After being rejected multiple times by many different Draigoch groups, I saw a tell in GLFF for any and all players. Thinking there is no way this guy will take my Guard, I responded anyways. Long story short, Adlers pulled together a 12 man PUG (down to 11 with one player dropping) that did all 12 CJ's and didn't wipe a single time, despite having 6 or more first timers. With 2 guards and 1 warden, the 2 guards were playing in OP mode, but that's ok, we still learned and successfully completed this raid that so many of us are not allowed to run by the "elite".
So anyways, thank you so very much Adlers for being a leader, a teacher and a great player on Brandywine!!
PS, yes, I understand why a 7 or 8 man Draigoch raid would not want inexperienced players, but it's nice that there are players out there willing to take the time to create EXPERIENCED players to increase the pool size!
