So You Want To Learn To Raid

New/Returning Player Questions & Guides
I don't know where to put this thread but I'm new to the EU but not to WoW.


This Is For The Players Who Want To Raid But Cant Because Reasons

If you are someone who wants to try this raiding thing but gets turned off by the vocal minority of Raiders in this game, then this thread is for you.

If you are someone who just wants to raid in a low-pressure group that cares more about killing bosses and having a good time, then this thread is for you.

If you are someone who wants to LEARN to raid without being berated for low dps, low awareness, etc., then this thread is for you.

If you are someone who is afraid to joining something big, I can make a the right raid size just for you, due to the Flexible Raid System (thank you Ion Hazzikosta and Greg Street), Raids scale to any Group Size, then this thread is for you.


Raiding Guide and my Raiding Schedule on Both Factions (Note: if my schedule is unavailable to you, there are ton more to be found on Openraid. A place for Organized Raiding.

This is for beginners, players with disabilities, and anyone else who wants to help people get into raiding and move past LFR.

Food for Thought:

"The more you give, the more you will get back."

"People think about the Past and they throw their power into the Past, but there is no Past. It's gone, when you think about the Past, you think about it in this Moment. This Moment is all there is, and you can be happy in this Moment. When you are, everything is taken care of. All is well."

This thread is for Openraid because the people on Openraid represent the last bastion of any good left in this community.

If I ever stop running these, you can still find good groups to join. There will always be Openraid though, so if I dont have an events running currently, sign up for other leader's events.

Notes:
Great initiative!

Happy to see you putting in the effort to introduce players to raiding. Going to send you a message on OpenRaid, might join some of your horde-side raids to help out from time to time.
This is exactly what I'm looking for!!

I'm afraid to raid because of low gear and I've pretty much solo'd my way to 100 and would really love to get into the more social aspect of this game!

it's a website people use to organise various events. sadly it isn't nearly as active as it was during mists of pandaria, which is a shame because it used to be really good, but it's not completely dead.

you're gonna need a good bit more gear before you're "raid ready". looks like you've just made it to level 100.
Its gonna take some time to start current raiding but as soon as i hit level 100, im gonna start these learn2raid events on highmaul then blackrock foundry then hellfire castle.

Openraid is very active if you know where to look. I've been using it since Cata.

You are wrong. This is the right place. This helps new players get into raiding.
