Topic LFG to raid heroics
Some advice on finding heroic raids in general:
In general, on this server, there are very few pug raids that are capable of heroic bosses. Even if there were, the likely scenario is that a raid is missing a member at the last minute and are looking to find a replacement in trade chat, not the forums. These forums are more useful towards long term raid positions, ie. guild searches. For that, you should try any of the various recruitment threads in this forum or the official LFG forum, or check wowprogress.
Some advice on getting into heroic raids/guilds:
Heroic bosses are significantly more difficult than LFR. Players are expected, not only to have LFR experience and know what to do, but to execute mechanics as flawlessly as possible while keeping up their dps/healing/tanking basics. As a pure dps class, you have very little utility so the only thing that distinguishes you from other warlocks are your dps numbers (and how often you drop healthstones/soulstones). Do you have recount/skada or use world of logs? If not, you need to get them (yes, addon + logging) asap. If so, my rough rule of thumb for potential damage you can do in a 25m raid (eg LFR) is:
At ilvl 470, you should do ~80k dps on a patchwerk fight.
For every ilvl above 470, you should do ~1.5k more dps.
Thus, looking at your ilvl of 483, you should be doing around 100k dps on Garajal. Different mechanics and luck on various other fights will change this number (I'd expect say, 180k on Elegon but LFR rarely ever kills enough waves of sparks, so w/e), but Garjal's a nice static tank & spank.
Looking at your gear and spec, you're not coming close to your potential. I'd advise you to read guides - google warlock 5.1 guide - and get to understand your class before you try to get into heroic raids as well. A cursory examination of your armory (and I don't play a warlock):
1.) Destro is the weakest spec this tier. Don't like affliction? then heroic guilds won't like you.
2.) Understand your secondary ratings and how to gem. You're almost 2% over the hit cap, and you're putting the wrong gems in 5 of 8 sockets. You also don't have a gem in a socket.
3.) Heroic guilds want to see effort put into your character. In the absence of personal testimony (you knowing someone in the guild), you'd better be fully prepared to raid. I see that you can get 3-4 more valor items, and significantly many more valor upgrades than you currently have. Yes it's a pain to cap valor every week, but if you don't put in the effort there, how can a random guild expect you to put in the effort into raiding?
Once you feel you are sufficiently educated about your class, feel that you would not be a hindrance but rather a boon to a raiding guild/group, then you should write up a nice application. Remember, when you're apping to a heroic guild, you attitude shouldn't be "Hi, I'm new here but I'm eager to learn so teach me the ropes and I'll be a great raider one day", but rather: "I think I'm as good or better than your current raiders. You need me, and I can prove it."
Good luck in your search.
PS: the guy above me mentioned openraids - cross realm raiding is available only for non-current content, so right now, you can only do cataclysm or earlier content with people from another server. In a week or three, 5.2 will drop and you'll be able to try out the current heroics with cross server people. Despite enemy bosses getting nerfed in both hp and damage, you'll still be expected to perform far, far higher than what is necessary in LFR to prevent getting the boot.
You know, that never even clicked with me when searching through there.
As someone else has stated, when 5.2 hits openraid.us will be fairly beneficial to you. That way if your guild isn't doing regular modes, you can get to openraid to find some groups. Also, and I'm not sure if he was trying to be rude and I don't think that he was, but more trying to give you a heads up of how a heroic guild will act or expect from you. If you are completely serious about wanting to raid heroic content, I encourage you to maybe check out askmrrobot or wowreforge. They can give you a idea of what gems to get and what to reforge, and even what gear is best in slot for your class.
I love to raid also and I've been in some top guilds in the past. Just remember this, when you start to take raiding very seriously, it becomes somewhat of a chore or job. Sometimes people say they want to raid hardcore, then once they get into that environment figure out that it isn't for them. Now, I don't know a thing about warlocks, but I can be almost certain that gemming straight hit is of no value to you. Maybe look into other gem choices. When you go to apply to a high end raid guild, they're going to look at all your gem, enchant, reforge and gear choices and take all of that into account. If they feel (and believe me they will judge you) that you're making choices that they feel is incorrect, they will tell you about it and might not be so kind about it.
Now, what I think you should do and what you're actually ready for is to find yourself a guild that is on your level. There are a lot of guilds out there doing normal raids, and I think that's what you're ready for. There is a large step from LFR to normal modes, and I can only imagine the difference between LFR and heroic. Just remember this, being a part of a guild means you're there to help the guild as a whole. It's not really about what they can help you achieve, but what you can help them do. A guild can pick up on whether or not you're just there to get gear and then leave once you get what you want from them.
Please, don't take my words like I'm being a jerk. You came to the forums for help and we're giving it to you. Just may not be the help you were expecting or wanting.
