This page contains a few forums posts that all applicants should be familiar with before applying to Lacrimosa. If you have any questions please feel free to talk to one of our guilds officers. A list of the officers can be found on our site.
Core Team Raids:
Tuesday 11:30 pm – 3:00 am (EST)
Wednesday 12:00 pm – 3:00 am (EST)
Sunday 11:30 pm –3:00 am (EST)
Currently the guild provides Cauldrons and Feasts.
Raiders are also required to provide their own buff foods, stat-potions (e.g. Volcanic), and buff/ability reagents to last the entire night of raiding.
Guild Ranks & Responsibilities:
The primary raider rank, these folks have priority for invitations to progression raids as long as they're fulfilling the responsibilities they take on when they accept a spot on the team at this rank. These are:
Attendance: Bottom line we can't raid without players. We expect near 100% on-time attendance from our core team. Exceptions will be made only if they are communicated in time to fill your missing spot. We only have about 10 hours of raiding per week, which is not much for a progression guild. It is essential that we start on time and with a full group.
Execution and playership: To be the best team we can be, players must maximize their individual potential. This goes for skill in our class and role as well as well as understanding and working with boss mechanics.
Sportsmanship: We play on a team and therefore must be team players.
These folks are back-up for the Core Team. When filling in for the Core Team, they are expected to maintain the attendance, execution, playership, and sportsmanship of the Core Team. We will do our best to provide runs for Alternates each week for those that don't get in on a Core Team run. Alternates may be asked to step in on a progression run if a Core Team member is absent or if there are issues with a Core Team member.
A Loot Council is a pretty simple way for the guild to distribute loot and the most popular way to distribute loot in many of the high end raiding guilds. The council will consider several different factors when deciding who will receive a item.
Some advantages of using a loot council:
More value on size of upgrade
Allows the guild to better gear the raid for the encounters.
Able to reallocate gear to the different roles (tank, heal, dps) as needed for progression
