-----=====GUILD TYPE KEY=====-----

Q: What Kind of Raid Type is my guild?
If you are wondering about this question and what to put, consider the following question:
"What kind of player do you identify yourself with and wish to attract to your guild?"


Hardcore guilds seek not to be just the best on a server, but place in the top percentile globally. They seek world firsts, and server firsts are a given. These guilds have a robust and extensive raid schedule to say the least. Hardcore guilds clear all current normal mode content in less then 30 days of its implementation. That means a hefty raid schedule (5-7 days a week raiding on average). They have the strictest of performance and attendance requirements, and an intense admittance policy. These are typically stressful guilds, but not always. Maybe one carrot a month, the rest is all verbal stick. (There are currently no hardcore guilds on Malygos.)

Serious guilds are like hardcores, but with a slightly looser raid schedule, and generally a slightly more relaxed atmosphere outside of raiding. While the raids themselves are still very 'serious' in tone and nature, there is less overall intensity compared to hardcore. They generally seek to be the first on server, but beyond that their sphere of concern falls short. Typically they can be even stricter then hardcore guilds on attendance because of their fewer raid days, but not necessarily. More stick then carrot here.

Dedicated guilds usually have a schedule similar to serious guilds, that is more relaxed, but still enforce attendance but aren't extremely strict about it (guilds where you give advanced noticed you can't make it, and they don't gkick you for not being there, or where they understand RL happens, that kinda vibe). Dedicated guild members research their classes as well and generally try and perform really well in raids, but usually do so with a more relaxed atmosphere for the most part. These are the guilds most people like being in, but typically suffer from attendance problems (and well guild identity problems on what kind of guild they are) as they continually try and balance between the carrot and the stick.

Casual guilds ask people to show up, but don't particularly enforce attendance. They have a very loose raid schedule, that is more like a series of raiding guidelines for times to get together. These guilds are very easy to get in to and normally do not have an application or screening process beyond "hey I know him/her, they're cool". Lots of carrots here, very very few sticks.

Relaxed guilds pretty much just raid whenever people are on and don't normally have a set schedule. They don't care what you come as, or how bad you are usually, they care more about the social interactions that transpire both during and after raids - think social guild that raids. No sticks, all carrots.

Q: What do I do if my guild can't be clearly defined by one of these labels?
What if it is a mix of two?

If you find your guild is more like the combination of 2 definitions, you can establish it as such. For example, if you are somewhere between Serious and Dedicated, call it that "Serious/Dedicated". If you are a Casual guild, but when you raid you are very serious, then identify yourselves as "Casual/Serious". To help define what you mean by your combination, when you submit your guild entry, provide a definition to your newly defined guild type. This way players who see your mix and aren't exactly sure what you mean by it, can scroll down to your individual entry and learn first hand.

PLEASE NOTE: Raid Size must also be indicated. With the changes to raiding via Cataclysm it is now essential to indicate if you are a 10 man raid guild, or a 25 man raid guild. What ever the majority of your Guild Raids are during the week, 10 or 25s, is effectively what you are. Multiple 10 man raids makes you a 10 man raid guild. If the majority of your guild's raid weekly raid schedule changes to 25s, please update your information here accordingly.

-----=====LOOT TYPE KEY=====-----


DKP - Dragon Kill Points

GDKP - Gold Dragon Kill Points

SLS - Shroud Loot System
A heavily modified DKP system developed by the guild Shroud that attempts to correct perceived flaws in the original system.

EPGP - Effort Points Gear Points

SK - Suicide Kings

LC - Loot Council

LL - Loot List
A modified Loot Council system developed by the guild Reawaken of US-Staghelm. Requires raiders to present loot 'lists' from an instance in order of personal priority. High attendance is integral to equipment consideration. The system has displayed a fair distribution by not neglecting new raiders, and has since spread cross server to other raid guilds.

MS/OS - Main Spec / Off Spec /random loot priority distribution system.

MPQ - Minimum Performance Qualification
A modified MS/OS variation used primarily in PUG raiding. Individuals must meet required performance benchmarks in order to be eligible for loot, thus preventing freeloading and encouraging strong play.

FR - Free Roll without priority or formal limitations but often including consideration.

    Q: Why should we submit or update our guild info, or even use this resource?A: This resource is for people looking for a new guild from on server, and off server, and for those looking to create one by seeing when other guilds are already raiding. It is good for all guilds because it is another source of potential recruiting that further helps guilds acquire members that fit their raid schedules for one.

    Q: Why do we need to answer the additional questions about us, you have our web and schedule?A: Because for another reason, it is not only important to find a guild that fits a person's schedule, but also one that fits their frame of mind and play-style. This helps increase the likelihood of a more appropriate fit. Like minds with like minds as they say.

    Q: We already have recruit threads, why would we need this 'resource/guide'?A: Unfortunately the vast majority of guilds do not list their schedules in easy to find locations on their webpages, and there currently is no website that provides guild raid schedules on a server side by side with each other for quick referencing anymore then categorizing them by time periods. Additionally, this adds to your current recruit thread, and unlike those threads, it becomes a permanent recruit tool for you without you having to do anything except for the occasional update. Your guild info, status, and listing won't need to be '/bump'd because it will always be there at the top of the forums. By simply having your schedule shown can attract individuals to your guild without you even having to do anything.

    Additionally, raiders searching for a new guild that have used my other Raider Resources have found them to be incredibly helpful in their search. You simply only have to read the recruit threads from guilds that fit your schedule and style after quickly glancing at my resource. In essence, it dramatically cuts down in the amount of research you have to do to find a new guild.

