You should follow the link or check the forum for the article and read it, particularly if you are looking for specific items or events. The big change is that Challenge Mode dungeons and their rewards are going away. Your officers discussed what we wanted to accomplish before the patch dropped and CM's were the top priority. We recognize this only appeals to a small group of people, but we've done a push like this before. Herald of the Titans, for example, was for a small group.
In an effort to get silver medals for people wanting CM's and to get the guild achievement, we will start running CM's every other day beginning next Monday night. The schedule here and in-game and on Facebook reflect what we plan to do between now and October 4th. In order to come along, you need to know how your gear works by going to The Proving Grounds and taking it for a spin. Your hit and expertise, once capped, don't change, but you may have to monkey around with reforging in order to get yourself capped in both. I strongly recommend, if you're going to do this, you have a gear set just for challenge mode. That way, you can reforge directly into what you feel is needed with how you play and how CM's work without messing with your raiding gear set.
Next, you should spend this weekend watching all the videos to get familiar with the strats for conquering CM's to get gold. Be mindful that we're SD and when they say "zig", we might find it better to "zag". But, the more information you have, even going so far as to take notes you can have next to the computer, the faster the group can be.
We need more invisibility potions. Since Insider posted their series to win at CM's, ghost mushroom prices have gone through the roof. We need ghost mushrooms and sungrass. If you can make any pots or can donate the raw materials, please put them on the first tab.
If you are interested in CM's, know that on those days we run them, we are only spending 90 minutes doing this. This is stressful and if we struggle to learn a dungeon, we could be in one for over 2 hours. That's too long. We'll give this a try in our inimitable style, but we're not going to bang our heads against a wall. If we are successful with one dungeon within that time frame, we'll move on to another.
We have more dps interested, currently, than tanks and healers. So, if you have a medal in one dungeon, please be willing to sit one out so others can get that medal. Our goal, again, is silver, so we can get the mounts. If we get gold, wonderful, but silver will give us more breathing room for "Hold my beer and watch this".
There's a lot of information contained in that article. Take a few moments and read through it. Also please check the schedule. We will assess CM's on September 12th and decide if we will continue the push or if it's not something we can, realistically, do.
