Antorus Raid Requirments for the casual team

by Drew-GM, 14 days ago

With Antorus coming out tomorrow I wanted to quickly mention a change we will be making to the casual teams requirements.
The casual team has always been about being having a good time and providing an opportunity for anyone who has an interest in raiding to come along. We have always set the barrier of entry quite low to allow as many people as possible to join us. That said, we do need to have some basic requirements to insure that people are able to make an appropriate contribution to the team.
For the Antorus raid we are asking that you have an item level of at least 890(ish). This is a very achievable number with all the catchup mechanics available. There are lots and lots of ways to gear up this expansion. Dungeons, LFR, PVP, crafting gear and working on quests in Argus. If you need and advise or help getting to this item level, please ask. We can definitely get you there if you are willing to try.
The other thing I wanted to address for this raid tier is tank knowledge. Taking is arguably the most technical role in any raid and also the least forgiving. Every other role in a raid can be "taught on the fly" with an explanation and calling instructions during the fight. Learning the tanking role this way is possible but far from ideal. For the Antorus raid I will be asking potential tanks to do a bit of homework. If you want to tank, please spend some time watching videos before hand and/or reading up on the fights. I really need people who fill that role to be prepared and have a general idea about how the fight works and how it should be tanked. You don't need to be an expert, just have a general idea of what is going on. I have linked videos for all but the last two fights in the Discord Raid Strat text channel. They are all around 3-4 minutes so we're not talking about a huge burden here.
If you have any questions about this or anything else relating to the new raid, please speak up. We will help you in any way we can.

Thanks all
