With more and more of us getting characters/alts to lvl 70 (or to Outlands at least) I’d like to ask for everyone’s help with a couple things.
Initiative. If you are interested in setting up heroic nights, kara groups, or anything else that you think would be a fun activity for the guild, don’t hesitate to do so. If you need direction from the officers, or general help on how to recruit, or what we are looking for in people, feel free to ask.
I know since the Kara 1 group has disappeared into the wind, there are those of you who feel left out of Kara. The last thing we want to do is make you feel left out. And that’s why we need you to take a step up and help re-form kara groups, or get instance runs going. If we are missing key components, or simply need to help guildies get better gear, please let us know so we can help you.
Communication. I can’t stress this one enough. We, as officers, try and reach out as often as we can, offering help when we log in. But if we don’t hear anything immediately, then we as players go off and try to do our own things. We need you to communicate with us more. Do we need more Dire Maul runs? Do we need some Ramparts/Blood Furnace runs? Do we need to setup groups to run people through the Kara key attunement? Do you want to start up an arena team? Let us know and we will make the time to accomodate those who need help.
Recruitment and Guild Rankings. We have over 190 seperate accounts in our guild, which is a pretty decent amount. However, it seems like of late the number of players on seems to dwindle much lower than it has previously. So we are opening up for new recruitment. But we don’t want any person who walks in the door. If you come across someone who seems very friendly and portrays himself in a family-friendly way with a sly sense of humor, guide him to our conduct rules and try to recruit him/her. We keep track of who “sponsors” guildies, and that comes into focus when we promote players inside the guild.
Speaking of which… It may seem like we never promote anyone. This isn’t true. We pick people we feel represent what our guild is all about. If you are a quiet player who does their own thing all the time, chances are we won’t know much about you, and recruitment won’t happen as rapidly. If you are friendly in guild chat, vocal about wanting to attend events, interested in leveling alts to help out with gaps in instances, come up with your own ideas for things, and generally promote yourself inside and out of the guild in a positive way, we do notice these things. Just don’t over-promote: that can make you look smug. And we don’t like over-smugness 🙂
I hope this doesn’t sound like rubbish. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask me, or any of the officers.
