The OP is talking about SM EC and SM TfB, a raid leader plugging in a few PUGs has the right to ask whatever they want in the minimum they will require out of a pug to join their group. So 1800 mainstat isnít too much to ask if that is what the raid leader and his/her regular group members are comfortable with out of a PUG. That is not saying a skilled person could not do it with a lot less stats,
Stopped reading about there. The whole point
of this thread is to ask if the requirement is reasonable, not to ask if they have the right to ask for it. Ofcourse the raid leader has final say on the requirements, but are they rasonable? That's what's being discussed here.
