For additional information on how the ranks work, please see that section in the guild info.  If you believe there has been a mistake, feel free to reply below and I'll look into it.

If you are a regular raider (ie, you raid as and when you can, at least once or twice a month, and are an active guild member) and you're in the Wolf or Wolf Alt rank (prior to today), then please let me know and I'll check to see if you can be moved to the Werewolf rank.  Remember .. Werewolf is on a "per character" basis and resets every expansion.

If you have ANY character in the Werewolf, Wolf or Wolf Alt rank, and have alts invited into the guild, please remind an officer to promote your new character to the Wolf Alt rank.  Once you have reached the "Wolf" rank, all additional characters should automatically be given the Wolf Alt rank.  (and when I say "automatically" .. I mean we still have to do it manually, but it's not something your new character has to work for )

Since the changes to the way the roster and permissions work, it is much more difficult to ensure characters are correctly linked.  Whereas previously anyone with invite rights also were able to adjust your public roster note in order to add your "main" when you had an alt invited, this is now not possible.  The only people able to amend you public note now are you, when you're on that character, or an officer. 

Characters that have nothing in their public notes linking them to other characters are much more likely to be removed for inactivity (As all linked characters are checked for activity prior to removal for inactivity). 

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.

Please also do not add anything in the public note section of your alts, other than the "main" character name.  You may, if you wish, add your real name against your "main" - but no other information.  Gear scores, roles, etc .. all often change and should not be included.  See the Guild Rules for additional information.

Patch 8.2 arrives 26th June!

by Poisonenvy, 7 days ago

 

 

So suddenly the release of the new patch is almost upon us .. 26th June for those of us on EU servers:

The new raid will not be released straight away, but will come a couple of weeks after, in July.

Wowhead has the following to say:

This new content patch will include two new zones, Nazjatar and Mechagon. Each zone comes with a large zone to explore and two new reputations per faction to acquire reputation for (Rustbolt Resistance and  The Unshackled /  Waveblade Ankoan). Exploring the continent and acquiring Revered with each of your faction's new reputations will earn you Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part Two, allowing you to fly in all of Battle for Azeroth's zones!

The Heart of Azeroth will also play a larger role in this patch with a full quest chain and the brand new Heart of Azeroth Essence system. This patch also comes with mount equipment, the continuation of the War Campaign, Heroic Warfronts, two new Island Expeditions, Heritage Armor for Tauren and Gnomes and the Stratholme Pet Dungeon.

More content in coming two weeks later on July 9th when Season 3 of Battle for Azeroth begins. This marks the opening of the new Azshara's Eternal Palace Raid, new PvP Season and new Mythic+ Seasonal Affix, Beguiling. Season 3 will also come with an overall Item Level increase, with Mythic Azshara's Eternal Palace dropping Item Level 445 Gear and an increased Item Level from Mythic+. Season 3 also increases the number of available Essences, as many Essences will only be obtainable once Season 3 begins.

Classic WoW

by Poisonenvy, 17 days ago

 

As many of you know, Blizzard are soon going to be launching their Classic servers (end of August).  These are going to be free to access to anyone who has a current WoW subscription.

https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/wowclassic

Around two weeks prior to launch, you will be able to reserve up to three character names:

If you’re eager to claim your character name in WoW Classic, take note: we’ll be opening character creation on Tuesday, August 13.** Players with an active subscription or game time on their account will be able to create up to three characters per World of Warcraft account. We’ll have more information on realm names closer to launch, but rest assured—you’ll have plenty of time to figure out your plans for realm domination!

Depending on interest, we will be considering creating a Dark Wolves guild in Classic too.  It will be a Horde guild but as we don't know what realms will be available yet, we can't make that decision until we do.  Keep checking the website and discord for information closer to the time.

If you'd be interested in helping to create/join a Dark Wolves Classic guild, please let us know by voting in the forum poll:

Judoon .. New Guild Officer

by Poisonenvy, 20 days ago

I've been considering for some time the need for an additional officer .. and have over recent weeks discussed this with our current officers.  Following various discussions in Discord where the potential need for a new officer was raised, we decided to act on our intentions, and approached one of our long-standing (and long suffering!) guild members with the suggestion of perhaps taking on that role. 

Judoon has been a rock for the guild for many years now .. showing that he's helpful, calm under pressure and good humoured .. and importantly understands the way our guild works.

He was therefore kind enough, and brave enough, to accept our offer .. so please join us in congratulating him .. and please be gentle with him :p

Roster Updates - Removals

by Poisonenvy, 23 days ago

The following roster updates have been made today:


Removed for inactivity (including all alts):

Xenkai, Feltulip, Barbarea, Luhaine, Uriel, Iburnzdk, Ironfury, Maltalin, Dragonasha, Klandestyn, Forcedmage, Palliedin, Ogrian, Metalcoat, Kirito, Kholzeye, Rujar, Meijiani, Stulaxio, Firework, Hardoxnai, Ayreon, Monksea, Khorak.

Transferred to MiA rank (all alts removed):

Mscowiespet, Nibaru.


For additional information on how the ranks work, please see that section in the guild info.  If you believe there has been a mistake, feel free to reply below and I'll look into it.

If anyone removed above wishes to return, you're welcome to submit a new application.  Anyone placed in MiA is welcome to have their alts re-invited into the guild on their return.

Since the changes to the way the roster and permissions work, it is much more difficult to ensure characters are correctly linked.  Whereas previously anyone with invite rights also were able to adjust your public roster note in order to add your "main" when you had an alt invited, this is now not possible.  The only people able to amend you public note now are you, when you're on that character, or an officer. 

Characters that have nothing in their public notes linking them to other characters are much more likely to be removed for inactivity (As all linked characters are checked for activity prior to removal for inactivity). 

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.

Please also do not add anything in the public note section of your alts, other than the "main" character name.  You may, if you wish, add your real name against your "main" - but no other information.  Gear scores, roles, etc .. all often change and should not be included.  See the Guild Rules for additional information.
