* How many guilds have you been a part of?
Over 15

* What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Horde. I like the character models and the atmosphere more than Alliance.

More than one of them

* What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Guildless

* Why did you chose to join your current guild?
I didnt choose to be guildless so much as the last few guilds I have been in have died/merged...I merged with them, didnt really like what I got into, and left...this time causing me to really not have the urge to play the game anymore.


* What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Cleared BT and Kalecgoes. Guild merged after 2 weeks of poor attempts on Brutallus

* What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
We used officer loot/best upgrade. I loved it far more than DKSuck

Meh. I doubt I'll be playing WotLK

How many guilds have you been a part of?
Four.

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Horde because my friends played Horde. Plus Gnomes are ugly.

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
I have been officer and raid leader in my previous two guilds.

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
<Vilified> I am a standard member.

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
Because they have solid progression, good leadership, and I was friends with their MT.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Gorefiend in BT.

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
We are using a tiered roll system. We're not satisfied with it and are changing things around to suit our needs better.

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
I am really excited. I think WoW is about to become a LOT more fun for tanks. I am mostly just grinding gold and leveling proffessions. I also plan on grinding some rep while I still can.

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
We are taking a break from raiding until the 3.0 patch to let our raiders rest a bit. Beyond that we are selling off some of the items in our guild bank and working on a new loot system.

Guild experience survey!

How many guilds have you been a part of?

3. My first guild was terrible. It was run by a Marine, his wife, and his mother-in-law. My second was my own guild (a group of like 5 friends). The third is a real guild.


What faction do you play primarly? Why?

Horde. Orcs are awesome, and I hate short people.


In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?

I was GM of my second guild, but that barely counts. I am officer/class leader/and a frequent raid leader in my current guild.


What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?

Presence of Gurubashi. There's a weird mark on one of the e's and I don't know the alt code. See above for my position.


Why did you chose to join your current guild?

I was specifically recruited after tanking heroics PuGs with an officer of the guild. They needed tanks, and I was good. I brought myself (current #1 tank), my pally tank friend (Current #1 pally tank) and my pocket priest friend (current #2 healer behind the Co-GM and healing officer).


What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?

Teron Gorefiend. 2/5 MH, 4/9 BT


What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?

We use a loot council that distributes loot based on reliability, performance, and when you last got loot. It has worked well enough, but I would be happier with a more math-based system (EPGP or something similar).


What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion?

We're excited for 10-man raiding. We'll probably have 25-mans 2 nights a week, and have a 10-man officer/class leader group 2 other nights one tier ahead of the rest of the guild: to learn fights and because the officers/class leaders are simply better and more reliable.


What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?

I, personally, have taken 2 days vacation and will probably play for the majority of my 96-hour weekend doing instances from 70 to 80. (Instance grinding because it is both useful and because there will be about 50,000 people levelling with quests).


What is your guild doing to prepare for it?

The guild is stockpiling gold and forming small 5-man sub-groups for instance grinding. The officers are helping members find levelling and profession guides, as well as instance information for instance grinding.

How many guilds have you been a part of?
Three in WoW

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
I only play alliance because horde smells.

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
All of them.

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Clowns on Fire. I am the officer in charge of loot/DKP and complaints. I tend to handle tank recruiting when we need to.

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
We came up with the idea for CoF during a really terrible Nefarian fight near the end of vanilla WoW.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
We're working on Brutallus right now.

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
We use an open ended DKP system right now. It doesn't quite serve all our needs, so we'll be moving to EPGP for WLK.

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
I'm looking forward to the warrior changes. There's a lot of simplification going on - for the most part it seems to be in a good direction. I'm busy doing warrior threat testing and writing addon code like crazy.

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
- Recruiting to make sure our roster is solid through the transition
- Getting policy and procedure changes ready to roll (e.g. DKP system, main changes/deathknights, etc.)
- Trying to get as many people their missing T6 gear as possible to help in levelling to 80

Thanks for the responses!

Oh and Satrina, I would love to see what you come up with for an EPGP system and tracking method. My guild is currently discussing changing loot systems right now and EPGP has been thrown on the table.

How many guilds have you been a part of?
Two. One was a guild composed of my RL friends, the second was a larger guild, consisting of great people we'd met in-game and got along with, who basically one day said "Hey you guys should all join us!" and so we did.

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Strictly Alliance, simply because my friends started WoW as Alliance, I only really play with my RL friends, and have zero cause to play as Horde.
In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
Yes, yes, and no. I hate social leadership positions, but am forced into officer/RL positions just due to being an MT, understanding game mechanics/encounters better than everyone else, and no one else willing to lead anything.
What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Pirates of Janeiro! I'm an officer.
Why did you chose to join your current guild?
See above. Met the Pirates early on, one day during a raid their guild leader said "Hey guys, join us!" and we did.
What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
5/6 SSC, 3/4 TK, 2/5 Hyjal (with a non-guild raid).
What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
Guild doesn't raid, but my raid group uses DKP. I am quite happy with it.
What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion?
Quite possibly the most exciting thing to happen to WoW. Sounds awesome from every angle.

