I am not a dedicated raider, but I love raiding. Since I can never commit to the raiding schedules that guilds require of their raiders, I am in a constant state of pugging. When I'm not actively in a pug, I am scanning the trade channel looking for one that will have all the qualities required to be successful- gear, experience, patience, and maybe a little bit of luck. When I find such a group, I'm ecstatic. But more often than not, I face group after group of impatient, inexperienced, and under geared scrubs who simply want to be carried to the final boss so they can get their [EPIC LOOT] Those groups often end in a way that everyone who has ever pugged is familiar with- people getting frustrated and leaving. But every now and then, there is a group that fails so bad, the fail is almost a win, in and of itself, for being such a unique level of fail.

Those are the groups this blog is about.

The post 85 JP grind

So you hit 85 and you're ready to raid! But you have no gear. None. Ok, maybe you have a couple pieces of JP gear from doing dungeons before you could spend them. And a couple crafted pieces. But you've got nowhere near the gear you'll need to start raiding.

Unless your guild loves you, or is generally incredibly helpful to new 85's, it is time to beat your face against the PUG machine for awhile.
