    I have this issue

    1. Friends/guild no longer playing, or not enough to put together 5 in a group
    2. Server completely dead
    3. Open Raid groups require 9/9 or they consider you being boosted, and thus want 100k gold


    I have 2/9 gold already and we one shot them, I have the gear/buffs I need and I'm more than a capable player to gold them all, I'd have done it already if I put in the effort while my guild was active, there is no urgency among guildies to get it done since a lot of them did it not long after MOP launch. Been trying for about a month to pull something together

    Open raid does a weekly(?) event specifically for people not 9/9. Having even 1/9 is enough to get it done via oQueue.

    I'm sorry to hear that. It did take a little while for me to get into my first gold group on open raid with 0/9 experience (I think I'm up to 5 or 6 done now), but I did find that there were usually at least a couple groups a week that specifically stated they were aimed at people with little to no experience. What I did was just try to show each group I signed up with that I took it seriously: I mentioned the CM specific gear that I had (eng helm, ToT+socket weapon, etc), that I had all my consumables ready, and that I'd read/watched the strats for whatever specific ones were mentioned in the raid sign up. It probably also helped that I'm a mage though, since I also bring Time Warp and frost is strong in CMs. If you are a class that may not be that in demand, you can always try setting up your own groups, although that is more work.

    as many people suggested / pointed out, mage is one of the best dps classes for cms. even if you don't have prior experience, say, you have a better chance to find cm than a semi-experienced rogue.

    good luck.

    I had the same issue, I play at 1am to 4:30am so server is dead and so is guild but I still managed to get 2 x CM and I did it through OQ.

    I started off just getting in anyone, but as I put more groups together I found more optimal players, some CM's took ages, I spent 6-7 hours in siege because people kept dying to the bombs at the start, I did scholomance like 70 wipes, took me around a month to get my first 9x9 (Doing CM's just on weekends and where I could find groups), 2nd 9x9 I only got 9x9 players and I completed it in a single night.

    Biggest thing for me is that I earned the gear, I didn't get carried.

    The hassle isn't doing them, the hassle is finding a group to do them.
