Jan 8, 2017 ER Roleplay Guild Listing - 01/08/2017 The Earthen Ring RP Guild List was maintained many years by Shaw/Sullivan and later Gospel/Sinsolaria. With permission, I've started the thread anew to keep our server forums updated. The format (with a few adjustments) from the previous thread is used in this version to keep consistency. Credit for format is not my own. Post your guild info if you wish to be part of this list! Danke. ---- FORMAT Guild Name GM Short Description Recruiting: Open / Closed / Application Only RP Experience: Novice / Veteran / All RP Immersion: Complete / Voluntary / Casual Contact/PR: Name 1, Name 2, Name 3 ---- Extra Info About Format: Short Description. A tip on description: Keep it short! If people are interested by your blurb, then they can continue to your website or ER forum recruitment thread. Recruiting is the recruitment style of your guild. Open means that you /ginvite folks on the spot and/or recruitment is open. Closed means that you're not actively seeking new members, but may snatch up a brilliant star if you happen across one. Application Only means candidates can only join your guild via an application process. If there is another method of recruitment you use, please include it but also explain it a bit so folks know how to join. RP Experience is what kind of roleplayers you are generally looking for. Novice means you'll accept the greenest greenhorn. Veteran means you prefer experience. All means you welcome folks from all levels of experience. Like with recruitment style, if you have another way of describing this, please go for it! But include a small explanation. RP Immersion is how heavy roleplay in your guild is. Complete means you RP whenever you're in the game - your guildchat, your parties, your say/emotes are all in-character all the time. Voluntary means people RP when and where they want to, but are more often In-Character than not. Casual means you occasionally RP, but are equal parts out-of-character and in-character. Contact/PR are your go-to members for recruits to contact when/if they decide to join your guild. In addition to your Guild Website address, you can also include any recruitment or info thread you posted on the ER forums. (Definitely recommended so you can keep all your resources in one spot!) If there are any additions/adjustments you'd like to make to the format, go for it, but remember to keep it brief. The long write up can come with your recruitment thread or website!Arialynn54 Jan 8, 2017

47m Old School Role Call, Take Two Apparently Blizzard wasn't a fan of some old school Earthen Ringer's necro'ing the last Old School Role Call thread, but I enjoyed seeing old names pop back up from time to time so I figured I'd bring about round 2.

2d [A] Lunatic Friends LFM, cross guild welcome! Hello Earthen Ring! Lunatic Friends has raided as a guild in every tier since the Trial of the Crusader. We're a family friendly guild with players ranging from their teens to their sixties, with most falling in the late twenties to early thirties. We try to maintain a PG-13ish atmosphere in guild chat as well as in discord. We raid Wednesday and Thursday, 8pm till 11pm server time. We're currently 9/9 in Heroic TOS and looking for another few people of any role while we gear up for Antorus. Because we've got a little time before we start hitting the new content, we're able to work with someone not as geared if they're a good fit for the guild. Also not a dealbreaker is guild membership. We know quitting a guild where you have friends and memories is not something everyone wants to do and we’re happy to take members who want to raid without leaving their WoW home. What we do need: Preparation! Watch a video, read a guide, do whatever it is you do to make sure you know what to expect. We also expect everyone to have consumables ready and gems and enchants taken care of in advance, but we have a lot of members who are very much on top of their professions and who like helping out the team, so we strongly discourage members from spending gold on raid prep without asking around for help or checking the GB first. (As one of the keepers of enchanting mats gathered in raids, I can’t stress this enough: please ask! Unless you’re cross realm, in which case the last vestiges of the server based economy prevent us from assisting. GG Blizz.) If you’d like to give us a try you can reply here or message me, Yvandis, or Laalia in-game. Edit: UpdatedCylthia16 2d
2d [A] Sacred Recruiting [A]<Sacred> Earthen Ring [US] About Us: We are a end content focused guild that is friendly to others. We (generally) enjoy each other's company. We try to foster a mature guild environment that shows respect for all our players. We have a lot of helpful people in the guild to assist with almost anything. We do look to make sure people want to play this game, and not have us play it for you. We keep g-chat pg-13 with no cursing allowed. Recruitment Needs: Currently recruiting needs: Strong DPS, especially ranged, but all are welcomed to apply! Voice: Discord Raiding info: currentl 11/11 N & H Antorus We are currently trying to get a mythic roster together, and are looking for more raiders.

