Stratholme Fire Department
SFD Raid Team
Stratholme Fire Department (SDF) is a 10-man progression raid team revived 01.25.11 after a 6 month hiatus. We're back, and we're ready to take on Cataclysm for AIE Diginatas.
|Armory||Now Recruiting !!|
- Exaltd (Druid/Bear)
We run Thursdays and Sundays from 9 pm server until 12 am server.
We have completed up to Nefarion in Blackwing Descent, and are kicking things up in Bastion of Twilight.
Now that our runs are less pugs and we have a semblance of a full group we will be implementing a few policies to make things more clear on what is expected of you and requirements for those who want to remain members of the team.
Attendance: First and foremost all raid members and reserve players will receive invites at least a week prior to the next raid. Full members are required to give a response to calender invites before the raid. If you are on to be invited to raid and you have not checked 'accepted' on your calender invite then you may or may not have a spot waiting for you. All team members are required to give some notice at least an hour before raid time as to whether or not they will be attending. Those who do not give any sort of notification whether it be on the forums, in game mail, text message or cell phone call and do not show up for raid immediately will lose their spot as a full team member and be moved to standby status. We have other people that want to join the group and are more than willing to show up on time or provide notice. All changes in status of course are up to the discretion of the team leaders. Unless prior notice is given everyone should be online at least 10 minutes prior to raid and ready for invites, which means if your in a group you need to drop it around 10 minutes prior to raid start.
Loot: Loot is loot council and up to the discretion of the team leader. For the most part loot is open rolls for main spec and then open roll for off spec, if no one wants it then it will be sharded and Camio(The team enchanter) will buy reciples/or do enchants for raid members at a discount. If two people need an item and it's BiS for someone and about 10 spots down for someone else then we are going to make sure it goes to whoever it's best for, the rolls are for those whom it's about an equal upgrade. For the most part spirit is a healer stat except for a few rare exceptions, hit is a dps stat so please try to let those rules guide you if your not sure if it's an upgrade. I do not want us to just automatically give certain pieces of loot to someone because they have been waiting a long time but once again if it's BiS for someone by quite a bit they will get preference on it.
Boe's: Boe's will first go to open rolls for Main Spec upgrades only. Not oh I could use that sword on my combat spec that I never use..etc. If no one can use the Boe as an upgrade and immediately equip it then it will go to open rolls. Boe's will be saved till the end of the raid night and rolled on then that way anyone that pugs will have to wait till the end if they want a roll.
Raid/Roles and Communication:
Open mics/talking is permitted for most of the time in raid chat except during boss fights. Communication during boss fights will be limited to raid leader, assistant raid leader, tanks, and lead healer. If you are not one of these things or have not been asked to communicate during the raid then don't say anything. Obviously if you have something wrong with YOUR character and you need help then go ahead, if someone else is screwing up then leave it to the raid leads. I welcome whispers etc about such thing but lets try to keep communication at a minimum during boss fights. We are all guilty of it but when in the middle of a boss fight even if your a leader try to keep communication to only what is relevant at the moment, talking about Camio's mom should be saved for after the fight.
We have no required raid mods, but we strongly encourage Deadly Boss Mods.
