Duane: not raiding?Me: No, cant get a team capable of taking down MegaeraDuane: now kids back at school im capable of being here more now gearing up dk atm bored of hunterMe: How long before you’re bored of that?Duane: wont be I get the impression tht u guys are not my greatest fans?
Me: It is not that but you have a history of changing your mind, getting bored with toons and when joining raids disappearing mid way through when we raid we need someone we can depend on to turn up, do a good job and not keep other people waiting aroundDuane: only wen kids on holidays its hard for me to find time u must understand tht. but normally all i need is 2 mins at 8:30 to put kids to bed and thts it, u will see i will prove myselfMe: That I understand completely, but as a raid leader I can’t be pissing 8 people off to accommodate 1 persons RL needsDuane: true tht but 2 mins at 8:30 is all i will need ever, i have alot more time play with intference nowMe: But if that is in the middle of a rid that isn’t good enoughDuane: so u wont accept 2 mins at 8:30 to put my kids to bed? so im really not gonna get a chance to raid here really then?Me: No, because it interupts the flow of a raid we have a scheduled raid break at 2130 UK if you’re wanting a break before that we would have to take a break 30 mins in to the raid. We have a set raid time because it fits the lifestyle of most guild members, many like myself are here because of that. Sadly we cannot make things fit for everyoneDuane: totally cool, I messed it up for myself really
Then today Duane#2, a recent recruit to Exhumed who has signed up for a few RBGs and a raid once (if my memory serves me right. /w me and the conversation was:
Duane: what is the min ilvl for the 2nd raid team? really need to start gearing upMe: With Siege coming this weekit is 520ishDuane: for 2nd team?Me: Well 1st and 2nd team will be doing same content so ilevel is the sameDuane: im sitting on 480 and no more drops from lfr but i cant get that from LFR apparently, been looking on boss lootsMe: You could have been signing up for the Sun/Mon runs and spending your valor on the 522 gear from the rep vendorsDuane: i have been but dont have enough valor atm for another peiceMe: You have not signed for many runs otherwise as a healer you would have got in the teamDuane: i have been and for pvp BG’s also been on the website alotMe: And if you valor capped each week and had been running 4x ToT lfr you would have better than 480 ilevelDuane: im unlucky with drops if they drop at all,i have [Contender’s Wyrmhide Leggings]+ [Hurricane Belt]+2x trinkets pulling my ilvl down thats all
Me: You have killed Jonrokh x1, Horridonx1 and Councilx2 in ToT lfr on Duane. That means you have not tried to gear upDuane: hmmmm, deffo run more LFR than thatMe: with only 4 boss kills you cant claim to be unluckyDuane: iv deffo ran LFR more times than that, im missing some achi also that i should have from running all the bosses in LFR, I’ll run LFR this week, the reset is tomorrowMe: Well you’ll still be a long way off the min level. We’ll probably run a flex raid Monday that you could joinDuane: okMe: Ideally you’d need to be close to 500 but depending on who signs it won’t be a major problem if you’re a bit underDuane: i will try and gear as much as i canMe: and sign up for the raids on the calendar, you should also gem and enchant your gearDuane: i am working on it, my JC is 600 but my enchant is 450+Me: You’re not working on it, nothing is gemmed or enachantedDuane: so im working on itMe: The AH has all the stuff and there are JC and enchanters in the guild that will do the enchants and cuts for free if you give them the matsDuane: Duane is busy fighting against Looking For Raid – Megaera (100%, 25/25 people alive)
