Full heroic clear. Legion coming this year. Now what?
I promised I'd make this into a thread. Hey, look, I eventually remembered!
We have heroic archimonde down, twice now, and I'm fairly certain everyone who has been coming with us has now gotten their moose, amirite?
Now what shall we do?
In the past, this is the point where we turn off raiding and have a break until next expansion (I know at this point I'm long overdue for a raiding break), but we have a new crop of people than I'm used to working with, so I'd love your input.
My thoughts on each suggestion I've heard are outlined below, to help start the discussion.
On The Subject of Mythics
If this is the way you want to move forward, I will NOT be leading them. We have some folks whose performance just isn't really there right now, and this would involve a lot of intense fixing-of-problems, which has blown up in my face in the past. Couple that with the need to bench people, bring pugs, and increasing wipe probability by a factor of about a million, and you are talking about a pretty intense recipe for low morale... which in turn causes people to leave or perform worse, increasing the need for pugs and problem-fixing, decreasing morale... it's a vicious cycle I am no longer prepared to handle.
If someone else would like to run mythics, this is your time to step forward and say "I'll do it." You can take over from me at will.
On The Subject of Alts
Alt runs have become more prevalent. This is something we can do more of, if you like.
On The Subject of Farming
Usually we as a raid farm gear in order to increase progression. If we are not planning on doing Mythics, farming gear is a bit on the pointless side. That's just my opinion, though. Perhaps you have another you'd like to share?
On The Subject of Old Content
This is a viable option. We can spend a month getting mounts and achievements, if you like.
On The Subject of PVP
I doubt anyone wants to get a crack RBG team or a 5man arena group going, but hell, if you want, I suppose we can.
On The Subject of Just Shutting Up and Waiting Until Legion
This is a viable option by a long shot. We don't HAVE to have organized play going on.
PLEASE add to the discussion. And PLEASE remember that, outside of raiding, I'm not really leading anything. You can stand up and say "I'm organizing this," if you like. Don't necessarily look at me to make the decision.
