Following conversations with Samsara, we have now agreed on a date for our joint 40 man LFR raid into Molten Core for the 10th Anniversary event.
As it is reasonable to assume that most people will need a few weeks to level and gear up following the expansion launch, we decided to hold the event during December. Samsara requested we hold the event on a Wednesday as it is the day of the week they tend to have more people available to raid - which generally seems to be the case for us as well, so I have agreed to this.
This then excluded the last two weeks in December, as they were Christmas Eve and New Years Eve .. some people may possibly have plans in the real world for those nights
We have therefore settled on the 10th December at the usual Samsara raid start time of 9pm server time. This also gives us the possibility of pushing the raid back a week if not enough people are ready, or even possibly doing it a second time, if people feel the urge
Please sign up on the calendar if you would like to attend and hope to be ready in time.
In respect of communication during the event .. neither ourselves nor Samsara currently have a server big enough to host 40 people. Samsara are initially going to look into extending their server temporarily for the event, however, if they are unable to, we will organise it ourselves.
More information regarding this, closer to the time.
Please note that currently we are still using our Ventrilo server as default. You will be notified of any change to that once we have organised and tested the alternative thoroughly, and had time to create a guide.
Yes folks, it seems like it's that time again ... time to remind people of our rules!
Recently we have had a few invites to the guild that have been made in error .. someone in the guild has been contacted out of the blue by a random person, and they've ended up inviting them into the guild.
Our policy is that ALL potential new members must fill in an application form on this site. It is then able to be viewed, verified and replied to.
The reason we do this is in order to reduce Drama in the guild .. it weeds out those who can't be bothered to fill out forms, who just want a quick invite to see what they can steal or beg off people, those who are obviously looking for a completely different type of guild, those who mislead or lie, and those who have been with us before and have caused drama and bad blood in the past.
We pride ourselves on a lack of drama in the guild .. and this simple process is a big reason why that is so.
The only reason someone should be invited into the guild without an application form, is if they are known personally, in "real life" by a current member. That way the guild member will have been able to assess whether both parties would be a good fit.
If in doubt, please ask .. but if anyone approaches you for a guild invite, unless they say "I'm an alt of [current guild member]", please ask them to fill in an application form on this website. If you have any problem with this, please simply refer them to either myself or one of the officers.
On a related matter .. please be aware that I and my officers are around to deal with any problems. We deal with the drama, the organising, the admin and all the stuff that goes along with that. We deal with the majority of this quietly and in the background. When something happens that doesn't seem right to you, please let us know IN PRIVATE so that we can deal with it quietly. Again .. we pride ourselves on our lack of drama .. which can often be caused by guild members "trying to help" when things go wrong. It is very nice that you try to help, but basically it just makes matters more complicated to deal with.
If a problem arises in a raid group, then the raid leader will deal with it. If you are unhappy with something, or unhappy with the way things are handled, speak privately to the raid leader (bearing in mind that, if you have noticed something, others probably have too, so the raid leader may have to deal with multiple whispers at once) - or if it can, let it wait until after the raid/a break in the raid.
Please ensure that, prior to any complaints made, the information you are basing the complaint on is correct and verified (and provable, if necessary).
If you feel you can help the leadership team (myself, Kad, Jay and Hoe), please contact us in private .. do not suddenly decide to take matters into your own hands. And certainly not when it is something that doesn't need dealing with immediately.
Last night gave some indication as to the numbers we may possibly expect for the new, flexible raiding in Warlords of Draenor .. basically demonstrating that a 15 slot Ventrilo server would no longer be enough.
I have therefore now increased that to a 30 slot server which, hopefully, should hold us for some time (especially bearing in mind that the next jump in slot numbers is a fairly big one).
Most of the recent expenditure has either been covered by previous donations made to the guild paypal account, or I have covered it myself, however, even taking into account an additional recent donation (thank you!), we are still getting rather low on funds.
Can I therefore ask anyone who can to simply donate a small amount using our "Donate" button on the right hand side of the Home Page. It is quick and easy to use.
The costs for running the various aspects of the guild presence are as follows:
In order to have a rough idea of what to expect numbers-wise for our raids in the next expansion, we have a forum post that I'd like everyone (even those who don't intend to raid) to read and respond to:
This is certainly worth bearing in mind if you want to raid with us but your character is elsewhere ... there is usually a minimum guild member requirement for guild achievements in raids/instances so those characters actually in the guild will always receive priority (assuming that will still be the case in the coming expansion).
The Holiday this year has been updated with ilevel 540 loot plus several new rewards, including new battle pets and "costumes". WowHead has put together a guide:
Hallow's End (October 18 - November 1)
It's that time of the year again--ghosts and goblins, witches and warlocks unite! Hallow's End hits Azeroth today.
Hallow's End is one of my favorite holidays in World of Warcraft. Running from from October 18 - November 1, the holiday invites players to gather candy, wands, food, masks, and even vanity pets from inn keepers all over the in-game world.
After a draught of holiday updates, Hallow's End has some new loot in 2014!
Hallow's End loot is now ilvl 540, to get players ready for Warlords of Draenor. Inside the Loot-Filled Pumpkin, you can find:
The Garrosh attempt that was on the guild calendar for that day has now been removed and I would strongly advise no-one arrange or expect to do anything major that day, as this is a BIG patch that covers a lot of changes - together with all the potential bugs that may follow such a large patch.
Anyone who doesn't have the achievement/mount for killing Garrosh on Normal/Heroic, and wants it, I'd suggest that now might be an excellent time to go find a group who can help.
Additional entries have been made in the guild calendar for Flex runs on a Friday (and we may add more for alts) ... as after the patch the first kill of Garrosh on any difficulty is guaranteed to drop a relevant heirloom (per character, per difficulty level).
Also keep an eye out in guild for runs to the short-term level 90 5 man instance in Upper Blackrock Spire, which will drop ilevel 550 loot.
You can read more about what to expect next week at Wowhead.
