Raid Rules and Requirements
Progression Raid Team
In the progression raid team there will be no friend invites, no cross realm invites and no guild mergers, so to be a part of the progression raid team players must be in the guild and meet the requirements to join in progression raids. This is to provide stability and structure within the progression raid team and the progression toward mythic raiding.
Social/Alt Raid Team
In the Social/Alt raid team, friend invites are welcome and cross realm is allowed but again there will be no guild mergers. This is due to the fact that we have found numerous times before that they do not work. As long as players meet the minimum requirements they can participate.
Progression raids will be 8:15-11:00 Sever time on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday
Social/Alt raids TBD (To Be Decided)
You are expected to make your own way to the instance and be outside of it by the raid start time. Please do not expect a summon.
We expect mature respectful behaviour from all members at all times. Keep Discord and the in-game raid channel clear when the raid leader is going over tactics or the master looter is assigning loot. Raids are not the place for prolonged discussion of tactics or loot. Short comments during a raid on improvements to a tactic or a concern over loot are encouraged but should not extend beyond that. The Raid Leader or Master Looter’s word is final on matters such as these.
Minimum Raid Requirements:
Everyone to log Discord
Boss mods installed and any other addons we may ask you to get that will help on encounters
Minimum item level 900+ for TOS
Completed your Class order hall campaign to unlock third relic
Do at least 70% of the bench mark DPS/HPS (applies to progression raid team only, we will be using the new askmrroboot/Riadbots simulators to benchmark players)
Bring your own food, flasks and potions as resources will be scarce at first and the guild will not be able to supple this benefit at the start
Be gemmed and enchanted
Have RC loot council installed
The in-game calendar will still be use to schedule raids, Players will have accept invite on the calendar to attend the raid and it will be your responsibility to put yourself as decline or out if you are unable to attend that raid.
The option to be tentative is not a valid sign up and is not to be used, any one that uses that option will be put as out or declined, so it is simple you are coming or you are not.
If you are not be able to attend the planned raid or if you have to be away for a period of time please use our vacation notice forum, Facebook group page or pm me or one of the officers.
Please make sure this is done before going away as if you don’t you may find yourself demoted when you come back.
Within the Progression raid team attendance is important to provide stability, structure and progression towards mythic, so high attendance is needed to achieve this. We understand that some players work shifts and their attendance can differ from week to week even though there may be some sort of pattern to the shift work. We can work around this, it isn’t a problem and no one should be penalised because of real life.
Where attendance has been seen to be a problem is the situation where players turn up as and when they please or decide to take a break because they have all the gear they need. This is usually due to the fact that killing the last boss on HC mode and that was enough for them and this was noticeable in Warlords of Draenor with some players. This is something we will be stamping out in Legion and these players will find themselves demoted to social.

Loot rules in Legion: Same, but different
We use RC loot council.
First of all, we are a tight-knit guild with many mature players and friends and as such, there isn’t much loot drama to speak of. People are usually quite good at passing on stuff they don’t need or someone else needs more.
There are some changes Blizzard have made to personal loot where it can be traded to someone in the raid albeit with some restrictions won’t affect us much as we will start each tier of raiding with Master Looter, with the possibility of switching to personal loot once we reach farm status. This saves a lot of time and hassle and is time better spent working on the next boss.
Main Spec > Off Spec, but as an extra insurance against bad RNG and someone getting two or more item in a raid we will limit ourselves to one piece of loot per raid. However, if no one else needs that piece for MS you can still roll for it before it is opened for OS rolls.
The other small change is based on the fact that people kept asking the ML to roll out certain drops first, so that they could use their bonus roll if they didn’t win. In those situations, you should always do your bonus roll first before we start handling the drops. There is nothing worse than having someone win the drop and then see the same player bonus roll that very same item. It’s a loss for the guild as well as the losing player. In the case of, let’s say a BIS item for several classes, getting your bonus rolls out of the way can net us several drops with no waste. In short; if the boss has an item you deem worthy of a bonus roll, you go ahead and roll when the boss dies – not after the loot is done. This will be monitored by Exorsus Raid Tools, although I doubt much policing should be needed now that you know our stance.
As we don’t want to encourage players to pass on perfectly good loot because of the one piece of loot/raid just to set themselves up for a tier roll, we’re keeping a separate counter here. That means a limitation of 1 tier part/raid unless no one else needs it. This is also the one area where the Loot Master will intervene if needed. For instance if it’s your 3rd part to your set bonus and the person you roll against would get a 2-set bonus then the loot master will award the person that would complete a 2-set bonus over someone getting a 3rd part. Again, we rarely have any problems discussing these things when needed, but you should be aware that the rule is in place.
- MS > OS
- 1 item limit unless no one else needs
- Bonus rolls before ML rolls
- 1 tier part limit unless no one else needs, ML might override.
The aim is to ensure fair distribution of loot while maximizing the power we get from gear. This guild usually handles loot in a very mature way where people gladly let someone have a drop if it benefits them more. This sort of knowledge and behaviour is encouraged, and the extra rules are there to ensure fair distribution, not to punish players. No system is perfect, and there is no way to effectively rule out RNG.