Players welcomed if you command a knowledge of the fights and gear correctly for the strong AoE damage needed, and Discord. How To Get In: There are a few ways to get in! If you currently reside on Earthen Ring message anyone in the guild at any time and then get in touch with an officer. You can also add my B-Tag and get in touch with me and I can answer any questions. Elay#1208 - aka Renala/ElaydáElayldá1 2d
2d [A/RP] <The Court of Lions> Recruitment Introducing The Court of Lions! <The Court of Lions> is a Heavy/Casual Roleplaying guild on Alliance side of Earthen Ring that dabbles in current PvE content. We do not have a dedicated Mythics+ group at the moment, but we do run Mythics and Keystone dungeons pretty regularly. So if you are an RPer that enjoys some PvE in a relaxed environment, we can provide that as well! The Lions have gone through a few changes throughout the years, beginning as The Conjurers Court in 2009 and until most recently we were The Royal Lions Brigade. We are one of Earthen Ring’s most active roleplaying guilds. Our mission is outreach and supporting new roleplayers, to bring active and public roleplay on the Earthen Ring community. We strive to be a place of inclusion and the idea that you can roleplay at any level and wherever place. Our community is proud to be place for new roleplayers and old roleplayers. We’re currently looking for additional members to our family and community. With the changing of leadership to Grand Magister Barbro, we leave behind the more military aspect of The Brigade, and with a nod to our Court beginnings are renewed as <The Court of Lions>. We look forward to roleplaying or seeing you in-game! Guild Website: Whisper any officer or member online if you are interested in joining our ranks! We do an In Character interview as part of our recruitment process. Current officers: GM Barbro, Co-GM Gaylic, Quillson, Dione, Attridge, and KelsusBarbro22 2d
2d [H] Story Night (RP) - See Schedule FYRP: The next Story Night on Tuesday, February 20. We'll be at Moonglade, in Nighthaven - First Building. 8pm EST. 8hugs* Upcoming Locations/Dates: --------------------------------------- 3/6 - Darkmoon Faire! Just take a left at the Boardwalk along the coast. ========================= This is an open, no-hassle rp event that is open to all. Stories are not mandatory, so sitting in is ok! It's also a good way of getting to know other Horde RPers in character. Can't find the location? - Just message me or join /forthehorde (the horde ooc rp channel) to get your bearings! :) Note: If no one gathers by 8:15pm, cancellations may occur. We'll go past 9:00 as needed, if not, open RP can start and the event will break camp - feel free to stay and RP afterward! Greetings all, For quite a few years now, I have been hosting the weekly "Story Night" aka "Tears Tuesday" Hordeside. For many, this is the first RP event folks see or experience. For all those that have come over the years, I appreciate you all taking the time to stop by and listen, being supportive and maybe share a story or two. One of the cornerstones of RP is respect. As RP seems to be seen as the "Wild West" as far as any "official" rules, respect for others is crucial for the RP community to grow and have fun. We all are in a RP community, whether we admit it or not. It's also a social outlet as well, which means the respect part of RP is all that much more needed in working together. I run a simple and civil rp event for a reason. The main goal is to have a no-pressure rp event and to have fun. The premise is simple - and was made like that by choice and design. A welcome event for both RPers and Non-Rpers to enjoy some stories and role-playing. The event is an example that: 1) RP is alive on Earthen Ring (For the naysayers that think otherwise.) 2) RPers are people too, and some great ones at that. (For those that believe stereotypes.) 3) RPing can *gasp* be fun. (For those that think RP is a waste of time.) All I do is host and organize, without those that come, it's nothing - so I thank you all. Thanks to the < Tears of Draenor > and the ooc rper channel forthehorde as well for the support as well behind the scenes. Also thanks to Ilemnemis for hosting the reboot of the old "Tears Tuesday" years ago before I was host. Stay safe and Godspeed. "Shaw"Shaw249 2d
