Update: I am no longer a part of this project, but i will provide a link to the website once it is available. It has been rebranded as GW2 Raiding Academy.
Hey all, Swifty here (no, not THAT Swifty...)
New forum up so I wanted to remind everyone who is either new to raiding, a returning player looking to learn the newer wings, or even experienced players who are looking for more "Full Clear" capable players, we have a place for you in [GW2 Raid Training] .
We are a discord server purely dedicated to helping players learn how to raid, funneling players into various "Tiers" which explain their experience with sets of bosses roughly lumped into a progressive difficulty system. We focus on on helping players learn the mechanics and improve their builds, rotations, and overall game knowledge, while also showing them how to easily gear out alts. We promote players having multiple characters with distinct roles so, as they grow in their experience with raids, they can be role-flexible if compositions need to change.
Any player who is capable of completing every encounter in the game is at Tier 4, and has been "role checked" to ensure they can achieve a bare minimum of 25k DPS with their builds in realistic raid buff settings, and ideally will never, ever cause you to lose an encounter to mechanic errors or "low performance" of their role. This is important for anyone interested in finding others to form a "lose static" essentially, as anyone in Tier 4 should be able to swap into your groups with minimal issues.
I hope we can continue to grow with our awesome community of like-minded raiders. As of this post, we have over 1850 members who have logged in within the last 30 days, and we have a formal intake process that will help us continue to grow if the community demand continues to swell. As such, we are also always looking for more trainers to help run our training runs, particularly at the entry Tier 1 and Tier 2 level where the highest need exists for a bunch of new raiders!
Thank you all for your time and see you in game,
