Me, Therin and Tet have been working on guys for a [achievement]Herald of the Titans[/achievement] raid. For those of you that aren't familiar, this became a Feat of Strength in 4.0 but it is still achievable - with the same restrictions of having done it at current content. It would be fun to do with friends, so I wanted to let folks know here in case they were interested in the badass title that will share in 5.0.

It's been a long time since I've killed Algalon when the mechanics actually mattered, so I'm going to get a run of it led by someone else first to test the waters. After that I was thinking I would lead one for MCA folks who were interested (I'll use OpenRaid for any remaining open slots).
    • Requirements:

      • Must be level 80.
      • Your armor must be ilvl 226 or lower.
      • Your MH/OH/ranged must be ilvl 232 or lower.
      (basically no ilvl higher than what you can earn in Ulduar 10man)

      Functionally, this means getting a toon to 80, turning off XP, then farming Ulduar, TOC5 heroic, ICC5 normals, and Justice Points to buy old badge gear, until you have around 220 average ilvl.
I know the timing is kinda off since people will soon be focusing on new Mists stuff, but I thought I'd post something well in advance in case people wanted to prepare some characters for the raid. If you have an old 80 character that you never leveled in Cata, it takes a few weeks to farm the gear.

I can post more helpful information if anyone thinks they might be interested in joining us.

Is anyone else working on this? Therin and Tet's alts are about geared, so I'll probably lead one in a couple weeks but I can hold off if anyone else is planning to do something with it. I'd love to get more MCA folks in.

And yes, the title does share. :D

I have a 80 mage I could downgear, but I'm not sure I have the time or real desire to do it. :\ Still have a bunch of pre-MoP stuff to do and then there is GW2...

BiS 226 could take quite awhile, but a set of mixed 200-226 is good enough and can be put together in 2-3 days.

Yeah, running the ICC5 normals until you get 219s is cake. You can buy a ton of slots though with JP: chest, legs, belt, neck, hat, gloves. Crafted can get you shoes. I filled in one hole with a ilvl 200 JP trinket, but otherwise was not too bad.

I know you did it Lith (you were the first person I tlaked to actually that successfully did a Herald run on OpenRaid), what toon did you use?