    Q: Wait. You have more then one of these?A: Correct. The first one was started 11/13/2007 and is still maintained, but is noticeably less robust (as it caters to a casual server). Additional Resources have started being added since in March of this year. I have refined and streamlined it and learned what NOT to do and where to get my information more quickly. The process of adding them to additional servers continues.

    At a certain point all these individual realm resources will become connected to a master, as they will be included in a future resource on the Dungeon & Raids forum (possibly the guild recruitment forums as well). Once connected, this inner 'network' will greatly help with the facilitation of players finding more appropriate guilds and servers, drastically cutting down on the time spent arbitrarily looking for a new guild/server to play on/with.

    Q: What servers currently have a Raiding Resource?A: Malygos, Medivh, Illidan, Hyjal, and Korgath (in dev).

    Q: Won't this become an insane amount of work for you to maintain a bunch of threads?A: Surprisingly not. The initial setup takes the longest amount of time. After that it becomes simple maintenance. Because I provide formats for submissions, and requirements to submit, it becomes very quick and easy to update the threads as necessary. I've already been doing it for over 2 and a half years, and the amount of time to maintain one has been relatively minimal.

    ROLL CALL - Listen Up!

    The old Malygos Raiding Resource has had a hefty makeover since you all saw it last. This is to essentially update it to the new format and layout of the other resources I manage. Unfortunately most of my data for Malygos is 4 months old. Therefor..

    It is time for some severe updating by everyone for Cataclysm.

    No doubt there are a number of guilds in the listing that have disbanded or are defunct. Individuals helpfully and sincerely posting here to identify which of these need to be removed, will receive 'Pony Points' in response for your help. (You want these, trust me).

    Until the February 1st, I am temporarily holding off on the raiding for 3 weeks requirement in order to submit an entry. Thereby giving new guilds effectively a month to work themselves out, as well as old ones time to re-iron out their raid schedules now that things have changed so dramatically.

    Don't wait til later, it takes 30 seconds. Do it now. Any guild not updated fully and appropriately by February 1st, will be deleted.

    OH, and please mark this thread for a Sticky. Thanks much! =^)

    ABOUT MALYGOS - For those considering Transferring

    11/23/2010 02:13 PMPosted by Deathpony

    Malygos is a two sided coin.

    This was a 134th ranked server in terms of progression during Wrath of the Lich King (thats out of like 220 total, basically lower half). Population wise it is effectively a 3:1 server in favor of the alliance.

    The numbers difference has played a heavy role in determining the nature of each 'society' for each faction, which are completely opposite.

    Alliance economy is comparable to what you see on other servers, with slightly higher prices for high-end raid items then most. Horde side the economy is in a poor state, and things sell for a lot of money, but because of this there is incredible profits to be made. Yes, everything costs more horde side, but if you're actively selling, there is money to be made. This is because there is less AH competition essentially. The alliance market, you'll make less money as you have 20 people competing with you on any item you try and sell and will be undercut within seconds. Horde side, you can go for days without being undercut.

    Raiding with the Alliance is like baby-sitting egotistical elementary school kids suffering from A.D.D., and if you aren't stern and lay the law with regularly, they'll walk all over you and then drop raid. Horde are once again, completely different. Their lack of player resources has caused them to work with the understanding that you get what you can get and try not to complain about it. As such they have a greater willingness to work together, as has been shown with incredible results with the recent change to WG, as now the Horde dominate it because of their ability to work together as a team. They have their fair share of arrogant bastards and incompetent morons, but for the most part, they'll knuckle down and try and get thru it, where as the alliance raiders will just say screw it and bail.

    I lead raids in the exact same style on both sides, and my horde raids are profoundly more successful and enjoyable. Based on my personal experience, your average horde raider is entirely more honorable individual that understands the value of respect. There are some folks like this on alliance side, but they are peppered sparingly into a turbulent sea of annoying jackasses.

    Progression here collectively is mediocre. You got like 4 guilds (2 on each side) that really push for hardcore compared to the rest that are ho-hum. So you can basically find anything, but get into a solid and established guild or don't bother, as you'll just be guild bouncing every 3-6 months. That's an aspect that the horde and alliance actually share, they both create new guilds that fold just as often and as quickly.

    If I was going to transfer here, I'd do it as horde. In fact I'm debating pulling one of my toons from a 4th ranked server and bringing it here. Some of my most enjoyable moments playing, and raiding as well, have been with the horde of Malygos. They just make it worth it for me.

    If you're not interested in going horde, I'd say keep looking. In fact, I'd actually recommend playing on Medivh. They ranked mid 70's, are completely alliance dominated server, have tons of solid pugs (one goes 9/12 hm ICC25), multiple GDKP runs, good economy, and relatively mature community. I have an alliance toon there myself, and don't regret it at all. You can always find a raid that's going on that'll be reasonably successful.

    Good luck in your search.

    Just work out a loose raid schedule of when you guys usually end up raiding during the week. Unless Lobster's are 100% on-call medical doctors and deployed military personnel, I'm pretty sure when 10 of you find yourselves online together and able to raid for a couple of hours, the times don't really vary that much. Maybe start times or which days, but I'm sure you can work something make-shift out.

    With a 'loose' raid schedule like that, define your guild type as primarily 'casual'. Then pick a 2ndary term that better equates to your guild's raid style when you are actually raiding. Sounds like you could be 'Casual/Serious' or 'Casual/Dedicated'.
