Prime is an alliance-side raiding guild on Ysera that has weathered over six years of progress. Our members are expected to have the raiding skills to prevail and the social skills to succeed with grace. More than half of our members have been with us for over a year and raid at least 80% of the time.
We believe that the backbones of our operation deserve first dibs at the experiences and rewards our raids have to offer. Therefore, our top rank confers privileges for raid invitation and loot priority. Our raiders meet tough but fair requirements for raid performance and attendance. Prime's players put in effort outside raids to maximize our limited raid time.
Our current raid schedule is:
Monday - 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern Time
Tuesday - 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Thursday - 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Sunday - 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.

On to the news. . . .
We are officially announcing that we will be stepping into Mythic raiding for Warlords of Draenor. Like many other strict 10 man guilds, the news of 20 man raiding came to a shock. While we were once a 25 man guild during TBC and Wrath, we settled on the 10 man format in Cata because it allowed leadership a much needed break from the stresses of managing and recruiting a large group of people.
The other fact is 10 man raiding allowed Prime to have a more loyal and close knit group of players that stuck with it for many normal and heroic boss kills. We felt the 10 man was giving us the challenge we sought after, but with a group of raiders that wanted to raid in Prime.
Prime has always looked at the long term and the value of the person behind their character. In the last couple of years, 10 man has been fun. We retained players far longer than compared to 25 man. However, now it's once again time to look at the long term.
Prime is 7 years old and has a long history on Ysera. Traditionally, we've also stepped into the hardest content in the game, even if we may not finish by the end of the tier. We value hard mode raiding as a guild, as content we like to experience and do not want to give up. Despite our collective kicking and screaming about having to once again manage a larger group size, not to mention difficulties in recruiting, we knew that for the guild to continue raiding the content we like to do we will have to move to 20 man raiding.
Settling just on the renamed normal and heroic modes is not enough for us. We want to do hard mode raiding like we've been doing since Wrath. For the sake of the continued longevity of Prime and our values, we will step into Mythic raiding next expansion.
There are some difficulties, however. I will not list them because all you have to do is read any discussion on the WoW forums about this change.
We have a plan of action that will hopefully get us the players we need. Things have been difficult in the last month for us as we experience short term roster issues such as temporary schedule changes, lateness, absences, and a couple people leaving us. It happens and we've been through this many times. We are still here. We will continue to strive to get done what we can do while we look for the next raiders that will be with us for the long term.
If you are interested in raiding with Prime please submit an application.
In the next update I will discuss our future plans for our activity on the server and building that roster to be Mythic ready.
It's been a long while since I last updated the (non-progression widget portion of the) front page. We have a new design courtesy of Sosa, and we just closed out the tier before 5.2 hit, so it seem an appropriate time for an update.
As the first expansion wherein we have been solely a 10 man guild, there have been some ups and downs as is expected in such matters, with real life issues and roster fluctuations at times affecting forward progress. However, as we have always done in our over six and a half year career on this server, we mustered forward, recruited some excellent folks, and generally refused to give up or back down in the face of adversity.
So, at the end of the first raiding tier, we ended up at 6/6H, 6/6N, 4/4N. I want to express my thanks for the good work done by all in making sure we got MV completed on heroic in time for the Cutting Edge feat of strength.
Going forward, we look like we are in pretty good shape to tackle the challenges of the new tier and tiers to follow. This of course comes from our dedicated and loyal squad of raiders who know how to buckle down under adversity, and won't quit or shy away when under pressure, keeping the team moving ever forward towards success.