3d [A/RP] <Templars of the Rose> Recruiting Update 11/27/2017 ---- Hey there, roleplayers! Templars of the Rose is an RP-PvE guild that founded October 3, 2007. We became a multi-game guild in 2013 and play in Star Wars: The Old Republic, Guild Wars 2, Secret World: Legends, Destiny 2, Pathfinder, Minecraft, Overwatch, Conan Exiles, and more. We're primarily Alliance but have a sister Horde guild, Blood of the Rose, that's full of alts and advances our WoW storyline. We love all things WoW, starting with roleplay and a dash of raiding on the side. Out-of-Character: About Us Templars is a close-knit circle of folks from all walks of life. Ages range from 22 - 60+ and roleplay/gaming experience ranges from beginner to veteran. We take all roleplay experience types and love to train new roleplayers. Other Games Since WoW isn't the all-you-can-eat game buffet these days, if you're ever feeling WoW burnt out, there's no need to say goodbye to good guildmates. You can hop to another game for a little while and already have a starting point of faces you know! Interested In Joining? I invite you register and apply on our website, TRGNetwork (The Rose Gaming Network) at To see the group you're joining, see us in action in our former home of Theramore: Contact If you have any questions, toss a whisper to any online member or reply to this thread. Below are the main contact persons. Contacts Arialynn (GM) Jarrick (Raid Lead) Sielic (Recruitment) Zenruid (Roleplay) In-Character: The Story Thus Far Till Mists of Pandaria, the Rose was neutral toward the Horde-Alliance war, instead rallying against world-ending causes such as the Burning Legion, Scourge, and other global threats. However, with the rise of Garrosh Hellscream and destruction of Theramore (where the Rose's primary operations were based), the Templars declared war to oust him as warchief. Since the younger Hellscream's fall, the Rose has again distanced itself from Alliance and Horde skirmishes and found a new home in the Howling Fjord, Northrend. It now rises to battle against the Burning Legion's tide in the Broken Isles and rally any others to the cause. The Templars are battle-hardened warriors and specialize in front-line wars. Also neutral, its sister-side Horde guild, Blood of the Rose found itself at odds with Garrosh Hellscream's aggressive anti-Alliance stances. The order was forced into hiding to avoid Hellscream's Kor'kron agents rooting out dissent, but many of its members were hunted down during Hellscream's regime. The survivors aligned themselves with the Darkspear Rebellion led by Vol'jin to oust Hellscream. Even more fell. Following this dark time, the Bloods have been rising from war's ashes and laying the foundation of a renewed order. Bonds have been rekindled with its Allianceside sister order and the Bloods also rise to combat the Legion in the Isles. Raiding We raid with a dedicated in-house team of raiding roleplayers we trained back in Cataclysm. We incorporate raiding into the overarching guild storyline. Our progression raiding ("Black Watch") is weekly on Wednesday nights. A casual alt raid runs bi-weekly on Saturday afternoons. We have dedicated Mythic+ dungeon teams and regularly push Mythic 11-12 content. WoW Insider Featured Articles Our guild was featured in WoW Insider's 15 Minutes of Fame in 2010, 2012, and 2013: Podcast Two members also host a WoW Lore and RP-centric podcast called Lorecast. We invite roleplayers to listen as a resource, source of fun host banter, and general fun. Check us out at: 3d

6d LF Casual Guild Hello, As the title says are there any casual guilds on this server currently recruiting? I've been on a long break and have come back with all the stuff being added in to BfA. I am a pretty casual player nowadays and am generally on most evenings. I'm looking for a guild that does pvp, maybe raids, etc. Honestly I'm just looking for a good group of folks to chat and play WoW with during the times I'm on. I'm open to RP guilds as well but I have no experience in it at all and am unsure if I'd be up to fully committing to RP. Thanks, -XilenXilen0 6d

Feb 2 Graveyard Shift [A] The Late Night Community Are you someone that frequently, or exclusively, plays WoW during the latest of hours at night and into the morning light? If so, then you are well aware of the lack of community and activity at that time. Pugs can easily be the worst of the daily batch, the number of active guilds is extremely slim, and you often get the leftovers for Mythic+ and PvP groups. What's worse, is when a formerly reliable late night guild's activity starts to decline, your selection of new guilds is often coupled with a hefty server change cost (and sometimes faction change too). This is where Graveyard Shift comes in to play! Graveyard Shift is a new Discord community that strives to cater towards players that claim the world of Azeroth between 9:00 PM and 11:00 AM Eastern time. The idea behind Graveyard Shift is for you to no longer need to switch servers, or guilds, unless you desire to. This is the not-guild guild, where it doesn't matter what server you are on or what guilds you are in. We have tools to help you get the right info out to other community members so you don't have to bog your friends list down. Currently we are only supporting the Alliance faction, but if the demand grows we will venture into the Horde. At Blizzcon 2017 it was announced that a new "Community" feature will be added to WoW with Battle for Azeroth. Essentially this looks to be an