The Gears of Raiding

A bluprint for beating the toughest enounters SOE has to offer and have fun doing it

Raiding in Everquest II may be one of the more complicated endeavors that a player or set of players can undertake in the MMO genre. The breadth of considerations are numerous but, I am going to attempt to cover a number of topics that all revolve around raiding, some of which are Leadership, Strategy, Tactics, Tools and Mechanics. Raiding is one facet of Everquest II where the players and leaders alike often find themselves outside the game engaging in planning and preparation activities to the greatest degree. Over the course of this article I will cover all aspects of raiding and will writing from my observations and experiences both leading and being a participant of raids. It should go without saying that all players who have had the occasion to lead, setup, and run a raid have their own style or flare so consider while reading that mine is just one of many.
