To the left, I have put up a number of polls to gauge your interest in what you want to do before Tarsan leaves and then, while he is gone. We have a number of options. If you'd like to do something that isn't on the poll, please leave a suggestion in the comments. The Noble Garden holiday will occur during this time too. There are multiple polls so click the "Next Poll" at the bottom right of the box to go on to the subsequent one. Thanks for your input.
I'm going to, briefly, go over what our options are. First of all, we should, in the two weeks between now and the 24th, get the raiding achievement as we are at 48/50 raid challenges done. Siege isn't on the schedule for the rest of March. We're working on Throne of Thunder for the guild achievement. I try to leave days open during the week or schedule events that are quick to run so people have time to do their own thing. We have a ToT run scheduled for March 24th. We could be killing Lei-Shen on that date or still trying to get past Durumu. (I hate that boss so much.) We have 2 days open the week of March 17th. I could put a Siege run and move ToT to those days. We also could move the silly event of the 17th to the 24th.
We have raids scheduled for the week of the 24th. Those will stay as intended. Looking ahead to April, we have 2 weeks where Tarsan will be gone completely and one week where he will come back towards the weekend. We could continue with our progressing through Siege, go back to wing 1, or set that aside until he comes back.
Let's assume we don't get Lei Shen down this month. We could continue working through ToT or wait until he comes back. We cannot go backwards on ToT as we will be saving any raid lock out. We could raid other Mists raids, ones we have guild achievements for. We could work on Glory of the [insert name of raid]. Please vote and let me know. Again, remember to page through all the polls. Thanks.
Finally a couple of announcements. We will be doing a quick Herald of the Titans run for a non-guild member on Monday.
Last Monday's run was the fastest ever; 3 minutes 53 seconds. I need 7 people willing to come along and knock this out quickly for this person. We are not getting anything, other than good will, out of taking him along to get his achievement. We officers talked about selling our runs because guilds will do that when they have something hard to get on farm. We feel that is not in the spirit of what we do here, but we will not be doing this again for a long time. This is it. He was supposed to come this past Monday, but got the date and time mixed up. Thank you, in advance, for helping with this. A half hour of your time and you can go back to picking flowers or standing in the Shrine talking.
Finally, the results of the poll about which class will next assault Firelands and Mogu'shan Vaults are in. Calling all Death Knights. You won with 24% of the vote.
Nine Death Knights will accompany Tarsan into Firelands on the 16th. We discovered with hunters, heroic was a piece of cake so we've decided you can start with heroic instead of killing Shannox on regular and then deciding, pffft, we can do this on heroic.
From there, you'll tackle Mogu'shan Vaults. No, you won't be using a healer for either, although if Tarsan wants to bring Hercules in healing spec, that's his option. Let's see if you can be creative and keep yourself alive while downing the boss. If you are interested, please sign up. The next class will be monk in April.
Again, thank you for your assistance in planning what we'll do in the coming weeks while Tarsan is on maneuvers. I greatly appreciate it.
