I wish I could raid IC, but I think it's going to be a guild-only, DKP, vent-o-riffic nightmare. I think I'll just do the 5-mans, gear up on the badges, take some time off from WoW and wait for Cataclysm.I'll just watch Arthas' demise on Youtube. Nsidia or whatever their name is will probably put a good video together for us to watch lol

Join a guild. Download Vent. Problem Solved. If you want to raid, that's what you have to do. there's no way around it, its the gamed design.....Are you the DK I pugged with who had a +30stam gem in the crafted bracer Titanium Spikeguards?

Can't say much about your distaste for vent, but I guarantee you there is a guild on your server that is doing ICC, doesn't use DKP, and has open slots in their raids. There are just as many people like you out there that hate DKP and prefer easier loot systems.Put up a post on the wow forums, check out worldofraids.com's guild recruitment tool, or just spam what you're looking for in dalaran's general chat. If you are geared enough to do the 10 man, I bet you will find people to do it with.
Raids these days are much more accessible than they used to be. No, you're probably not going to be able to PUG your way through it at first, but there's no reason not to run ICC if you actually want to. I've got a lovely group of 10 adults that runs through all the Northrend instances together, 6 hours total a week. We're in different guilds but met through a community for mature players on my server. Our loot system is need onspec, greed offspec. Yeah, we use Vent, but it's not obnoxious vent with idiots playing metal music or whatever the kids do these days. Those 6 hours a week have gotten us up to Algalon and Heroic Anub at this point, and we cleared ICC on normal with ease.Another group of friends that is even more casual has finished everything on normal mode right on time to go into ICC with their 6 hours a week. And this is despite having started a new raid in Naxx about the time that Ulduar came out, thus being behind the instancing curve for a while. And not all of them use Vent... they work with it. All it takes really is a group of people with similar playstyles who decide to get together for a set x number of hours a week and learn the encounters.
