[A] GDKP runs hit Whisperwind! DS25

Ladies and gentlemen, I know I'm not alone in this line of reasoning, but I feel it's time GDKP came to Whisperwind!

For those not aware of what a GDKP run is, I'll provide an outline. GDKP runs are like a normal run, but instead of the standard looting process, players bid gold on items, driving up the price until a winner is decided. At the end of a run, the "pot" of gold that has been gathered, is split evenly among all 25 players in the raid.

EVERYONE GETS AN EQUAL SHARE This is a great method for those players with excess gold craving that Cunning of the Cruel, or for geared players looking to make some extra coin.

As it stands, the run is planned beginning April 6th @ 7:00 pm Realm Time. The only thing that will prevent this from occurring will be lack of any interest at all, or a meteor causes my untimely death.

If you are interested in this GDKP run, please post here or whisper me in game on my toon, Zózo (alt code 162). I'm all about being transparent, reasonable and fair. If you feel you're undergeared, you're not excluded from being invited, as long as I can balance the raid equally. Alternatively, there will be a limit to the number of geared main spots available due to the very intent of GDKP runs.

For those looking for more info on the run, Elitist Jerks has a great writeup on it here:
http://elitistjerks.com/f15/t77416-gdkp_run_discussion_spread_your_server/

Here are some additional rules, ripped directly from the EJ page.

This is a GDKP run. All items of value (Epics, BOE's, Enchant mats, Orbs) 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.

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. 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. There is no extra loot/gold for the raid leader.

If any of this is unclear or you have questions, please speak up now.


Let the signups begin!

*Edit* Please have Ventrilo installed if you are interested! Server will be provided.
*Edit 2* Clusters will be available for purchase like a normal item. So rogues, come get your legendaries so I can fight you in the arena and lose.

I'll go - though I might not get home until slightly after 7pm server time.... but I'm definitely up for it.

This toon is pretty well geared and I'm definitely competent at the toon - I offer gold as there are some items I'd bid on - but mostly I offer myself as an experienced no-fail raider.

^.^ Never to late to faction change, Mr. Bear.

Been getting a lot of questions regarding the rogue clusters, so I'll answer that in the original post.

I would be interested in doing this, but Fridays don't work for me. I run an alt group at that time (Fridays at 7). If you ever decide to change the day of the week this happens, I would be interested.

I am however possibly available this coming Friday since it's a holiday weekend and I'm not sure my group will go due to attendance issues. If that's the case, I would like to attend either on my holy pally or weak mage :)

I was only pulled in for Deathwing and everything went smoothly! Zozo seems like a cool guy, and one you can definitely trust. I'm surprised the mount went for so low though. I look forward to the many more successful GDKP's!

Great run for sure, reliable. A shame the mount and some of the items went as low as they did though. If only things like CotC or Vial had dropped, we'd have seen a bigger pot. Also as an odd occurrence we had ZERO dk's ....and a bunch of vanq drops.

Definitely will go again if presented the chance.

When I signed up for the run I hadn't been paying attention that Friday was my birthday... so I was out having birthday fun.

However, if another GDKP run goes out, I'd definitely be down for it. I'll hope you do another one Zozo - sounds like it was a success.
