For additional information on how the ranks work, please see that section in the guild rules. If you believe there has been a mistake, feel free to reply below and I'll look into it.
If anyone regularly raids and was already (prior to today) at the Wolf/Wolf Alt rank, and wasn't placed in the Werewolf rank, please let me know. Anyone who regularly raids and who has been promoted today to the Wolf/Wolf Alt rank will then be reviewed at the next set of promotions.
Apologies for the length of time it's taken to get the roster promotions sorted .. I'll try to get the next one done sooner
I will also, at some point in the near future, be looking at removing some members who have been inactive for a considerable period of time. Please do ensure that all your alts are marked up as such on your public note in the guild roster to prevent any being removed by accident.
As we've had a lot of discussion about this recently, and some obviously missed the forum post where I mentioned it .. please see below my intentions for our raiding going forward:
- Wednesday 26th September. Same as this week .. Normal Uldir, 340+ ilevel.
- Friday 28th September. Same as this week. Continuation Uldir Normal if we don't finish on Wednesday, Heroic if we do. 340+ ilevel.
- Wednesday 3rd October. Uldir Heroic. 355+ ilevel. (I realise .. for those who read the forum post .. that I'd suggested 350 for this, but that seems unfair).
- Friday 5th October. Uldir Normal. 340+ ilevel.
The latter two will continue until we feel the need to change again.
The reasoning behind the first two dates is simply because they were already up on the calendar and it felt unfair (and difficult to manage) a change in requirements/level once people had started signing up.
It's also worth noting that we have only done a few weeks of Uldir Normal and, to be honest, we've kinda cheesed some of the tactics .. which means we do need more practice. And it's easier to practice getting tactics right on Normal than Heroic.
If you are unsure of any of the tactics .. you felt you were taking too much damage, or confused about something, etc .. please do review the tactics prior to turning up.
Please do check the requirements needed for any raid, ensure that AT THE VERY LEAST you have flasks, and the smaller enchants/gems for everything that can take them. Ideally we should be starting to get into the position where we can use the maximum gems/enchants, although I realise that can still be a bit difficult.
Please do not sign for a raid unless you have every intention of attending, from the very start to the very end, and that you fulfil the gear/preparation requirements. If you find you've signed for a raid but then cannot make it .. let us know!!!!
Please ensure you're on the raiders list and, if you main spec a healer or a tank, that you're on the respective rota. You can view those here:
There is a forum post linked from the Raiders Lists page, giving more information on how to add your name to the list by filling in the form:
If you want to be added or removed from the raiders list, please fill in that form. If you would like your entry adjusting (change of role, for example) please use that form. Please ensure you include your "main" name (remember, this is just the "main" name given to you on our roster in-game, it doesn't necessarily actually have to be your "main" ... usually this is the first character you joined us with) as well as the character name you're wanting adding/removing/amending.
If you're unsure .. ask. We know there's a lot of info, and it can be confusing .. better to ask and we're happy to help.
Blizzard are giving a free "pirate ship" mount away (and its "special action" involves firing its cannons!) to everyone who pays for 6 month game time. This includes those who already have a rolling 6 monthly subscription, as well as those who buy it through the store.
The 6 months costs the same as normal, the price is not inflated .. so free mount!
Remember to check your Gifts section on your launcher if you already pay for a six monthly subscription.
This is a time-limited thing .. it ends on the 21st October.
We've had a few returning members recently .. some who were still in the guild in the MiA rank, but others who had been removed for long term inactivity, or left, previously.
Please take note of our guild rules in this respect:
Any members who leave the guild (for whatever reason) and wish to return, must first contact an Alpha or Beta of the guild for permission to re-join. We reserve the right to refuse reinstatement into the guild without explanation (although usually it is fairly obvious!). Should a returning member join without the permission of an Alpha or Beta they risk the possibility of removal from the guild without warning. Generally we expect returning members who no longer have any characters in the guild to reapply via the website application form, mentioning their previous membership and, if possible, the name of at least one (main) character that used to be a member of the guild.
If you have had a name change or wish to bring in an Alt, please let us know.
Any returning members will join at the Pup rank again and will be treated as any other new member in respect of promotions, access to banks, etc.
To speed this process up, we're happy for people to simply reapply via the website, bypassing the "ask permission" bit .. because applying implies asking permission anyway. Although we're happy for people to contact us to ask advice, etc ... especially if it's been a while, or they're applying with a character we might not necessarily remember.
So .. if someone asks for an invite into the guild be sure they either (a) currently have a character in the guild (and if they do, ensure they add their "alt of" public note), or (b) have an accepted application on our website.
If you're unsure .. don't invite them and refer them to myself or one of the officers. Those who have a legitimate reason to ask for an invite should be fine being asked to wait for confirmation first.
Blimey, what a night! Not only did we clear Uldir Normal .. but we then went on to down the first two bosses on heroic! We weren't necessarily all 100% erm .. not dead .. but that doesn't matter. What does matter is that Niknax managed to resist the urge to press that big button :p
Congratulations everyone .. a new boss down! One more to go for the full clear
