What we’re doing…
Alright, nerds! Here’s what we’re doing:
OVERVIEW: Straight shot to Blackhand on M-BRF for a chance at the mount. I have the key to skip, so don’t worry about that.
Please be familiar with the mechanics and mythic changes for the fight. Continuing to fail on mechanics will result in removal. Removal from two raids – concurrent or otherwise – will result in a ban from this series.
PREPARATION: As always, a threat meter and some boss encounter add-on (e.g. DBM, VEM, Big Wigs) are absolutely required. We will also be utilizing Public Vent for this event so make sure you have the program installed and updated in advance.
Be online and ready to go 10-15 minutes prior. This means flasks, potions, food, gear, upgrades, enchants, etc. We will start clearing trash as soon as possible so we can pull the first boss of the night quickly.
DO YOUR RESEARCH!! You will be expected to know what you need to do for your class and role coming in. Have ideas for how you can change your build to make this fight that much easier. Check out this video for the strategy we will be utilizing for this fight: youtu.be/AgA-L1x73fA
ROSTER: First and foremost, the item level requirement is firm – sign up with the toon you will be bringing, or you will be ignored. After ilvl, I will be looking at an optimal group comp, and specific raiders will be picked based on my personal experience with them or their good standing with the OpenRaid community.
RESERVES: ML will be utilized for all events in this series. You may reserve one piece of gear each week (please note it in your RSVP comment) but the mount will be awarded based on a roll bonus system. Everyone who is in group when BH is killed and does not win a mount will be granted a +5 to their roll range for the following week (meaning you ‘/roll 105’ instead of the normal ‘100’).
A Google Doc I will manage and update every week to track roll bonuses can be found here: tinyurl.com/zx2my55
RAID NOTES: This will be the first in a series of events going as many weeks as possible straight to the pre-patch, when blue posts confirm the BH mount will no longer be 100%.