What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
Taking a break from WoW to avoid burnout and build excitement.
What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
Same as me.

Dreadmaul: 1

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Horde because my RL friend got me in to wow and he plays Horde..

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
The Drama Ward (Read above)

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
I didn't i was guildless for a while scouting for a guild to raid with and my current gm comes near me inspects me and asks me to join and tells me they would be hitting SSC/TK with in 2 weeks so i decided to give them a try.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Not worth mentioning :(

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
DKP and yes

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?

Guild experience survey!

How many guilds have you been a part of?
I've belonged to 4 guilds.
What faction do you play primarly? Why?
I play alliance. I randomly picked alliance in '05 and just never had time to level up toons on the horde side.
In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
Officer
What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Council of the Dedicated, Officer
Why did you chose to join your current guild?
I choose this guild because of the fair and open system for picking raiders for casual players.
What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Battle for Mount Hyjal: Winterchill
What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
DKP, yes
What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
I'm excited for the ex-pac. I'm working so much right now I haven't had time to play much.
What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
We have an open discussion on our forums asking guild members what raid rules they'd like to see used in Wrath. Also we continue raiding as much as possible (we are down to once per week) and recruiting via the Realm forums.

How many guilds have you been a part of?
5 (only 2 for any length of time, though)

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Alliance. Just got started there, and it stuck.

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
GM on an alt in one of the off guilds, little used.. My main I've run 10 man raids, but no other leadership postions.

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
DeadMine Champions (member)

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
After being with prior guild for several months, ran a few raids with DMC, and found that they actually were able to have FUN running raids, while prior guild saw them as a job. DMC maintains disipline without taking the fun out of the run.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
TTK (1/4), SSC (0/6, 2 tries) Plateau trash runs only. Guild is mostly a bit higher.

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
Roll on need for epics for main set only. If noone needs for main set, then roll for off set. Only one epic (roll) per run to any single toon, unless noone else can use it. Everything else is held by raidleader to be DE'd unless specifically asked for by someone. DE's passed out after raid by roll. Very happy with it.

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
While eager to try it out, still progressing on BC, so am trying to build cash and equipment to be ready in time.

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
See above, with a secondary recruiting effort to build a better raiding group, but only looking for qualified raiders.

Guild experience survey!

How many guilds have you been a part of?
2
What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Horde. Mostly because it's where I started.
In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
Yes.
What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
<Warcraft Dervish> Guild Leader
Why did you chose to join your current guild?
It was formed by the members of a counter-strike community I was an admin of.
What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
1/6 SSC, 3/4 TK
What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
We use Suicide Kings Geo, and I've been extremely happy with it (some in game addon issues aside).
What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
I'm very excited. My guild had trouble initially getting into "serious" raid content due to attendance issues. We had 15 solid people who would make 90% of raids, but the turnover/reliability of the last 10 slots was horrible. The new 10/25 option on raids gives us the ability to adapt to running one 10, two 10s or a 25 based on attendance any given week which takes a lot of the edge off.
To prepare we're creating a set raider list where we reward reliability with guaranteed raid slots while still allowing room for our casuals to fill in and keep the stress as low as possible on our core raiders.
What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
See above (being the GL and main tank it's hard to separate what "I'm" doing from what the guild is doing).

How many guilds have you been a part of?

Four. An RFC guild to stop the guild invite spam, a real leveling guild. A wanna be MC raid guild that absorbed 15 leveling guilds, and lasted a month. And for the last 3+ years, a 12 hour/week raid guild.

What faction do you play primarly? Why?

Horde. I knew the initial game would have more people playing alliance, and I didn't want to contribute to the imbalance.

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?

Yes, for the vast majority of my WoW experience.

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?

< E X A L T E D >
GM, and I share the raid leader and MT hats with a number of other officers.


Why did you chose to join your current guild?

The folks I met in my leveling guild were pretty cool, and when we tried to raid under someone else's tent, it didn't work. We decided we could run a much tighter ship. So we did.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?

Just started working on M'uru.

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?

A bid DKP system. It does the job well enough.

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?

Pretty excited about the tank changes, and their attempts to simplify and re balance parts of the game should be good over all changes. We're trying to finish off Sunwell before we run out of time. We'll see whether 3.0.2 helps, or complicates that task. I'm vaguely trying to pick up a bit more PVP gear before the xpac hits, but S4 is pretty ridiculous right now. Once the profession changes finish shaking out, I'll probably be changing professions.

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?

Right now, we're more concerned with finishing off Sunwell. We're updating our policies and trying to shake out some bugs to avoid some of the problems we ran into in the first expansion. But things can change so quickly, we'll have to play a lot of it by ear.

