Big congratulations to our raiders tonight .. we got another boss down! We spent another night trying and, in some cases failing, not to fall off edges, or being hit by balls, but in the end, we got him.
Big congratulations to all our raiders - All that practice paid off, and we one-shot Painsmith Raznal tonight - nicely done!
As we have started in the new patch, we've also had some changes in guild.
Niknax (Klaus) is no longer going to be playing regularly and has been asked to be placed in the MiA rank, therefore he will no longer be an officer.
Shezbeth (Doug) is in the process of moving both irl and in game (with his main), as he and Sonskyn are planning on moving to another country and realm, so he also has retired his officer role.
Both are, of course, still welcome to remain in guild and join in there and in our discord. The usual guild rules do still apply.
Dark Wolves have benefited greatly from having them both on the officer team for a considerable length of time and will be sad to see them go, but understand that people move on to different interests and needs.
Potentially we may be looking for replacements at some point in the future - if that occurs, we'll either simply approach people and ask if they're interested, or we'll put out a post giving information on what we look for in an officer. In the meantime, if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask away.
Congratulations to all the raiders tonight .. everyone worked hard to be prepared and it paid off ... five new bosses down!!
Planning a purchase? Now is the time .. for a short time there are various pets, mounts and services at discounted prices.
The following roster updates have been made today:

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 have ANY character in the 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 ). If you do not have a character at the Wolf/Wolf Alt/Werewolf rank, then any alts invited into the guild should join as a Pup. Please ensure you have a note in your public notes in the roster, showing your "main" name.
If, prior to today, you were at the Wolf/Wolf Alt rank, and regularly raid, and feel you should be in the Werewolf rank, please let me know and I'll check for you.
Long term inactivates have also been removed (including any alts):
Aivy, Nheri, Cumeron, Erulith, Ouroboros, Takeastab, Lilios, Svizzera, Vertamaye, Yuna, Bearlyalive, Feltulip, Falanir, Masochist, Southman, Seraphstar, Thegreyarea.
"Inactives" are those who have not been online for a substantial period of time - usually 6+ months. Characters linked to others in the guild roster using the "Alt" public note are all checked to ensure that all characters have been inactive for some time.
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 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 your 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). Members who have not registered with this website are much more likely to be removed for inactivity.
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/nickname against your "main" - but no other information. Gear scores, roles, professions, etc .. all often change and should not be included. See the Guild Rules for additional information.
Anyone completely removed from the guild roster, who then wishes to rejoin the guild, are welcome to complete a new application form, where they are advised to mention they were a previous guild member.
Some long term inactives will occasionally be placed in the MiA (Missing in Action) rank. These are people who we feel (or have told us) they may come back, and were long term members prior to that. When someone is placed on MiA, only one character is kept in guild and the rest are removed, however, if/when they do return, they do not need to reapply, they will be moved out of MiA to Cub (instead of Pup as would have been the case if they'd been removed previously), and they can immediately request for their alts to be reinvited (at Pup rank). Those in MiA get a longer time away from the game before being considered for removal completely.
