I joined my current raid team in the guild Naenae during Patch 4.1 in Cataclysm. As long as I have been a member it has offered me what I want from raiding, given my current real life schedule. The team has successfully cleared normal modes with some heroic progression; 1/7 H Firelands and 3/8 H Dragonsoul. We were able to achieve 2 Dragonwrath’s and 1 set of legendary daggers. Unfortunately the release of Diablo 3 and the end of expansion doldrums hit the team hard. Two members decided that they wouldn’t be returning in Mists of Pandaria. That coupled with real life commitments from many members at the end of last year have caused the team to have a late start to raiding this expansions content.
Now the time is right. There has been some changes in team structure; several role changes (tanks switching to dps) and the previous raid leader stepping down. My desire to raid has lead to me taking up the raid leader position. Four weeks ago after a small recruitment drive we went into our first raid. Week 1 we went 4/6 Mogu’shan Vaults and 6/6 in week 2 (Ahead of the Curve). We have since ventured into Heart of Fear (2/6) and 3/4 in Terrace of Endless Spring (with elite protectors), thanks to a friends lock out. Our progress has come to a halt because of tank reliability. The previous tank I recruited has had difficulty making our raid times and this is seriously affecting our progression. So I am recruiting again.
The team is currently looking for a tank, preferably a Death Knight or Monk, but will consider other classes and a ranged dps, preferably a Warlock.
