We waltzed into normal mode eternity vault last night with the first 8 people in our guild to hit lvl 50 and who were online, which were 1 tank, 3 healers, and 5 dps, all in gear not much better than what we got from leveling.

We died more to bugs than to boss mechanics. In 2 hours of goofing off, waiting around, randomly dropping dead, waiting for 1 person to run back all the way to the bridge of the ship to repair, etc, we killed the first 4 bosses. The one thing that gave us the most trouble was the turrets at the beginning, until we read that you can cc one of them.

So, long story short, normal mode in 8 man is completely pugable. Don't be scared of it. Are they necessary? No, no more than doing ANYTHING in a game is necessary. If you want the associated rewards, then yes, they're necessary.

Also, I never buy into the posts that say "I don't have time for raiding or being in a guild". If you think that you don't have time to raid or that you can't join a guild, you need to find a new guild. We have raids at set times 3 nights a week, and we make a raid out of who shows up. If you're busy, no problem. We show up when we can, have fun, and collect loot.

There are LOTS of guilds out there like this, and worst case is if you can't find one, start your own.