in-game version of Discord. Once the feature launches, we plan to make every use of it in tandem with this Discord server. More information will become available once the feature reaches the PTR. Some, but not all, of the activities and interests you can find here include: • Legacy raiding and achievements • Rare mount/toy/pet farming • Casual and progressive raiding • PvP (Arena teams and Rated Battle Grounds) • Community events: Transmog parties, group leveling events, and more Graveyard Shift is completely open for anyone to join at any time. Anyone can create an event at any time, but those that continuously and reliably create and lead events can become Event Hosts. Everything in WoW is open to cross realm activity now, with the exception of current tier Mythic raiding. Join Graveyard Shift today! Feb 2

Jan 29 What happens to us as an RP server? Hello home. I posted a suggestion on the general forum about what to do with RP servers once they remove the PVP/PVE server distinction, since they seemed to completely forget about us. I described a little of our situation here on ER and why this option would be especially beneficial to us and realms like ours. Please, if you have a chance, read the post and offer feedback. We cannot be overlooked.Xiolableu15 Jan 29
Jan 23 Denizens of Pandaria [A&H Discord] After seeing an increasing number of Yaungol, Saurok, Hozen, and even Mogu RPers, I was happy to see such activity from races involving one of my favorite expansions. However I always found it hard to keep track of everyone so any kind of event seemed difficult. So, I made this Discord. The Denizens of Pandaria is a cross-faction, cross-server, Discord server that serves to bring people of similar RP together to allow for networking so we all don't lose track of each other. Do you RP one of the following races? Mogu Jinyu Hozen Yaungol Grummle Saurok Mantid Pandaren If so we'd love for you to join and hang out! Although it's not just restricted to those specifically. Monks of all races are welcome to join, maybe you're a Zandalari troll who stook around? Or is your RP in general deeply tied to Pandaria? Ultimately we love Pandaria and if you love Pandaria too we'd love to have you with us! Jan 23
Jan 23 <Ascendant> <Ascendant> is recruiting for Heroic Antorus, the Burning Throne! Fridays, and Saturdays - 8:15 PM - 11:30 PM EST A little background about our guild: We have been established for about two and a half years on this server. We have always thrived on having a great community within the guild, and also holding a progressive raid team. The last two expansions we have been an Ahead of the Curve guild. Our demeanor is mainly casual, we do take our raid progression a little more seriously while still making it a friendly and casual environment. Where we are currently: Currently as our progression stands we are currently at 8/11 Heroic in Antorus. Many of us have cleared the raid on other characters and such, but recruitment on Earthen Ring has been kind of tough due to a small server population. What we are looking for: We are currently in search of exceptional DPS, healers (preferably monk, priest, or paladin), and tanking / healing off-specs are highly encouraged! We would like players with an item level at a minimum of 930, and with experience of the raid at least cleared on normal. We do not mind helping gear players!! Our future goals: Ultimately we would like to jump into Mythic progression. Our server is of low population, so when it comes to dedicated raiders it becomes slim pickings and can be quite tough to recruit locally. Loot rules / trial period: Every new raider is required to go through a trial period. While we won't make you transfer just to trial with us, it is encouraged that you download our addons. For loot we use EPGP (DKP Reloaded), and EPGP Loot Master. As far as trialing goes, you will earn points from raiding with us, however you are not guaranteed any tier or trinkets over a current core raid member. Honestly at this point though, we don't really need much so it should not be any issue. If you trial well, and we decide you are a fit for the team, we may be willing to pay for your transfer. I think that pretty much covers everything. If there are any other questions, you'd like to inquire about trialing, please don't hesitate to reach out! BNet: dattmahl#1158Evervine0 Jan 23
Jan 18 [H] <Remnants of Darkness> (6/11H) LFM DPS <Remnants of Darkness> is looking for more DPS. We have a very tight group of raiders and are looking to add more DPS to the family. We raid Tu/Wd 8-11 EST - If you can make this schedule and are interested in raiding, hit me up. We have, as a guild, achieved every "Ahead of the Curve" available this expansion and will obtain the one for Throne as well. If you would like to be a part of our little raid family then hit us up in-game and we can talk about it. We will be moving into the next expansion as a raiding guild as well. If interested, please reach out to: Squidsalot#11464 - GM Dzargul#1938 - Raid Lead and Officer Theundies#1447 - OfficerFathersquid0 Jan 18
