Do You Want to Raid (Operations)?
« on: January 30, 2012, 05:32:43 PM »
Now that a few of us have hit the big 50, I thought it might be an idea to take a quick poll on who would be up for 8 or 16 man Operations.

So, if you're 50, or nearly there, and are interested in raiding, let me know here, with what class and spec your are also. Then it'll give me some idea of future group make-ups, etc.

*Update*

More of us seem to have hit 50 now, so here's a list of who's there, with their AC/spec if known. If I don't have  your details in the following list, let me know by way of reply:

Caol - Jedi Shadow - DPS
Caradir - Gunslinger - DPS
Ciceron - Jedi Sage - DPS
Clostridium - Vanguard - Tank
Damien - Jedi Sentinel - DPS (not seen Damien on in a while)
Fawcett - Vanguard - DPS/Offtank (my alt)
Kahler - Jedi Guardian - Tank
Kannonnen - Commando - Healer
Kurtt - Jedi Guardian - Tank (me)
Temon - Jedi Sage - Healer
Thaneydar - Gunslinger - DPS
Twinkletoes - Vanguard - Tank
Yyan - Jedi Shadow - Tank

*Update 2*

So I've been looking into Ops group composition, and it seems the ideal/optimum group composition is as follows:

2x Tanks (1 Melee, 1 Ranged)
2x Healers (At least one Sage)
4x DPS (3 Ranged, 1 Melee)

Now, looking at the above list of 50's, I reckon we could probably put together a decent 8 man ops group based on the above.

*Update 3*

First (and hardest) boss of the Eternity Vault:

SWTOR Guide | Annihilation Droid XRR-3 | Eternity Vault Operation Boss #1 | 8man HM & Normal

Cheers,

Dan

I'd like to experience the operations once or twice a week and get together with folks on a regular basis. I'm not an experienced raider at all. So what would your description of raiding in this game be like?

I personally do value the friendly and casual aspect of the game and guild... so yes to showing up on time and teamwork and all that, but no to elitist shit. And in my completely personal opinion, some of the people and stuff that ended up in a certain spin off guild of HoJ in WoW would fall into the elitist shit category. It's a game. It's pixels. There's always a next run, attempt and day. That's my stance. On the other hand I'm all for enforcing voice comms and setting clear rules and stuff.

Twinkletoes is a Trooper Vanguard with a cookie cutter tanking spec. Mainly for single player reasons really. I enjoy having a good life expectancy.
I'm not the best tank ever in groups, but I'm willing to learn if others are patient enough to teach.

That's the general idea Goaty. We've always taken that approach to raids in HoJ and later on in THF.

Turn up on time, know what you need to do to a reasonable degree, and then have some fun.

However, take away from them the power to create money and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in.

Aloha! Kahler soon signing for lvl 50 raiding. Im a Jedi guardian whom is currently tank specced and will have the specc of 18 Def / 23 Vig when I hit 50, wich is about 1,5 lvls away. I have never raided as a tank before but would find it interesting to try out. I can also reconsider respeccing DPS if that is more suitable for the raid, as we seem to have alot of tanks ;)

Do we really have that many tanks? During the boss bashing it seemed like we only had 1 or 2 on 6-10.

I'll be up for it. Got 2 tanks on the go, seeing as tanking is waaaaaay less stressful than it is in WoW then I'll be there. Eventually, sometime. If I'm not distracted by ponies or shiny things or a new character.
