As we've had quite a few newer members join recently, and I've been getting a lot of questions about the upcoming new raid, I thought I'd put down a quick guide on what people should do to prepare, and what they should know, prior to raiding.
- Go to our discord #role-selection channel and grab yourself the @Raider role.
- Visit discord regularly. Ideally have it set so that you get notifications when the raider role is pinged.
- Make sure you READ the information in the #faq , #raiding_rules , #raiding , #guild-raids channels on Discord - check the pins, keep an eye on conversations.
- Have Teamspeak set up, ready to use, with "push to talk" set, on our teamspeak server.
- Check the calendar in-game regularly, read the requirements for any events, be aware of start/end times, sign up if you want to go, ONLY when you fulfil requirements, and ONLY if you fully intend to be there for the full duration.
- Visit our resource site (https://www.darkwolves.info/) for information on how our raids work, what to expect and what to bring. Some leeway related to resources will be given, initially - please keep checking the #guild-raids Discord channel for updates.
- Please DON'T ask me questions about raids UNTIL you've done all the above. I haven't done it for the kicks n giggles .. I've done it because I have a lot of admin to do, plus I'm also trying to play/get raid ready, plus I have work and other stuff IRL. I don't have time to field the same questions over and over from dozens of different people.
We are all adults, who should be able to take responsibility for ourselves and do our own preparation. We can help, if needed, but it shouldn't be a one-sided transaction.
Please note that every raid will have a corresponding forum post on this website set up, with a run down of what is expected from raiders, information about the raid and it's requirements, and a list of those raiders accepted for a raid, along with their assigned role. PLEASE double check these posts if you're signed up, and let me know if anything is wrong.
