Now that the second part of Dragon’s Soul is on the Raid Finder in WoW, it would appear that Raid Finding Madness is in full progress. From a trickle, to a steady flow last week, the commentary, insight, and sarcasm about the Raid Finder has now reached a full flood.
So, if you’re out there Finding Raids (as opposed to “Finding @_Rades”, which would be something else), here’s a selection of amusement, consideration, and advice for you today!
- Matticus at World of Matticus enumerates 11 Raid Finder personalities you’ll never escape – “CAPSLOCK CAROL: HER KEYBOARD WAS BROKEN AT AN EARLY AGE. DOESN’T MATTER SINCE SHE DOESN’T THINK IT’S RUDE TO TYPE IN ALL CAPITALS BECAUSE SHE BELIEVES IT’LL DRAW ATTENTION TO WHAT SHE’S TRYING TO COMMUNICATE. SHE’S ALSO KIND OF DENSE. “
- The Grumpy Elf goes nonlinear with a fascinating stream-of-conciousness on LFR – “If they are not going to fix the loot problem, there is no reason to pug … They should give tanks a ready check option, even if they were not assigned leader … The leader never does a ready check and then asks, what are we waiting for? … Well, I can’t do a ready check so you do it and let me know when I can pull.”
- Tzufit at Tree Heals Go Whoosh has a fascinating piece up asking whether the Raid Finder will cause a nasty case of cognitive dissonance in future raiders – “Does Raid Finder give people a good sense of what raiding is like? Absolutely not. In fact, some part of me is worried about the effect Raid Finder will have on my guild’s recruitment from here on out, because I worry that our less experienced applicants may assume that raiding with a guild is like what they’ve done on Raid Finder.”
- And Rank 4 Healing Touch concludes the day with some great tips for making sure that your fellow PUGers do it, you know, kind of right – “The fights in Fall of Deathwing aren’t really so bad on the whole but what I’ve found helpful is a whole array of handy ‘raid warning’ macros that I drag onto my bar prior to every fight.”
Have you been Raid Findin’ on the weekend? How was it?
