Resonance is a progressive raiding guild. Our guild policies require members to do things we feel are in the best interest of the guild's success. We strive to provide a friendly environment for end-game content and realize real life is more important than WoW.
Behavior As a guild member you are expected to:
Give the guild a good name
Not beg, ninja loot, steal, or exploit
Refrain from trash talk about other players or guilds
Help fellow guild members. In return they will help you.
Not whine constantly to the entire guild. If you have a real problem, talk to an officer in tells or take it to the forums.
Officers are here to take care of our own. If you have a problem PLEASE let us know. We cannot read your mind; you have to tell us.
This is also a guild for second chances. You may meet some guild members you might not think you will like. Please keep rumors to yourself and give that person another chance. If there was previous, serious harassment issue let our officers know.
Players who exhibit abusive behavior while in our guild will be kicked promptly. It is everyone’s duty to report witnessed abuse to our officers. We need everyone’s help to keep our guild atmosphere friendly and drama free.
Players who, for whatever reason, create disturbances OR fail to follow raid instructions may be removed from the raid or possibly from the guild. If an officer asks you to do something, do it. If you have a problem with the request, keep it in tells, and do it anyway.
Please think carefully before quitting the guild under duress. Quitting the guild will not help you get your way with things, it will not make anyone feel sorry for you, and it will certainly not be evidence that you have a valid point in any argument. Leaving is your sign to us that you have given up on us and our efforts to work things out. Players who leave under duress will not be invited back without penalty, if at all. We do not appreciate the drama it creates. Please talk with officers if you are unhappy. We will do our best to help create a solution.
Guild applications are public for a reason. If we see your application to another guild, you could be removed from this guild. Applications to another guild are dealt with on a case by case basis. If you want to leave, we'd like to know about it. You will only be allowed to apply again if you left on good terms. Keep in mind you will not receive any more notification with regards to your /gkick than you give us. If you don't notify us of your application ahead of time, we won't be inclined to give notice on your /gkick. The door swings both ways.
Recruitment and New Memberships
People seeking to join our guild need to fill out our online application form on this website. A recruitment officer will inform all applicants of the decision unless you applied without meeting the requirements in big bold letters. Please do not contact officers in game to ask about your status. However, if you have other questions feel free to contact us via forum message or in game. New members will gain access to the membership pages of this website via their membership application. New recruits MUST attend 66% of the raids (including being on time) for one month and reach the minimum required EP to become a raider. If after the first month you are below the minimum attendance, you may be removed from the guild with no prior notice.
Guild Rank System
Rank, much like respect, is something you earn. Attendance is a qualifier for a promotion to raider rank or above, however it is not the only factor that decides rank. At the end of the month in which your attendance meets the requirements for advancement you are then allowed to approach an officer for a promotion. At this point an officer will give you their opinion, or the consensus of what the officers discussed, on whether you are ready for the promotion. If you are approved then you will be promoted, if not you and the officer will discuss why you were not promoted and what you can do to get to that level.
Raider = 66%-100% attendance
Initiate 66% attendance required for one month to attain raider rank and stay in the guild.
Member / Friends & Family = 0% to 66% attendance
F&F rank will never get into raids over a raiding rank (Raider and higher). This does not mean that you will not get into raids. It does mean, however, that we will be recruiting for that class until Casual raiders are not needed. If you are F&F rank and would like to be considered for a raiding rank, please let an officer know. If we believe that you truly can and want to be a raider you will be promoted to initiate status. You will then follow the process and requirements of other new recruits.
If you have questions about your rank, talk to an officer.
Officers: Officers are the people who do work for the guild. Every officer is 18 years of age or older and has duties that help keep our guild running. Officers deal with member problems, plan raids, make strategies, write web pages, invent and debate the content of the rules you are reading now, and more.
Please view the Officer List to contact any of our officers.
Candidates for a new officer are nominated by current officers.
Raiding with Resonance All raiders are required to be prepared for the raid. This includes, but is not limited to having your own flasks, pots, and food appropriate to your class and spec. You will be required to use these in a situation where feasts and cauldrons are not available, or cauldron flasks have expired.
Full raid buffs are also required. If you do not have a buff you need at any time while raiding please politely whisper a member of that class for the correct buff. Some buffs are coordinated to be handed out by multiple players, or even by class and spec. In these situations if you do not receive the buff in a timely fashion please whisper your class lead or another officer to insure you get your correct buffs.
Raid Selection (Invites) Raid nights are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday all other nights are "off nights" which means you are free to do what you want. On Raid nights invites will start around 11:15pm server. Raid begins at 11:30pm server. All raiders are expected to be on time. Raid composition on progression content will be decided by the raid leader as to what offers the best chance of success.
Our raid has always had some reserved spots. Reserved players will get into the raid before others that may have been waiting. The following spots are reserved and will be held open when necessary.
Off Tank(s) (number determined by raid location and raid leader)
Healers (number determined by raid location and raid leader)
DPS (number determined by raid location and raid leader)
Even though we have general rules and try to keep things as fair as possible, we also need to play the characters that will ensure the success of our raid.
Wait List If you are in the raid, you are on the list. You don't need to whisper anyone to get on the list if you are in the raid. You also do not need to be online to be on the list. You may be on an alt, but you MUST be in Vent and able to respond immediately.
However, if you are called to raid and are unable to raid when called, you will be removed and no longer gain EP. You also risk losing the EP you may have accumulated that night.
When we pull replacements from the wait list into the raid, we fill the empty raid slot according to needs of a successful raid. We might occasionally invite someone as a placeholder when we are short on another class. If we are short on healers, but no healers are available, we might invite DPS to hold those places until more healers log in.
When you are called to be in the raid, if you are AFK, not in the guild, not in vent or if you refuse to join you lose your EP for the evening. It wastes everyone’s time to deal with players who aren't ready to raid when called.
Wait List EP While you are on the wait list, you still receive full EP. There is no difference between EP earned by those inside the instance and those that are waiting.
