I see lot of messages here on forums and other websites about how hard it is to get into raiding, i am long time raider my self but i wanted to check is it really that difficult to get your first raid kill.
So i hide my mini and my title, after that i posted an raid to LFG without commander tag. My LFG title was "need help with vale guardian boss."
It was little less than 10 minutes untill some1 with the tag joined, take command of the squad and posted a proper LFG. He also messaged me and explained the key mechanics of the encounter.
I guess every1 understood my point already, its not hard to get into raiding and this was an extreme example. If i would have posted an 0 LI "know mechanics run" with proper squad composition by my self, i would have Squad up even faster i think.
Oh final thing, it took 3 tries to kill VG with this group.
Edit: Two other experiments from today.
Posted slothasor run on LFG as an commander "w2 slothasor know mechanics X rolesX" Again i asked zero LI 3 ppl who joined pinged some stuff, other just Said hi and their role. This time Squad got filled super fast, run was very messy 1.5 laps on arena, but it was a kill after few tries.
Other experiment was when i posted an LFG " Raid noob looking for training." In very short time i got asked to join in 3 different raid training guilds. However i told all of them that im doing an experiment, and that i can however point few of my ingame friends to their guilds (which i did).
Edit: another Vale Guardian. I was the one who created the squad. LFG "VG need commander list of needed roles". Players joined one by one, some pinged stuff and some didn't, last role that we were missing was a cdps. Another new player joined and asked If its ok to join without KP, he told that he has seen videos and knows mechanics, every1 was ok with that. We failed at the start coz i was healing and had a dc. After i came Back we killed vale guardian on our second try, fight was pretty smooth. Some1 took command of the Squad, bs If i recall right.
I'll have two number 9s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese, and a large soda.
