Christmas Raid Schedules

Christmas Raid Schedules

Please note that raids are cancelled each of the two weeks prior to the Christmas holiday in December.

Many of our raid team members will be travelling for the Christmas holiday and/or celebrating with friends and family during this time. This is also a time when some of us will have house guests, children who are on Winter Break from school, or end-of-the-year office parties and events to attend. Thus, in order to spare our sanity and create as peaceful a holiday as possible, we are going to take time off as a raid team for the next few weeks.

Raid Cancellation Schedule

Christmas Day (December 25) falls on a Sunday this year.

Therefore, raids on December 13, 16, 20, and 23 are cancelled.

Detailed View:

Week 1

Raid on Tuesday, December 13, 2016 is CANCELLED.

Raid on Thursday, December 16, 2016 is CANCELLED.

Week 2

Raid on Tuesday, December 20, 2016 is CANCELLED.

Raid on Thursday, December 23, 2016 is CANCELLED.

Mythics and Other Runs

Please note that while raids are cancelled these weeks, guild and raid team members are encouraged to continue running mythics and other dungeons/content during this time. There is always ample opportunity to continue building rapport and relationships with your fellow raid team members throughout the year (regardless of whether we are conducting formal raids as a guild).

Raiding Continues

Regular raids will commence again beginning on Tuesday, December 27, 2016.

Please check OpenRaid for the latest information and to sign up for future raids.

Coram Populo Now 2/7 H in Emerald Nightmare!

Coram Populo Now 2/7 H in Emerald Nightmare!

Congratulations to the Coram Populo raid team, which is now 2/7 H in the Emerald Nightmare raid!

Ursoc proved to be quite the angry bear, with bad news to deliver to everyone around him. However, our raid team managed to pull off quite the victory and secured our place and foothold in the next phase of this epic raid. This marks the second victory we have achieved in heroic mode, and we hope to continue this trend as we move forward.

Study Those Heroic Boss Encounters!

Current raid team members should begin studying up on all heroic boss fight encounters in the Emerald Nightmare raid encounter. Before you know it, we will be pushing past the content that you are already well-versed on at current time!

Great Work!

As always, great work, everyone! We look forward to continued progression well into Legion.

Joining Our Raid Team

If you are interested in raiding with us, please join our Discord server, speak with Tehrass (Battletag: Tehrass#1655, TehrassDH@gmail.com), sign up for an OpenRaid account, and review the raid team requirements located on our guild website.

Information about enchants, food, flasks, potions, runes, and other buffs is available on our guild website. Please note that these are not optional and the logs will show if raiders are not properly gearing, using buffs during raid or drinking two potions per fight.

Active raiders should also be looking at OpenRaid (Coram Populo on OpenRaid), Warcraft Logs, WoWProgress, and our raid night replays on Twitch (http://www.twitch.tv/tarcanusfrostbourne).

Coram Populo Now 1/7 H in Emerald Nightmare!

Coram Populo Now 1/7 H in Emerald Nightmare!

Congratulations to the Coram Populo raid team which is now 1/7 in heroic progression in the Emerald Nightmare raid!

Although Nythendra was a bit pesky on heroic mode, our raid team withstood the challenge and defeated the defiled dragon by the end of our raid night on Friday. Our team continues to grow and improve with each raid, and we could not be more proud of what they have been able to accomplish in the early stages of Legion.

Raiding Plans Current and Future

Our plan for current and future raid nights is as follows:

  1. Tuesdays, we shall continue to farm 7/7 Emerald Nightmare (Normal) in our two-hour raid time.
    1. We have proven with last week’s raid that we are able to defeat the entire raid on normal difficulty within this short amount of time. Moar Xavius, moar loot.
  2. Fridays, we shall continue to push into Emerald Nightmare (Heroic) in our three-hour raid time.
    1. There are always things to work on and improve upon both individually and collectively and new bosses present new challenges as well.

Once we feel as though normal mode will no longer serve us, we shall make the switch to progressing through heroic mode on both raid nights (and thus have five hours to dedicate to heroic progression each week).

Study Those Heroic Boss Encounters!

Current raid team members should begin studying up on all heroic boss fight encounters in the Emerald Nightmare raid encounter. Before you know it, we will be pushing past the content that you are already well-versed on at current time!

Great Work!

As always, great work, everyone! We look forward to continued progression well into Legion.

Coram Populo Now 7/7 N in Emerald Nightmare!

Coram Populo Now 7/7 N in Emerald Nightmare!

Congratulations to the Coram Populo raid team which is now 7/7 in normal progression in the Emerald Nightmare raid!

Cenarius and Xavius could not withstand the might of our guild members, and we will hopefully have these two bosses on farm fairly soon. Even with an accidental pull on Xavius, the team managed to down the boss on its first attempt. It is great to see that we have over twenty raid team members with us for every raid night/event. The Legion hype and our guild hype is real!

