1. Guild Chat and Ventrilo
- No racist or sexist remarks.
- No political or religious discussion.
- Treat all guild members with respect.
- No Drama. Problems within the guild should be taken to an officer.
- All members should have some form of verbal communication device (headset/microphone).
- All players must be registered and monitor the forums daily for any announcements.
- Forum names should be similar to your in-game character name only.
- All rules that apply to Guild Chat also apply to raid chat.
- Members are expected to put in maximum effort during every boss attempt, progression or farm.
- During boss encounters raid chat and vent should be kept relatively clear.
- Flasks and Food are required for ALL hard-mode and progression bosses. Flasks and various potions will be available for purchase from the guild bank with 100% of the proceeds being reinvested back into the guild.
- Members are expected to know and understand the facets of each encounter that pertain to their role.
- Our primary raiding goals are progression, efficiency, and improvement.
- Fire always comes from the left, unless it comes from the right. Don't stand in the fire.
4. Guild Ranks and Promotions
- Promotions and Demotions are based off guidelines defined within the loot system and officer discretion.
- Individual ranks will be updated whenever necessary.
a. All guild rules apply to officers as well.
b. Major demotions and removals require a unanimous decision from all officers.
c. Changes to guild rules require a unanimous decision from all officers.
Upon acceptance into Simplicity, new members will be subject to a three to four week trial period. During this trial, the member must show 100% raid attendance and must continually work to prove they are worthy of guild membership (an approved application alone does not guarantee this membership). Simplicity will promptly remove from the guild any trial member who proves to not be up to our standards and expectations.
At the end of the trial period, the trial member's acceptance to the guild must be unanimously approved by all officers. If a consensus cannot be reached, the trial period can be extended for a maximum of one additional week. Given that the new member completes the trial period without incident and receives unanimous officer approval, they will be promoted to the Raider rank.
Loot Council. Loot is distributed via a loot council system. In this system, the loot council will ensure equal and fair distribution of raid loot based on attendance, attitude, performance, and utility. The goal of this system is to strengthen the guild as a whole, as opposed to promoting a system in which loot concerns are based around the individual.
Trial > Raider > Officer > GM (The casual rank are people that will be used in raids if needed but are not guaranteed a raid spot.)
Tuesday - Thursday. Invites begin promptly at 7:45pm. Raids will end at approximately 12am but may be extended for progression. You are expected to be online and ready when raid invites start. Being ready means being outside the instance and ready to pull promptly at 8pm.
If you have any questions, contact one of your officers and we'll be happy to help.