Jan 18 [A] <Retaliation> 11/11H LFM! ... **We are currently recruiting to balance our roster! Please see the "Who We Are Looking For" section for more details** <Retaliation> is looking for players who are interested in the following: Progression (Heroic) and/or casual (Normal) raiding Mythic+ dungeon progression Casual PVP (Battlegrounds, etc) Must be 18+ years old Must use Discord for voice communication during group activities About Us: Our guild was established in 2007 when we were playing Warhammer Online, and since then we have played various games together, including Guild Wars 2, Rift, SWTOR, Elder Scrolls Online, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, and Diablo 3. Many of us work full-time (average age is mid-30's) and can no longer commit to hardcore raiding progression due to out-of-game responsibilities. However, that doesn't stop us from having fun and clearing content when we are together! Our primary goal is to clear heroic raids and obtain the "Ahead of the Curve" achievement before the next tier of raid content is released. Even though we are on an RP server, we unfortunately do not participate in RP activities. Who We Are Looking For: We are looking for "midcore" players who play for fun, but also take the time to min/max their characters. Since we all have busy lives outside of the game, we are building a community of players that give 110% to maximize their performance. Successful raiders in our guild are characterized by two things: 1) personality; and 2) type of player. Gear is easy to get, but being a good team player is not.

Jan 14 [H] <Sons of Hellscream> recruiting Sons of Hellscream, 10/11H, is recruiting ranged dps, preferably with healing off-spec, for our Dysfunctional Casualcore mythic team. Raid times are Sa/Su 8:15-11:00. We have a million druids, so please don't be a druid. Though, any talented and reliable dps or healer should contact an officer in game to be considered for raiding (Smith, Star, Squirral, Phrenominon, Tattiyana; or ask a member to direct you). We are always accepting depraved or depravity-curious individuals for social membership. If a drunken pornographic circus is not your thing, move along.Mizzcleo0 Jan 14
Jan 13 [H] Hosting Tmog Contest every Friday! I am a freshly-leveled reroll to the ER server and I want to keep my old trend of doing weekly mog contest here as well. Every Friday night at 9:30 server I will begin advertising it in /2, and every Friday at 10 server I will begin the judging process. For now, it is just me judging though perhaps some fans will decide to form a council and help. The process will be simple, just line around the inner circle of Krasus Landing in Dalaran and whisper me for an invite to the raid group. After that, strut your stuff, follow instructions and have a good time! There are just a few rules: 1 - Tier sets, pvp sets, etc are excluded from this in all situations, though mix and match pieces are okay (it's not cool to take credit for blizzard's artists as your style!). 2 - You must have armor equipped in every slot that cannot be hidden via the tmog interface (no showing up nakey!). 3 - You may not mount a Grand Expedition Yak past 9:59. When the clock strikes 10, you're in uniform! 4 - You may speak to others in /s, but /ra is reserved for information pertaining to the contest. 5 - If asked to perform certain emotes, please comply. I'm just splitting you up in a way that you hopefully won't catch on to. Every week there will be a prize to incentivize performance, though again as a fresh reroll it will probably be small. I look forward to seeing your best dressed attire! *Edited for grammar and typosCozart0 Jan 13

Dec 19 High/Erratic latency For the past several days (probably all week, really) I've been experiencing wildly erratic latency numbers and frequent lag spikes. This only seems to happen on ER though. I've tried several other realms - even creating a few new characters to test it - and I've not had the problem on any of them. Has anyone else noticed this?Khromgar2 Dec 19
Dec 12 Roleplayers Connect Discord Welcome to Roleplayers Connect! This server has been around for a few months, as it was originally a RP server Discord channel. However, the moderators have recently decided to convert it to allow ALL roleplayers access. This Discord is designed with the intention of helping the RP community across servers to thrive and grow. This is especially important with the upcoming expansion, Battle for Azeroth. We’re hoping to set up this server as a means for ALL role players and RP guilds to connect, network, meet and chat. Reminder: this server will only be active if you all choose to make it so. The more activity within the Discord, the more useful members will find it. 
