Every Raider is expected to do their best. We are not a hardcore guild, but we intend to make the most of our raiding and so have high expectations of our raiders. Everyone should strive to give their best when raiding, ensure they meet the demands of the Raider rank, and spend time researching how to improve outside of raids. All necessary consumables (Food, Flask, Pots, Tomes and Rune (if applicable)) must be brought to Raid. You must also have all required addons as sent out in the proper Discord Channel and Guild Info. This is not optional.
We love to down internet bosses, but not at the cost of fun. Don't ruin that for others
Raid spots are not guaranteed, and no Raider is more entitled to raid than any other.
Raids are composed using a fair and transparent system, giving preference to filling key roles (a Raid Leader, and appropriate numbers of tanks and healers) and appropriate adjustments to reflect Activity as described elsewhere. Consequently, all players should expect to be sat out of raids, and this shall be taken into account before any decisions on future sits are made. Harbouring expectations of a guaranteed personal raid spot will only lead to disappointment.
The Raid Leader is the boss. Follow their directions, and be quiet when they are speaking on Discord. Do not monopolise Discord or inundate the RL with whispers about your brilliant strategy ideas during the raid. If discussion is invited, then keep it brief and to the point. Preferably, raid strategy discussion should be taken to the Discord #raid-chat where it can be read offline, outside of the heat of battle, and alongside the other 19 brilliant strategy ideas which would have bombarded the Raid Leader senseless.(edited)
Positive criticism is a good thing. Members should feel free to give advice and suggestions to other players to improve their play. Equally, Members should view any positive criticism as an opportunity to improve. Do not take criticism personally.
The guild's raids and its progress come first. Raid signs are expected to be done well in advance of the Raid and not on the day before or day of the Raid. This will be monitored and calculated into your overall performance. Raiders are expected to attend at least 90% of all guild raids per month with an allowance to 80% for IRL Emergencies (we are aware this type of thing happens). Signing Tentative is and always will be considered as attending a Raid unless an Officer has been whispered 48 Hours in advance with the reason you have signed Tentative. Raiders actively engaged in non-raiding activities (or raiding elsewhere) at the expense of guild raids risk losing their rank.
