[H] 6.2 Fronts (Potential spoilers!)

Recommended Posts

The monk looked on as the ironbound elekk was brought low by the combined efforts of the Tanaan Offensive. He was uncertain, as he sent out the missives, if he could forge a force from the disparate factions of Sanctuary, the Grim, and any who fell between.

No such uncertainty remained. Syreena’s weapons cut bloody strips of flesh from the creature, and he watched as she licked the blood away, her gaze intent. Julilee’s shield hammered against the thing’s joints, driving it downward. Gazreeth, the goblin, advanced up the monstrosity’s flank, and brought blade to bear against the general atop it.

The blind mages wove their arcana together, showering the enemy leader’s reinforcements with whipping flames and searing ice. The creature’s armor buckled and exploded due to Naheal’s devices and magic. Arrows fell like shooting stars; the howl of chanted spells created an aria of doom for those who stood against their forces.

Borrowed Time and their engineers had prepared several devices to guide a ship-based assault into the peninsula. The Grim’s zealots were ready to taste the blood of the traitor Fel Horde. Sanctuary stood ready to defend the innocent, and liberate Tanaan’s captives, and to carve out the darkness of Hellfire Citadel. Darrethy’s Blackguard stood ready to fill in the cracks like so much shadow.

They were ready. Time in the warzones and on Draenor had them fully prepared. The Tanaan Offensive had begun.

23 June: Patch 6.2 Opens

28 June: The Great Work Begins (Tanaan Assault preparations and discussion at Coldstar Cantina)

10/11 July: To Hell's Heart (Raid Session 1)

Get hyped, the fun is going to begin. If you aren't already, please let me invite you to the Tanaan Offensive group!

Old Post:

"Friend, thank you for attending or at least requesting a transcript of tonight's discussion in Warspear.

As you know, Gul'dan poses a monumental threat to the Horde and Alliance alike. To defend our world, we need to stand together and prepare ourselves to deal the final blow to the Iron Horde.

I have attached multiple sites of interest to gather resources and test your mettle in the coming weeks while our sappers and scouts wear away at Tanaan's defenses.

-Kex'ti Dalendala of Sanctuary"

Hello everyone, I'm trying to organize a general interest group for 6.2 RBGs and Hellfire Citadel raiding. I know a lot of you gentlemen and ladies have both of those ready to go, but if you're interested in getting together for those activities (particularly the latter), followed and interceded by RP, please contact myself or Xaraphyne to get in on this collaborative effort.

6.2 marks the launch of Warlords PvP Season 2 and Hellfire Citadel. While PvP is its own monster, and I won't be spending much time detailing it here, PvE in general and raiding is a huge part of the WoW experience, and I was hoping to facilitate both RP and participation on the Horde side. The Eclipse event seemed to be quite successful in developing RP, and I'm hoping to continue that trend using the upcoming content.

Details:

What: HFC raids will be organized and led on Fridays following the 6.2 launch. RBGs will be set up on another day. HFC will be progression oriented, but ultimately will be casual raiding on normal difficulty. RBGs will tend to the more serious side.

When: Friday nights following the 6.2 drop.

Why: RP is awesome. Active WoW stuff is awesome. Peanut butter and chocolate.

If you're interested, please contact me so I can make sure you can participate!

The rules:

All of the RPers I've met have strong mechanics, bucking the stereotype of RPers. However, to avoid frustration and burnout on current content, there are going to be some ground rules.

1. For HFC normal, a minimum iLevel of 665 will be requested, with 670+ preferred.

a. This is based on loot drops from the PTR and similar comparisons to active LFR/Normal/Heroic raids.

b. In 6.1, this is a reasonably high gear score, but be aware that 6.2 has a lot of options to get past this requirement.

b2. Methods include: New crafted tier, mythic dungeons, PvP gear, legendary ring quest, Tanaan drops/quest items, HFC LFR (eventually. In the meantime, LFR BRF or pugged H. Highmaul/N. BRF are pretty good sources of gear.

2. For limited roles (Tanking/Healing), slots will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.

a. For whatever reason, we seem to have a rather large excess of healers relative to other roles, though there is certainly room for a few more with our current projections.

b. Secondary attention will be paid to frequent attendees.

3. Raiding will be on Fridays, time TBA. There is a 30 minute flex period, after which the raid proper will begin with or without you. It's absolutely okay to be a little late, but to make sure everyone has fun and people are ready to go when they say they are, showing up on time is super important!

4. Loot system will be personal loot, but a majority vote on specific bosses will allow a swap to group loot for things on farm.

5. Raiding will be set aside for two hours from start time (if everyone happens to show up at the end of the 30 minute flex, that leaves an hour and a half of raiding). People are welcome (and hopefully will want to!) continue past this block of time. As people get more geared, extending this period or opening another raid time is possible too!

Most importantly: This is an activity to get people together to have fun and experience parts of the game. Progression is ideal, but this is never going to be a hardcore experience. Have fun, and let's make the most of this bonding experience.

We currently have over a dozen sign-ups for this, but can still use more to ensure we always have enough numbers. Specifically, we could use a second committed tank, and several more committed healers and ranged DPS.

We're looking at one night a week, a couple hours, with the exact schedule to be finalized depending on the availability of the people who join up. Friday or Saturday night are looking likely. Keep in mind, killing Normal bosses qualifies you for Heroic loot follower missions.

And last but not least, the best part... There will be RP before, during, and after raid! Read Kex'ti's full introductory speech here.

If interested, contact PM Kexti-Ravenholdt or Xaraphyne/Julilee-TwistingNether in game, or either of us here on the forum. To get an invite to the discussion group, please PM Kexti.

I can't guarantee I'll be there this friday, but I'll try my best. My playtime has been much more sporadic lately, even when I'm online I'm afk at least half the time. >.>

Kex'ti you've done a great job organizing all of this. I wish I could do more to help!

If anyone needs help with ilvl, let me know!

I have two 685 Versatility trinkets with a big str/agi/int proc if anyone needs them. (Stone of Fire)

I also have a leatherworker with tons of leather if anyone needs leather or mail gear, or cloaks.

Or I can help you farm apexis, which you can use to buy 695 gear.

I've got everything cleared to be healing on Friday! (Yaaay IC raiding alongside Syreena D: )

I'm not quite 670 yet (666 currently), but I'm hoping to get a few more Tanaan upgrades beforehand. If I'm a couple points short, I hope that my long and storied history as a competent raid healer will cover me.

Looking forward to it!

If you're ilvl 666 you can never get another piece of gear.

Ever.

You must stay there.