The server is equipped with: + Server categories! Each RP server will have their own category that includes channels for guild bases and guild advertisements. If your server does not have a category yet, message a moderator to set one up + Factional Roles Dyno bot has been put into place to allow all members to give themselves a role. Once must simply type !rank [rank name] into the #bot_spam channel. The ranks included are Alliance, Horde and Guild Representative. + Voice Channels There have been a few voice channels added in case members choose to network via choice chat. + Facebook Group Ads Many RP servers have a respective Facebook group. Those groups will be added on the front #welcome page for easy access. Moderators have only been put in place to help keep an eye out for potential drama! There are only three rules we ask members to abide by: 1)Be friendly/kind to one another! 2)Avoid controversial topics. 3)No trolling or bashing other members and guilds. Access Link: [[ We are currently looking for more moderators to help manage server guild base channels! DM a moderator if you wish to apply! ]]Kalepathe0 Dec 12
Dec 10 Oceanic RPer Discord Hello Earthen Ring! I started a discord for people playing during Oceanic hours. You might be in Australia, New Zealand or another Oceanic location. You might be a late shift worker from the USA. You might be a vampire. Whatever reason you have for eating dinner at 3am server is fine — this discord is for RPers that share your schedule. Horde & Alliance Welcome!! I made this discord to prepare for an amazing feature coming in B4A: WoW Communities. This feature will allow us to join multiple guild-like groups (with chat and calendar marking!) on a character basis & across servers. For example: <Azerite and Arcwine> <Gnome Girl Power> <Void Elf & Worgen ERP Manor> <Oceanic RPer Chill Mythic Runs> <Tusks of Mannoroth Support Group> <Dwarf Only Raiding> I think this feature is going to be fantastic for RPers and will definitely be a boon for those of us playing on American RP servers from odd timezones.Sef0 Dec 10

Dec 4 <Lost in Time>Progressive Raiding; now in TBC ***UPDATE AUGUST 17, 2017*** As of this update we have 89 members across 56 accounts. We are running two seperare MC groups each week, both have had 10/10 runs and working towrds our 3 raid group for the start of September. We have dungeons groups running almost daily gaining pre-mc BiS gear and working on attunements for MC. We are in the process of voting within the Guild to unlock BWL to start progression in that raid tier. I anticipate BWL unlocking around the same time the 3rd raid teams starts. We are looking into adding PvP officers to organize and coordinate guild PvP events as well so we can have both PvE and PvP progression in the guild. We are an active 1-60/70/80 Progression Guild and we want to add more players interested progressing from level 1 to MC to ICC. Lost in Time is aiming to create a community for players who enjoy the era of World of Warcraft from Classic through Wrath of the Lich King. We have a tentative launch of July 12th, 2017 and are seeking members who want to play through Legacy content level locking at 60/70/80 for progression from Molten Core through Icecrown Citadel and everything in between. We will be an Alliance Side guild here on Earthen Ring. More information and an application can be found at our website: Questions can be answered directly in our Discord: You can also add Xaqshnr#1186 via battle.netKanicus45 Dec 4
Nov 30 RP server Hello, thinking of making a toon here, but how is the rp here?Tharzargus1 Nov 30
Nov 30 Level 70 Twink Raiding Guild [Active] Name: The Búrning Crusaders Acceptable Races: - Currently, all races are acceptable. Accepted Classes: - All (currently) - I have not looked into how classes such as the Death Knight and Monk function in a raiding environment at level 70, we may find since gear is not tunned specifically for either that they prove to be underpowered….however, we may also find since they are newer classes not originally from TBC that they over excel! If you want to try them out, do so, and we can see how it goes :) Accepted Levels: - 1 to 70 - If you are below 70, you are of course welcome in the guild and we shall help you level through outland to get to the cap! There will usually be others around your level doing the same. - We do NOT take anyone