french syntax bothers me more than the spam itself.
  20. I have yet to do that grind myself, but it looks horrible. You're insane*. *See what I did there?
  21. Do not stress too much over the days you can make raid. You'll be there when you can, and if you want to. That's precisely the flexibility we want to give our members, and the reason we don't push above heroic besides the occasionnal "There's 20 people here, why not".
  22. It's fine. You come in when you can, and there's nothing wrong with it.
