    Quite a long waiting period for the Non-raiders (including me) to get their first Garrosh kill. FYI Pugging normal on our realm isn't easy

    Lame why not open lfr on day one. I'd rather do it in Lfr before the guild's normal raid. I don't like watching videos of fights on youtube.

    I don't understand why they would gate flex that hard, 1 wing every week seems fine... (same for lfr)

    Except that you are due to the unnecessarily complicated nature of fights these days.

    Ever read the dungeon journal? It's like an essay.

    It's still your choice..

    Kind of bummed that flex is going to open up over the course of a month.. but I guess that means that the guild can focus more on normal fights.

    You can't cross-realm current tier. You can only cross-realm previous ones. So you can't cross-realm Throne of Thunder until next patch comes.

    If you think the normals are hard you may try the lfr and flex mode then :/

    For LFR this is a artificial progression. Normal raiders doesn't kill Garrosh week one either you know!

    It's not really my choice. I either comply with the raid group or I gtfo. I suppose you could be saying i could choose not to raid, but there's nothing else in wow worth doing.

    Agreed...that is quite a wait considering you still need to create your own group and organise it, unlike LFR.

    Uh, no. You can't cross-realm group for normal or heroic.

    You are wrong. You can cross realm Flex Raids and old raids, but not current normal/heroic raids.
  1. Spotnick's Avatar
    For those who still don't understand this, they want to give chance for normal raiders to kill Garrosh before flex can, and they want flex raiders a chance to kill Garrosh before LFR can.. as simple as that.

    Which is fine..