higher than 70, even alts. This is to prevent any carrying or unbalance. BoA?: -BoA is a great tool to get your levels fast, and I recommend using it if you have it so you can jump into our raids ASAP! But, once you hit 70 you must replace the BoA with normal gear from heroics, quests, crafts etc etc. We do not really want BoA in raids, or at least want 90% of your gear to be non-BoA. If you need help getting gear, just ask :) Main Focus: - TBC Progression Raiding, our main goal is to play as if we are back in the good old days of TBC! - Possibly TBC based RP (side focus) - Profession Leveling up to TBC Main Rules: - On reaching level 70, you must to go to Stormwind Keep and find ‘Behsten’ the ‘Experience Eliminator’ and lock yourself at level 70. - You MUST follow level cap rules, as there will be no ‘carrying’ through raids to get armour. It will be a group effort. We raid as a guild, not taken through by a 90 so we can shoot ahead with gear. The fun is in doing the raid, getting the gear, enchanting etc…not shooting to the top and being the best. - No outside professions. You may SEND mats to your TBC alt, they have to make them! *important* - it is forbidden to buy your character 70 PvP equipment to use in-raid. Any item that has a PvP stat on it that does not come from one of the raids will be dismissed and you will be asked to replace it. We are, at the moment, PvE orientated and I do not want any ilvl boosting via PvP gear. You are of course, able to buy your character PvP armour/weapons at your discretion to use in non-raid related activities. But they will have no weight on your raid tier rank etc. Ranks: (See ‘Raids’ for tier and ilvl info.) - Overlord – The Guild Leader - Dungeon Master – People tasked with leading raids, setting dates and handing out loot. - Tier4 Raider – Someone who is geared enough to join in on Tier 4 raiding, able to apply to become a dungeon master. DM’s also server as guild officers. - Tier3 Raider – Someone who is geared enough to join in on Tier 3 raiding. - Tier2 Raider – Someone who is geared enough to join in on Tier 2 raiding. - Tier1 Raider – Someone who is geared enough to join in on Tier 1 raiding. - Gearing – Someone who is recently new to the guild and needs help gearing and raising their ilvl to the first raid requirements. This can be done via outland questing, and TBC Heroic dungeons! - Within the guild, there will be ranks set up to ensure people who understand the rules and the raid are leading raid teams. Remember, we are not face-rolling anymore so mechanics matter! As well as distributing loot and whatnot, we may implement in a dragon kill point system, but it will all depend on what people want and think! Raids & Gear Score Guide: (Raids must be completed by each raider in the order below to progress.) Tier 1: - Karazhan, 10man. Ilvl: 105-115 - Magtheridon's Lair, 25man. Ilvl: 115-120 - Gruul’s Lair, 25man. Ilvl: 120-125 Tier 2: - Tempest Keep, 25man. Ilvl: 125 -130 - Serpentshrine Cavern, 25man. Ilvl: 128 -130 Tier 3: -Battle for Mount Hyjal, 25man. Ilvl: 130 – 145 - Black Temple, 25man. Ilvl: 134 – 150 Tier 4: - Sunwell Plateau, 25man. Ilvl: 150+ Profession Caps: All professions must be capped at 'Master' (375 skill points). Times: - We are currently raiding on the 26th, between 8:30pm-9.00pm - We have heroics scheduled in between raids at the same times If you wish to join, add DarkAposte#2319 and PM me asap so we can get you sorted for our up coming raid night :) You can also leave your in game contact info below if you wish, and I will mail you.Khadromars68 Nov 30
Nov 21 Project 70 Alliance Hey everyone, so as the title basically states, me and a friend of mine are going to be starting a project 70 guild on the alliance side. And we realize in todays WoW this content isn’t as hard as it used to be So we plan on taking smaller groups of people to try and accommodate for that We also realize that there may be no true point to doing this, but for me personally I don’t enjoy WoW as much as I used too, and BC was one of the better expansions in my opinion, back when everything always felt so fresh and new. So I want to go back to that Now nothing is set in stone yet, we don’t even have a guild title set in place, but here are a few ground rules that we’d like people to follow if they are interested -No gold from other characters, the only gold you can use is the