    :laugh:

    We did ZF tonight... it was ridiculous how many problems we were having.

    We started out with a group of 5 people (4 clannies). We got as far as the scarabs.

    Then Ertai logged on and wanted to join, so I converted the group to a raid. Right when I did this, we all got a message saying, "You are not in the group for this instance and will be removed in 60 secs." Crap... back to Gadgetzan.

    We go back to the entrance, uninvite Ertai, enter the instance gate, same message. We leave again. We reform the group as a regular group, same message. We reform the group again under a different leader, the instance finally resets. We start the instance over.

    We get to post the scarabs and go to the miniboss with the basilisks. We run the cave and start AOEing. None of my AOE spells hit (I think this was a spell from the basilisks or boss). We all die.

    We go back to the instance, return to the cave where we died. We then turn around to go back to the scarab area. There is a basilisk blocking the entrance back to the scarab area. When we get within 20 yards of the basilisk, we hit some kind of force field that throws us back into the air. All 8 of us are bouncing off of this force field like crazy... weeeee!!! Somehow we manage to get around it, after which the basilisk disappears.

    Onto the big hydra boss! We agro a huge group on the way and die. We come back and kill the hydra boss, no scale for the people who needed the quest. Apparently this and other quests do not drop in a raid, only for regular groups. So we aren't able to complete any quests.

    non-raid quests cannot be completed in a raid. you used to be able to leave the group before the kill and still get credit, but they supposedly fixed that.

    Yeah, we just figured that out after many Fridays of quest problems. They should really have a warning message somewhere when you form a raid. :(

    Raid questing would make the quests so easy.

    Normal group = 5 people

    Raid group = 8 groups of 5 people = 40 people

    Oh there it is. Since no one in the guild knew about it, they need to make it a popup warning on raid creation.

    They also need a warning about being kicked from the instance when forming a raid while inside of the instance.

    I never really raided, so I never told anyone about it.

    A warning does pop up when saying that non-raid related quests can't be done and asks you if it is ok to join or something or rather.

    Right after being invited to a raid the warning pops up saying "Non-raid quests can't be completed when joining a raid. Do you wish to join?" or something like this instead of the usual, so-and-so "has invited you to join the group."
