Raiding with <Battle Hardened>

Those of us within the guild come from varying degrees of experience in raiding. Some have been a part of huge raiding guilds, while others have either lacked a set team or just started playing WoW not that long ago.

As a group, we are focused on moving forward through content and overcoming any obstacle that may be presented to our raid team, regardless of prior experience. Our members are dedicated to assisting each other and tackling bosses together, with an emphasis on everyone giving 110% effort to each and every kill. Simply downing a boss is not enough; we will push ourselves to down the boss with style.

If you're looking to join our raid team casually, you'd be free to join us on the weekends. As you gear up a bit and want to progress into higher content, we can expand your raiding schedule to come with us for the higher tier bosses.

All progression raiders must complete a raid trial before raid spots are guaranteed, regardless of prior experience or iLvl.

Loot System

<Battle Hardened> uses loot council for our mythic raids. The LC is comprised of the officers/veterans. Raiders interested in rolling on a piece of loot will put a number in raid chat after the piece is linked.
1 - Main Spec BiS (both best secondaries, etc)
2 - Main Spec Upgrade (Non-BiS upgrades, sidegrades)
3 - Offspec
4 - Transmog
Loot will then be handed out based on a vote from each of the officers. The Raider with the most vote wins. Keep in mind the Officers look at a lot of things when determining who they vote for, including performance, attendance, gear already won in mythic difficulty, and referenced off the BiS tier/legendary list and spreadsheets compiled from each raider.

For Team 2 we use a MS>OS /roll, based on the same number system we use in Team 1.

Raid Expectations


  • Show up to raid. If you can't make it, let an officer know in advance so we can have a replacement. We have an absence forum specifically to let us know when you cannot make it.
  • Please be online with your flasks/food/etc ready to go when invites go out. Invites will be sent out at 5:50pm server time, so that we are good to start pulling trash at 6pm. If aren't ready to accept the first invite, you risk having to sit out for the night.
  • You must have ALL the required addons (including discord) downloaded and installed to raid with us. Keep them updated regularly.
  • Have your gear gemmed/enchanted before raid time. Mats can/will be provided by the guild. If you get an upgrade during the raid, please wait until break time to gem/enchant it (unless the enchant/gem is pre-made and in your inventory or the mobile guild bank ready to go) so that we don't waste time.
  • Know your spec! This includes knowing your stat priority, what talents to take, and your rotation. If you need help finding any of that information, please ask!
  • Listen to instructions. Raid Leaders are people too, and therefore far from being perfect, but try to follow the strategy given. If you have a question, please ask so that they can clarify before the pull.
  • There will be times that you might see a better solution or strategy that the Raid Leader does not see right away. Instead of talking over everyone and arguing in mumble, please whisper an officer and let them know you have a suggestion. It will help keep mumble clear and reduce confusion throughout the entire group.
  • For progression bosses we will make a forum post for each boss. Strats will be discussed there. If you miss a strat, or we are in the process of changing how we are doing the fight, please check the post prior to raid time so that we don't need to give the entire run-down for one person.
  • On ready check discord needs to be quiet for last-minute instructions.

Normal/Alt Runs


In order to raid normal with us, all the General Raid Requirements plus these are valid:

Info Coming Soon!

Heroic Runs


In order to raid heroic/mythic with us, all the General Raid Requirements plus these are valid:
  • Must have the best enchants/gems/gear in your heroic+ gear for your class/spec (may be provided by guild for main toons only)
  • Must be a member of the guild, on the raid roster, or pre-approved by the raid leader
  • Must have flasks and your own food (feasts may be provided by guild)
  • Must maintain reasonable performance standards, and know the fights from normal mode runs. If you cannot survive a normal mode encounter you may not be ready for heroics yet. We will do everything in our power to help a guild member who is helping themselves to improve, but during the learning phase, normal mode raids are the place to work out performance issues.
  • Those who are unable to follow mechanics or mess up on the same mechanic more than once may be sat if it is a huge detriment to the raid. Healers and tanks, who are unable to be judged solely by raw numbers, must be able to follow the mechanics and use their utility to the best benefit to the raid.

Mythic Runs


In order to raid mythic progression content with us, all General Raid Requirements plus these are valid:
  • Must have the best enchants/gems/gear in your heroic+ gear for your class/spec (may be provided by guild).
  • Must be a member of the guild, on the raid roster, or pre-approved by the raid leader (for trial status)
  • Must have flasks and 375 stat food, provided by the guild (feasts may be provided by guild for learning purposes only)
  • Must maintain reasonable performance standards, and know the fights from heroic mode runs. We will do everything in our power to help a guild member who is helping themselves to improve, but during the learning phase, heroic mode raids are the place to work out performance issues.
  • 200k minimum dps for farm, 250k+ for progression content. Those who are struggling to meet these requirements on a particular fight will be sat if there is a wipe, or sat before the next boss.
  • Those who are unable to follow mechanics or mess up on the same mechanic more than once may be sat if it is a huge detriment to the raid. Healers and tanks, who are unable to be judged solely by raw numbers, must be able to follow the mechanics and use their utility to the best benefit to the raid.
  • Must be able to attend all scheduled mythic runs. Obvious exceptions to our rostered attendance policy are emergencies, and other situations cleared in advance at the discretion of the officers. These absences must be logged on the guild site.
