  • Not kill steal, spam, insult, or bad mouth players, GMs or chat channels, or do anything that reflects negatively upon the reputation of the guild or its members.
  • Discrimination or slander based on race, gender, religion, sexual preference or anything that is not accepted in real life. This type of behavior will not be tolerated, and will warrant IMMEDIATE removal from the guild.

  • Have a thick skin. Guild chat may at times become crude – we ask that you not take offense to things that are meant as a joke. Hoewver, any over-the-top cruel and or otherwise harassing comments will not be tolerated.
  • Handle any/all issues as an adult. If you do not know the meaning of this, then this is not the guild for you.

Leadership

The guild has a Guild Master, currently Seräph. He has complete authority, but is required to listen to every Vice President and Officer before making important decisions. The Vice Presidents and Officers have the role of adviser to the Guild Master, and to help out in daily tasks.

The tasks of the Guild Master, Vice Presidents, and Officers include (but is not limited to):

  • Recruitment
  • Organizing PvE and PvP raids
  • Leading 10 man and 25 man PvE raids
  • Moderating the forum and TeamSpeak
  • Communication between Members and Guild Master
  • Mediation in case of a dispute between Members
  • Stocking the guild bank with materials
  • Recording attendance of raiders

 

Warlord and Officers

Warlord and Officers are chosen by Seräph, and his advisors to best represent the guild and make sure things run smoothly. Warlords and Officers are never to treat any Member with disrespect or malicious intent. Doing so could result in demotion, or removal from the guild.

 

Core Healer / Tank / Damage

The Core Raider rank is the progression oriented raid group. They raid Tues/Weds from 8:30PM to 11:00PM server weekly. Members of the Core Raider rank are required to have at least 90% attendance. If they are unable to do so for a short period of time, they need to notify the leadership via the Members or Raiders thread on the guild forum. If they are unable or unwilling to keep up 80% attendance for a long period, they will risk getting demoted to Raid Standby and or Social.

 

Raid Standby

Raid Standby is a rank for those that have either been demoted from a higher rank, or who do not quite have the gear or knowledge required for current content progression. In the event that there is a shortage of members for a raid, or we are in a position to carry, then it will typically be someone from the Raid Standby group who has shown initiative that will be brought into a raid.

 

Trial

Trials are members who are new to the guild looking to be placed into their appropriate group after evaluation. They have to adhere to the same attendance rules as the raid team. If they do not keep up 80% attendance, they will be removed from the guild unless special circumstances apply. As a trial member, tier gear is forfeited to senior members of the guild.

 

Alt

ALTs of any member that is in the guild. ALTs do not have repairs or guild banking privileges.

 

Social

The Social rank is for friends and family of the members. The Socials have no rights nor obligations to raid.

 

Recruitment

Raid applicants must be max level, be outfitted to match the guild’s needs (Class, Gear, Talents, etc), and be able to keep up at least 80% attendance. The minimum age is 18. Recruitment is currently the responsibility of the guild leadership; however, members are asked to recommend any strong players. Any new recruit that is added to the guild is given the rank of Trial. After approximately 1 week a topic will be created on the forum where the Trial’s positive and negative aspects can be discussed. After at least 1 week, the Recruit will be either promoted to an established rank or removed from the guild. The leadership ultimately decides at their discretion. Leadership reserves the right to request that the recruit come back another week for further consideration if it is deemed appropriate.

 

Raiding

You are not allowed to join non-guild raids during established guild raid times as mentioned above. You are expected to join at least 80% of the raids. If you are unable to join the raid for a longer period, please notify the leadership beforehand. If you do not, you risk getting demoted to Social, or removed from the guild. You are expected to be ready prior to raid time, this includes but is not limited to: having all enchants, gems, flasks, pots, runes, seals, and food ready to go. You are expected to be online and ready to accept invites at least 5 minutes prior to the start of raid. To improve raid efficiency, the leadership may remove and invite guild members of any rank to the raid at any time.

 

Loot Rules

Currently all gear is distributed via a free roll in conjunction with suggested passes. What this means is that if you win a roll, you win the roll; however, if we see that loot is a much larger upgrade for another member we may ask that you defer loot and recieve priority for the next piece regardless of your roll. It is your choice to defer the loot for the betterment of the overall guild. There is no right or wrong answer, however we are always looking for more team players. During a trial, tier is on reserve for the core members.  If no one in the core needs a piece of tier that drops, it will then go to Trials.

You are not allowed to:

  • Roll on an item you cannot use
  • Roll on an item you will never use
  • Roll on an item that is completely unsuitable for your class or spec
  • Roll for friends
  • Trade items you won to another player. (Or make them pay for it)
  • Sell an item you won
  • Exploit or disrupt or upset the system
  • Whisper someone and make them feel bad for winning an item because you wanted it

All members have the same status when it comes to receiving loot. If no one wants an item, it will be sharded and placed in the Guild Bank. After obtaining a new item through a vote you are responsible for enchanting / gemming it as soon as possible, and you must use the item for either your main or offspec.

 

Attendance

Attendance is maintained for each member each quarter of the year (3 month blocks). You can gain up to 1 attendance point per raid for being online and ready to raid. Having an attendance rating under 80% will result in a demotion and eventual removal from the guild. Attendance scores will determine who will sit out, or come along in a raid over capacity. Long term members will always have priority over a new member when it comes to raid positions. This is enforced by marking any new members absent for all raids in the quarter that occurred before their join date. Additional points to consider:

  • Attendance is only counted for core raid days (currently Tue & Wed) for those with any rank other than Social, or Alt.
  • Your attendance score is accessable on the guild website after logging in.
  • You will be marked absent in the following cases:
    • You are not online for the raid. If you will be missing 3 or more consecutive raids for personal reasons please contact an officer.
    • You are online for a raid and not in the main raid group, but you were unresponsive to invitations to the main raid group when you were needed.
    • You log off before the designated raid end time.
    • You are offline for more than 20% of the duration of the raid.
  • You will lose a half point (.5) for the raid day in the following cases:
    • You arrive 5+ minutes late for a raid.
    • You are offline for total of 20% or less of the duration of the raid.