Our plan is to continue working on normal mode encounters until we have defeated Xavius 3-4 times and can successfully clear the entire raid in one two-hour session. At that point, we will begin heroic mode difficulty progression in the Emerald Nightmare.

Great work, everyone! We look forward to continued progression well into Legion.

Legion Raiding: Enchants, Buffs (Food, Flasks, Runes), and Potions

Legion Raiding: Enchants, Buffs (Food, Flasks, Runes), and Potions

For those of you who are still wondering what pieces of gear you need to enchant for Legion raiding (or what buffs/food/flasks/potions/items you need to be prepared with each raid night), here is a short list of items and slots that are of great importance and mandatory for raiding with Coram Populo.

The items listed below are not optional (except for the glove and shoulder enchants). It is expected that each raid team member acquire their own enchants, food, buffs, and potions before each raid night and that each raid member have enough of each to last for an entire progression raid night.

Many guild and raid team members are enchanters, alchemists, and chefs so you should check in guild chat first before attempting to look for these items on the auction house. There are a lot of people in the guild who are willing to help you. Most times, you just need to provide the mats!

Enchants

“Binding of” enchants are more powerful versions of “Word of” enchants in Legion. Please be sure to get the most powerful version of the enchants that are best in slot for your class and spec.

  1. Neck: Random effects, depends on what role you are performing in the raid.
    1. Example: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=228408/mark-of-the-ancient-priestess
  2. Cloak: +200 to a primary stat
    1. Example: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=190879/binding-of-intellect
  3. Ring 1: +200 to a secondary stat
    1. Example: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=190871/binding-of-haste
  4. Ring 2: +200 to a secondary stat
    1. Example: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=190872/binding-of-mastery
  5. Gloves (Utility): Great for increasing the speed of collecting raw materials and archaeology fragments.
    1. Example: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=190991/legion-surveying
  6. Shoulders (Utility): Great for farming materials for professions. Acquired from various quests and factions.
    1. Example: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=190954/boon-of-the-scavenger

Glove and shoulder enchants are not mandatory for raiding. However, they do provide useful benefits throughout the Broken Isles and highly recommended for player utility and farming useful materials.

Buffs

Please note that there are multiple tiers of food buffs and you should be using the food buff that provides the highest increase to your preferred secondary stat as possible. You should also carry enough food, augment runes, and flasks to last throughout the evening. This may include up to 20+ pulls on a progression raid night.

  1. Food: +375 to a secondary stat
    1. Example: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=201507/nightborne-delicacy-platter
  2. Flask: +1300 to a primary stat
    1. Example: http://www.wowhead.com/item=127847/flask-of-the-whispered-pact
  3. Augment Rune: +325 to a primary stat
    1. Example: http://www.wowhead.com/item=140587/defiled-augment-rune

Potions

Everyone should carry enough DPS potions to last for an entire raid night. This includes using a DPS potion BEFORE each boss is pulled (pre-potting) AND during an appropriate situation for a second use of your preferred DPS potion.

In addition, everyone should carry enough health or rejuvenation potions to last for 20+ pulls on a progression raid night. This will be necessary especially when we do not have any warlocks in the raid on a given night.

  1. Health/Rejuvenation Potions
    1. Example: http://www.wowhead.com/item=127834/ancient-healing-potion
    2. Example: http://www.wowhead.com/item=127836/ancient-rejuvenation-potion
  2. DPS Potions
    1. Example: http://www.wowhead.com/item=127843/potion-of-deadly-grace

Guild Enchanters

Tarcanus (the player and character) has high-level enchanting and most of the Legion recipes unlocked.

PLEASE NOTE that you must include the name of the enchant that you are looking to acquire in your in-game mail so that Tarcanus can craft the appropriate item.

Please ensure that you have the right materials before sending Tarcanus (or any guild crafter) an enchanting request.

Guild Chefs

PLEASE NOTE that you must include the name of the food that you are looking to acquire in your in-game mail so that Tarcanus can cook the appropriate dish.

PLEASE NOTE that you must include the name of the flask or potion that you are looking to acquire in your in-game mail so that Vyctor can craft the appropriate item.

Please ensure that you have the right materials before sending Vyctor (or any guild crafter) an alchemy request.

Overall Performance Responsibility

Remember, it is up to you to research which food, buffs, and potions are appropriate for your role, spec and class (and to acquire them before raid night begins). Warcraft Logs and other tools we use to determine team performance and improvement do track the use of such items, so we will be able to see who has and has not been following instructions.

Save Some Coin!

We also realize that the prices for some of these items on the auction house are ridiculous at the moment. Therefore, please do not be afraid to ask a guild member to assist you with acquiring these items. As stated before, often times you need only provide them with the raw materials required to make that item!