What's AP? never heard of that loot system.
Attendance-based rolls, more you're there more rolls you get. Tiered for Members --> Negs --> Apps --> Offspec/Beggar
After X weeks your loot rolls off and you get the roll back, attendance % is based on Y weeks

We may change it some in Wrath, but it works fine.

10-07-2008, 06:01 AM
How many guilds have you been a part of?
One. I think that makes me a bit of a novelty!

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Alliance. I just made my first character human and didn't look back after I got to know people.

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
Yes, I became guild leader of Soldiers of Azeroth just over two years ago, after roughly a year in the guild and a few months being an officer. I'm also the primary raid leader for the guild.

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
See above.

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
I joined as a fresh newbie at level 20ish when a RL friend invited me to join. I stuck around because together we got through the levelling process and then began raiding the 'hard' way - building up our guild with an alliance and figuring out all the rules as we went along.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
We've cleared BT and MH in TBC.

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
We use a DKP system that rewards attendance with points. When an item drops you have two options - to 'greed' the item and spend 10 points (minimal amount) or to 'need' and spend 50% of your current points total - whoever has the most points wins, and ties are decided by /roll. It's worked really well this whole expansion with really no loot drama or 'bad' decisions coming out of it and we're not planning on changing it.

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
I'm excited. Loads more instances and things to do, and more opportunities to progress. The main thing I have to prepare for launch is to decide whether I am going to play my healing paladin or my tanking warrior, but I'm waiting on patch 3.0 to figure that out.

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
We had an officers meeting last night to go through what changes we'd like to see in how we deal with WotLK. We've also had a survey of guild members to figure out what class/role they're likely to want to play at 80, and given some early results of that to the guild so they can adjust their plans if need be. We generally feel fairly prepared, as this is the second expansion we've been through as a guild, but it would be fair to say that our 'vanilla' WoW progression wasn't half as good as our TBC progression - so we're very aware that we need to pick up raiding fairly quickly to keep us 'desireable' as a home to more recent joiners.

Guild experience survey!

How many guilds have you been a part of?
Two.


What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Alliance, because they're obviously the good guys. ;)


In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
All three, and MT also.


What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Elysium (Burning Legion US), GM and MT.


Why did you chose to join your current guild?
I was approached by a friend from my previous guild who intended to start a new, better organized guild focused on raid progression. For the first ~10 months he was GM and I was his XO.


What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Killed Twin Emperors and Razuvious a few times, then TBC came out.
Currently on Brutallus.


What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
We used a zero-sum DKP system for a while. We eventually scratched that and now simply have the raid discuss where each piece of loot should go in order to most benefit progression. We have a rank system and some basic rules to ensure disagreements can be sorted out, but we rarely have to resort to that. This has worked very well for us for the 18 months we've been using it, but I should add that it probably only works because we are extremely picky with only recruiting highly mature individuals who want to raid for progression, not personal gain.


What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
Pretty excited. Reading up on it as much as I can. Saving up gold for my DK's epic flying mount and trade skills.


What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
Trying to get an idea of who will be playing what toon mostly. Eventually do some recruitment as needed.
Selling guild bank surplus.
I plan on making a few posts to give people an idea of how the transition to level 80 raiding is likely to take place, mostly for those who weren't around for the release of TBC.

In total about five, however one of them merged into another guild so I count them as the same guild. I've only raided with that guild and my current guild.

What faction do you play primarly? Why?

Alliance because it was what I arbitrarily picked when I started playing. I also do have a horde rogue that I occasionally play.

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?

I was an officer in my previous guild The Knights of the Light for a short time until we were absorbed by my current guild, but I was an unofficial officer much longer beforehand (I had access to the officer forum but I was only a "sub-officer").

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?

Guild: Furious Crawdads. Rank: Crawdad (raider)

Why did you chose to join your current guild?

My previous guilds' officers (myself included somewhat) spoke to the leadership of Furious Crawdads and ended up arranging an agreement where we the members of KotL would join Furious Crawdads. We had a history with FC because a number of our former guild members went to join that guild beforehand so it was a fairly natural progression for us.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?

4/5 Hyjal 4/9 Black Temple with Bloodboil at about 50% before we stopped raiding :( But we did kill Kael and Vashj before the attunements to BT and Hyjal were lifted (before I joined the guild though).

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?

Furious Crawdads uses Suicide Kings. I'm happy with it because we're fairly laid back about loot and things get distributed fairly(even though I'm near the bottom of the list :p)

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?

I'm looking forward to Wrath personally. I've been working on some rarer accomplishments before 3.0 goes live such as the Bloodsail Admiral's Hat so I have a cool title to flaunt :D Gearwise I'm trying to get whatever drops I still need that I can get, in particular those that won't be replaced for a long time in Wrath. I'll be trying to do more old world raids and more pugs in general once 3.0 hits too to get achievements and just because I want to tank stuff (off topic, I'm seriously considering permanently switching to Prot from Fury).

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?

