<Tempest> auspicious raiding for the temporally-challenged After a long and prosperous 9 month journey, Tempest has officially ceased raiding on Netherwing. Thank you to everyone who has been part of our family and thank you to the development team for making our journey possible! KEY POINTS: 2 main raids per week, Thursdays and Sundays, 19:00-23:00 CET (server time) Optional farm raids on Mondays Tight-knit and welcoming community that formed on Netherwing, headed by experienced & passionate leadership Zero-tolerance for hate speech of any kind Loot Council 3/5 MH, 3/9 BT WHO WE ARE We are veteran WoW players who are no longer able to dedicate enough time to the game to engage in competitive raiding at the cutting edge. Instead, we put our knowledge and experience to good use, allowing us to enjoy smooth and drama-free raid progression at a slower pace and in a relaxed atmosphere. With Tempest, our goal is to build a community of like-minded players, dedicated to experiencing all the content that Netherwing TBC has to offer. Our leadership has a wealth of experience from high-end raiding both in past and present expansions of retail World of Warcraft, as well as numerous private servers. We are a chill, but passionate bunch and 100% focused on the guild's long-term success, so if our approach to the game appeals to you, this is your chance to get in on the ground floor. WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR We are looking for players who, like us, are passionate about the game, but have limited available play time. We expect our members to invest themselves in their characters and use their time in-game to the fullest - efficiency is the name of the game. Our views on min-maxing are simple: you may freely choose any spec or profession for your character that you want, as long as you can meet a high standard of performance. Our officers are always ready to lend a hand or offer advice, but ultimately it is your responsibility to perform to your character's potential and contribute to our guild's progress. In the same vein, you should be able to put the good of the guild above your character's individual advancement. We value mature players who are able to invest themselves in the guild, actively avoid drama by utilizing appropriate communications channels and exercise restraint when necessary. Previous experience with high-end raiding is a plus, but it is certainly not a requirement, as long as you are willing to put in the necessary work like the rest of us. We expect you to come to our raids prepared with consumables and full knowledge of the encounters. If you are someone that takes pride in not getting carried, you are going to fit right in regardless of your experience level. GUILD COMMS All guild communications are in English. If you would like to communicate with your compatriots in your native language you are more than welcome to do so, but please keep it in private channels. We want to foster a friendly, tight-knit community and everyone being able to understand each other is the only way we will be able to reach that goal. Needless to say, don't be a dick to your fellow players. We have a zero-tolerance policy towards racism, homophobia or any other form of hate speech. RAID SCHEDULE Our main raids will be taking place on Thursdays and Sundays, 19:00-23:00 CET. Our farm raids will be taking place on Mondays, 19:00-22:00 CET. Progression (with mandatory attendance) may be extended to the Monday slot in exceptional circumstances. We require our raiders to maintain at least 90% main raid attendance. Both raiders and socials are welcome to join our optional farm raids, but raiders get priority spots if interest is high. LOOT POLICY We are using Loot Council. We strive for equitable loot distribution, corrected for personal reliability and performance. Class-based differences in performance will only be taken into account as a tie-breaker, when all other considerations result in a deadlock between two players. The Loot Council consists of 4 officers and a rotating member of the raid team. The rotating members of the raid team will be selected randomly from a pool of eligible raiders for a month-long period. The pool of eligible raiders consists of the top 20% of raiders with the highest raid attendance that have not yet held the position during the current raid tier. The officers may veto a raider that they consider unsuitable for the position, thus removing them from the pool of eligible raiders. All communications related to the Loot Council and loot distribution are private. APPLICATIONS If you are serious about raiding on Netherwing and wish to join the Tempest raid team, submit your application using the form and you will hear back from us in a couple of days at the latest. We are currently only considering applications from level 70 characters with at least full pre-BiS gear. If you would like to be a part of our guild, but aren't interested in high-end raiding or just aren't sure yet, submit an application anyway and join up as a social - you can always apply to the raid team later on, plus we'll get to know each other in the meantime. If you have any questions about the guild or the application process, feel free to ask it in this thread. RAID TEAM RECRUITMENT STATUS Tempest is not recruiting.
