Ask Gauss

So it is Sunday, which means it is time for Ask Gauss. The post of the week where I answer the questions you the readers have been sending me throughout the week. If you are unsure of how to send your questions, it is really simple. There is a link on the top right of the page you can click on or you can just email your questions to So without waiting any longer let's get to this week's questions.

So 10 or 25 man?

My guild is currently doing 25 man raids. Yes, they seem more difficult mostly because it seems to put more strain on the healers in the lower end gear more so than the DPS and tanks. I think though when gear starts to even itself out the balance between the 10 and 25 man raids will be much closer. Since my guild is currently raiding 3 days a week I have made the decision to make one of the off nights a learning night for encounters. On these nights I use the 10 man setup along with a bunch of people that would like to wipe. I use this raid to develop strats for the guild to better improve our 25 man performance. This not only gets people to see the encounters in a different light, but gives me free range to try things without it being a waste of time for the progression raids.

Thoughts on the new guild reputation and experience system.

Well to me it makes sense. There should be a benefit to having more people in a heroic that are in your guild. At the current moment there is no point in having more than 4 people in a heroic that are part of your guild. One thing to note is that they changed the minimum amount to 3 people rather than 4, which makes sense even more sense. Having 3 people means more than half of your group is part of your guild meaning it truly is a guild group. So congrats to Blizzard for making that fix. Now the more people in the group 3, 4, or 5 means more reputation and more experience, which is the way it always should have been. So good job to Blizzard on fixing their own mistake.

How about those Crawfish?

How about you go to hell.

That is it for this week. As always your question cannot be answered if you don't ask it. So send them in and put me on the spot. This coming week's Reader Post is going to be about some of your fun times in the new raiding content. As always you have until Thursday night to get them in. Enjoy what is left of your weekend.
