    No worries, plan is to get going between 2030-2100 Server time, give people more time to get sorted after work etc.

    Its about balance to be fair, the alt run has never been a boost group, we've got away with it in normal because Normal is easier than LFR.

    What became apparent the other night was that some fights, have a dps requirement. We've not noticed in main raid as we were already on the point of outgearing it. Kingaroth for example, I've only seen 4 waves of adds our first week, we weren't looking at him being dead before a 5th. Eonar as well becomes problematic without decent burst. Same for Hasabel, Adds on High Command, only so much can be offset by the higher DPS alts.

    What this doesn't mean is that people are arbitrarily banned, Each week when we start Heroic, All DPS, that the healers are capable of supporting will be allowed to come, Worldbreaker will be the bench mark against which i'll filter the raid for later fights. I will probably extend this to include Hounds as well. So nobody barred, everyone will get the opportunity each week to show they've improved and got themselves upto the required standard.

    To Jaz, go to Wizie, oh wait, We don't have any Arcane Mages you can ask for advice.
    Menya's DH has done fine most runs she's come on.
    Thermo would usually come as Heal, Scarce, I rarely say no to more healing, BM Hunters however, they get all whiny when I send them into Portals.

    Arcane is easy, just follow these simple steps:

    1. Turn off your dps meters
    2. Do the fight, don't die, and have fun
    3. After the fight turn dps meters back on
    4. Try not to cry
    5. Cry a lot

    Jokes aside Mog, I think I figured out what was happening with the pet at portal keeper. When a BM hunter uses a portal (or the jump at Eonar) the pet despawns and spawns next to the hunter with some miliseconds delay. Because the boss is close to the portal and also in range of kill command, if you try to kill command before the spawn/despawn thing happens, it trys to kill command from the platform, and it bugs. Science! :p

    Side Note: When we start Heroic next week, we will actually start with Aggramar\Argus on Normal, so as to not lose any trinket\upgrade items. We'll probably have to kill Worldbreaker to get to the shortcut, but thats not a huge deal.

    As much as I'd like to come, migraines and shoulderpains might make me sit this one out.

    Migraines and shoulderpains might very well be from the neck. Get yourself some paracetamol + orphenadrine if you can

    Provisional Lineup:

    Tanks - Mog\Lumaa
    Healers - Epeen\Tyche\Reinhawk(Later bosses only)
    DPS - All signed, and anyone who isn't that might want to come along.

    PS. That means you're DPS for first bosses Rein, not that I don't want you :)

    See, I thought until the last minute when he told me otherwise about the unpunctual friend that B would attend to explain that I was (am) away this weekend visiting friends with my daughter in tow....

    Since he wasn’t actually about, thought I’d actually say why I wasn’t there!

    No doubt you did better without having a gala handicap on the team though ;)

    Should be fine for Tuesday though, if you want me! Would understand if you’d rather keep the team that started HC ofc ;)

    But Gala Handicap is a thing now! It’s like a debuff and we wear it proudly!

    ”Yeah, we killed that shit - ofc we had Gala active, has to be a challenge!”

    Just like if we had, say, some lunatic in a cat suit, eating boss abilities because he used to tank 10+ years ago :)
