After reading Matticus’ post about the characteristics of a mature guild member and then the Massively article responding to it, I was reminded of the catch-all phrase that TRI uses for our raiding rules.
Don’t be a dick.
While there are a few explained iterations of this (don’t waste people’s time, don’t be a loot whore, don’t autoshot and watch TV), by and large, whenever someone asks what the basic raid rules of TRI are, there is a very simple, direct answer to that question. Makes things easier.

So Totally Karazhan WTF has completed its third weekend raid, pull to Prince in 3 hours and 3 minutes, due to some… interesting… experiences on the last fight. Namely the misdirect totally not working – see the graphic, hunter pulls, hunter has aggro, dies, wipes raid. Very peculiar.
- Protection Paladin
- Feral Druid
- Holy priest (x2)
- Rogue (x2)
- Enhancement Shaman (yours truly)
- Elemental Shaman (our loot trashcan for the week)
- BM Hunter
Curator in 2:05 (NEW RECORD MATTICUS!), Aran in 2:13, Prince in 5:32 on the final attempt. This week’s loot trashcan was an elemental shaman, so I took up my axe and mace and went to town – just like old times. It was *really weird* to be hitting things. For some reason the mental shift between resto and elemental is not as huge as the mental shift between resto and enhancement, and I was definitely rusty. But it was fun, if a little slower overall than last week, and everyone got 22 badges and some good loot!

So, is it just me, or is it really hard to look at Morogrim Tidewalker and not immediately think “Yarr! It’s drivin’ me nuts!” *
* So a pirate saunters into a bar and sits down to get himself some rum. He’s got a hook on one hand, a wooden leg, and a ships wheel sticking out of the front of his pants. The bartender looks at him curiously and asks “So, what happened to your hand?” “Arrr,” he says, “go’ bit off by a shark!” “Ahh,” said the bartender, “and the wooden leg?” “Arr, lost it in a deck fight – out numbered 4 to 1!” “Impressive,” said the bartender, “And the ship’s wheel in your pants?”
“Arrr!” he said, “It’s drivin’ me nuts!”
