Legion is here and a lot of our raiders have spent a lot of time doing all they can to prepare for raiding. That's great! We've had a few questions about what the requirements are going to be for raiding, So thats what this post is going to be about!
First of all, 3rd relic slot should be obtainable by everyone, and is therefore a requirement. No exceptions.
The second big thing is your item level. We are going to have 845 as a guideline, But for obvious reasons of how the rings and neck works, we are going to accept if you have a 820 ring with a socket with perfect stats over a higher ilvl with bad stats. We trust in your ability to make your character as good as it can get!
The normal requirements still apply. Read up on fights, Come prepared with Flasks, pots and 375 food! Enchants (Back + Rings, And Warlords of Draenor neck enchants AT LEAST.) and gems (blue gems, no greenies).
We are also going to be harsher on the attendence this time around. The raid starts 20:00 server time. If you are not there on time, you are not counted into attendence for the evening. Same goes if you have to leave early for whatever reason. We were a little to gentle on giving out attendence during HFC, And attendance is one of criteria for our performance reviews and affects selection for raid spots. The mythic mount will also be given it based on attendance again
We would also like to remind everyone with a few guidelines of things that are going to help your character progression a lot.
Artifact Knowledge is SUPER important. If you fall behind on this, you are falling behind a lot. Done every 5th day, But can be "prepared", so you need to log in every 9 days.
Daily Random HC gives a big chunk of Artifact Power which is a good idea to do every day. Same goes for the big World quests.
Suramar is a great source for Artifact Power as well as needed to unlock Court of Stars and Arcway mythic only dungeons.
While we will not have a requirement on how many artifact traits you have unlocked, we do want you to have as many as possible unlocked by the time raiding is released.
If there's any questions, feel free to talk to any of our officers!
