Raid CHANGES 12-22-2011
After much consideration and much thought (and many naps and snacks), we have decided to run at least 2 weekly raids. We are not a raiding guild per say, and raids are always secondary to friendship and fellowship, but we do have raiders in the guild. The raids are a chance for those that enjoy raiding to do so with friends. We originally tried to design set groups and quickly found out that our schedules will never all match and setting a schedule will be difficult, if not impossible.
In order to make the raiding aspect work, we will be scheduling weekly raids at least twice a week and allowing guild members to sign up. All raids will be posted at least two weeks in advance and should allow plenty of time to consider if one can attend or not. Raids
will last 2 hours. They will start on time and stop on time. All
raids will generally start at 7:00PM and last until 9:00PM, though not all raids will start at the same time or on the same days. We will
start in Firelands and by February we should be starting in Dragon Soul.
Loot and Raid Rewards
We have given much thought to the loot system that we should adopt and use. We want no one to feel left out and we want no one to feel that the system is unfair. We know that we will never please everyone, but we have tried to consider all aspects of the rewards that are gained by raiding.
Loot will be on a true need before greed basis. This need before greed basis is the epitome of the Christian life. We are only as strong as the weakest among us. There are factors that will under-gird this need before greed system. The factors are: current item, raid attendance, and frequency of reward. To put it simply, if you are active in helping the guild and your need for an item is clearly apparent, you will be awarded the item, if it drops. In all other cases we will be using a list similar to the suicide kings loot system. -- More information will be available in the Forums..