Some people are leveling alts, others are doing PVP, I don't exactly know what everyone is doing.

That's me and my guild :)

Edit: Whew, I had some wireless network problems as I tried to post this and I was worried I'd lost it.

Guild experience survey!

How many guilds have you been a part of?
2, first one was a pure raiding guild, the one now is casual raiding guild.

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Alliance. Because that's where my g/f is ;)

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
In my first guild just a raid member, this guild I started off as an member, became raid leader, and then co-leader (my g/f is the GM)

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
"Sek Sea Pirates" =D Yarr! I'm the co-lead

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
My g/f asked me to help her start another guild up (She ran a guild in EQ for six years)

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
preBC we made it to 2nd boss in BWL, TBC we only made it to SSC/TK content :(

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
10 man raiding we keep it on group loot. Roll need if it's main spec upgrade, G for offspec, pass otherwise.

25 man we use what we call a cool-down rotation. Basically if you need something that drops, you send a tell to the loot master/raid leader. He assigns you a number, based on how many tells he got. So I might be 1, you might be 2, and that other guy might be 3. Then raid leader would roll /roll 1 3. Whatever number he rolls, that player gets that item. Then the winner goes on a "cooldown" to roll for an item for 2 more raids he attends unless no one else wants the item, in which he can then roll for it (second phase), but goes on a new cool down at same length of time. If no one wants to roll their CD on it, then after so long the LM/RL will say "non CD roll" and then same process, but CD will not go into effect (this is the third phase)

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
I personally can not wait. Lots of awesome changes, new content looks amazing, the 10 man raiding is where I'm pumped up about, etc. I am leveling up as many alts as I possibly can before launch. I'm currently at 3 70s, 3 60's, 2 40's

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
Taking time off raiding to work up alts, professions, instances, pvp, etc. Just relaxing ^_^

I've never heard of that cool down loot method. Seems to me that you may lose chance at gearing good raiders if they are on CD. Dunno though. It's interesting.

Guild experience survey!

How many guilds have you been a part of?
5? Some were just fillers while I was floating around.

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Alliance because they're prettier.

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
Yes.

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Vintage, I am a raid leader.

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
I was at the point of quitting because there was really no action on my server. A bunch of old school players reactivated and I decided to give it one last shot.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
We're currently working on Muru. Trying to get him down before the patch nerf >_<

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
Loot council. Of course I'm happy with it, I'm part of the loot council ;-)

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
Can't wait for my frostmourne. I'm playing as little as possible so I can splurge when it comes out.

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?

Selling bear runs.

What's the going price of a bear run these days?

tuffmuffin
10-08-2008, 03:54 PM
The only guild Horde guild on my server selling them is asking for 10,000g minimum. If someone offers more, they get "higher priority"

Darksend
10-08-2008, 04:35 PM
we did 7K minimums because the 4th best alliance guild on the server was selling them for 3K so we couldnt find buyers

we did get a 10K yesterday from someone who agreed on 7K because he wanted his now incase we didnt get every reset

* How many guilds have you been a part of?
3 since vanilla.

* What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Alliance. I set my wife down in front of the create character screen and had her choose what she wanted (which was a NE hunter) and rolled a new toon to level with her

* In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
Current guild officer/Raid Leader. Mainly because when we were starting out no one else wanted to do it and tanks tend to take over the pace of runs.

* What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Exiles. Raid Leader. One of three main tanks.

* Why did you chose to join your current guild?
Wife and I left the previous one due to politics and leveled up some new toons. We met a bunch of people on the way and built it pretty organically.

* What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Akama in BT. After that the wrath ship date announced and people disappeared. I am hoping that enough come back after the patch to go push a little further.

* What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
We use the Ni Karma system. Its a roll plus bonus system with a cap on the max amount. You lose half your bonus when you win. Very happy, we always get good comments from new members on it. We were actually the first guild on our server to use it and have found several others on our server that have adopted it.

* What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
Its going to change everything, but I'm really looking forward to it. It will be nice to have every one on the same level again. Gathering a lot of Str gear, getting some gold and propping up my crafting skills.

* What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
We are kind of in hibernation. Taking a rest for the mad dash to 80 and start of raiding. We are also doing some recruiting to insure that we have a decent sized roster that can fit the raids.

How many guilds have you been a part of?
I've been apart of two raiding guilds. One that barely got out of kara and the one I'm currently in. We are 5/9 bt and 5/5 mh

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Alliance. The people who got me into WoW had started alliance and I figured it'd be better if I played with someone I knew.

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
Yes, I was an Officer and RL in my Kara guild until no futher progression and no one wanted to go in the same direction as myself.

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
All Nighter. My position is Raider.

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
There we two guilds I was going to join on my server that raided late night which is what I needed. The guild I didn't choose to go to disband about two or three weeks after joining my current guild.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Black Temple and Mount Hyjal

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
A need for main specs (primary going to tanks). A /roll 1 for off sets. I am happy about this. However, the RL will intervene if the item will help the raid as a whole more.

