Topic <Faded Dreams> hosting GDKP run Saturday 5/12
Edited by Agashi on 5/5/12 9:59 PM (PDT)
Misconceptions about GDKP:
There is always public scrutiny and misconceptions about GDKP whenever we advertise in trade chat. Most of the misconceptions are 1) Oh, its FD, they just want gold from us 2) I want gold, but I'm undergeared. I can still come right? 3) This is a SCAM!!!!!
First of all, 85% of the gold that is spent on GDKP come from our guild members. So, in essence, you are taking gold from us! Not only do we fork over most of the gold, but we bring our geared alts that basically carry the raid. Hence, you are not feeding us gold. Secondly, there is a reason why we don't accept just anyone to our run. If you are undergeared, you are holding back our raid since you offer nothing for us. On top of that, if you don't have gold, you are not only holding our raid back, but you are taking up valuable space for people who would like to spend some gold on gear they can actually use. If you can't offer anything, you are not wanted. Lastly, this is not a scam. GDKP has been around for a long time and it offers a good raiding experience for people who would like to make some gold and get some gear. We have completed several successful runs already, and each player got a nice chunk of gold at the end of each run. Everything is legit and <Faded Dreams> would never participate in scamming people.
If you think you're a geared experienced player, come join us and make some gold with us. We welcome people who are willing to have fun for one night and possibly make some gold at the same time!
Addon used for GDKP: http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/gdkpd
Please try to get that addon installed. It is highly recommended for you to install that addon because it makes bidding and watching auctions much more easier. So make it easier on yourself and download it before coming to raid on Saturday!

What is GDKP?
GDKP is a gold bidding pug run system. What this means is, every loot will be bid on with a minimum gold requirement to purchase that item. Whoever wins the bid, keeps the item. This includes Tier Tokens, Legendary quest items, non-Tier (397) gear, and even trash drops. Every single pattern or boss drop will be up for bidding. At the end of the raid, the gold collected will be distributed evenly between the entire raid.
*** There is no Main Spec or Off Spec priority. You bid it, you buy it. ***
Who gets invited?
We need several different types of people to make this raid efficient. Our guild already has many geared alt toons that will be joining this run. We will have a handful of players that will "carry" the raid, so they basically want to come to make some gold/motes. We also need people that are decently geared, but just need a few items from the boss. These people will need to bring gold to buy off those coveted items. Next, we will be taking some majorly undergeared people who will basically spend anything for an item, and the ones that will want to buy the items that almost everyone passes on. This way, we will balance out the raid to clear as much content needed, and to get the most gain in gold at the end of the raid. Each gear will be bid in increments of 500G. For example, if I start a bid on a Tier item starting at 5K, the next bidder MUST bid 5,500 to outbid the previous bid.
Now for the rules....
1) We will be taking people with mostly an ilevel gear of 384 or higher. These people will fill the raid that will help clear content smoothly, have the experience at least in LFR with the boss mechanics, and will bring a lot of gold.
2) You must have some experience in Dragon Soul. If you do not have any experience whatsoever with the bosses in DS, you will most likely not get into the raid.
3) We will only take 2-3 undergeared players who have a main character that has DS experience, but needs gear on their alt. These players will essentially get "carried", but at least gear won't be wasted.
4) It is recommended that you bring at least 50K gold. If you do not have gold, and you fall in the category of "undergeared" or "barely 384 ilevel", then you will not get accepted to this raid. You MUST have gold to join this raid. Even our alts that are extremely geared are bringing gold, so I suggest you bring at least 50K.
5) Every item is up for bidding. This includes non-tier, Tier, trash drops, patterns, Legendary quest items, essence of destruction. Everything that is lootable will be up for bids. There is nothing that will be given out free.
6) We will be using an addon to keep track of the gold and what people have spent on the items. We will also be keeping track of them using our own notepad just in case the addon screws up. You have the right to keep track of everything yourself in case you think we might "cheat" you.
7) You must have 4 hours available for raiding. If you leave early, we will replace you and the new person that we replace you with will be getting your share of the gold. You will forfeit all gold once you leave early.
8) If you disconnect, the raid will wait. But if you are gone for more than 10 minutes, you will be removed from the raid and your gold will be forfeited. Make sure you notify us in whispers or in raid chat if you are planning to leave or "brb".
1) Tier Items - Minimum bid will start at 5K
2) Non-Tier items - Minimum bid will start at 3K
3) Trinkets and Weapons (403 level) - Minimum bid will start at 5K
4) Trash gear drops - Minimum bid will start at 1K
5) Essences and Patterns - Minimum bid will start at 500G
6) Legendary quest items - Only rogues can bid on the Elementium Gem Cluster. Highest bid wins. The bidding starts at 1K. If someone else bids on the Cluster, that is not a Rogue, you will pay for the item, but it will go to the Rogue that bid the next highest.
Our goal is to try and get through as much content possible in 4 hours. At the end of the 4 hours, we will divide the gold between each player evenly. We will attempt to do these runs regularly on Saturdays every week, but the schedule can change. We believe if we bring the same people weekly as people get geared up, the runs will run more smoothly and we can move to heroic content which will be more profitable for the raid.
Signup starts tonight. Contact Agashi via in-game mail or whispers if you want to sign up for the raid. We will thoroughly go through your armory and make the decision to invite you or reject you. You can also post here if you are interested.

I am interested in joining you (with the toon I am posting). Ilvl 394 in my PvE gear. I know all the fights in LFR (world ranked on fall of deathwing) and have downed 5/8 in 10 man. I also have well above the minimum gold required.

Stupid guild killed Madness too fast so we have nothing to do on Thursday.
We have alt runs on Friday working on heroics so weekends are bad too. We might move it to Saturday, but for this week it is Thursday.
