The Nightmare Crusaders are our all-star nightmare progression raid team formed from the best raiders throughout the guild and other raid teams. Their mission is to clear all the Nightmare x16 raids from the guild progress tracker. The team is led by Flava'h the Master of Nightmares 👹
Is it worth signing up if I am not a Crusader? The Crusaders are a fixed team but they may need spots filled so do signup if you think you are ready but keep in mind that it is as a backup. If you signup in advance and Flava'h knows that any Crusaders will be missing then he can quickly see who else has said they are available to cover spots and contact you directly.
Keep in mind the group will be doing the most challenging content in the game so please only signup if:
You know the raids in at least HMx16 or NMx8
Nightmare experience is not necessary as everyone starts somewhere but you must of demonstrated noticeable skill in the HMs
Should already understand your class and your gear
Must understand the necessity of using Teamspeak & Starparse
Must understand when to shut up and focus
It's unlikely a guest will be chosen if there are full Crusader signups but if there are spots then it's always good to let the team know you are ready & available by signing up
Must enjoy slideshow fights 😅
There are a very small number of people that help lead our general HMx16 raids but we will do our best to provide two raids each Saturday so that those not chosen to join the Nightmare Crusaders can still have a good chance of joining the second group on less difficult content. That is not to say super easy raids, just not NMx16.
How do I join the Nightmare Crusader rank? Flava'h and our all-star Crusaders will keep an eye out for exceptional players they notice at our other events and raids. Keep in mind that you may be a hotshot but if your attitude means you can't work as part of a focused and friendly team then you won't be invited to join them. You are the only person that can decide how people see you.
One sure shot way to get noticed as a DPS is to join our DPS Club as Flava'h is the Damage Club Leader so he sees and checks all the parses.
Why haven't I been asked to join the Crusaders already? Do not be upset if Flava'h doesn't track you down, it is a very busy time for us all and the team numbers are intentionally being kept to the ~16-20 range to encourage close synchronous teamwork. If you feel you have been overlooked then please do contact Flava'h directly but please do not be offended if you are not chosen.
Regardless, this is becoming a conversation, lets get back to this thread if we wish to continue.
I dont deny that this is a terrible nerf, but we can't know yet how is this healer compared to other healers. If they nerf all the rest even worse, the sorc healer will remain as viable as others...
(for those unaware, 1.0 = sorc heal so bad, they would refuse you and wait another 15 minutes for merc or op)
The only playable DPS spec is the one with the bug and with these numbers sorc lost sustained, burst and aoe. Do you play the healer, rafi? I play sorc from the release, these numbers remind me 1.0
Don't go "delete sorcs" yet until we see what happens to all other healers. I suspect a nerf to the operative aoe (cost increase as well), and to his sustained probes, and a nerf to merc's aoe too
