What is Mythic raiding? Well it's just heroic raids with a new name, and a new raid size! 20 MAN! for a brief explanation here's an image to show you how raiding is structured in Warlords of Draenor (WoD)
<Downfall> has always led amazing end-game content raids, and WoD is shaping up to exceed many past expansions in activity in raiding! So where will you fit in? Well that depends on your RL schedule, and how well you try-out for the raid you want to join!
The 6-9pm PST raids!
All raid names are only possibly place holders and subject to change
Raid Time: 9-12pm EASTERN
Raid Days: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday
Loot: Loot Council
Raid Time: 9-12pm EASTERN (unless we are so damn close to a kill . . then 15 minutes more)
Raid Days: Tuesday, Sunday
Loot: Loot Council
The 9-12pm PST Raid
Raid time: 9pm - 12am Pacific Standard Time
Days: Tuesday, Wednesday, Monday
Loot System: EP/GP (Point values TBD)
Those three Mythic raids all have different schedules. One should be more open to your available times and all of them will need fill-ins/replacements for random nights when regulars can't make it.
For those not looking to go very hardcore, or the hardcore raiders looking to fill that last slot of gear you're missing. There is Normal raids (currently on live difficulty called Flex.) When this difficulty came to the scene in 5.4, I started up a raid that made it so people wouldn't have to feel the need to either pug this, or run LFR. It was called "Elapsed Flexes". We ran on Saturdays at 6pm - 9pm Pacific. ilvl requirements were quite flexible, and we often found ourselves carrying and gearing up someone who just hit 90.
So the final raid to mention is.....
Elapsed Attempts to be Normal
Raid time: 6pm - 9pm Pacific Standard Time (9-12 EST)
Loot System: Individual Rolls (the current flex/lfr loot style)
This raid will be up to 30 people in size. No signups, no requirement to be there EVERY WEEK. Just whoever shows up, gets invited on a first come first served (with exception of any support roles we need.) The new twist for this raid in WoD will be that after we're full clearing in one night, we will start working on 1 achievement for the meta achievement per week. We wont dedicate a ton of time to doing these acheivements, more of a "let's see if we can't kill the boss this way."
Raiding in WoD may be mostly about Orcs again, but that doesn't mean it can't be a great time! Check out the Mythics, and spread the word, we are looking for raiders to join!

It's uncanny how often our last pull of the night ends up being fruitful. It went from, "This is frickin unhealable" (with nashing of teeth) to "Did we just down this boss?!" Good to have Purple back after a 2 week hiatus, ha.
Thanks Elapsed for some strat pointers on Sunday too!
