We had/have a similiar situation happening in the guild I'm in. We are a splinter off of another guild, the majority (9 of 10) of the raid team started a new guild. I took the 10th spot. I was server transferring to join a friend in the big guild, but the day I landed on the new server was the say the new guild started and taaadaaa i got taken along (kicking and screamin and omg i am gonna kill us ALL!! the whole way). The first raid I ever did was 5/6 of BWD. We stopped at Nef that night.. back in October. I still have no Nef kill, but in that time, we've started a second raid team that DID manage to kill Nef, so at least the guild has the achievement. The following week we started Firelands. We've got one person working on the legendary staff, our mage. She is on the part with the 1000 seething thingies. We're 6/7 normal mode, and those 6 can be done in one night.The issue came up the week the patch dropped. Most of our group wanted to stay in Firelands because only 2 of us have a 4-set bonus.. and one is now the raid leader of team 2, so for the purpose of comparison, doesn't count. Some of us could still get our tier 12 upgrades, even if we just have them for a short time, having them going into DS would be helpful. At first, our raid leader saved firelands on Rag since we spent one whole night on him and couldn't get him down. We didn't have our whole raid team, we were running with 3 fill-ins) and things were just not working. Tried again, saved on Rag again since even with our full 10 we couldn't get him down. After that attempt, he wasn't saved again. We spent our second raid night last week in Dragon Soul. We got 1 boss down, and 2 pretty decent attempts on 2 others to work on mechanics. Throughout the past couple weeks, with people in the guild both on the raid teams or not, hitting the raid finder, and discussion amongst raid members and officers and so on, it was decided (and I completely agree) that we would spend one night in firelands clearing our 6/7 to get the seethers for the legandary and the other night working on dragon soul. Everyone seems to be in agreement that this was a good idea. I'm a shadow priest, I was second in line for a legendary. I had started the first collection part of the quest (I think I got 6 of the embers, still in my bank), but once the patch dropped and the subject of how much time to spend in firelands came up, I knew it was time to drop it. I'm not really disappointed, I would have liked to have it, but its really not a big deal. I'm glad it was agreed upon to finish our Mage's legendary because she's put a lot of hard work and a lot of her own gold into it, and it would be really unfair to ask her to give it up.. especially since we have a rogue that will be working on the daggers. Having such a diverse group, and very little competition for gear/weapons is nice. I love my guildies.
