For Shadowlands we are running 3 dedicated raid teams that offer a variety of atmospheres, from hardcore to semi-hardcore.
Raid Force One – Tues/Wed at 7:30PM-10:30PM CST
(6hrs) This is a CE team dedicated to pushing as hard as possible. Raiders on this team are required to be at the top of their game and compete for spots throughout progression. In addition to the Tues/Wed raid nights, Raid Force One farms heroic during the week. You are not required to attend these off-raid nights.
Sloppy Seconds – Tues/Sun at 8:00PM-11:00PM CST
(6hrs) This semi-hardcore group has evolved since the beginning of Battle for Azeroth. They started BFA as a 1-day heroic raiding team, but switched to a 2-day mythic raiding team in the last tier, Ny’alotha. They ended progression at 11/12M! Overall, they’ve seen a lot of growth and had an amazing BFA expansion. SS will be pushing CE in Shadowlands. You can see their current progression on their team page.
Prestige Worldwide – Weds/Thurs at 7:00PM-11:00PM CST
(8hrs) This hardcore progression group meets for longer periods of time per week than the other teams. They have a strong team and community foundation so they can provide Cutting Edge to all of their core raid team members when the time comes. It’s important that all teammates remain motivated and willing to work as a unit as the expansion moves forward.
Trial Periods: Teams self manage their trial lengths and these may be characterized by farm content versus extended progression. Typically though, a trial period can last 1-2 weeks. One can expect it to be much shorter during extended progression. You will be contacted by the raid leader or a team officer whether you have passed your trial.
Raider Requirements: We require every raider, even on our optional nights, to have the knowledge required to both perform their class mechanics as well as execute the boss fights as needed. We understand people make mistakes but we do not tolerate repeated failures or toxicity. We expect our mythic raiders to be a high enough item level and have a thorough understanding of the current raid tier.
Required Add-ons: Before expecting to join our raid teams you should be familiar with these add-ons. They are required on your first night and all future nights of raiding:
- Angry Assignments
- DeadlyBossMods, BigWigs, or an equivalent
- SimulationCraft and Raidbots experience
- Weak Auras
