Raiding is serious business. Everybody involved in one wants to complete it. Because of that, it may be hard for beginners to start raiding. A raid’s success hinges on the performance of all the team members. If any one of them comes unprepared or ignorant, the chances of completing the WoW dungeons by level may fall with the tenacity of a boulder rolling off a cliff.
To stop that from happening, here’s what you need for WoW raids. With these pointers, you’ll be able to participate in any raid and get all the sweet WoW Classic gold and items you want.
World of Warcraft Classic Knowledge
WoW Raids are full of deadly traps and what’s more, the boss’s attacks hit particularly hard. Fortunately, you can study both. By doing so, you’ll be able to move to safe spaces or use your skills properly. If you can keep yourself alive for the most part, healers can focus on the tanks. The tanks can keep damage off the damagers, letting them do their work. As a whole, this lets the team run strategies smoothly.
More than that, you’ll need knowledge of what your class can do. Figure out a way to maximize your skills and its cool downs, then combine this with your knowledge of the enemy’s attacks to defend and counter attack accordingly. Being competent with your class goes a long way for your team’s success.
Food, Potions, and Consumables
You should bring food, potions, and elixirs to the raid. Your WoW Classic class and role determine which ones you need. As for food, guilds usually provide them for members but PUGs don’t so bring along what you need for those and of course don’t forget your health potions as well. They can be lifesavers when you’re in a pinch and when the healers are busy.
Bring what will make you perform better at your role. If you’re a magic class, bring potions and food that enhances intelligence and magic damage, for example. Knowledge ties in here, because how would you know what to bring if you don’t know what will benefit you?
WoW of Warcraft Classic Gear
Sure, you want to raid to get that sweet gear, however that doesn’t mean you should skimp out on the ones you’re starting with. If it’s your first time to raid, make sure you equip yourself with the best equipment you can possibly acquire.
For one, it will help you be a valuable contributor to either the damage-dealing or healing of the group. Some addons keep track of the damage and healing you do, so that can be a key indicator of your performance as a member. Another reason to go all-out on your first time raiding gear is survivability. Weaker equipment makes you easier to kill and someone who dies too often is naturally a liability to the team. Generally, under-geared players won’t contribute as much as properly geared ones. Make sure you enchant everything you can, even if you plan on replacing them afterward.
You might be a good player, but if your attitude rubs everybody else the wrong way, nobody will want you to be a part of their group.
Be calm and polite. When things are going wrong, don’t shout or point fingers. Morale plummets if screaming starts, mistakes are normal, we are all people anyway. Own up to them if it was your fault, and don’t start blaming the others. If you really need to correct behavior, phrase them as suggestions, but in the event that the behavior still persists, have your raid leader kick the culprit. Also, as a courtesy to the others in your team, be ready to go at the assigned spot earlier than the arranged time. When you can’t be there, let them know ahead of time.
Be humble. There will always be someone better than you. Once you accept that fact, you’ll be able to take correction without feeling offended. Sure, they could be wrong, but you don’t have to disregard the advice angrily. In those situations, there aren’t any right or wrong answers, just different perspectives. Don’t let your pride keep you from growing as a player!
Be cooperative. You’ll never get through WoW raids alone so follow your leader’s instructions, and don’t Leeroy Jenkins your way through the WoW dungeons. That will undoubtedly earn your team’s ire and get you inevitably kicked. Save yourself the trouble and follow. If you really disagree, you can do so, provided you follow the above guidelines.
It all boils down to your knowledge, attitude, and teamwork. Having the proper items and gear only sweetens the deal. You can make mistakes during the raid, and you’ll still get accepted if you let yourself be teachable. Keep all of these pointers in mind, and you’ll be successfully raiding in no time!
Go grab the opportunity for awesome loot and WoW Classic gold! As always, continue enjoying World of Warcraft Classic.
