Curious as to the plan for raiding in Legion. What level of difficulty is planned for release of the raid patches?

Will we push right into Heroics, then Mythics?

Will we go Normal>Heroics>Mythics?

I think if we can keep a solid core group, there is no reason to mess with normal. We should dive right into Heroics.

Thoughts?

I'm excited to be with a good core guild group diving right into raids when they come out. It's nice to be with/ahead of the times instead of trying to catch up.

It will also be awesome to have new content!

As far as skipping normal? I have no idea. I didn't know people did that.

Hey! I'm glad you brought that up. I have to agree that we're a solid enough group to drive directly into heroics. But it all depends on how quickly everyone reaches max level and what our raiding needs will be in Legion.

I suspect that we might have half a team the first week raids are available (some folks have more time for leveling than others. i.e. Kali and I will be at PAX immediately after Legion drops). If that is the case, the early-risers might enjoy a week or two of normal with pugs.

Sometimes Heroic is a pain in the but to dive into with only dungeon gear. Depending on how they balance it, we may end up having a heroic night and a normal night for a few weeks.

Either way, I can't wait for the new content and new progression!

I was considering the same Acheron. Maybe a few runs in normal to get some tier sets, and not worry about BiS out of normal.

I'd think with at least a 2 pc set, that would help quite a bit. Being as we have 6 gear slots to choose from, hopefully getting sets is a little quicker.

I haven't looked at the gear from raids yet, so does anyone know if the first raid will even drop sets, like Highmaul?

Okay so what I was thinking is that there will be a decently strong push to be running two maybe even three groups in heroic dungeons once we have the gear to do so. That way everyone gets gear as fast as they can to get right into the raids when they release. As for jumping into heroics? It's really hard to say.

What I will say though is that we WILL have a solid group which is WAY more than what I had in the Highmaul and BRF days. So it's possible to push right into heroics but so much will change the first few weeks as Blizz scrambles to balance things and what not. So as for now I would say "stay tuned" haha. I just recruited Van from The Westfall Brigade (Ed's guild). So that fills another DPS roll possibly a healing role. Now if only I could get those pesky hunters to transfer....and Waterboy to join the guild....

Blizz has released tier models for T19 in Legion, I assume it drops in the initial raids. Honestly, Highmaul NOT having tier was so awful that I can't imagine them pulling that one again.

I am a big fan of always adhering to BiS though. But if an item drops where the BiS rolls are satisfied then we can certainly move on to Better than Current before thinking about OS rolls.

I think splitting up for lots of dungeons to try to run through them faster is a great idea. We definitely have the split in classes between peoples' MS and OS for it.

As far as the hunters, you probably won't have to worry about Keskein realm transferring since she doesn't seem to want to go hunter from the start and will probably start on either druid or warlock


As far as normal/heroic raids go, I definitely think we should start on normal even though we will have our shit together. I think it would be better for our group and for morale if we were able to get through it first to completion on one difficulty (and maybe run tier bosses multiple times for people to get set bonuses) before trying to power through the next one.
