This seems like a good way for people to learn the fights before trying it for reals.Let's be honest though: the need for a leader will mean this will only end in tears. When will Blizz learn that people are douchebags on the internet?Let's hope that the debuff is only applied if you leave in the first 30 minutes, like the regular LFG.

Unfortunately, I can see "striking" making a comeback, given the "importance" of raids.If you "don't like the scenario" (which, admittedly, could be everything from "the group are being douchebags" to "you are being a douchebag"), head out of the instance, alt+tab, and either wait to be kicked, or for the people that are "the problem" to leave.Sadly, I've seen it done. No one can make you stay in the instance, and being kicked carries no deserter penalty.

So how will people be able to try raids "for reals" if they're in guilds too small to even contemplate a raid? BTW, if you haven't noticed, raid pugs don't exist anymore.I was hoping there for a little while, but now I can finally give up on the fantasy that my rogue might ever actually see any part of the legendary daggers since I'll never be able to enter a "for reals" raid until it's about as difficult as, say, Kara is now. And I finally did get a chance to see that one a few weeks ago--kinda boring, actually; don't see what all the fuss was about.

Well, Sam, you could capitalize on the hands-on knowledge of the raid that you, and the rest of the "want to raid, but guild is too small" community, would now have, in an unprecedented fashion, I might add, to form a server-side PUG or loose raiding alliance. You wouldn't even need 25 people, you could go 10-man.Heck... you could even take in every class except other rogues... not that I'd personally go that far, but the option is there.

@SamIf you are that committed to getting the legendary then I would go on your realm forum and see if any guilds want/need a rogue. There may be a guild out there willing to take one on and help them get the legendary. I believe it would give them an achievement and get you what you want as well. It's worth a shot. But if you don't want to put in the time and energy talking to people you clearly don't deserve the weapon. So it's totally up to you.

They don't let douche bags on the internet!

I would say that if you aren't already considered a solid raiding member of a raiding guild, you probably have no more chance at the legendary daggers than a caster who wasn't already part of a solid raiding guild at the beginning of 4.2. Most raiding guilds have a rogue, and those that don't have some raider with a rogue alt they'd take before bringing in an unknown with no raiding history.I personally have a rogue alt I'd like to run for it, but my guild already has a rogue who's been raiding with us since the beginning of cata and she deserves it far more than someone like me who is capable with my rogue but abandoned it for my hunter since ranged dps was so much more necessary. Still, if we didn't have a rogue main in my guild, I'd be lobbying hard to be the one to bring a rogue for the legendary.
