I’d recommend getting 60 first and then join Vanquish, Riot or Kittens. The first two are the top 2 and should be choice 1 and 2. If you can make the app process and play on pop day, you will get super nice items in time.

Lighthouse would be a good fit!

This is not true. You can pick the raids you want to attend on hardcore guilds. DKP system or not it doesn't make any difference, you still need to accumulate enough attendance / dkp for any items. At least you know, over time as you accumulate enough dkp, you WILL get the item eventually.

Say there is a specific epic piece that on avg drops 2 times a month. Of the two times, most likely it's the top 2 or 3 guilds getting it. It's all about opportunities. When a smaller guild has little chance at getting a specific item, adding the competition within the guild who wants it, the final chance of getting item is so slim to none.

As an individual, will you have a better shot at epic_quest_piece_01 (e.g. Green Scale) on a small guild who gets one a year, or in a big guild who gets 12 a year? Answer is pretty obvious. Random/loot countil whatever system in a smaller guild doesn't give you a better chance at an item, because seeing the item drop for the guild is rare to start with.

P.S. The last 7 child tears went for about 1-5 dkp. If one raid attendance = 2 dkp, means you have enough to win the item after attending 3 successful raids.
depending on the loot, yes. But if you can only make 10% of raids and like i said, dont track (you know, a casual raider) if you want something like a ruby tear? Sure, you could get it EVENTUALLY. In like 4 years.

Get 60. Make friends. If any of those friends happen to be in the top 3 guilds, see about applying. You donít have to like everyone in your guild but youíll have more fun if you like some of them.


As previously mentioned. More often than not, if youíre not in Vanquish/Riot/Kittens you likely will watch other guilds get kills. Raid targets have a very short lifespan on blue and the guilds that can mobilize most hours of the day get the lions share of kills.


Awesome people in all of those guilds. As to casual raiding, all 3 will require some level of willingness to at least learn how to play your character and or how to fill certain roles on raids (which is actually quite a lot of fun once you get going) raid attendance is not required. Honestly I rarely can make 7 day pops because of my work schedule and I still earn a decent amount of dkp and have earned a few really nice items.

Will you get many BIS items playing casually? Probably not. But if laid back is what youíre looking for then that likely isnít a concern for you.

There was.

Rustle stopped raiding at 11pm EST religiously.

FTE lockouts were the reason why it could happen. They removed lockouts because people could abuse FPS to jump/tab to run faster on races.

They have fixed that issue mechanically and with rules. Still no return to FTE lockouts, the least petitions ever experienced on the server.

in contrast, chance of a non top1-3 guild getting ruby tear is 0%

There is not a casual way to complete the necromancer epic, sorry to burst everyone's bubble. Realistically if you are not a hardcore player this item is out of reach.

The best bet is to get VP keyed (HUGE time sink for a casual player in its own right) and get https://wiki.project1999.com/Shissar_Seance_Staff - even so you need to be in one of the top 3 guilds (I've no idea who competes in VP these days)

Most agree its better than the Epic anyways. However the chances of getting this staff are lightyears more feasible than getting Inny, CT, and Sky loot as a casual

Join a Lighthouse raid and see if you like it. They are open to everyone. We've gotten a few Slime Bloods and Eyes of Innoruuk. Our Sky raids might be early for you, Monday at 4pm Eastern time, but we're done in 2-3 hours. Best of luck,
