Outer Ring

  • 4 Plagued Gargoyles
  • 16 Plagued Ghouls
  • 2 Spirits of Naxxramas
  • 12 Necropolis Acolytes

Rules:

  1. Using Traces of Silithyst will result in your parse being invalid and in your guild's complete raid rank being invalid.
  2. Rebuffing World Buffs will put your dps/healing complete raid rank in a "rebuffed" section. If you look at the "Waiting for 3min+ CDs" rules for BWL, we're going to do the same thing for Naxxramas. If you leave the raid to rebuff, your personal ranks will end up with that "rebuffed" flag set to indicate you went out and got fresh world buffs.
  3. There will be a 5 minute penalty to your speed run time for each swap you make in a raid. This will have no effect on DPS/HPS ranks, but is put in place to make sure speed runs only use 40 characters and don't abuse the ability to swap up to whatever limit we have set.
  4. With the above time penalty in place, we'll be raising the allowed number of raiders in a complete raid to 50.
  5. With the rules around rebuffing in place, the timeout for complete raids will be raised to 2 hours (up from 1 hour).
