Hey guys long time no see!

So now that MoP release date has been announced i think its time we caught up and got some thing settled. I have a few things that i feel we need to get in place before we get too close to exp:

- Is anyone quitting; do we need to recruit new members?
- Is anyone rerolling; how is the setup looking (also related to recruiting i guess)
- Are we gonna stick with our old raid times or change them up / add more?
- Are we gonna make 5 man dungeon farm grp's or just take is as it comes? Im thinking shortly after release here to maximize our gear farm.
- When are we gonna start raiding again? (Imo we should start raiding before MoP release to get back into business)
- Is anyone familiar with the MoP raid tactics as they are looking now or we assign one or more ppl to take a close look at them and actively take the position as raid leader?

Okay so these are the things that i have thought about and i feel we need to get in place, feel free to add more if i forgot something, and lets discus my points please. Looking forward to having and raiding with you all again!

Dangerous to post on the forums in this part of the summer /DS-boredom. Can't tell who will be reading the site at this point.
In any case i'll still be playing. most likely Blood (although the flavor-of-the-month-whore in me is looking at a possible monk tank :P)
I imagine alot of people coming back when the pre-launch patch hits with the new talents so my guess is we'll try for raids at that point with our main group if enough people come back, and try for some planning at that point.

I know that there might not be many ppl reading these forums atm, but seeing that you have, and that you have subscription, maybe you could spread the word about it ingame? ;)
How strongly are you feeling about that monk re-roll? Monks are the worst class any of us could reroll too seeing that it would slow our progress of that much more leveling required, ofc its ppl own choice though.
I think we should start raiding before the pre-launch patch, cuz that will prolly only last a feew weeks right? I was thinking that we should start no later than a month before launch?
Another thing i thought about was that new legendary quest or w/e. Am i right to understand that ANY of us can start the Q and we have to decide who goes through with it, seeing that there are no class restriction? I havent rly looked to much into it so i might be wrong.. feedback pls!
Anyways i make it your responsibility to spread the word about this thread ingame Titus, Im counting on you!

Responsibility? i dodge/parry that shit easily Zala. i'm sticking with blood for starters. at least to make sure it's the same op class it's always been. i'm too lazy to level 1-90 when there's pandas to kill.

I don't know much about the legendary quest thingy, haven't given it much thought tbh. leave that for when we actually level/start raiding. no need to think about it now imo (other than ban xoriah from it :P).

i see labzy, chill, xav, pwnzu sometimes on wow. xav and labzy did invites for a run today actually but we could not get it going since we're still lacking alot of our main group.

My thoughts are.....it's currently too hard to get something going since people either don't know about it, or don't log on since theres nothing (only DS) to do. People should hopefully be back in full once the pre launch patch comes since they want to play with their talents, rotations and tanks getting their hit and exp dodge cap up to snuff (loving it), before starting to level. Thats when discussions and decisions could be made imo, not when we don't have everybody here or ingame voicing their opinion or availability for raids.

BTW. looks like there is a 1 week wait time from launch to the first raid is opened up. so we won't be able to rush all sick like to raid as fast as possible as in the past. i believe cata raids were open at launch right?

Gives us time to level pvp toons (looking at you zala)

If the pre-launch patch hits 4 weeks before MoP then its np to get things sorted then, but what if its only 2 weeks? that would only leave us with 2 weeks to get the grp together and see if we need replaces etc.
I REALLY like the 1 week delay on raids, means we can take our sweet time getting decked out in full Hc dungeon gear / craftable and maybe as you say even level an alt before raids start, lovin' it! Seeing how awesome warlocks look atm Im even considering rolling that as my MoP main, but dont know if i can bring myself to leave my pretty pala behind :<

My assumption is that the patch will hit 2 to 3 weeks before launch does. and with the added week before we can actually raid, we have 3-4 weeks to set the group in stone.
I agree it's best to get ahead of things and try to sort stuff out ahead of time, but there's the problem of getting a hold of people at all when we don't see them + things never really works out as planned during a launch.
Some level slow, some read quest text, some can't get enough time to play etc........gods laughing when people make plans etc etc.
We can hope to raid in the exact same group as before, but there is no garuantee, and then the problem of getting someone new/old into the group now when hardly nobody are playing the game. working stuff out when prelaunch patch hits just seems like the least amount of hassle imo

About the warlock though. definetely go for that for pvp :P instant fear on a 10 second cooldown. sick sick sick sick sick. the dmg seems good too on beta atm. nerfed since the godmode they had previously, but still good dmg (for pve at least). Need to get mash tired of guild wars as soon as that launches so we can go 2200 instantly, cata had only a 1 week wait before releasing the arena season right?

On a side note for all you Blood DK's who read these forums (me). Blood tap is back off the global CD, so insane rune regen for more Death Strikes here i come.

Warlocks are looking so much more fun than they currently are, can't wait. Im abit concerned about the cast time on demonic gateway but still, thats one super sweet skill! Would be awesome if we could get alot of games done early on before too many ppl get too much gear. Im also rly hoping that destro pvp will be viable, pls pls pls pls blizz! I'm not sure mash will ever get tiered of GW, he kinda loved the first one and i think this nr. 2 will be alot better from the looks of it, but i think we can talk him into some pvp atleast, or well he doesnt have a say in it rly..
What class will you be leveling as pvp alt? the shammy or?

Yes i think the shammy for pvp alt at least to start with before we find out if there is a healer that is COMPLETELY OP AND UNKILLABLE, in which case i'll level that asap. but from the looks of it shamans will stay strong though i'm not completely up-to-date on their totem changes

Edit; PS although with the longer cooldown on interrupts in general healing does indeed look alot easier to get off(as long as you don't look at warlocks instant fear on a 10 second cooldown. that just looke too sick. hexes are not instant, traps need time to prep after being launched, poly's are not instant. so gz on your 10 second cd blind and await the nerfs :P

Alright so it'll be lock/shammy/?.. is Mash going rogue or are we trying shadowcleave again?
Also as far as i remember they alrdy did nerf blood fear if the CD is 10 sec now. Used to be none or 5 sec, plus it costs 10% max hp so you cant spam it mindlessly.
Tbh i dont get why blizz has increased the CD on interrupts. Now its gonna be completly impossible to kill a healer 1v1, but i guess its not that bad for us since we mostly lost to meele's training you.
Woot how come he wont he play GW:2? O_o
