Friday raidnight
After two Tier 1 clears we’ll add Boss 1 tier 2. Add other bosses or perhaps a Tier 3 Boss 1 depending on interest, results and signups. We’ll skip Tier 4/5 challenger titles.

“Classes needed in the kin?”
Gotten the question a few times. The class you like to play and are good at or want to get better at. But in general, For 3 and 6-man’s Tank, heal and loremaster. It takes a lot of time to get one ready, if you need a hand just give a shout.

Lottery and kin weekend planned for 2-3 april. Details follow this week.
Characters in raiding kins. Some kinnies have taken 1 or more characters to different kins to participate in more regular T2+ raids etc. They are still welcome and kinnies. It’s just a matter of preferred playstyles that they can’t find (enough of) in Wisdom. I don’t want ill-speaking or other nasty messages from people about it.
