I don't really understand this wall of text. So, simply put, I joined the raid and we wiped at Gunship, everyone left, and I will be able to join to another raid tomorrow with totally different people, who wiped at Gunship as well?
Meh, I don't like to have only "half" the implementation.Now, ICC10 & ICC25 share the same lockout (per boss). I like the idea , honest, since my guild is a 10m raid only... but I liked the feature in Cataclysm because I could FINALLY get the same loot as the 25m ... now I have the feature, and I can't run my regular HM ICC10 and pug my ICC25 ? I still need loot from ICC25 and I'm the main tank for my ICC10... so what, I'm screwed ? That kind of suck IMO....Blizzard shouldn't implement half a feature.
Even though I really don't like the idea of combining a 10m group lockout with a 25m group lockout, I think they could do very interesting raids using this system.For example, what if there was a 41 boss raid. Out of these bosses, there are 4 wings which hold 10 bosses each (sorta like ICC, but much larger). The way a guild would go about doing it would be that you would make 4 10m groups to clear each of the wings (thus crossing those bosses off the list for the week). Once all the wings are cleared, the 4 10m groups join together to take on the last boss in a 40m group. Never going to happen, but just saying what potential this new lockout system could have.
I'm sry but if you need this kind of help to pass content and you still dont have gear you need help. My main is in a top 10 guild on my server so he has really nice gear but I never took my shammy in with the guild because he made 80 about 6 months ago and I just don't think hes ready to run with the big boys.But I pug and I don't understand how people can't gear or get geared. People need to take there head outta there butt and start reading and using there brain. I had a friend move across the country and move in with me and she thought she would be raid ready in all 200 gear I think this is what is mostly the problem is that people just don't understand what they need to have or do.I have lower level alts in another guild and I give them info to help em out but they didnt start listening until I linked Lantea's Achievements and told em I know what im talkin about but still some dont listen but they also dont look for the info on sites either. This is the stuff that pisses me off and im ok with makin it a lil easier for people to progress and what not but please dont dumb it down for the retards that wont do a lil research because it aint hard.Research isnt just a wow thing i've looked up how to do stuff in tons of other games so if you dont research plz do or let people know.
I like it all except the Heroic thing.Like right now with ICC, we always do Gunship on heroic because it is easy. But this means it will lock me with this raid and I won't be able to join another ICC raid.
Great response, Drolfeir. I agree, and hadn't thought of that angle. It sure would make it easier to explain though ;)