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
I really enjoy getting ready for the expansion. I am getting my tank geared up and working on more tanking to get my overall experince tanking higher. My main ATM is mostly just on just to raid and do dailies to fund my raiding addiction ;-)

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
We are running Naxx on a nightly basis to get ready for it (we hear its going to be very similar).

How many guilds have you been a part of?
[/LIST]I have been with 4 guilds since i started playing. 2 on Nazgrel and 2 on Medivh. The on i am in now is Attica.

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Horde because they have taurens and taurens rule...

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
I was a class officer way back in the day of my first guild but looking back i really didnt know a thing about tanking. I havent been an official officer since although right now i am the maintank for my guild (and very frequently confused as an officer because of my natural tendency to raidlead).

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Attica. I am the maintank although stepping back significantly due to my hatred of sunwell.

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
I transfered to the server Medivh to follow some friends after i got back from deployment. The guild i initially came into had already recruited the numbers they wanted in terms of tanks and simply had me as a guild friend. i wanted to tank so badly that i found a slightly less progressed guild (my current) and made the move to them.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Downed every boss up to and including illidan, sort of working kalecgos now.

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
We use loot council and i am a big fan of it because i joined the guild later then some of our core with lesser gear and was still able to gear up ahead of most. It allowed me to quickly become a viable T6 tank and satisfy the goals that i wanted to accomplish in TBC.

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
I am absolutely thrilled with the changes made to protection warriors and have had a BLAST on the beta leveling my warrior. In preparation i am pretty much tanking what i normally did to help the guildies get gear that they need since im mostly capped out (need that damned helm).

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
Trying to down bosses in sunwell and kill as much as possible since the loot that drops from there should last through their leveling to 80.

* How many guilds have you been a part of?

1, a small guild of real life friends and their friends. About 7 active players.

* What faction do you play primarly? Why?

Horde. Because my friends play Horde.

* In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?

I think I have an officer's rank. I can invite new members at least (mostly alts).

* What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?

The Blueberry Muffins. No special position. I'm one of the tanks, sometimes I dps.

* Why did you chose to join your current guild?

Because my friends play there.

* What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?

Cleared SSC, TK, MH. Working on Illidari Council in BT. This is not with my guild but with an independent raid force.

* What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?

Roll need on need, greed on greed. If you're asking what my raid force uses? It's Suicide Kings.

* What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion?

A bit too early for us, especially the nerf patch.

* What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?

Nothing, just trying to finish off BT.

* What is your guild doing to prepare for it?

Nothing special.

How many guilds have you been a part of?
One.

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Alliance. No Real reason.

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
Officer and occasional Raid Leader

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Soldiers of Azeroth. Officer

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
Random invite at lvl 5 if I remember correctly.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
We've cleared BT and MH in TBC.

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
We use a DKP system that rewards attendance with points. When an item drops you have two options - to 'greed' the item and spend 10 points (minimal amount) or to 'need' and spend 50% of your current points total - whoever has the most points wins, and ties are decided by /roll.

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
I think it should be good.

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
We had an officers meeting last night to go through what changes we'd like to see in how we deal with WotLK. We've also had a survey of guild members to figure out what class/role they're likely to want to play at 80, and given some early results of that to the guild so they can adjust their plans if need be. We generally feel fairly prepared, as this is the second expansion we've been through as a guild, but it would be fair to say that our 'vanilla' WoW progression wasn't half as good as our TBC progression - so we're very aware that we need to pick up raiding fairly quickly to keep us 'desireable' as a home to more recent joiners.

Guild experience survey!

How many guilds have you been a part of?
Since I returned to WoW after the TBC release, 3. Maybe add 2 to that for my time pre-bc.
What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Horde. I refuse to play ally. I'm a dick like that. This likely has to do with my initial exposure to the game when I chose to play a NE Warrior and got tired of playing with 12 year olds. Personal experience that scarred me for life, I suppose :p.
In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
Yes, in my first guild after my return I was an officer. When that guild fell apart and I moved to another guild, I moved up to officer and eventually into GM where I also was raid leading.
What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Right now I'm in Hyperion (as per my sig) with my warrior. My position is OT.
Why did you chose to join your current guild?
I didn't really "leave" my last guild and am still acting GM while we wait for wrath to come out and see what happens to our raid team. However, we lost a lot of our raiders over summer vacation and I wanted to keep raiding. Hyperion is one of the top 3 guilds on our server (I would say the best but I'm biased) and I was lucky enough to have a good opportunity to demonstrate my tanking ability and was brought in to OT for them.
What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Hyperion has done 4/6 sunwell, we stopped banging our heads against M'uru as people slacked off with the approach of Wrath. I personally haven't attended Brutallus or Twins kills (I have done Kalec and Felmyst).
What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
Our raid leader decides who gets what loot. It's very stressful for him when people freak out when they don't get a drop (things like the Skull off Illidan), but for the most part it keeps raids moving quickly and keeps people in the upgrades they need to get for us to progress.
What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
Wrath is revitalizing my favorite class and spec, the protection warrior, I'm very excited for it. It is also introducing what looks like it could be my second favorite class, the death knight. I'm preparing by spending an inordinate amount of time in beta, playing with level 80 warrior stuff and leveling a deathknight to see what's up.
What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
Uhhh... heh, my guild is full of hardcore pvpers and a very large concentration of gladiators, so for the most part they are spending their time pvping.

