Guild Policies and Schedule

Hey all,

OK, let's get this guild going for real.

Guild policies:

1. Leave no man behind. On Thursdays, we will prioritise the levelling of every one to Level 70. Between 6 pm to 10 pm, contact any of the high level characters to get your difficult-to-solo quests completed. Or if you just want to meet at that time to run instances.

2. Have fun. Please do. If any of you are feeling left out, let one of the officers know. Usually Cuthalion or Tercul will be online.

3. No pressure. We're here to have fun, and not farm high-level/ end-game instances. We'll do that when we can, but before that, everyone gets to Level 70. This guild will move as quickly as its slowest member.

4. Looting. Please adhere to standard loot rules in instances. Otherwise, if there's something that is BOE and a blue and above, guildbank gets it and we will decide who in the guild (who've requested for the item) gets it first. For new players, standard loot rules are as follows:

- Greed all BOE (Binds on Equip) Greens. You can AH it yourself for money (mounts cost a heck of a lot of gold).
- Pass all BOP (Binds on Pick Up) items (Greens, Blues, Purples - haha). We'll distribute according to class, followed by level. If no one wants, then we'll roll for it - to sell to vendor or to DE it (in which case, the enchanter in the group will pick it up).
- Pass on all recipes, formulas, plans. Group leader will Need them and then transfer to Guildbank also after the run. You can request the items from the bank.

5. Professions. Please do not charge guildies for items made or enchanted. Let's be nice here and help everyone. At most, ask them to AH the mats if you do not have the mats. No tips expected. Or should be.

Guild bank is Eahlferend. Request policy is:

1. Item will be placed on duckiebank (please download the addon, if you haven't already).

2. For 48 hours it will be in the bank, after which it will be AH'ed and the money sent to the guildie who submitted it. Decided that this was a tad too complicated... you guys can sell your own stuff. Guild bank will accept only BOE blues and up. If there are greens, it will be those picked up by Cuthalion/ Alethra/ Tercul; makes the money side of things easier. Same rules. Will be up for 48 hours (or as soon as I'm online to update the guild bank) and then AHed. Check duckiebank often.

3. You may request for the item in advance for your level, but if there's someone else in the same class who have requested for the item and gets to the level before you, it will go to him/her.

In any case, if people are having trouble questing or levelling, here's a guide (but feel free to contact one of the officers to help you if you really can't solo):

Levelling 1-35
Levelling 35-70

Let's all have fun here.

Tips for Levelling.

Got this off Osiris' rogue guide. This man is quite the leet rogue but I thought that some of this might be useful for you guys.


Green is good. Try to hold off from going into new zones until the mobs are green to you. Killing mobs and doing quests 3-4 levels below you is ideal. The quests will be a joke and you will chew through the mobs with ease. It’s very easy to destroy your XP per hour by going after mobs your level or higher. You get the same XP from a level 61 quest as you do at 58 and 66. Just don’t let them turn grey.

I never used to be a big fan of quests. I have changed my mind on this since The Burning Crusade. There are so many good resources out there for finding info on quests. is the best. It will tell you where to go and what to do. The important thing is that you do the quests quickly. Don’t spend an hour looking for one stupid quest objective. Look it up and get it done. Your XP per hour will be amazing.

Do all of the quests in your zone except the group ones and knock all of your group quests out with others at the same time.

Try to keep a pace of no less than 5 quests completed per hour.

Why Am I Leveling So Slowly?

It's not a race. I'm not here to tell you that you need to go 1-70 in 8 days played. But if you're looking to level at a reasonable pace, here are some tips:

Avoid excuses not to level. I've seen a lot of people do anything that they can to keep from leveling. I've seen people spend days trying to gather the mats to craft one item at level 20. You want to go through a bit of trouble to complete a difficult quest because you really want the reward? Fine. Spend an hour. Don't let crafting get in your way of leveling when that item will be replaced with an easy to obtain quest reward 3 levels later. And please stop asking for a high level to run you through instances. There's nothing in WC that will make your grind so much easier that it's worth spamming channels for an hour straight. Sometimes I will ask guildmates to run me through instances that I know they can solo demolish an instance in 30 minutes. If I have 4 quests I can knock out in a short period of time, fine, but for the most part I don't run instances at all when leveling.

Set a goal. It's Thursday night, you have all of your crap done at home and you now have 6 hours of game time before you need to go to bed. Where do you expect to be by the end of the night? Set realistic goals. To expect to hit levels 14, 15 and 16 is perfectly reasonable. To expect to do 67, 68 and 69 in six hours is not. Try longer term goals. “I plan to be at level 44 by the end of the weekend”.

Addons To Have

Not a must, but good for everything we need to do:

KTM Threatmeter - Useful in a group/raid. Makes sure you don't overtake the tank in aggro either through damage or healing done.

Titan Panel - Shows everything you have on hand: money, ammo, durability and repair costs, etc.

Duckiebank - Grants access to what Eahlferend has in the bank.

Healbot - For the pallies, priests and other healzorzz in the game.

These downloads can be taken off There are others, but not needed at the moment.

That was silly: left out the schedule.

Not set in stone, mind you, but here it is:

Monday to Wednesday - Group quests/ power levelling (by which I don't mean having a Level 70 babysit you, but refer to the guides). Also try to pair up with other guildies - they can learn their skills and so can you.

Thursday - Assistance Night. Just ask, we'll come.

Friday to Saturday - Instance runs. Mostly farming now. Leave a comment on the webpage to vote for which one we'd go for. If there're more than one, then we'll see who's left to power level (the twink way) you guys.

Sunday - Level 70 instances for Outland rep. Or more Azeroth instance runs if we can't find us a tank.

Use this page to find out who's around your level (the sidebars update automatically) and then if they're on, you guys can probably level together.

Terz (Cuthalion/ Alethra/ Tercul/ Eahlferend)

re: guild roster ----->

I thought it would be nice have a guild "roster" that we could all see when we check in to the site. We can see who has levelled, and also which professions and what levels various guildies are at.

If anyone can figure out how to move the banners to a sidebar (and make the side bar wide enough to accommodate them) so that we don't lose sight of the first post on this page, that'd be great ... anyone with better skillz than me at layout?

Right: that should do it.

Also: can someone invite my Shammy, Tostig, to the guild? =)

Almost forgot: nice video on warcraft. Episode 2 is already out.
