25 DS Gold Bid(gdkp) Starting Heroics

90 Troll Shaman
Cataclysm has been out for a while and its time to start gearing up alts!! The raid leader Ogian has experience up to 13/13 Heroic 25 man in Tier 11 and 7/7 Heroic 25 man Tier 12 and 8/8 Heroic 25 man in the the current content, so leading a run for normal modes will be quite easy. (possible heroics in future weeks)

For those are are already familiar with the system, welcome back. For those new to the system, welcome. These runs have been very sucessful throughout Burning Crusade and WoTLK, clearing Kara, Mag's, Gruul's, TK, SSC, Hyjal, BT, Funwell, Naxx, most of Ulduar, ToC, 11/12 Heroic ICC and full T11/12 on 25 man settings. The time has come to make the push further though cataclysm's content.

Why 25 man and gold bid?
-No more losing rolls to someone doing half your dps/hps
-Gold for raiding . WIN
-More valor points
-More loot
-More challenging
-More players
-More fun

-Proper enchants/gems/reforging/etc
-Slight knowledge of every encounter in current content
-Average gear level of 378 or higher(I will use my discretion for this)
-Willingness to go outside of a normal comfort zone to get the job done

Time and Day:
-7:00-11:00pm EST (server time)
-invites start @ 6:30-6:45 (sooner we fill, sooner we start)

Breaks & Afk's:
- One 10-15 min break @ 2hr into the run
-Afk's are NOT tolerated(we are not wasting 24 others time by afk's, obvious
exceptions can be made e.g. my kid fell and hit his or her head etc)

How do you get an invite?
-Post with your character in this thread.
-Send in game mail to character named Ogian. (with class/spec)
-If there are alt codes in your toons name you will have to post in this thread. (not going to track down your characters because you did not choose a normal name)

-starting bid 500g
-incriments in 500's i.e. 500, 1000, 1500, 2000.
-you bid and win, you buy no exceptions. If you are bidding someone else up and get stuck with it, buy it or else you will be removed with no share of the pot.
-anything can be bid on by anyone

Legendary Daggers!!
-The first set will be reserved. After that they are up for grabs to anyone who reserves them or wants to pay for them. Not set in stone just yet.

Raid Comp

This is merely an old format I copied from an old thread of mine. The roster is yet to be determined and will be filled in a somewhat similar fashion. There may be more than just one of certain class/specs listed.

Roster:(slots with a class/spec typed are filled. open slots are typed "open slot")
1 Tank-Paladin_____________________16 Dps-Priest
2 Tank-Warrior___________________17 Dps-Druid(Balance)
3 Dps-Death Knight________________18 Dps-Warlock
4 Dps-Paladin____________________19 Dps-Mage
5 Dps-Open_____________________20 Dps-Shaman(Elemental)

6 Dps-Rogue_____________________21 Healer-Shaman
7 Dps-Rogue_____________________22 Healer-Druid
8 Dps-Shaman(enhance)___________23 Healer-Priest
9 Dps-Warrior____________________24 Healer-Open
10 Open slot______________________25 Healer-Paladin

11 Dps-Hunter_____________________Waitlist/Alternates
12 Dps-Hunter
13 Dps-Priest
14 Open slot
15 Healer-Paladin

Empty slots in roster:(needs are subject to change so ask for a slot even if it is closed)
- ranged(healing offspec/gear are a plus)
- melee(tanking offspec/gear are a plus)

Slots vary from week to week as this is just a pug raid, so any class/spec is welcome to join the raid. Many people will be swapping toons for gear on different characters from week to week so anyone and everyone is encouraged to sign up.

Consistency is a key factor to having a sucessful run. Players that are constantly afk, have to leave early, are not performing up to expectations, or are just a general annoyance, will not be invited back. (Also at my discretion, can always make exceptions)

-25 slots are available per raid so not everyone will be able to get into the group every
week. However, if someone has to leave, disconnects, goes afk, or is booted, then
another may be brought in to recieve a FULL cut of the pot. (depending on group, we have been known to just finish with 20-24 and split the gold amongst less people)

-any further questions comments or concerns will be adressed in game via in game mail
or by whispering Ogien/Ogian/Ogiun.

On behalf of OGpugs and Ogian, we want to thank you all for reading this post and wish everyone a wonderful gaming experience.

DISCLAIMER: (aka small print) I am reserving the right to kick a players that are not bidding on items that are upgrades or are passing early and complaining that items are "too expensive". If someone is a liability to the raid they will not receive compensation. I rarely ever will resort to this and do not enjoy doing it,.

There will be a Prot pally already, so i would like to have a different class for the other tank, however you may still be able to come. If you have another alt as well that would be ok.
