Introduction to Blind Raids

Have you ever wanted to experience WoW's raids as they probably were back in the day - figuring out what to do on your own, or together with your group, without the aid of add-ons or established strategies that already know what's going to happen in advance and spoil the whole thing for you? No? Alright...

But still, consider it for a moment. Now you want to do it. You want to do it!! Well, too bad. That ship has sailed.

Let's build our own ship. For those of you who may still be unfamiliar with some of the raids, I offer you an opportunity to experience them in an environment which assumes that nobody knows anything. For the rest of you who know the raids through and through, I expect that we'll be doing at least some things differently from the established tactics, so there might be a challenge for you as well.

The general idea is:
- No addons or Discord required. There will be no raid-wide DBM or Discord. (Whether you use DBM is up to you, I wouldn't suggest it)
- If we are generally not familiar with the raid, we attempt to advance through trial and error.
- If we are familiar with standard raid tactics, we try to come up with unorthodox tactics. This could involve a different approach, raid composition, application of class skills, gear adjustment or anything else.
- All inexperienced players are welcome. If you aren't certain in your ability to perform sufficiently well in a particular raid with your current gear, ask me or anyone else. Experienced players also welcome, try not to spoil too much.
- Expect to wipe and die. Don't expect to full clear or finish quickly.

Planned dates are not set in stone yet, but expected dates are:
- Naxx10: Thursday, Jan 5 around 19:00 Server Time;

Feel free to post here or find me in-game if you'd like to sign up ahead of time or if you have a problem with these dates.

I'm interested in this concept!
Xmas schedule might make my availability variable, though. But I want in the project!

Great! About 4 people have expressed direct interest in this, I think we'll be able to do it. I realized that it was kind of a bad time to schedule the raids for this time of the year, so I'll push the dates to 2023

Will still attempt the planned naxx today if everyone shows up
