As we're now heading into a new expansion, the Werewolf (raider) rank has now been reset. All characters from that rank have now been returned to their relevant Wolf/Wolf Alt ranks.
Once we start raiding again in Legion, any characters in the Wolf/Wolf Alt ranks that qualify to be placed in the Werewolf rank, will be done so.
More information regarding this rank can be found in our Raiding Rules.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask
Can I please remind people that they are required to read the Guild Rules and, even if they don't know them off by heart, have a working knowledge of the general gist of the rules. If you're not sure about something, please do refer to the rules (or ask an officer or high ranking guild member).
Today I've had to remove someone from the guild as they had removed multiple stacks of items from multiple sections of the guild vault, irrelevant to their character class or professions, some of which was then discovered on the Auction House for resale.
Regardless of your access rights and which sections of the vault you have access to, the standard guild rule applies:
Fair Use Policy: The guild bank vault is just that, a bank vault for the benefit of members of the guild. Please DO NOT remove items from the vault to benefit other characters not in the guild, or for resale. All items withdrawn by a member must be for the sole benefit of that member (or the guild), either something that member will wear or utilise in some way personally. If you are unsure, please ask prior to withdrawal.
For further information on how the guild vault works, including access rights, please read the Guild Vault section in our guild rules. As stated there, each rank has certain access rights. As long as you adhere to the fair use policy (above), then if you're able to remove something from the vault, you're welcome to do so - you don't need to ask. If you're unable to remove something from the vault in a specific section that is due to your guild rank. Please don't ask for items that are inaccessible to you.
If you need clarification, feel free to reply below and I'll do my best
As we're fast approaching the end of the current expansion and the launch of Legion, I've now had the promised roster "Spring clean".
The following members (and any alts) have been removed from the guild roster due to long term inactivity. If any of those removed feel they have been removed by accident (for example if they have been active on another character in guild that was overlooked/not linked to the ones removed) please let me know.
If anyone wishes to return to the guild, they're welcome to resubmit an application as usual.
Banuhi, Reeva, Korthalon, Josey, Azmiara, Kryxus, Skurai, Ygrassan, Mashhour, Kamisama, Ekitai, Lindale, Guliath, Mordochai,Azerick, Knurt, Blestematoru, Manolom, Futuresimon, Antonia, Galhan, Anon, Zepheris, Yinshia, Rainyskies, Ophiuchus, Zordoran, Riizuel, Carcus, Aztti, Shozaki, Ongarnos, Broxigar, Guvosh, Dedonrival, Royaldoom, Pandialla, Kaylee, Padmei.
There are a few others that, strictly speaking, should also have been removed but had "only" been inactive for 6-8 months and I considered potentially they may be back - however I'll assume those members will not be coming back if they don't arrive back within the next few weeks.
If you're interested to know when you last logged in on a character, you can visit it on the Armories and scroll to the bottom, where it will say "last updated on ...". Unfortunately the search doesn't seem to work very well on the Armories at the moment so it's best to visit a character page you can find, and then amend the link. For example:
.. changing the "realm" to mazrigos or lightbringer, and the "name" to the name you're looking for.
Despite having a name we hate to spell (or say!) - we got this guy down tonight .. well done everyone!
This marks the end of a very successful expansion raid-wise - long may it continue.
Of course that's not to put our achievements outside of raiding into second place - the guild is going from strength to strength. We've gained more people - more great, friendly people who fit in brilliantly with our slightly quirky way of doing things and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for being a great asset, regardless of what your interests in-game may be.
I'm looking forward to joining you all in our battle against the Legion ... For the Horde!!!!!
As the Loot rules in-game changed fairly recently in respect of duplicate Personal Loot, we've updated our raiding loot rules to take this into account.
The new rules are as follows:
Loot is usually dealt with using the "Personal Loot" system. This means that any loot you find is yours and personal to you.
If you gain loot that is transferrable to another member of the raid group (either Bind on Equip (BoE) or transferrable Personal Loot) then you have the choice of either keeping it or donating it.
If you chose to donate it, it should be passed to the Loot Master (the raid leader unless otherwise stated), at which point it will be open for Need/Greed rolls from the raid group as per the Master Loot System (see below for an explanation of Need/Greed).
If no-one in the raid wants the item:
- BoE loot will be placed in the Guild Vault.
- Non-BoE loot will be disenchanted if possible, or sold. The resultant materials/funds will be added to the guild vault.
To review the raiding rules in full, including the explanation of the Need/Greed system, please use this link.

As we're fast approaching Legion I'm giving people prior warning that, at some point in the next few weeks or so, I'll be having a late "Spring clean" of the roster - any member that has not been online for 6 months or more (2 months or more for those in the bottom rank) is potentially likely to be removed from the roster.
Please note that this is any MEMBER, not character. If you have characters that haven't been on for months or years, as long as they have a note in the roster notes that they're your alt, and you've been online within 6 months (or 2 months if none of your characters are above bottom rank) on ANY of your marked alts or main, then don't worry, you'll be safe.
Therefore, please ensure all alts are marked as such, correctly. If you have any problems or questions, let me know.
If you are currently having a break from the game, are still in the guild and wish to remain in the guild, and think your characters may possibly qualify for removal, please let me know and I'll ensure they are kept.
I will also start looking at removing those in the "MiA" list, working on the assumption that, if people were going to come back to the game after a considerable time away, the new expansion would be the time to do so.
Anyone currently on the MiA list, who isn't intending to come back within the next week, but still wishes to remain a member, please let me know.
Anyone who is completely removed from the guild, who wishes to return, will need to reapply in the usual way on this website (although there will be a week or so grace period where they can speak to me for a re-invite, just in case someone got removed by accident!).
Please note - once Legion arrives and we are no longer at "max level", all characters currently in the "Werewolf" rank will be placed back in their relevant Wolf/Wolf Alt ranks.
The Werewolf rank will then be repopulated once we start raiding, and we see who is eligible to be there.
ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING ANY OF THE ABOVE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW
Congratulations everyone - another successful Dark Wolves raid - lots of deaths (some of them not ours!), lots of fun - and I'm pretty sure someone mentioned raiding naked! (It wasn't me, honest ).
Looking forward to our last couple of raids for this expansion - hopefully we can maintain our boss kill run to finish off the final two that we've not yet done on heroic.
Regardless of whether or not we do, we've had a good run - well done!
