Progression is a marathon not a sprint, unless you’re Method. If you have the drive and dedication to play a game 12+ hours per day until you beat all of the hardest content then you can view the game as a sprint. Of course guilds like Method, Limit and Wildcard Gaming are the exception and not the rule. For the rest of us that fit comfortably in with the other average raiders, we take our progress and character progression week by week and lock out by lock out. For those not familiar with how raiding works let me go into a little more detail. Each raid typically has a lock out period where you can kill the bosses a get loot from their corpses. We then parade around town in our shiny new, possibly bloodstained and partially digested new set of armor (grotesque, I know). On a certain day of the week all of the bosses will “reset” which means they are alive again and able to be killed for another chance at that epic loot that you have your eye on. Why do we want to raid? For one, it how you usually get the best gear in your game and who doesn’t want to have the best stuff? Another reason is it’s fun fighting dragons and big giant mosters! These are games after all and having fun should be the primary objective. Third of all, you create friendships because you can’t kill dragons by yourself. We need to bring 20 of our friends and make sure we are able to handle many whelps. What keeps me coming back to raiding year after year for the past 15 years is the relationships that I build and the prospect of forming new bonds with my guildies.
So how does one get into Mythic Uldir? If your guild is new or your players are inexperienced with mythic content, you will want to start with the normal and heroic versions of Uldir first. My goal for our guild is to work our way to clearing the heroic version of Uldir in one raid night, which is three and a half hours for us. After clearing the heroic version of the raid for the week we are able to step into the mythic version and begin working on those bosses. We will want to continue to clear (defeat all the bosses in) heroic Uldir until we are killing 3-4 bosses in mythic. We continue to do the lower difficulty raid so that our group continues to get upgrades for their gear. Raiding is an all or nothing reward system, you do not get anything for trying to kill a boss, only when that boss is dead do you receive your reward. So it makes more sense to try and get the most bang for your buck in rewards for your raiders. The more gear you get, the easier the fights become and that is how you progress in raids.
Of course you need to know where Uldir is, in order to raid there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCYnicIAKcw
