View Full Version : (H) GDKP Run, ICC-25 HC, Thursday Sept 9th @ 20:00-00:00

07-09-2010, 11:12 PM
For several months now Tainted have been running weekly ICC-25s with a bunch of regular non guildies/PuGs. Most nights we typically full-clear (inc LK) with 8 or 9 / 12 Heroic Modes down. While we normally just /roll loot off, this week we will be trying GDKP out.

Right now we have around 5 spots left and wanted to open them up here to people who might be interested in coming. We don't plan on 'boosting' 251-ilvl players into a lot of cheap epics, so the overall pot from our runs may be lower than you see on others (there won't be as much competition for items as many of our players have numerous 277 items). However we do typically clear all the easy Heroics and some of the not-so-easy ones. So if you want a shot at a lot of 277-drops, or are just interested in Heroic DBW or whatever, and have the gear and experience to be useful in those fights then this is the run for you.

F.A.Q. (Blatantly copy/pasted from Ring0's post).

What is a GDKP / Gold Run ?
Can't be bothered looking? Bid for drops with gold, then the gold gets split between everyone at the end.

How much do I need to bring?
It depends on what your aims are. Are you joining with a low geared alt to buy lots of items? Then bring lots of gold! Are you a well geared main who wants to EARN lots of gold? Then don't bring any.

How much do items cost?
Minimum bid for boss items: 1000g
Minimum raise on epic items: 200g

You can expect the sought after items to go for considerably more than minimum bids though.

What gear level do I need?
There are basically three type of people who will be coming to the raid:

Those coming to earn gold by carrying everyone else. You need a mix of 264/277 (t10) level gear.
Those who want some specific items, but are decently geared. You need average 264 level gear and a minimum of 10,000 gold to throw around, more being better.
Those who have lots of gold and want to buy lots of stuff. you should have mostly 264 gear, with some 251 items being ok, and over 30,000 gold to spend.

What else do I need to know?
- There will probably be some wipes. Sometimes HC Saurfang or LDW don't go down easily. Don't come if you aren't prepared to wipe occasionally.
- Be prepared. We will provide Feasts, but we expect all raiders to be flasked for the duration of the raid.
- Be able to raid from 20:00 to 00:00 server time. We typically invite at 19:45 or so, so be online then if you want a spot.
- Be able to listen on Vent.

would help if you said the roles you are trying to fill

Most of our raiders have two viable main-specs so we can accommodate pretty much anything if they are geared/experienced.

Of course if 4 tanks sign it might be a different story, but your role shouldn't affect your decision to sign.

We just completed our run for this week. Fairly successful, full clear in 3.5 hours with 9/12 kills on Heroic.

91k pot, so about 3.5k per player. We will be making this a regular thing (same time, same day each week) so if you are interested just reply when we post details of the next run.
