Kenny.5826 Posted October 12, 2017 Share Posted October 12, 2017 Heya,Quite a few have complained that starting a raid can be difficult as the first place to look is in LFG and sees everyone asks for a certain number of Legendary Insight(LI). Then comes the catch 22. Need LI to join the group to kill bosses and get LI. This is a problem for new players as to them it feels that you need LI to get LI.Now this is where some people claim that the community is becoming more elitist or inaccessible. However a few things to note, LFG is not intended for new raiders who have very little to no experience (exceptions to training runs) even tho it may look like it. This is because the majority of the players that are on LFG are looking for kills and not train/carry new players. Undoubtedly those with less experience overall will be less mechanically inefficient and lower dps or quickness/alacrity up time than those with more experience. There are always exceptions but again people in LFG are looking for quick kills. LI by no means is a measure for skill but it is an adequate measure for experience.So to new players,The main take away is if you are new to raiding and using LFG to start, it will feel inaccessible because it is by large inaccessible. LFG is usually for those with more experienceSo how to get started? I'd recommend you find a guild that does training runs. You can find them from most efficient to least inefficient method: reddit guild recruitment sub reddit; Creating a group on raid LFG and advertise yourself for a training guild and finally using map chat in the lions arch aerodrome. Or if you are in EU, I have a friend who runs training and you can pop me a mail.(Do note that there are some requirements not related to boss mainly gear and rotation: Further information down below.New players: A list of what you should do to make your raiding life easier.Go to search qtfy on Google. There is a wealth of information on each class and the builds and rotation that you should know to be a much more efficient raider.Learn and practice your rotation in the practice room. Rotations are certain order of actions or priority in skills in which to bring out more effectiveness of your class. (More information down below)Full acended may be expensive but trust me, it makes a huge difference.So why should you do all that?It's not elitism for the most part. It is to make the raiding experience smoother. Example a guardian without the proper build and rotation might only do 1/3 of the damage that a well trained guardian might. And if there are 4 well trained damage dealers vs non well trained you can see why it is important.Why is higher damage important?The quicker you kill a boss the less mechanics you have to deal with Which means a smoother clean kill. For an example look at YouTube for gorseval with updraft and gorsaval without updraft.So in conclusion, asking for LI isn't all to do with elitism, some people might but others are not. Some just wants a quick kill and with higher LI has a higher chance of players who know their class and boss mechanics better so more chance of a kill or a smoother kill.A deadly raid squad is a happy raid squad!Good luck.KennyN.B As always on the internet take everything with a grain of salt. I like many others clear weekly and have wildly different perspectives to new raiders which might have cause bias. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