amount you have earned while leveling on your 70 -No race/class that was introduced after burning crusade, this includes race and class combinations. So this means no dwarf shamans or human hunters -We will allow heirlooms for leveling until BC content is reached. The point of this entire thing is to be able to progress through the BC content, and to do that we first have to get through vanilla content first. After you hit level 58, all heirlooms gotta go -No pvp gear, its too easy to get. This includes the level 60 pvp gear and the brutal gear at 70 Basically everything prior to level 58 (the BC content) is valid, but when you step through that dark portal (or teleport straight through it now /sigh) act as if its burning crusade I know whenever something like this is getting advertised there is always going to be people just wanting to be rude and try and ruin the fun, so if you don’t want to partake in this just click off this post, but some people do. And once again I realize the game has changed, but some people don’t like the change and maybe want to try and get those nostalgic feelings again But would people be interested in this? I figure a max of 10 people for the 25 mans and 5 people for the 10 man, would be enough to clear the content at a reasonable pace. Please let me know your throughs and feedback!Kryptòn3 Nov 21

This post is to help folks looking for a home on Earthen Ring to RP and find community. :) The information below is as accurate and honest as it can be based on my observations and conversations with the RP community.

Nov 15 The Katasi <A> Raiding AND Roleplay The Katasi is a new guild that will be doing everything: TL;DR: We want to become an awesome guild doing awesome things. We offer Raiding for the raiders and RP like no other. We accept people who just want to RP, Raid, and people who want to do both (never mixed). For the Raider: We're starting at the bottom (current content) and pushing up to heroic. We won't be going to mythic unless there's a good reason. Raiders are required to be mature, patient, and supportive above all else. Raiding Seasons! - We all have busy lives and sometimes we cannot predict the our lives indefinitely. We all have jobs / families / school and those come first. A 'Season' is 6 weeks. You sign up for a season. Signing up guarantees you a spot on the team for 6 weeks. Every season, we rebuild the core raid team. This allows us to rotate roles, characters, and players. For the Roleplayer: We offer a story-driven RP (Sorry, no pub crawls here, probably ever). Each member is assigned or attached to an RP Division. A division is comprised of a Division leader, their right hand, and 3-5 other members. Each week, the RP divisions will RP missions (run-jump-go-do missions) and further the story. Here's where it gets interesting... While the RP story is created by the highest in the leadership, how it unfolds is up to the members. It works like this: I create a story about a little old lady who needs us to find her family beer barrel. I will introduce the story publically, in character along with a mission objective of "It was last seen near their family home outside duskwood". Division 1 is to secure the town, Division 2 is to look for the barrel. I then take the leaders of the divisions and tell them (in tells) options. For Division 2, I might tell the leader "Option A: You find the barrel and return it to me on next week's RP, Option B: You cannot find it, but you do find a strange amulet with a horde insignia on it, Option C: You don't find anything at all" The division leaders get to DM their own adventures, thus putting the story in the hands of people further down the chain. I will use the next week to figure out what all the possible outcomes could be and when reported the next week, I'll send out the divisions on a new set of missions. Here's the cool thing, if the Division wants to run the mission that night and knock it out, cool. If they want to RP it over the course of the next week, cool too! There are usually 2 story arcs running. One 'guild' story, and one 'personal' story arc. So PLENTY of RP. There are 3 rules: 1. Be respectful of another member's playstyle 2. Be patient as some of our members will be new. We are not elitists. 3. Don't be a jerk. So if you're a roleplayer, a raider, or both, send me a tell and we can talk about membership!Equillian0 Nov 15
