It seemed that the idea of running a retro raid each week went over rather well. So I was thinking that to start off we run something like Kara on Thursday/Friday unless anyone has any objections to it or wants to run something else.

So I thought I would post this thread so we can all know what everyone else wants/needs and plan out accordingly.

Also Tyffin asked a good question earlier today in OOC chat; something about whether or not a non-guildie could tag along. I think this should also be addressed; but in my opinion as long as they don't take the place of a gnome who needs something then sure.

The policy is that whenever we set foot in an instance for the first time (until it is completed), it is a Guild only venture. We have on rare occasions made exceptions to that rule. After that, it's pretty much open. If you want to bring an alt, go ahead. If an out-of-guild player would like to come with, they may - as long as they respect our raid rules. Main one being - don't run ahead of the tank: if you pull it, you tank it.
The only thing from the older raids that Brixee wants is the T2 shoulders from Chromomaggus in DWL. Jinky would go for achieves (and experience), as there would be no gear she particularly wants. Katt might go on classic raids for some of the old T1/2 gear, but that's about it.

Fridays sounded like a popular time to start scheduling these. I was thinking we could each of them in turn, or take a vote among the people who are online on Friday where they want to go. Gruuls and Mags are both short and could be lumped together as one Raid. So the list might look like this...

Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj
Molten Core
Blackwing Lair
Temple of Ahn'Qiraj

Burning Crusade
Magtheridon's Lair / Gruul's Lair
The Battle for Mount Hyjal
Serpentshrine Cavern
The Black Temple
Tempest Keep
Sunwell Plateau

And yes, if we have cleared a raid previously with an all-Gnome run, then by all means alts, friends, guests are welcome as long as they understand that they are guests of G4 and conduct themselves accordingly.

If we -havent- cleared a particular raid by ourselves (and currently that means everything Ulduar and up) I would prefer that the run remain exclusively G4. My primary reason for this is: when we (or anyone else) looks at our Raid Achievements, we know that G4 earned every one of them.

I will just add that I totally agree with Forbs and Brixee on this one

Same here was just checking to be on the safe side; but yeah was leaning towards doing raids up to the Sunwell with the occasional early Wrath thrown in depending on if anyone wants it. Then when we get to more of the Cata progression raiding add some of the various Wrath ones in as well...personally I want that gnomish looking dagger that dropped Saturday night.

I think how Forbs listed everything would work however; where is the epicness know as Karahazan???? (Maybe a bit biased tho since so far thats my favorite raid)
