LFR + 1

In this lull time between the end of Cataclysm and the opening of MoP, a number of us are looking into other means to keep the game alive. I've started actively participating in arenas, but I've also signed up on a couple external Looking for Raid sites. These websites allow anyone to setup a raid and invite people to come along, without having to spam Trade channel.



OpenRaid.US - is still in beta, but based on my 'main' character selection, I get a nicely formatted message weekly.

For example:

Raids for Elkagorasa (not your preferred character? Change it via 'Characters')
Firelands 10 HC 6/7
Sat 3 March 2012 @ 15:00 - 18:30 (servertime)
An extreme raid doing heroic raids
Clear all firelands boss in heroic difficulty with Ragnaros normal. Depending on the group, a weekl...

A social/fun raid doing heroic raids

Ulduar 25 AchievementRun
Sat 3 March 2012 @ 17:00 - 20:00 (servertime)
A semi-hardcore raid doing hard achievements
Try to do all Achievements!Not the drake!
Sign up now, there are still 22 spots left!




WowPugs.com - this site has a prettier interface, let's you sign in with your facebook account (if you wish) and even has integration for IRC chat. Only problem I see, no Malfurion - US raids going on (yet!).


I don't know about you, but this could be interesting. A lot of the OpenRaid announcements have been for Achievement runs, or Hunter Legendary runs. If you don't have an active Guild, or simply want to try running older/different content than currently, this (looks) like a great way to find some people to play.
