<Gingerbread People> is a semi-hardcore raiding guild. We mean to push as much progress as we can into our raid nights, without having to raid every day, which requires a certain level of skill and knowledge from our raiders, combined with the right attitude.
Our progression raids are on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time. Invites are sent out at 19:45 so that at raid start we're all ready to pull. We have a simple points system to help keep track of who's sitting out and who's late or doesn't show up. We expect our raiders to respond to calendar invites in advance, and to let us know when things come up that prevent them from making a specific night (absences forum).
The guild provides 275 stat feasts for farm content, but all raiders should have at least a stack of their best stat food on them for those progress fights where every little point matters. Being properly gemmed, enchanted, reforged, flasked and potted should go without saying, but putting it out here just in case anyway.
When it comes to loot, we go with a simple need or pass, main spec and toon getting priority over off spec and alts. Seeing how we value group progression overall more than small personal upgrades, we encourage raiders to act and roll accordingly.
Benching order is decided by the raid leader, and is based on the best class combination for that particular boss, skill level of the raiders in question and the amount of benched/screw up points accumulated. The points are stored in the officer note and are visible to all the raiders.
