I will be hosting a GDKP run of 25 man Firelands on Friday November 4th at 7:25PM server.
What is GDKP?
- GDKP stands for "Gold-DKP"
- Items which drop in the run are auctioned off in raid chat. The highest bidder receives the item and the gold they pay is added to "The Pot"
-Profession Patterns, BOE's, Embers, etc are all auctioned off in this manner as well.
- "The Pot" keeps growing in value until the end of the run
- "The Pot" is split evenly at the end of the run to all 25 players in the raid present when the final boss dies. Everyone gets an equal share.
- There is no mainspec > offspec priority nor is there any class restriction. Anyone may bid on anything.
This is a GDKP run. All items of value (Epics, BOE's, Patterns) that drop will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. The combined Gold Pot from all Auction Sales will be split evenly 25-ways to everyone at the end of the raid. All enchanting mats will be kept by the raid leader for hosting the raid.
Raid members will only receive their share of the gold pot if they are present in the raid when the final boss dies, no exceptions. Any forfeited gold will be kept by the raid leader. You forfeit your share of the Pot if you have to leave early or need to be replaced. You may be replaced if:
- You AFK for more than 5 minutes without informing the Raid Leader
- You DC for more than 5 minutes
- Your Raid Performance is terrible, Eg: You don't listen to Raid Leader's instructions, DPS is terrible for your level of gear etc.
All Auctions and Bids will be in public raid chat. Items have minimum bids, but no maximum bid. No private tells for bids are accepted. No loot is reserved. No class/spec restrictions. All bids posted in raid chat are considered final. If you do not pay for an item you bid on you will be removed from the raid.
The quest item(s) for the Legendary Staff quest will all go to the same person with only one bid round per raid (if you pay for the item from Shannox, you get the items from all the bosses). This rule is for each level of quest item. Only the top bidder may collect Smouldering Essences. If you collect Smouldering Essences and are not the top bidder you will be removed from the raid.
If any of this is unclear or you have questions, please speak up now.
Who is eligible to attend?
I am looking to attract players from a few different backgrounds. The raid will need: Geared/skilled players that will want to come for gold, undergeared players with large wallets, and players that are in between the two. If you do not have a lot of gear nor are willing to spend, you are the lowest priority and will likely not be brought. Geared players will need a minimum of 7/7 experience and 370ilv to attend. Players in the middle will need a minimum of 6/7 experience and 360ilv to attend. Undergeared players will be brought on a case by case basis. Do not expect to come if you are not willing to spend at least 30k gold as a bare minimum.
How successful will this be?
The success of the raid will be determined by the strength of the group put together. My goal is to clear 7/7 within a reasonable amount of time, with few to no wipes. If there are too many undergeared buyers, the raid will likely fail. If there are too many geared raiders, the raid may not generate a large enough Pot. It is my job to put together the right mix of players to achieve success on multiple avenues.
Why does this benefit me?
You have to opportunity to accumulate a large chunk of gold simply by helping kill raid bosses. You can gear up undergeared alts, or bid on those last few pieces of gear you’re missing. Keep in mind there are no spec/class restrictions, so you have the ability to gear up alternative gear sets. 25 man also drops significantly more loot than 10 man, so there is more loot drops seen and more opportunities for the Pot to generate gold.
How do I know the pot won't be stolen by the leader?
There will be typed agreement at the beginning of the raid. If the pot would be stolen by anyone, a GM can intervene and split the gold among the players who were there.