Guild experience survey!
How many guilds have you been a part of?
While leveling one guild then my primary raiding guild which sadly disbanded and now a new one so it's 3 guilds horde side.
1 Social guild on my *cough* alliance *cough* warlock.
What faction do you play primarily? Why?
Horde of course, they're the good guys.
In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
Officer raid leader for non progression raids.
What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Heart of War, raiding member, not officer by choice.
Why did you chose to join your current guild?
My former guild disbanded.
What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Killed Illidan two weeks before SWP was added to the game.
What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
My guild did use some stupid form of dkp it kept adding up from Karazhan to Black Temple and I was totally unhappy with it.
What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion?
I raided as restoshaman and PuGged my warrior through Karazhan and Zul'Aman. I hope WotLK gives me the chance to be a main tank in high level content.
What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
Level farming/pvp alts.
What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
Keeping in touch with all members. Trying to get former members back. My current guild stopped raiding right before Illidan and we're encouraging all players that want to, to join raiding guilds and raid "but" come back when WotLK hits. That tactic is working out very very well.

How many guilds have you been a part of?
On Quel'Thalas-EU I've been part of three guilds - Crimson Thunder, Septima Gemina and currently Aurora.

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Horde - I'm a human in real life, might as well go for something out of the ordinary when I'm trying to escape real life!

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
I founded Crimson Thunder but things didn't quite go as I'd planned and the guild disbanded before people hit 60.

In Septima Gemina I started off just as a normal member, but due to a split caused by the "more hardcore" wanting to go off and do their own thing, I quickly became involved in raid leading, then got promoted to being an officer. When the existing GM was going through some difficult times in real life I ended up getting that as well. Which is why I ended up leaving myself, that was far too much pressure - I was main tank, raid leader and guild master all at once and unable to delegate much since the others didn't fancy it much either.

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Aurora, and I'm the main tank and currently doing a little bit of raid leading. Not fond of it but the regular raid leader's been struggling a little lately so I offered to take over to give him a breather and have a fresh perspective on trying to get Kalecgos in SWP down before the next patch ideally, but before WotLK at any rate.

Why did you choose to join your current guild?
When I left Septima Gemina I took a few weeks off to try get all the stress out of my system. On my return I looked for the guild that had the most similar principles (ie. casual raiding) and progression - Aurora do 25-man raids 3 nights a week, and were only a small amount ahead of Septima Gemina at the time.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Pre-TBC
Zul'Gurub - cleared
Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj - cleared
Molten Core - cleared
Blackwing Lair - 7/8 (got to Nefarian the reset before TBC was released).

TBC
Karazhan - cleared
Gruul's Lair - cleared
Magtheridon's Lair - cleared
Zul'Aman - cleared (+ farming Amani War Bears)
Serpentshrine Cavern - cleared
Tempest Keep - cleared
Mount Hyjal - cleared
Black Temple - cleared
Sunwell Plateau - 1/6

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
Open bidding DKP, no priority for anyone. Receive 10 DKP for being online at the raid start time and 5 more for being around at the end. If a raid over-runs the scheduled end time by a significant amount (20-30 minutes plus) you receive an extra 5/10 dubbed the "Ironman bonus".

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion?
I'm a bit mixed over the expansion since it sounds like they're changing far too much all at once. I like the thought of dual-specs and Warrior AoE tanking becoming comparable to Paladin AoE tanking... but it sounds like they're making it far too easy.

I've always prided myself on being a good tank but some of the changes make it sound like you'll be able to face-roll it and skill largely goes out the window. Being able to contribute meaningful DPS whilst tanking appeals to me a bit though.

What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
Nothing really.

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
Trying to determine what classes people intend to play so that we can get as ready as possible to start the level 80 raids immediately after hitting the new level cap.

- How many guilds have you been a part of?
4
2 while leveling to 60 back in the days, one of those merged to form my current guild (Apathy), left due to university and bored of the game shortly after tbc hit, joined another guild while leveling my warrior during the summer and later rejoined Apathy again.

- What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Horde, have so far never played an alliance character. Simply because that's what I started with, thats where I have my e-friends.

- In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
Pre tbc I was hunter classleader in Apathy, now I'm warrior classleader there (we do only have 2 warriors though). But I do pulls, marks, trash and tank many thingies.

- What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Apathy, warrior classleader

- Why did you chose to join your current guild?
Cause they are awasome and I love them.

