The PoP Backflags Guide

Postby Vhaelrun » Thu Feb 16, 2006 8:22 pm

Alot of MLF is at the point they are short a very flew flags for elemental access. Thanks to the herculean efforts of the Officers and WC, MLF is welcome on pretty much any guild's raid on the server for flags. In order for that to continue though, we need to make sure we don't cause unecessary hassle during those other guild's raids. Here's a few tips/links for raid behavior and getting to various mobs regardless of your level.

Major Raid Do's
1. Know how to do the preflag and have it done.
1a. Raid Guide Forum
1b. Detailed Progression Text at Allakhzam's
2. Know how to get to the zone and have maps loaded.
3. Have a gate potion AND invis potion on you.
4. DON'T make the mistake of thinking the boards run too slow and you can pick this up later. The average time for people to unsnarl their flags once they can get in Sol Ro is 2-3 RL hours. You WILL spend the time looking up your preflags sooner or later. You'll save yourself major headaches by doing it ahead of time.
5. Don't spam the channel for buffs, invites, questions. Ask your GL first and give people time to react. Patience is a virtue.

Major Raid Don'ts
1. Do not try to take over the MA/SA/RL/BURL's job no matter what.
2. Do not start criticizing how the raid is being handled in your group.
3. Do not start complaining/spamming in channel if you messed up your preflag.
4. Do not whine about not being able to loot anything that drops-makes the other guild nervous about ninjas-they don't know you.
5. Do not make unnanounced afks or get lost.
6. Do not forget to say Thank You.
7. There is NO good excuse for the above 6 things. Not a bad day. Not medication. Not being Ill. Not computer troubles.

How can I get to this flag if I am late?
Assume mobs have HUGE agro and see invis. Most do.
Join MLFdrag, that is where the rogues hang out.
