Guild Raiding in BfA
Uldir Release Date: The opening dates for Uldir have been added to the in-game calendar

  • September 4th, 2018 - Normal and Heroic Uldir open
  • September 11th, 2018 - Mythic and Wing 1 LFR Uldir open
  • September 25th, 2018 - Wing 2 LFR Uldir opens
  • October 9th, 2018 - The final LFR Wing of Uldir opens


That means the New Raid team must be READY TO GO by September 4th, 2018. Uldir drops 355+ilvl gear, which means you're expected to be 335+ fully gemmed and enchanted when you apply to join the raid Team. We will progress to starting Heroic when the majority of the team passes a 350+ ilvl as Heroic drops 370+ loot.

Leveling and Gearing guides are available on WoWhead to streamline your efforts, remember as always to lean on other guildies to run dungeons and heroics.


On August 9th, the current raid team will disband. This allows all members to change classes/roles if they wish, and not be locked into a toon they may be bored playing. On Tuesday, August 28th the application will be unlocked. Anyone wishing to join is expected to put the effort in to be ready and have applied by that date or August 2nd by the LATEST to allow team compilation and application review. 

Raid Group Attendance exceptions:

  • All "Exceptions" (Leave early/Miss certain nights) are also reset. Permission for necessary work/life situations will need to be re-obtained by petitioning the raid group and receiving a majority vote in your favor. 
  • Leaving to join a secondary raid group is no longer permissible. Please apply to a teams with different raid schedules so that neither team feels "second fiddle" to any other. 
  • Anyone needing an exception to leave early/miss nights MAY NOT hold a key position such as heals or tanking. You MAY still hold the back up role for the positions. 

Main Progression Raids (Heroic/Normal only) Tuesday and Thursday - 6:00pm to 9:00pm MT (8:00pm to 11:00pm ET) Invites start 10-15 minutes prior to raid

If you cannot attend all of both nights, please do not apply at this time. Back up spots will become available later once progression has proceeded. 

  • Toons that are not in guild can NOT be given priority placing on this team. It is a GUILD group. Please consider moving any toons you wish to raid with into the guild. 
  • Raiders must demonstrate class competency and a basic knowledge of the fights, which can be gleaned from MULTIPLE sources on the Internet. So there is no excuse for you to not know what you're doing. 
  • Remember a min ilvl 335+ is required with all gear gemmed and enchanted. 

To Sign up: You must read all raiding informational threads in their ENTIRETY and then fill out the application at the end. No exceptions. This proves effort, dedication, and ability to find what you need on your own. (indication you'll be a functional raider)

Keep in mind if you do not meet minimum criteria you will be declined. If you are accepted but demonstrate no class knowledge you will be sat out until you do your homework. Signs you are not class competent include pulling low numbers with high gear, not using extra spells like CC and dispels, and asking "what's that" when we ask you to do something. Also if you continuously stand in fire you will be sat out until you learn to move your ass and that fire is NOT a buff. 

You are expected to know all fights by September 4th: This includes

  • major mechanics
  • what to and not to stand in
  • how to use your personal abilities to counter raid mechanics

You are not expected to be perfect, but you are expected NOT TO HAVE TO ASK "what is that?" because you will ALREADY KNOW. 

Midnight Carnival uses the Fatboss Raid guides for major positioning and Mechanic strategies when we begin a new raid, we then adapt the strategy to our own team as we go. Those guides are augmented with written encounter guides on WoW-Head, and per ability mechanics/class suggestions on Icy-Veins

All information you need to become a raider is provided for you on the Raiding tab. Good luck! And we hope to see you on the team!!