- What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
10 bosses in Naxx pre tbc, cleared Sunwell as 61st guild worldwide.

- What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
You get dkp per hour. No priorities on loot. Secret bids for items, highest bid wins and if you win u pay what you bid. I like it alot, simple and straight to the point.

- What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion?
I'm looking forward to it.

- What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
Prepared consumables and such, have some gold to buy stuff to when needed.

- What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
Going through classes we have, who wants to continue playing their current class, who wants to go deathknight and such, nothing to major though.

-I was warrior/tank class leader in my previous guild and did lead couple raids as well.
What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
-I raided from BWL to Naxx with Archaic Order in pre-tbc and we're planning to bring the guild back on it's former glory for WotLK.
What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
-Techincally that would be 5/6 SSC, 3/4 TK, 1/6MH. Personally I rate those below my first C'thun kill and 5 bosses down in Naxx pre-tbc.
What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
-Current guild is not raiding yet, but all guilds I've been in have used DKP.
What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion?
-I can't wait. TBC art-style just isn't that immersive for me with it's mushroom forests and pink floating citadels.
What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
-Collect 10k cash and after I'm done with that, make it 20k.
What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
-Contacting old members if they're interested in getting back together and eventually start progressing through 10mans and if recruitment process allows, enter 25man raiding aswell.

How many guilds have you been a part of?

Three guilds since the launch of Wow. First was just to level "Council of War"
The second was "The Old Garrison" . Anyone over 25 could join but there was no limit on numbers so we split to form "The Garrison" which is on EU Dunemaul and has around 150 people with around 500 charaters.We have members from all over europe and SA and im sure other places im forgetting :)


What faction do you play primarly? Why?

I play Alliance. Although i do have Horde characters in our mirror guild on another sever:)



In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?

I have not but my girlfriend is the Hunter Class Co.


What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?

My position is as Raider. The Guild is "The Garrison"



Why did you chose to join your current guild?

We are all good friends and wanted control over our guild recruitment rules. If you look up The Older Gamers site you will understand why we needed to leave. Basically anyone no matter how rude or annoying could join.


What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?

We have cleared all Instances leaving us only to kill Archimonde and Illidan. We were trying to kill Illidan the night before the patch went live. We also have a team of around 15 with Armani Bear mounts.


What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?

We use our own DKP system coded and run by a few very intelligent members :). Our system is incredibly fair and the only arguments we seem to have is ones like this, "no you take it, its better for you" .."No after you" :) Im lucky to have such a great guild.


What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?

Im excited by the patch. Personally im just learning all i can and cleaning up my UI ect.


What is your guild doing to prepare for it?

The guild as a whole is ready and waiting :) We have very large rosters for raiding and im sure we will carry on in the same vain.:)

What faction do you play primarly? Why?

Alliance, my brother and his wife play alliance so I just tag around with them most of the time. I also recently got my Tauren Hunter to 70 after about 2 years of leveling. :)

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?

Once but my sister-in-law was GM so I was just there because I was the brother-in-law mostly.

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?

<By Fire Redeemed> I'm just a lowly Social Raider, not full time raider, mostly there for social reasons, and to gear my alts >.>

Why did you chose to join your current guild?

Tired of the elitist guilds that just have to raid 4-5 times a night, or they kick you out, so a bunch of us that were friends split from our last guild to raid together with people we knew.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?

We're a casual guild I think they have gotten through a few bosses in SSC Highest I've done would have to be Lurker in SSC and maybe a Gruul attempt if that counts :)

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?

Roll if you need it, is what we usually use. We occasionally have to pull in for PuGs and didn't want to screw them over our guild members. If everyone helps everyone should have a chance at gear :)

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?

I love WotLK and it looks to be shaping up to be exactly what I want in an expansion. Just getting my characters I want at 80, ready at 70 for the release. My warrior is almost there and my Shaman is geared and waiting for some snow. My horde Hunter is also gonna have some fun making snow angels too I hope. :)

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?

Honestly I think everyone is taking a bit of a vacation from raiding and just grabbing achievements. there are a few that have just been out collecting cash for the next new money sink, whatever that happens to be. And a few are grabbing some mats for professions and going to level a bit with outland mats to ease the grind in northrend.

How many guilds have you been a part of?
3

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Alliance. RL friends rolled alliance, and just never felt a need to switch as I didn't know anyone.

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
First 2 was just a member, in the last one I was both officer, co-raid leader, and later GM.

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Chaos. Currently GM

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
Our original Molten Core raid group was composed of about a dozen different guilds. It was like this for quite a while until finally the core leaders decided to form a guild.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Kill Kalecgoes back in April. Raid had lost steam at that point with the difficulty of Sunwell, and my month long absence due to work.

