Post here what days you'll probably be available for the next couple months.

Also, post what types of activities you enjoy - no obligations or commitments if you'd like to try something new, but aren't sure.

From speaking with you Blake, Tues/Wed should work ok for me. What would be a rough starting time?

My wife doesn't coach Tuesday so that night she will be on puppy watch. Wed, I would have to take at least 1 or 2 ten minute break(s) during the course of a few hours if that's fine I'll gladly help. Thought I'm not 50 yet, I pew pew like a pro!.

We'll probably do it like we've been doing it in WoW for the past xpac:

invites at 7:45 pm
buffed and starting trash pulls at 8 pm
one 10-15 min break around 9:30-10ish
and a couple quick (< 2 min) bio breaks as needed
finished up around 11-11:30

I'm not really that stringent about how we do it, but I do get upset if the entire group is waiting on 1 person for an excessive amount of time.

The reason for this is simple math: when there's 7 people waiting on one person, each minute lost is wasting 7 minutes of time. This can add up over the course of many sessions.

If one person causes the group to wait for 3 minutes at a time, on two occassions per night, its not that big of a deal at first glance, but it adds up:

(3 minutes AFK) x (2 times per night) x (2 nights per week) x (4 weeks per month) x (7 people waiting) = 5 hours and 36 minutes
wasted per month, with it being over 11 hours per month if we run a 16 person Op.

Now, that said, I certainly don't want to discourage you, and rereading the above post sounds kinda like I was.

I think you'd enjoy the content, its much better than WAR so far, and we'd love to include you.
