“That’s just Raiding 101” I hear people say. In fact I hear people say that a lot.
I’m in an active predominantly PVE based guild that runs 3 raid teams (of which I manage one), and since our first raid team are the realm firsts for most this current tier, we’ve had a lot of inquiries from people to join the guild, who are interested in raiding. This has increased even more since our humble server has been connected with 3 other realms so far.
So what’s my point?
Well – with the increased number of players wanting to raid, I’m finding myself (and others in the guild in my position have reported the same) having to answer the same questions over and over again.
Now, I’m no insane expert in the subject, having only started taking my own raiding relatively seriously in the last 7-8 months or so. But my point is that I’ve gone through a major personal learning curve. If I can share my personal learning curve with others, in a bid to help them improve too, then I’m going to do it.
So introducing Raiding 101…a series of blog posts dedicated how to get your foot in the door, how to improve yourself and how to get the most out of your WoW game time when it comes to raiding.
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be covering the subject of raiding, from everything from the class you choose, to how many alts you have, what professions they have, which guild you choose, and let’s look together at what the top guilds in the world do, which role you take (dps/tank/healer), which websites and addons you should use to be able to measure your performance.
So if you have any questions about raiding, or more particularly how to get started, then please fire away so that I can field answer to your questions through the blog posts.
For the time being – I’m going to leave you with Episodes 29 and 30 of Talk Azeroth with Olivia Grace, wherein she talks about “How to Fail at WoW” and follows it up with “Being Better at WoW” as a starting point.