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
We've used Nurfed DKP for the longest time. Overall I was extremely happy with it, especially in Burning Crusade because it allowed for an upgrade system. It was never properly upgraded for TBC however, and it did cause some major problems. I've never found a loot system that I liked anywhere near as much as NDKP (despite its huge glaring errors), so I'd most likely go loot council next.

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
I'm extremely excited for Wrath. I think the Warrior changes are amazing, but I had already planned to roll DK for the raid. However I'll be leveling my warrior shortly afterwards

* How many guilds have you been a part of?

One in TBC, my current guild. 2 in classic WoW. Although I have toyed with the idea of trying to start my own in WotLK. We'll see.


* What faction do you play primarly? Why?
Horde. No actual issues with alliance aside from being girly men.

* In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
All of that. I am currently just an ordinary member, strong disagreement with the warm body approach to raiding.

* What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Stolen Souls, Main Tank.

* Why did you chose to join your current guild?
It was formed by some friends I made when leveling up in TBC. Started off as mostly instances, heroics and Karazhan. Frankly not many decent horde guilds on Icecrown, and those that are have their tanking core and are not looking for recruits.

* What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
T5, we dabbled with T6 in MH.

* What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
EPGP. I like it in some respects, I preferred old school DKP in some ways. One of the problems with EPGP or at least the way we seem to run it is that it's entirely possible for someone to stay at the top of the list and have first bid each time. DKP had potential for the same problems of course. Overall it's not bad.

* What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
I'm bored to tears with TBC, it's completely the suck compared to the fun and variety of classic WoW. So yes, a new expansion is welcome. I'm gathering all my mats, sifting through wowhead to plan out my gear and reputation, and gleaning whatever I can to fast track my gear and be ready to raid Naxx.

* What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
Who knows. We have the full spectrum from ex-hardcore raider like myself and a handful of others to the new and mostly clueless. I think there will be about 6 or 7 of us that are geared/enchanted appropriately and ready to rock within a short time of launch. The rest will get there when they do.

How many guilds have you been a part of?
Since I began playing, I have been in 6 guilds.

What faction do you play primarly? Why?
My pre-BC raiding was done as an Orc hunter. My BC raiding was done on a Human warrior. I switched factions because I made my warrior with a group of RL friends who preferred alliance.

In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM?
I have been the leader of 2 guilds and an officer in one.

What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild?
Still Life (Still Life Guild - Kilrogg (http://www.stilllifeguild.com)) I am a member (along with everyone else who isn't the GM)

Why did you chose to join your current guild?
When the reroll with the aforementioned group of RL friends didn't work out as planned, I looked for a raiding guild which fit my later schedule and ended up transferring to join SL.

What is the highest level of progression you have achieved?
Killed Illidan almost exactly a year ago. Our guild stopped raiding before sunwell was released, however, due to mass boredom caused by a lack of content.

What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it?
Loot is decided within class chat channels. All members of the class discuss who needs the upgrade more. If a decision can't be reached, they roll. If an item is good for multiple classes, a representative from each class rolls and future drops are rotated between classes based on that roll.

We have a very tightly knit group of dedicated raiders, so loot has never been an issue. This "system" seems to divide loot in a way which is best for the guild as a whole.

What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch?
I took a break from WoW once my guild stopped raiding, but just recently reactivated my account. I am rolling a DK as my new main, so I've spent the last few weeks gathering mats for his BS and getting gold for his mounts, etc.

What is your guild doing to prepare for it?
We stopped raiding a few months after our Illidan kill, with plans to start back up at WotLK. We are currently recruiting to fill empty spots that our hiatus has left us with.

* How many guilds have you been a part of? Four
* What faction do you play primarly? Why? Alliance, because my ex-boyfriend's ex-girlfriend got me into WoW and I started with her faction.
* In any of these guilds have you been an officer, raid leader, or GM? Officer and class leader
* What is your current guild name? What is your position in this guild? Recently unguilded, I was primarily an offtank sometimes main tank.
* Why did you chose to join your current guild? Chose my last guild because they were just far enough ahead in progression for me to catch up without missing out on SSC/TK. It's a well known guild on my server, known for being a solid raiding guild.
* What is the highest level of progression you have achieved? I have seen all of Hyjal and BT. Would love to step into Sunwell once before the expansion if at all possible :p
* What loot system does your guild use? Are you happy with it? They used DKP and it seemed to work fairly well? Only thing I didn't like is that when I took a break from WoW my dkp was erased :-/ Maybe a deduction is more appropriate.
* What is are your feelings on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion? What are you doing to prepare for it's launch? Seems like it's going to completely change the game and bring back the awesomeness of pre-BC that I missed out on since I started playing not long after BC came out. To prepare... trying to get my shammie to 70 in time, which will happen she's at 68 now. Still deciding if i'll choose my shammie or warrior to raid on... I might be in need of a change but a lot of ppl want me to tank for them still.
* What is your guild doing to prepare for it? Someone told me this is a strange idea, but i've heard my previous guild is going to give DKP for leveling. Not sure what else they're up to?
