This is kind of an extenion from a previous post. A recap of the previous post.
1.) Be on time and ready to go. Don’t be Wintergrasp at raid time, don’t be on an alt running an instance etc.
2.) Be prepared with knowledge of fights. If you have a suggestion, don’t hold back if it is a valid suggestion.
3.) Have appropriate addon downloaded and updated.
4.) Come to the fight with needed items as needed.
5.) Listen, absorb, and evolve. Be ready for changes.
6.) Raid with an open mind – be prepared for wipes.
7.) Know your limits – if you are not feeling it, take a night off.
8.) If you sign up show up!!! If you are not sure…mark tentative, please.
9.) If you cannot make it, please advise.
10.) Be spec’d appropriately, gemmed correctly, rotation worked out, glyphed correctly, and enchanted appropriately.
11.) No ninja afking.
Going to focus on points #3 and #10.
Have appropriate addons downloaded and updated.
This is a very important things raiders need to have. Although, I guess you do not really need them. Addon will however, enhance your play and make it easier on you and your raid. (Unless you are fail like me and cannot read…..Liyhe is being targeted by an enchanced fireball!)
Keeping your addon up to date also may help to prevent issues with the program from going “screw you” and crashing/freesing etc.
Another point to this is to understand how your addons work, take for example Dozzer pointed out we may want to tone done on the number of things DMB announces to use. To announce only the big I am going to kill you and your raid abilities (Enhanced shock vortex, enhanced fireball).
Be spec’d appropriately, gemmed correctly, rotation worked out, glyphed correctly, and enchanted appropriately.
This is also important….you get new loot…why the hell wouldnt you want to “pimp” it out. Making sure you have properly “pimped” out your epic lootz will ehance your game and make things easier. Also if you don’t it makes you looks like a scrub. Scrubs get no love in WoW, unless its from other scrubs.
0/0/71 specs ARE NOT acceptable. Just say no!!!
Or an crusader enchant on your Bryntroll, the Bone Arbiter is not cool…
