I know it's a bit late, but as a reminder, today is election day for us non-bananas and non-Canadians. Voting is one of the fundamental rights that we enjoy as Americans, and it's important to exercise it. Even if you live in a solidly red or blue state as I do (fuck you, Kentucky), there are still important local and state elections in which you can participate (representatives, senators, etc). So please, if you're of age and registered to vote, do so.
For raiders: Blizzard has decided not to add a cauldron for guilds in Mists of Pandaria. Perhaps this is some way they hope to encourage us to get out in the world. Regardless, this means that you, as a raider, are responsible for providing your own flasks for raids. As a raider you are required to have with you three flasks appropriate for your spec each raid night. The following is a list of the flasks and required materials:
Flask of the Warm Sun (Intellect): Crystal Vial x1, Silkweed x4, Golden Lotus x1
Flask of Falling Leaves (Spirit): Crystal Vial x1, Green Tea Leaf x4, Golden Lotus x1
Flask of Winter's Bite (Strength): Crystal Vial x1, Fool's Cap x4, Golden Lotus x1
Flask of Spring Blossoms (Agility): Crystal Vial x1, Snow Lily x4, Golden Lotus x1
Flask of the Earth (Stamina): Crystal Vial x1, Rain Poppy x4, Golden Lotus x1
There are plenty of alchemists in the guild that will be able to help you in making these flasks.
In case it wasn't said enough following Tier 13, amazing job everyone. We fully cleared the tier before it hit the largest nerf, and finished sixth on the server for the tier. I hope everyone has enjoyed their break from raiding following the release of the expansion.
Now, I know some people have been asking when we are going to resume raiding, and now I have the answer for you. Our first raid night will be Tuesday, October 30, at 8:15 PM server. The event has been posted on the in-game calendar already. This gives everyone two weeks to get their stuff together for raiding. The most important reputations for you to pay attention to are Golden Lotus and the Klaxxi as they can provide solid upgrades from valor points.
As I hope everyone is aware, we were discussing changing our raid days, and have settled on a final set of days. The new raiding days will be Tuesday, Thursday, Friday from 8:15 to 11:15 server. These days seemed to work best for the most people, with minimal schedule conflicts.
If you have updated your DBM for 5.0 through the curse downloader, you might have missed something very important. Namely, the version of DBM that is updated through the downloader only contains the Mists of Pandaria module. The Cataclysm module can be found here: http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/deadly-boss-mods-cataclysm-mods
All raiders should have this module downloaded and installed for raid week beginning on August 29.
Tyzall, I'm going to try and sit down with the officers and hammer out a concrete date for raids and an idea of what the raid team will look like. Expect a news post on the main page in the next couple days.
